When it comes to your wedding, stationery is the first thing your guests see. Your Save-the-date and then your invite is their first glimpse into what your special day will be like; classic and elevated? Minimal and modern? Floral and fun? So, it’s important to use that initial stationery to set the tone for your wedding! We partnered with Artifact Uprising to share how you can carry that same tone throughout your day and achieve cohesive wedding stationery from start to finish. Yes, it’s possible! Especially when working with a brand like Artifact Uprising, whose wedding line includes save the dates, wedding invitations, thank you notes, gifts, wedding guest books and more. It just means thinking a little bit ahead to ensure the pieces you pick 6-9 months out match the style of your day-of paper goods (and even your wedding album!). Here are a few tips and inspiring ideas to get you started…
Pick A Theme
What do you want your stationery to say? When your save-the-dates come in the mail, you want your guests to squeal with excitement, right?! So pick stationery that says who you are as a couple and implies the wedding theme. And don’t forget to include a photo! Whether it be from your engagement session or the proposal, it immediately adds personality. We personally love the metallic foil options Artifact Uprising offers from rose gold to silver in addition to plenty of font options and colors that can bring your theme to life. Plus, their clean, thoughtful, and timeless designs ensure you won’t pick something now, that’s out-of-style by the time your wedding day rolls around!
When in Doubt, Strive for Simplicity
Along with your theme, you likely chose colors and fonts to reflect it with the save-the-dates, so it’s important to carry those aesthetics through to the invitations as well. Artifact Uprising makes this easy with their clean, minimalistic invitations that tie into their save-the-date options so well you hardly have to try to match them! Plus, the templates are incredibly easy to use! We know wedding plans can be time consuming, so we can appreciate the ability to simply choose a beautiful style and plug in your information. And with 9 brand new designs (launched this month!) you’ll easily be able to find a suite that suits you and your fiancés style. After all, it’s all about telling your story leading up to the beautiful day that awaits!
It may be hard to tell from the photos, but these timeless designs are not only printed on premium paper but also FSC certified for the environmentally conscious couple. You can rest assured that you’re guests are receiving high quality paper goods with a small footprint.
Plan Ahead for Day-Of Stationery
Now that you’ve checked off the early action items with save-the-dates and invitations, it’s time to start thinking of the paper goods you will need on the day-of the wedding. There are so many things that come down to the last minute, but your day-of stationery doesn’t need to be. Now that you’ve picked your theme, colors, etc. it’s easy to plan ahead for guest books, welcome signs, menus etc.
The Wedding Guest Book Artifact Uprising offers allows you to display all of your favorite photos from an engagement session, or from throughout your relationship, alongside space for handwritten notes. This not only lets you remember the loved ones who came to celebrate your special day, but also lets them see more of the two of you! They can pan through the beautiful book and sign upon arriving or during cocktail hour. Afterwards, you’ll be left with a beautiful book that not only documents everyone who was there, but also photos from that season in your life.
Don’t Forget the Items That Come After The Wedding
Once you receive your wedding photos, you will want to show them off everywhere. After all, we’re sure your wedding day will be everything you could have dreamed of and the photos help keep the memory of that day alive! Thankfully, Artifact Uprising offers a supremely custom print experience ideal for turning your wedding photos into keepsakes. From calendars to beautiful albums, the classic and timeless products they offer will allow you to treasure the day and your photos of it in a preserving way. So go crazy with stunning framed prints, calendars and wall hangings! Most important of all? A wedding album! Trust us, this is something you will cherish forever.
