Wedding Stationary Checklist

Written by: Rachel Abdallah

It seems odd to say that paper and ink can set the tone of your wedding day, but it does. Stationery is often under-rated and is such an important part of creating the perfect first impression for your wedding.

Receiving a gorgeous, colourful, and fun invitation in the post builds your guests excitement for events leading up to, and including, your BIG DAY. Whether it’s urban city chic, festival style, elegant or formal, romantic, art deco, whimsical, vintage, calligraphy, or beach; your invite gives a great idea of the event you’re planning.

Last minute rush orders or forgetting to put that extra detail into your wedding stationary is not ideal. So we have put together a checklist of wedding stationary that are must-haves, and some additional stationery pieces that are awesome, but optional.
