Your Wedding stationery will give guests a glimpse into the mood and theme of your Special Day, so getting right is super important. We’ve put together 5 tips to getting it right!
1. Be Organised
Your save-the-dates should be sent out approx a year before the Wedding and the actual invitation should ideally be posted out 8-12 weeks prior to the Big Day. This means that the Wedding stationary should be one of the first things a Bride and Groom-to-Be organise!
2. Count Addresses Not People
This is one of the most common errors Brides make when ordering invitations – they order per person, as opposed to per address! Couples and families can all be included on the same invitation, saving you money on both printing and postage.
3. Buy Bulk
Don’t purchase your save-the-dates, invitations and thankyou cards separately; instead, order them all at once from the same supplier to ensure that all of your stationery have the same feel and theme.
4. Be Original and Keep it Personal
Customise your invitations as much as you can as this is the key to taking your stationery up a level. Use wood or acrylic materials to inject some modern style into the invites, or alternatively, design your own monogram and font to include!
5. Mail Yourself an Invite
This is another handy tip. When you post out the invitations, post one to your own address. That way, you can make sure you’ve sent them correctly, you can tell (approximately) when the rest of your guests will receive theirs AND you get to keep one of your invitations as a memory of the day.
