In true stationery addict style
(that’s me!) , the gorgeous books I create are offered with crisp clean pages all ready for your guests to sign their names and perhaps leave a wedding day wish for you both on your special day.
After your wedding day is done, you may find amusing anecdotes and all manner of things inside these – but it all adds to recreating the atmosphere from your wedding day in years to come. Always decorated to fully coordinate with your other items it just sets the gift table off nicely and again can be a fab way to keep your guests occupied as you slip away for a few photos, or in between courses at the table (watch out for the soup starter getting spilled on it though!)
You can have a ‘drop-box’ style, which is left to fill up tokens of some sort written with your guests messages and builds a gorgeous picture of the lovely people you shared your day with. You could have a ‘wishing tree’ where lovely messages are hung on it for you to read later, ohh I could go on and on but I am sure if you are keen on pinterest at all you will have seen lots of ideas for these too.
Just remember you are more than welcome to drop me a line if you have any questions about this and so much more.
Before I disappear let me tell you a little about Wedding Post boxes.
I like to use real life examples where possible, so here is one for you. At a family wedding some years ago, the majority of the guests were family. The couple received some amazing monetary gifts, it really was quite astounding. 2 years later, the bride’s sister married and had her reception at the same venue, a similar group of family members attended but she was very shocked not to have received anything at all from one relative in particular, knowing how generous they had been with her sister. It later came to light that they had in fact been gifted with something similar but unfortunately it went missing at the wedding reception.
If you don’t want something like this happening then you need somewhere safe for your guests to place their cards while you party the night away! This can be done inexpensively with a beautifully coordinated decorated and personalised post box available in different styles which would sit beautifully on the gift table on near the cake table is also a good spot for it. Why not pop your guest book right next to it?
When you have spent so much time planning your wedding (I find many of my couples spend at least 18-24 months and many of them even longer) it can be something you imagine for so long that you really want that moment to feel just perfect. As you enter the wedding breakfast room and see the room you have dreamed about taking shape perfectly, a real ‘ta-dah’ moment, you will be so pleased you made the choices that you did and knowing it all coordinates just perfectly without you having to get ‘too’ involved take away some of that stress. I love helping my couples with this piece of their puzzle so why not get in touch and see if I can help your daytime stationery dreams come true?
I have absolutely loved writing this series
to help you understand a little more about the different stationery options available for your wedding, it has also given me a lot of exciting ideas for my own wedding in November 2020. (As I wrote this last post a magical idea popped into my head for our guest book so I quickly scribbled it down before I forgot!)
Check out the epic blog post about wedding stationery packages – click here to understand more about why they can be such a time saver when planning your wedding, not to mention completely co-ordinating everything from day one of your planning!
In the coming weeks I will be sharing more about the other packages available as they are released properly into the wedding world.
It’s all here to help you so make use of it – and remember to ask me any questions at all!

I can’t wait to hear from you,
