Most people underestimate the importance of Wedding Stationery for custom wedding invitations and so often times most couples do not include it in the budget for the wedding. But, just like branding plays a great role in most top businesses, stationery does the same for weddings and even much more. It sets the tone of the wedding ceremony in a very attractive way and helps your guests satisfy that curiosity of what to expect from your special occasion. It also gives your guests a great clue about the style of event you are planning and ensures that they have additional important information at their fingertips.
Custom Wedding Invitations Can Make Your Guests Feel Extra Special
Speaking of styles, most used styles for most wedding ceremonies include the romantic style, vintage style, whimsical style, contemporary elegant and formal style, a rustic style or city chic event, a barn dance or hooley style, bohemian style, festival style and lots more. You could even invent your style according to your taste. Doesn’t matter the style you are looking at for your special day, you can express these styles in your own custom wedding invitations. Popular custom wedding invitation styles offered by PurpleTrail are Booklet Wedding Invitations, Tri-Fold Wedding Invitations, Gay Wedding Invitations, Halloween Wedding Invitations, Christmas Wedding Invitations, Elegant Wedding Invitations, Foil Wedding Invitations, Vintage Wedding Invitations, and Rustic Wedding Invitations. Trust me, there is nothing like receiving a super stylish wedding invitation with a gorgeous design that tells your love story. It gets your guests so pumped up about your wedding day they won’t think to miss it for a second.
Most folks give the impression that they can handle the custom wedding invitation design themselves so they can save money. That’s all right. Frankly speaking, you might, but unless you are a fantastic graphics designer, you will definitely end up doing a terrible job. You will maybe end up with unpleasant word document design with some clip arts. Trust me, nobody likes that. So, don’t simply think you can do all of this by yourself because it will be quite taxing, could take a lot of your time and might not even be cheaper to invest in a decent wedding stationery. So True! You want my advice, I’d say hire an expert to design and produce these items for you. With that, you are sure to have a gorgeous and organized outcome that will have your guests wowed and eager to attend.
Recall in the beginning when I said Wedding stationery offers much more than just custom wedding invitations, here I’ll explain. Depending on the scale of the wedding you are planning, there are four sets of items you’ll need wedding stationery services for. Some of these items are optional and depends on how much you want to invest. The first set is what I call “before the wedding set”, followed by the “wedding invitation set”, “the wedding day set” and last but not least, “after the wedding set”.
Before the wedding set includes items like engagement party invitations, be my bridesmaid cards (lovely gesture to your best girls around for help), hen party invitations (send a card to the hens to set the tone of the party), and save the date cards (signifies to your guests that they are invited to attend your event and should “save the date”).
The wedding invitation set includes the custom wedding invitations (most important), RSVP Cards / Response Cards / Wedding Regret / Wedding Acceptance (these cards let your guests tell you whether they are attending or not), direction information or maps (very useful for out of town guests), accommodation information (details of hotels close by for guests coming from distant places), evening invitation or a reception card (invitation to reception for guests unable to attend the wedding ceremony), wedding events itinerary insert (lets the guests know if there are other planned events prior to or following the wedding ceremony and reception), plus one options (lets your guests know if they can bring a partner along or not), dress code (tells your guests the suitable outfit for the day so they can plan ahead), and a Gift list (your guests will want to know what the gift giving etiquette is for your wedding).
The wedding day set includes an order of service or ceremony booklet, the wedding program or reception program (informs guests on how the wedding reception will unfold), seating arrangement chart or table plan (displayed at the entrance to easily show guests on arrival where they are to seat), place cards (placed on the seats to direct guests on where to sit), escort cards, table numbers or table names (placed on tables for identification, and the menu (informs the guests of the meal prepared for them).
After the wedding set includes thank you cards (sent to guests shortly after the wedding appreciating their presence and gifts), wedding announcements (used to announce to family and friends just in case the ceremony was a small one or the couple eloped), change of address cards (can be used if the bride or groom has changed their residence after the wedding).
Other items you could also add include wishing tree tags, wedding guest book, wedding favor tags, nice buffet tags or labels, thumbprint tree, signage (which can indicate drink choices, buffet choices, men’s and ladies’ rooms and basically any spot you can want to customize). If you are looking at a number of decor ideas at your wedding venue, like having a dessert table, a nice-looking bar, baskets in the bathrooms, a photo booth, a fingerprint guestbook etc. then you also need to think about suitable stationery and signage for it.
Now pause for a second and imagine all of this sets of items planned for your wedding. A bit too much? It may look a bit too much but trust me, it creates the perfect atmosphere, well organized and no worries at all. With all that planned, your guests will be so eager to attend the wedding because you have finally given them no reason not to. Now, that is what a good wedding stationery can do for you.
