Eternity Designs - your wedding stationery guide


When should I order my wedding stationery?

It is best to order your invitations approximately 6 months prior to your wedding. This takes into account all the different activities which are required once you obtain the completed invitations, which include: the length of time it takes to produce your cards, the time required for you to complete the invites and address the envelopes and send the invites out and receive your RSVPs, plus send a second batch to fill any spaces. This also allows for time to complete and send evening invitations.

It is best to order your other wedding day stationery 3 months prior to the wedding, in order to allow time to complete the design and include production time.

When should I send out the wedding invitations?

It is best to send out invitations, 12 to 6 weeks prior to the wedding. You must allow time for guests to respond, so you will have final numbers to pass on to the caterers etc. This also allows for any spaces to be filled, by giving you time to invite further guests.

You must also ensure your potential guests know enough time in advance so they are not double booked for the day. This could be prevented by sending out a small card to your guests, about 6 months prior to the wedding, just letting them know the date you will be getting married so they don’t book a holiday for the same day.

What should I write in the invitation?

This is a tricky question, this very much depends if you wish to write the invitation the traditional way or use a more modern style. The following are simple examples of each.

Traditional

Mr and Mrs Henry Davies
request the pleasure of your company
at the marriage of their daughter
Jema Davies to
Mr Nicholas Hewitt
at Ratcliffe Parish Church
on Saturday, 1st April 2003 at 3.00 pm
and afterwards at Elvaston Castle

Modern

Miss Jema Davies and Mr Nicholas Hewitt
request the pleasure of your company
at their marriage
at Ratcliffe Parish Church
on Saturday, 1st April 2003 at 3.00pm
and afterwards at Elvaston Castle

However in this modern world things can be a little more complex.

Eternity designs give you the freedom to have any writing you like, but will consider your situation and write something which you will find suitable, and enchanting.

You could also provide other useful information on the invitation, here are a few suggestions.

The names of those to be invited, if children or others are to be invited, put their names on the invitation.
RSVP return address, name & telephone number.
Information on dress, e.g. if morning dress or fancy dress is required, make it clear on the invitation. If no dress code is to be observed, make no mention of it.

RSVP cards

What is the best way of getting my guests to respond?

An RSVP address included on the invitation is a good way to encourage guests to respond, however the easier it is for your guests to respond the more likely they will. You could make it easier for them by including an RSVP card. A small card, on which they indicate if they can or can not come.

You could even have it stamped and addressed, so they have no excuse!

RSVP cards also allow you to obtain specific information about your guests requirements for the day, for example no.of guests, number of vegetarian guests ….. etc.

Other information...

Sometimes guests will require further information, and in order to prevent them ringing you up enquiring as to directions, local hotels, B&B’s etc during your busiest final weeks, why not include this information with the invitation. Or send out a small direction pack to those who need it at a later date.

Eternity Designs feel it is important that all brides-to-be have as much information at their finger tips as possible and in order to aid you Eternity Designs would be happy to help at this busy time. If you have any questions concerning wedding stationery Nicola Jane will be more than happy to answer them.
