Abigail and Ben have kindly shared with us today the whole a to z of wedding stationery, from saving the date to thank you cards…
Weddings are the perfect chance to throw your dream bash! Many couples get bogged down with typical wedding traditions; in reality the most important thing about your big day is that you celebrate all the things that make you great now that you are together! Why go for the typical wedding decor?
Your wedding invitations are the first puzzle piece of your wedding, they give your guests a snapshot into what you have planned for your wedding day.
Don’t know where to start? Here’s our stationery low down!
SAVE THE DATE CARDS
Usually postcard or greetings card style sent out prior to invitations to let everyone know when you are planning on tying the knot.
Great idea if you still need to finalise your plans but want to secure a spot in your guests’ diaries
ORDER OF SERVICE
A programme of your wedding ceremony, the order of the day and a chance to thank your wedding party in writing.
A wonderful keepsake
Here is where you let your guests know the who, what, when and where.
For a little extra we can also provide you with an e-invite – an invitation for you send via email.
Once you have said your “I do’s” you want the celebrations to go a smoothly as possible, place settings and seating plans enable all your guests to know where they need to be.
Some couples like to mix guests up to get conversation flowing for a great atmosphere.
Remind your guests which dishes they are about to feast upon with an illustrated menu card. These are always a great way to add to your table settings.
THANK YOU CARDS
After the big day we can create a thank you card to send to all that attended and contributed to your special day. Let us know and we can add a personalised message for your friends and family.
A great idea to make sure you know just how many people will be there to celebrate with you.
These can include not only names and numbers but meal choices, dietary requirements and songs that guests want to request to get them on the dance floor.
If there is anything else that you can think of that would make your day visually complete just ask us. Some examples of added extras we can create are personalised bunting and wedding favours.
We believe in great design and can’t wait to work with you to make your wedding day special!
