Guides to Plan Your Wedding Stationery

Oct 12, 2007
There is no doubt that you will need to plan your wedding with care. This is also true when you are planning your wedding stationery. In fact, your wedding stationery will probably include a number of items and you should not overlook the planning of it since it will be the first impression you give your guests about your wedding.

At the very beginning you need to search for different options for your wedding stationery. You can certainly do that on the internet. You can nearly find all the options and styles available. In fact this is not only for your stationery. You can virtually get nearly all the information you need for each of your wedding items. If you find the idea of online shopping comfortable, you can order your stationery directly from online shops.

Before you decide to order from online shops, you are suggested to order a sample first. This is because the photos or images you see from the online shops may be retouched and it may look better than the actual product. It will be totally a waste if you make the bulk order and you find that they are not as good or suitable as you originally think.

After you have done your research, you can set a theme of your wedding stationery based on your research results. Some couples will choose to make their wedding stationery reflect their wedding theme. This is in fact always a good idea. However, you have to bear in mind that it should be at the same time reflecting you and your spouse. If you have to select between reflecting you and your wedding, you should choose the former. Reflecting you is more important.

To personalize your wedding stationery, you can hire a graphic designer to work out the designs with you. By doing this your stationery will be more unique and special. However, this will also imply a higher budget. Similar to other wedding items, you need to take a balance between the quality and your budget. Of course sometimes you may get really good deals but it is better for you to treat such deals as cases of luck otherwise you will be disappointed.

If you are on a budget, you will try to look for cheap wedding stationery. However, you need to be careful if the offer from a company is too good to be true. They may be just dishonest companies who want to cheat couples. You may also consider the idea of printing it yourself. You will certainly save a fortune by doing that. However, as a simple economic rule, it is all about opportunity cost. You are in fact sacrificing your time when you are printing your stationery yourself.

Before making your order, you will need to prioritize the stationery items. If you are really on a budget, you can have the more important items done by a wedding stationery vendor. Then you can print the less important items yourself so that a balance between time and budget can be attained. Normally, the invitations and announcements will be the most important. You may allocate more budgets on these items. For items such as the order of services, you may consider printing yourself. You may even substitute the save-the-date cards and Thank You cards with emails.
