If you are getting ready for your wedding festivities and are wondering what exactly goes into wedding stationery… I have answers! Lucky for you, I teamed up with Basic Invite just in time for wedding season to kick off! They let me in on what wedding stationery you will need start to finish.
Here’s what they had to say:
After saying yes! The first step to becoming a bride is of course your bridal shower. Whether you are hosting it yourself or leaving it up to the bridesmaids, you will most definitely need bridal shower invites. Tradition goes that the mother or sister of the bride or the maid of honor hosts the shower so, it is likely you won’t be the one to pick out your bridal shower designs, but your girls know you and with Basic Invite they are in good hands. They have tons of invites for a gorgeous brunch bridal shower or a fancy dinner party shower.
Save the dates serve as the first official announcement that there is a wedding in the works. Once you pick a date and narrow down the guest list order your save the date cards and get them out! This is a great opportunity to put those engagement photos to use. Basic Invite lets you upload your own photo and then choose from more than 100 fonts for the perfect photo save the date.
The bread and butter of your wedding stationery and the most important part… the wedding invitations. With over 200 designs and 180 colors there is a style for every type of bride. The pros as Basic Invite say to start shopping for your invites as soon as your save the dates are in the mail. The more time you have to create your perfect wedding suite the better!
Basic Invite offers pocket invitations which are made to accommodate your wedding invitation and up to five enclosure cards. Enclosure cards are important and can be customized depending on your needs. Enclosure cards inform your guests on the day’s festivities and play a huge part in the organization of the day. Basic Invite has rsvp cards, accommodation cards, direction cards, registry cards, and reception cards. You can match each of your enclosure’s to your wedding invitation for a classic look and complete suite.
Wedding programs, wedding menus , and a personalized guest book are all vital pieces of stationery that are sometimes looked over. These day of essentials will take your reception above and beyond giving your guests a night to remember.
For all of your loved ones who weren’t able to make it, wedding announcements are a nice gesture to help them feel included. Wait until you get your wedding pictures back and choose your favorite to upload or try out one of Basic Invite’s foil designs - they are a gorgeous choice!
Thank you cards are the most important piece aside from the wedding invite. Your guests spend time and money supporting you and they want to feel acknowledged. Make sure to open all of your gifts in the presence of a note taker so you can write accurate and meaningful thank you notes. All of Basic Invite thank you cards come in matching designs to top off your gorgeous suite.
Basic Invite has your back for any event with stationery for all of life’s major moments. Every wedding won’t require every piece of stationery so, don’t feel overwhelmed. Decide the size of your wedding, the location, and the overall theme and go from there. Every wedding is different and every day is special. Make it yours!
