Your printed wedding invitations are a critical element on your big day as they will give your guests all the important information they need.
Assuming you are not just window shopping let us be the first to congratulate you on your big day.

This is where Banana Print can be your wedding stationery printing wingman. We pride ourselves on supplying high quality wedding invitation printing with fast turnaround times and excellent customer care. To help you order the best personalised wedding invitations online we have have a few answers to the most common questions we get asked:
When designing your wedding stationery what information should I have on the invite?
Getting creative with you wedding invitation design can feel good but sadly sometimes when you get creative so much you forget to include some of the basic information that you should have printed on it. Sounds silly right? Well to make sure your guests aren't wondering about the fundamentals like where the wedding is or who it is tying the knot use the checklist below. This is by no means everything but it is the crucial ones.
Who. Include both of your names and also any parents names in full if they are being included.
What. Make it obvious that this is a wedding. You don't want guests arriving in swimwear and flip flops thinking it's a summer BBQ.
When. Be clear and precise with the time and date.
Where. This is self explanatory. Include both the wedding venue and the reception venue.
RSVP. Make it clear when guests need to reply by so it gives you enough time for the arrangements, find out more about this below.
When should we send out our personalised wedding invitations?
Usually, your wedding invitation printing goes out between six to ten weeks before the wedding date. This allows your guests enough time to clear their schedules and make the appropriate travel arrangements if they don't live in the same town as your wedding. If it's a destination wedding, you should allow more time and send them out at least 12 weeks ahead of big day so your guests can book time off work.
When Should I Send My Evening Invitations?
We recommend sending these at the same time as the main day time wedding invitations to avoid any confusion and this will also make it easier for you to keep track of your list. Keeping good record of who is invited to each and consider sending additional invites if some guests can't attend (as long as you send your invitations early enough). Top Tip – keep good records!
How Should We Collect The RSVP's?
Some wedding etiquette guru's say that wedding RSVPs are far too important to use any system other than that personal handwritten response through the post. Times are changing and knowing the most important part of this is to make it easy for your guests to say yes you may need to embrace modern times. You can use a wedding website which uses a form, a Facebook private group, an email address or a mobile number for texts. Having said this, there is something special about receiving those RSVPs through the letterbox. :)
How Long Should We Give For The RSVPs Deadline?
Ideally make the RSVP date three to four weeks before your wedding date to allow enough time for you to get a final head count. This will give you enough time to let the caterer know the final numbers and to finalize your seating tables. You will no doubt get some guests who will still not have responded by your deadline, this gives more than enough time to give them a quick call/email to get that all important yes or no..
How Many invitations Do I Need?
You will need one invitation printed per couple or household. Remember when ordering you will require some spares and keepsakes for yourselves so always tend to over order compared to how many you actually need as this will also allow for any errors you make.
Should I Proof Read?
100% Yes! And not only yourself, we would also recommend getting 2 other independent people to check too. It's so easy to make a spelling error with your wedding invitation design and the worst part about it is it's not that obvious to notice the error if it was you who wrote it. Those few extra minutes this takes could save you days and extra cost later.
Whose Names Should Be Added To The Invitations?
In the olden days it was only the bride's parents' names that were listed at the top of the invitation, so something like 'Mr & Mrs Barry Jones request the pleasure of the company of…'. Over time this has changed and now can be either one or both parents or the bride and groom themselves. In other words, it's up to you and any of the above will come as no shock to your potential guests.
Is It Rude To State A Dress Code On The Invite?
In short, no. This may seem an obvious answer initially as it is after all your big day but majority of guests prefer this as it removes the guesswork out of what they should wear. The easiest way to get your message across is to include a dress code somewhere on the invite or reception card. Keeping it short and sweet will work best so something like, "Black tie," "something bright", "cocktail attire" or "casual attire" are all acceptable. Another way is to direct your guests to your wedding website (if you have one), this way you can go into more detail about the dress code in a more informal way without having to worry about design space.
Do Invites Have To Include Guest (or plus-one) When It's Only For One Person?
No you don't have to include this. If a wedding guest isn't married or in a serious relationship it's more than acceptable to invite them on their own. Nearly all guests will understand that without the words "and Guest" on the printed wedding invitation it means they are only invited on their own. Your family and friends should be able to appreciate that you're having a small wedding and totally understand your reasoning behind this decision. If a guest feels strongly about not being able to bring a new partner or friend with them they will nearly always reach out to you and you can then make an individual decision on each case.
When Will I Receive My Order?
Your Wedding Invitations order will be dispatched within 2 working days and then sent with a next day delivery courier. For example if you ordered before midnight on Monday your order would be printed and dispatched on Wednesday and delivered on Thursday.
How much is delivery?
So that we can keep our individual printing prices low but our delivery quality high, we charge £4.95 for each complete order to be delivered, we use a fully tracked 24hr delivery courier for this service. Some companies inflate the price of their products and then advertise "free delivery" where in reality, they include delivery in the price which means, you are paying delivery per item instead of per order.
What Happens With My Delivery If I Order With A Next Day Delivery Product?
When you order another printed product which has a 24hr dispatch this will be held back to be delivered with your wedding invitation order. If you wish to have your 24hr product sooner please make 2 seperate orders.
