when should I order my save the dates?
Once you have your venue chosen and the contract is signed, you can start ordering your save the dates!
Save the Dates are typically sent 6-12 months in advance of your wedding. Aim to send your wedding save the dates out about a year in advance if you are having a destination wedding or a wedding that may take place near a holiday.
when should I order my custom wedding invitations?
A good rule of thumb is 6-8 months prior to your wedding date. This will allow enough time for us to get a handle on your vision, after which we will begin the design process.
You’ll want to leave plenty of time for revisions, reprints, and assembly. Six months might seem like a lot of time, but you’ll be grateful for it when the deadline for sending your invitations comes!
when should I mail my invitations?
Invitations to local weddings should be mailed 6-8 weeks before your wedding date. Mail them 10-12 weeks beforehand for a destination wedding!
how much do custom invitations cost?
Prices vary according to invitation style, quantity of invitations, number of enclosure cards and print method you choose. Schedule a consultation with me and we’ll discuss your budget and your needs.
when should my RSVP date be?
Your reply cards should be returned to you anywhere from 3-4 weeks before your wedding. Your venue will give you a deadline for when you need to provide them with a final headcount, but also leave yourself time to track down guests who haven’t responded.
If you’re ordering day-of stationery, don’t forget that you’ll need to have your seating arrangements settled before having place cards, seating charts, etc. designed and printed. We will need approximately 3 weeks to design, print, and deliver your stationery to you.
can you design other pieces for my wedding?
Definitely! We can create almost anything printed. Ceremony signage and programs are extremely popular. As for reception stationery, we can create seating charts, escort/place cards, table numbers, mad libs cards, menus, signature drink tent cards, signage, favor tags, etc. All of these items can be coordinated with your custom wedding invitations for a cohesive look.
All other wedding stationery should be ordered 6-8 weeks before the wedding. If you are having your stationery custom-designed, leave an additional 2-3 weeks for the design process.
I don’t see a design that fits my needs. do you offer other designs?
Yes! Everything is custom-designed for you. I always love starting a new design from scratch. Creating something special and unique for each couple is what I live for!
Not sure what you want? That’s okay! We’ll talk about your taste and figure out the perfect design for you.
Please contact us if you have any other questions about your invitations.
can you create stationery using my engagement or wedding photography?
Of course! All you need to do is provide one or more of your favorite photos. We can create custom photo save the dates, wedding invitations, and day-of stationery!
We can also use your wedding photography to create custom thank yous for you to mail to your guests. Lots of couples take wedding portraits with “thank you” signs–which we can also design for you!
do you design for any occasions besides weddings?
We design for all important life events: engagements, anniversaries, birthdays, mitzvahs, bridal showers, baby showers, birth announcements, baptisms, graduations, and holidays. Tell us about your theme and color palette, and we’ll create whatever paper goods you need!
