If you’ve ever sent out invitations before, you know it can unexpectedly become a big project to undertake. Wedding invitations and save the dates definitely fall in to this category. You have to design them, print them, assemble them, stuff them in envelopes, address them, stamp them and mail them out. It can be very time consuming! The last thing you need is a surprise hurdle thrown in to the mix to make things more complicated. I spoke with a friend over at Announce The Day and assembled a list of the top 3 tips for mailing wedding invitations!
1. Mailing square envelopes costs more
Pick the size of your invitation with caution. Although it may seem strange, the post office actually charges an additional handling fee for square shaped letters. Square shaped envelopes cost an extra 22 cents per envelope, so you may want to rethink the size if you have a large guest list.
2. Get addresses early
This may seem like a no-brainer, but it makes a huge difference! It helps reduce the rush once it comes time to address the envelopes. You can also look into ideas such as Google Forms to help organize a digital list for you!
3. Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for RSVP
Do you need guests to RSVP to your wedding? It can be difficult relying on your guests to respond on time and then having to track them down to get their response. To make it easier on your guests, include a self-addressed, pre-stamped envelope with the invitation. That way your guests only need to mark the card and put it in the mail! Simplicity is key for the RSVP.
