Your Wedding Stationery Trousseau: A Complete Guide

Before the Wedding

Save the Date Cards
Sent at least three months before the wedding, these cards advise family and friends of your wedding plans and allow them to take your wedding date into consideration when making their own travel plans. While it’s nice to have your save the date cards match your invitation, it is not essential. They often simply reflect the spirit of the event.

Invitations and Response Cards

Rehearsal Dinner
The rehearsal dinner takes place on the night before the wedding and is given as a courtesy to the bride’s family (typically the groom’s family hosts this event, however the bride’s family or a close relative or friend may also host one). While an invitation to the rehearsal dinner should reflect the nature of the event, it should never compete with or upstage the wedding invitation.

Rehearsal dinner invitations are usually worded formally, but many times just first names are used. This less-formal style lets guests know how you, your fiancĂ© and your fiance’s parents wish to be addressed.

Day-Of Wedding Stationery Must-Haves

Wedding invitations should be ordered four to six months in advance of a the big day, so it’s no surprise that day-of stationery pieces aren’t top of mind for most couples. With so many details to think about, programs, menu cards and other accessories often end up getting ordered at the last minute. With a little planning, though, many of these items can get crossed of the list earlier rather than later. 
Which means more time for cake tasting.

Here is our list of day-of must-haves.
