Did you know that nearly 40% of the engagements each year take place between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day? In celebration of those of you out there that are newly engaged, we’re discussing all things engagement on the Rock Paper Scissors blog this week. Today, we’re talking timelines for save the dates, invitations, and other related wedding paper items. When it comes to planning a wedding, timing can be key. Similar to picking a date and seeking out/selecting a venue, it’s important to start thinking about invitations early – that way your guests will receive their save the dates with enough notice to plan and reserve the date well in advance. Planning ahead also allows time to explore a variety of printing options and custom design elements, so that your invitation suite in unique and represents you as a couple. Check out our wedding paper timeline, which includes invitation suites, save the dates, announcements, thanks you cards, and day-of stationery and signage - which includes menus, escort cards, table numbers, bridal party gifts, signage, and more!

There are three ways to set up an appointment with RPS Weddings:Wedding, Engagements & Invitations." Congratulations on your engagement, and happy planning!
From the moment we saw this couple’s Pinterest board, we were so excited to help create the invitations & day of stationery for this Lovett Hall wedding. Their impeccable taste in colors (gold, champagne, & blush– be still our hearts), their love of the gold scalloped paper (a handmade paper from India), and their wish to incorporate hand lettering into their invitations and event sent us over the moon.
We first met Becky and Ben through Alison, event planner extraordinaire at Viva La Diva who brought the couple to RPS in search of the perfect invitation. We partnered with Alison and one of our RPS designers, Laura Joseph (head over to Paper & Honey and check out her amazing work) to create Becky & Ben’s perfectly lettered invitation.
The invitation was flat printed on a 2 ply Savoy stock, and the envelope was lined in the handmade Indian scalloped paper, with guest addresses done in lovely calligraphy by Laura. At the wedding itself, the escort cards, bar menus, dinner menus, favor tags and event signage all carried through Laura’s unique hand lettering and beautiful touches of gold, champagne, and blush. Check out some of our favorite shots of the invitations and day of stationery thanks to photography by the fabulous Jess + Nate Studios.
We’re so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of such a beautiful event (as all Viva La Diva events are) and wish Becky and Ben all of the happiness in the world!Becky & Ben!
