Wedding day details are so important and often times overlooked. We aren’t talking caterer coordination or what time the guests should arrive. We are talking decor details like centerpieces, lights, and place settings. These details aren’t what your wedding day is about, but if you’re celebrating something beautiful and amazing you want the atmosphere to match!

Most brides think of the standard stuff like linens, flatware, and flowers. But wedding day stationery is actually a key factor in the magic of your wedding day decor! Wedding programs, menu cards, table numbers, and place cards are all wedding day stationery pieces that will take your ceremony and reception to the next level. Here’s why:
Wedding programs and table numbers, in particular, serve nicely when it comes to the flow of the day. Programs give guests all the information they need in order to find their seats, prepare for the ceremony and follow along, and make their way to the festivities to follow with ease. Table numbers are nice to have so that guests can find their seats easier. For a larger guest count, more prominent table numbers will serve best and for a more intimate gathering, something subtle should do just fine!
Everyone wants to know about the menu. Who is the caterer? Is there a cocktail of the night? What flavor is the cake? These are all questions that your guests will want answers to. So, rather than keeping them eager to feast, providing menus is a nice way to keep chatter at bay and guests satisfied. There are many ways to incorporate a menu. You can put everything on a larger menu or you could do a drinks and dessert menu for example. Depending on the style of the reception, the type of food served, and the bar situation, couples have tons of options to get creative with their menu cards and guests will appreciate it!
Guests are there to celebrate you and your other half, but everyone secretly wants to be acknowledged by the blushing bride which is why place cards for a wedding are a must! Name cards can be placed on a table at the entrance for guests to find or you can set up a chart for people to reference and place everyone’s name card at their place setting. This is a fun detail to add to your tablescape and it will make each of your guests feel like royalty.
