    If you've decided to have a destination wedding, the wedding invites need to be sent out as soon as possible. However, proper wedding etiquette allows a period between three to six months before the wedding day, allowing wedding invitees and guests to make arrangements such as accommodation and travel. Often,  the bride and groom will contact hotels,  inns or motels close to the wedding venue and request special rates or have rooms blocked out for your wedding guests to choose from. This information can be included in the wedding invite card too.

    Between figuring out your wedding invitations (and sending them out) to the day of the wedding, there are various things on the wedding planning checklist that needs to be accomplished. Things like figuring out what the bride and groom will wear are important being the stars of the show. It's also important to look into other details such as what the bridesmaids, groomsmen, and other members of the bridal retinue/party will wear. This includes their bouquets/boutonnieres, hairstyles and accessories too. That's not all. You have to also consider food and beverages, what type of setup you're going for and the dining style - buffet or sit down.  Accordingly you'll have various wedding stationery options to choose from.

    When it comes to wedding stationery, it acts as an informative tool to often direct your wedding guests as to where they need to go or what is available to them. You'll start with a wedding banner at the entrance to let your guests know they're at the right place, followed by arrows or flags that can be placed paving the way. There can be a place cards table for your guests to pick up theirs and place at the seat they choose. If you've decided where everyone will sit, then you can have yourself a seating chart, either alphabetical or according to the tables, and have the place cards set at each table.

    ​ Other items you may find at the table would include a souvenir menu card if you are opting for a sit down dinner, as well as a table number card and don't forget the  bomboniere tags/labels you may need when presenting your wedding guests with a small token of thanks. Speaking of thanks, you will also need to have ready thank you cards to thank your guests for attending your big day. These are just some of the wedding stationery essentials you may think to use.

    Hand lettering Designs : This means to say lettering that looks like handwriting or even, drawings that look like it's been written. It's quite the rage and looks lovely when finished. What most brides are opting to do is choose printed wedding invitations designs that make for an affordable invitation option.

    Bold Colours and Contrasts: Colour, colour, colour; it's all about colour! You will find this goes hand in hand with hand lettering and also illustrations with pops of colour whilst the colour of the paper is often white for that stark contrasting effect.

    Woodland Accents: If it was ever the time for the world to be eco friendly, it's now. Choose recycled paper (of the PCW paper variety or otherwise) for your wedding invites and match it with woodland designs and effects such as with bark designs or illustrations too.

    Embellishments: For the traditional brides and grooms who do not favour too much contrasts and pops of colour, and lean more towards quality paper stock, trims and embellishments, you will find it's your year with ribbons, buckles, clusters and appliqués being much in favour.

    You will find that save the date wedding cards are sent for destination weddings, three-day weekends and not to mention December weddings, or even peak travel times/seasons as a due courtesy!  Make sure to send your wedding save the dates during that time frame as if you send it earlier than six to eight months it may get lost in the clutter and if it’s sent after four months you might as well just send the invitations for the wedding and forget the save the date cards altogether.
