02. Process

Let's get started

I. Consultation

After you place your inquiry, we'll be in touch to schedule a consultation call to learn more about you, your wedding, and your vision for your wedding stationery.

II. Proposal


We'll prepare a custom quote just for you based on our consultation, including any extras we think you'll love.

III. Agreement


If you decide to work with us, the next step is to sign your contract and place your retainer. After that, we'll send over a timeline so you know exactly what to expect.

IV. Design Questionnaire


Now it's time to dive deeper into your vision for your wedding stationery. After you place your retainer, you'll receive a questionnaire to fill out with even more design details and your wording.

03. Timeline

Timing is everything

10-15 Months

Begin Save the date design

We recommend starting the design process for your save the dates around a year from your wedding date (or more, depending on how far your guests will be traveling). Your save the dates are your guests' first contact with your wedding, so they'll set the tone for what's to come!

8 - 12 Months

Mail Save the dates

If most of your guests are local, plan on sending your save the dates eight to ten months from your wedding. If you're having a destination wedding or most of your guests are traveling, we recommend ten months to a year.

6 Months

Begin invitation design

There are a lot of factors that go into determining how early to start your invitation design, such as print type and calligraphy. When in doubt, plan farther out. (Hey, we made a rhyme!)

2 - 3 Months

Mail Invitations
ORDER DAY-OF ITEMS

Mailing your invitations two to three months before your wedding date will give you plenty of time to receive your RSVPs and finalize your seating chart and guests' menu choices.

Place cards and menus and signs, oh my! Although you won't be able to finalize these items until you have all of your RSVPs in hand, we'll get started on design and order the necessary materials so we're ready to go.

4 - 6 Weeks

Finalize Day-of Items

Now that you've received your RSVPs, we can finalize items like place or escort cards, seating charts, and welcome notes. This will ensure that we have enough time for production and / or calligraphy before the big day!

You already have enough to think about when it comes to your wedding, so we put together a timeline to help you stay on track with stationery.

04. Address Etiquette

Ms or Mrs? Which name comes first in a same-gender couple?

The envelope, please

Ultimately, the decision about how formal or traditional to be when addressing your envelopes is totally up to you. If you do choose to use salutations, it's a great idea to confirm your guests'  before sending out your invitations to ensure their preferences and pronouns are honored.
