Order fulfillment

SAVE THE DATES
It’s an important pre-invitation and announcement to guests to reserve your date. It is ideal to send save the dates for destination weddings 10-12 months in advance. This gives guests plenty of time to plan for time off, book travel and accommodations, and take care of any other travel or wedding related requirements.
If you are ordering from an international location please adjust accordingly to allow longer shipping times.

​SEMI-CUSTOM INVITATIONS
Availability varies during peak times, and project turnaround depends on our current order load. Please contact us for current lead times and to reserve a spot to ensure your order is completed in time for your event. We usually recommend allowing 1-2 months for the entire process from design personalization to order completion. This does not include shipping, so if you are ordering from an international location please adjust for longer shipping times. Let us know when you are hoping to have your invitations in hand and we will do our best to work within your timeline.

CUSTOM INVITATIONS
Please apply as early as possible as we only takes on a certain number of custom designs throughout the year. We recommend book as early as 9-12 months, but no later than 6 months before your wedding date.
