What does the wedding stationery include?
When it comes to your special day, our experience has shown us that many brides and grooms aren’t fully aware of every item that is included in the stationery. Mostly they opt for save the dates and wedding invitations, but forget about one of the most important parts - the on-the-day stationery. Putting aside functionality, this plays a great role in your wedding aesthetic. Having chosen a specific wedding theme, coordinated stationery will compliment your decor. For example, the menu design will accent and adorn your table styling and make the guest experience visually more pleasing. To better understand, here is what one wedding stationery includes:
Before the day
- Save the dates
- RSVP cards
On the day
- Order of service
- Table plan/seating plan
- Table numbers
- Place cards
After the day
- Thank you cards

Semi-Custom vs Bespoke stationery
Even though it might not be a pleasant subject, you need to know your budget and how much you are willing to put aside for this part of the planning. Bespoke stationery is tailored completely to your liking and preferences, but it takes more time to be designed and many turnovers - which means it is more expensive. Semi-custom wedding stationery on the other hand is a pre-designed suite, and you have options to choose from. Therefore, after you’ve chosen your preferred design, you can make some alterations. For example, our customers have the option to choose to go with the suite just the way it is or edit it. In our shop, we also have an option for you to edit the templates yourself and be creative, infusing them with your charm; or we can also do it for you if you prefer us as experts to customize the suite. To guide you through the stationery process you can download our FREE printable checklist which is specially curated to aid your quest and provide you with all the needed information.
If you have a theme or style in mind, we have plenty of design choices you can choose from that will complement your aesthetic perfectly. From “save the date” cards to “thank you” cards and everything in between, you can personalize them with your own information, text, colours, and own photos. Pro tip: our templates are easily edible in Corjl - for which you don’t need any special skills! We welcome you to browse our wedding stationery collection, choose your preferences and infuse it with your authentic styling!
