SAVE THE DATES ~ TOP TIPS

Planning a wedding is hectic to say the least, so it's wonderful to have top tips from suppliers in the industry to avoid common mistakes and ensure you get exactly what you want.

The lovely folks at Love My Dress asked for save the date tips from some of their wedding stationery bods, here are a few of mine (some apply to more than save the dates!):

GET WHAT YOU WANT

First and foremost, ask for exactly what you want. Even if it is sky-blue-pink with a yellow border, because chances are it can be done!

 

IDEAS

Send as much info as possible when you drop me a line. The more info I have (think images, colour, finishing), the easier and quicker it will be to get you a quote - and let's face it, that's the most important thing!

 

AWKWARD CONVOS

Use save the dates as a breeeezy way to ask a guest to 'save the evening' instead of sending them save the dates AND invites. It also avoids any awkward convos.

 

ONE AT A TIME

Get the save the dates out first and then worry about the rest. Any good stationery supplier won't force you to design and pay for ALL stationery at the same time, that would be crazy talk.

You will also be able to run any design through it all, so take one thing at a time so you can focus on budget and changes in circumstances.

 

COMMS + TRANSPARENCY

Communication is key! Boring but true. I will keep you up to date with work in progress snaps and involve you at all stages. 

If something can't be done within budget or to a high enough standard, I will be the first to let you know and I will work with you to recommend alternatives.

 

Above all, this is the exciting bit and should be fun! Whomever you choose, it's their job to know what weight a paper should be and whether you need matte or satin, so take their advice and let them do the hard work! :)

Little Book For Brides ~ Louie Tilley Lettering
 

2018 is looking set to be a busy year for weddings so I am super chuffed to be featured in the Little Book For Brides directory alongside all the other lovely stationery bods.

Beautiful bespoke wedding stationery, chalkboards and signs finished off with exquisite calligraphy and brush lettering by Louie. We adore her work.

Give me a shout if you have a wedding next year and need some advice; I work on the teeniest detail such as place names all the way up to entire packages on the day, nothing is too small and I'm always up for a cuppa and a brainstorm!
