- DO I NEED TO SEND OUT SAVE THE DATES?
Let us stop you there for a sec. There is no must or mustn’t. The decision is clearly yours and no one will think less of you if you don’t send save the dates before the formal invite. It is though, a great gesture that will make your guests even more Impatient for your wedding.
- DO I NEED TO MENTION MY MAID OF HONOR OR THE BEST MAN?
For us, definitely yes! There are a big part of that day and by mentioning them at your wedding invitation you honor them for their great role they have taken on.
- DO I MENTION A PARENT WHO’S NOT IN LIFE ANYMORE?
This is thin ice. It’s up to you! Normally you don’t mention a parent that has passed, but if you really feel that this is a way to honor them then you should mention them. No one will misunderstand you!
- DO I MENTION THE RECEPTION VENUE ON THE INVITE OR ON A DIFFERENT CARD?
Some years ago, only some of the guests were invited to the reception as well. Then, the reception venue and the invite to it was printed on a different smaller card. Nowadays, all the guests are invited to both the ceremony and the reception. So, it is very classy to all be printed on the same card.
- DO I HAVE TO SEND THANK YOU NOTES?
Yes! A thousand times yes. This is your way to thank your wedding guests for the honor of being on your wedding, their gifts and their wishes. Now, you are not obliged to mail them, but you can place them on their seats at the reception. Trust us, they will all appreciate it!
