How to Save on Your Wedding Stationary – Part 2
Welcome to Part Two of this blog series! Tip #2 for saving money on your wedding stationary? Plan Ahead: Do Not Wait!
Order early and save yourself stress, time, and money!
By planning several months in advance, and purchasing your items well ahead of your wedding day, you will spare yourself stress, time, and money. You will have time to find the items which best fit for your budget, colors and theme.
The days and weeks before your wedding day will be extremely busy with last minute fittings, out of town guests, and appointments with your vendors and all kinds of unexpected stresses. The time you will have to work on proofing programs, or sorting out 100’s of guests for seating will be greatly diminished. Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time for this process.
You’ll be happier with the products you receive
Many items such as monograms, programs, invitations and place cards take several weeks to create and perfect and may require a few revisions to be sure they are just error free. By planning ahead, you will have time to make changes to be sure they are exactly what you envision for your wedding. Don’t settle for something you do not really love. There are too many wonderful choices available to not be thrilled with you stationary!
If you order your stationary early, you can avoid paying charges for overnight shipping and rush order fees. (Some vendors require 4-6 weeks for delivery) Wouldn’t you rather spend that $50+ on something fun?!
Spread out the costs
Order your monogram and invitations first, they set the tone for all your other stationary. By purchasing these items early on, you’ll be able to break out the cost of your stationary items over time. You can also avoid having all those pesky bills and payments to your vendors come due on the same day. Unless you get a big rush from procrastinating, plan and purchase well ahead of your wedding date! Your budget (and your sanity) will thank you!
