4 Ways to Propose to Your Wedding Party

A wedding party proposal is a term coined to describe the unique and honorable ways engaged couples ask their loved ones to be in their wedding. From hand written sentiments to customized hankies, there are countless memorable and personalized ways you can “propose” to your wedding party.

Stuffed Gift Bag

A popular and inexhaustible proposal idea is to stuff a nice, personalized tote bag or backpack with your friend’s favorite snacks, candles, drinks, self-care items and other elements that highlight the weddings theme. A fun option is to include something you’ll want everyone to wear on the big day or during the bachelor/bachelorette parties.

Personalized Goods

There are wonderful personalized gift options for everyone on your list whether you’re asking a father to walk you down the aisle, a family member to be your officiant, or a friend to be your maid of honor. Fan favorite items include hankies, mugs, drink koozies, cufflinks, hangers, shirts, and hats.

Party Accessories

Initiate the party right off the bat with some lively party favors! Gift your loved ones a flask, a bottle of liquor, a shot glass, a bottle opener or any other item that will get them ready to party with you. Other party alternatives you could gift include high quality cigars, games, noise makers, wigs or funny glasses.

A Card

There’s truly nothing like receiving a thoughtful hand written card from someone you love. Cards are not only classically simple but they can be funny, heartfelt, sweet or a combination of all three. You can either personalize every card, shop existing styles, or design your own custom cards to match your other wedding stationery items.

What Your Luxury Wedding Invitations Should Include

If you are planning to have an elegant and memorable wedding, you will want a luxurious wedding invitation delivered to your guests. Invitations are a preview to the wedding itself, giving your guests a glance at the type of wedding you are arranging. For lavish and extravagant weddings, invitations are completely personalized and exquisitely designed to reflect the central motif of the wedding, which can include elements such as engraved ink and ecru shimmer. Continue reading to find out what your luxury wedding invitation should include.

Invitation Card

The basic information inside of the invitation card will include the couple’s name, date, time, and location. More details such as hotel information and a link to a wedding website are optional. For a more luxurious touch, the card itself can be customized with laser-cut designs, embossed texture for the writing, shimmer wraps, or even a satin ribbon to tie it all together. Everything from the font down to the paper color can be personalized.

Response Card

On the outside, formal response cards will have postage included and a return address reprinted on the return envelope. For the inside, RSVP wording is printed and customizable too. It’s also good etiquette to add a menu section so your guests can select which entree they prefer, if you choose to have a plated reception dinner. This lets your guests know what they will be eating and gives your caterers more time to prepare. Just like the invitation card, your response card can be embellished and printed with your choice of ink, lettering, and paper.

Envelopes and Belly Bands

Envelope suites are stylish and sophisticated, but can also be a wonderful keepsake for your guests. The envelope itself also protects the contents of the card, while still giving your wedding invitation a formal appearance. To carefully bind everything together, a belly band is recommended to keep your invitation and enclosures neatly organized.

3 Affordable DIY Wedding Stationery Ideas

It’s incredible all that a DIY bride can accomplish when blessed with a bit more spare time than spare cash. In this month’s blog post we discuss three DIY wedding stationery ideas that may require a little more time, but will help you save hundreds of dollars on your overall budget.

1. Photoshop

If you or someone close to you has sufficient experience using Photoshop, you can use the program to design your own stationery and bring your ideas to life. This option requires you to purchase plenty of your own stationery paper and printer ink, if printing from home. It’s also crucial that you know your desired image dimensions and have access to a high quality printer and paper cutter.

2. Buy a Template

A quick online search will lead you to thousands of digital templates for all types of stationery, including packages that contain everything you need from save the dates and invitations to table number markers and dinner menus. The beauty of this option is you simply shop for a collection, download it and input your wedding details before printing and cutting everything out.

3. Go Digital

Sending digital invitations is a rapidly growing trend because it’s convenient, affordable, and earth-friendly. Online invitation tools are easy to find and will cover a majority of your stationery needs, including invitations, RSVP’s, save the dates, and thank you cards. Keep in mind however that this option is not suitable for menus, table number markers, or programs.

Final Thoughts

How Customized Stationery Has Stayed Relevant in Modern Times

For a number of reasons, it may seem as though the era of personal printers and hard copies is on its way out. However niches in the paper industry, customized stationery in particular, have proven their unparalleled value in the age of technology. Not only does customized stationery get your correspondence noticed and bolster branding, it even helps individuals further portray their affection to loved ones who are far away.

In terms of business, customized stationery can be incredibly powerful. Employees, clients, and anyone else who comes in to contact with the brand or one of its branded items will quickly realize that they are professional and committed to investing in their image. Whether it’s an official letter or a note pad, the brand is continuously being shared and gaining exposure.

Sentimental Purposes

What could portray more thoughtfulness than a customized thank you letter? Not a whole lot! While there has been a rise in popularity in the use of digital cards, the industry will never come close to sharing the same success that custom stationery continues to have. These types of notes are often kept for their nostalgic value, reconnecting them to the emotions the note emoted originally.

Indication of Importance

Most people understand that if something is important enough, it will be sent in the mail rather than via email. From invitations and legal statements to acceptance letters, messages delivered on customized stationery are able to emphasize the gravity of their importance. The full weight behind a message can truly be measured and understood simply by being customized and in physical form.

Conclusion

Beautiful for business and perfect for personal, customized stationery will continue to stand the test of time.
