I love designing and creating luxury wedding stationery. There are hundreds of designs out there to choose from, from good to not so good and OMG I have to have those. OMG is what I aim for. What you see and what you want are not always the same. That's why finding a professional wedding stationer that can turn your dreams into reality is essential. You've heard it many times before but it's true, your wedding invitation will give your family and friends their first glimpse into your special day and what to expect.
I'm often asked - when do we send out our wedding invitations? There is no hard and fast rule but we recommend about 12-16 weeks before your wedding date. Sooner if you haven't sent out save the date cards. If you have a lot of family and friends that will need to book travel and accommodation and arrange time off work sending your invitation out sooner rather than later will be greatly appreciated. Believe me nobody will forget about your wedding because you sent your invitations out to early. While it can be fun to visualise your creative side with card colours, damask images, beautiful satin ribbon and pearl or crystal embellishments, you don't want to get over creative with communicating the information. The key is to remember to legibly communicate with an easy to read font style the "who" "what" "where" and "when". It is really important to carefully check the text is correct and as you would like to see it printed before you approve it. Once you approve there is no going back without an additional charge. We recommend you ask someone to double check it for you. We advise reading it from start to finish and then finish to start.
Your invitations are ready to be sent. It is important to check your guests postal addresses are correct. We live in a world of emailing and texting and often forget to update our address books. No bride want's their university friends to be patiently waiting for their invites that have been delivered to an old address. Believe me this happens.
