From escort cards to programs, we’re breaking down all of the pieces of your bridal-paper essentials.
Before you order your wedding stationery, it’s always a smart idea to put together a list of all the paper elements you’ll need. This will help you and your spouse-to-be stay on budget and figure out which pieces are essential and which ones you may not need. To help, we’ve put together awedding stationerychecklist—a guide to all of the variouspaper elements you might need for your big day. Keep in mind, though, that this list is not meant to be all-inclusive—a vast majority of theseelementsare optional, can be done as a DIY project, or can be mailedelectronically (besides the wedding invitation itself—we still think it’s important to send guests a printed invitation).
Print out this checklist and bring it to your consultation meeting with your stationer or your Plan My Wedding Coordinator.
