A. Our stationery can be printed on a choice of luxurious cardstocks including beautiful textured gesso and shimmering pearlescent boards. All cardstock is FSC approved which means that for every tree that is used, another is planted to help preserve our environment.
Q. Is there a minimum quantity I have to order?
A. Yes, all minimum quantities are shown clearly on our price list and website.
Q. When should I send out my invitations?
A. This is a question that we are always asked! Traditionally invitations were sent out 8 weeks before the wedding – nowadays this isn’t so. Your day invitations should be sent out about 6 months before the wedding but remember to allow more time if you are getting married on a week day or during the holiday period. Don’t forget to give your guests an RSVP date for their replies and once you have them all back you can then send out invitations to your evening guests. This way if you have had replies back from guests that are unable to attend during the day, you will then have chance to ‘upgrade’ some guests from the evening without them ever knowing that they were on the reserve list!
Q. What if I haven’t ordered enough invitations?
A. You can order more invitations at a later date but you will have to order the minimum quantity shown. To avoid this, you should order a few extra invites just in case.
Q. Can I change the colours on my invitations?
A. Yes, that’s not a problem on the majority of our invitations. Drop us an email and we will send out our colour swatch to help you make your choice.
Q. What about changing the fonts?
A. We create our stationery using a suitable typeface for that particular design. However we can change the original fonts for you if you have a preference for an alternative.
Q. What about the wording?
A. We use ‘generic’ wording eg. ‘Sarah and Richard are delighted to invite you to join them in celebrating their marriage…etc’ so that you do not have to write on the invitations. You simply address the envelope eg. ‘Tom, Rachel, Sophie, Ruby and Edward’. However if you would prefer to write your guests’ names, we can leave a space for you to do so.
Q. Can you personalise my invitations with my guests’ names?
A. Yes! We can add your guests’ names to the invitations for an additional charge. Please see our price list for details.
Q. I have a particular idea in mind. Can you create this for me?
A. We are happy to create a bespoke design for you if you so wish. There is an additional charge for this service. Please email us with your requirements for a specific quotation.
Q. Does my stationery come with envelopes?
A. Yes – envelopes are supplied with your invitations.
Q. I don’t have a Wedding Gift List as I would prefer to receive money. How can I ask my guests in a way that won’t offend?
A. Many couples nowadays already have a home and furnishings and so money is always a popular choice. We have a selection of poems that will enable you to request money or vouchers without feeling too cheeky!
Q. Can the invitations be from myself and my partner?
A. Yes of course. Traditionally it was the bride’s parents that sent out the invitations but now it is generally more likely to be from the couple themselves. There are many ways to word your invitations including for example ‘ Sarah and Richard along with their parents are delighted to invite you to join them in celebrating their marriage…’ etc. We have various options to help you choose the wording that is right for you.
