Standing Out Via Customisation

Jun 01, 2019

The creative expression of a designer in collaboration with the ideas of a soon-to-be-wed couple often results in wedding stationery that stands out, stationery that depicts the couple’s personalities and the stylistic inclination of the designer. When executed well, the aspirations of both the couple and their wedding stationer are met, in the form of invites, table cards, place cards and the like, that will be appreciated by all.

A few tips :

  • List out the items in the stationery suite that you require before meeting with potential designers.
  • Bring along photos, magazine tear-sheets and samples that may have inspired you.
  • Be practical on what you can afford and how much you have budgeted for stationery.
  • Nail down the size of your guest list before printing invites to ensure you have sufficient cards to send out.

A few tips :

  • Have your photographer document the stationery suite.
  • Little details such as place cards on guest tables or perhaps tags on wedding favours make beautiful photos.
