Order of Service Covers

  • Important Wedding Stationery Timeline


    Sending out your wedding stationery on time is a crucial part of wedding planning that should be given proper thought to and should not be delayed. After all, how else would your guests know the important wedding details - when, where, what time and how to dress?When it comes to your save-the-dates, wedding invitations and other wedding stationery there’s some general etiquette rules and order you should follow. Keep reading to find out where to begin!

    Save- the-Date Cards : One year to six months before

    The general rule of thumb for save-the-dates is the earlier the better. Especially when it comes to destination weddings, where sending out your save-the-date cards early will give your guests plenty of time to make arrangements (requesting vacation days from work etc) and budget to make sure they are a part of your big day. Aim to send out your save-the-date cards six months before the wedding latest and one year ahead for destination weddings.

    Ideally your cards should reflect your wedding theme, but if you really haven’t locked in one yet opt for a simple design style featuring a picture of the two of you or of the proposal if you have one.

    Choose a Wedding Stationery Vendor & Order Your Wedding Invitations : Six months before

    Make sure you give yourself plenty of time for this step as you don’t want to choose your wedding invitations in a rush! Give yourself plenty of time to browse through invitation design style and make sure you have all the correct wedding information. Ask friends for recommendations and spend some time on local bridal forums looking for tips and wedding stationer suggestions.

    Choosing an online wedding stationery company like DreamDay Invitations, gives you the freedom to order your wedding invitations online quickly easily from the comfort of your couch and no risks as there is a 100% unconditional guarantee on all orders, you can opt to receive a sample and they are made in Australia.

    Don’t forget to include a RSVP card along with a self-addressed envelope, wedding website details (if you’re having one) and in the case of destination wedding invitations, you’ll need to include a separate card with travel and hotel information too.

    You just don’t have enough time when planning a wedding, so opt to have your wedding stationer take care of the addressing of your cards and envelopes - it’ll save you the valuable spent handwriting them.

    Sending Wedding Invitations : Two to three months before

    Once you’ve received your wedding invitations and granted there’s no errors that require a reprint, the next step would be to send out your wedding invitations. Aim to send out the wedding stationery suite ( inclusive of wedding invitation, RSVP card and any other cards) two months before the wedding at the latest. Destination wedding invitation cards should be sent out at least three to four months before since there’s a significant amount of planning required by your guests.


    Wedding Reply Cards | Wedding Stationery Timeline


    Make sure to include a ‘reply by date’ on your RSVP cards which is generally three weeks before the wedding. This gives you plenty of time to get a final headcount - important information for the caterers and other vendors providing a service for your wedding.

    On The Day Wedding Cards : Three to four weeks before

    Ideally order these wedding stationery items in the same style as your wedding invitation design. You can opt to order anything from order of service covers, table numbers, place cards and seating charts to individual menus and bomboniere tags.

    If you prefer an eclectic design approach, there is no hard and fast rule that requires all wedding cards to use the exact same design and you can opt choose matching design styles for an unique look.

    As done when ordering your save the date cards and wedding invitations, make sure to double check all information on the cards before approving the design. The tiniest of typos can ruin the overall look of your beautiful wedding stationery.

    Thank You Cards: Three to six weeks post-wedding

    Most of the time couples tend to get caught up with life post-wedding and tend to put off sending out thank you cards by a year or sometimes just never. Etiquette dictates that your thank you cards should be sent out ideally three weeks after receiving a wedding gift. Finding the time to do this is often the problem. To solve this order your thank you cards in advance or if it’s a photo card, choose the design in advance and arrange to send the stationer your favourite picture from the wedding a couple of days after the wedding.

    Once the cards arrive make it fun by splitting the load with your other half on a Friday night with a bottle of champers to keep you going - you’ll be done before you know it!
