Wedding stationery includes a number of items such as invitations cards, thank-you notes, and cards. You could use your stationery to invite guests to your engagement party or bridal shower as well as for the wedding day. You also need to express gratitude and gladness to your friends and family for taking out time to attend the functions of your marriage. Wedding stationery proves to be very useful here.
Stationery is an integral part of wedding supplies. More often than not people spell stationery as ‘stationary,’ in fact; even I do so when my mind is preoccupied with other things! The word ‘stationary’ means to ‘stand still,’ so it is quite inappropriate to use it to refer to different types of paper.
And ‘standing still’ reminds us that marriage is no time to sit about, relax or even stand still for a few seconds, there is just so much to do! The added benefit of running around is that you end up getting in shape too!
If you organize and plan things in advance, you can make the task much easier for yourself. In the case of wedding stationery, you can always shop for it even a few months in advance. Pick up all types of stationery like cards, notes, colored sheets of paper, covers etc. so that you have ample in hand to write ‘special’ invitations to all. Doing this will not only add much joy to your preparations but will also reduce your stress and worries. Besides, you will also have ample time to send invitations to all your friends and family at a leisurely pace without missing out on anyone. If your wedding is theme based, it would be better to pick up stationery that goes with the theme. On receiving such cards and notes from you, your guests will look forward to a well-planned affair.
