Working out when to send your wedding invitations is simple since there really are no rules.
Traditionally wedding invitations are sent 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding. But you may wish to give your guests more advance notice and send your invitations up to 6 months in advance of the wedding. Sending your wedding invitations well in advance can be useful if...
- You have friends and family who live abroad and need time to plan their trip.
- You are getting married on a week day and your guests may need to book time off work.
- Your wedding falls in the peak season for holidays or on a public holiday.
