Announcing The Monumental Occasion

Oct 01, 2021

A wedding is a monumental occasion, and for the majority of couples, they view this as the most significant milestones in their lives. It is therefore apt, that couples should take the opportunity to announce their nuptials in grand style.

When looking into the nitty-gritty of wedding stationery, do take note of the following :

  • It should reflect your excitement and enthusiasm as well as your personalities and stylistic preferences.
  • Talk to at least 3 stationers, view their range of cards and evaluate the services they offer.
  • As soon as you feel comfortable with a stationer, pay a deposit and get started. Do not procrastinate and do not leave yourself too little time.
  • Mail invites 2 months ahead whereas save-the-date cards can go out even earlier.
  • Decide on a theme which can be fashioned around one of the following – colour, monogram, graphics etc.
  • Calligraphy is sophisticated and elegant but be prepared to invest some additional funds for an expert to be responsible for the hand-written elements of your stationery set.
  • Discuss colours with your parents especially if they are traditional-minded and have objections against inauspicious colours.
  • Be sure to print overruns in case your guest count unexpectedly escalates as it will be costly to do reprints later.
