WEDDING INVITATION ORDERING PROCESS
“Every great occasion begins with a memorable invitation”
Congratulations on your engagement! Hopefully your plans are going well, the date is set, your venue is chosen, your dress is ordered... now it’s time to inform your family and friends of the exciting day you have planned for them.
WHAT’S YOUR STYLE?
Your invitations are the first impression your guests have to your big day. At Helen’s Paperie, we can ensure your guests feel special from the very beginning.
Where to start...
When choosing invitations it’s probably best to start with colour and shape. Square or rectangle, portrait or landscape and then colour, the ivory & golds and the silvers & white are the most preferred bases for a wedding invitation choice. But …paper is my passion and we hold a huge portfolio of paper, endless supplies of patterned paper, polka dot paper, floral paper all in matt or pearlescent, and in nearly every colour you can imagine.
Helen’s Paperie is an authorized supplier of the Envelopment® Stationery range.
Think about if you want a traditional RSVP card included or if you prefer your guests to RSVP via text or email. Also another, consideration is how much information you want to give your guests. Guest Information cards are increasingly popular, details if your planned something after the rehearsal dinner or an event for the day after the wedding for close friends and family. Also, if you’re getting married abroad you may need to provide more detailed accommodation, Information on the area, flights, even sometimes a local hairdresser!!

You must post your wedding invitations at least 6 weeks before your wedding, and longer if getting married abroad.
Helen’s Paperie bespoke wedding invitations to be hand crafted takes time and you should consider this from the very moment you set your date. Wedding invitation orders are completed within 3-4 weeks from final proof sign off. Bespoke orders take longer.
We encourage all our customers to start the ordering process 4-6 months prior to their wedding date.

Once you have decided on your preferred design we request a non refundable 50% deposit to confirm your order. All invitation information including accommodation & direction details must be emailed to me. I will create a pdf file of your invitations and email them to you within 5 – 7 business days of receiving the order information for approval. Approval requires proof checking every word with careful attention. Check and double check spelling and punctuation of names, venue names, location & dates.
There is currently no charge for text changes as it takes a little to’ing and fro’ing before final approval. Remember your final approval is your final print sign off. Errors noticed afterwards with a reprint requested are charged to you the customer.
If you request guest names to be printed on your invitation please email this as an .xls document. And double check all guest names spelling prior to sending, as the names will be printed as they are supplied.
