When it comes to wedding stationery, in my opinion, it’s just as important as the dress. The stationery you choose, sets the theme for your whole day, months before the guests arrive. The moment the postage goes on your invites, and they hit mail boxes your day is official and everyone is excited for the opportunity to attend. Everything from the paper, the design, the layout, and the presentation will let your guest know what kind of day it will be.
Having something casual, a flat piece, no layers with a fun and quirky image is great. Going formal? Think about a layered piece, speciality paper or pocket-fold with inserts. Whatever the theme, whatever the budget, there is something out there for everyone.
Choosing the right stationery for your big day can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be with professional help. Not sure what the different between linen, laid and smooth is when it comes to paper is only the first boulder you have to get over, when it comes to stationery. Your options may seem endless.
When thinking about stationery, be sure to find a professional to talk to, one that can show you paper samples, printed samples and help you though the process. Ordering on large on-line stationery websites might sound great, and might cost less, but it could leave you lost, confused, and with hundreds of dollars worth of invites you just aren’t happy with.
Lost when it comes to the design? Don’t be afraid to look online for inspiration. When you find a few that you are happy with, bring them to your stationer to make the process smoother. They will take your inspiration, and create something custom just for you.
Happy stationery shopping, it really is a fun process when you have the right tools.
