Choosing your wedding stationery is such an exciting time, as it gives your family and friends the look and feel of what your wedding will be like. So before your wedding you’ll need a range of different cards for different purposes.
Save the Date Cards
Perfect for sending guests advanced notice of your wedding, especially if you are getting married abroad, or inviting people from afar. Save the dates are usually sent out between 8 and 12 months before your wedding day and only usually contain an approximate date and the location of the wedding.
Your wedding invitations are the crucial set to the stationery scene as they represent your special day the most, with its colours, theme and style. Wedding invitations can vary in terms of what they include; our invitations are very flexible and we have a package to suit all budgets whether you are a DIY Bride or are looking for something more boutique & made to measure.
Guest Information, Wishing Well & Gift Registry Cards
We recommend adding an information card with your wedding invitation to further inform your guests on things like how to get to your venue, accommodation options, gift preferences, or specific diets.
Take away the awkward conversations of asking money for your honeymoon contributions, or your future house deposit and use a poem card to say it. They will add a lovely touch, as you’ll phrase it nicely in a couple of verses – perfect for including along with your wedding invitations.
