Wedding Stationery – Getting This Important Part of your Wedding Right
Author: Robert Paulson
Planning a wedding is not easy and aside from the location, that stunning dress you need to track down and your guest list, perhaps the biggest challenge is your wedding stationery. Your wedding stationery is not only your chance to make a first impression on your guests, it is also the item that is most often saved by guests to remember your special occasion. Below are some tips to help you when creating your wedding stationery set.
Wedding Stationery Must Have’s
• Wedding Announcements/Save the Date Cards – Sending out a wedding announcement letting your guests know of your wedding date and location is the first step in getting an idea of how many guests will be attending (Be sure to include an RSVP card with return envelope and postage). Though you want your wedding stationery to be consistent, it is sometimes a good idea to avoid excessive decoration on these initial mailings. Things like envelope liners and seals can usually be reserved for your wedding invitations. This is a good way to save a bit on your wedding stationery overall.
• Your Wedding Invitations – Being the centerpiece of your wedding stationery, your invitations is where you will likely want to spend the bulk of your wedding stationery budget and pay close attention to detail. Wedding invitations are your chance to let your guests know how formal (or informal) your event will be and are an important element in setting the overall tone for your entire wedding. As mentioned above this is also the item of wedding stationery most guests will save in order to remember your big event so take time to make sure you’re making the impression that you want. Envelope liners, envelope seals, ribbon, floral accents and multi-layered designs are a few things to consider.
• Reception Cards/Directions – These wedding stationery items should be included with your wedding invitations and though you want them to be consistent with the style of your wedding stationery, single sheet cards with little to no adornments. It is important that your directions to the wedding/reception are printed clearly. Poor printing quality to lead to maps that are hard to read and you don’t want your guests getting lost.
• Menus and Table Cards – These reception and dinner items should also match the overall feel of your wedding stationery. Table cards can usually be made with a single folded card and nothing too fancy in the way of design. Something to consider with menus is a two layer design that matches your invitations. This is an easy way to add consistency with your wedding stationery since most guests will not bring their invitations with them.
Wedding Stationery – Important Details
There are many details that you can include that can make sure your wedding stationery is as perfect as your event. Paying attention to the following suggestions can go a long way in adding additional quality and a lasting impression.
• Return Postage – Make sure you include return envelopes and postage. Making your guests pay for a stamp is poor wedding stationery etiquette and should be avoided at all costs.
• Use Calligraphy Fonts – When printing the text for your wedding stationery a calligraphy (cursive) font style is highly recommended to add elegance.
• Your Requests – If you prefer to not have children at your ceremony, make sure to let your guests know. Be as clear as you can here to avoid any confusion.
• Double Envelopes – When delivering your wedding invitations, place them, envelope and all, into a cheaper outer envelope to ensure that they are not smudged during postal delivery.
• Envelope Seals – Adding these to the envelopes of your wedding stationery add a high degree of quality for minimal extra cost. Wax seals and paper seals work equally as well here.
These are just a few things that go into the making of a quality wedding stationery set. Like most bride’s to be, I’m sure that your wedding stationery is something that is not only important to you, but something you want to make sure you get right. Keeping in mind the things above can hopefully help you to achieve this.

What do people notice at the wedding Reception first, the cake? They notice it more when the bride and groom are in front of it and surrounded by ornately decorated personalized napkins flashing the newly married couple’s initials or a line from their wedding anthem, “Let The Good Times Roll.” That small detail is attention getting enough. A half hour later is the happy couple still stuffing cake into each other’s mouths and quickly wiping away crumbs with their fingers and more personalized wedding napkins, foil stamped, embossed or monogrammed what is their choice? Plenty of them still sit, arranged around the cake and champagne glasses on both ends.
Wedding receptionist were meant to consummate the bride and grooms vows with the cutting of the cake. Personalized wedding napkins were meant to call more attention to the food, arrangement, table settings, complimentary and contrasting colors. Attention to detail is meant to provide a feast for the eye as well as the soul.

You may not need to use all of them. They are great for small and large weddings alike. Weddings are meant to celebrate love, life, and the beginning of a small promise between the two most important guests. You are constantly reminded by the arrangement of the personalized napkins of the point and purpose of the reception. You should be reminded that it was something special. You don’t want to be reminded you ran out of napkins because of an oversight on your part.

