Today I have a post discussing the process of choosing your wedding stationery from Love Weddings. A real couple who have started up their own wedding stationery business after getting married. I found that when I first saw their stationery, specific items stood out to me the most, such as the featured image above. As a result, Love Weddings are offering Secret Wedding Blog readers a 25% discount off their stationery!
“Myself and my husband got married 3 years ago, at the time everyone was getting frustrated with us because we were so laid back and perhaps did not organise things in mumzilla’s time frames. Looking back I am so glad we took our time and did not stress over what flowers were going where or what meat we would have as a main course, we wanted to ensure we did not lose sight of the fact that this would be a monumental day because we were going to spend the rest of our lives together as husband and wife. This should be a really fun time so enjoy every minute of it and don’t sweat the small stuff because it all comes together on the day and at the end of the day it will always be magical and memorable.
Choosing your wedding stationery should not be stressful, it should be a fun thing that you and your partner do together (get involved men) plus it is the first thing that all your guests will receive from you…how exciting. Here are our Love Weddings top 5 things to take into consideration when choosing your wedding stationery.
1 – Your wedding stationery will set the tone for your day; it gives your guests their first glimpse into the kind of day you are going to have. My advice when choosing stationery would be to choose something that reflects you as a couple. We did invitations for a couple who cemented their love over their shared appreciation of music and The Beatles, they asked if we could design something that incorporated both the colour purple and The Beatles – Hey presto.
2 – No idea is silly and there is nothing that we at Love Weddings cannot do to ensure your vision comes to life. We pride ourselves on getting what is in the couples head onto paper and ensuring that the final design is exactly what they were hoping for. Receiving our couple’s feedback with how delighted they are makes our job so worthwhile.
3 – Stationery is there as a tool in order to give your guests all the information they need with regards to your day. Choose your stationery wisely, we can fit allllloooooottttt onto a small space however we are not miracle workers so if you are perhaps getting married abroad and there is a lot of information to include then choose your stationery accordingly. One of our favourite designs is The Passport however if there is information overload then we also think the website is a great and fun idea.
4 – Thinking of the bigger picture when choosing stationery can save a lot of time, effort and expense. It is far better to look at packages in which we offer as this will include most if not all stationery elements that you will need and by ordering in bulk you can often save yourself a fair whack. Not only that but having a flow to your wedding stationery looks far superior (the designer in me). The last thing you want to be doing when you are lying on a beach in the Seychelles is thinking about sorting out ‘Thank You’ cards when you return, it is definitely worthwhile doing it all at once.
5 – My final piece of advice would be to choose a company you feel comfortable with as this is often something you will work on together. Check out references on their website and always get them to send you samples of their work to ensure it is up to the standards they have promised on their site. Here at Love Weddings we love to hear from our brides and like to work closely with them to ensure they get exactly what we have promised.
