A GUIDE TO YOUR WEDDING STATIONERY
Having recently brought out a new line of stunning wedding stationery, we’re eager to flaunt these new styles and give you an insight into how we would approach some of the very first design decisions of your wedding day.
Wedding stationery can seem daunting and unfamiliar. What colour scheme should I go for? Are these colours in line with my theme? How formal should the invitation be? How many should I order? These are the questions that flood everyone’s mind when planning their wedding, but we’re here to provide the information you need and support you along the way.
We have an abundance of themes and styles to choose from when making the initial decisions of your wedding stationery. From traditional styling with classic calligraphy and rose wax seals, to a more modernised approach with stylised fonts and gold foil accents – we have a gorgeous range to choose from.
When choosing your design, we encourage you to take not only your wedding theme into account, but also your venue, the décor styling you’ve had your eye on (visit our Instagram: @supernovaweddingdesign for inspo), the time of year you’re getting married and the bridal flowers you’ve been dreaming of. You could create a link to your wedding stationery with any one of these prominent features from your day. Yes, there should be consistency throughout your wedding, but this can be achieved in more ways than one.
So, the first thing you need to address is your invitation. There are certain formalities and traditions surrounding wedding invitations that some may consider out-dated, but others find incredibly important. These decisions are up to you and your partner and we encourage you to do whatever feels right for your special day. Traditionally, however, the bride’s name would appear before that of the groom. Additionally, if parents are funding/hosting the wedding, it is considered good etiquette to list their names first on the invite. Our stationery brochure contains lots of examples of how to approach the wording with clarity and style
We highly recommend getting your invites out three to six months before your wedding date. The sooner you get your RSVPs (this can be done traditionally with a letter or via a personal website), the sooner you can get final numbers sent to your venue and suppliers (us!). Additionally, you’re going to want to get a head start on the table plan. Start with post-it notes (one per guest) on a large sheet of paper and roughly draw out the tables. This will make your life infinitely easier if you need to make changes in the lead up to your wedding.
Your stationery can include designs for your invitation, RSVP card, details card, welcome sign, table plan, order of service, menu, name places and table numbers. You can order as little or as much from this list as you feel is necessary. When ordering your invitations, remember you will usually be sending them out to households rather than individuals – so make sure you get your numbers right for your quote!
