You and Your Wedding - - Reception Trends -

Give your de­signer a cou­ple of ex­am­ples to work with “It’s al­ways help­ful to let your sta­tionery de­signer know what kind of style you like – and us­ing ex­am­ples to do this is a great idea,” says Vaishali. “You could also look at the de­signer’s own web­site to see what de­signs they have cre­ated which are sim­i­lar to what you are look­ing for.”

Your in­vi­ta­tions don’t have to match your colour scheme “I think it’s im­por­tant that cou­ples don’t feel pres­sured into de­cid­ing on a theme when they are send­ing out save the dates,” she says. “How­ever, you may want to con­sider co­or­di­nat­ing some­what, to give your wed­ding a har­mo­nious feel.”

Make sure you leave enough time for print­ing “Don’t for­get that de­sign­ing and print­ing can take time,” ad­vises Vaishali. “If a de­signer is cre­at­ing a one-off de­sign from scratch, this can take three or four months to de­sign and print. How­ever, off-the-shelf col­lec­tions are able to be turned around in a month or so.”
