Why your Wedding Invitation Suite Matters

Your invitation suite is usually the first impression your guests have of your wedding day! When your guests open up an invitation suite compiled of intimate details and luxury materials it’s a whole experience and sets the tone of what to expect the day of. It also makes such a special heirloom item from your day that they will be able to cherish forever. 

Your invitations will also play a large role in your bridal detail photos. It is the who, what, and when of your wedding story and helps to tell the full story of your day in your album, showcasing these in your album also ensures your thoughtfully curated details are documented in a beautiful way.

Must Haves to Include in your Wedding Invitation Suite

  • Save the dates
  • Main Invitations
  • Response Cards
  • Detail Cards

Luxurious Embellishments to Add to your Wedding Invitation Suite

  • Envelopes with an Envelope Liner
  • RSVP Envelope with a Liner
  • Vellum Wrap
  • Wax Seals
  • Debossed Details
  • Hand Dyed Silk Ribbon

Why your Additional Wedding Stationary Matters

Additional stationary plays an important role in your day and helps to tell the full story of your wedding day. Some pieces may be very special intimate pieces of stationary like your vow books or letters to one another. Other pieces may indicate important details pertaining to different parts of the day, whether it’s a luxurious menu listing all the exquisite meals you are enjoying or place cards of each and every one of the most important people to you. You carefully chose these as important elements of your day and documenting these help to tie in the different parts of your day.

Wedding Stationary to Consider

  • Menus
  • Place cards
  • Handmade Paper Vow Books
  • Letters to one another – highly recommend having a professional calligrapher hand write a copy of these for you

Pro Tips:

  • If an entire wedding invitation suite for all of your guests is not achievable I recommend asking your stationary artist for one or two fully custom suites for your detail photos. (Trust me on this one.) 
  • Try to avoid the tri-fold invitations. They are extremely difficult to photograph and often don’t look as good when it’s laid flat.