Personalized napkins will surely make a difference in how the wedding reception is celebrated. Magic moments like this don’t come along every day and with a little extra effort of personalized wedding napkins you can inexpensively enhance your wedding arrangements, color scheme, and quietly watch as something unexpected becomes unexpectedly extraordinary.
Picture your buffet, wedding cake table or bar at your reception. Are you serving cocktails, have you bothered to plan out the color scheme? Believe it or not these are considerations you will take into account before you consider and decide on the smaller things, as in how the personalized napkins for the wedding cake will be arranged, whether or not you’ll order matching cocktail or beverage napkins, coasters, toasting glasses or luncheon napkins? Believe it or not but truly, truly “remarkable” events are achieved in finer details and the right personalized wedding napkins will help your celebration make a statement better than anything else can. They can be placed near the cake, arranged around it or the buffet, in seats, table settings, just about anywhere.
There are a variety of styles and brands of personalized napkins that you can order to further enhance, uniquely celebrate your wedding reception and day filled with events. They are available in limitless sizes, shades, prints, patterns and letterings.

Trends with personalized napkins are always changing and growing. Personalized wedding napkins shaped like a bride holding her bouquet or a groom in his tuxedo have become all the rave in New York this spring. If you’re not concerned enough to have a personalized napkin tailored featuring the bride and groom on a wedding cake, there are countless other ideas you can use to create a unique presentation that will be enjoyable, memorable, and create an atmosphere where your guests will feel like they are having the time of their lives, along with the bride and groom. Maybe you’ll present personalized napkins with the bride and groom’s initials, little known facts about their lives, guest’s initials or next year’s anniversary date along side of their initials or anything that will commemorate the event and create fond memories of the wedding that was for all involved.
Remember whatever size wedding or situation you find yourself in personalized napkins can add that touch of elegance that creates a fond experience and fond memories worth far more than what you paid for them. Decide if you want the complete set of personalized wedding accessories; consider the colors, styles, prints. You may decide not to buy the swizzle sticks, coasters, and bubbles but investing in a beverage or cocktail napkin and a matching dinner or luncheon napkin only makes practical sense. It also makes plenty of sense to review what’s available and order ahead of time in case the font, printing, monograms, or colors don’t look exactly as you envisioned them. More times than not, customers are pleasantly surprised by their orders. The sky is the limit, regarding your options. Call InvitePapers.com Customer Service line for questions about anything. We’d rather you have the best experience with personalized stationery as pleasant as we can make it.

Is there a special couple in your life that you know is going to be getting married? If this describes someone who you might know, you should think about buying some wedding stationery to use throughout the entire time they’re planning the wedding. When you buy someone wedding stationery, you should remember that this is both a very practical gift as well as something that you can have fun picking out if you happen to want to get them a very creative design.
It’s a good idea to get someone some stationery if you know that they are planning an elaborate and interesting ceremony. They’ll be too busy to really concentrate on something such as the stationery; however, they’ll also probably still realize that this is a very important consideration. You will make their lives much easier if you get stationery for them to use.
Wedding invitations call for some exquisite stationery. Additionally, thank you notes are a necessity because the couple will want to thank all the guests for attending the ceremony and bringing them some presents. So, you might want to think about purchasing them both types of stationery so that all of their needs will be covered both before and after the event.
If you have any idea what kind of wedding it is going to be, the invites should match the theme or tone of the ceremony. Don’t buy informal stationery with lots of graphics and fun fonts if you know it is going to be a very traditional affair in a church or a synagogue. Conversely, if you know the event is going to be held outdoors or have a fun theme, you could pick out some stationery that has a more upbeat aesthetic.
Finally, you should keep in mind the personality of the couple when you’re picking out some invitations to give them. If they are a fun and lively pair, then you can have more creative control over what kind of stationery you choose. If they are an older couple or simply happen to have more classic taste, you should definitely get them some stationery that reflects their own sense of style.

Do you know that you need to purchase some wedding stationery in honor of your upcoming ceremony, but are worried about finding enough time with your partner to pick out the truly best option available? If so, you should consider buying your wedding stationery online rather than going to a physical retail establishment to pick it out. It is much more efficient to shop online, and because you’ll be saving so much time, you will have more time to concentrate on other aspects of planning.
When you do your shopping online, you will inevitably find lots of stationery from which to choose. There is no shortage of options when it comes to style or design, so don’t think you won’t find the perfect stationery for you and your partner if you end up shopping online as opposed to going to a store. You might even start to become overwhelmed by so many excellent alternatives.
Therefore, it might be a good idea for you to narrow down your options before you start an online search. Think about whether or not you want formal or casual stationery. You even might want very special stationery that is made out of recycled goods so that when your friends receive it, they will immediately know that you are doing everything in your capability to save the environment.
It’s also a good idea to look for whatever discounts or promotional offers that you can possibly find while you’re shopping online. In many cases, there are special deals available to online customers that are not available to customers who go out to shop in retail establishments. You might be able to save lots of money if you choose to do your shopping on the Internet.
Finally, you should make sure you are dealing with a reputable company when you’re buying things off of the Internet. Don’t buy anything from a company online unless you have read a few customer reviews and feel confident that they will not rip you off or do anything illegal with your personal information. If you have any second thoughts about an online company, it’s best to keep looking so that you can feel sure that your purchase is secure.
