Ordering a few more invitations or announcements than your guest list is suggested to ensure you have a couple extras for keepsakes and for last minute guest additions. It is much more cost effective to order extras than to place a new order!

Etiquette Verbiage

Etiquette: Verbiage

Wedding
Please click here to see sample wedding invitation language. Both traditional and more modern verbiage are acceptable for most occasions. Remember, etiquette is meant to serve as a guideline, helping to build relationships, but should not be followed at the cost of damaging a relationship. Reply card deadlines should include a buffer of at least one week before the final guest count is needed to give you time to contact guests who have yet to confirm their attendance.

Baby
Traditionally baby announcements include the babe’s first, middle and last name (as well as the name they will be called if different) as well as their birth details; birth date, weight and length. Adoption specific announcements can also include the “gotcha date” of when the child was welcomed into their new family. Parent and sibling names (in order of age) typically follow the announcement of the newest child.
