Planning the Wedding Stationery!



A big part of planning the perfect wedding is the stationery!  Here are some ideas for adding your handmade love to a special day!  If you've been following this blog and the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog you will have seen some of these projects before.  I've finally completed the set and assembled them together!  I'm sure you could come up with even more ideas by combining different A Way With Words dies.

Hop over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today to see other wedding themed inspiration!

You can just choose a few important dies and stamps for your wedding creations or all of them shown here.

Save The Date

Sending this out will certainly alert everyone that there something really big happening!  How exciting!


For this wedding set, I used Soft Finish Cardstock in white, both 90lb and 110lb.  The heavier cardstock makes a great cardbase so make sure you use that!  Soft finish cardstock has a wonderful delicate pebbled surface that softens blended inks.  It's very classy!



All the stationery features ink blending using Distress Worn Lipstick and Bundled Sage.   They vary a bit with placement in these samples, but you can be consistent throughout the collection. Adhere the elements with Micro Glue Dots.





Last summer Kathy Jo did a gorgeous wedding set using these dies.  Here is her Save the Date.  I'll share a few of her samples here, so you can see how she has used the same dies, but with a different design theme.  You can find even more of her ideas using these dies here including the Mr and Mrs die set.



Kathy Jo used a stamping platform to stamp out the information on the inside of the card!  Please Join Us and Months and Numbers were used to create this with formal black stamp ink!

You're Invited

Here it is!  The card they've been waiting for!  Add all the details inside and don't forget to include an RSVP card!

You're Invited is made the same way as Save the Date, simply change the diecut to You're Invited!



In this version the flourish from the Flourished Frame has been added underneath and the elements are cut from foiled cardstock.  Gorgeous!


And in it's simplest form....


RSVP


Along with the invitation, you'll need an RSVP card.  Print the information on a separate paper and insert it with a couple of Glue Dots to the inside.  I've underlined the RSVP with the coordinating Long Stem Rose diecut.  So pretty!

Here is the variation.



Welcome


Once your guests have arrived, you might want to give them an Order of Service or Program.  Why not create a Welcome card!? 
This one is designed to unfold to all the information on the inside.  I've underlined the Welcome with the Long Stem Rose to coordinate with the RSVP.


Menu

After the ceremony, it's time to party!  If you're having a sit-down meal, you might like to include a menu at each place setting.  For these I've used the Menu diecut in two different ways.
The top one simply has the menu printed on a sheet of linen paper and then it is topped with the Menu diecut and Long Stem Rose, designed to continue the look of the RSVP and Welcome cards.



The second variation is a tent-fold card with Menu and Long Stem Rose on the front and the menu printed inside.



Favour Boxes

Give your guests a sweet memory of your special day with a tiny thank you gift box.  The Gable Box is a "fan favourite" for this job!


In this variation, I've used the little flourished rosebuds from the Rosebud Wreath and Elements die set.  These are some of the elements!

.....and the variation.


Thank You

After the happy day, it's time to send out Thank You cards.  Continue on with the elegant look of your stationery by using Thank You 2 inside the Rosebud Wreath.


....and the variation.


Love

And last but not least....  It never hurts to have a little Love card handy if you're giving a gift or.....
This one uses the flourished rosebuds from the Rosebud Wreath & Elements and the A Way With Words Love diecut.



Thanks for having a look today!  I hope it's inspired you!
Have fun and don't stop making awesome things.
