Have you been shopping around for the perfect wedding stationery, but haven’t been able to find one that you truly fall in love with? Then it is time to talk to a stationery professional about designing custom-made stationery to compliment your big day. Before calling up a professional stationer, consider these three things:
Have a Vision
All those hours of research you initially put into finding your perfect stationery was not in vain. Take all those bookmarks, magazine clippings, and saved images on Instagram and turn them into a mood board. Whether a physical collage or a Pinterest board, your mood board should be a collection of elements for your dream stationery. Having a visual of your dream stationery will help your stationer make your dream a reality!
Know Your Time Frame
Are you a year and a half away from your wedding, eight months away from saying “I do,” or six months away from walking down the aisle? Consider your time frame and a realistic deadline to get your invitations printed and mailed to your guests. Professional stationers need time to make sure every detail of your wedding stationery is just as you dreamed it would be, so make sure you have allotted a long enough time frame to pursue custom paper good from a professional stationer.
Consider Your Budget
According to The Wedding Report, a well-known wedding survey data company, the average couple spends $445 on their wedding stationery. As for custom stationery, you can expect to pay $500 to potentially two or three thousand dollars or more on custom invitations and paper goods. Hand-painted details, fine-quality paper, calligraphy and other embellishments begin to add up depending on how intricate your dream paper goods are. Before contacting a professional stationer be sure to have a general idea of how much you have to spend on your custom wedding paper goods so you can let your stationer know your budget and flexibility before they begin crafting your dream wedding stationery!
