Stationary & InvitesWedding Stationery - A Brief Discussion
The wedding invitations may probably one of the things you need to consider when you begin your wedding planning work. In fact, you should not consider the invitation only. There are a lot more to consider. You should try to consider all the related items as a whole. By doing that you will be able to get a unified set of stationery.
You may wonder what items you will need to consider when you are considering your wedding stationery. In fact, the answer varies. You may need different combinations of stationery in different situations. For example, you may not need the save the date cards if you are planning to inform your friends about your wedding via email. However, you may still need them if you want them to mail you back. As a result, you need to make your decision based on your own situation. However, it is still very important for you to know some of the common items you need to consider so that you can make sure that you will not miss anything.
The save the date card is the first item you will need to consider. You are using the save the date card to inform your guests your wedding date. It is extremely important if you are planning to have a destination wedding. This is because your guests may need to spend some time to arrange things such as air tickets. Of course you will also need it if you are getting married in Christmas. This is because you need to inform your guests in advance about your big day so that they will not go on a vacation during that period. To this end you will need to send the cards out at least half year before your wedding. As mentioned, you may choose to inform your guests via email. In this case you will be sending the email about half year before. And the save the date note will not be needed.
The invitation is probably the most important part of your stationery. It is the main card which actually invites your guests. As a result you will allocate most budget of your stationery to the invitation. You will need to send the invitation at least two months before your big day.
You may also send a respond card along with your invitation. Your guests will use the card to reply you if they will attend or not. Of course it is not a must to have a respond card nowadays. You may ask your guests to reply you via email. This will probably be more convenient for both your guests and you.
You will also need a thank you card. You will write some notes on the cards to thank your guests. Normally, the design of the thank you card will be similar to your invitation so that they will become a complete set.
Some other items you may need to consider are the place cards and menu. You will need the place card so that your guests will know where to sit when they arrive your reception hall. Regarding the menu, your caterer may also provide you with it. However, it you would like to make the design of it similar to your other items, you may still need to order them separately.
