So many time-honored “rules” surround weddings. Can I tell my guests what to wear? Should I tell my guests to leave their phones in their pockets? Do I need to invite all the kiddos in the family?
Today I'm exploring the reasoning behind and need for some of this traditional wedding etiquette mumbo jumbo. Of course, these are suggestions, and sometimes rules are meant to be broken, but they act as great guidelines should any questions come up.
Relax, and let’s dive in.
Set up a mini consultation with Freebird Paperie today to discuss your custom wedding invitations and day-of stationery!
Wedding planning is FULL of details. Venue, caterer, florals, oh my! While most items are for the actual day, it's important not to neglect your stationery timelines. The save the dates and invitations are the first glimpse guests will see of the main event. These items also offer valuable information to your guests so they can plan ahead. Use this timeline to take the guess work out of what needs to be sent and when.
Your First Wedding To-Dos Before You Say "I Do."
This time of year is magical. I love watching my family and friends (and Facebook friends) get engaged amidst the lights, trees, and holiday cheer. Having been through the wedding planning process myself, I know how incredibly exciting it is! But I also know how overwhelming it can be – the date, the cake, the dress! Where should you begin? So to get you off to a good start, here are my top five wedding planning must-dos for newly engaged couples.
Never underestimate the importance of printing methods when designing stationery. There are countless options in creating a finished product unique to you and your style. I'm often asked what is the difference between two of the more popular printing methods – letterpress and flat printing. I have to say, you can't go wrong with either choice. When done well, both choices produce a beautiful end product. But which one is right for your stationery? Use this infographic to compare letterpress and flat printing to help you decide!
You love what you see, but ultimately you do want to know the cost before you get too invested. I have been there and totally understand. If you are like most brides and are on a budget, you are concerned with the overall costs of your wedding invitations and accompanying stationery.
The great thing about Freebird Paperie is that all orders are entirely à la carte. There are no set packages, so you get exactly what you want and pay exactly what you're comfortable with.

If you are ready to get a complete estimate and ask the questions you have floating around in your mind (like what's a belly band?), simply set up a free consultation with Freebird Paperie today!
With all of that being said, if you're just looking for a rough idea of starting costs, I can help with that. Non-custom, flat printed invitation orders (those that are pre-designed) start at $215 for 50 invitations and 50 RSVP cards with envelopes. Custom invitation orders begin at $350. The average investment by each couple is around $600. We will discuss everything more in depth during your consultation.
Both of the above costs include 10% extra envelopes for the invitations and RSVP cards.
