Be neurotic about postage and mailing: Make sure that your invite has the correct postage. Nothing replaces a conversation with the Post Office. Have it examined and weighed, buy proper postage __ don't save money here! Be careful about addressing: light colors and elaborate calligraphy can interfere with mailing. Also be sure to mail one to yourself before the rest go out. This will confirm that you used proper postage and give you a keepsake with a postmark from your local post_office.
Customarily, the bride's last name should be excluded if her parents are hosting the wedding. If the groom's parents are involved in the planning, include the bride's last name. Always double check that you are using correct names for your guests, even the third cousin's girlfriend of 3_months who you have never met. If you have to pick up the phone to call and confirm a spelling, do so to make your guests feel absolutely comfortable and welcomed. Registry information should be displayed on your wedding website (if applicable) or communicated through word of mouth. You should not print such information on your wedding invitations__as it would be in poor taste.
