Wildcard Wednesday: Stationery Items

When people think about wedding stationery, they usually only consider the save-the-date cards and the invitations. Yet there are so many more items to consider, especially if you would have all of your stationery promote the same look, brand, and feel.

To illustrate the various stationery items, I’ve employed Wedding Paper DivasChalkboard Floral design in Orange Sherbet. (They’re REALLY cute and budget-friendly!)

The Save the Date Card

This is the informal announcement that you and your fiance are getting married. It precedes the actual invitation.

The Invitation

This is the formal, official announcement that you are getting married and indicates that the person receiving the invite is indeed invited to the wedding.

The Response Card

This is also known as the “RSVP Card.” It allows the invitee to confirm or deny whether they will be attending your wedding as well as indicate, how many are attending with them, and what meal they prefer if you extend this grace to them. Accompanies the invitation.

The Enclosure Card

This item may list the directions to the venue(s) as pictured, the hospitality and accommodation information, and even the registry information.  Accompanies the invitation.

The Address Label

If your living arrangements are settled by the time you order your wedding stationery, you can include this with the wedding invitation (or send it out afterwards) to tell your invitees where to send their gifts, cards, etc. It also enables them to update your mailing address in their records.

The Menu Card

This is placed at the wedding reception guest’s seat as a part of the table setting to indicate what they will be eating and drinking for the event.

The Gift Tag (Sticker)

Like any gift tag, you can attach this to the gifts you give out to your spouse, attendants, parents, etc. They are a very lovely option to consider.

The Thank You Card

This is the most important post-wedding stationery item. Pretty self-explanatory, it thanks everyone for the gifts they’ve given you in celebration of your wedding.
