Simply & elegant
Everything was perfect from invitations menus, order of the day and so much more. The communication was easy with them being miles away in Norfolk and us in Hampshire. Nothing was ever an issue if your looking for wedding stationary then look no further x

Exceptional Customer Service
Our experience with Here Comes The Bride was second to none. The attention to detail, swift communication and rapid production gave us such ease in ordering and tailoring what are also beautifully designed invitations. We can’t wait to start working on our ‘On the day’ stationary next, it really has made using HCTB again a no brainier.

Beautiful invitations
We order our wedding invitations about a month ago and did spend some time looking around. My partner found HCTB on Etsy and fell in love with them immediately. We ordered our sample which arrived quickly, I approached HCTB via email to check on speed of delivery if we were to order which they gave me a rough timescale depending on proofs, we were in a little bit of a rush as we only had 7 months to plan, once ordered the proofs came through quickly and once we confirmed we were happy, they arrived before we knew it. HCTB kept me well informed on progress and responded to my emails promptly. Everybody has commented on how beautiful the invites are and we would highly recommend them! Many many thanks for all your help and for the beautiful invites! The wedding is not until April so I have had to put today’s date in.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Make sure you carefully plan how many invites you need: * 1 Invite per household (not per person, except where single housemates are living together) * 2-3 for keepsakes (for keepsake box and if your photographer wishes to capture the invite) * 5-10 Extras/Spares (in case of increasing guest list or getting lost in post)
