If you need anything urgently, please let The Leaf Press know and everything will be done to meet your timescales (if possible!).
Wedding invitations should be sent out a minimum of 6 weeks before the wedding, but many couples send them much earlier than this. As your order will take 2 weeks to complete, it’s a good idea to request samples and start thinking about how you’d like your invitations to look about a month before you intend to send your invitations out. Advice about when to send wedding invitations out can be found on the when should I send out wedding invitations blog post.
All other wedding stationery can be ordered nearer the time of your wedding but please allow 2 weeks for your stationery to be made. The Leaf Press recommends that you order everything at least 4 weeks before your wedding date and cannot guarantee acceptance of any orders received less than 2 weeks before your wedding.
This is entirely up to you. Some people prefer to order invitations first and then come back for everything else nearer their wedding date while others prefer to get everything sorted in one go. As long as you order each item in good time (see above) please choose whichever option suits you best.
