4 tips for creating perfect wedding stationery

What to consider when designing wedding invites and stationery

It’s one of the most important days of your life. You want everything to be perfect. But as you’re probably finding out, there’s a ton of work involved in getting everything just right! It’s the little things that can make the biggest difference. Getting your wedding stationery right can set the perfect tone right from the off. Here are our top tips for creating perfect wedding stationery:

1) Meet the design team in person

While many companies supply wedding stationery online, a good designer will meet with you to create completely bespoke designs, ensuring you receive a truly personalised product and experience. Mistakes can be made over the phone, so a face-to-face meeting to discuss your needs will eliminate this risk. You can also call on their expertise about what works, and more importantly what doesn’t!

2) Think about themes before meeting the designer…

As your wedding stationery will be bespoke to you, it may be a good idea to think of what you want, before meeting the designer. Consider your wedding’s colour scheme, style and theme. Some couples like to base the wedding around a shared interest – wedding stationery can be a lovely way of complementing the main theme.


3) Decide what wedding stationery you require

While it would be ideal to have every item of wedding stationery, sometimes your budget just does not allow it. Wedding stationery covers a whole range of printed materials. Save the date cards, wedding invitations, RSVP cards, menus, order of service, table plans, place cards, thank you cards – the list can seem endless!

Consider your budget when deciding what you want. Remember, the advantage of using one design company is that all your printed material will be consistent, and there may be pricing benefits too.

4) Check the proof. Then recheck again…

A typo on your wedding stationery can ruin the whole thing, adding stress that you just don’t need! Your printer should provide you with proofs prior to printing. Check them and re-check them for spelling and grammatical errors. Pay special attention to names and dates. Getting these wrong can be especially embarrassing.
