Things to consider when planning the invitation

  • A typical invitation package consists of the invitation itself, a cover design, a separate invitation to a reception or party, and an RSVP card and envelope. Depending on your preferences, you may choose to have the invitation in two languages (usually Hebrew and English)
  • Some invitations use a cover. If you're considering this type of design, what kind of imagery would you want. Would you want to do part or all of it yourself?
  • You'll want to send the invitations out 4-6 weeks in advance of the ceremony. When planning, take into account design and printing time:

    It takes about two weeks to design and produce an invitation.
    Printing takes 1-2 weeks. If you don't have an printer, I can recommend one but I ask that you deal with the printer directly.

  • If you need to let a vendor like a caterer know how many people will be coming, it's generally a good idea to check with them before setting the RSVP date.
