Shipping & Processing

When will I receive my items if I place my order today?

Review the tab labelled "Additional Info" on each product page. This will tell you how long the processing time is for the Wedding Decoration or Personalized Wedding Gift you are purchasing. The processing time is how long it takes the item to get through our fulfillment center before it ships. We do not include the day you purchased the item or weekends as processing days.

Once your order has gone through processing it is now into the shipping time. Once shipped, most orders will reach their destination within 2-5 business days. Shipping time depends upon which fulfillment center your decoration, accessory or gift is coming from, where you are shipping to, and the carrier used. (We ship most of our items from the east coast using UPS.)

Please note the following:

  • If an order is placed over the weekend, we treat that order as if it was place on Monday.
  • Holidays do not count as processing/shipping days.
  • If you purchase several items that are being shipped from the same fulfillment center, you need to calculate delivery off the longest processing/shipping time.
  • Some products may be shipped from different fulfillment centers and arrive to you in different packages.
