We love our clients and spend hours upon hours making sure that everything they have chosen is a perfect fit for their wedding. Nothing makes us happier! Myself and other vendors have noticed a trend among couples wanting to get the most out of their wedding day by giving vendors only one hour to unload and set up every detail of their ceremony and reception. One hour. Yes, this gives you more time for your reception, especially if a venue has a time frame that you have to abide by, but most venues will let you add an hour or two for an additional cost. Giving your vendors only one hour can be done, but you will want to factor in the cost of additional staffing to do so. Your vendors reputations depend on your wedding being set up properly and on time and if you have guests arriving and your band or DJ are still setting up, lighting is being installed, your guest table details are being completed and your ceremony decor is still being unloaded and installed, it sets a bad tone for your arriving guests.. To keep things in check, always factor 2 hours of set up time prior to guest arrival on your big day. Guests normally arrive 30 minutes prior to your ceremony start time. We know how much time, money and planning you put into your wedding day. We want your day to be magical and memorable for you and your guests! When it comes to your wedding, it's all about the details! Here's to happy planning! xo
Do the thoughts of sending wedding invitations completely stress you to the point of no return? There's no need! In fact, you should be excited!

Since we like to keep things local, Rifle Paper is a perfect match for our clients.
Gather your guest list and addresses and let us take care of the rest. We will find the best stamps, address your invitations and send them for you...on time!
If you are planning a destination wedding or have a large number of out of town guests, plan on sending a 'Save The Date' card.
Just. Do. It. If you are planning special events for your wedding, a wedding website is always a great idea. Your guests will thank you and they will be able to spend the year anticipating your fabulous wedding. Don't forget stamps when budgeting your invites. Normally 1-2 stamps per invite and 1 stamp per response card is perfect. If you are looking for specialty stamps that are not available from USPS, they will cost a little more.
Save The Dates: Send 6 months to a year
Wedding Invitations: Send 2-3 months prior to your wedding
Response Date on Invites: 3-4 weeks prior to your wedding day
(since we know some guests never respond on time)
Have fun with your invitations!
Ps. If you order your invites from Minted, you can upload your guest list and addresses and they will print the outer envelopes for you. What, what?!! Yes!
