Matching Your Wedding Stationery on a Budget

So, you like the idea of creating your own invitations.

But how do you get all your stationery to match?

And how do you stick to your theme, keeping all your stationery together, without busting your budget?

Let me help you out.

Save money on your evening invitations

One of the most effective ways to save pennies on your stationery aside from DIY is to send your day and evening guests slightly different designs. With most of the wedding invitation designs you can buy at Pure Invitation there’s a simpler alternative for your evening guests using the same theme but the costs are considerably lower for this simpler yet still beautiful evening invitation.

Half your “Order of Service” orders

Order of Service. For those of you having a church ceremony, you really don’t need to go to the expense of one booklet per person. One between two and a handful of spares will be ample.

How many menus per table do you need?

The same goes for your menus. We’ve all seen the images in a glossy wedding magazines where they’ve placed a menu on each plate and while it looks beautiful if you’re working to a budget, one or two menus on each table will be fine.

Simplify your place cards

Place cards. Some of my designs have more elaborate place cards but you can still create a matching design without the embellishments, simply choose the card colour to match your theme. You can opt for ribbon or twine or leave them blank. I do offer a guest printing service but there’s nothing wrong with handwritten place cards.
