    Often times here at The Social Page we have couples place orders for invitations, and when asked how many they need to order, the couple looks at one another, does a quick scroll through their smart phone and says “I think 80 should be enough… yeah. Let’s go with 80.”

    Then it comes time to address the envelopes and put them in the mail, they realize they didn’t order enough to cover everyone on their guest list. Sometimes, after mailing them out, they run in to an old friend that they now want to invite, or they realize they forgot to invite a distant relative. Suddenly they need 10 more invitations, ASAP!  If you are looking to price out invitations but haven’t gone over your list yet, there is a formula to help give you a starting number.

    The number of guests you are inviting divided by 2, then add 10%. For example: 150 guests divided by 2= 75 + (10%) 15= 90 invitations.

    This is a good starting point, but never works better than a true list. This is because some couples are inviting more families than others, some invite many more singles than couples, and so on.

    Remember, it’s one invitation per household, not per person!

    The best way to avoid running into these issues is to write a numbered list of each family and each non-couple adult you are inviting:

    If you are inviting Mr. and Mrs. Jones and their 2 children, they account for one invitation.

    Let’s say you are inviting John Smith and his mother Anne Smith who lives in his home now. Proper etiquette suggests sending separate invitations to John Smith and Anne Smith. So, these two adults in the same household should account for two invitations.

    Likewise, if you are inviting adult siblings who live in the same household, or adult friends who share a home, you should send separate invitations for those guests. This is something to consider when you are making your list.

    Your single friends who may want to bring a date should be addressed “Andrew Parker & Guest”, and he and his guest will account for one invitation.

    It is ALWAYS better to have a few extra invitations than to be short and scurry to buy more. It may take time to process a Re-Order and is often much less cost-effective than initially ordering extras (due to shipping costs of certain materials, price brackets for printing, etc). Brides find themselves stressed out from worrying about time and money while wedding planning, so avoid stress where possible by implementing the simple measure of list making!

    We were lucky enough to be a part of this fantastic photo shoot which makes us want to have a picnic right now!!!

    The Stationery we provided was a perfect match to the theme. Using a chalk board style font and teaming it with kraft, gave it that rustic, fun feel.

    The photographs turned out amazing and really showed off our work thanks to Christy Swanberg !! You rock!Take a look and see what you think. Is it some

    thing you might consider for your wedding?
