With 5 years in business, Marlie Renee Designs has been providing her couples a fun planning experience to bring their visions to life. Below are Marlie Renee's top tips when it comes to wedding stationery.
Save the Dates
Marlie Renee suggests sending Save the Dates out 6-10 months prior to your wedding; 8 months out being ideal! If you are getting married on or close to a holiday, send your Save the Dates out at the 10-12 month mark so that guests can plan accordingly. The same goes for weddings that many guests will be traveling for (destination) so that they can take off of work and book flights and hotels if necessary.
Plan on sending your wedding invites out 8-12 weeks from your wedding day, 10 weeks out being the sweet spot. She says that RSVP due dates should be about one month before the big day, but ask your NJ wedding venue what they suggest! We agree with Marlie; 1 month is perfect!
Create a wedding website so that guests have a place to find all of the info they'll need for your wedding. Include your website on the Save the Dates and the invitations. With a wedding website, you can make real-time updates and elaborate on all things related to your wedding. You can include your love story, photos, your wedding party, registry, accommodations and transportation, and more!
We are so excited to have Marlie Renee as part of the Bear Brook Valley family and can't wait to see what she creates for our awesome couples! Learn more about Marlie Renee Designs and check out more of her beautiful wedding stationery and signage creations at https://marliereneedesigns.com/.
