What is the first thing every guest can see of your wedding?
Yes, your invitation!
Today we share a little insight into one of our favorite details of the day: wedding stationery.
Save the Date, invitation suite, ceremony program, seating cards and reception menu. Wedding stationery has a unique way of pulling your wedding style and theme together like no other detail can. We love when our sweet couple choose custom wedding stationery!
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF CUSTOM WEDDING STATIONERY?
They are just way more personal. Every single detail of the invite is a reflection of your taste and you don’t have to sacrifice one single thing! For some of our brides it is the only optionbecause they can add in some really unique graphics that they can’t find in a pre-made set. Sometimes it would be great to be able to customize the small details!
BIG MISTAKE TO AVOID
Wedding invitation etiquette is so important and these are some tips for planning your Destination Wedding in Italy
FORGETTING THE SAVE THE DATE
Inviting guests to join you in Italy to celebrate your wedding? Then you already know your timeline and planning is different than for a traditional wedding. Standard save the date not include more than your wedding date and the venue, or maybe your wedding website. But if guests need their passports there are a few more things you'll want to tell them in advance.
Plan on sending them a minimum of six months before the Big Day! This will give your guests time to book flight and hotels, make arrangements at work, and plan an extended trip before or after your wedding in Italy.
Instead of a postcard, consider sending out something more. Maybe a little box to have room for additional information, and treat your save the date as more of a pre-invitation than just a “I’m engaged!”.
Think about a general timeline for the weekend's events. Welcome party, brunch, aperitivo, Pizza dinner or any group activities you've planned.
You need to secured a room block at your hotel so guests can figure out which days to take off and reserve their hotel room.
NOT COMPLETING YOUR SUITE
We all know that choosing the right wedding invite is so, so important, but leaving out all of those special extras?
Reception cards, direction cards, RSVPs or even a map!
