Your wedding stationery is the first thing your guests will see and acts as a little teaser of what to expect from your wedding day – which is why many couples find it difficult to choose their stationery, especially with a whole wedding world of options out there.
Knowing where to start is half the battle, you’ll need top advice that will take you from the engagement announcements to the thank-you notes…
What’s the stationery theme
If you send out chic monochrome invitations and then decide on a vibrant, fairytale princess theme, it may seem weird to your guests. Talk to each other and make sure you’re both happy and completely sure about what kind of a wedding you want – once those save the dates go out, it’s harder to go back, especially if you want your stationery to be consistent across the board.
Pick your stationery colours
Once you have an overall theme, your wedding colour scheme is the next important decision on your list. It’s a matter of personal taste but if you’re very stuck, try looking at different colour palettes for inspiration and ideas about which colours go together. Remember, the colour palette you choose will be echoed across your whole wedding, so choose wisely!
What stationery do you want?
There are so many types of wedding stationery to choose from but not always the easiest decision to make. Whether you want your wedding stationery made personally for you or you would like to buy from an existing range. Your wedding theme can help dictate the style of your wedding stationery, so it’s good to go to a stationer armed with a few ideas.
Choose your words carefully
The level of formality in your wedding invitations sets the tone for the rest of your wedding. This usually is one of the easiest decisions as couples are either set on a very traditional wedding, or they have a more laid-back approach.
Have some stationery fun
Choosing your stationery can be the trickiest part of planning as it forces you to make the big decisions – but with the right stationer, and a fantastic vision, it can also be one of the most fun parts of the process.
I loved that you suggested looking at different color palettes for inspiration and to get ideas about which colors go together when choosing stationery. My husband and I are planning to renew our vows in November as we celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. I am interested in giving our monogrammed note cards to our loved ones that will attend the event so I can express my gratitude in a nice way. Your tips will surely be helpful.
