FAQs

  • Introduction

    Your wedding invitation is an opportunity to make an impression on your guests. When someone receives a wedding invitation, they feel excited about what's to come and honored to be included in the celebrations. That's why many people take their wedding invitation choice very seriously and book a professional to help them through the process. Before you hire someone, review the frequently asked questions about wedding invitations below. The answers to these questions can help you make an informed decision about who to hire for assistance with your invitations, what a professional can do, and how much it might cost.

  • What do you need in a wedding invitation?

    A wedding invitation should include essential details about the planned nuptials, clear instructions on how guests should RSVP, and a method for guests to contact the couple with further questions. Some extravagant wedding invitations come with small gifts or in decorative boxes to kick off the celebrations.

  • What information should be included in a wedding invitation?

    At the very least, a wedding invitation should include the following:

    • The couple’s name
    • The wedding date, time, and venue
    Other details you may choose to include are:
    • Who's hosting the wedding (for example, parents)
    • Any dress code
    • Venue details
    • RSVP information

  • What is included in wedding invitations?

    A wedding invitation can include:

    • The invitation and the envelope it came in
    • An RSVP card with a prestamped envelope for people to respond
    • A picture of the couple
    • A small present (such as chocolates, candy, etc.)
    • Decorations (such as flower petals, glitter, etc.)

  • In what order do you stack wedding invitations?

    Wedding invitations and their included cards should be stacked according to size. The invitation card is the largest, so it goes on the bottom. Tuck the RSVP card into the flap of the reply envelope on top, but don't put the card in the envelope. Reply envelopes should be addressed and stamped.

  • How many people should I invite to my wedding?

    The typical guest count at a wedding is 100-200 people, with an average of 167. The size of the guest list is entirely up to you, though, and you can use your wedding budget as a guide. Another good rule is to only to invite people who really matter to you.

  • How do I choose a wedding invitation style?

    Ideally, the wedding invitation you choose should match or complement the style of your wedding. For example, if you’re having a rustic, country wedding, your wedding invitation should reflect that. Additionally, many people choose a wedding invitation that features the colors they've selected for their wedding.
