  • Assembling Your Wedding Stationery

    You’ve ordered your wedding stationery online and received them from DreamDay Invitations, stocked up on postage stamps and you’re all prepped to get your wedding invitations sent out this weekend - but what is the correct way to assemble them, especially when you have multiple cards in your wedding stationery suite?

    First of all, don’t look at this task on your wedding to-do list as a boring chore - enjoy it! Open up a bottle of wine, put some music on and get busy with your fiance or your bridesmaids (sure saves a lot of time!) and start an at-home assembly line while making a regular party of it!

    Usually when assembling your wedding stationery, the general rule of thumb is that wedding cards are assembled according to size and the largest card (which is normally the wedding invitation card) goes at the bottom and the rest of the cards are placed face up. However, if you have opted for a folded wedding invitation, the reply card and other enclosure cards should be placed within and not above it.

    Generally, the wedding reception card follows the invitation and is placed directly on top - remember to always place the reception card face up. The enclosure cards (directions/accommodations card or the wishing well card) should follow and should be placed face up on top of the reception card. The reply envelope will then placed printed side down above the enclosure cards - the envelope flap should always be on the left. Help save your wedding guests the time spent searching for stamps and pre-stamp your reply envelopes before adding to the wedding stationery suite.

    Once you’ve assembled the wedding stationery, it’s time to move onto placing them in envelopes. While some couples opt to have their envelopes addressed in calligraphy, others don’t have the time or budget that allow it and instead opt to take the convenient and affordable route of having their stationer print names and address directly on the front of the envelopes - such a time saver! The wedding invitation suite should be inserted left edge first in the case of a single card invitation and folded edge first for a folded wedding invitation. Be careful when sealing your envelopes as if it’s moistened too much, the envelope edge can end up looking puckered. We recommend using a bottled envelope moistener for a controlled action. To finish off the look of your wedding invitations (especially in the case of a formal wedding) you may want to consider adding a personalised monogram as a seal at the back of the envelopes.

  • How Much Do You Know About Wedding Invite Etiquette?

    How well informed are you when it comes to wedding invitation etiquette? Chances are you’re feeling a bit lost with everything from when to send out your wedding invitations, what to include in your wedding stationery suite and what wedding invitation wording to use. If you’re nodding along as you read this, grab a glass of wine and keep reading - we’ve got all the answers for you!

    When Should You Send out Your Wedding Invitations?

    You can never give enough notice so we usually advise customers to send out their save the date cards at least three to four months in advance. As we’ve said before, no one’s going to complain about being notified in advance so follow up your save the dates with your wedding invitations at least six to eight weeks before your big day.

    If you’re planning a destination wedding, plan to send out your destination wedding invites earlier to give your guests plenty of time to save up for their airline tickets and make arrangements to travel overseas - something everyone will appreciate, especially guests with kids!

    What’s the Best RSVP Deadline to Set?

    Again this really depends on your wedding theme, but the general rule of thumb is two to three weeks prior to the event. This will give you plenty of time to reach a final headcount and advise the caterers instead of having to guess and having a whole lot of RSVPs closer to the date once you’ve paid.

    Should Registry Details be Included on Save the Dates or Wedding Invitations?

    Save the Dates

    While several couples opt to include their registry details on either save the date cards or wedding invites, wedding etiquette dictates that this is a big no no. It is still considered impolite to include registry info on your wedding invites, instead include it on a wishing well card or opt to your wedding party, parents and close friends pass around information on where you’re registered to other guests.

    How Should Wedding Invites Be Addressed to Guests With Titles

    In the case of wedding invitations being sent to guests with titles, the following general rules apply:

    ● Generally when a husband is a doctor, the invitation wording includes the title as “Doctor and Mrs. Harrison”, while if the wife is a doctor it should be “Doctor Amy and Mr. Peter Harrison”. If both are doctors the wedding invitation can be simply addressed as “Drs. Amy and Peter Harrison.” ● When addressing a wedding invitation to a single woman it should be address as “Ms” unless she’s a doctor.
