Wedding Stationery For Simple Affairs

By Bernard Miner

A bride and groom will want their special day to be elegant and beautiful from the beginning to end. Wedding stationery for elegant affairs is the first stop on a long list of things to do for the bride and later the groom. Even though the celebration will be an elegant affair, that does not mean the invitation has to be frilly or too feminine.

For a simple ceremony, a bride and groom could choose a simple flora patterned paper with an ordinary font for the lettering. For a celebration that is more festive or has a theme, the couple could choose cards which represent their theme, color or something that embodies them as a couple. For example if they enjoy nature or skydiving, this could be part of the invitation background.

Saving money is a major factor for all couples these days. They need to be aware of the choices in paper and cardstock before choosing the most expensive based on looks and not weight. Many of the heavy weighted papers will cost more to ship because the post office charges by the ounce. A bride and groom need to consider their postage costs in with their budget for invitations and return cards.

Saving money on different pieces of the invitations will help the couple retain more of their money for other things they may want or need. If they leave out the multitude of envelopes that typically accompany some of the more formal invites, they will save money. Instead of all the envelopes, especially the one to return and reserve a seat, a couple could use a simple postcard. A monogrammed or photograph of the happy couple would be ideal for a postcard's back.

The wording for an invite to the special day will also need to be just right. There is proper etiquette when listing parent's names, step-parents names or grandparent's names. A couple will want this to be spelled correctly and worded right for the occasion. Many written requests are printed in a very fancy font. A bride and groom could choose which font they would like their invitation printed in and many places do not charge extra for this service.

There are several different techniques that could be done to the cardstock in order to make it special for the big day. There are laser cuts or die cuts which make paper cutouts and a nice, elegant touch to any invitation. Adding just the right amount of glitter, a few sequins or a few shiny dots or beads will liven up any type of card.

A wedding stationery store is an important part of the preparations for a marriage celebration. The couple needs to be sure they are comfortable with the stores polices, warranties, selection and prices before they sign a contract. It is better to take a few days to be sure than to rush into a contract and be stuck with something you may not like later.
