There are many articles out there recommending a timeline for your wedding invitations, but we have done the research for you and compiled a list tailored to the Indian bride. Finally there is an Indian Invitation Timeline to help you organize! Before you send out your Save the Date cards, create your wedding website and include all the key information about your wedding.
There are many opinions on when to send your thank you cards, but we recommend mailing them within 6 months of your wedding date.
*Our community is notorious for sending back late RSVP cards, so by sending your invitations out early and requesting RSVPs 1 month prior to your wedding date, you’ll have a little extra time to make phone calls to those delinquent wedding guests.
