Frequently asked Questions - Wedding Stationery
 
When should I order my wedding stationery?
 
We recommend you order your wedding invitations at least three months before the wedding date, preferably six.
 
How many wedding invitations should I order?
 
We recommend that you order a few spare invitations to allow for mistakes, to invite replacement guests if anyone cannot attend your wedding and for mishaps when writing. If you need to order more wedding invitations later, they will be charged as a new order, with a minimum quantity of 20.
 
What wording should I choose for my wedding invitations?
 
We offer a selection of verses to suit different wedding styles. You may choose one of these standard verses or write one of your own. Please bear in mind that some of these standard verses have space for you to write your guests' names and others do not. Make sure that you choose an appropriate verse if you wish to write your guests' names on your wedding invitations.
 
Can I have foreign text on my wedding invitations?
 
We can print your wedding stationery in any language other than English for a small charge. Please provide the wording as a word document.
 
Can I include additional information with my wedding invitations?
 
Often the bride and groom will wish to add extra information such as directions to the church and reception, details of hotels, gift list, etc. We can print this information for you on separate note cards, in a variety of colours to complement your wedding invitations.
 
When do I send out my wedding invitations?
 
Ideally, you should send your wedding invitations out eight weeks before the wedding to allow guests to reply.
 
When should the RSVP date be?
 
At least 4 weeks before the wedding date - you cannot finalise the catering or seating arrangements without knowing how many guests have accepted your invitation.
 
What are printed envelopes?
 
Your wedding invitations, reply cards and thank you cards will come with envelopes as standard. Reply card envelopes will be pre-printed with your name and address. For an additional charge, you may also choose to have your name and address printed on the flaps of other envelopes so that undelivered items will be returned to you.
 
Who sends out the wedding invitations?
 
Traditionally, the hosts of the wedding day do this, but often the bride or close family will do this.
 
What details do I need on my Order of Service?
 
Entrance music, hymns, prayers, marriage, benediction. Always check the format and hymns with your clergy before placing your order.
 
Allow one wedding invitation per couple or single person
 
Always order a few extra wedding invitations in case of errors and additional guests.
 
If your wedding is planned for Christmas
 
You will need to allow longer postage time.
 
Different nationalities have different wedding etiquette
 
Be careful to find out about different customs so that you don't offend anyone.
 
Co-ordinate the whole of your wedding day
 
Use ribbons and design motifs to help co-ordinate the whole of your wedding day.
 
Thank your wedding guests
 
Remember to thank your guests for their presence and gifts. We provide a large range of printed or blank thank you notes to co-ordinate with our wedding stationery. We also have a range of gifts and favours, many of which may be personalised, which are ideal for bridesmaids, best men, mums and dads, etc.
