Finding the Perfect Wedding Stationery

Planning a wedding is both an exciting and stressful event in one’s life. There are lots of things and details to consider, like the location, who to invite, invitations, wedding theme and motif, the suits and dresses, food and, of course, the budget.
One wedding essential is the stationery to be used. Your wedding stationery will be used in the following:

* Invitations. Different invitations will be needed for the
wedding day, rehearsals, photo shoot and other
wedding-related activities;
* Save the date;
* RSVP or reply cards;
* Wedding program;
* Reception cards;
* Menu;
* Escort/place card;
* Table cards;
* Signs and labels to be used at the venue and reception;
* Direction or map cards;
* Inserts for other information like weekend events;
* Wedding favors; and
* Thank you notes.

The use of nice and coordinated stationery for the different activities related to your wedding will bring the whole event together. It will also give your guests more idea about what to expect on or what to wear for the event.

Preparing a budget for wedding is very important. An unplanned wedding might cost you dearer, therefore you need to prepare a budget for each and every cost to be incurred. Average wedding cost in UK is £27,500. One could bring down the cost by using UK based website DealVoucherz!! This is a one stop destination to get vouchers, coupons, and free delivery all over UK. A BBC study suggests wedding cost could be brought down to as low as £23,500 by using combination of various such vouchers sites. Good luck for the preparation.

In choosing your perfect wedding stationery, try to consider a few important things, such as your wedding theme and motif, colour, paper texture, prints and patterns, shapes, embellishments and budget. Try visiting online stores that specialise in stationeries, and check out their products so you will have plenty of ideas for your own stationery. Some stores offer personalised and handmade stationeries and other wedding items.

Your stationery should reflect your wedding theme, motif and colour. For example, if you are having a beach wedding, you might want to include the colours and patterns of the sand, the ocean, sea creatures or the palm trees. You might also want to throw in some sea-related shapes and embellishments.

Font types and colour should match the affair. Black fonts are usually used for formal occasions. However, if you plan on having a casual and fun wedding, you may choose from a variety of font colours that go along with your stationery. Just make sure that your wordings and texts are readable and easy on the eyes.

If you are having a destination wedding, more information should be given to your guests. These could be added as inserts to your invitations. For instance, maps, directions, travel information and a little introduction about the wedding place will constitute a nice set of invitation inserts.

Sending your invitations ahead of time is very important. Sending them around two months before the big day will give your guests more time to prepare and make necessary arrangements at work and at home. More time is needed for family and friends from another state or country.

Although the budget for your wedding stationery is not as big as the gowns or the food, still it is worth a slice of the budget pie. If you are working with a stationer, ask him or her about options in the choice of paper, printing and envelops. You might want to splurge on some quality paper and save on printing, or the other way around.
