IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR COUPLES GETTING MARRIED IN 2015:
We are on the verge of being fully booked and therefore are taking on limited orders. Kindly contact us and let us know your wedding date prior to placing an order so we're sure we can fit the order in our schedule. Note that we have to prioritize couples who desire to book several of our services (photography, styling etc. as well as stationery). We will provide FREE day of stationery (menus and favor tags) for any couples who book our photography services!
What is the order process?
- Have a look through our website for the design(s) which most strikes you-- but keep in mind that we can customize any of it to suit your fancy!
- If you’d like to, order a sample pack. Note that we are no longer sending out sample packs for weddings in 2013 due to being on the verge of being fully booked.

Kindly keep in mind that we cannot guarantee delivery prior to the 8 week mark so if you need the order sooner, be sure to request a rush order. We have several rush order options available. Please note that passport invitations take 8-12 weeks to ship due to the extensive design process.
I’ve ordered samples, when can I expect them to arrive?
- Your samples will arrive within 4-6 weeks of placing the order. Depending on the flurry of constant activity in our studio and the distance it has to go to get to you as they are sent from the European studio, they could arrive a lot sooner! But please plan on 4-6 weeks, in general.
What happens after I place my order?
- Within 2-3 days after placing your order, you will be contacted by one of us here at Vintage Invites who will walk with you through the design process. This is a relationship which will be ongoing. You can be in touch at any time with anything!
