Here are a few frequently asked questions regarding wedding stationery, that seem to pop up from time to time! If there's anything else you want to know that isn't covered here, please give us a call or email us on

Ideally you should send them out around eight to twelve weeks before the wedding to allow people time to reply. If your wedding is planned around Christmas or near a bank holiday though, you'll need to send out your invitations earlier so your guests have time to book accommodation. Remember to also add on the time it takes for us to design and print your wedding stationery. Please allow at least six weeks from placing your order to delivery. If you're in a bit of a hurry, do let us know and we will try our best to meet your deadline. Have a look at our ordering page for more details.

Save the Date Card
These are a great way of announcing your marriage and ensuring that your guests keep your special date free — plus you can send them out as far in advance as you like! Order one for each single person or couple you intend to invite to your wedding, plus a few extras.

Day Invitation
Order one for each couple or single person invited to the wedding ceremony and reception, plus a few spares.

Evening Invitation
Order one for each couple or single person invited to the evening reception only, plus a few extras.

Reply Card
These are not a necessity but are a really useful addition to ensure your guests reply to you on time! Order one for every invitation you’re going to send out.

Guest Information Card
Guest info cards are invaluable when it comes to conveying important information to your guests. As wedding invitations should ideally be kept as simple as possible, all of the other information — that you really need your guests to know — such as accommodation, directions and transport details, plus information about your gift list and whether children are invited etc, are listed on the guest info card. These can be designed to match your wedding stationery or you can create your own, simple typed sheet.
Include one per invite ideally.

Order of Service/Ceremony
Most people generally order one for each couple and one for each single guest. Remember to order them for the bridal party (bridesmaids, bride and groom etc) too!

This is fairly dependant on the size of your reception tables! The general rule of thumb is one menu between two people. So if you have a table that seats eight, you’d order four menus and so on...

Place Cards
Order one for each guest at your wedding breakfast — plus a few extras if you’re going to write them yourself, just in case!

Table Names/Numbers
Again this is dependant on the size of your reception tables, however one or two per table should suffice.

Thank-You Cards
For your wedding, you should order one for each couple or single person invited to the ceremony or reception (plus a few extras).
But as our thank-you cards are super-stylish and have your name and address printed on the back, they are also great for everyday, social stationery! Why not order some extras to send out to thank friends and family for birthday or Christmas presents?!

Yes - check out our samples page for more information!

As Mooks offer a very personal service, we do not have an automated ordering system. This means that that we have contact with our clients right from the word go! You can simply email your order to or if your feeling super- organised, you can fill out our order form and email or post it to us! See the ordering page for more details.

Not at all! Having been there ourselves we completely understand that, as weddings take a lot of planning, sometimes it is hard to finalise everything immediately! You can order your Save The Date cards and Invitations initially, then order Order Of Service, Place Cards and other items of your chosen range later on. Remember though...! Don’t leave final orders to the last minute! We will still need at least 4 weeks from receipt of order to delivery.

You can pay by cheque — payable to Mooks Design Limited — directly into the bank (banking details will be given along with your invoice) or by Paypal. Please note that there is a 4% surcharge for customers wishing to pay by Paypal. Please ensure that you send your payment when you place your order — this will guarantee you the swiftest possible turnaround! Nothing can be printed without full, prior payment... payment is due within 7 days of invoice.

Once we’ve produced your stationery, you'll receive a digital proof via email. We recommend that you take your time when checking your final proofs. Be thorough — don’t rush! — email your approval and back to us. If you'd prefer a paper proof instead, let us know and this can be arranged. The whole process is explained in full on our ordering page.

Unfortunately only a 50% refund will be possible if you cancel your order; this will cover any design work that has already been completed. Once your proofs have been signed and approved however, a refund will no longer be possible as your stationery will be in the process of being printed.

Postage and packing charges are £12 on all standard orders to the UK and £20 to Northern Ireland (although this may increase for larger orders). A signature will be required on delivery to provide proof of receipt. We take absolute care when sending your stationery —safe and appropriate packaging is always used.

We can deliver to Europe, USA, Canada and Australia if required. Please contact us with regards to delivery costs as these vary depending on weight and destination. All our stationery is invoiced in UK sterling and payment can be made by international bank transfer or Paypal. For more information go to our ordering page, and look for International Delivery in the Terms and Conditions section.

"...thanks for all your help with designing our invites. The quiz cards were a big hit - we ended up using them as table numbers since it was printed on the outside, and then making an announcement for everyone to open the envelope - added to the surprise! I also had a friend of mine, who is a wedding planner, ask me for your details - she is notoriously difficult to impress when it comes to weddings, but she loved our invites!." Alice, London
