Wedding invitations are a very important part of the wedding planning process, but they can be confusing and overwhelming. With so many different options available for designs, sizes, colours, and materials it’s easy to make mistakes when ordering your invites. To help you avoid common blunders here are five mistakes to watch out for when ordering wedding invitations!



1. Ordering an Invite Per Guest Rather Than Per Couple or Group:

Wedding invitations should be ordered per couple or group to avoid sending out too many invites. This not only helps keep costs down, but also ensures that everyone is invited to the same event. When ordering, be sure to double check how many people will be attending so you don’t over-order.


2. Timeframe:

Ordering your wedding invitations too late or too early can lead to potential issues with delivery and production times. Ideally, Wedding invitations should be sent out 4 - 6 weeks before the wedding day to give guests enough time to respond and make travel plans if necessary.


3. Not Ordering Extra Invitations:

It is always a good idea to order extra wedding invitations in case of unexpected guests or if there are any mistakes on the original invitations. Ordering extra invites can save you time and stress.


4. RSVP Dates Are Important:

It’s important not to forget about RSVP dates when ordering your wedding invitations! Give guests a generous timeline (at least 2 weeks) for responding and include a response card with pre-addressed envelopes if possible, for easy mailing back of responses. Be sure to provide both an email address and phone number where guests can contact you with any questions they might have as well as a deadline by which they must submit their response. This will help ensure that you get accurate numbers in advance so that you can plan accordingly for seating arrangements, food orders, etcetera.


5. Read The Fine Print:

When it comes to ordering your wedding invitations, you don't want to get stuck with something you're not 100% happy with! That's why it's important to read the fine print and make sure that the company you select allows extra edits. Some companies will charge extra fees each time you request a change; however, Vintage Prints offer unlimited edits so you can ensure all the details are just right before they go to print. Eventually, when your perfect wedding stationery is ready, Vintage Prints wants you to have peace-of-mind - so not one thing goes to print until you're satisfied! Talk about happiness guaranteed!


In conclusion, make sure to keep in mind the 5 common mistakes mentioned above. Above all else, trust your instinct throughout the process and make sure you’re working with a company that values quality customer support. After all, this is your special day and you should enjoy every minute!
