Frequently asked questions

When should we send our save the dates and wedding invitations?

Save the dates should be sent out around 4 months ahead of your wedding day. If you are having a destination wedding, I would advise sending your save the dates 6 months before to ensure your guests are available. For wedding invitations, I recommend sending these out 6-8 weeks before your wedding.

Bearing this in mind, you will need to start thinking about your wedding stationery 6-8 weeks in advance of your save the dates. Production time is around 5 weeks, however, bespoke items may take slightly longer.

Do you have a minimum order quantity?

Yes, my minimum order quantity is 40 for most wedding stationery items. For some one the day wedding stationery, this quantity may be less – please contact me if you have specific requirements.

How long will our order take?

At Ochre Weddings, I aim to process and print your invitations within 5 weeks from order confirmation. Please bear in mind that this may be longer depending on your requirements. Bespoke designs usually take 6-8 weeks. If you need your wedding stationery more quickly, I can sometimes expedite your order – please let me know if you are in a hurry!

Can we customise the collections?

You can customise collections, however, this will be subject to an additional charge dependent on the scale of the changes required.

Can we alter the wording?

Yes! I have a few wording templates that you are more than welcome to use, or, you can supply all the wording yourself. Do remember to check for spelling as I can’t be held responsible for errors once proofs have been approved.

Do you offer custom wax seal colours?

Yes! If you have a specific colour or motif in mind, please let me know.

Can I choose my own ribbon?

Of course, please just let me know what you are looking for and I can order and source ribbon for you. I have provided a small selection of ribbon choices for each of the collection designs but if you would like something different, I am more than happy to help!

How long does delivery take?

I use Royal Mail Special Delivery to send your wedding stationery items. This way, you can track your wedding stationery and it ensures they arrive quickly and securely. Your wedding stationery should be with you within 2-3 working days.
