What other wedding stationery do you need?

Obviously if you can afford it, it is fantastic to have a totally co-ordinated wedding, from save the dates, invitations and RSVP’s all the way through to menus, table-plans and thank you cards, but there are ways of cutting costs if you need to. Your invitation can incorporate your RSVP details and as long as you make sure you post your invites out in plenty of time, a save the date is not necessary.

An order of the day card might seem like a luxury, but for your guests it is a real help to know exactly when things are happening. If they know they have twenty minutes while you have your photos taken with immediate family it gives them a chance to nip off and change their baby’s nappy or grab something from the car, without worrying that everyone will have gone when they get back. If you are on a tight budget this could be added as additional information within your invite along with accommodation details and gift list info.

Compiling a table plan may sound easy, but it can cause couples a great deal of work and sleepless nights to come up with the final arrangement. It is generally a difficult juggling act to keep everyone happy, but once finalised it is a beautiful artwork to have at the entrance to the dining area and can then be kept as a memento and hung on your wall at home. A great alternative which can be changed right up to the last minute are pretty escort cards to show every guest just where they need to go. Whatever you do, it is essential to provide some kind of guide that is clearly visable so that you can relax knowing that every guest will find their way to their place setting without any stress.

Less is usually more, so don’t get carried away covering every surface with (expensive) flowers, balloons and petals. This is true of the colour scheme too, accent colours look stylish – pink table clothes with pink napkins and pink favours don’t!! An eye catching centre piece with one or two menus per table, favours if you want them and co-ordinating place cards and napkins will do the trick.
