Although it will take time and effort, making your own wedding stationary is a lovely idea and is sure to give your wedding that extra personal touch. The first step will be to put together some ideas and to decide on a budget. Even though you can save money, buying all the little bits and pieces to make your stationary can be costly. If you are having 100 guests I would advise choosing an original but simple design as you want to be able to reproduce it quickly and easily. Wedding stationary can include save the date cards, invitations, RSVP cards, menus, place and table names, orders of service, table plan and thank you cards. That’s a lot to think of and make, so allow plenty of time. You will have many other things to do prior to the big day but luckily your stationery can be done well ahead of your big day.
Invitations need to be sent out around 6 – 8 weeks in advance and you may need several weeks to assemble them. You also need to add on time to buy or order any materials, so ideally start them about 4 months in advance. You will need to leave plenty of time to deal with any problems that might arise, make spares just in case and have everything finished well before your wedding so that making your own stationary doesn’t turn out to be a stressful experience. It may be a good and useful idea to involve a few of your close friends or your bridesmaids. Having a wedding stationary workshop can be fun and is sure to get everybody in a wedding planning mood!
