Reading time: 1 minute
I have a very brief post for you today... First of all, I'd like to get you into a festive mood!
Halloween is long gone, and I think we've got enough of November out of the way for it to be socially acceptable to make a Christmas playlist!
So hit play below, and dive right in...
why do i need to think about christmas?
While you may be getting married in Spring or Summer and the last thing on your mind are baubles, tinsel and snow, December might just be the perfect time to send out your invitations.
Sending them out at this point gives you plenty of time to embed in to make sure you get all of your RSVP responses back without any too last minute calls to your 2nd cousin who 'forgot' to put it in the post!
Couples thinking about posting their invitations in December also like to double up and send them with their Christmas cards- which brings me to the crux of this post!
December also happens to contain that wonderful festive period of gift giving when Royal Mail get very, very busy. If you're thinking of sending out your invitations, you need to consider the last post dates. This year, they are 20th December for 2nd Class, and 21st December for 1st Class. So if you would like your invitations to arrive before the Christmas, be sure not to miss these dates!
when should I order our invitations?
While I try and be as quick as possible, design and printing does take time. I normally advise 48 working hours for you to receive your first design proof, printing takes 5 working days, and everything is then posted with a 2 day courier (upgrades to next day delivery are available).
To make sure you have plenty of time to address your envelopes, pop all of the stamps on and drop them in the postbox before the last post cut offs, please place your order no later than:
Wednesday 6th December
