Frequently Asked Questions
It’s all in the details
When it comes to weddings, your invitations are one of the first wedding planning decisions you’ll make! Read below for more details on our booking process, calligraphy addressing tips, ordering guidelines, and some helpful guidelines for wedding invitation wording. Scroll further to read some of our frequently asked question, including the most popular one, when to send out wedding invitations!
When to send out wedding invitations?
As a general rule, we recommend working backwards from your final count due date. This is the date your venue or caterer will specify as the date to send in your final guest count. From that date, count back 10-12 weeks. This allows you a couple of months to send out your invites, collect RSVP’s, and chase up last minute replies!
when to send out save the dates?
We highly recommend using save the dates for destination weddings, or if your guests need to make travel arrangements to attend your wedding. Save the dates can be sent out as as soon as you’ve booked your venue.
What to include on save the dates?
Your save the dates should include information about the couple (who), the date (when), and the city and country the wedding will take place (where). If you send someone a save the date, that indicates that they will receive an invitation to the wedding.
How much do custom invitations cost?
Custom invitations vary in design, paper selection, print methods, and quantities. Send us a note to enquire about our custom design fees and process. Our fee includes partial calligraphy, sketches of your design as a starting point, three rounds of design changes to ensure the design reflects your vision which includes digital mock ups of how your design will look when completed, plus access to our client portal.
Our work is client focussed, so we’ll guide you, providing options and solutions for your custom stationery design. We make recommendations that suit your budget and present information so that you feel informed, and understand the process and materials used in creating your custom design.
How many pieces do you need for your invitation suite?
An invitation suite can be as little or as large as your wedding needs. A two-piece invitation suite includes the invitation and the envelope. This works well if you are using a wedding website to collect replies.
If you are wanting guests to reply back using the mail, you would use a reply card and traditionally include a self-addressed stamped envelope. If you have additional information you want to share such as important times, accommodation, or transport info, you can include a details card.
