There’s a lot of planning involved in a wedding. Hence, you must consider every little detail if you want your special day to be what you envisioned. Part of the preparation is planning on the various wedding stationeries to use. Of course, the wedding invitation is the most popular, but it’s not the only thing to have. Below is a checklist of the wedding stationery to include in your planning.
Bridal shower/stag party invitation
The person hosting the bridal or stag party is usually the one that sends this invitation. However, modern brides and grooms often join the preparation, so if you are planning to go together with the host, you could brainstorm on the design of the invitation to make it unique, eye-catching, and something that would work with your theme if you have one.
Save the date
Couples send these cards before the formal wedding invites to give guests a heads-up about the wedding. Let them know about the date and location so they can prepare for it, especially those who may need to travel or get time off from work to attend. There is no need to put in the specific details as you can do this on the actual wedding invites.
It’s a formal invitation to your wedding. Plan what to write on the invitation and the design. Another critical thing to consider is the stationery to use since it has a significant impact on the overall feel of the event. Choose luxury wedding stationery that exudes elegance if you want a touch of class for your wedding invitations.
Include an RSVP card with your wedding invites to determine who can and cannot make it to the wedding. Add the date until when you expect to receive their reply. It will give you a better idea of the number of people to expect on your big day, thus helping you decide on the reservation for the reception.
Insert cards are not compulsory, but you may add them as you wish. There are different kinds of insert cards, which prevent information from crowding your wedding invitation. You may or may not use the same stationery on these cards, but if you want a cohesive look, you should. Some of the insert card options are the following:
- Accommodation card. If you reserved rooms for the guests, you may include accommodation cards that give the details on the hotel name and the code they could give to secure a room.
- Website card. It gives information about the wedding website.
- Map or direction card. It shows a map for the wedding venue.
- Reception card. If the reception is different from the wedding venue, this card will give details about the reception, including the time and address.
A guest book is where your guests can write their messages to you. It would be nice to look back on these messages in the future. Select the best stationery as it will be a part of your big day and the memories you will make.
Thank you cards
Attach the thank you cards to your wedding favours, showing your appreciation to the guests for being part of your wedding.
Again, you don’t need to have all these cards. Still, ensure that you choose the right stationery for the cards you decide to get, as it will play an essential role in setting the tone for your big day.
