Things like the table plan are often larger items that are one offs. Some of the great ideas that we have seen have been large mirrors with hand written names using a glass pen as well as a world map with each country the couple have visited representing a different table.
We have seen some amazing things. One of our favourites were hand carved wooden magnets and coasters that were stamped with the names of each guests. Admittedly this took some time, and the groom was one of those irritatingly handy/creative types (he won’t mind me saying, he is a close friend of the band, our photographer), but they are really lovely and something that all the guests could keep and remind them of the wedding.
There is so much too look at, and so many wonderful ideas when it comes to stationery for the big day, where do you begin to look? We lightly covered this in a blog from last month, where we took a look at some of AKA’s top sites for brides and wedding ideas. In honesty a quick google search will turn up some great ideas and designs for stationary. Even larger stores and shops such as John Lewis offer a great selection of stationary all of which are worth a look.
If you aren’t going to make your own, and let’s face it most of us aren’t, local wedding fairs and local markets are another great place to look. Often you will find card stands and local suppliers at markets, and if you find a design that you like they might be able to make you an order for however many you need. Wedding fairs are of course a great place to find suppliers, but as always with wedding fairs it is better to look at the ones closer to your location.
Possibly the best place for inspiration in this though is Pinterest. There are so many awesome ideas, themes, pictures and inspiration on there it is almost the wedding one-stop shop for all things like stationery, accessories, dresses, and favours.
Here are some great sites that we think will help you choose your wedding stationery.
