Every week, Simcha Invitations will be presenting Top Tips for Simcha’s!

 

TIP 3 – February 2018

 

How do I know how many Invitations to order?

The easy way is to agree on the number of guests that you want to come to the party.

 

For example, take 200 Guests and then ask yourself (and the grooms family if it is a Wedding), how many of the guests will be single? If it is a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, it is usually the school friends and a handful of older guests. Typically this can be 40 Friends and 5 or 6 Adults. If it is a Wedding, it is the Bride and Grooms single friends and again a handful of older guests.

 

The mathematics is easy. 200 Guests less 56 singles = 144 as these are married, divide by 2 and you have 72 Invitations. Add on the Invitations for singles = 56 and you need a minimum of 128 Invitations. BUT BUT BUT always allow about 10% for spares, so on this occasion, we would say at least 140 Invitations in total should be sufficient.

 

Use the formula below to calculate your requirements

A. No of Guests = 
B. Less number of singles =
C. Sub Total =
D. Figure C divided by 2 =
E. No of Invites is B+D together =
F. Spares (say 10%) =

 

Total Number of Invites required

G. is E + F =

 

There are just two “special circumstances” where additional Invitations should be allowed.

 

1. Firstly when the Simcha is overseas and it is unlikely all the guests will attend. There is always scope to ask some more friends.
2. Secondly where you have a large part of your family living abroad or a considerable distance away, it is most unlikely they will all attend. Again scope to ask more friends to attend.

 

Finally do remember that it is more expensive to reprint a small quantity of Invitations than discard a few extra ones ordered with the main print run.

Every week, Simcha Invitations will be presenting Top Tips for Simcha’s!

 

TIP 2 –January 2018

 

Should we send a “Save the Date” card?

 

In our experience, there are two occasions when a Save the Date card is suitable for your Simcha.

 

1) An overseas function

2) A function on a popular date

 

Popular destinations for an overseas Simcha are of course Israel and Spain

 

Every year, we do a number of Wedding Invitations for venues all over Israel and Barmitzvah Invitations that are almost always in Jerusalem. The most popular Wedding destination in Europe is usually Marbella although we have also done Wedding Invitations for Majorca and Florence.

 

An overseas Wedding requires planning, booking flights, hotels and obviously minimising costs for the Guests. The more time, one has to book, the less expensive the prices.

 

GOLDEN RULE – send a “Save the Date” card!

 

When is a popular date?

 

Using January as our start line, we always find the three weeks prior to Pesach to be very busy. Lag B’Omer is another landmark and then the period immediately after the Omer.  In general, people avoid the 3 weeks (Tammuz 18 – 29 and of course in the 9 days (Av 1 – 9), Simchas are forbidden.

 

This means the dates before and after are always very popular as are the weekends before Rosh Hashanah and Sukkot. The two weekends after Sukkot are also very popular.

 

In secular terms, dates for Half term and end of term are again popular. If you have a Simcha in August or September, everyone sends out there invitations before the Schools break for Summer Holidays. Finally, the busiest weekend of the whole year is always August Bank Holiday because everyone can travel to a Simcha and have an extra day.

 

We at Simcha Invitations recommend always sending a “Save the Date”!
