Who else loves that feeling of receiving a beautiful wedding invitation through the post? Oh, the excitement. It’s all about that feeling! That feeling is the very start of your guest experience.
Your wedding stationery is a sneak peek into your wedding day. Your wedding invitation is the very first impression, so it’s important to make this a wow moment for your guests. After all, those first impressions really do count.
Your wedding guests will admire your paper goods, colours, textures and take note of all the small details. Many of your wedding guests will keep and admire your wedding stationery as a memento of your special day.
Not only do you want your wedding stationery to be utterly beautiful, personal to you as a couple, you also want to wow your guests and make your wedding stationery memorable. In today’s blog post I’m sharing my top tips on how to make your wedding invitation suite more memorable.
Share Key Information
There’s no question about it; your wedding invitations are there to serve a purpose. It’s entirely up to you how much information you want to share. You can add lots of small details or keep information to a minimum, a great option if you want to keep guests surprised throughout your wedding day. However, guests do need to know the most important information. As a bare minimum, this should include your wedding date, wedding venue and arrival time. It’s important to be as clear and concise as possible with any information.
Small Luxury Touches
Add some luxury touches to your wedding invitation suite that will simply wow your guests. Those small touches really do make all the difference. Here at Millie Stone, I specialise in luxury wedding stationery design and where possible always encourage my wedding planning couples to pick some little extras. These luxury touches include beautiful foiling, coloured or metallic wax seals, handwritten or printed envelopes, lined envelopes, vellum and gilt edging. Other extras such as duplexing is a great option to add a touch of luxury as this is an extra thick card.
Work with your wedding stationer to create a bespoke wedding stationery design. Opt for a personalised design that is truly unique to you. It’s a wonderful process to get creative, have fun and most importantly create something that’s different and unique to you. Alternatively, if you love a standard wedding invitation suite, but want to make it unique, discuss what options are available. Could you add those small luxury touches, change the font, or the colour palette? The options are endless.
We are huge fans of adding personalised touches to your wedding stationery. Consider creating a bespoke monogram of your initials or hand-calligraphy your names. Bespoke monograms are incredibly elegant and luxe. It’s a simple way to add a sense of luxury to your wedding stationery design. The best thing about hand-calligraphy is that it can be written on any texture; paper, card, acrylic sheets, vellum and much more.
For couples looking to create that ultimate WOW factor, this point is for you! Create a bespoke illustration that will really impress your wedding guests. Have you thought about creating a photo illustration of you as a couple? A venue illustration is a wonderful way to showcase your wedding venue.
These are just a few ways of how to make your wedding stationery more special and memorable than ever! Do get in touch and book your consultation call to discuss your wedding stationery in more detail. I love nothing more than hearing from brides and grooms-to-be!
