Additional Fees __ For extra lines of text, you will incur an additional fee of 75 cents to ũ; addressing an invitation with two complete names, such as John Smith and Laura Lane, generally requires the purchase of an extra line. Typically, a return address on the outer envelope will also require the purchase of extra lines. Additional flourish, like a symbol or flower, will cost around 50 cents to ũሪ per envelope.
Be timely and create a sense of urgency: Technically, invitations should be mailed 6ξ weeks prior to a wedding. In these busy times 10 weeks has become the norm. However, more than that is too early and can backfire. Instead of making sure people respond promptly, this tactic actually causes most people to put the invitation on the "to_do later" list. Also be careful not to confuse your need for deadlines on the room blocks with the final head count for the caterer. You don't need an official head count until about a month before the wedding for the caterer, seating chart and rentals. It is your guests' responsibility to make travel arrangements and hotel accommodations, so try not to stress too much about that in terms of timing for your replies.
