wedding invitation mistakes

Your wedding invitations are the first impression your guests will get of your wedding.
There are several mistakes you can make when it comes to wedding invitations. Here is a list of mistakes that you should avoid to spare you costs, inconvenience and embarrassment.

#1 Proof read your invitations before sending them to print:
To avoid having 200 invitations with a misspelled name or the wrong address printed for your wedding, proofread a sample of the invitations several times. Ask other members of your family to read it as well before you give your final approval to the invitation designer.

#2 Always order extra envelopes and invitations:
Whether you are writing the names of your guests on the envelopes, hiring a calligrapher or having them digitally printed, mistakes can still happen. It's always good to have extras on hand for any guests you may have forgotten to include in your final list.

#3 Properly address your guests envelopes:
Make sure that you, or whoever is responsible for the invitations, know the professional etiquette of addressing your guests. You don’t want to offend anyone by forgetting the spouse or not using the correct title (Mr., Mrs. or Dr.).

#4 Don't mail your invitations too late:
Start the process of your invitations at least 4 months ahead of your wedding, in order to avoid any last minute mistakes. It is recommended that you mail out your invitations 3 months before your wedding day. You need to give out international guests more notice. These guests will need to make travel arrangements that require advanced notice of your wedding day.
