And if you want something out of the ordinary, there are stationery designers who will hand-make everything in a design exclusive to you. Spend time choosing your stationery. It should set the scene for your wedding and reflect its style. And whatever you choose, do insist on good quality card. You’re spending a small fortune on your wedding, and you want your stationery to show what an important event it is. Make your stationery an early priority. It isn’t unusual for invitations to be sent out three months before the wedding and you need to allow time for them to be printed. Order your stationery at least six months before the wedding – longer if you are having it hand-made.

Stationery designer Debbie Sandell created Invitations by Hand from her love of painting, horticulture, weddings, and a small stationery fetish! She can produce an entire suite of beautiful hand-painted stationery, based on your choice of flowers and colours that you would like to match your special day. Send your invitations out on an original piece of art or choose your own design and have your stationery printed. The design will remain yours only. Alternatively, if time is of the essence, choose a printed design from Debbie’s stock paintings.
