when to order day-of wedding items

Your day-of wedding order should start with your wedding invitation suite order. We recommend having a list of items needed, along with a reserved budget for those items. Once you send out your invitation suites, please send us detailed information of what is needed (program fans, vellum menus etc.) along with an idea of guest count. This will help determine an approximate quote, and will start the proofing process.

For simple items (flat programs, flat menus, name cards etc), everything needs to be finalized, paid and signed off 3 weeks before the items are needed in hand (please note this does not mean 3 weeks before the wedding, as we will need time to mail the items)

For specialty items, such as acrylic signs and specialty printed items, final approval and payment is due 4 to 5 weeks before items are needed in hand.


  • Order extras! For menus, programs and thank you cards, always ensure to order a minimum of 5 extras for additional last-minute guests (yes, it does happen!)
  • Do not order as many programs as you have guests! Remember, not all guests will take a programs, usually one per couple will be enough
  • Double and triple check your name cards and seating assignments before sending it to us! For templates for name cards and escort cards, please see our page here.
  • If you are unsure between a seating chart and escort cards, please remember that last minute additions are possible with name cards, but not possible with seating charts
