Wedding Stationary

Wedding stationary is what sets the tone of your wedding.  It is the first taste of what your special day and events leading up to the wedding will be like.  Not only will they provide necessary information to your guests, but the stationary will give them an idea of what to expect.  In turn, the guests will be able to figure out the appropriate attire to wear, the level of formality of the event, and what the bride and groom’s personalities are like… if they do not already know.  Having your save the dates, shower invitations, wedding invitations, and thank you cards coordinate is key.  The fonts used, colors, and patterns or designs should work together. 

 Once you have chosen the venues where your different events will be held, then you will be able to start designing your stationary.  It should be a reflection of you and your fiancés personalities as well as fitting the type of celebrations you will be having.  For an example, my cousin had a winter wedding in upstate New York at a country club.  The building was a grand stone building with large fireplaces and elegant walkways lined with enormous trees.  The main theme of her stationary was a leafless tree with many branches, which mimicked the trees at her venue. Her invitations were made of wood.  The lettering was craved into the wood and they were light weight and beautifully done.  She carried this tree theme throughout the wedding all the way to the thank you cards.  The special touch that stood out to me was on all of the stationary and other décor that was seen after the ceremony.  The trees were no longer bare and had two buds on them to represent them now being a couple.  So Cute!  There are many ways to create unique and personal wedding stationary.  You could use custom printed ribbons for a speacial touch.  If you love glamour try spicing up your invites with crystals or little brooches.
