Wedding Festivals

I went to wedding festivals yesterday. For those of you who didn’t get to go, or maybe aren’t from the Asheville area, here are some things I thought were worth sharing! 

Wedding Paper Timeline from Souther Blush at

-Save the dates should be ordered and sent 7 to 8  months before the wedding.

-Wedding Invitations should be designed 6 to 7 months before the wedding, should be mailed 6 to 8 weeks before the wedding (6 weeks if there was a Save The Date, 8 if not)

-Rehearsal Dinner invite should be sent 2 weeks after formal invites.

-Programs and paper goods should be ordered 2 to 4 months before the wedding 

-RSVP responses should be requested 3 to 4 weeks before the wedding

-Thank you cards should be sent within 4 weeks for gifts received before the wedding. Should be sent within 8 weeks for gifts received at the wedding. 


For all the Gluten Free eaters out there… bakeries that do gluten free cakes…

Also, found some businesses that really made an impression with their personality/work. 

-House of Fabrics on Merrimon Ave

-Brown’s Floral Design in Weaverville

-Brittney Clark Makeup Artist in Canton

So, stop by and tell them all HELLO!!! And tell them Rachel Archer Photography sent you!
