Once you have finalised exactly what it is you’re after, it’s time to place your order, but there are still a couple of things that you need to consider even at this stage!
How much to order?
· If you are requesting fully personalised stationery where the supplier will not only design and supply the item but will also customise each piece with the names of your guests then you will only need to order the exact number you require. That said, if there is any chance that you may change your mind before the invites go out and decide not invite someone or instead ask someone else, then it is well worthwhile getting hold of a couple of blank invites just to be safe.
· If one of your close relatives or friends is unable or highly unlikely to be able to make the Wedding, it is always courtesy to send them an invite anyway. For many, especially the elderly, it is always ‘nice to be asked’ and the invite will make a lovely keepsake for them.
· For those of you who plan to ‘address’ the stationery yourselves or use supplied materials to do a DIY job, we strongly recommend that you get hold of some extras for contingency purposes in case of mistakes (we recommend around 10% extra just to be sure).
· You may find that discounts are given for bulk purchases so consider ordering just a few extra and you could ironically save some money!
