It may only be one day, but your wedding day will likely be one of the most important in your relationship. As you take the next big step as a couple, it’s your opportunity to celebrate your love and unity with your closest friends and family. No pressure, right? With that being said, we’re sure that you want every detail to be perfect and a true representation of you and your S.O. That’s why it’s so valuable to have personalized touches from the beginning of wedding planning to the moment you send your thank you notes.
After you’ve said “yes” and posted an envy-worthy Insta pic of your brand new bling, it’s time to get planning, set a date and book your venue. While it seems like a daunting task, it can be fun to let your creativity and personality shine through different elements of your wedding! Start with a wedding planning checklist to be sure and not miss a single thing.
A fabulous way to not only stay organized but to also set the tone of your wedding style is through a wedding website. There are numerous sites to choose from, but one of our favorites is Zola. Zola offers a free, all-in-one wedding planning suite where you can share every detail through your wedding website, create and share your registry, and manage your guest list. While you don’t want to go overboard, we’d recommend adding a personal touch with a couple quick stories about your relationship—maybe a funny one about how you met or even a link to a proposal video.
Now that you've set up your wedding website, you'll want to direct guests to it! Unless you share the link on social media, wedding save-the-dates and wedding invitations will be your ideal place of reference. While the website is a fantastic source for you and your guests, it definitely does not take the place of invitations. Wedding stationery truly is much more than just a collection of paper! It’s one of your guests' first glimpses into your special day, sets the tone for the event, and serves as a beautiful keepsake that you and your guests will cherish for years to come.
Wedding stationery isn't just about the info leading up to your big day, complete your coordinated suite with wedding programs and your dinner menu. The wedding program is an essential that also serves as another memorable keepsake for your guests. It should list the wedding party, ceremony details and reception location. Your program is also a chance to give an informal thank you to the guests for attending. A wedding menu is a darling addition to place settings and will let your wedding stationery be another part of your wedding theme with a special place in each tablescape.
