Here is a quick review of all the items that make your wedding paper trousseau. Whether you choose to include all the items or not is purely your choice, but it is good to consider each item and then include or reject it according to your needs. What is important to remember is that the way you present yourself on paper will give your guests a clue about your wedding. You can spend a small fortune on elegantly printed paper stock if you wish, but you don't have to. Most experts will agree that aside from the invitations and thank you notes, all other items are nice but optional.
The full paper trousseau can include the following: invitations, place cards, programs, thank you cards, announcements, save-the-date cards, escort cards, RSVP cards, reception cards, menu cards, cocktail napkins, cake napkins, dinner napkins, printed hang-tags for favors or personalized favor boxes, personal letterhead which includes your name, address, email, phone number(s) and wedding date for all vendor confirmations and a guest book.
Generally all printed items carry through the theme of the wedding with similar print styles and colors.
You can arrange with the US Postal Service to purchase wedding themed postage stamps for the mailings. There is no surcharge for official stamps. Or you can arrange with a commercial printed to have custom printed stamps that reflect your choice of design but expect to pay an additional charge for customization. You can order custom sealing stickers for invitation envelopes as well.
Paper trousseau items can be lovely, so if there is where you choose to invest some funds, that is your choice. For more information, call 605-348-8816 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
