  1. Guest Place Settings

Now, let’s add some personal touch to your reception. Guest place settings are a delightful way to show your appreciation. They can be as simple as personalised thank-you notes or as elaborate as tiny wedding favours, making your guests feel extra special.

  1. Save The Date Cards

Planning a wedding takes time, and so does planning your guest list. Make sure your nearest and dearest can lock in your wedding date well in advance with Save the Date cards. These charming cards act as a friendly reminder to ensure your guests don’t double-book on your special day.

  1. Wedding Menus

Next up, let’s talk food! Wedding menus can add a touch of elegance to your reception tables. Besides listing your culinary delights, they serve as a visual feast for your guests. They can be the perfect combination of practicality and aesthetics, enhancing the overall experience.

  1. Envelope Stickers and Belly Bands

Envelope stickers and belly bands are like the finishing touches to your masterpiece. They’re the jewellery that complements your wedding invitations. Customise them to match your invitations, giving your stationery suite a polished and cohesive look. Presentation matters and these little details can make a big impact.

  1. Programs & Fans

If you’re hosting an outdoor wedding, consider programs that double as fans. Not only do they keep your guests cool during the ceremony, but they also provide important information about your special day. It’s all about keeping your loved ones comfortable and informed.

  1. Address Labels

Addressing envelopes by hand can be time-consuming. Opt for customised address labels to save time and add a touch of sophistication to your wedding invites. It’s the small details that can make a big difference and keep your stationery suite looking sharp.

  1. Extras to Upgrade Your Day

Now, think beyond the basics! Consider items like wedding roll-up banners to add a touch of grandeur, signage for directions to your venues, or special thank-you messages for your bridal party. It’s all about those thoughtful details that make your day uniquely yours.

Remember, this list isn’t set in stone. Your wedding stationery is a canvas for your creativity, so feel free to add or subtract elements as per your vision. Plus, many of these items can be done as fun DIY projects with a personal touch.
