One of the first clients I received from friends, families, and wedding clients alike is about when to send wedding invitations. The answer is, it depends, but typically wedding invitations should be mailed 2-3 months before your wedding day.
Though this 2-3 month target timing is a great starting point to figure out when you need to start the wedding invitation design process, there are more dates and deadlines to consider:
At Tuesday Grace Designs, I create custom Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations inspired by your wedding style, which means the production process is around 2 months long. Keeping that in mind, you should order your Save the Dates 1 year before your wedding and your invitations 5 months before your wedding.
Typically, Save the Dates are sent 8 – 10 months before your wedding, and if you’re having a longer engagement, you can send them even sooner!

Here are a few tips on when to send wedding invitations. Wedding invitations are usually sent 2-3 months prior to your wedding. I recommend sending them closer to 3 months before, so you have time to follow-up with friends and family for their RSVPs and meal preferences. This means, you should order your wedding invitations 5 months before your wedding.

When it comes to all of your paper goods and signs for your wedding day (from welcome bag itineraries to dinner menus to seating charts), I recommend ordering them at least 3 months before your wedding.
You should also plan to have your final guest list at least 30 days before your wedding so your stationer can make sure the place cards, seating charts, etc. are created in time!
