Having fun with paper, wedding stationary ideas will have people chatting about it for years.
Your wedding stationary can be a great way of making a statement, certain guests will expect a style from you. Colour is great, but also lace and bows are very elegant.
Should it be made of recycled paper? How many will you need? What will you need? The list goes on. You should get in touch with a stationary expert, it would be suggested as soon as you have booked the venue, and photographer, so you can then all start planning what you have in mind. Your expert will then show you many different designs, ideas you could have to set your mind thinking about that special day that you are arranging.
Not Just Invitations
When should you send out your save the date cards? It is suggested at 12 months before the date, so guests can plan their year.
There are many items to consider when putting together your stationary section of planning your wedding. Engagement party invites, Bridesmaids invite cards, Hen party invites, save the date cards, including a map and directions, and accommodation, evening invites, even confetti cones.
When you’re having your stationary printed you need to consider a wedding day itinerary, order of service, table plan, place cards, table names/numbers, and a menu for the big day as well as thank you cards to send out afterwards. It’s not just for invitations, if you have everything done at the same time you can keep the same theme running through all of your wedding stationary. Other possible items could be a personalised guest book, food signage, favour tags etc.
There are so many different things to consider. Do you need them all? Are they all necessary, or will they just set the day off perfectly, the way you had always dreamed it would be.
If you order a box of confetti leave it in the wedding car, for the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen to get after the ceremony, so you can then have it given out to your guests for when you emerge from the Church or Ceremony building.
