Wedding Save the Dates

Save the Dates are a great way to let your guests know about your wedding.  Of course that’s what invitations do!  So at times Save the Dates may be a nice to do but not something you need to do, at other times they may be a real life saver.  That’s because you can officially reserve your guests without getting everything together that you might need for sending the invitations out.   They’re really useful to stop people inadvertently booking holiday during your wedding.  They can be sent out as soon as you’ve booked the venue.

So if you don’t have some of the details confirmed you can tell your guests when you’ll be getting married.  Maybe where or at least give them an area of the country and that an invitation will be following.  You may even want to say you when you plan to send out the invitations.

At Artemis Stationery it’s two of my items that most commonly get used for wedding save the dates.  These are the postcard sized cards and the magnets.  The Postcard is the most cost effective, even more so now I offer multiple production techniques so where as the one’s I print (very high quality) are £1.85 per invite.  Using other printers I can offer a more standard quality of print from £1.05 each if you need 100.  The prices vary based on quantities as 50 are £1.80 each.  Though some small discounting may be possible if you book and put deposits down on invitations and day stationery if the designs are similar.

The magnets are only available as a handmade item and are mostly £4.  The magnet sits in the middle so the front can be a beautiful design to wow your guests and everyone who sees it proudly sitting on their fridge and the details can go on the reverse.

At the time of writing I’m also running a competition for 40 postcard save the dates on my facebook page so take a look.

At Charlton House Hotel

Come meet Artemis Stationery, for fine and luxury wedding invitations and wedding stationery (<— gratuitous keyword alert) in Somerset at Love Actually’s Charlton House Hotel wedding fair on the 11th October.  Charlton House Hotel is just outside Shepton Mallet and I was lucky enough to be involved in a flower school event here recently organised by Sabine Darrall.  Sabine ran a Brit Luxe workshop at Charlton House and I supplied wedding stationery to compliment it.  You can see the welcome sign I designed for it here.  Hopefully the rest will be featuring on English Wedding Blog soon – nudge nudge wink wink Claire 😉 😉
