By now the RSVP’s are back in and most of the details are decided, apart from perhaps the Best Man speech (last minute.com). If you are anything like us at Weddings by Lumi, then you will already be planning matching on the day stationery. You may well of ordered these already with your invitations to secure extra volume discount (go you!), but if not don’t panic, there is still time to get the final details together to make your big day go to plan. There is a wide range of stationery accessories available, and it can be overwhelming. So, we have chosen our top 5 wedding accessories to help you on your way:
Perhaps one of the most striking accessories and not just there to be pretty! Combine with matching table numbers/names and guest place cards to direct your guests to their seats. A super keepsake from the day too, ours is still hung up in the studio today, *cough 14 years later!
Whether you are having a religious ceremony or civil service, these booklets are must haves for your guests to understand the order of the ceremony. Make sure you get the Usher’s involved greeting your guests and handing them out at the entrance. Many guests will even take one home as a memento of the day.
A wedding guest book is a great way to capture your guests’ feelings from the day together with wishes and advice for the future. To make all the guests get involved get your Ushers involved taking the book around the wedding breakfast and don’t forget the evening guests too!
If you are having children at your wedding (a topic for another blog I think), then a great way to keep them entertained is with an activity pack. Full of puzzles and colouring and complete with colouring pencils so there are no awkward conversations with the table cloth supplier.
After all the effort (and tasting) that went into choosing your wedding cake, make sure no guest goes home without a piece. Probably full of delicious wedding breakfast and evening buffet by the end of the night a piece of cake can be enjoyed the next day whilst the events of yesterday are remembered fondly.
Make sure you get your chosen wedding accessories ordered in plenty of time to avoid any stress before the big day. We suggest placing your order no later than 2-3 months before the day. This gives you time to make any alterations, remember to ask for proofs for items such as order of service booklets. We hope your day is magical and remember to share photos of your stationery with us @weddingsbylumi
