Organisation for the big day usually pivots around the church, the reception and of course that dream dress, in fact few thoughts are spared for the choosing of the wedding stationery at all. That is, until now…

Choosing that Agency
There are plenty to choose from. But before you delve in, have a good idea of what you are after in terms of design, tone and general presentation.

Details, Details, Details…
Tradition is tradition, the following details must be included:
The names of the parents hosting the wedding
The bride and groom

Better safe…
Printing times vary, which is why we advise ordering 3-4 months before the actual wedding day and ordering an extra 20 cards with your specified order, just in case!
Invitations should be sent out 6 weeks before the wedding.
