Frequently Asked Questions about Wedding Invitations
When do you send out wedding invitations?
Wedding invitations are traditionally sent out 6-8 weeks before your wedding day. This gives your guests plenty of time to make hotel arrangements or let you know they won't be able to make it.
The exception being if you have a destination wedding or if friends or family are traveling from out of town. In this case, you should send out your invites around three months ahead of time so guests can book airfare, hotels, and make other arrangements to ensure they can celebrate with you. Use our wedding invitation timeline to learn when to order and mail wedding invitations.
What should a wedding invitation say?
In general, your wedding invites should include the following details:
- Who's hosting
- A request to attend the wedding
- The names of the bride and groom
- The date and time
- The location (including the venue, city, and state)
- Reception information
- Dress code
- A separate RSVP card for guests to send back to you

How much should you spend on wedding invitations?
Your wedding invitation budget is entirely personal and depends on several different factors, including stationery material, details, and designs, which can all factor into the final price. At Truly Engaging, you can find a wide range of wedding invitations that suit your unique style and personal tastes, everything from art deco to rustic at prices that fit your budget. Use our wedding budget calculator to organize your budget.
When should the RSVP deadline be for a wedding?
Your wedding RSVP deadline should generally be about 4-6 weeks before the event. You'll want to check with your wedding caterer and/or venue as well for their requirements on when they need the final head count. Give yourself about a week of lead time between your printed RSVP date on the invitation and the date when you give the venue your final guest count. This allows you to tie up any loose ends and track down anyone that may not have responded.
Can you rush my order?
To maximize quality and fairness for all customers, we are unable to rush production on your order. However, we offer several expedited shipping options during checkout. Already ordered? Please contact us to upgrade shipping.
Can you print my wedding guest addresses on my envelopes?
Yes! For wedding stationery, we offer guest address imprinting for an additional cost. This service is available online as a Coordinating Item inside our Design Tool.
How far in advance should guests be requested to RSVP?
The RSVP deadline is usually 2–3 weeks before your wedding date. This deadline will give you time to contact anyone who did not reply, and also time to give the final head count to the caterer or venue.
What if my wedding date has changed?
Sometimes, life throws unexpected things at you and your wedding date has to change. No one likes to think about it happening, but it's good to be prepared for anything. Our customers can make various changes to their designs up until you approve the proof sample for printing. While Truly Engaging is unable to accept returns on personalized products after proof approval, we're here to help. Our team will work with you to make sure you have beautiful stationery for your updated wedding invitations.
When should I order wedding invitations?
Typically, you should send your invitations 4-8 weeks before your wedding. If you're having a destination wedding, you might want to send invitations a few months in advance. Our turnaround time varies depending on your chosen design elements, ranging from 4 - 17 business days, including production and shipping. While it may only take a couple of weeks for your custom wedding invitations to reach you, ordering wedding invites online a month before you plan on sending them is safe.
What are the best wedding invitations sizes?
At Truly Engaging, we offer a wide variety of wedding invitation shapes and sizes. We believe it's important to pick the design that fits your needs and desires. That being said, there is not a single "best" design, but an endless selection of items to look through and consider. Contact us for help with customizing your wedding invitations for your big day.
