Time It Right



Timing is the key when it comes to handing out RSVP invites. Make sure you send your invites six to eight weeks before the week, nothing prior and nothing more delayed, as this will give them just the right time for them to schedule their other plans accordingly around the wedding and not have to cancel coming to your wedding instead.

We all love options even in our day to day chores, so what better way to get rsvp and make your life much smoother by giving your guests some more options, rather than the traditional post card invites. Its only when you have you confirmed guest list you can start off with your seating arrangement, so instead of hounding your guests, all you need to do is give them two or three platform where they can rsvp about their presence. The earlier you have your guest list in place the better for you right?

Choose the right wording

Many times your guests don’t know how to decline an invite or what excuse they can go ahead and give to not make it sound harsh while reverting back to you, so they just land up not getting back to you at all. So, instead of let them choosing their words, you choose your words for them to tick it off on the correct box and revert on the same without having to say one word. Sounds good?
