I am excited to announce our Wedding Stationery Guide is up on Rocky Mountain Bride’s website today! When Rocky Mountain Bride approached me for an interview on stationery guidelines, I was, of course, eager to help! It does not take a lot for me to want to talk stationery all day long, ha! After being in business for over 18 years, I have come to learn what works and does not work for wedding stationery.
There is a lot that goes into the creation of wedding invitations and stationery. From conceptualizing a design that speaks to you as a couple, to picking out the right papers, colors, printing methods, to getting the right wording together, and everything else in between. I understand that it is easy to get overwhelmed with where to start, how to make the next step, or to even narrow down the options.
When I meet with my clients, I make sure that I explain my recommendations and help them identify what is high on the totem pole for them. Why is this important? You should feel confident in your decision-making process and a proud sense of ownership of your invitations. Wedding invites should be an authentic and unique representation of you and your fiancé.
In the article for Rocky Mountain Bride, I cover several stationery planning topics:
There is so much more that I enjoy sharing with my clients. Ultimately, the journey for wedding stationery planning & design should be an enjoyable one. Having someone in your corner to help you understand how to maneuver it is part of the equation. Do you have questions you need help with? Put them in the comments below and I will make sure to answer them for you!
Wedding stationery - it's the pretty pieces of paper you send out to the people you want to attend your event. Right?
Of course! But, if the title of this post gives you any indication, it's also so much more.
First, wedding stationery isn’t just the invitation and RSVP card you mail to your friends and family. And second, it doesn't have to fit inside a rectangular envelope. (Or be a piece of paper, for that matter.)
In this post, we'll show you how we elevate the wedding stationery game. And how we create a comprehensive suite of products and paper goods.
Highly personal, beautiful, and informative stationery takes time, consideration, and creativity. We take the following steps to ensure that happens.
Your wedding invitation is where it all begins.
Just think about it:
It’s the first thing your guests will see and receive related to your wedding. It gives them an idea of what to expect. And it sets the overall tone and feel of your event.
With its multitude of design possibilities, your invitations can (and should!) be deeply personal - making your guests say, “That’s so them!” as they open their envelope.
But if you're like most engaged couples, you may be wondering, what exactly goes into an invitation suite?
What about the wording? Are there etiquettes or protocols to follow? How far in advance should we make them? And when do they need to be sent out?
Wonder and worry no more! Because we’re answering all of your questions in this blog post.
