The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many couples to rethink their wedding plans, postponing their weddings into 2021 or opting for smaller, more intimate ceremonies with larger celebrations to follow.
Using our 2020 wedding collection as inspiration, we’ve reimagined some of our most popular designs as wedding announcements and paired them with coordinating invitations for receptions to follow at a later date.

Save the dates and invitations
If save the dates and invitations are the most important components of your stationery trousseau, you can easily take advantage of the 6+ printed piece promotion and still wow your guests with stunning stationery and stylish design. Not all weddings call for programs and menus, so don’t feel like you have to have them if they aren’t part of your stationery must-haves. These pieces will set the tone for your wedding and give your guests a preview of the celebration to come.

Traditional, formal invitation set
If you are hosting a very traditional, very formal wedding and want your stationery to reflect that, consider this combination of the most necessary pieces. Along with your invitation and printed outer envelope, a reply card and reply envelope are the most formal way to request a response from your guests. Keep your reception details separate from the invitation by including it on its own card (you’ll note whether or not there is a dress code on this card, as it’s most formal not to include that on your invitation). A direction card will help guests make their way to your ceremony and celebration.
To carry your wedding stationery style on the through the big day, be sure guests have a ceremony program detailing the who’s who of your wedding party and a rundown of the ceremony. At the reception, direct them to their seats with stylish place cards and get their mouths watering with menus detailing what is to come. Give them something fun (and functional) to take home with letterpress or foil stamped coasters. And don’t forget you’ll need to thank everyone for joining you on your special day. What better way than with coordinating thank you cards and envelopes?

Invitations, ceremony and beyond
If you’ve fallen in love with letterpress printing and want to get the most for your money, this combination will stretch your stationery style from the pre-wedding invitations all the way to the post-wedding thank yous. In addition to your invitations and printed envelopes, opt for a reply postcard (less formal but still effective). Include a program so your guests can follow along during your ceremony, and have coordinating thank you cards and envelopes to send out thanking them for their presence (and presents) on your big day.

Destination invitation set
Destination weddings often call for additional details to be included in the invitation package – your guests will need to know how to get there, where to stay and where to play, and they’ll be looking to you to help them prepare. Our pocketfolds are the perfect enclosure to keep all of these details organized for your guests – and they provide another place to showcase your wedding style. Letterpress print on them – foil stamp on them – or do both! Include a card (double sided if necessary) that gives all of the wedding details – like hotel accommodations, directions to the venue and rehearsal dinner and brunch locations. The pocket allows you to include additional cards if necessary, like maps to local hotspots or menus from the best places to grab a bite. If your destination wedding is an intimate affair with just the closest of family and friends, ask them to reply via your wedding website or email address to eliminate the need for the reply envelope.
