Gosh its been a bit of a whirlwind week! Getting back into the swing of things after my amazing Christmas and New Year in Morocco has been tricky but luckily I’ve had lots and lots of fantastic orders and enquiries to keep me very busy! I’ve also been very excitedly starting to think about planning my own wedding as my amazing other half Ant proposed when we were in the Sahara desert on boxing day! I am so very excited to get married and plan my own wedding … I’m starting to already think though that I may know a little too many fellow wedding suppliers and choices and choosing everything is going to be difficult! Plus I’m the sort of person that changes my mind on a fairly frequent basis but luckily Ant will probably keep me grounded in this respect. I of course intend to document some of my planning and choices here on the blog so hopefully any fellow couples who recently got engaged can follow my journey and it will help you all as well. We are off to start looking at wedding venues this weekend which is incredibly exciting … we want to get married in 2017 and are pretty flexible on dates so I’m hoping we’ll come back with a few options to choose from. I’ve already typed up and printed out lists of questions to ask each venue which I will share soon and I’ll keep you updated!
Back to today and I wanted to help those of you who may be thinking of ordering your wedding stationery and invitations soon.
Whenever I send out samples to couples I include a list of F.A.Q. to help them when they order and I thought I would share a few of these tips and answers on the blog to help you when ordering your wedding stationery and invitations. You can order from my range of wedding invitations directly from my website at https://knotsandkisses.co.uk
When should I order my wedding stationery?
I would generally advise sending your Save the Date cards out 9 months to a Year prior to your wedding so think about ordering these approximately 2-3 weeks before then. Invitations should be sent out 2-3 months prior to your wedding (possibly less if you have already sent out Save the Date Cards) although you can send them out before this especially if you have guests who may need to book flights or time off work. I would therefore advise ordering your invitations from the website at least a month prior to the date you wish to send your invitations out if at all possible. Definitely allow more time if your are ordering a bespoke service. If you aren’t ready with your wording and guest list yet I would still definitely advise contacting me to book as soon as possible so I can confirm your order.
Can I make changes to one of your standard designs?
Absolutely. If you would like to make a colour change or a small printed design change to one of the designs on the website then you can go to the bespoke page http://knotsandkisses-co-uk.stackstaging.com/beta/bespoke-stationery-service/ and add the £25 package to your basket. Then proceed with ordering the standard stationery range as normal. Once I’ve received your order you will be contacted to discuss the changes you wish to make. Or you can order one of the full bespoke packages if you would like something designing for you from scratch!
Can you pre-print my guest’s names on my wedding invitations?
Yes I offer pre-printed guest names at no extra cost. Once you have ordered I will email you asking for you to send me an excel spreadsheet or word document with your guests names on. It is best to have this ready if at all possible when ordering as any delay in sending this to me will delay the dispatch time for your invitations. Please note that you will not receive a individual proof with every guest’s name on so please make sure you are happy with the spelling of all names before sending.
How long will it take for my invitations to arrive?
Personalised wedding stationery orders are dispatched within 2-3 weeks after I receive confirmation that you wish to go ahead with your proofs. For orders of my ranges which are embellished with lace please allow 3-4 weeks. Delivery will then take 2-5 days after this by our courier. Please be aware that any delay in signing off of proofs or receiving guest names and addresses may delay your order. Bespoke orders will take longer. Please allow 6-8 weeks for a full bespoke design process if possible.
Can you design something bespoke for me?
Yes! I would love to work with you on creating something just for your wedding. Take a look at our bespoke packages on the bespoke page of the website. There are three packages to choose from. You can order a bespoke design package directly from the website and then I will be in touch to arrange a consultation to discuss your requirements further.
Can I change my mind once I’ve agreed to a proof?
I’m afraid not. Once proofs have been agreed to you have given us permission to go ahead with printing and any further changes will mean reprinting and therefore incur further costs.
Can I order if I am outside of the UK?
Absolutely. We take orders internationally. Your postage will be increased accordingly when you order. Dispatch and delivery times will obviously be greater for orders outside the UK. Orders will be dispatched within 2-4 weeks depending on the style of your stationery as normal but then please allow 7-10 working days for delivery on top of this for orders withing the european union and 10-14 working days for all other countries. We can also do your invitations in most languages if you require. Although please be aware that not all fonts are available in all languages so probably best to drop us an email at email@example.com first to check.
I hope this helps with any questions you might have about ordering your wedding stationery from my website but please don’t hesitate to drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions.
