WEDDING INVITATIONS FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are envelopes included with the price of Minted wedding invitations? Your selected Minted wedding invitations include an outer envelope in a complementary design. This is often the first impression guests have of your wedding style or theme, so make it count! Our envelope guide can help you choose the dimensions, color, flap style and other elements that subtly elevate your nuptial correspondence. You can choose to add an inner envelope for an extra layer of formalness, or go for elegant wedding invitation suites that make it a breeze to coordinate your custom invitations, RSVP cards and envelopes, direction cards and more. And if you need help figuring out how to assemble the invitation pieces, we’ve got you covered there, too.
What should wedding invitations say? Be sure to include the date you’re getting married, the location of the wedding and reception, the time of the wedding, and the names of the people being married. If it applies, you might also want to mention who is hosting the wedding and what the dress code will be. Don’t forget to include an RSVP card with a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
When should wedding invitations be mailed out? Most people mail their invitations out 6-8 weeks before the wedding. If you’re expecting a lot of out of town guests, you may want to mail them out even earlier so they have time to make travel arrangements.
Is it OK to send wedding invitations online? Wedding guests still expect a paper invitation in the mail to reply to for your nuptials. Not to mention that with all of the email filters we have these days, your email invitation could very well get marked as spam and never reach an inbox. We live in a modern world and everything tends to be available online, which is why a wedding website is highly recommended to accompany your invitation. When you choose your invitations at Minted, you can match your website style to your wedding stationery.
Do you put last names on wedding invitations? Yes, it is common to include the first and last names of both the bride and groom or bride and bride or groom and groom.
How should I address my invitations? This can get pretty complex pretty quickly! Generally, you address the envelopes to an entire family as one entity. You can list out the individual family members on the RSVP card if you feel clarification is needed. The same goes for couples, they receive one invitation addressed to both. Single people are given a nudge to bring a date by simply adding "plus guest" to the end of their name.
Does the man or woman’s name go first? If you’re going for what is traditional, you would place the woman’s name first on the invitation. Feel free to deviate from tradition and make your own choice about whose name should go first. Marriages are about love, so the name order is not important.
Did we answer all your questions? Possibly not, but we have a full guide to wedding invitation etiquette available for you to read.
