The Importance of On The Day Wedding Stationery

Your wedding stationery is a key part of your wedding décor! Your wedding stationery sets the initial tone for your wedding and plays a very important part in your wedding style and design. On the day wedding stationery brings your wedding day to life, bringing all those small touches together. Your wedding stationery should reflect your overall vision and style. The moment your guests open their beautiful wedding invitation, the tone has been set from this initial first impression. Don’t you agree that there’s no better feeling than opening a wedding invitation and that burst of initial excitement? But there is so much more to wedding stationery than just the invite. And you might be questioning if you actually need on the day wedding stationery at all. 

So, what is on the day wedding stationery? In summary, any pretty paper that your guests will see or feel on your wedding day. From your table plan to place cards, table numbers or table names, menu and any signage- even your guestbook. 


Wedding Table Plan

A table plan is a key part of on the day wedding stationery as this shows and directs guests where to be seated for your wedding breakfast. Guests will simply find their names and table name or table number. Many couples get creative with naming their wedding tables, from their favourite cities or holidays, favourite restaurants and even their favourite songs. 

Table plans are traditionally placed on easels but the latest wedding trends have showcased more unique ideas. These trends include creating a table plan on mirrors or a seating chart with paint effects. If you’re hosting a modern and contemporary wedding, then perhaps opt for an escort card table with table plan cards instead of a traditional table plan.

Wedding Table Stationery 

It’s time to style your wedding tables with beautiful stationery to match your colour palette. Each wedding table will require a table number or table name. This is to ensure guests can quickly and smoothly find their wedding seat. 

Place cards are used for guests to find their designated seat on their table. Some couples who are looking to host a more informal and relaxed affair will let guests sit anywhere on that specific wedding table. 

Place cards can be used as personalised wedding favours and as a keepsake for guests. Our Natural Agate Wedding Favours and Circular Perspex Name Tags double up as a favour as well as a place card, and each one is created with beautiful hand calligraphy detail. A perfect option if you are looking to achieve a unique look for your wedding table. 

 

Wedding Signage

Wedding Signage includes your welcome sign, cake signature, bar signs, or any signs that direct guests throughout your wedding day. Bar signs are very popular and work very well if you are incorporating a signature cocktail. 

 On the day wedding stationery is an essential part of your overall wedding design and style. Consistency of design and style is key to ensure your wedding stationery complements your wedding vision and matches your colour palette to perfection.   

Where possible aim to book your on the day wedding stationery design in advance with your wedding stationer. Even if you don’t have all the final details, it’s best to get the work scheduled in advance. At Millie Stone, we highly recommend ordering your on the day wedding stationery at least 2 months in advance of your wedding day. This is to ensure there are no postage delays and you can relax having one thing ticked off your wedding planning list.
