Everyone has different needs for their wedding day stationery but there are some items that are essential. Below I have listed the “must have items” and the “would be nice to have items.”
Essential Day of Stationery:
1. Large Seating Chart and/or Personalized place cards
2. Table Numbers/Names
Non-Essential Day of Stationery:
3. Gift Tags
The most important thing is to let your guests know where they will be seated. There are essentially three ways you can do this.
1. A large seating chart with table numbers on each table. (Place cards are optional)
2. A table at the entrance with the place cards for each guest with their name and table number.
3. Provide a master list of the seating assignment to a couple of trustworthy people to advise guests of their table when they arrive.
If your budget allows having menus on the tables is a nice touch. Gift tags on your bonbonniere, also adds a decorative touch to the table. I like to think of day of stationery as part of your wedding decor, along with the flowers and candles.
