A beautiful invitation arriving in a mailbox is going to bring a big smile to your guests. I wanted to share some of my favourite stationery vendors who would be happy to create paper goods for your wedding day.
Make sure to keep a full invitation suite for the photographer. It should be complete with calligraphy (if applicable) and stamps (but not postmarked). It’s also wise to request multiple copies of each piece so that the photographer could pair a front and a back in the same photo.
If you won’t send the invitation suite to your photographer before he/she arrives at the wedding location, send an iPhone photo in advance so that your photographer can get a feel for the colour palette and prepare accordingly (if you are not working with a wedding planner, who would certainly do it).
