Beautiful WEDDING stationery

NZ wedding invitations and day-of stationery

A beautifully designed wedding invitation is your friends and families introduction to your wedding. If it inspires your fiancé’s mates to actually RSVP, then that’s a huge bonus too!

Your chosen design builds anticipation for your big day and shares all the important details – whatever ‘important’ means to you (like, it’s black tie so that means NO jeans Uncle Jim). 

Explore our range of wedding invites and find your match.

WEDDING INVITATIONS & WEDDING STATIONERY

Your wedding invitations and day-of stationery pieces are personalised especially for your wedding. Details are added, design elements tweaked and colours changed to suit your needs. 

Our experienced NZ designers are here to help, and act a fresh set of eyes, an advisor and cheer-squad. We’ve got tactful wording ideas to tackle any guest dramas upfront (like Uncle Jim’s jeans, requesting cash without sounding rude, or requiring vaccine passes from all guests. Jean-free Uncle Jim results not guaranteed).

Wedding Invitation Designs

The only mail that seems to arrive is junk mail and bills… so when you check your letterbox and find a wedding invitation, it’s a special occasion!

Wedding invitations set the scene for your friends and family. The style, colours and level of attention to detail convey what they can expect from your wedding day, but should also reflect your style and personality as a couple. RSVP inserts and extra information cards contain details to help wedding guests organise attendance.

This perfect day is sitting in your imagination – the invitation is your first chance to express this vision to your guests.

This includes changing colours, and any tweaks required to fit the design to your preferred wording.

Your personal designer will help ensure your wedding invitation says just the right thing, guiding you on appropriate etiquette if needed. We’ll help you nut out all those little details needed on your wedding invites!

You should allow around two weeks for your wedding invitation process, and about a week for your Save the Dates. This time encompasses the design process, any revisions you request, printing and courier delivery. More info here.

We recommend placing your order at least four to six months prior to your wedding, to give your guests enough notice. A detailed wedding invitation timeline is available here.

You’ll receive an electronic draft mockup of your wedding stationery before it goes to print – so you can see how everything looks, and request any changes or tweaks. Up to two rounds of revisions are included.

If you’d like to receive a hard copy of your invitation, prior to approving it for printing, then order a printed proof.  This allows you to see a physical copy of the invitation, check the colour is what you expect, and the card is the right fit for the vision you have in mind.

All of Be My Guest Design’s wedding invitations are professionally printed on a high quality, colour calibrated commercial digital production printer in Mosgiel, New Zealand.

Printing our stationery in-house allows us to control quality and prioritise turnaround times.

If you’ve got terrible handwriting or want to personalise wedding invitations with guest names printed directly onto the invite, you can! This optional service comes at no charge for wedding invitations, or at a small additional cost for your Save the Dates.

More information on printing guest names on your wedding invites is available here.

Printing on the reverse side of your wedding invitations and any RSVP/insert cards is included if you want it – at no extra charge.

Reverse side printing is available for a small additional charge for Save the Date cards.

Each invitation comes with options for high quality white or kraft envelopes. Black, silver and other coloured envelopes are available too for a small additional cost.

We are really proud that our high quality envelope range is entirely New Zealand made.

We understand that wedding budgets can be tight – so where available, we offer a basic white envelope.

Also known as “Save our Date Cards”, these are sent out around six months before your wedding invitations. Get them out between 18 months to 6 months prior to your wedding (more information on sending Save the Date Invitations here).

SHARE YOUR GRATITUDE

WEDDING thank you cards with photos

Communicating your gratitude to your wedding guests by sending thoughtful thank you cards is the final piece of wedding admin most couples need to look after.

The thank you card is the most important piece of wedding stationery after the actual wedding invitation. Your guests have given up their day, dressed to the nines, and probably bought you a generous gift. The absolute least you should do is send them a thoughtful token of your gratitude.
