Your Custom Wedding Invitation Process

October 14, 2022

Let’s talk about what the wedding invitation process looks like step-by-step with me!

Step-by-Step Wedding Invitation Process

Step 1 – Contact TAM

Explore my website, blog, and get a good idea of the styles offered and what will be available to you. Once you have an idea of what you’re looking for (or even if you don’t), get in touch through the contact page or send an email directly to info@tamphotoco.com! Congratulations! At this point you’ve officially started your own wedding invitation process which is a HUGE step.

Step 2 – Custom Quote

At this point, we’ll start to discuss the details of your collection, and any finishing touches you want. Pinterest is a great place to get ideas! Don’t hesitate to ask any questions during this point of the process and don’t hold any details about your wedding day back – theme, colors, style, ideas, etc. Once we’ve figured out all the specifics and quantities required, I’ll send over a personalized quote.

Step 3 – Confirm Your Booking

Once you’ve had a chance to look over your detailed quote and are confident we’ve included all the finishes and details you want, I’ll send an invoice for that amount. A design deposit of $35 is required and once that has been received I’ll send over a questionnaire to get all the required information about your wedding day to go on the Invitation Suite. No work will be started until the design deposit has been received. 

Step 4 – Designing and Proofs

At this point, once I’ve received the design deposit and questionnaire, I’ll get to work customizing your invitations! This is my favorite part and where we really get to tell your story. Once that’s ready, a PDF proof will be sent to you for approval. Please check it very carefully for spelling, colors, and dates. Two rounds of proofs are included with the design fee so make sure everything is perfect and that you love it. Once we’ve finished any final changes, a final PDF proof will be sent to you for sign off. 

Step 5 – Production & Printing

Once you’ve approved the final proof, I’ll send an invoice for the remaining payment due. After this payment has been received, the printing and production starts! I’ll be checking on everything every step of the way to make sure it is all looking perfect, and then add any finishing touches you decide on (like wax seals, twine, etc.) Once everything is ready, I’ll assemble your invitations to get them ready to send. Unless otherwise requested, your invitations will arrive to you fully assembled in the envelopes. 

Step 6 – Delivery!

Get excited! Once everything is ready, your invitations will be carefully packaged and sent directly to you. If you are local to Salt Lake City, pickup is also an option. 

And there you have it!!

Your step-by-step guide to getting custom, hand-made wedding invitations delivered to your door. This whole process generally takes 3-6 weeks depending on the size of your order. If you are in a rush though, communicate that with me and we can see if a rush-order is possible.

Don’t wait to reach out! The earlier the better.
