Before you begin ordering your wedding stationery, it's always a good idea to consider how these will be displayed on the actual day. This is your chance to get creative and try something a little different, plus it will save you the stress on the day if you know exactly how things will look.

To get you inspired, I have listed below some ideas for all the different types of wedding stationery and how best to style them. 

Escort cards

Escort cards can be styled beautifully on your special day and in so many way. They can also double-up as favours.

Depending on the time of year your get married can also provide inspiration. If you are having a winter wedding wedding, for example, why not hang Christmas baubles on a tree or hanging frame, each with their own name tag for guests? This could also be your wedding favour. Another idea is using decorated fir comes to slot escort cards into (and they will look so pretty sitting altogether on a table!) 

A summer wedding could be little plants; the plant you choose could have a meaning behind it, simply one you both love, or one that fits best with your wedding theme. Nice ideas here could be a little rosebud plant, cactus or a succulent or a mixture. Other ideas could be seed packets, or edible favours such as personalised biscuits with names on or jars of honey with personalised tags.

Place cards

Place cards can be displayed for guests in various ways to add a stylish touch to your special day. Using your cutlery is a subtle and effective way to do this. Other ideas are by using wine glasses to add place cards to, or having personalised menus with each guests name at the top. Your favours can also act as place cards if placed on each guests place setting with a tag with their name.

Wedding advice cards

Placed either on each guests place setting or on a dedicated table within your venue, advice cards are a fun way for guests to be as creative as they want with their advice! You are guaranteed to have an array of messages from your guests this way, from the funny to sentimental.

Physical objects 

Keen travellers? Music fans? Wine lovers?

Physical objects for your guests to sign is a creative and personal guestbook alternative – a globe, guitar, or big a bottle of champagne are all lovely ideas. An object is also a something you can incorporate into your home as a lovely memento of your day.
