As we enter "invitation season" (typically invites go out 2-3 months before the wedding), we thought it may be a good idea to share some tips that we have learned over the past year when planning a wedding during these crazy times. We have created a list of tips below to help you navigate the process and connected with our local stationers, Dulce Press and Pink Polka Dot, to be sure you have the tools you need for a successful invitation!
If it is time to order your invitations and you are not quite sure if you may have to postpone or not, be sure that the only piece of your suite that has a date on it is the invitation. That way if you do have to change the date for any reason, you only have to reprint the invite and not the whole suite!
If you had to downsize your wedding, it can feel like the worst thing you have to do! Unfortunately, you will have to let the guests that are no longer invited know. Take a peek at this sample from Dulce Press on how you can do that.
With so much unknown, even after the exciting news last week, it is still a good idea to include a note about your plans due to COVID.
"I recommend including some COVID verbiage to your invitation suite (whether you add to an existing details card, or create a small additional insert). This lets your guests know you are taking the precautions seriously and also acknowledges that plans may have to change depending on current regulations. Most importantly, it will remind your guests to continue monitoring your website for updates!" Jen, Pink Polka Dot
Jen from Dulce Press recommends telling guests ahead of time that your celebration will be practicing social distancing. "If you will be supplying masks and asking them to wear them throughout the wedding let them know! Then they can make an educated decision beforehand rather than be unexpectedly confronted at the event. One of our favorites is sending a little note saying "we want you there but of course we will understand if you can’t or chose not to come".
With the new announcement from the Governor last week, your plans may have changed, yet again. Be sure that you continue to check the Mass.gov website for updates!
Plan. Relax. Enjoy.
