Determining a budget is an essential part of creating the perfect wedding stationery.

Costs can accumulate quickly, so setting a spending limit prior to making any purchases is recommended.

Wedding Theme

Choosing your wedding invitations

These invites set the stage for the whole day so you need to be clear with the information you provide, including accurate details such as the date, time, place, and dress code. Make sure to review them thoroughly before committing to an order. We do test prints before every purchase, to be sure you are satisfied and have any unwanted surprises.

Additional Extras That Match

Design coordinating accessories, such as programs, place cards, menus, and thank-you notes, to complete your wedding theme. Decorate these items to match your wedding décor aesthetic.

When To Order?

It is usually recommended to place an order for wedding stationery several weeks prior to your special day, leaving you enough time for any unexpected situations, for example, a change of guests, etc.

We would normally be able to deliver approx. 3-4 weeks from point of purchase, potentially quicker depending on the complexity of the work and our capacity.
