So to give you an idea of what you’ll need stationery-wise for your wedding, most couples choose to do a save the date and then, of course, your invitations and a seating plan.
Stationery is one of those things that adds that extra touch, but it doesn’t have to be over the top, so you can really keep it simple, and it will still be beautiful.
Using a service like Aura Print for your personalised wedding stationery ensures that you get the look you want. They’ll be able to give you a cohesive look running throughout your wedding, so from the moment that your guests get your save the date or your invite, they will know what to expect.
The thing about stationery is you have to remember that you want your guests to get excited about it it’s the first thing they see before your wedding. Hence, it’s essential that it comes across as professional and that it looks great.
Before you order your stationery, it’s always a smart idea to put together a list of all the things you’ll need to print for your wedding. This will help you budget and determine which pieces are essential (like your wedding invitations) and which ones you may not need.
For some guidance, we’ve put together a checklist—a guide to all the various paper elements you might need for your big day. Keep in mind, though, that this list is not meant to be exhaustive.
Save-the-dates aren’t mandatory, but if you choose to send one, it should be sent six to eight months in advance and mention the destination of your wedding, your wedding website, and that a formal invitation will follow.
You can send up destination wedding save-the-dates to a year in advance. This will result in a higher acceptance rate, and it allows your guests enough time to plan and book their travel.
The invitation should include who’s hosting the wedding, who’s getting married, the date, time, name of the venue, and location. If your reception is happening at the same place, include something like ‘dinner and dancing to follow’ and also include the attire.
Response cards are a way to collect your RSVPs, and each should include a sentence with a “reply by” date at the top or bottom of the card and checkboxes for “accepts with pleasure” and “declines with regret.”
Traditional reply cards typically leave the rest blank, while modern ones include a fill-in-the-blank for guests to write their names.
RSVP are the initials for the French words ‘répondez s’il vous plaît,’ which translates to ‘please respond’. So, if using ‘RSVP’ on your reply card, it should not be preceded by the word ‘please’.
Table & Seating Plans
With Aura Print’s seating plan designs, they allow you to customise the bride and groom names, the names of your guests, how many tables you have and much more. If you’d like to customise anything else, including adding extra information, then they offer a design service tailored just for you.
Place cards designate what table a guest will be sitting at along with the seat. They’re typically used for sit-down dinner receptions and help the venue determine which guest is getting what meal.
Generally, thank-you cards should include the gift giver’s name, what they bought, and a note of appreciation. They should be sent out within three weeks of receiving the gift.
If you want to include photos from your wedding on or within your thank-you cards, they can be sent out a little later.
