1. We’ve just booked our Wedding Venue, now what?
Firstly many congratulations on your engagement.
Now you have your wedding date you have two options. Depending on how far away the date is / whether it it on a popular date / people will need to arrange travel etc, you may choose to send out save the dates to ensure their friends and family hold the date.
Alternatively you may choose to go straight to invitations.
2. Stationery Timeline
Here are some rough guidelines for when to sending out your wedding stationery:
Save the Dates
- Around 1+ years in advance
- 4 – 6 months (if you have sent save the dates)
- 6 – 12 months (if you have not sent save the dates )
On the Day items
- Send these items to print no later than 3 weeks before the wedding to allow for production, postage, and any reprints if required
3. When should I get in touch?
Ideally as early as possible! Once a couple has all the required information for their invitations, it can take anything from 2 days to 2 months to finalise the designs.
4. Why should I choose Grace & Bramble to create my stationery?
With over 12 years of experience as a wedding stationer, you are in safe hands as we work closely with each couple to create something truly unique to you and your big day.

6. I’m happy with the quote, what next?
You have an idea on costings, the next step is to email over all the text/ details for the item we are working on first. I will then begin work on the pdf proofs. When you are happy with the proofs, we send everything to print for you.

Yes. Once we have all you details together, we will create a digital PDF proof and email it to you to check colours, fonts, spellings, layout etc.
