Once we have received your completed order and payment we will send you proofs for all your personalised stationery. If you don't have all the details for the content of your on-the-day items (such as menus, table plan and orders of service), don't worry as we can sort these out later and dispatch them separately from your invitations. If you have any queries about ordering, check out our FAQ's.

We try to keep all non-stationery items in stock at all times, but we may have limited stock of some item. If we do not expect to be able to dispatch your order within the normal time you will be contacted via email. You will have the opportunity to cancel part or all of your order if you need your items before we can send them.


The available delivery options will be shown during checkout. Delivery is calculated based on the weight of items ordered and the destination.

We currently deliver to the UK and Ireland. We can on occasion arrange delivery to other destinations within the EU - but please contact us first for a quote.

All delivery services are estimates and refer to working days. Royal Mail 1st Class and Recorded services deliver Monday to Saturday. Special Delivery and Courier services are delivered Monday to Friday only. All except 1st class and Airmail will require a signature upon delivery. 

On The Day stationery (Table Plans, Orders of Service etc.) ordered more than 8 weeks before your wedding would not normally be dispatched at 4 weeks, as we work backwards from your wedding date. Proofs would be sent approx 3 weeks before your wedding, with the aim of dispatching the order 2 weeks before the wedding.


There is no charge for delivery of invitation samples. For all other items delivery options will be shown during checkout.

Personalised Stationery

As all stationery items are personalised with your individual details, refunds and exchanges will only be made if the stationery is faulty or does not meet the specifications of your order. This does not affect your statutory rights.


If you are not completely satisfied with your non-personalised item, you may return it to us within 14 days of receipt in unused condition in its original packaging. You will be refunded the purchase price for the product(s) returned. Delivery charges will not be refunded.

Your rights to return goods are protected under the EU Distance Selling Directive which can be found at

Items which arrive damaged or faulty, or incorrectly supplied must be notified in writing within 14 days of receipt. We will replace or refund the damaged goods as required.
