One of my favorite parts about planning my $5,000 wedding was picking out the wedding stationery! From the save the dates to the invitations to the RSVPs, I LOVED picking out the colors, fonts, and design for my wedding suite. To me, the wedding stationery gave my guests a peek at what to expect at the wedding (Will it be colorful and bright? Elegant and chic? Or filled with handmade touches?). For many couples, the wedding stationery is a really special touch for their big day. But, it can be stressful to pick out just the right suite for their needs. Well, that’s the awesome thing about wedding stationery from Wedding Paper Divas – picking out and customizing stationery is SO easy and really fun. I love how easy Wedding Paper Divas makes finding wedding stationery!
