When you’ve found the perfect place to get married, you need to decide how long your guest list should be. Then you can get busy sending out your invitations. If you’re still trying to decide which stationery you need for your wedding, read on for hints and tips about the stationery every wedding will need.
Essential Wedding Stationery:
As well as invitations, you are going to need the following:
- Wedding dinner/lunch/breakfast Menus.
- Place cards.
- Wedding programs (containing the order of service presented in a book format).
Invitations are going to be the first aspect of your wedding day your guests have the chance to appreciate. For this reason, while choosing your design aim to hint at what is to come. For example, if you are planning a formal, traditional occasion create this mood with the invitation design. Consider your wedding colour palate and incorporate this throughout your stationery. With themed weddings, you are going to want to make sure that your wedding theme is reflected in all your wedding stationery designs.
The finer details of your wedding stationary can allow you to be as creative as you dare. If your wedding is going to be a casual event being held on the beach, you can either use bright beach colours or opt for a seashell or nautical theme. Choose a pretty motif to appear in the invitations, menus, place cards and wedding programs. For those planning a chic, sophisticated black-tie event consider using monochrome or stylish grey and white. You may prefer to match your stationery to the decor at your chosen wedding venue.
Although wedding stationery is available through a variety of different outlets online, this is going to be a more expensive option than making your own. There are many different software programs available to download for free. These make designing and printing all your own personalised wedding stationery easy. Try a selection out before deciding which software suits your needs best.
After giving your guests a taste of what’s to come with your personally customized invitations, remember to include any relevant information. For example, you will want to tell everyone what dress code they should be following. You guests will also want maps along with any parking instructions at the venue.
An ideal location for Melbourne wedding receptions is the historic Ascot House. Choose to wow all your guests with the majestic Grand Ballroom. Alternatively, opt for entertaining the wedding party in the smaller, Chandelier room. With a long history of hosting weddings, this venue is second to none.
