When should I think about ordering my stationery?

We know how stressful planning a wedding can be, so we’d recommend ordering your stationery as early as you can. Certain times of year are busier for wedding stationers and if you’re looking for stationery for a summer wedding, we’d recommend placing your order as early as possible! For international orders we’d recommend adding a couple of weeks onto the below timescales where possible for delivery.

Each couple is unique and you may want to send out your invitations to a completely different time scale, but we've outlined the general etiquette of when to send out your save the dates and invitations.

  • Save the Dates

    ORDER: Approximately 4-6 weeks before you’d like to send them out.

    SEND: Usually sent to guests around 10-12 months before the wedding date, giving guests plenty of time to book off and save your date!

  • Invitations

    ORDER: Approx. 6-8 weeks before you’d like to send them out, making sure to give yourself plenty of time to receive RSVPs and collect any missing responses!

    SEND: Generally sent 6-8 months prior to your wedding date, with approximately 2 months for guests to RSVP. Your RSVP date may differ based on your supplier needs, so please use these as a rough guide only.

  • On the Day

    ORDER: Ideally 2 months before your wedding, but no later than 1 month prior to the day.

    We appreciate you may not have finalised guest RSVPs by this point and would recommend ordering a few extra blanks so you can add or change items in an emergency.

  • Favours

    ORDER: Approximately 6-8 weeks before the wedding, our favours are personalised for each couple and are carefully assembled by our small and dedicated team to give your guests an extra special eco-friendly gift they can cherish for years.

  • Thank You Cards

    ORDER: Usually around 3-4 weeks before you’d like to send them out.

    SEND: These are usually sent within 3 months after your big day so the celebrations are still fresh in your guests’ minds.
