Naturally, it’s best to give yourself as much time as possible so that you’re not stressing the week of the wedding. Such big, important events are stressful enough without adding onto it. Here’s when we recommend getting your printed wedding products from About the Print.
Wedding Planner: From Engagement
Every detail leading up to and including the wedding day requires special attention to detail. As soon as you know the date, get your hands on your wedding planner. You’ll be able to keep track of details and dates from the start.
Wedding Invitations: 8-10 Weeks
Ideally, invitations should go out 6-8 weeks from the wedding. Whatever your style of wedding, make sure your guests will have enough time to clear their schedules and, if necessary, save money to make the trip. If it’s a destination wedding where your guests will need to travel, make sure they go out around three months before the big day.
This goes for all the add-ons in your invitation package, like envelopes, belly bands, save the date cards, and response cards!
Wedding Journals: At least 2 months
Remember every detail of the big day! Memories can fade, whether of the engagement, the wedding, or those early days after.
You might want these from when you’re first engaged. One bride kept a journal of the days leading up to her wedding, as did the groom. Once they were married, they traded journals so that the other could see all the things they loved about each other during the last days of their engagement.
Vow books: At least 1 month
How much time do you need to write your vows? This can be highly personal depending on you and your spouse. However, you probably shouldn’t wait until you have less than a month to receive your vow books. Those calm moments to write your vows can get scarcer and scarcer as the wedding date approaches!
Guest Books: At least 3 weeks
Get these ahead of time if you’re inserting photos! If you’re leaving the pages blank, you might not have to rush. Don’t forget the pens!
