Begin by deciding which invitation design style will coordinate with your wedding day. Or schedule a design consultation to discuss your stationery needs and questions!
Once you're ready, select your favorite invitation design style from the Collection Shop.
Visit the Add-Ons page to choose any additional items you would like to add to your suite. Add-ons include fun extras like wax seals, envelope liners and invitation assembly. Add these to your invitation order to customize your suite even more!
ordering & design process
Next, choose the print method and paper type that compliment your wedding day style and fit your budget. You'll also decide what quantity you need to send an invitation to each household, as well as any extras for last minute guests, detail photos, and keepsakes.
order confirmation & questionnaire
Personalized proofs designed in your colors and wording will be sent to you for review. Collection suites include 2 full rounds of revisions.
Once you're happy with your proofs, you'll give your final approval via email. Nothing prints until you approve!
Your invitation suite order will be printed and inspected for perfection. Digital printing takes 6-10 business days. Premium printing takes 12-15 business days.
Your order will be carefully packaged and shipped to you!
Once you receive your invitations, now is a great time to order your day-of stationery! These day-of items can include everything from custom cocktail napkins to signature drink signs and menus - all matching your invitation suite style!
The current turnaround time is 4-6 weeks*
Once you place your order, you'll receive an online details questionnaire to gather all your invitation details. I'll work with you to perfect your stationery. Wording, colors, and minor layout adjustments can be requested.
*Please allow approximately 2 extra weeks for Letterpress or Foil printing.
Assembly adds approximately 1-2 weeks.
Design begins once you submit your details questionnaire. I will design a full proof of your wedding suite with your selected colors and add-ons. The design process takes 5 business days from the time you submit your questionnaire.
The elements of your wedding invitation will vary according to the type and style of your wedding, along with the other events of the weekend. The invitation suite below represents the typical cards and envelopes in a full invitation suite.
Your invitations will arrive in your mailbox 6-8 weeks after you place your order. If you choose letterpress or foil printing, please allow an additional 2 weeks printing time. Rush digital printing (4 weeks) is available for an additional $250.
When should you order & mail your invitations?
Please find the month of your wedding to refer to our suggested ordering & mailing timeline. Please note that these timelines are based on a mail date of 6-8 weeks prior and a production time of 6-8 weeks.

The best way to know if you love a suite is to see it in person! sample packs include samples of paper and print options, as well as a suite of your choice.
How long does the ordering process take? When can I expect my order to ship?
Your wedding invitations should be ordered about 3 - 4 months before your wedding, giving you plenty of time to stamp, seal and mail to your guests. All Collection designs take about 6-8 weeks to process (including design, revisions and printing time). Additional time is required for custom design orders (5-6 months from first point of contact to delivery), so make sure you've got plenty of time to get all the details perfect.
What type of paper do you use?
All MMFP Digital Collection suites are printed on your choice of single-ply or double-ply Eggshell paper in Pure White or Soft White. All Letterpress and Foil orders are printed on Crane's Lettra Cotton paper in your choice of single-ply or double-ply Pure White or Soft White.
Can I change the colors & fonts in a Collection design?
Yes. All colors and fonts can be changed to fit the look and theme of your wedding. I have carefully selected a wide variety of colors for you to choose from. Please see color options palette in my the Wedding Collection Guide. Fonts may be switched out as long as they are included in my Collection.
How many revisions are included in the design process?
MMFP House Collection pieces include 2 rounds of edits. Most pieces are edited to perfection using the allotted rounds, but if necessary, additional rounds of edits are $50 each. Custom Designed pieces include up to 4 rounds of edits, but I will work with you to get your design perfected as needed.
When should I send out my Save the Dates & Invitations?
Save the Dates should be sent about 6 months before your big day. Your invitations should be sent 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding date.
Do you offer rush orders?
Digitally printed orders can be rushed for an additional $250. Rushed orders will ship 3 business days following the final approval of your suite proof. Please note, letterpress and foil printing cannot be rushed due to the nature of the printing process.
How do you ship orders? What if I am local?
All orders are shipped via FedEx Ground. Once shipped, you will receive your pretty package within 3-7 business days. Shipping on all MMFP orders is a flat $50 and will require an adult signature upon delivery. If you are local, you may pick up your invitations at the MMFP Studio or delivery is available for a flat $50 charge.
What is your refund & exchange policy?
Due to the nature of the products, I cannot make exchanges or refund purchases. Some exceptions can be made. Please see my Cancellations & Refunds page for more information.
Will you edit or retouch the photo I use for my Save the Dates?
MMFP does not do any photo editing. If you are sending a photo for a Save the Date or Thank You card, please make sure it is a high quality .jpeg and that it is already edited to your satisfaction.
What are your business hours?
All client communication occurs within the hours of 10am - 5pm Monday through Friday. Studio appointments are available by request.
