Our top tips for choosing your wedding stationery!
When it comes to choosing the perfect stationery suite for your own big day, we recommend keeping the following tips in mind:
- Don’t forget that your stationery and signage will be key to creating a consistent look, so make sure you have defined your overall wedding vision first before moving forward with stationery selections. This will ensure you choose the perfect design to complement your wedding styling from beginning to end!
- Make sure you book your stationery artist in advance to allow them enough time to create, print, and post your work, especially if you need anything custom-designed. You can refer to our 12-month wedding planning timeline to stay on track with booking suppliers!
- When it comes to the actual wording of your save-the-dates and invitations, it’s important to ensure you have the right information covered! Our guide to wedding invitation etiquette is a great place to start if you’re feeling stuck on exactly what to (and what not to!) include.
It’s safe to say we’ve spent many hours on social media swooning over statement stationery, from elegant calligraphy to pastel watercolours and quirky graphics.
