Q. When to should we invite our wedding party members?
A. Be sure to allow plenty of time to invite your wedding party members to take part in your day. This will allow them time to save for wedding related expenses and to free up their schedules for wedding related activities.
We recommend that you invite your wedding party 8-10 months before the big day. For destination weddings, ask as soon as venue is booked. This will allow time for wedding party members to block their schedule, save and secure any documents if needed, such as passports.
You will also need to ensure you know how many members you can afford to invite before extending an invitation as well. While wedding party covers own expenses, such as attire and travel if coming from out of town, the couple will provide flowers, transportation to and from reception and ceremony, and gifts. Be sure to determine your wedding party budget before extending invitations.
While it’s important to ask in a timely manner, make sure to only pop the question when confident in your wedding party member selections. Visit our blog post, How To Choose Your Wedding Party, for more on selecting wedding party members!
