wedding + event invitations
Our process begins with our Client Questionnaire. (For local clients, we're always down to meet over coffee!) Once we have a good feel for the scope of your project,we'll email you an estimate. After the estimate is approved- a 50% deposit is placed- payable online or by personal check. At this time you should also provide the content (wording and specifics) to include in the design of your project. Once we have received your deposit, the design process will begin.
After receiving your first round of proofs, you will then have the opportunity to provide feedback and inform us of any changes you'd like to make. The changes are then completed and submitted to you for approval. After everything is agreeable, it will be processed into a final proof and sent back with your final invoice. Before we can begin production of your invitations, you’ll need to review and confirm via email that every detail is correct- especially spelling, grammar and punctuation! Once the digital proof is approved for production and the final balance is paid, Darling + Pearl is not responsible for any future changes or mistakes.
- For invitations, we recommend starting the design process 3-4 months before your mailing date
- Save the Dates should be mailed 5-10 months prior to your event, taking the number of far traveling guests into consideration
- Wedding Invitations are most effectively sent 8 weeks prior to your event
