POSTAGE and Quantities: The number one tip you need when it comes to sending out your invites, is that your guest list number does not equal the number of invites your sending. Do the math on how many couples you have ahead of time, and you won't make the common mistake of ordering about double the invites you need.
Your invitations are the first impression guests get about your wedding, so take time to get it right. Look at sites selling invitations online and in magazines such as Wedding Ideas as they can provide inspiration. You will soon learn what you do and don't like.
