I really thought it was just Wedding invitations and thank you cards, but oh no! There is so much more, the wedding stationery can be tailored to your theme or style of wedding. It sets the tone for the overall wedding, as colour and style come to thought. It will also open the palette of colour choice for bridesmaids dresses, groomsmen attire, flowers from bridal bouquets and groomsmen’s pinholes to ceremony and reception decor and etiquette. The stationery will show a theme to the invited guests something personalised in writing from you, which will capture and hold a memory of endearment. With so much thought given to the words, wedding stationery can be a wonderful guide to the proceedings for the day. So as mentioned a full range of wedding stationery can consist of Invitations, Cards, Boards, Notes, Menus, Programmes, Books and Signage. The array of online options for your Wedding stationery is 100% fantastic ,if your budget is catered for and allows you to have a bit of flair. There’s so many ideas, its limitless to only your style and theme.
Give yourself time to look over whats online, wedding prep in facebook groups, pinterest and the big world wide web, scrapbooks, other places to search would be countless wedding magazines, craft stores or talking to your local printer maybe with negotiations a package can be sorted with a mix of Wedding stationery to suit your Wedding theme.
Options of layouts, fonts, colours and styles are all so so considered. The actual wording says a lot about how the invitation/card reads. It also gives the invitee dress etiquette required for the Wedding day, for instance, dress code is a biggie, rocking up to a beach ceremony in stilettos and a fascinator could end up being a little gritty to say the least. Knowing the location of the ceremony and whether the reception will follow on at the same location can really help your guests, especially when all wedding stationery is themed and styled the same, to me its a lovely extension of Wedding detailing. Placement of words on your Wedding stationery can give the invitee a lot of information as to what to prepare for.
Heres to the DIYers, making your own wedding stationery, gosh! the options are endless, bear in mind with so much to plan, it can be possibly very time-consuming. Making sure each and every stationery card and Invitation looks exactly the same, with the same wording and level of flair and character is as the same as the next invitation or card albeit apart from the invitees names. this is where family/friends can aid in the of preparing for the big Day.
Nowadays the option to inform guests online gives the couple’ another choice and of course the paper stationery has been the way to deliver posted Invitations. It’s an exciting time as an invitee to a wedding, the online or paper invitation emailed or posted to you is an exciting time and one to look forward to.
Wedding Stationery can be made with character and flair or maybe even a little fun, this infuses excitement can help with getting the guest to RSVP sooner rather than later.
Thats big positive, as chasing RSVPs before due date while trying to sort a million other details for the Wedding can be exhausting and frustrating. Counteract the exhausting and frustrating with maybe the invitees were a little busy at the time of remembering to RSVP :))
Now with the venue booked and confirmed, a theme chosen can start to come together, something special which personalises you both implemented into the Wedding Stationery, whether the theme be traditional, romantic, modern, rustic, backyard etc… so the stationery really can set the style tone of the occasion. Adding a touch of fun to your stationery whether in the font, the wording, colour and style, will definitely give the guests a feeling of excitement and something to look forward to.
After all Weddings are a pleasure and even better if you’re invited.
A lot of the Wedding stationery will be noticed at the reception around the guest tables mingling with the table decorations, plating/ cutlery and glassware.
No name cards placed on guest tables, can be a unneeded pile up of guests wanting to take a seat, as the confusion of wanting to sit with family or friends not seen in awhile, leaves table spaces empty and possibly food served and untouched with guests not actually eating the served/catered meals.
Looking at wedding stationery in an objective way opens up an understanding for flow and thoughtfulness throughout the day’s celebrations and in new ways, it’s a way to meet new people and make new family connections.
The little details that capture the moment, guests love to remember the little details of a Wedding Day.
