What are your top tips for wedding stationery?
It’s a good idea to know some information about your wedding before you choose the right design for you. Details like the theme, number of guests, level of formality, colour palette, and the venue can influence your choice, and knowing some of these things in advance can help make sure you choose something that fits with your overall vision for the day. Of course, you should also consider your budget.
Know what information you need to communicate to guests, and plan how you will communicate it – that is, what cards you might need in your stationery suite. The most common collection includes save the dates, wedding invitations, RSVP cards, and thank you cards, but could also include extra information cards with information about your gift registry, directions to the event, and accommodation details. You should also think about on the day stationery, like orders of service, place cards, menus, and signage. Plan out your stationery set based on your needs and your budget.
How long does ordering wedding stationery usually take?
Once you purchase, the amount of time for delivery will vary depending where you order your stationery from. At Paperlust, you can have your wedding stationery in as little as a few days with expedited shipping on digital and white ink. More complex print types take longer, but even letterpress invitations (which need the longest time period) should be at your door in about a fortnight. This may vary slightly at peak periods or when suppliers shut down over Christmas, so it’s always best not to leave your order to the last minute.
If you are concerned about the time period for your order, our team can help with specific information based on your preferred design, volume and print types.
