Frequently Asked Questions

Below are the answers to some of the questions we get asked the most.

If you're struggling to find the answer to your questions, please get in touch and we'll be happy to help.

When should we send a Save the Date?

These should be sent around 12-18 months before your big day. A Save the Date card isn't always needed, but they're a good way of letting people know about your wedding. It also gives people enough time to book holidays from work etc. We recommend keeping your Save the Date super simple! That way, if you change your mind on a theme in between sending these and your Invitations it doesn't matter too much! 

When should we send our Wedding Invitations?

We recommend sending your Invitations at least four to six months in advance. If you haven't sent a Save the Date, then send your Invites at least twelve months in advance. This gives guests enough time to book accommodation and make travel arrangements. Make sure your rsvp date is at least two months before your big day to give you enough time to chase anyone who hasn't replied! 

When should we order On the Day Stationery?

On the Day Stationery should be ordered at least six weeks before the big day. On the Day Stationery includes: Any Signage, an Order of Service, Table Plan, Place Name Cards, Table Names/Numbers, Menu Cards, Favour Tags, Instagram Cards... basically any stationery that guests will see on the day! 

 

How long will it take for our Invites to arrive?

If you are ordering from one of our House Collections, then it normally takes around three weeks, from the initial proof to delivery. If you're using our bespoke design service then it will take a little longer. For bespoke stationery, we estimate six to eight weeks from the initial concepts and design stage through to delivery. 

We kinda know what we'd like our Save the Dates/Invitations to look like,

can you take bespoke orders?

Yes! A lot of the stationery we create is bespoke, however please bear in mind there is an extra charge for this. When creating bespoke stationery, we normally ask you to send over any imagery or mood boards you may have (Pinterest is great for this!) and we'll start and create ideas based on this.

Can I order samples?

Yes! Sample packs are available to order here. Please note there is a small charge for these, and we cannot send personalised samples. The cost of your sample pack is redeemable against the total cost of your Stationery. 

How much will our Stationery cost?

A full price list is available to view here, however prices will vary depending on quantity and cardstock. For a more accurate cost please get in touch with your exact needs and we can send you a detailed quote. 

How many Save the Dates/Invitations do I need to order?

We would suggest working out how many guests you will have, and ordering half as many Save the Dates/Invitations. Normally, you can send one per individual, couple or family. To try and help, we've put together a downloadable Guest List tool that may help you work this out!
