Below we have compiled a few of Rodo’s top tips to get you started when planning your city wedding stationery.
Tip 1 – Get Creative
Use your chosen city/venue to inspire your designs, not only will this make your stationery completely unique to you and your wedding, but it will also inform your guests on what to expect from your big day! Mark and Victoria used their venue of the Manchester Town Hall to influence their stationery by opting for imagery of Manchester’s worker bee with a honeycomb pattern in luxurious gold foil.
Tip 2 – Numbers
When discussing quantities with your stationer, remember that you will only need one invite per family, not person! This will help to cut down on cost whilst also reducing paper wastage! If you are interested in creating an environmentally friendly stationery suite, we offer a range of sustainable options, including recycled and plantable seed paper to help reduce waste and lead a greener life!
Tip 3 – City Destination wedding
Getting married in a city abroad? Let us know beforehand, we may be able to help take away an extra stress by shipping your day stationery straight to your venue for you! We recommend that you start your day stationery 6-5 weeks before your wedding date, this will ensure any last minute drop outs can be amended before going to print!
Tip 4 – City Venue
Getting married in a city can often leave your guests with an overwhelming number of accommodation options. Including accommodation details on your information card is a thoughtful gesture, especial for travelling guests who do not know your chosen city very well. Make sure your guests have no excuse to leave the party early by going the extra mile and including some contact numbers for local taxi companies too!
Tip 5 – Enjoy!
Last but not least, enjoy the journey! From that first consultation meeting to those finishing touches on your big day, your stationery is what makes your wedding so unique and personal to you and your special day.
