It’s Wedding Season!


Summer is a popular season for weddings, with beautiful weather creating the perfect backdrop for ceremonies. Here’s the ultimate guide to choosing your perfect wedding stationery, providing a preview of what to expect and setting the tone for this lifetime celebration!

1- Needs Assessment: Start by defining your essential stationery items. Consider:

• Save the dates • Wedding invitations • Wedding RSVP cards and return envelopes • Wedding information cards (ex; venue maps and wedding itineraries) • Bridal shower invitations • Ceremony programs • Wedding menus • Reception seating chart • Reception place cards • Table numbers • Thank you cards. Your choices should align with your budget, priorities, and the scale of your wedding events, such as engagement parties or bridal showers.

2- Style and Theme: Your stationery should reflect the overall theme and style of your wedding and most of all your personality. Take inspiration from your chosen colors, venue, or any specific motifs you’re incorporating into your decor. Cohesion across all stationery elements – from invitations to thank you cards – is essential and will create a polished look for your wedding.

3- Budget Planning: Allocate your budget wisely for stationery expenses. Costs can vary widely depending on factors like design complexity, printing techniques, and quantity. Prioritize elements that are most important to you, whether it’s custom designs, premium paper stock, or advanced printing techniques, such as embossing or foiling.

4- Paper vs. Digital Options: Decide whether traditional paper invitations or modern digital alternatives best suit your needs. Paper invites offer a timeless elegance but can be more costly due to printing and postage expenses. Digital invitations are eco-friendly, cost-effective, and offer convenient RSVP tracking, but may lack the tactile appeal of physical cards.

5- Timeline Management: Plan your stationery timeline carefully to ensure everything is ready in time for your wedding day. Begin the process several months in advance, especially if you’re opting for custom designs or intricate details. Allow ample time for design consultations, proofing, production, and mailing. Be sure to factor in any additional time needed for international guests or destination weddings.

By following these steps, you can navigate the process of choosing and creating your wedding stationery with confidence and ease. Your wedding stationery becomes more than just paper and ink – it becomes a tangible expression of your journey together. Have a look at our Wedding Design Essentials package.
