I understand how important your wedding is and every order received is treated with the upmost respect and produced in the same quality as if it was my own.
When to send Save the Dates
Sending save the dates are a perfect way of ensuring your guests are available on your special day, especially if you have chosen a bank holiday. Once you have set the date and booked the venue my personal opinion is to send Save the Dates around 4-6 months before your day, any later people may have made plans and much sooner people tend to overlook them. You may want to send your save the dates a bit sooner if you are getting married on a bank holiday or abroad as it will give people a little more time.
Information on Save the Dates
On the save the dates you will want to detail your names and the date which you have chosen, this information is essential. You may wish to add some additional information such as ‘formal invitation to follow’ or ‘ensure your passport is valid’.
When to send Invitations
I usually advise people to send their formal invites out 6-8 weeks before their day. This allows guests plenty of time to organise travel and accommodation should they not live locally. If you are getting married abroad I would advise sending the invites out 2-3 months before your day to give guests a little more time. Both will allow enough time for people to RSVP and you to make the final guest list and organise the final details.
Information on Invitations
On the formal invitation it is essential that you include, your names, the wedding date & time, the venue (church and reception if different places), how to RSVP and the date by. You may have additional inserts for your invites these are ofter RSVP cards, menu choices, directions, local hotels. My advise is the further people are coming the more information they will require.
How to Order
I usually like to meet my clients face to face in the first instance however, this is not essential so do not worry if you are a long way away. If you are interested in what I can offer the first thing to do is to contact me, drop me an email or give me a quick call and we can pencil in your date as the very first step. First we will discuss your requirements, what products you are after the style, design, etc then I will work on a price for you. A quote would be sent to you digitally and on your acceptance the fun part begins as the ideas we originally discussed start coming to life. A proof of the artwork will be sent when I feel the design is ready, we can then make any changes required. On the final proof I ask that you take the responsibility to spell check the document(s), although I take every care in not making a mistake, after hours of looking at the same document I could have missed a tiny error. After accepting the final proof the job will be sent to print, I then make any finishing touches by hand and will contact you as soon as the item(s) are ready for delivery or collection. Design times and production times vary from job to job but we can discuss these timescales pretty early on. With all my work, prices quoted are excluding delivery.
I will be in close contact with you through every stage of the process and should you ever have any questions I am only a phone call away.
