This is a common question, when do I send out my invitations or announcement? Each occasion has a different time frame. Here are the most common scenarios.
Thank You Cards: No matter if the occasion is a baby shower or a bridal shower; it is best to send a thank you card within 10 days of the event.
Party Invitations: Except for weddings (see below) it is best to have the party invitation out a minimum of three weeks prior.
Announcements: It always seems like there is something to announce be it a birth of a child or a graduation. It best to send the announcement out within 6 months of the big occasion.
Wedding Save-the-Dates: Save-the-dates are a growing trend, but are not necessary. However, if you plan on sending out save-the-dates make sure to do so by 6 months of the planned wedding date.
Wedding Invitations: It is best that guests have 4-6weeks to RSVP for a wedding. Therefore, it is best to have the wedding invitations in the mail 8 weeks prior to the wedding date.
If you have any questions on any other types of etiquette let me know.
