Welcome back! In case you missed it, a few weeks ago we shared the first post in our Wedding Wednesday series all about how to ask your bridesmaids and today we're back to focus in on how to plan your party! Planning your wedding is your chance to really let your personality as a soon-to-be-married couple shine. This day is going to be all about YOU and we are here to help make your vision come to life! 

The easiest way to stay on schedule and remain organized throughout the wedding planning process is to plan ahead. Knocking out your list of to-do's early will not only save you stress as your date approaches, but it will also ensure you have plenty of time to order your custom Moon and Lola party décor. 

Today on the blog we're rounding up our favorite custom products you can order for your wedding and the timeframe in which you'll want to place your order so you can be sure to meet each and every deadline. Enjoy!


Acrylic Wedding Invitations


 Moon and Lola Traditional Wedding Invitations Moon and Lola Traditional Wedding Invitation Template




 Moon and Lola Modern Acrylic Custom Wedding Invitations Moon and Lola Modern Custom Acrylic Wedding Invitation Template



Production Time: Three Weeks

Our custom acrylic wedding invitations are the perfect alternative to the paper invites most couples choose to send. We love that they're not only a keepsake for your loved ones to remember the date, but they're also a way to make your guests feel extra special. Depending on your personal style, you can choose from a traditional font or a modern font. According to The Knot, you'll want to send out your invites 6-8 weeks before the big day. That means order your invites about three months out to ensure they'll arrive in time to be mailed out. You can purchase envelopes for your invites here.

Moon and Lola - Cheers Wedding Cake Topper



Production Time: One Week

These days wedding cakes are made in all shapes, sizes, flavors, and styles. Once you and your fiancé make the trip to your local bakery to decide on what your cake design will be, you're ready to begin dreaming of how you'll top your cake. Our custom acrylic cake toppers are available in a handful of different designs, colors, and heights so you'll be sure to find the perfect match and fit for your cake. You can incorporate your new married last name with the "Mr. and Mrs. _____" cake topper, keep it simple with the "Cheers" cake topper, personalize it with a script or block monogram topper, or add a touch of southern charm with our MLxxEM woven or interlocking monogram cake topper. There are SO many to choose from! We recommend ordering your cake topper a month away from your wedding date and keeping it in a safe place leading up to the big day - it will be fragile!





Moon and Lola - "Cheers" Tabletop Sign


Moon and Lola - Custom Acrylic Wedding Table Numbers


Production Time: Two Weeks

As you enter the final stages of planning your reception layout and seating chart you might realize one thing - filling the "empty space" can be challenging! Don't worry, we are here to help with our selection of custom wedding signage. Your guests will want to know where to go to sign the guestbook and drop off gifts, what they're being served during cocktail hour, what your wedding hashtag is, and what table they'll be sitting at. We've got a sign for each of these needs and more! Since the production time for most of these pieces is two weeks, we recommend ordering these at least a month before the big day. That way you'll have plenty of time to do a seating chart mock up before it's showtime.



We hope this blog post was helpful in giving you inspiration on how to make your wedding really represent YOU and your vision for the day. If you do decide to use Moon and Lola for any aspect of your wedding planning process you'll definitely want to check to see if you're eligible for our exclusive bridal discount here.
