How can I contact Ink Hearts Paper?
You can contact Alexa via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via our contact section.
When should I order my Wedding stationery?
Things you should consider first and foremost.
- Is your wedding overseas or in a destination one hour+ away from your home base?
- Will you have guests attending from interstate or overseas?
If you are a yes to either of those two questions we recommend sending a Save The Date.
A Save The Date provides simple details like the date and location of the wedding. They can be sent out 7 months prior to the wedding date and give guests plenty of notice to save the date and book flights and accommodation where necessary. Once they are sent out you have some time to lock in all the details without worrying about accommodation being booked out or if your loved ones from overseas can make it.
We suggest working backwards from 3 months prior to your wedding date which is when we recommend sending out your invitations. You will need to know numbers for catering, venues etc roughly 3 weeks before the big day. By sending the invitations out 3 months before it gives your guests 7 weeks to clear their dairies and RSVP and you the perfect amount of time to follow guests up and confirm numbers with your vendors.
Destination Weddings and overseas guests? Order Save The Dates around 8 months before your wedding day.
