How long does the process take?

For pre-designed invitations you can expect to receive your items within 6 weeks of ordering. To ensure your order runs to time or quicker, make sure to follow the key dates sent to you. Bespoke takes slightly longer, get in touch and we can give you an idea based on your needs.

When should we send out our stationery?

Save the Dates

We would recommend sending save the dates out at least 12 months in advance. For weddings abroad or if you have a lot of international guests you should consider sending up to 18 months in advance.

 

Wedding Invitations 

This can vary on location and if you have already sent save the dates. If you are sending invitations only 6-9 months is a good time frame. If your guests are already aware of the date and location, between 3-6 months before the wedding is ideal.

 

It’s a good idea to check with local hotels how far in advance rooms are usually booked up around the time of your wedding. Check if there are going to be any large events on in the area of the wedding and if so, make sure you allow your guests plenty of time to arrange accommodation.

How many should I order?

Don’t forget that you don’t need an invitation for every guest - split your guestlist into households which will give you an idea of the minimum amount needed.

Make sure to add a few for keepsakes to look back on and a few spare (15-20%), for last minute guestlist changes or lost invitations. It’s always better to have to many than too little.

What is a design proof?

This is a digital mock up of your stationery, it’s here you will get the first look of your personalised design. We make these as true to print as possible however monitors & printers will vary, therefore colours & scales may differ. It’s important for you to highlight any amendments you would like to make at this stage – after the final proof is approved there can be no further amendments, as the printing process will start.
