Vanilla Hayes 2018-2019 Wedding Invitation Collection

We are so excited to introduce our first collection of pre-designed wedding stationery. With two invitation designs to choose from, a choice of card, seasonal colour palettes and optional add-ons you can order to suit your personal style and your budget.

Simple, elegant and on-trend, our 2018/2019 collection has been carefully curated to complement a range of wedding styles. Each invite is customised with your names and details of your special day, but because the design work has already been done we can proof, print and ship your order to you in record time.

Wedding Stationery


So you’re planning your big day? Congratulations! No doubt you’re eager to get started on what seems like an endless to-do list and stationery is a great place to start. Once you have confirmed your date and venue you are all set to begin planning your wedding stationery to set the tone and theme for your special day.

We offer professional digital printing along with other specialty methods including foil, letterpress and laser cutting. Invitations are typically sent out around 3-4 months before the wedding, with RSVPs expected back 6-8 weeks out. Save the Dates are a great idea if you have a number of guests that will need to make travel or accommodation arrangements, giving them plenty of advance notice.

We're big believers in the little details and how they can really make a big impact at any event by putting your personality, sentimentality and flair on show for a treasured occasion. Once the invitations are sent, we can also help with ceremony and reception details such as place cards, seating plans, signage, menus and any other paper goods you crave.
