Wedding Stationery FAQS
Now that you have started planning for your big day, I'm sure that you have many questions, here are some of the most frequently ask regarding Invitations and Stationery
When do I need to send out my save the date cards?
Generally, we suggest sending your save the date cards as soon as you have confirmed the date or 12 - 18 months before the date of your wedding, especially if you have chosen a busy time of the year, such as summer when people are busy planning holidays.
When should I send out my invitations?
This usually depends whether you have already sent save the date cards to notify guests of your date, if you haven't it may be wise to send your invitations 6 - 9 months before you date, if you guests are already aware of the date of your wedding, we would suggest 4-6 months, this will allow you enough time for replies, however we always suggest also checking with your venue when they will require final numbers, this is usually between 4 - 8 weeks prior to your date.
How many Invitations should I order?
You will only need one invitation per family or couple, however we suggest you order one or two extra's should you wish to replace any guests that are unable to attend.
