Our Wedding Stationery Suite

Choosing our wedding stationery suite was one of my favorite aspects of the planning process, as I designed every detail on my own. My years of graphic design experience and the creation of wedding stationery for a few dear friends equipped me well to do so, and it was a cost-effective option that allowed us to coordinate our day-of details well without finding an additional stationery source. We went through several iterations before ultimately falling in love with our final design and all of it’s charm.

My very favorite aspect of our stationery suite was the care we put into the thoughtful details on the back of each element.

On the back of the invitation, we included an art print of the blessing that my Tappy prays over each member of my family: ‘May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’

On the back of our response card, we included fun questions for our guests to answer:

– What is the best piece of advice you have to share with Kyla and Dillon for their marriage?

– What or where should their next adventure be?

– What is the one thing Kyla should know about Dillon or vice versa?

And on the back of our detail card, we included a run praise inspired by a print I own from my friend Lara.

We paired our response cards with deep navy blue envelopes, imprinted with our return address in gold ink and pre-stamped to make it simple for our guests to send their regards. I designed and ordered a custom address rubber stamp to make the return address process simple, which saved us lots of time! We took all of the elements and tucked them into pretty blush linen envelopes, which I then brush lettered our guests names onto with indigo watercolor paint.

We styled our day-of suite with vintage stamps from Little Postage House (read more of the story and thought behind them here) and sent the rest on their merry way in late April. The ladies at the post office were kind enough to hand cancel all of our invitations for free, waiving the usual additional expense.

Looking back, I am so thankful for our wedding stationery suite. It reflected us, our style, and our heart to engage with our loved ones well – a decision well made if I ever knew one!
