With a million things to do before your big day, worrying about your wedding invitations and stationery shouldn’t be one of them! Here’s a little FAQ that might help you on your way!
I’m thinking about sending save the dates. Are they necessary?
Yes! If your wedding is on a long weekend, or a Friday, or at least half of your guests are travelling more than an hour to attend your wedding, give them extra notice 8 to 12 months before your wedding to book time off work, hire a babysitter, or book hotel rooms/airfare, etc.
When should we sit down to discuss our wedding invitations?
6 to 8 months before your wedding day. Designs take 4 to 6 weeks to design, print and assemble. During our consultation we’ll discuss the design, wording, and detailed specifics, so it’s important to have everything in order before we meet.
I don’t know how I want my invitations to look. Can you help me?
Absolutely! This is my favourite part of the process…designing with you! My design studio is filled with inspiration including past designs, print styles (like letterpress and foil printing), paper samples, and of course, a plethora of font choices! The process is extremely easy. I ask you questions that point us in the right direction, and I walk you through each step with as much or little help as you’d like!
How many invitations do I need to order?
Take your number of addresses (not number of guests), and 3 or 4 for keepsakes, and 5 to 10 extras for guests you may have missed, plus any that get lost in the mail!
When should I order our day-of stationery items?
6 weeks before your wedding, we should start the conversation about what pieces you’d like to order. Once your table assignments have been completed, 3 weeks before your wedding, we’ll finalize the design and get all your items produced.
