Little Nicks Stationery of Surrey

Useful Timelines for Wedding Stationery

Save the date cards, wedding invitations and RSVP cards can be ordered as soon as you are ready after your wedding date is set. We will arrange to meet up with you and get an idea of the sort of style and colour you are looking for, we will then provide you with 3 sample cards made using your ideas. Once you have looked at them and decided if you like one in particular or bits from all of them we will meet again and do a final design.  We will ask you to proof read, check all the wording and sign the sample card.  Once this is done we will make the invitations, this can take up to 4 weeks providing we have all the names and addresses. (if you wanted these printed on) On the day items such as table plans and place cards can be ordered at any stage. However, the information to complete these must be with us at least five weeks before your wedding date to allow time for production.

Save the date cards

Save-the-dates are usually sent out 6 to 12 months before the wedding and are followed by a formal invitation. Save the date cards announce your engagement, it gives guests early notice of your wedding date and can provide them with information about hotel accommodation if this is something required. This is especially useful if you are getting married during holiday months or if you are inviting overseas guests.

Wedding Invitations and Reply Cards

Wedding invitations can be sent out 3 to 4 months before your wedding to allow guests time to reply but also to give yourselves time to adjust your guest list as the ‘regrets’ responses arrive. You may wish to ‘upgrade’ some guests and we will happy to make extra invitations for you all we ask is for as much notice as possible.

Reply cards are usually sent out with the invitations. If you include reply cards you are far more likely to get speedy replies.

Thank you cards

Thank you cards are sent after the wedding to thank your guests for their gifts and for attending. Once you have a list of gifts/senders let us know how many you need and we will again work with you on the design and get them out in 4 weeks providing all the information is provided.
