HOW MUCH DOES AN INVITATION SUITE COST?
Due to the endless possibilities available, all pricing is custom quoted based on what you need and want. There are a number of factors to include such as quantity, material choices and print method. For details about pricing or to receive a quote, please contact me today.
WHEN SHOULD I ORDER MY INVITATIONS?
Wedding Invitations should be ordered 4-6 months before your wedding. You should plan on mailing your invitations 6-8 weeks in advance, earlier if you have not sent Save the Dates, are having a destination wedding, or if your wedding is during a busy season. Request a reply date 3-4 weeks prior to your wedding to allow additional time to create place cards or a seating chart. The custom design process takes a minimum of 4 weeks and avant-garde design needs 2-3 weeks for printing and then mailing you the final product. Keep in mind, the more time you allot for invitations the more time we have to design and assemble the most perfect invitation suite for you!
Save the Dates: Send 5-6 months in advance. Order 4-6 weeks before you want to mail. For destination weddings or weddings during a busy season they should be sent 8-10 months in advance. This allows your guests to make their travel arrangements.
Wedding Day Paper: Programs, Menus, Escort Cards, Table Numbers, Favor Tags, and More...
Order these items about 4-5 weeks before your wedding, or as soon as possible once you have all your information finalized. Some pieces may take longer than others depending on amounts of information, quantities and customization.
*Etiquette Tip: Thank you cards should be sent within 6 weeks following your wedding day.
The timelines listed above are approximations only. Orders can take more or less time depending on the season and the amount of orders coming in. Please call or email if you need a rush order.
When it comes to ordering, we recommend ordering extras to accommodate last minute guest additions, incorrect addressing and keepsakes. Ordering an additional small quantity is much less expensive than re-ordering later. Also remember, your quantity should reflect the amount of families and couples attending your event, not the number of actual people attending. Keep in mind that calligraphers (and you) will need additional envelopes (approximately 10%) for possible mistakes when addressing invitations.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY ORDER?
If you decide to cancel your order before final proof approval, you forfeit your 50% initial deposit. If you cancel your order after your final proof is approved, we retain the right to keep the full amount paid. If any errors are discovered after final approval and we have gone to print, it will be necessary to charge you for a reprint (if requested).
