Your wedding is an event and with any event, there are a few tasks that you will need to think of and ultimately organise.
When it comes to your wedding stationery, I have outlined the ideal timeline for when you need to order, mail your save the dates, invitations & thank you cards and prepare for the other stationery you might require on the day of your wedding.
Lets great straight into it.
Presuming you will be engaged for 12 months, below is a suggested timeline for all of the different wedding stationery items you might have and when you will need to organise and send them.
Prepare your wedding guest listList down everyone you want to invite and finalise when your list meets your family, budget and quantity requirements.

Mail wedding invitationsI always suggest sending out your wedding invitations around 3 - 4 months before your wedding date as I suggest you should have an RSVP return date at 5 - 6 weeks before your wedding date. Read more here as to why this is so important.
This will then give your guests 6 - 10 weeks to receive and respond to your wedding invitation.
Also make sure you have the postage stamps ready for those invitations you plan to mail. Another option is to hand-deliver invitations to guest you will see within the next week or two.
