1. How long have you been creating and designing wedding stationery for?
We have been lucky enough to offer blank, personalised and bespoke wedding stationery to couples within the UK and worldwide for over four years. In that time, we’ve worked with over 200 couples and simply love the uniqueness of each and every wedding.
2. How did you come to be in the industry?
We came to the industry in 2005, which was the same year I married at Down Hall, Hatfield Heath. At the time, we too were looking for wedding stationery – and had real problems finding something that really expressed our colourful style. There seemed to be many handmade specialists – but nothing that really stood out to us. It was after the wedding we decided to set up www.your-rsvp.co.uk which complemented our previous marketing, design and accountancy background. The wedding industry is such a fantastic one to be involved in and I simply love the variety and excitement that each wedding brings!
3. What makes you unique to other stationery companies?
Knowing the market inside and out, I think that the uniqueness of Your RSVP is mainly down to:
The range: We have wedding stationery to suit ALL wedding budgets, from blank wedding stationery that can be turned around in 7 days to the personalised and bespoke ranges, which offer fresh, funky and fabulous designs – all with real impactful stand out.
Our flexibility: We are extremely flexible and allow couples to play around with fonts and wording on all of their wedding stationery. Couples can pick and choose exactly the wedding stationery they need and aren’t restricted by numbers. So if they need 82 wedding invitations and 41 RSVP cards, it’s not a problem!
Easy online ordering: Ordering is so quick and easy online at www.your-rsvp.co.uk. Once they have placed their order, couples enjoy their own online account area. Its here they can approve / comment on their stationery items, pay online - even invite their friends and family to view the proofs.
The additional services: In addition to our wedding stationery ranges, we also provide services that complement Your RSVP. From personalised poems, calligraphy through to stationery addressing and stationery mailings.
4. What would you recommend is the 'essential' wedding stationery items for couples to have?
It’s easier to think about wedding stationery in two groups, guest stationery and wedding day stationery. I’ve popped together a quick list which we would deem as essential wedding stationery. Your RSVP is delighted to offer all of these products however:
• Save the date cards
• Wedding invitations (Essential)
• Evening /Reception invitations (Essential)
• Guest information cards
• RSVP cards (Essential)
• Thank you cards
Wedding day stationery
• Order of service cards
• Table plan (Essential)
• Place cards (Essential)
• Table names / numbers
5. What are the 'extra' wedding stationery items which will make a couple’s wedding stand out from the crowd?
For real stand out on your wedding day, there is nothing better than having a table plan and matching menus, place cards and table names. All these stationery items add such a colourful impact to the wedding breakfast venue and complement perfectly with the floral and chair decorations.
6. How far in advance would you recommend couples to start looking for their wedding stationery?
Normally couples send out their guest wedding stationery 6 weeks before the big day, but with the couples we’ve had the pleasure of working with the average is closer to 3-6 months. We can turn wedding guest stationery around in 4 weeks, sooner if it’s in quieter months. For wedding day stationery, couples need to start thinking about it around 6 weeks before the big day. Again we need about 4 weeks and would deliver a week before the wedding (just in case there are any last minute table plan changes – which there always is!).
