If you're the type of couple who always do things their own way and it's always the two of you against the world, why not consider bespoke wedding invitations? Going bespoke gives you the ultimate in freedom. You can enjoy so much control over the designs, graphics, colours, fonts and even the card used to create your perfect wedding stationery suite. Here at Moments That Unite, we just love creating custom wedding stationery designs for couples who just have to let their individuality shine through in everything that they do. Should you decide to go for bespoke wedding invites with us, you’ll be able to choose between a whole host of different cards, envelopes, fonts, finishing touches and all sorts to help create your perfect finished product.
Bespoke wedding invitations can be your perfect option, and contrary to popular belief, the project doesn't need to cost the earth either. Like many other stationers, here at Moments That Unite, we can tailor your bespoke package to suit your budget thanks to the huge variety of options that we can provide. Read on to find out about two of what we believe are the biggest pros to opting to go bespoke.
Bespoke means that the finished product that you receive will be totally unique; just for you. Whether that is in colour scheme, fonts, graphics, arrangement or layout - you can benefit from totally free reign to create a product that is perfect for the two of you. Whilst we offer a huge range of house designs that offer something for everyone, you will have to accept that many other couples will have the same wedding stationery as you. Bespoke means it's all about the two of you and about creating something that perfectly reflects the tastes and styles of both you and your partner.
With bespoke, you can easily make use of your own images or graphics. Whether that is a cute image of the two of you, photographs of a significant place or event; the world is your oyster! This is your chance to just go for it and go all out - don't hold back! We love a challenge.
As with all the best things in life, there are a few things that you should consider before running off screaming to the hills that you're going bespoke with your wedding stationery. Read on to find out more.
Budget (although boring!) has to be an important consideration when you’re looking at your wedding stationery options. If the percentage of your wedding budget that can be allocated to wedding stationery is relatively small, bespoke is possibly not the best choice for you as costs can be quite a lot higher than shopping exclusively from a designer’s own house collections. We do offer a range of products and services that mean we can tailor a quote to you as best as we are able, but it is still an aspect that the two of you should discuss.
Bespoke wedding stationery suites usually take considerably longer to produce than in-house collections will. Bespoke designers can quite easily spend days working away on a custom design before having an initial proof ready to send to you and that’s before you take into account the time taken to make sure files are print-ready, the printing process itself and quality checking the finished product. If you’ve left ordering your wedding stationery quite late or you need a super-fast turn around, bespoke isn’t likely to be the best option for you.
Because bespoke wedding stationery tends to attract such a long production time, most designers will only take on a handful of such projects a month. It’s always best to check availability for the month you’ll need to receive your wedding stationery to make sure it’s possible.

You like the sound of working with us, and that’s awesome! We’d love to work with you too!
If this sounds like you, pop us a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas or requirements you might have and we’ll get back to you to get the ball rolling.
Chances are, when you send your initial contact over, you won’t have answers to every question we have within your email, and that’s totally okay! We’ll respond to you and make sure we have everything that we could possibly need to know about your product requirements, design ideas and turnaround requirements. At this point, we will also check that we have availability in a month that suits you. We only have availability for 6 custom design slots a month at the moment, so it’s important that you check in advance that we can meet your needs!
Once we have all the information that we could possibly need, we’ll go away and spec up your requirements. We’ll go through our own suppliers to try to get the best possible products, calculate timescales for designing, production and anything else that might come up and then quantify the maddening amounts of information with a price for you that you will then receive as part of a written quotation to your contact email address. Quotations are usually completed within 3 working days, however if we’re trying to source something specific or unique for you, this might take a little longer.
You’ve received your quotation, and you’d love to go ahead with us! That’s great news! The next step is payment. We do not always require full payment up front. If you’d rather pay in full up front, that’s great and absolutely fine by us. If this doesn’t work for you, we can instead take a 25% non-refundable deposit with the remainder of the balance due before your order goes to print. If you’d like to discuss payment options, pop as an email on email@example.com.
After payment has been organised, we’ll start work on your bespoke designs. This process may take several days on our end as we play around with design options, fonts, colours and more. As soon as we have an initial design for you, we’ll send you over digital proofs of these to see what you think! At this point, you can request any changes necessary to help us create your perfect bespoke package. If you love it and want to go ahead, just let us know!
After you’ve approved your design, no further changes can be made as we’ll get your order sent straight off to print; often within 24 hours. The printing and production process can take anything from a couple of hours to a couple of days depending on the items, cardstocks and finishes that you’ve ordered. We’ll give you an accurate estimate of the production time when you approve your designs!
After production, we carefully check our orders before sending them out to make sure they reach you in a pristine condition and are exactly as you would expect. If anything is wrong, we’ll get a new batch rushed to print as quickly as possible and let you know about the delay.
Bespoke wedding stationery really can offer the perfect opportunity to bring the personalities and styles of the two of you to a true focus point in your wedding stationery. Why not request a free, no obligation quote today? What have you got to lose?Get a Quote
