Beautiful Handmade Wedding Stationery by Lovebug Designs
Once you have decided on the invitation style and design for your wedding, why not follow through from the invitations with coordinating handmade wedding stationery for the church and your tables at the reception venue. Bring your theme and colours together with Order of Service, a table plan, place cards, table names and menus.
If you are having a Church wedding, the Order of Service lists the agenda of your ceremony and the Ushers usually hand them to the guests as they arrive at the entrance of the Church. If you are planning a civil ceremony then you can have an Order of the Day, which is a simple guide to the ceremony and you may also want to include other items that are happening throughout the day. Place cards are essential if you have a table plan as they allow guests to find their seat with ease so there is no confusion. Place cards are designed to complement the wedding table plan – they make a beautiful final detail to the wedding breakfast. They are printed with the guest names to save you hand writing them – this way they will coordinate with your other stationery and look more professional. Table Names or Numbers are displayed on each table at your reception to enable it to be easily identified by your guests once they have looked at the table plan.
In addition to place name cards, an overall seating plan is usually displayed at the entrance to the dining room, so that guests know the general location of their seats. If you are planning a traditional sit down wedding breakfast, a table plan is a good way to ensure your guests will find their seats without any hassle or confusion. Lovebug Designs offer table plans in a range of sizes to suit any size wedding party and are tailor made to coordinate with your invitations and other items of stationery. They make a lovely keepsake of your wedding for you to hang after the special day. You may also wish to provide menus for your guests if you are having a sit down wedding breakfast rather than a buffet-style meal. They provide something on the table for the guests to read whilst they are waiting for everyone to be seated – it is always nice to know what you are going to be eating.
Other items you may wish to consider are a post box, guest book, sweet buffet tags or favours. As everything is hand made to order, you can order exactly what you need.
