Stationery is just as essential as the cake and the bouquet on your wedding day. From invitations and save the dates to place cards and programs, couples everywhere rely on stationery to help their nuptials go smoothly. Here are a few must-have pieces of stylish and functional paper products to have for your wedding day:
Wedding invitations set the tone for the theme and mood of your big day, and they’re pretty essential in ensuring that people will show up to the event. Opt for a straightforward invite with a traditional, elegant look for formal nuptials, or choose stationery with lots of bright colors and fun designs for a laid back, summery wedding. You can personalize your wedding invitations with anything from ribbon to embossers, which can help give a luxurious touch to your envelopes.
Send your flower girl or ring bearer down the aisle with a custom paper sign that reads “here comes the bride,” “happily ever after” or “has anyone seen the rings?” These signs are a fun and easy way to add some personality to your big day and build the anticipation for your walk down the aisle.
Paper banners can be used on the back of your getaway car, during your ceremony or during your reception for a special and simple way to customize your big day. Place a “Just Married” paper banner on the back of your car or drape a “Mr. and Mrs.” paper banner on the front of the head table at your reception.
Photo booth props
Photo booths have been and still are all the rage when it comes to entertaining your guests at your wedding reception. Your loved ones can take as many pictures as they would like to remember your big day. Put fun stationery in the booth that they can play around with, whether it’s a sign that says “cheers” or “congratulations,” or glasses, mustaches and hats made out of paper.
Thank you postcards
Thank you cards are essential for expressing your gratitude to all of your loved ones. Opt for a thank you postcard, which features a picture of you and your new spouse saying thank you. Many couples hold up a sign that says “thank you” or write the sentiment in the sand and use that photo for the postcard. The best part is, no envelopes are required – all you have to do is write a quick thank you, address them and send them off in the mail.
