Q. We're looking for gorgeous stationery for our wedding, but we're not sure what style to go for or what we should be asking our suppliers – help!

A. Zoey Robins says: There's no denying that save the dates and invitations are the window to the wedding, the first little peek into what your guests might expect from your big day, the point where your wedding vision starts to become a reality.

We know that every couple, and by extension every wedding, is completely different. That's why having a colour scheme, flowers, wedding season, location and theme in mind, whether that's traditional, modern or themed, will help us in helping you determine stationery that's totally 'you'!

Most couples spend hours browsing the web for big day inspo, from wedding blogs to Pinterest boards, and we recommend bringing that inspiration to your supplier. This will help us piece together your design vision and ensure we're able to envision your dream aesthetic.

Our design team works closely with couples to ensure their wedding stationery is perfect, from save the dates to invitations, favour tags, placeholders and more. Customers are often happy to work from the opinion of our knowledgeable graphic team, offering advice on design to paper type, luxury embellishments and finishing options.

It's also worth considering whether your design will work with your desired paper type and whether you have any constraints surrounding size and, if unsure, ask for paper samples before you commit to placing an order.
