Planning Wedding Invitation Stuffing
There are so many tasks to perform as you plan your wedding that it can quickly become overwhelming. One such time consuming and rather tedious task is stuffing, addressing and mailing wedding invitations. As monotonous as it may be, this is also a vital step in the preparation process. Fortunately, there is wedding invitation stuffing etiquette to follow that will help you streamline the procedure.
Before you begin stuffing envelopes, there are a few considerations to think about. Determine who will be responsible for stuffing the wedding invitations. Ultimately, the job falls on the shoulders of the bride. However, assisting the bride with this task is considered a duty of the maid or matron of honor. Ideally the groom, bridesmaids and family members will pitch in to help as well, making faster and lighter work of the task.
Set aside a chunk of time when everyone can spread out what is needed and focus on addressing and stuffing wedding invitations. Depending on the size of the guest list, you might need a weekend afternoon or an entire day. While you can certainly break the task up over several days, completing the job in one sitting will eliminate confusion that may occur while addressing the inner and outer envelopes.
It is also a good idea to stuff one complete invitation and weigh it on a postal scale so that you can determine the amount of postage required. Purchase enough decorative postage stamps, which look much nicer than plain stamps or metered stamps from the Post Office, for all of the invitations.
