If you're planning a wedding this year, make sure you have considered all your on the day stationery options. Don't miss my free on the day stationery checklist here.
Your wedding stationery is the perfect way to set the tone for your special day. From what your guests see as they arrive at the ceremony, to how you welcome them during your drinks reception, stationery can communicate a lot about your style and personality. And if you’re having a weekend wedding, a comprehensive weekend itinerary will ensure that everyone knows exactly when and where they should be! Here’s my guide to on-the-day wedding stationery that will help get you started.
WHAT YOU NEED
When it comes to ceremony stationery, there are several key items that you’ll need. These include ceremony sheets or orders of service (so your guests know what to expect), reserved seat signs (reserved for immediate family members and the bridal party), readings (these make a great keepsake too) and vow booklets (f you plan to exchange rings ).

For your drinks reception, there are a few additional items of stationery that can really help elevate the atmosphere. Make sure all of your guests feel welcome with a beautiful welcome sign displayed near the entrance; let them find their seat easily with a table plan and table numbers; provide menus so they know what food options they have; why not inject some fun into proceedings by including a wedding crossword?
Here's a summary:

Table numbers (or names if you prefer)
Labels for favours
Additional signage can also be useful depending on the activities you are offering during your day - his and her cocktails? Sparklers? Flip Flops for dancing later in the evening? A guestbook for every guest to leave their messages of love? All these elements can be included in coordinating stationery.
