Wedding Stationery Check List | Love By Design

Not sure where to start with your wedding stationery? We were lucky enough to catch up with the founder of Love By Design, the super creative Rebecca to find out some gems of advice about wedding stationery.  We just love her work and can’t wait to share some of her handy hints……

Before the Big Day

Save the date

This is your guests’ first glimpse into your big day and what they can expect. Remember, you don’t need to overload the save-the-date with details – leave that job to the invitation. Just the date and place (if you have a venue booked) are enough at this stage.

Invitation suite

This is it, the big reveal! Remember to enjoy creating your wedding stationery; there’s tons of inspiration out there and many styles to choose from, so go for it! This could include a paper RSVP with return envelope and additional detail cards.

Wedding website

If you don’t want to wait for the snail-mail RSVP replies to arrive, wedding websites are a fantastic way to coordinate your guests and provide them with all the information they need ahead of your wedding.

Wedding program

Organising a wedding weekend? Or do you have out-of-towners? Create a small booklet of things to do, details about the events planned and important contact details. It’s a great way to welcome your guests to your wedding.


On-the-day items

Order of Service Whether this is in the style of a booklet for the ceremony or just a card showing the running order of the day, it’s a good way to give the guest an idea of what to expect.

Welcome sign

Welcome signs are perfect for both indoor and outdoor venues. Keep them on-theme so your guests’ experience starts right from the door!

Table Plan

From calligraphy on glass mirrors through wooden doors to hanging frames, table plans can be brought to life in many ways, so have fun with your ideas and turn them into a feature!

Table Numbers

Like your table plan, these may be practical elements but they don’t need to be boring. Why not incorporate them into your table display with calligraphy on vases, or create numbers within the floral arrangements?

Place cards

Place cards come in many shapes and sizes and this is a great place to get creative. If you’re not keen on a flat card for your guests, why not try combining your place card with your wedding favours and personalise each one?


There can be one at each setting and personalised with each guest’s name, or a couple per table, but menus are a nice way to ease guests into the sit-down part of your wedding.


Especially useful for the interactive elements in a wedding such as the photo booth or gifting area.

The finer details

These are the extra-special touches such as ‘his and hers’ vow books, reserved seating for the ceremony, personalised guest notes or favour tags that your guests will remember even after the wedding.


After your wedding day

Thank-you cards

Whilst you have already started thinking about these prior to the wedding, you don’t want to wait too long before sending out your thank-you cards. Try not to leave it longer than a couple of months after your wedding day.
