Quick wedding Invitation
Here comes the bride full of pride in the beautiful wedding invites that had to be created quickly.
If you’re getting married quickly-between one and six weeks from now there won’t be time to get invitations formally printed and mailed. (There are, however, formal preprinted invitations available with spaces to fill in names, dates, and place, as well as computerized calligraphy services, available at many stationery stores).
If possible, guests should receive an invitation at least two weeks before the wedding. If time is very tight, your parents may send handwritten notes or invite guests personally by telephone, telegram, or Mailgram. Be sure that all information that would be included on a printed · Invitation
-who’s getting married, where, when, style of the service, locations of the reception, R.S.V.P. address, and return address (so that guests know where they may send gifts)-is passed along to guests, however you should spread the word. If you are telephoning, indicate that your parents are the sponsors by saying “Mom and Dad wanted you to be with us…..”
