  For your special day … Beautiful Invitations

There’s still so much to do, but at least you’ve made the big decisions. You’ve settled on a date and time. Selected your wedding ceremony and reception sites. It’s time to start thinking about getting the word out to your guests.

You want to get your invitations in the mail 6-8 weeks in advance of your wedding date. That means you should schedule plenty of time in advance to order your invitations, announcements, enclosure cards and the rest of your stationery needs. Don’t forget you need to allocate time to address and stuff those envelopes too. That’s why PrescottWeddings.com recommends ordering invitations 4 months before your wedding date.

Whether your wedding is formal or casual, invitations set the tone for your wedding. They’re available in an array of different letterings, ink colors, foil and envelope linings. Here are some of this season’s latest designs to reflect your style and personality surrounding your special day.
