This time it’s personal

Written by    Last updated: June 6, 2006

Personalised stationery is becoming hugely popular, and is a great way of putting your own stamp on your wedding.

The range of personalised stationery available is vast, and you’re sure to find a style that suits your wedding perfectly. You can also add your own special touch by writing names on envelopes in coloured or silver ink and sprinkling a little metallic confetti inside.

Benefits of personalised stationery

  • you don’t have to make your own ‐‐ it’s easy to order and all the work is done for you
  • you’ll be able to choose your favourite design and font, creating a personal style
  • you can mix and match ‐‐ you could have personalised invitations, for example, but create your own place cards
  • a broad selection of designs is on offer, enabling you to choose something that suits your wedding perfectly
  • you can incorporate photography in the design.

Custom‐made stationery

You might like to commission a stationery designer to make your own personalised stationery, but remember that it will almost certainly take longer to deliver than pre‐printed items. To give yourself plenty of time, book in your first consultation with a designer about four or five months before your wedding.

Prices will, of course, be higher than for mass produced stationery, but by how much depends on the amount of work involved, the quality of the paper used and the number of items ordered. Make sure you negotiate a price and fix a deadline at the very beginning to avoid any unpleasant surprises.

Bear in mind that invitations need to be sent out at least eight weeks before the big day.
