You’re invited

There’s nothing more exciting than a little paper prettyness landing on your doorstep and giving your guests their first glimpse into your big day.


So you’ve set the date, booked your venue and have decided on your day’s style, it’s now time to announce it to your loved ones.

Save the dates

Give your guests the heads up with a ‘Save the Date’ card. Usually sent out around 12 months ahead, they are especially useful when getting married abroad or during busy times like school holidays, bank holidays and Christmas. Normally reserved for all day guests, they’re not a necessity, but will increase your guests’ chance of attendance.

Your Style

Whether you’re opting for a traditional affair, a relaxed event or something completely wacky, your invitation design and wording should hint towards the formality of your wedding, including your colour and theme.

Sending your Invitations

Once you’ve confirmed the finer details, it’s time to send your main invites. They should include all the details your guests needs to know when, where and rsvp details. Additional information you may wish to include is gift details, recommended accommodation, dress code (if there is one), children (if opting for an adult only day).

The general rule is to send them a few months ahead of the big day. Some couples choose to send them 6 months or more ahead, especially when organising a large event or around busy times, to ensure everything is confirmed in advance and saving last minute stresses.
