From wedding invites and save the dates to place cards and menus, wedding stationery requires a degree of planning even if you are having a relatively low-key celebration. Depending on your personality and approach, you may be considering bespoke wedding stationery, versus doing it yourself with generic stationery or do it yourself kits.

Here, we cover a few reasons why it is a great idea to consider bespoke stationery design:

Truly unique designs

If you work with a designer, then you know that the final outcome will be truly unique to you and your wedding. A designer will take the time to know you, your partner and your story. They will discuss your vision with you and create something entirely personal. With anything bought online, you know that someone somewhere could well have the same wedding invites as you.


Wedding stationery isn’t as easy to create as it looks. Everything from paper type, layout, wording, production times and colour schemes need to be considered. With a professional designer, you know you will get sound, expert advice and avoid any pitfalls. Most importantly, the finished product will look utterly professional, even if your desired look is a homemade, rustic one.


Any couple planning a wedding knows that there is an incredible amount to do. While it might be tempting to take on the wedding stationery yourself, you could end up spending a huge amount of time on tasks a designer could do for you.

All in all, the decision is up to individual couples. Hopefully, however, this article has helped point out a few benefits of passing this part of wedding planning to a professional.
