As a guide, my clients spend an average of
on wedding invitations, wedding stationery & signage (based on their entire wedding budget).
6-8 weeks before your stationery needs to be despatched.
Turnaround time can fluctuate based on peak wedding season, length of time it takes to approve artworks & delivery of any specialist materials.
I also only take on a certain number of stationery projects per month & so booking well in advance is strongly advised.
I love them but…
Invitations set the scene for your wedding day & stop you from being pestered by guests who ‘don’t do emails’.
If you’re opting for a child free wedding & want to make the message clear…
Add a polite note to your invitations announcing that the venue isn’t suitable for children & also clearly address your invitations to the guest you only want to attend.
The design, style & colour palette you choose for your wedding invitations can give guests inspiration for their wedding attire without having to state a specific dress code.
If you do want to enforce a dress code however, I strongly advise adding a little note on your invitations with the specifics e.g. black tie/cocktail attire.
The weight of those tactile handmade papers, wax seals, clips & pins can sometimes add up…
Before you post your invitations to guests, be sure to get the Post Office to check the weight & size for you so you purchase the correct postage.
