Wedding Stationery Timelines

Plan out your Wedding Stationery Timeline with ease with these simple guidelines!

Save the Date Cards

Traditionally, save the date cards are sent out six to eight months before the wedding. For destination weddings, we recommend sending them out up to a year before the wedding.

  • WHEN TO ORDER:

Our turnaround time for flat save the dates is around 10-15 business days from design proof through shipping. For letterpress and foil save the dates, our turnaround time is 15-20 business days. If you are planning on having us address your envelopes, please have your excel spreadsheet ready to go. We suggest collecting addresses from your guests as soon as possible, as sometimes this process can take longer than you'd expect! We also offer rush shipping services- please let us know asap if this is a service you will likely need.

Wedding Invitations

Traditionally, wedding invitations are mailed out approximately two months before the wedding. For destination weddings, we recommend sending them out around three months before the wedding, so your guests can make appropriate travel accommodations.

  • WHEN TO ORDER

Our turnaround time for flat invitations is around 10-15 business days from design proof through shipping. For letterpress and foil invitations, our turnaround time is 15-20 business days.

DAY OF WEDDING ITEMS

You won't need items like programs, menus, table numbers and place cards until the day of your wedding. However, we recommend having them delivered at least a week before your wedding, in the event that any mistakes happen. 

  • WHEN TO ORDER

Some of this information will be dependent on receiving your RSVP cards. Your RSVP date will typically be somewhere around a month out from the ceremony. We recommend ordering these items as soon as you have your final guest list nailed down.

With all wedding stationery, it's important to be very organized and thorough when submitting your information. This will save you from unecessary delays in production, as well as additional costs incurred my multiple rounds of proofing.
