You might have thought about designing your wedding invitations or a website for your wedding, and there's nothing wrong with that at all! But if you're trying to create something beautiful and perfectly in sync with the style of your wedding day, then it might be time to consider hiring a professional. Here are my top reasons why working with a stationery designer is worth every penny...
Invitations are quite often your guests first experience of your wedding day.
First impressions are everything in this world. And your wedding invitations will quite likely be the first glimpse of your wedding that your guests will receive; they need to feel welcome from their very first moment. Your invites should be able to properly communicate everything your guests need to know and undertasnd about your day...from timings and locations, through to the level of formality. A great designer, who is experienced, can help you achieve all of that.
A designer can help you to achieve your desired aesthetic and bring your vision to life.
Working with a stationery designer can help you to achieve your desired style and aesthetic, and allow you to bring your vision to life. A talented designer will understand trends, materials and complexities, and can inform you on all of the little things that you might not have thought about . They understand how to design your wedding invitation suite so that everything from the paper stock down to the fonts complement each other perfectly.
A good designer will utilise all the information available to them, from Pinterest boards filled with inspirational images of bridesmaids' dresses and floral arrangements, through to design trends, best practices and print methods.
Investing in professional wedding stationery is worth every penny.
It's not just a pretty piece of paper. Stationery is an investment, and it's one that you'll want to spend some time making sure you're happy with. Because it will last forever (and it can be kept as a souvenir from your special day), I always encourage my clients to think through every detail of their stationery carefully, down to the font style of their monogram through to the colour of the paper stock.
Focus on the details that are important to you and let a experienced designer take care of the rest. You can create something truly unique by working with a designer who has vast experience in their field.
