When choosing wedding stationery, you’re presented with so many choices! The print process can hint at your wedding style and formality as does your wording. The print process can also have a huge impact on your wedding stationery budget as well as dictate your paper type and overall design.
One of my favorite parts of being a wedding stationery designer is Styled Shoots. As a “behind the scenes” vendor, I’m not often in the mix with the “day of” vendors that tend to get center stage on the wedding day. By participating in a Styled Shoot, wedding vendors are able to come together for a full day of creative preparation and networking in an effort to put together a mock wedding/event.
One of the most often comments I hear when it comes to wedding invitations is “it’s just paper.” While that may be true, this simple piece of paper captures one of life’s biggest moments in such a significant way that it deserves to be treasured as an heirloom and an everlasting memory of that moment. That piece of paper signifies the joining of two hearts and writes the story of the who, what, when and where. Think of it as the prologue to the epic love story your about to embark on.
One of my favorite parts of wedding stationery, is styling flatlay shoots for each couples wedding invitations. I’m able to bring in my aesthetic into the photography using my branding colors and keeping the look cohesive, while also displaying some of the beautiful paper my brides have chosen.
