What’s at the top of your To Do List for the wedding? Fiancé? Check. Dress? Check. People who will attend the ceremony? Let’s get on that! Before you send out the invitations, sending out save-the-dates is pretty crucial to planting the wedding date in your guests’ heads. Send the save-the-dates to your guests at least five months in advance. The wedding invitations should be sent out no later than two months in advance with an RSVP due date a month before the wedding. Why so in advance? By sending out invitations and save-the-dates months prior to the wedding, your giving everyone a chance to plan travel arrangements and to schedule off from work ahead of time, and you get a head count on who’s attending early enough to wrap up catering plans—less stress. We’ve found a handful of Austin’s local wedding invitation and save-the-date vendors that are just wonderful.
