Bridal Show season is here…it is the time for staying on track with your wedding Stationery. Our custom book markers are a great way to keep the “stationery” ball rolling- We have given our clients tips on what to do and when to do it. Where are you on the “stationery” timeline? (based on a perfect world of a 12 month engagement)
12-9 months: Congrats you are Engaged!
SAVE the DATES can be sent
Start getting that guest list together. Make sure you check with all the important people, so you don’t forget anyone on the list.
6-8 months: Lets talk INVITES…Custom Invites can take a bit longer, so we want to begin the dreaming, creating, and designing stage with you. We love to make a great FIRST IMPRESSION with our invitations!
What about the envelopes? Do you have nice handwriting?…Calligrapher? Digital addressing? Just NO WHITE LABELS please-…sorry just NO
Other items to think about and ponder….Will you be my Bridesmaids cards, Thank You Notes, Rehearsal Invites, Day After Brunch, Custom Guest Bag Maps
Lets get those INVITATIONS ordered…time is a-wastin’ your guest are excited when they arrive in their mailboxes.
6-8 weeks: Time to mail the invites. (10-12 for destination)
POSTAGE TIP: Don’t get too excited to run off and buy your postage…Please wait until you have a completed invitation suite and make sure you have the whole piece weighed. Hand Cancel is the best way to go with your paper investment.
It is during this time we can chat about Menus, Table Numbers, Favor Tags and any Food Signage that might be needed. FOOD TIP: Make sure to have labeled food tags for passed trays or buffet stations. Guests will not have to ask what is in everything if they have dietary restrictions.
3-4 Weeks: You got Mail! woo-hoo…it is so exciting to get mail that is not a BILL! Don’t stop now-
2-3 Weeks: We are back in your life looking for the names to set up your ESCORT CARDS and Seating CHARTS
Phew, this has been a long and meaningful relationship that we have built over our timeline…we love to see the pictures so please share when you have a moment!
Best of Luck on a long and happy marriage…remember us when you hear a friend has gotten engaged, we LOVE referrals!
