Your love storyteller for your wedding on the Amalfi Coast
Wedding stationery gives guests a glimpse at the style of your wedding day, so make it count!
Once your wedding date is in place, you can get going…
Define your wedding style!
Classic and elegant, casual and relaxed, glam and modern –once it is clear to you the type of event you would like to have, choose a stationery style that hits the same note.
Do not forget that whatever style you opt for, it should match your personality and your story …you might even want your wedding stationery to make a personal statement about you and be individual and unusual!
…then, start to look for the one that catches your eye!
Choose your colours and your theme!
Many brides choose a main theme / colours they like and decide to carry this concept through the whole event, from the ‘save the date’ cards to the invitations, from the place cards to the menu, from the ceremony program to the thank-you notes.
White, ivory or cream cards on handmade paper pair perfectly for instance with gold or black font ideal for a classic and formal style, whereas metallic or colorful fonts, envelopes and paper stocks are more suitable for a casual or glam style.
Illustrations, calligraphy, foil stamping, letterpress printing, digital printing… you can really “play” with your wedding stationery style!
Start early – Timing is Everything!
For a destination wedding, ‘save the date’ cards should be sent out at least 8 months ahead of time and invitations 3 months before the wedding.
List only the key points on your invitation!
The MUST details to include: the names of the couple getting married, the date and the time of the wedding, the location and the dress code (although this is optional).
Do not crowd the invitation, otherwise it can become hard to read! Leave additional things such as details about pre or post-wedding activities, the contact information of the hotel where guests are going to stay, the wedding venue address, etc .. for separate enclosure cards.
Do not forget the RSVP card and also ask your guests to include exactly how many people will be coming as well as the number of children they will be bringing, food allergies, menu selected, etc… and make the deadline no more than three or four weeks after guests receive the invitation.
It is also essential to inform the invited guest exactly who the invitation extends to and whether they can bring a plus one. Bridesmaids and groomsmen should be invited with a plus-one, no matter their relationship status.
Your destination wedding on the Amalfi Coast deserves a magical touch… your specialist wedding planner can help you find the perfect custom wedding stationery designs!
