Express Chapter One

If you are the organised bride who has been planning their wedding for the last 5 years then this article will be of no interest but there are a surprising amount of couple who for one reason or another need to get their invitations out quickly.  Maybe you simply just cannot wait to get the word out that you are getting married.   Many personalised wedding stationery suppliers offer an express service.  An priority service charge of around £50 usually applies and for this  you can expect an expedited service that gets you your wedding invitations within a 2 or 3 days of proof approval.  Basically, this means that you jump straight front of the production queue and your order is despatched by next day courier.  This can often save up to 2 or weeks off of standard delivery time depending on which design and supplier you go for.

The two large wedding supplier publishers in the UK (CCA Occasions and Collisons) offer an express service.  Their stationery is available in most high street department stores such as John Lewis and Debenhams.  Their express service is also available online through Olivia Samuel who, in addition to CCA and Collisons,  offer express delivery on Letter Press of Cirencester and Chapter One wedding stationery.  The Chapter One express range is available with free express service at the moment when you quote EXPRESSPURE at checkout.

Popular personalised wedding stationery suppliers Bride and Groom Direct also offer an express service although this option is not obvious until reach the checkout and does not apply to certain designs that have handmade elements.  Again 2 working days is typicals for this service and the charge is £60 on top of the price of your stationery.

Of course, if you are in a real hurry and do not mind dispensing with personalised wedding invitations then there are many off the shelf packs available from high street stores like of Marks and Spencers and John Lewis.  These are usually available in packs of 10’s and have standard wording with dotted lines to write the invitors names and guest names.   Both suppliers listed above also have print your own packs too.

The glamour of the 1920’s is all about intricate detailing in shape and materials, and what better example than this gorgeous 1920’s style Beaded Shell Bag from John Lewis.  No vintage price tag though, at £25 this is the perfect accessory to a slinky halterneck gown and long pearls for that glorious vintage look.  It has a clasp fastening and long metal chain and is shell shaped with bead detailing that emphasises the oyster shell shape.

Just the sweetest little pink glitter shoes you’re likely to find for your flower girl or young bridesmaid.  They are from John Lewis and cost between £12 and £15 and are available in sizes 8 (junior) to 2.  Don’t go buying these too far ahead though as children’s feet grow remarkably quick, leave it until a month or two before the wedding and hope they don’t have a growth spurt after you’ve bought them.  You could always buy them a size bigger so that you allow for growth, but if they are too big, a pair of insoles will help, and the elastic strap across the front will stop them flying off when the dancing starts!
