Requesting Electronic Invitations

Welcome! If you've made it this far, your event is already confirmed and you're ready to start inviting guests. Before you submit your request, take a moment to browse through the content on this page to make sure you have everything you need!


Review Our Invitation Policy

  1. Allow 2-3 business days for invitation requests to be received and processed
  2. Make all requests at least 20 business days ahead of your event to allow for processing and proofing.
  3. Guests should have- at a minimum- 14 business days to view the invitation and respond and your RSVP deadline should be early enough to allow you to provide a final head count to the caterer 3 days prior to your event.
  4. Event Management will provide you- the Event Host- with access to our electronic invitation system as a temporary "co-host". This feature will allow you to view live RSVP data.
