When should invitations go out?

We suggest sending invitations out 8 weeks prior to the “big day”. This is especially important if you are inviting people from out of state. 

If you are mailing invitations out of the country, we suggest sending them at least 10 weeks before the celebration. The mailing system in other countries is not as fast or reliable, so plan accordingly. 

Something not used as often in the Latino culture is save-the-date cards. Save-the-dates can be sent out 6 to 8 months before the celebration and that is more than enough time for guests to plan. 

Get inspired!

If you have yet to purchase invitations, we highly recommend using Minted.com. They have a huge selection and super cute invitations.  

They offer a selection of quinceañera invitations but we fell in love with the wedding designs. For my daughter’s quince we ordered one of their foil-pressed invitations and used the formal wording listed above. We got so many compliments!

You will definitely have your guests excited with stunning foil-pressed invitations
