“Oh no–I need to order three more wedding invitations, and I need them overnighted! They were supposed to be mailed out yesterday!”
“At least ten invitations got lost in the mail. Help! I need extras ASAP!”
One wedding planning task clients tend to overlook is knowing how many wedding invitations to order.
The above snippets are from emails I’ve seen from panicked brides, weeks away from the big day, who were short just a few invitations. You want to avoid this scenario, right? (And I’m guessing, you’d also like to avoid paying overnight shipping plus rush printing fees plus the high cost of ordering a small print run.)
Mistakes happen to the best of us–I get it! But knowing how many wedding invitations you need is one scenario you can avoid with proper planning.

Whether you're early in the wedding planning process or one step away from hiring your stationer, today's post is perfect for you.
