How many invitations do I need?
The most common wedding invitation mistake is ordering too few invitations. As a general rule of thumb if you have 100 guests, you will need about 60 invitations, so the number of invitations needed will be about 60% of the total number of guests. Having said this, we always recommend you purchase 10-15% extra.
Most common reasons why you will need extra invitations:
- Your parents forgot to invite Aunty Annie and Cousin Mickey
- You accidentally left someone off the list or decided to invite some extra people
- If you are handwriting the names and addresses you will want to order more in case of spelling mistakes, blotches, crooked/messy writing.
- Your venue has charged you for 100 people but you get only 90 “yes” responses – you will want to invite some extra guests.
- Your partner had a big night, was feeling friendly and decided to invite 10 more people
Who should receive an invitation?
- You will need one invitation per couple or family (you should include underage children’s names on the invitation if they are invited).
- All guests over 18 should receive their own invitation (and you should be clear about whether they are invited or if they are allocated a “Guest or Partner” to attend with them)
- You, your immediate family and your bridal party will all also need invitations; they will surely want to keep them as a keepsake.
- You may know in advance that some close family members will probably not be able to make it, however you should always invite them, even if they are overseas. There are two reasons, first they might surprise you and second, they may well be offended of feel slighted if they are not given the opportunity to thank you for the invitation and politely decline.
Is there a minimum order quantity?
Yes, all items have a minimum order quantity. Please note that the prices fall dramatically – up to 60% per piece as the quantity ordered increases.
