COMMON QUESTIONS

HOW SOON IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO ORDER INVITATIONS?

We recommend ordering your Wedding invitations no later than 4 months before your Wedding Date. For local weddings we recommend mailing your Wedding invitations no later than 6-8 weeks before your Wedding Date. For destination weddings we recommend sending 3 to 4 months before your Wedding Date.

 

Lately, the mail has been slow, so you may want to consider an extra few weeks in case any get returned. If you are sending anything internationally you definitely want to start mailing earlier.

Our process can take up to 3-4 weeks, so ordering should take that into consideration. We can rush orders if needed.

WHEN SHOULD I ORDER DAY-OF STATIONERY?

You can order Day-of stationery as early as you want. We suggest ordering no-later than 6 weeks before your wedding to ensure safe delivery with some margin.

CAN YOU PUT STAMPS ON MY ENVELOPES?

Yes, only if they are purchased by you and mailed to us. At this time we do not include stamps due to the ever changing price of postal stamps. Please reach out to discuss this further.

 

If you are looking for vintage stamps to elevate your stationery even further we recommend Little Postage House.

WHAT IF YOUR DESIGN TIMELINE TAKES LONGER THAN 3-4 WEEKS?

We strive our best to have everything wrapped up from start to finish in 4 weeks. That being said, it is your job as the client to promptly reply to emailed proofs. The longer you delay the editing and approval process the longer it will take to receive your order. 

If you are on a tight deadline, please email us to see if we can make it work. We have rush printing available. 

WHY SHOULD I INVEST IN INVITATIONS?

We are a small business and strive to work hard to produce beautiful quality work for our brides and their families. We work one-on-one with you and make sure everything is perfect before printing. Your invitation is the first thing your guests see before ever stepping into your wedding venue. It sets the tone for your wedding weekend and can be carried through to your wedding day. Your guests will put your invitation on their fridge and look at it every day. Besides photography, its one wedding investment that lasts for years and the one your guests are most likely going to keep. 

HOW MANY INVITATION SUITES SHOULD
I PLAN TO ORDER?

The most accurate way to decide on that number is to make your guest list and count the households. You will not need the same number of suites as your guest list because you will have couples and families at the same address. For example, if you are inviting 200 guests, you will not need 200 invitation suites, you may need only half (100). We do recommend ordering at least 10 extra for last minute guest additions or an invitation gets lost in the mail. So if you have 200 guests, we would suggest ordering 110 invitations.

DO YOU HAVE PAYMENT PLAN OPTIONS?
For our higher-priced items like a custom wedding suite, we offer a two payment option. We ask for 50% down and 50% at final shipping. The final payment may change due to additional items added. For Save the Dates and other small orders we ask for one payment.

DO I SEE FINAL DESIGN BEFORE PRINT?
Yes. We will send you a proof to approve before sending anything to print. That being said, please carefully review each page of the proof to catch any spelling errors or items you want to change. What you see on the final proof is what you will receive in the mail. Once your approval has been made you are responsible for errors beyond that point. Please be courteous and try to catch all changes quickly as we have other clients who we are working with as well.

HOW LONG AFTER APPROVAL WILL I RECEIVE MY INVITATIONS?
This depends on what type of invitations you are ordering. If you are ordering Gold Foil or Letterpress invitations that can take up to 3 weeks for us to receive back from the print shop. If you are ordering colored envelopes it can take up to 2 weeks for us to receive back from the print shop. If you are only ordering digital items, printing time is usually 1 week. Again, everything varies on the complexity, the quantity, and if the print shop has everything in stock.

CAN YOU MAIL MY INVITATIONS FOR ME?
No. We do not take on the responsibility of your invitations arriving to your guests. We have a timeline to promptly get you your wedding paper items in plenty of time so you can personally put them in the mail. This ensures that everything is accounted for.

DO YOU HAVE LOCAL DELIVERY?
Yes. If you live in the Greater Nashville area we can set up a time to meet you with your invitations so that you can avoid a shipping cost.
