Wedding Stationery Tips - Why use a Stationer for your Wedding Invites?

I quite often hear “oh, I’m going to make my invitations myself” and that’s great! But.... it can often take a lot longer, and cost more than you think.

So why use a stationer, like me? I’ll give you 3 good reasons:

1. Peace of Mind

The absolute main reason is to take away your stress! You have enough to organise for your wedding as it is! Once you’ve booked with me all you need to do is give me the wedding details and start to find all your guest addresses. That’s it. I make it as simple and painless as possible! I send you colour swatches and a hard copy proof of your invitation to you, and I keep all your info and our correspondence in one place so that you can easily access it from anywhere, anytime you want. That way you don’t need to worry about it taking up your valuable time and your stationery slipping down your list of ‘wedmin’.

2. My knowledge & skills

I’ve done this before (as a bride and as a stationer!). Why waste your time on trying to work it all out when I already know it and can save you the time and hassle? I know how to make identical wax stamps so you don’t need to scroll through YouTube to learn how to do it. I also have all of the equipment needed so you don’t need to spend even more money buying in the bits and pieces that you’ll only use once. I’ve also spent years (yes, years) researching the best suppliers and sourcing the best quality materials so you know you’ll be getting the most luxe stationery possible! And because I’ve done this many times before your invitations will look great! They won’t look like a Pinterest fail if you’re not quite on-point with your paper skills. They will be delivered to you in plenty of time and you can bask in the glory of a job well done!

3. Full coordinating stationery

you can order a fully matching suite from Save the Dates, Invitations, to Table Plans, so you don’t have to buy from 3 different companies to make it look ‘sort of’ the same. Save the time and disappointment of ordering different things from different places only to find that they look nothing like they did in the photo and are definitely not the same colour. From your colour swatches you are able to see them in real life, at home, so you know you are getting the exact colours you want. They can then be used to throughout all of your wedding stationery.

So if you want make this an enjoyable process, then let me organise your wedding stationery for you. Just give me a shout!
