I was reading the latest bridal magazine when it occured to me I had not written a blog about Invitations in a long time. Yes, invitation. It doesn't matter what event you are planning, a word of mouth or one years away they all have a time when you have to invite people. Maybe this guideline will help you.
Before this all has started you should have made your appointment with MK Pure Diamond Events and we would be helping you with all these steps and showing you are awesome selection of invitations by Simply Personal.

Send out the Thank You cards you should have already order them. Since people send gifts through out the planning process it is acceptable to send thank you note as you recieve the gifts. Therefore, you won't be overwhelmed when you return from your honeymoon.
Order personalized Couples Stationary if you changed your name. Consider ordering "Couples Business Cards" you can insert in your thank you notes letting your guest know your address and telephone number. MK Pure Diamond Events would enjoy meeting with you Tuesday-Friday, 9-5 to discuss the details.
