Simple, elegant and timeless – our flat invitation cards work well for all themes and designs
Our flat invitations are made up of two or more layers of card firmly fixed together. The top card is printed with your invitation details while the back is blank.
Embellishment can range from a super simple, elegant Swarovski pearl or crystal accents to full on bling, brooches and bows!
They can be used for wedding or evening invitations, but we think they are most suited to evening invitations where you are less likely to need to give your guests lots of information. You can of course include loose guest information and RSVP cards if you want to.
Our flat invitations vary in size between collections. The smallest are landscape 15cm x 10cm, some are are a tall shape at 9cm x 21cm and most are square measuring 15cm x 15cm.
As with all our invitations, printing and white or ivory envelopes are included.
A classic looking invitation that your guests can stand up on their mantelpiece.
Folded invitations are a classic, just like a birthday card that your guests can stand up on their mantle piece. Most popular sizes are square or tall, but we can make any size you like. The embellishment is on the outer of the folded card and all the information is on the paper insert.
The invitation itself will take up one side of the insert and a limited amount of guest information (usually venue details and a gift poem) can be printed on the facing page.
Perfect if you prefer a more traditional style of invitation, you don’t have masses of extra information to tell your guests and you don’t want to include a reply card (although you can slot one in if you want to!).
Order of service
For a church service, this contains the details of your wedding ceremony, including music, readings & hymns. You can choose standard A5 size or dinky little pocket size booklets, and generally we include up to 8 pages of text (extra pages can be added if needed). A simple design to coordinate with your stationery is perfect, perhaps a kraft card outer tied with lace or twine for a Rustic & Quirky theme, or classic white or ivory with a fine satin ribbon for a more Classic & Elegant look.
For more details about what to include in your order of service, see our blog post HERE.
Order of the day
For a civil ceremony an order of the day, or order of ceremony contains music and readings as well as a running order and approximate timings for the day. It is not essential but can help your guests to know what to expect during the day, particularly if you are following a non-traditional timetable. They can also make a nice keepsake from the wedding. You could have the same booklet type format as our order of service or a more simple folded or flat card sized to fit the information.
For both order of service and order of the day we recommend one per household/family, although many prefer to order one per guest.
The all important follow up
It is important to send cards or notes after your wedding thanking your guests for coming and for any gifts you have received.
Classic thank you cards are usually folded with a paper insert, but if you would like a different size or shape just let us know and we can give you a quote. How about post cards, luggage labels or bookmarks?
Most couples choose to have them left blank for a personal handwritten message, but we can print them if you want us to. All our thank you cards come with white or ivory envelopes.
Order one for each household that attended your wedding or sent a gift, remember that evening guests will often bring gifts as well so allow for those too. Also include some extras for people who helped out, or who were involved with your wedding day, and for those who couldn’t attend but maybe sent a gift.
