How To Pick a Wedding Stationery Theme

Picking a theme for your wedding stationery might just seem like something unnecessary and just another thing to add to your to-do list. But... hear me out.

Your save the dates and invitations are the first glimpse for your guests into how your wedding day is going to be. Imagine sending out elegant Gatsby invitations signalling to guests that you're going to be having an exquisite black tie event, and they turn up on the day to your rustic barn wedding. Stationery is important!

I often hear from wedding stationery clients that they're just not sure 'how it will all come together'. When you're in the early stages of planning your wedding, having only just booked a venue, the actual day and how it will look can seem so far away. It can be really easy to combine lots of different styles and themes into your own, and sometimes it can work! But often it looks in-cohesive and mismatched. I always recommend sticking as much as you can to one theme, even if the overall theme is quite broad, such as 'rustic' or 'monochrome'. 

To hopefully help you to see what a huge impact well designed & carefully planned wedding stationery can make for your big day, we thought we'd share some images from one of our recent couples. Laura & Phil kindly sent in some amazing photos from their beautiful September wedding!

Laura & Phil got married at Cooling Castle Barn, a stunning rustic barn set in the Kent countryside. Their reception was perfectly dressed with fairy lights and beautiful fresh flowers, featuring lilac lisianthus, gypsophila and lavender

Laura knew she wanted to feature lavender on her stationery, in a subtle way, which is exactly what we did! We pulled the colouring onto some of the lettering too, for an extra pop of purple!

The save the dates and invitations are a great place to start showcasing your wedding theme to your guests.

A few months later, you'll be finalising your guest list after receiving back your RSVP cards, and getting ready to order your 'on the day' stationery. This category is for everything you'll need on the day! From seating plans, place cards, table name/number cards, table menus and wedding signs.

Here's the rest of Laura's lavender stationery!

As you can see, having all of the stationery match with each other makes a world of difference to the wedding theme.
