How It Works: Semi-Custom Wedding Invitations

In this post, I'll be guiding you through the steps of the Semi-Custom Wedding Invitation process, and answering frequently asked questions about how it all works. 

My semi-custom wedding collections are a simple and affordable way to incorporate luxurious, heirloom-quality invitations into your wedding experience. Requiring much less time and resources than completely custom suites, I recommend that couples consider semi-custom suites as a perfectly-appointed option for their wedding stationery. If one of the semi-custom collections seems like it may be a good fit for your wedding, follow the outline below and we can make it happen!

STEP 1: Select your collection | Please enjoy perusing the current selection of semi-custom wedding collections! Once you choose, you'll have the option to purchase the collection as a whole or just the individual cards that you need.

STEP 2: Wording and check out | You will be prompted to submit the wording you would like for each card prior to making your purchase. 

STEP 3: Design proofs | Within a week of your purchase, I'll send you drafts of the invitation suite. At this point, you'll review the proofs for accuracy, typos, and final approval. If you need any changes, one round of revisions is included with your purchase. 

STEP 4: Off to print! | Once your design is approved, I will prepare the files and send them to the printer. Once the cards and envelopes are printed, the printer will send them to me for inspection and addressing, if applicable. 

STEP 5: Addressing and Shipping | Once I receive the printed cards and envelopes, I'll address them if you'd like (totally optional), and then ship them to you! If you are ordering custom vintage postage from me, I'll add this to the package as well. I recommend you use this glue stick to adhere the postage.


What is the turnaround time?

Semi-custom invitation suites take about 3-4 weeks to produce, given prompt approval of design drafts.

When should I send out my wedding invitations?

Traditional timing is 8 weeks prior to the wedding. For a destination wedding, most couples mail 12 weeks prior to the wedding.
