Wedding Ideas: Stationery and Invites
Handing out beautiful save the dates and invitations for your guests is a sign of what’s to come for the wedding day.
Once there was a time when invites were the only protocol for weddings, but now with people's lives being chock full of busy days, you have to give your guests as much warning as possible to make sure they book your wedding day into their diaries. That's where save the dates come in! A simple card with your wedding date on would suffice, but why not take the opportunity to tease your guests with a hint of what to expect on the day.
When it comes to planning your wedding day, there are so many details to consider - all of them special! One of our favourite wedding themes are the throwbacks - those days which draw on fabulous eras from the past! Weddings mixed with a vintage twist can be heavenly and are definitely noteworthy when it comes to choosing your theme!
One of the most frequently asked questions we get at Guides for Brides is: "what do I put on my wedding invitations?" Often, this is a point of contention! Officially, there are no rules when it comes to your wedding stationery, as couples increasingly move away from traditional wedding etiquette in favour of unique wedding stationery. As a starting point though, we've tackled the age-old question of wedding invitation etiquette by taking a look at the time-honoured formalities...
These days, it's the personal touches which are everything. Thankfully, customisation is a watchword these days and you can put your mark on almost everything! At Guides for Brides, we adore independents and small suppliers of the craft trade - and bespoke stationery has a real flair. Truly made with love, you can work closely with a designer to provide gorgeous wedding stationery which'll strike the perfect note with your guests.
Wedding stationery is central to your wedding theme and can often set the scene for the entire day. From save the dates to invitations - there are numerous components to your stationery and many brides choose to keep a continuous theme throughout. There are so many amazing ideas and Pinterest offers a good hub for inspiration. Check out these 5 unique ideas that we can't get enough of.
