Services and Proofing
Yes! You will receive a digital proof set of all printed components via email within 2 business days. You can respond to the digital proof set email with changes up to 2 times and receive up to 3 proof sets. We cannot be responsible for proofing your items for you, so be sure to check everything so that all wording is spelled correctly, addresses are correct, etc.! You will not get proofs of vellum wraps, wax seals, laser folders, or anything else that is not a printed component.
Yes! Once you receive your digital proof set by email and they’re exactly how you’d like them to be, you’ll need to email us back saying that your items are approved for printing! We will not print anything until we have received approval via email from you.
You will receive up to 3 proof sets as part of your purchase (the initial proof set plus 2 rounds of edits). If you need additional proof sets to make sure your invitation is exactly how you want it, each additional proof set is $20 each.
Yes, assembly and stuffing will be required and will vary based on the invitation design you choose.
Assembly: Assembly is anything that requires attaching the invitation to a laser folder. If you are ordering an invitation with the Elegance, Blossom, Romantic Rose, or Enchanted Heart laser folders, then you’ll need to use the glue dots we provide to glue your invitation into the laser folder (assembly offered for an additional fee).
Stuffing: Stuffing is putting together all components for each invitation set. Each printed and unprinted item (your invitation, details card, reception card, laser folder, vellum wrap, envelopes, etc.) is packaged separately so you’ll put together a full invitation set for each household. This is a fun activity for bridal parties to do together (drink wine at your own risk 😊)!
Assembly options are currently offered if you are purchasing an item with the elegance laser folder, the romantic rose trifold, or the enchanted heart trifold. If you choose to purchase assembly, we will attach the invitation into the laser folder for you. This does not include stuffing your invitation (putting all other components into a vellum wrap, laser folder, or envelope).
You can order your invitations in increments of 25.
You can order Save the Dates, Return Address Labels, Thank You Notes, Hand-pressed Wax Seals, Vellum Wraps, Laser Folders, and Envelopes separately.
Along with your invitation, we also offer RSVP sets, details cards, reception cards, and the other components listed above.
Our one-of-a-kind wax seals are all handmade just for you! Each wax seal is approximately 1”-1.25” in diameter as the thickness and shape varies due to the nature that no 2 wax seals are exactly the same. They may not be perfectly symmetrical and could have air bubbles since they are all made by hand, but that shows the beauty of them. Each wax seal has a professional-grade, double-sided adhesive applied to the back of the wax seal and will be ready for you to easily apply onto your invitations, envelopes, save the dates, thank you notes, place cards, holiday cards, and more!
Yes, you most certainly can! Just head to our ‘Envelopes’ section and order the specific envelope you’d like to order more of.
Yes, if you are not happy with your digital proofs and request a cancellation before you give approval for printing, then you will be able to cancel your order. However, a 15% restocking fee and a $25 designer fee will be deducted, and you’ll receive the remainder of the refund. You cannot cancel your order after giving approval for printing.

Save the Dates can be mailed anywhere from 6-12 months ahead of your wedding date.
We recommend ordering invitations 4-5 months before your wedding. There is a proofing process when you order, and we want to make sure you have ample time to proof your invitation. Once you receive them, you also have to assemble and/or stuff the invitations so give yourself a little leeway.
Wedding invitations should be mailed 2-3 months before your wedding date. If it’s a destination wedding, you may want to mail them 3-4 months ahead.
Guests can RSVP by mail, by email, by text/phone, or on a website. Choose your method of RSVP and that will determine which kind of component you order. If you want them to mail an RSVP card back to you, then you’ll order RSVP cards that will come with envelopes pre-addressed back to you. If you want them to RSVP by email, text, phone, or on a website, then we recommend ordering a details card where you can list how you want them to respond.
We recommend that your guests RSVP between 4-6 weeks before your wedding. You will typically have to give a count to your venue 2-3 weeks before your wedding and will need some time to contact any guests who haven’t responded to you.
Yes! You will need to use our template to fill out your guest’s information and you will see a proof of all your guest’s addresses during the proofing process. Please download our template below and you will be able to upload your template when you are ordering your invitations.
Whoever is listed on the envelope is technically who is invited. If it only lists a husband and wife, then children wouldn’t be invited. Therefore, include anyone in that household who is invited as part of the guest addressing. If a child is over 18 years of age but still lives with their parents, you can mail them their own invitation if you’d like. Most wedding invitations use salutations for guest addressing (Mr., Mrs., Miss, Dr., etc.). Here are some examples of how to list names on the mailing envelope for guest addressing:
- Mr. and Mrs. John Smith (only the husband and wife are invited)
- Mr. and Mrs. John Smith and Family (husband, wife, and children are invited)
- Mr. John Smith (only John is invited)
- Mr. John Smith and Guest (John is invited and can bring a guest)
- Olivia and John Smith (this does not use salutations, so it is less formal, only the husband and wife are invited, if you do not use salutations then list the woman’s name first)

We ship via USPS Priority Mail which takes 1-3 business days according to USPS.
We recommend waiting to buy your stamps, and this is what you should do! When you receive your order, put together a full invitation suite that includes all the components. Then take it to the post office and have it weighed and measured so that you can be sure you are putting the proper amount of postage on your envelope. Every invitation set can vary in postage depending on the components you have purchased so we cannot provide other information regarding postage. We know your invitations will be gorgeous and want your guests to receive them, so we don’t want you to have any hiccups due to improper postage!
When you go to the post office to mail your invitations, we recommend that you ask the post office to hand cancel your envelopes. This is where the post office sorts through your envelopes by hand instead of the invitations being put through a machine. Keep in mind that even though you may request hand canceling, the post office might still use a machine if they choose to. Damage done by the post office to your envelopes or invitations is not Your Perfect Invitations’ responsibility.
If you are not 100% satisfied with your order before you approve it for printing, you can easily request to cancel your original order by contacting us via email and we will process your refund. Please note: we cannot process refunds for any additional proof charges that you have incurred after your 3 complementary proofs. We can, however, process the refund for the original order you placed.
We cannot cancel your order once you approve your order for printing since products are customized and printed specifically for you. However, if you have any problems, please do let us know so we can assist you!
If you’d like to return laser folders, vellum wraps, or mailing envelopes that are defective, simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 15 days of receiving your order to receive a replacement or full refund.
We will print your items exactly as they appear on your proof set. Please contact us if you find an error.
We offer a 10% discount on re-printing for errors that were approved on proofs. Note that we do not accept returns or offer refunds for errors that you approved on your proof set.
If your printed pieces do not match the approved proof set, contact us within 10 business days. We do not offer refunds on these products, but we will re-print these specific products for you and ship them to you.
We do not currently send samples out.
