Wedding Day Stationery Dos and Don'ts

Wedding Day Stationery Dos and Don'ts

Ever been to a wedding and not been able to figure out where to go? Not been able to read the menu? Waited a liiiittle too long on the bride to get down the aisle? These are all problems that your wedding day stationery can actually help solve - if you know how to use it the right way. I’m obviously a little biased, but there are some practical ways to use the stationery so that it’s not only beautiful, but also functional. And with everything - there are some definite no-nos you’ll want to avoid.

Honestly, just some dusty blue, burgundy, and vintage car wedding goodness with a dream team of vendors (all listed at the bottom!). This wedding featured some lovely details and some of our favorite dusty blue menus ever. Plus, if either of you are a car fanatic - you’ll want to get a look at this vintage beauty.

Tuscan Countryside Wedding Bliss | Zibby + JT

Tuscan Countryside Wedding Bliss | Zibby + JT

Where to even start with this one? I truly feel like part of the family with Zibby + JT, after working with them for over two years now. This was my first invitation suite for an international destination wedding, and it was in Tuscany, which is my home abroad. I lived in Florence for several months and haven’t gotten the olive oil out of my system since, so painting a mini Duomo and Ponte Vecchio for this couple was one of my favorite moments of Design by Laney. More Italian weddings, per favore!

Oceanside Modern Wedding | Desiree + Michael

Oceanside Modern Wedding | Desiree + Michael

Another real wedding to share today, and this one has a special place in my heart! Desiree and Michael just exude kindness and positivity in every single interaction I have with them - both of them would separately wish me well if I posted about being sick on Instagram, for instance (yep, even the groom!!!). You just know two beautiful souls like that are in for a wonderful, happy marriage together! The fact that it also happened to be a Pinterest dream is just an added bonus! All of these phenomenal photos are courtesy of the amazing Jenna Joseph (and you can read more of D + M's love story on her blog).

Oceanfront Proposal with Pink and Gold Stationery

Oceanfront Proposal with Pink and Gold Stationery

If you are planning to visit San Diego, I highly recommend a trip to the famous "Pink Lady," La Valencia Hotel. There is no other hotel or venue that speaks to the San Diego vibe more (in my not-expert-at-all opinion), and in the heart of beautiful La Jolla, you truly can't beat the views or the surroundings. I can't imagine a better place to be surprised with a marriage proposal!
