You may have an idea already of how you want your wedding stationery to be designed to fit with the style of your day. However, if your stationery doesn’t have all the relevant details, this could end up being more wedmin than you need!

A wedding stationery designer will be able to help you through this process, but it’s important to factor in design and printing lead times a while before your big day. Keep in mind that it may take some time to find the right designer for your needs, who can create the exact aesthetic you have envisioned. If you decide to buy your wedding invitations off the shelf then you may find our 15% off Papier discount useful.

The below checklist is a general guide to popular wedding stationery both before and on the day. You may not need all of it, but it’s good to keep in mind how the finishing touches of extra stationery on the day can make the whole experience even better for you and your guests.
