Tailor made, personalised Wedding Stationery

 Welcome to To Have & To Hold Wedding Stationery

All of your wedding stationery, from the Save the Dates to Thank You cards are made to suit your theme and colour styles. We have an extensive range of pocket fold, wallet and wrap cards for you to choose from, including the traditional flat and folded cards. We can also design and make Laser Cut wedding stationery, see our Love Birds and Love Heart ranges.

We also create bespoke handmade , printed and laser cut wedding invitations. Please contact us for a quote. Name cards are all personalised and table plans can be printed 2 weeks before the big day to allow time for you to make changes. We will do our best to find cost saving opportunities {if you wish}, this usually involves combining the menus with the table names or place cards for instance – which has turned out to be a popular choice for couples.


To Have & To Hold has been running for the past 7 years, with successful growth year on year due to excellent word of mouth and favourable magazine features. We specialise in making the most gorgeous wedding stationery with a range of sophisticated and extravagant designs. Elise heads up our team and she deals with customer communication as well as overseeing and generally making all of the design work from start to finish. In busy periods she has fantastic help from Chloe – who has fantastic eye for detail. Also, Kirsty from White Oak Studio helps out with her crafty flair, we stock her beautiful handmade wooden photo blocks, which you can check out here. Elise’s Husband helps out, albeit with a little nagging – although she has to admit the company wouldn’t be running this without his support.

Placing an order for your wedding stationery

We know how exciting this is for you, but may be a little daunting as most have never done this before. Outlined below is a general idea of what happens.

First of all contact Elise at info@tohave-tohold.co.uk and she will usually email back within 24hours. In your email it’s handy to include your wedding date and number of invitations you require so that we can check the availability first before proceeding with your enquiry.

Wedding Date

Design/s you are interested in and the format/s you would like

Number of invitations/wedding stationery you require you require

Those are the main points. There will probably be a few chatty emails so Elise can get to know your scheme and confirm the design. At this point we can send you a quote for the order, this is a personalised service after all.

Once you have made your payment we can start the order process, payment is currently only taken by bank transfer for UK customers and Bank transfer or PayPal for international customers.

At this point we purchase all the stock which means colours/card cannot be changed. We will need your files or emails containing wording that we should use. We accept .doc or you can paste the wording into an email. We will then create your design. Please remember to double check all spellings, grammar and punctuation as this is something we don’t check for (although do our best to spot mistakes). It is entirely up to the client to ensure that this is correct in their proofs.

We shall send you proofs once everything is finalised, this is the last step before printing so what you see on screen is how it will be printed (disregard any white space as that will be the card colour) you are free to make as many changes as you wish.

If you have any changes please send an email detailing these – a list or bullet points is perfect. We do not accept completely new documents to paste through as the files are set up in a unique way that we only make amends to. To restart a file from scratch will cost £20 for the time it takes to do this (unless, of course, we request this from you).

Once we have made all the changes and you have confirmed you are happy for us to go to print! (Yay) It will start to feel a little more real now, but wait until you get a chance to hold them! We will now send them to the printers and it is at this point that no printed sections can be changed unless paid for. Once they are back from the printers, the magic is worked and soon your gorgeous wedding stationery will be with you.

Turn around time varies with styles and we will need at least 4 weeks from sign off to delivery. Please bear this in mind to fit in with your wedding date, especially for the on the day stationery.

Stationery orders are delivered within a set time frame, this is usually 6-8 weeks but most cases are sooner. We will let you know of any delays, but unfortunately unable to give a completion date when we take the order.
