Don’t forget your invite…

Photographs are the most important way for you to permanently capture your wedding day for the rest of your lives.

I noticed this year that for the most part couples didn’t bring their wedding stationery (or papercraft) with them on the day which means it doesn’t form part of your official wedding photographs.   That’s a shame because most people spend a lot a time making sure their stationery fits in with the style for the rest of the day and whether you spend hours DIYing your stationery suite or working with a bespoke designer, that planning forms an important part of your memories of the day.

Take a look at these pins on our stationery pinterest board and you’ll see how great a stationery set can look when photographed by a professional:

If you’re interested in having your wedding published in a wedding magazine or blog, they will definitely want to see pics of your wedding stationery – so put it on your (long!) list of things to bring with you.   Make sure you keep spares of your Save the Dates, the actual invite, the info cards, the RSVP, orders of service, running orders, menu cards, drinks menus and anything you else you decide to give your guests to let them know about your big day.   If you have special envelopes, bring those too.   You may not have some of these items but try and bring an example of everything you have.

Alternatively before you get completely swamped by wedmin, you could send us a complete set of stationery by post ahead of your day and we’ll make sure your photographer has the time and space to capture it all for you on the day.

You might also want to think about asking your florist to include one or two single blooms or a spray of foliage that you can give your photographer so they can set up some beautiful shots of your stationery that tie in perfectly with the rest of the shots on the day.

It would be such a shame to miss this photo opp!
