Let's start with basics - what is Wedding Stationery?

That will be all of the paper goods for your wedding. From the save-the-date's and invitations, rsvp-s, through the menus, name cards and programs to details, order of the day and thank you notes.

What is On The Day Stationery then?

As one might expect on-the-day stationery refers to the wedding day paper goods - programs, menus, place cards, timeline cards etc. These serve as a form of communicating with your guests - this is where you'll be seating, this is what you'll eat, this is when the ceremony will happen... etc., etc.

While I love a proper set of save-the-date’s followed by formal invitations, rsvp cards and all the paper goods on the day, sometimes a full stationery set is not going to work - be that because of time (a bespoke set designed for you takes weeks to develop and produce), money or paper waste concerns (tough I personally religiously collect all wedding stationery as a beautiful keepsake).

Whatever your reason is not to send paper save-the-dates and invitations, you still can (and should!) enjoy beautiful on-the-day stationery.

Your menus, place cards, programs, event maps - all these not only serve a very important purpose (information) but can also play a key role in your event design. On-the-day stationery can add color, texture, fun and meaning to the table scape.

Pro tip:

Invest in the services of a good stationery designer. While invitations serve as a wonderful introduction to what your guests can expect on your wedding day, the on-the-day stationery is a fantastic tool to add personal details to the table/ event design.

Your very own monogram? Yes, please!

A meaningful motif that’s special to the two of you? Yes, yes, yes!

What to keep in mind? Time!

Not only are the best designers quickly booked, the process of developing a bespoke on-the-day stationery set takes weeks. From initial mood boards, through project(s) and revision(s), to proof reading, printing and shipping to either your venue or your planner - all this can take even up to 10+ weeks!
