All of our designs are available in lots of different colours and colour combinations. Please do not hesitate to get in touch via email to discuss your requirements.
How much notice is required between placing an order and receiving the delivery?
Orders for invitations, are normally dispatched for posting, usually about 4 months before the wedding date. So as much notice as possible before that 4 month point to enable us to complete your order would be greatly appreciated. For small orders under 150 items, we would expect a minimum of 5 weeks notice to produce your order and dispatch. It is advisable to email an enquiry about the date you need the order by to ensure that it can be fulfilled on time to avoid disapointment.
Do your invitations include envelopes and inserts in the price?
All our invitations come with envelopes and inserts included in the price - we also include a basic RSVP with all invitation designs too! All envelopes are available in either Matt white or ivory. Coloured envelopes and Pearlescent envelopes are available on request and these incur an extra charge.
Can I book a production date in advance?
Once an order is placed with us we will contact the customer shortly afterwards to arrange a production date. We can take bookings up to 12 months in advance. A financial deposit of £50 would be require to secure a production time slot in the diary (this is not the same as a delivery date) The deposit will be deducted from the total of your final order. This deposit is not refundable on cancellation of an order.
Do I need to order all of my stationery items in one go?
No. It is often the case that the quantities for your other stationery items depend on the response from your wedding invitations.You can place your remaining wedding stationery order separately and we will have all your design and colour preferences remembered to make ordering your other stationery items extra easy. You can reserve a time slot in our diary with a £50 deposit.
Will I see proofs before my wedding stationery is printed?
Yes. We will email you your proofs along with a proofing form.It is only once you have approved these proofs by filling in the proofing form and returning it to us via email that we will proceed with your order. Proofs need to be approved by the stated date in order for your stationery to be completed within the timescale.
What should I check for on my proofs?
Your proof will show you how your wedding insert is going to appear to your guests.You should therefore check that all spelling is correct, you are happy with the layout, all stationery items are included, all dates and information including names are correct and the colours you have chosen are correct. We include a proof check sheet with every set of proofs, making it easy and straightforward for you to check.
What if I notice an error on my order after I have approved the proof and said I am 100% happy to go to print?
Once you have checked though your proofs and signed them off saying you are happy to go to print, then we (Little h With Love) are not held responsible for any errors that have not been highlighted in the proof. If you wish for the missed error to be rectified, then further payment for materials will be required to do so.
I am not sure how many invites I am going to need.
Please give us a good estimation to the numbers of invitations etc that are required when placing your order. We advise customers to purchase an extra 5-10 invitations than the estimated amount required. This to be on the safe side as there can often be unforeseen last minute changes to your guest list.If you do however, find that you have not ordered enough invites and need additional ones then this can be arranged. (additional invitations will be charged at the price per invite when the initial order was placed). We will still have your details and colours on record so this is not too much of a problem so long as the final amount of invites required is finalised on approval of your proofs.Please note that you will be unable to amend the numbers to your order once final proofs have been accepted.
What if I wish to cancel my order?
Due to the handmade element of your wedding invitations, if you wish to cancel your order before your proofs have been approved then the 50% of the initial total cost will be retained by Little h With Love and the order will be cancelled. If you wish to cancel your order after the proofs have been approved by yourself then the full total cost will be non returnable. All cancellations must be made in writing and sent via email to Little h With Love.
How much is Delivery?
Delivery costs for orders, vary depending on the size and weight of the order. The Standard Delivery charge for ordering a sample is £2.00. All orders are sent via Royal Mail so our postage and packing charges will reflect Royal Mail's prices.
How long will it be before I receive my order?
We usually say that from payment of an order to receiving the order usually takes approximately 5 weeks (this can vary during busy periods but we will discuss this with you during the ordering process). If a production time slot has been booked into the diary, then customers should expect to receive their order approximately 4 weeks after this time.
