All text is customisable in a font of your choice. You can also alter the design and colours of your invitation.

Once I have everything I need from you, I will then create a digital artwork proof of your stationery, this will be emailed to you.
It is important at this stage that you check your proofs very carefully to ensure you are happy with everything. All text, spelling, imagery and design is to be carefully checked.

Save the Dates:
You should send out your Save the Dates about 9-12 months before your wedding day. If your wedding is abroad, you should send them out even sooner (12-18 months) to allow people time to book and save for their trip.
You can begin the design process for your Wedding Invitations up to 1 year before your wedding if you wish, but generally 4-8 months before is standard. Then place your print order 6 to 3 months before your wedding. Allow 2-7 days for printing and keep in mind you will need time to write and address them. If you have not ordered enough, get in touch asap and we will arrange to send you some more. Also, don’t forget you can buy “Love” stamps from An Post!
On the Day Stationery:
Ideally you should place your order for your On the Day Stationery such as Order of Service Booklets, Table Names, Place Names, Signage, Menus, Place Names etc about 4-6 weeks before your wedding. If you have left it later please get in touch asap.
Thank You Cards:
Wait until after your Wedding Day to order your Thank You Cards. Once you have received your professional photos and have chosen some suitable shots, send them on to us and we will send you back a proof.
