Wedding stationery starts with save the date cards and includes invitations, orders of service, and thank you cards. Table planners, place cards, table numbers or names and even menus often come under the term wedding stationery as many will include card or paper that co-ordinates with invitations and other wedding stationery.
Personalised wedding invitations and orders of service will be printed with your names and dates as required and often to a chosen design of matching stationery. Some couples like to have caricatures drawn of them in comical situations while others prefer a more formal, classic style.
Handmade wedding stationery is a lovely new trend that has been about for centuries and seen a real comeback recently. It’s a way of creating all your stationery yourself to ensure it is absolutely unique and in your own personal style. Many brides ask their bridesmaids to help them make their invitations or table planners and have a lot of fun doing so. It can save money and help you all bond over a shared project, making DIY wedding stationery a fun activity for a daytime hen party.
There’s an array of wedding stationery accessories available at Confetti, from plain and patterned cards with matching envelopes to ribbons, charms and trims. Dried flowers can be added, the options are endless. Make sure your wording is double-checked before printing large quantities of cards as once they have been printed you will not be able to change them. Some stationery may be kept as a memento for future generations to see so it can be lovely to feature a favourite photograph on the front or inside with some beautiful wording.
If you are not having your stationery printed or you are just having parts of it printed, you may want to use calligraphy to add a touch of elegance to the style.
