Wedding Invitation & Stationery Guide - An Interview with Rocky Mountain Bride

May 02, 2021


Lucky Onion Wedding Invitations and Stationery Guide

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:


  • When to send out Save the Dates
  • When to send the Invites
  • Invitation Etiquette
  • Addressing Envelopes
  • Thank You Notes Do’s and Don’ts

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!

The Price of Wedding Stationery: Pre-Designed vs. Custom

May 02, 2022

You’re engaged - congrats! And overall, the wedding planning is going well. But you have also have to admit, you’ve had a few sleepless nights thinking about some things. Perhaps, one of them being stationery. 

You know you need it. It’s how you’ll tell your guests the need-to-know details of your wedding. But you also want your stationery to go beyond successfully relaying the information. And instead, to set the tone for the entire weekend in a highly-personalized way.

After all, it’s the first “peek” your guests will have into your wedding.

But where do you even start? What does that kind of stationery look like? And what about the wording? Wouldn’t it be easier to pick out something pre-designed and call it a day? 

Is custom stationery really where you should be focusing your attention, energy, and budget?!

First, do yourself a favor and take a slow, deep breath.

Then, keep reading! Because I’m answering your questions and showing you why custom stationery is, in fact, worth every penny.
