10-12 months before the wedding:

If you know that you want to send out save the date cards and you want your entire suite to match, start researching invitation designers.

6-8 months before the wedding:

Send out save the date cards.  If you are not going to send out save the date cards, about 6 months before the wedding is a good time to start researching stationers.

4-6 months before the wedding:

During this time, you will choose your invitation design as well as any other enclosure cards.  If any of your day of items will need to be sent to a calligrapher (such as place cards) order these as well.  If you need help finding a calligrapher, your invitation designer can help.

3-5 months before the wedding:

Order any remaining day of items such as programs, menus or escort cards.  You may also want to order thank you cards now.

8-12 weeks before the wedding:

Address the invitation and reply card envelopes. Now is also the time to buy postage.  You may want to consider custom stamps.

6-10 weeks before the wedding:

Mail your invitations.

Within 3 months after the wedding:

Send out thank you cards. Live Happily Ever After!

Thanks Jessica! Go see Odd Duck Press‘s website for more beautiful invitations.
