Handmade items and fabulous finds for the creative bride to be

Not all brides have dreamed of white weddings since the age of six. I certainly hadn’t. In fact the first stunned words out of my mouth when the man I loved suddenly proposed are too rude to repeat here! The first among my close friends to get engaged, and with a feminist mother who got married in flat boots, weddings were simply off my radar. But I said yes, of course, and then we had to decide how.

With a background in fashion buying I have pretty defined tastes. I love retro, natural, quirkiness and charm. I quickly discovered that my taste isn’t represented in the mass-market wedding industry - big dresses, spangles, sparkles and organza bows on chair backs are just not very me! The waste bothered me too. All that stuff dumped as landfill after a few hours’ use. Why not spend your hard-earned money on something you can take home afterwards to re-use and remind you of the joy of the day?

Then I discovered some brilliant UK wedding blogs showcasing real-life brides who had created fun and original weddings a world away from the mass market. Inspired, I designed our own invitations, planted up a box of daisies to display our seating plan, got lots of candles, bunting and ivy, and sourced ribbon and letter stamps to make sweet favours and name tags. And somewhere along the way, I got really excited about setting up an on-line boutique for brides who think like I do. I hope you enjoy your visit!

With love, Hester x

Wedding in a Teacup holds an array of handmade items and fabulous finds to help you create your own unique and beautiful wedding day. From exclusive invitations designed by us in our Brighton based studio, to classy guest books that we've searched the whole UK for, nothing shoddy or tacky or not absolutely saturated in style and gorgeousness has found its way onto this site. We aim to inspire and satisfy you and save you hours trawling the internet for that special, elusive something. Wherever possible our items are made from recycled material or are recyclable, fairtrade or made right here in the UK.

At Wedding in a Teacup, we love all the nuptial traditions - flowers and favours and confetti and first dances. But we don't think there's a right way to do it all. We see it more as a wonderful grab bag - just pick out what you want, add to it, and style it how you like!

Many wedding venues provide their own plain white table cloths, napkins and china, which make the perfect backdrop for your creative input. Bedeck the tables with our scintillating little vases holding just a few flowers; strew twinkling tea light holders in among them. Tie up napkins or cutlery with our themed cotton ribbon; string on quirkily-stamped labels for place markers. Add colour and create a lavish mood by scattering our striking favours around - table decorations for your guests to take home with them!

Our mantra is: take great pleasure in your planning and preparations, it will spill over into your wedding day and light it up. So put enjoy it all at the top of your Big List and relax! We like weddings where the best man’s speech is so rude that the mother of the groom won’t talk to him for an hour afterwards. Where the chief bridesmaid pulls the best-looking usher. Where the bride kicks off her heels and dances bare foot.

Delivery on all other personalised items will be within 2 weeks of placing your order - if you have ordered a mixture of both, they will all be sent together within two weeks.

Refunds and Exchanges

Can I return bespoke items?

Unfortunately not, as they can't be used again - but if you feel that the bespoke items you have received are faulty or not fit for purpose, please contact us immediately. To be extra sure about an invitation or RSVP card, do contact us for a sample before placing your order. You can also order a single one of our small bespoke items to consider before placing your full order.

Can I cancel my bespoke order?

Under EU Distance Selling Directive regulations, personalised goods are an exception to the normal regulations regarding cancelling orders. As bespoke orders are all hand-made especially for you, should you wish to cancel an order you must notify us, preferably by telephone, within 24 hours of placing the order. After that, we will do everything we can to cancel the order, but if the items are already made or being made then unfortunately we cannot refund you.

Can I return non-bespoke items?

All Wedding in a Teacup items that are not bespoke come with a 14 day money back guarantee. In the unlikely event that you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact us within 7 days of receiving your order for our returns information. We cannot accept returned goods that have been opened or used in any way.

How do I return my items to you?

Please see above for information on our returns policy. It is advisable that you send us your returns via recorded delivery for your own records. With the exception of faulty items or goods damaged in transit, please note that we are not responsible for return postage.
Additional policies and FAQs
Bespoke Wedding Stationery

How will you get the details for my bespoke wedding stationery?

Once you have placed your order for your stationery, we will email you asking for all the information we need. We will use the email address that you provided during checkout - so please make sure that this is correct and keep an eye out in your junk mail too - just incase! When you reply, do double check all the information you send us - ensuring that it is correct at this stage will save time during the approval process.

How soon should I place my bespoke stationery order?

Please allow at least a month in total, just to be on the safe side. Once we have received your order and details, we aim to send you a PDF proof of your bespoke invitation/RSVP card via email, within 3 working days. Once you have approved the PDF proof, your stationery will be delivered to you within two weeks. We will always keep you updated on your order.

How do I approve my PDF proof?

Once you receive your PDF proof, please thoroughly check that the layout, information, wording and spelling is all exactly as you want it. Then simply email us back to approve it, or to send us any amendments. If you send amendments, we will send a second PDF proof for your approval. Please note that, although we will check it too, it is you who is responsible for approving your PDF. Once it has been sent to print, no further amendments can be made, and Wedding in a Teacup cannot be held responsible for any mistakes found after approval.

When will my stationery be sent to print?

We will not send your stationery to print until you are completely happy with the PDF proof and have fully approved it and given us the go-ahead. Once we have received your approval, your stationery should be with you within two weeks.

Will my bespoke stationery look like it does on screen?

Colour on screen can differ from printed colour, as an on-screen image is flat and untextured. We much prefer the real thing! If you would like to receive a sample of the invitation/RSVP card that you are considering ordering, please choose this option in the dropdown menu on the product page. Shipping is free on all stationery samples, which also include a sample of our lovely complementary ribbon.

How much do your invitations/RSVP cards cost?

You can see our PDF price breakdown here. On most items, the higher the quantity ordered the lower the unit price gets.

Does your wedding stationery include envelopes?

Each invitation is supplied with an 100% recycled manila envelope which is included in the price. Our RSVP and information cards do not come with envelopes, as you can post these to your guests in the same envelope as the invitation. If an envelope is included with our stationery extras it will say it here.

Can I change the colour, typeface, design or wording of your wedding stationery?

We have lavished lots of time on our stationery designs and feel they are themed to perfection - we hope you agree! However, if you would like a particular colour to fit your wedding scheme, this may well be possible. Changing the wording is relatively easy too - you may wish to add something personal to you, or include a line for your guests' names. Whatever your ideas, do contact us to chat it through and we'll do all we can to make it work.

How many invitations should I order?

We always recommend that you allow for extra guests and the odd mistake (or spilt cup of tea!) when placing your order - 5 to 10 extra invitations should be fine. Don’t forget that you only need one invitation per household or couple - so you may only need 50 invitations for over 100 guests.

How do I make up my DIY charm invitations?

It’s very simple, and rather soothing! Have a look at our instructions here. These instructions will also be included in your order.

A note on postage...

If you are adding lots of extras in with your invitations we recommend that you check with your post office before purchasing and affixing postage, as a large letter stamp may be required.

Other Bespoke Goodies

Will I get a PDF proof for other bespoke items, such as the jam favour stickers?

No - our other bespoke items are much simpler than our invitations and RSVP cards, so we don't need to send out PDF proofs for them. You can however order most of our other bespoke items in single units - so you may like to do this before placing a whole order.

After you place your order, we will email you to ask for the information we need to get started. If your item simply requires your names and wedding date you can enter these in the box provided on the product page. Do check your details carefully - we cannot be held responsible for incorrect details.
