The importance of wedding stationery

25th March 2010
The importance of wedding stationery is often overlooked and under rated.
Pushed to the end of a long list of “Things to do”, wedding stationery can easily be forgotten until the last minute when it becomes a frantic dash to find any old standard stationery.

But why is this ? When you think about it, your wedding stationery is the first official contact you will have with your guests as the bride and groom and the design and tone of your invite can often be a strong indication to the type of wedding you are planning: traditional, contemporary, colourful, elegant, unique, fun, etc.

Here at Rosy Days we don’t under estimate the importance of wedding stationery and we don’t just limit that view to the design and colour (although in our opinion these are the most exciting bits!).

An increasing amount of couples are asking for advice on what their invites should say on the inside. The traditional text states that the bride’s parents are delighted to invite you to the wedding of their daughter etc. While still a popular choice, many couples don’t feel comfortable with this, either because they are paying for their big day themselves or because they just don’t feel it reflects who they are.

Below is a small sample of text options for wedding invites to help give an indication as to the different styles and options you might consider.

If, once you have read this blog post, you have any questions on wedding stationery, Rosy Days would be happy to help and work with you to sort out your requirements to ensure that your big day gets off to the best possible start!

At the end of the day the most important thing about your wedding stationery is that you are happy with it, happy that it reflects who you are and what you want your wedding day to be about. If your wedding stationery meets these requirements then it must be right.

Until next time may every day be a “Rosy Day“.
