discover the system to organize your wedding stationary correctly

Feb 29, 2008
Wedding stationery is the one item of your wedding that must be planned ahead before anything else. You want your guests to know of your forthcoming wedding well in advance.

Your wedding invitation and accessories set the tone for your special day firmly establishing your style and taste. It is the first official message about your wedding that a guest will receive from you, so make it special. If wedding etiquette is important to you, then make a start with your wedding stationery.

Custom Stationery

Personalized stationery is a great start to making your wedding unique. It's so flexible too. You can choose the wording you want, the text color and size and most importantly the typeface.

No matter what theme you have set for your wedding, you will surely be able to customize your stationery to compliment the tone. Wedding invitations and accessories can be bought in various styles such as classic, contemporary, floral, embossed, layered and religious.

Choose a Theme

The theme of your stationery should coincide with the overall theme of your wedding. For example, if you are having a garden wedding then you may choose to have a floral print on your stationery items.

To help blend the theme of your wedding into your wedding stationery, you can use accessories such as hearts, ribbons, rings and which doves for example. These will also blend in with your bridesmaid dresses.

Your Stationery

Do you know how many items of stationery there are? Without a doubt your invitations are the most important, but you can accompany the invitations with other stationery items such as:-

Wedding Invitations

Programs

Announcements

Engagement Announcements & Invitations

Save-the-Date Cards

Rehearsal Dinner Invitations

Bridal Shower Invitations

Wedding Accessories (menu cards, thank you notes etc..)

Plan Ahead

Your wedding invitation is the first official message about your wedding and your guests need to know about their invite in plenty of time. Here is a checklist to help you plan ahead and be organized:-

1. Check, check and check again all the wording on your invitations. Then ask a friend to check, check, check too!

2. Once your venue, date and time of your wedding has been confirmed, you can then order your invitations. Expert wedding planners say to order these about three to six months before the day;

3. To calculate the number of invitations to order remember to count one invitation per single guest, couple and family;

4. Once you have the number of invitations to order, you should then add on a further 25. This is to equate for keepsake invitations and for any last minute guests. The same goes for ordering extra envelopes - you may make an address mistake;

5. Most established wedding planners agree that you should plan to mail your invitations six weeks before the wedding. This gives the guests plenty of time to respond;

6. Make sure you have one completely assembled invitation weighed at the post office to determine the correct postage.

Summary

Wedding stationery is very important. It let's your guests know the theme you have set for your wedding - the overall image you want to portray. Also, don't forget to plan ahead!
