When to Order
For your local guests: Your invitations should be sent out 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding day to give your guests enough notice of the date and time to organise travel and accommodation.
For your guests abroad: It’s best to send your invitations 10 or more weeks in advance of your day. This also applies to holiday times like Christmas, Bank Holidays, etc.
If your wedding is abroad: Attending a wedding abroad can be a big expense for your guests, so do remember to give as much time as possible to organise travel to, and accommodation at, your wedding destination. Many couples choose to send ‘save the date’ notices up to a year in advance, following with an official invitation closer to the time.
With these time frames in mind: Remember that it can take up to 7 business days to get your purchased samples to you. And you also need to factor in the time you will need to make your final choice, giving yourself a comfortable margin for any queries that need to be made or decisions on colour, themes or styles.
We advise placing your order with us a minimum of 3 months before your wedding date to give you (and us!) enough time.
And remember! Writing guest names on invitations and addressing envelopes can be time consuming, so make sure you factor this in too.
And if you’re really in a hurry? Please contact us prior to making your order and we will let you know if we can accommodate a speedy delivery for you. All our invitations are produced in-house but certain products like envelopes, ribbons and embellishments may require time to order in. Either way, we will do our best to accommodate!
