Top 17 Wedding Styles: The Most Beautiful Wedding Stationery & Wedding Invitations

Your wedding stationery is what will hint towards your wedding theme and mood from the moment you decide to announce your wedding day. Consider your wedding stationery to be an equally important part of your wedding décor, and make sure it’s consistent with your theme and in in line with your vision. Even the wording and tone of your voice when writing your wedding invitations will be a key detail of your overall wedding style. After all, you cannot invite your family to an elegant, luxurious wedding, but then use informal phrases and slang!

Here are a few tips as well as our favorite & prettiest wedding stationery trends for 2021 to inspire you!

Let’s start by what Wedding Stationery includes :

To make things clearer and easier for you, we have grouped all types of stationery by specific wedding event. This list is quite handy as you can use it as a reference when planning & designing your wedding invitations and stationery.

1- Wedding Announcements & Wedding Invitations :

This part includes your wedding save-the-date or wedding announcement, the invitation cards, and the RSVP cards. You might also want to include a map to your wedding location or your wedding registry details.

2- Your Wedding Ceremony:

The ceremony’s program, mass booklets and prayer book covers (if you are having a religious ceremony), personalized confetti cones, song lyrics, etc. will make your wedding ceremony extra special

3- Your Wedding Reception:

Your wedding reception should include place cards & seating charts, table numbers & names. On the wedding tables, you can even add customized wedding menus, guests’ names, favor labels, customized labels for your wine bottles, special notes for your guests, etc.

4- Post-Wedding:

End your wedding on a thoughtful (and pretty) note with thank you cards while your guests are leaving, small favors or dessert packages, etc. You can even send thank you cards or emails after a couple of days.

5- For your destination wedding, you might want to use additional welcome stationery elements:

Welcome package labels & notes to greet your guests, printed destination wedding activities program, maps, and other useful information will all be greatly appreciated by your guests who traveled far to celebrate your wedding.
