Not sure what the rules of stationery are? We are always glad to help you out! Here’s a few tips to get you started.


Save the Dates:

-should be mailed 3-6 months before

-If guests are spread out or you are having a destination wedding, the earlier the better

-Save the dates do not need to be sent to every guest you plan to invite but should ONLY be sent to those you are certain will make the final guest list



Wedding invitations:

-Should be mailed 6-8 weeks before the wedding requesting RSVPS 2-3 weeks prior to the wedding

-Feel free to be creative with your stationery but make sure you focus on the important things



Shower invitations: (baby/wedding)
