Every elopement is unique and the stationery you send out should be specific to how you two are planning your day.
Here are a few suggestions though, if you are eloping just the two of you, send out an announcement, a love note to include your loved ones on your special day (without them attending in person), and a set of thank you cards . BUT the sky is the limit don't feel like you have to stick to the norm. Did you get a pet, buy a house, make a move, along with your elopement? Share that announcement(s) in your stationery as well. This is a great time to include a glimpse into this next chapter of your life, your whole life.

Typically we advise our couples who are having people attend their wedding/elopement in person to mail save the dates 6-8 months out, but sometimes 10-12 months out if the majority of guests are to travel by air. You can place your order a month before you need them in hand.
Once you have mailed your save the dates, you will want to send out your invitation suite about 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding date. You can place your order a month before you need them in hand. Remember to add a little bit of extra time for addressing, stuffing, stamping and mailing your pieces, we suggest an extra 2-3 weeks i.e. order a month and a half before you need them in hand.
Definitely not! Most of our couples place their save the date order, mail them, and then come back to us to start their invitation order. You can totally place the order for save the dates and invitations together, that’s fine too! Nothing wrong with crossing it all off your to-do list.
Yes! Keep your theme consistent by letting us take care of all your paper needs. After your invitations are all mailed out, now is the time to start thinking about the items you will need for the day of your wedding. We offer a variety of wedding day stationery and they can be found here.
