Sending Replies (including information for Guests)

A reply to a Wedding invite should be sent promptly and as soon as a decision upon attendance has been made.


The ‘correct’ way to respond is via post with a formal acceptance card the preferred method. In some cases, an acceptance card may be enclosed with the invite although, in most cases, guests will be required to purchase and post their own. A pre-printed acceptance card will only require the sender to indicate their attendance/non-attendance by crossing out the appropriate sentence then completing the card with their name(s).


As an alternative, a blank card of some description could be purchased and filled in as appropriate. An acceptable method for registering attendance/non-attendance is by telephone, although postal responses are preferred.


If guests have any questions about the day or they simply wish to confirm that the couple has received their acceptance card they should feel free to call either the couple themselves or another member of the Wedding party (this is where parents and future in-laws come to the fore!). Many sources will advise that invites are sent two to three months before the Big Day, but in today’s modern society where time is precious, unless 'save the date' cards have been sent well in advance of the day, we would strongly advise getting invites out asap – around 6 months before the day would be ideal.
