- Frequently Asked Questions -
How far in advance should I set my RSVP date?
One month is ideal. It gives time to set seating chart and purchase party favors.
Can I customize my invitation?
Yes, almost all invitations can be customized to reflect your style and colors.
Can I get a sample?
Many invitation vendors will provide a generic sample at no cost. If you want a custom sample a fee will be involved.
What quanitites can I order?
Most vendors require a 50 piece minimum. There are some vendors that will provide a 25 piece minimum.
What are proof charges?
These are fees that most vendors charge to create a mock up of your invitation. Each time a change is made additional fees apply.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept all major credit cards, checks or cash. Final payment is required prior to invitations being mailed.
What type of gift is appropriate for the Bar/Bat Mitzvah child?
If your child is attending their friends affair, generally a check in the amount of $36 (double Chai) is a nice gift (or a multiple of Chai - $18), depending on how close the friendship. Some families offer checks, tributes, donations, or purchase presents, again depending on whether it is a relative or friend, closeness of the two families, or how many people are attending from your family. Religious items, such as menorahs are also nice gifts.
When do I send the invitations out?
Invitations usually go out out six to eight weeks before the event. This gives guests plenty of time to make travel arrangements or move things around in their schedule to allow for their attendance. If the event is a destination event, or if you have out-of-the-country guests, invitations may be mailed prior to the 6-8 week timeline.
When should we order our invitations?
We recommend ordering the invitations 4-5 months before your event. You can save a lot of stress by ordering them well in advance.
What should we consider when choosing invitations?
Your invitations make the first impression with your guests, and they should reflect the tone of your event. They will show whether the event will be formal or informal. If you are having a themed celebration, it's nice to choose an item that will coordinate with this theme.
Where are you located?
I am conveniently located on Congress Avenue just north of Clint Moore Road. I am in the Beacon Square Professional Campus 7805 NW Beacon Square Blvd. Suite 203
Do I have to send a save the date?
No, you don’t. It is recommended when your event is scheduled over a holiday weekend or when your child may have friends that have events planned on the same date.
How many invitations should I order?
You should plan on about 10% over what you think you need.
Should I order extra envelopes?
It is always a good idea to have 20-25 extra envelopes on hand in case of mistakes.
When should I mail out my invitations?
Invitations should be mailed 6-8 weeks prior to the event. In the case of a holiday weekend you can mail 10 weeks prior.
