Beyond the Invitations: All of the Wedding Paper Goods You Need for the Big Day

Beyond the Invitations: All of the Wedding Paper Goods You Need for the Big Day

Congratulations, you’re engaged! It’s time to start thinking about all of the exciting details, like venue, colors, flowers, and food, to name a few. There’s also the lovely step of announcing your big day through gorgeous save the dates and invitations. While that is a major step, there are several other paper goods that might go into your big day to add beauty, communication, and flow. Sometimes these paper goods might be ordered last minute (like programs, signage, and thank you notes) due to the myriad other planning tasks on the couple’s plate. In fact, many of my clients have said that they did not realize just how many paper products go into the big day prior to planning. 

Wedding Program, Bachelorette Party Invitations, Bridal Shower Invitation

That’s where Serif & Spice comes in. We will proactively work through your paper goods together from our first conversation. I’ll help you determine what you need, keep you on track timing wise, and design everything to align with your vision, ensuring you have a beautifully cohesive set from the save the dates all the way to the thank you notes. That way, you can rest assured knowing that your announcements and stationery are taken care of, freeing you up to work on all of the other aspects of planning on your plate!

Below is a list of general stationery items to consider when it comes to your wedding to get you started. However, don’t feel limited by this list! The sky's the limit in terms of what we can make both design and production wise. Not all couples need every item on the list, and with others I’ve created entirely new things! (For example, I had a client who had me create tags to fasten to her handmade table runners). In the meantime, utilize the list below as a starting point to keep you on track and to spark inspiration.
