If you’re anything like us, you love all things pretty when it comes to stationery products — or anything really. And when it comes to weddings, stationery details really play an important role! I mean, it is the first thing your guests will see in relation to your wedding theme and sets the tone for what’s to come. But most of all, it’s an invitation and announcement all packed into one little envelope so you bet first impressions count!
Under the CBA umbrella, there are lots of local stationery brands that do incredible design work for couples in our city! While this is true, make sure you have a clear understanding of what your style is before choosing a designer. Choosing a brand who has a similar style to your own will make the design process a lot smoother.
So, to kickstart your inspiration board, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite stationery designs from our very own CBA members along with some tips for each stationery item. Dare to be inspired now!
After settling on an invitation design, make sure you’ve included your wedding date, time and place, the reception venue and timings, parent’s names/name of hosts as well as the full names of the bride and groom (including middle names).
Place Cards & Table Numbers
From the calligraphy to the colours, place cards and table numbers should reflect the style you originally choose for your wedding invitations.
Now onto the most important part – the food! Your menu should bring together all your wedding theme aesthetics as well as be easily legible so that guests know what to expect from their dish. Usually, guests will order before of the wedding so this menu detail acts as a little refresher on what’s being prepared.
