Wedding stationery comes in so many different designs and types. Personalised and decorated stationery will often be kept as a keepsake by your guests as souvenirs of your special day for years to come.
If you have a particular theme in mind for your wedding, then you will want to make sure you have stationery to match. You should decide on colour, shape and size, a good typeface to ensure all your guests will be able to read the invitations. And you need to decide on the range of differing types of stationery you would like, i.e. save the date, invitations, RSVP cards, thank you cards, and so on.
Here’s some great ideas from businesses offering wedding stationery based in the West Midlands from places like Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Coventry, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Warwick, Shrewsbury and Stratford, whom you might want to get in touch with...

You've found your Duke and you're in the depths of wedding planning, but how can you incorporate one of the year's biggest trends into your big day? The highly-anticipated second series of Bridgerton has sent searches for Regency fashion and home decor soaring - and the wedding industry is seeing the impact, too.

1. Choose a Regency-era venue – "If you're at the very early stages of your planning and you're venue hunting, why not consider a Regency-era wedding venue - or better yet, one of the many UK filming destinations?" said Lisa.

Before you start ordering stationery, consider what themes and colour schemes you want at your wedding. From then, you can begin collecting invitation samples to see what you like best. Not only does this mean that you can see the invitations in real life and check out their quality, but you can also try a few different stationers and see what their service is like. I recommend choosing your invites before the rest of your stationery and then matching them accordingly, as you don't want to change your mind on your design halfway through your stationery journey.

It's going to be a big year for the wedding industry. Here are some of my trend predictions: Love stories and romantic literary greats will feature strongly in 2022 wedding trends. With the second series of Bridgerton set to air in March, Regency period fascination will find its way subtly into weddings, with literary-inspired touches and splashes of blue. Think of a quintessentially English cottage aesthetic and regal elegance. Perfect for the traditionalists amongst us. Many couples are already choosing earthy, natural colour palettes and moving away from the whites and pastels of old.

When it comes to wedding stationery, there is so much choice available and a variety of prices that it can certainly get overwhelming. Quality is very important as an invitation may look pretty online, but the actual feel of it may not be to your liking. Always do your research and get to know your supplier, talk about options and if they're local, arrange a consultation to see their products first hand. There are lots of ways to keep within your budget without jeopardising the design and quality. For instance, you could opt for a smooth card instead of a textured version but still have the benefits of a beautiful design. You can choose to have a personalised favour tag that also doubles up as a place name to save spending on both.
