So you have your date, venue and guest list defined… it’s time to start thinking about wedding stationery!
Here at PaperLove inc. we understand wedding stationery is one of the most essential and much anticipated aspects to any wedding. It can be a daunting task for some couples though with so many ideas available and a vast range of pricing options. Below are a few of our wedding stationery tips to help you along the way…
Wedding Stationery Budget
It is always best practice to set out your budget from the outset with wedding stationery planning. The good news is that whether you are looking for luxury wedding invitations or a DIY style, you will usually always have the opportunity to customise and find something you love in your budget.
Guest List Clarity
Sometimes it’s not possible to invite children to a wedding and it’s really important to let families know. To avoid any misunderstanding and disappointment the perfect way to make it clear who is invited is personalised wedding invitations. As a small addition to your guest information cards, you could also include a personal note…
‘Unfortunately, as much as we’d love to invite all of our friends’ children, we can only accommodate a few close family children. We hope that you will understand this decision and we very much hope you will still be able to join us on our special day.’
Wedding Stationery Style
Wedding stationery is a wonderful way to set the style of your day. Think about your venue, decor or theme and look for personalised wedding invitations, save the date and thank you cards to complement.
Below are some of our PaperLove inc. wedding stationery suite favourites showcasing different styles…

Once you have a clear idea of wedding stationery style, do you have a colour palette in mind or are your personalised wedding invitations and styling following the seasonal colours that your date falls in? A really simple, fun and effective way to define colours you like is to create a mood board. You’ll also be able to share this with your florist and venue to establish the same style across your entire day.
Wedding Invitation Wording
Nowadays many couples are opting for a more modern approach using casual wedding invitation wording but still, there are lots of variations to choose from. Again, think about the style of your wedding… is it modern, relaxed, traditional, formal or themed? Below are some appropriate ideas for wedding invitation wording.
