I had the pleasure of getting my wedding invitations made by The Design Bar, and I couldn't be happier with the service and communication provided. Tess took the time to understand my vision and worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail was perfect. I am grateful for their dedication and attention to detail, and I highly recommend their services to anyone in need of beautifully crafted invitations and bonbonniere. Thank you for helping to make my wedding day so special!

From the first moment I contacted The Design Bar, I knew I was in good hands. The team was extremely easy to deal with, responsive and professional. They listened carefully to my needs and provided great design suggestions that perfectly captured my vision. When the invitations arrived, I was blown away by the quality and beauty of the final product. The attention to detail was impeccable and I received so many compliments from my guests on how stunning the invitations were. Overall, I could not be happier with my experience with The Design Bar and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for top-notch design and printing services.

We’re over 60. Do we need to invite all aunts and uncles of deceased parents even if we’re not close?

I am very close to my 90-year-old aunt, who was my late uncle's wife and want to invite her to our small wedding dinner/reception. I have three other aunts and one uncle, all in their 90s, who live over an hour away. Would it be rude not to invite them all, even if we’re not that close? If so, will I need to add a plus one (or two for spouses) since they don’t drive and would need a ride?

The Design Bar

When it comes to wedding guest lists, it's important to consider various factors, including family dynamics, personal relationships, and practical considerations. While there are no strict rules dictating whom you must invite, etiquette suggests that it is thoughtful to extend invitations to close family members, especially if you have a good relationship with them.

Given that you are very close to your 90-year-old aunt, who was your late uncle's wife, it would be considerate to invite her to your small wedding dinner/reception. As for your other aunts and uncle who live over an hour away and with whom you may not be as close, it is ultimately up to you to decide whether to extend invitations.

If you feel it would be meaningful to include them, you could consider inviting them as well. Regarding the plus ones for spouses who may require transportation, you can make arrangements to provide transportation for them to ensure their attendance.

Remember, the size and nature of your wedding also play a role in determining the guest list. If you are having a small, intimate affair, it is generally understood that not all extended family members may be included.

The decision should be based on your comfort level and the dynamics of your family relationships. It's always a good idea to have open and honest communication with your family members about your plans to ensure clarity and understanding.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, and I hope your special day is filled with joy and love!

Can you assist with the messaging/wording on our wedding stationery?

We are not very good at this sort of thing. When we order our invitations, can you assist us with what we say?

The Design Bar

Firstly, Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

We understand that not everyone is comfortable with crafting the perfect wording, which is why we offer personalized consultations to discuss your specific needs and preferences. Our team of experts is dedicated to making the process as easy and stress-free as possible for you.

Rest assured, we will work closely with you to ensure that your stationery reflects your unique style and personality. From choosing the right words to selecting the perfect font and colour scheme, we are here to help every step of the way.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

Apart from the invite itself what else goes in the envelope?

Hi! I'd love a list of everything that I'd need to include in the envelopes to my guests; not just the actual paper invite. Do people still send RSVP cards? Do guests actually send them back?

The Design Bar

Firstly, Congratulations on your Wedding!

Traditionally, invitation envelopes would contain the main invitation card and an RSVP card with a pre-stamped envelope for guests to send back their response. However, in today's digital age, many couples are opting for online RSVPs using QR codes or website links, which can be more convenient for both the hosts and guests.

In addition to the main invitation and RSVP, you may also want to consider including a separate card called "Finer Details" or "Details Card" that can provide additional information such as the location, dress code, parking information, and any other important details that your guests need to know.

Other items that you might want to include in your invitation envelope could be an accommodation card for out-of-town guests or a map or directions card.

As for whether guests still send back RSVP cards, it really depends on the individual couple and their preferences. Some couples still prefer the traditional RSVP card method, while others opt for online RSVPs. However, it's always a good idea to provide your guests with clear instructions on how to RSVP, whether it's through a physical card or online method.

Remember, creating your wedding invitations should be a fun and enjoyable experience, not a source of stress. Take your time and enjoy the process of designing and customising your invitations to reflect your personal style and vision, so that you can focus on what really matters – celebrating your love and commitment with your family and friends.
