Much like branding is to a business, stationery sets the tone for your wedding and helps guests know what to expect from your special day. It’s the first look into your wedding style and colour palette and ensures that guests have important information at their fingertips. We love these tips offered by Letter Lane Design Studio below.
THEY ARE THE FIRST GLIMPSE OF YOUR WEDDING THAT YOUR GUESTS WILL BE DELIGHTED TO FIND IN THEIR MAILBOX
It’s slim pickin’s out there for “good” snail mail these days. More often than not, mailboxes are full of junk mail and bills. After pulling that pile of junk out of your mailbox, take a second and think about how ecstatic you would be to find a gorgeously addressed envelope with a beautiful invitation inside, personalized just for you… wouldn’t you be thrilled? That’s how your guests will feel, and they will be even more excited for the big day to come.
YOUR WEDDING INVITATIONS REFLECT YOU AND YOUR FIANCE AS A COUPLE
This is a big one, and you really don’t want to go the cheapest route here, because it would reflect… well, not so great on you and your fiance. I’ll just say it – e-vites are tacky, and printable wedding invitations rarely work out well for brides trying to DIY or go the cheapest route. Your best bet is to work with a professional wedding stationery designer that can get to know you and your fiance on a personal level, and craft a design that is unique to the both of you. They have experience in creating a cohesive design, choosing colors/styles, and they have an extensive knowledge of the different printing methods (so you don’t have to worry about nasty at-home printer screw-ups), as well as taking care of the assembly! Working with someone who knows what their doing and really cares about your wedding invitations has soooo many benefits, and they can help create those beautiful keepsake invitations we were talking about that you’ll want to cherish forever 🙂
