Invitations on a Budget

As we offer custom design solutions for your wedding invitation we can work with you to create a unique invite just for you. You can view some samples of existing designs on this website. If you're working to a smaller budget here is some information on invitations on a budget, please discuss this with us as we have some tips & suggestions for keeping the costs down ...more>

Card Stocks

We carry several different cards in stock, mostly 300 gsm so nice and sturdy. In stock are white matt and silk (a slight gloss), ivory card, an off-white textured card, metallic white and metallic ivory. You can have coloured invites (eg. black invitation with white text) - the black is printed on to white card ...more>

Printing Individual Names on Invitations

Guest names can be printed on each individual wedding invitation. This will look very tidy, and adds to the presentation of the overall invite. There is a charge of $25 including GST to cover the time spent setting up a mail merge to print all your guest names on the invitations (regardless of the quantity of invitations you're after).

The second option is to have a thin line or empty space where the guest names are hand written names on the invitation. Alternatively you can leave no space for names, and write "... and... invite you to share wedding day" which leaves out the guest names altogether. The only issue with this is that you're not being specific with the people who are invited and you may possibly end up with more guests than originally intended. This issue can possibly be avoided by having the names written on the envelopes instead.

RSVP Cards

You can either put the RSVP details on the invitation if there is room, or you can have a separate card that the recipient can post back to you. These usually have a tick box with "yes" or "no," or we can have a perforated line in the middle of one card that has "yes" on one side and "no" on the other, and the guests can tear off and send back the applicable side. We can make matching RSVP cards for any invitation.

Information Cards

These are very useful to send out along with your invitations so that you can get extra details across to your guests. These can be made to suit your wedding invites. You can include information such as:

- You can list accommodation options in the area so that they don't have to drive or pay for taxis
- Information about the wedding gift registry, or specific stores you would like gift vouchers from
- It can have the address and a map to the venue for people that are driving themselves
- You can advise clients of transport options, eg. if you have organised shuttles from a central location to the venue
- Contact details - a contact phone number for the bride, groom or a parent may be useful in case people have any questions

Map to the Ceremony & Reception Venue

If people need to provide their own way to the venue a map will be very useful, especially if the venue is not well-known, or if you are having guests from out of town attending the wedding. We can include a map that is set up in a way that it matches the rest of the invitation theme.

Place Cards/Seating Charts

As a continuation of the theme of your invitations and wedding stationary we can organise name cards for at the reception. These are handy so that there is no confusion over where people are sitting. These can be cute little cards that are either flat or folded in half for each guest. A large seating chart is also useful and provides a map of where everyone sits and the table plan.

Order of Service

The size of the Order of Service pieces usually depends on how much information is to be added. If your Order of Service has hymns, prayers and a lot of additional text I would suggest have 1x A4 page of good quality paper folded in half. This can have a design to match the invitations to compete the wedding stationery set.

If you don't have as much text we can make the Order of Service the same size as the invitation (eg. if you have a DLE sized invitation, we can make a matching DLE sized Order of Service piece).

Menus

These can also be provided, and can be designed to match the invitations. It may pay to talk to the venue, as sometimes they provide menus as part of the package, as well as the little cards that have the name of each dish on buffet tables. Having menus that match the rest of the wedding stationery (along with table numbers, place name cards, seating charts) is a nice touch and compliments the theme of the wedding.

"Save The Date" Cards

If your wedding is a a few years away, or if you have people coming from overseas then we can make Save The Date cards to match your wedding invitations. These are especially useful for wedding guests that are extremely busy, or guests who will be travelling from overseas - the Save The Date cards will give them a date to work their flights, accommodation and other travel requirements around. These are also useful if you aren't able to confirm the venue, time etc quickly but still have a date in mind.

Thank You Cards

Thank you cards can be made up after the wedding. As well as thanking your guests and those involved with the wedding, these are a great way of sharing one of the professional shots with everyone, as not all your guests will be able to view the albums once you get them back from your photographer. The other option is to carry through the invitation design and fonts if you don't wish to include a photograph. We can make a folded card, or a flat piece in a variety of sizes.
