A Wedding Stationery Timeline with Rose Press
Your wedding invitations set the tone and style for everything that is to come on your big day. It’s the first glimpse your guests will see; it will get them excited, give them the important details and leave them eagerly wanting more.
Here we chat to Rose Press who specialise in bespoke design, hot foil and letterpress print.
“We love nothing more than pretty paper, pantone charts and creating one-of-a-kind stationery just for you. We have put together the below stationery timeline to help answer all of your questions and stationery queries….”
A Year In Advance
Now the fun starts! Gather as many ideas as you can, and not just from other weddings! Remember inspiration can come from anywhere, pretty stationery online, blogs, lace from your dress or even a walk in the park. Note things down and take pictures so you can refer to them when needed. Pinterest is a great place to start but don’t get too carried away… It’s easy we know!
Rose Press Tip! Book a consultation and a coffee with Rose Press to talk through all your stationery ideas. We love to see all your thoughts and imagery whether online or in a scrapbook.
8 – 10 MONTHS
Send out your save the dates. These can be as minimal or as creative as you wish, from a simple postcard to a full wall calendar (yes it’s been done!) it’s important to let your guests know your date so they don’t go booking a holiday!
Rose Press Tip! Consider different printing techniques; letterpress and hot foil printing offer a touch of luxury to your wedding stationery.
6 – 8 MONTHS
Gather together the finer details for your invitations, do you also want to send out RSVPs, details cards? There is often more information than you first think; maps, hotels, taxi numbers to name but a few, so it’s a good idea to get this sorted.
Rose Press Tip! Allow 4-6 weeks for the design, proofing, production and assembly of a bespoke order.
3 – 6 MONTHS
Send out your invitations and wait for the first RSVP to land on your doorstep.
3 MONTHS TO GO
