Save the Date
Save the date cards set the tone of the wedding, and is a polite way to give your guests advance notice of the date and location. Save the Dates are usually sent out for destination weddings, if you’re inviting lots of out of town guests or your wedding is held over a long weekend.
Send: 6-8 months before the wedding
The invitation covers all the important details including the date, time and venue. Traditional invitations begin with the bride and groom's parents inviting the guests, however contemporary designs tend to lean away from this.
Send: 2-3 months before the wedding
Reply cards are designed to match your wedding invitations and provide guests with an easy method to respond. Reply cards may also request a meal choice, indicate dietary restrictions or reserve a seat on the bus service.
Gift Registry Card
A gift registry, or wishing well card, lets your guests know where you’re registered for gifts or includes a poem asking guests to contribute to your wishing well.
Details cards provide your guests with any additional information you'd like them to know. This could include accommodation details for a destination wedding or for out of town guests, bus service info or morning after brunch.
Send: with the Save the Date / Invitation
Direction cards provide your guests with the location details of your wedding. Direction cards are great for out of town guests or if your location is difficult to find. Add in an illustrated map to make things even clearer for your guests.
A wedding program can be either a card or folded cover, incorporating all of your ceremony details including the order of ceremony and bridal party. Finish with ribbon or twine, or turn it into a fan to keep your guests cool during a Summer ceremony.
Excite your guests for the meal ahead with printed wedding menus which match your invitations. Place menus down the table, or include one at each guest’s place setting and double as a place card
Place cards are used at the reception to indicate where each guest will be seated. Place cards can be in the form of a flat card, folded tent card or tag.
