Wedding stationery checklist for February

So January went on FOREVER, right!? Now here we are in February and it’s full steam ahead, stationery wise, for many of you planning spring and summer weddings. It’s not too early to get started on those autumn celebrations either. Here’s my complete wedding stationery checklist for February, to keep you on track.

1. Order your save the date cards

for 2025 and early 2026 weddings

The idea time to send save the date cards 12 to 18 months before your wedding.

But, if you are keen to get started and have booked your date and venue you are good to go.

Any time up to two years in advance is absolutely fine!

2. Order your wedding and evening reception invitations

for weddings from June to September 2024

The ideal time to send your wedding invitations is between four and eight months before the big day. Allow time to have them designed, proofed, and printed, so order them between six and ten months before your wedding. Click any of the images below for more wedding invitation inspo.

3. Order your on the day stationery

for weddings from February to April 2024

On the day stationery is everything you will need for the big day itself. Things like your welcome sign, order of the day, and reserved seating tags for your ceremony. Table plan, place cards, menus, and more for your reception. Click any of the pictures below for more inspo

4. Don’t forget the all important thank you cards

the last piece of wedding stationery you need

Thank you cards are the perfect way to round off your wedding stationery suite. A personal, handwritten note to your nearest and dearest is a must. If you have tied the knot in the last six months, then it’s not loo late!

What on earth do you write in thank you cards?

How to action your wedding stationery checklist for February

  • You can reserve your production slot for me to make your wedding stationery for any time in the next 12 months.
  • A £50 deposit will secure each production slot (you might need two: one for invites & one for on the day stationery).
  • For save the dates & thank you cards, pay in full with your order and lead time is about 2 weeks.
  • Remember – you DON’T need to have all the details (numbers, wording, names etc) finalised to get your slot for invitations or wedding day stationery booked.

Top tip
If your wedding is in early summer this year, it’s not too late to get your invitations from me. My lead time is usually around two weeks from approval of proofs. So, if you get everything sorted by the end of February, your invitations should be ready my mid March, if not before.
