TYPICALLY SENT: AFTER YOUR ENGAGEMENT
Design can be similar to your event style, but need not match your main invitations.
Save the Date!
TYPICALLY SENT: 4-6 MONTHS BEFORE THE WEDDING
Once you've selected a date and location, it's time to send out save-the-dates. If you are hosting a destination event it's important to give friends and family as much notice as possible to make travel arrangements. This piece of stationery can coordinate with your invitations, but it's not necessarily expected.
TYPICALLY SENT: 6-8 WEEKS BEFORE THE WEDDING
Wedding and party invitations can be a single, flat card or an entire suite of pieces. Most of our clients include details cards like a reception card, a direction or map card, and even a small welcome booklet. Consider how your guests will RSVP to the event - on paper or on your website. A more formal choice is to include a response card and self-addressed and stamped envelope in your wedding invitation suite.
At the Table
Place cards can designate each guest's seat at a table. These cards typically contain just a guest's first name, but if you have friends and family with the same name, a last initial is a wise addition.
If you're commissioning escort cards, you'll need to mark each table with a table number or title so that guests can match up their escort card to where they will be sitting.
From sit-down dinners where your guests choose a meal, to buffet style fare, it's always helpful to include cards that clearly denote what each dish contains for those with food allergies in mind.
For weddings with assigned seating, escort cards can include each guests name and a table assignment. Often located at the entrance to the reception space, or passed on trays during cocktail hour, escort cards can be tented or flat and are lovely when enclosed in a tiny matching envelope.
