The Cube by Electrolux

The Cube by Electrolux is described as the ultimate dining experience.  It now resides in London on the roof of the Royal Festival Hall until 1st January 2013.

The chef's table seats just 18 guests and is designed for you to watch your meal being prepared by a Michelin starred chef.  On Sunday, and having time off from producing handmade wedding invitations, I was one of the lucky 18 people to eat there. Chef, Daniel Clifford from Midsummer House in Cambridge produced a meal that I will never forget....pure heaven on a plate!

If you are after something unusual and exemplary - what an amazing venue it would make for a small intimate wedding. The setting and the calibre of the food are so special that your guests would undoubtedly leave very impressed.

When should we make the deadline for wedding rsvps?

Make your RSVP date 2 to 3 weeks before the wedding date.

This will allow enough time for your to get all your answers back from your guests and leave 1 week to finalize your table plan.

Coordinating with your handmade wedding invitations, our RSVP reply postcard has been designed to easily be posted back to the host.  There is a place for guests to write their name/s, any dietary information, return stamp position and host's address on the reverse side.

How soon should I order my wedding invitations?

We think, the sooner is definitely better.  

When ordering your handmade wedding invitations, it might be best to decide when you want them to go out to your guests and work backwards.

Things to consider -

2-3 weeks proof and print time.
1-5 business days shipping time.
How many days for your to hand address your invites.
1-5 days for guests to receive them once mailed.

These are all practical things to think about giving yourself at least 4 months prior to your wedding date as a general time frame.
