Are you planning an upcoming event but aren’t quite sure when to put your invitations in the mail? This list will come in handy. To allow plenty of time for attendees to plan and for you to organize, especially if food is involved, here is a guide for sending out your invitations.
3 to 6 weeks:
Anniversary party invitations
Formal dinner party invitations
2 – 8 weeks:
1 – 4 weeks:
Cocktail party invitations
A few days to 2 – 3 weeks:
Housewarming party invitations
Tea party invitations
Of course, allow enough time to gather mailing addresses and to hand address and prepare the invitations for mailing. Keep in mind that if you are expecting invitees to travel long distances, allow plenty of time for them to make their own travel reservations. Have a great party!
