Stationery Essentials for your Wedding!

by | Nov 12, 2019 | Bridal

You’ve selected your perfect venue, an exquisite gown and beautiful flowers! The next item on your list needs to be stationery. Stationery you ask? We understand that paper sounds boring, but we’re here to tell you why these three items are must haves…

FIRST: Paper Invitations are the gold standard for any wedding. And, sending a wedding invite via email truly is a major blunder. Your invitation doesn’t need to be gold engraved lettering, but it does need to look professional and error free. People may not remember exactly what your paper invitation looks like in years to come, but they will notice if it’s classic and easy to read.  The invitation you do select will depend largely on your budget, but traditional is always a bargain. Most local stationers have entry-level products that are actually very economical. But even more important is the stationer’s etiquette expertise; it is always complimentary and will ensure there are no embarrassing typos or mistakes. The professional guidance of a local stationery shop is worth every penny!  You will never regret using a pro!

       SECOND: Escort Cards and Place Cards are needed if you are having a meal served at your reception. Escort Cards actually lead your guest to their assigned table while place cards indicate their specific seat at that table. Even if you are having a small intimate affair, a buffet service or open seating, escort cards are highly suggested to guarantee your guests feel special because a seat at a table was reserved in their honor.

THIRD: Thank you notes are the final essential item you need when ordering your invitations. It’s completely unacceptable to email or text thank you notes to your wedding guests. A short hand written note is a sign of graciousness. Thank you notes are small in size for a reason! Only a few short sentences mentioning your gratitude is sufficient and appreciated by the gift giver.

Weddings are wonderful! But, since most brides have minimal experience with this memorable day, it’s so important to rely on the expertise of your local stationer to guide you from making any embarrassing mistakes.
