If your wedding is on a long weekend, or a Friday, or at least half of your guests are travelling more than an hour to attend your wedding, send a save the date 8 to 12 months before your wedding to book time off work, hire a babysitter, or book hotel rooms/airfare, etc.
First, you’ll schedule a no-obligation design consultation. During our consultation we’ll discuss what vision is for your invitations. From there, we’ll go through paper choices, discuss font choices, and we can discuss the wording of your invitation suite. A 50% deposit is required to start the design process. All proofs are sent digitally by email for you to review and request any changes you’d like to see. Once we’ve finalized your design, the balance is due, and final production begins. From start to finish the process takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
6 to 8 months before your wedding day. Designs take 4 to 6 weeks to design, print and assemble. During our consultation we’ll discuss the design, wording, and detailed specifics, so it’s important to have everything in order before we meet.
First off you should determine is your RSVP date. To figure that out, you should determine when your venue requires a final headcount and add at least 2 weeks to that to give you a chance to chase the stragglers - there are always going to be stragglers. Once you have your RSVP date determined add 6-8 weeks to than to determine your mailing date.
The best way to figure this out is to determine what information you need to share with your guests.
Do you have any out of town guests who require accommodations?
You may want to include some hotel info.
Do your guests know where the ceremony & reception locations are? Is parking tricky?
You may want to include a map with some details.

As a general rule, use the number of families, not the total number of individual guests. You should add a few for keepsakes. And an additional 5 to 10 extras for guests you may have missed, plus any that get lost in the mail! If you don’t order enough initially, you can order more in any quantity you need, however additional fees may apply.
No less than 6 weeks before your wedding, we should start the conversation about what pieces you’d like to order. Once your table assignments have been completed, 3-4 weeks before your wedding, we’ll finalize the design and get all your items produced.
