Set the Tone ~ Part II

Kate Spade Wedding Ensemble by Crane
Today is part 2 of our discussion on setting the tone for your wedding with save the dates and invitations, and I'm going to advise you on what pieces of the ensemble you will need to consider before you purchase your invitations. Hopefully this will make it easier for you when you discuss invitations with your wedding planner or stationery professional.
These are the possible pieces to consider ~
1. Save the Date - send 9-12 months before the wedding
2. Invitation - remember to order enough for each household and 10% extra
3. Reception Card - if your wedding and reception are in two separate venues
4. Response Card - allows your guests to let you know whether or not they will be coming, and menu choices, if applicable
5. Accommodations Card - if you wish to let your guests know where you have a room block
6. Directions Card - used to provide directions for your guests from the ceremony site to the reception venue
7. Weekend Itinerary - if you have a lot of activities planned for your guests, it is a nice way to let them know what you have planned
8. Sunday Brunch - if you do not wish to send a separate invitation, this is permissible
There you have it, food for thought! If you have questions, just post a comment and I'll be happy to respond.
Happy Planning,
xo, Victoria
