Our Wedding Stationery

Our Wedding Stationery! Cards, invites, coasters and all!

small

So for wedding #1, we customised a whole bunch of stationery and stuff to the theme Eat, Drink & Be Married and in the following color palette:

We initially wanted everything tiffany colored but with so many vendors involved and because this robin egg blue shade is such a bitch to get right, we decided to use a palette instead. If you’re very anal, you can get it printed in pantone code but that will cost you a fortune (if I am not wrong, at least 5-6 times more than usual.)

And I was very fortunate to have my sister’s contact Kayson design all my collateral for me. She is AMAZING. Really. Pleasant, efficient (she replies my emails in under an hour omg) and helps me to settle with the printers the type of paper etc too. Highly recommended by me! Email - ksonsandratay(at)gmail.com.

So we designed with her the following:

Wedding Cards

We did the copywriting ourselves. The menu selection thing is meant to be the boy’s idea of a joke - my friends and I still don’t find it funny but his friends found it hilarious and loved it. :/

Once the cards were finalized, we used that as a “base” design for the other collateral.

Dinner menu that we mailed out with the wedding cards so our guests could pick their choice of mains.

Menus to be placed at the tables for each guest:

The only difference between this and the one we mailed out is the Eat, Drink & Be Married watermark and the beverage list below:

We did this whole US AT AGE X thing using our baby photos :) Kson so helpfully went to cut and paste all the photos.

PS, all the pictures are not the official pics from my photographer and taken off Facebook and Instagram so they don’t look very… perfect.

Wedding Signage

Kson did up 2 versions for us and we loved both so much, I ended up using both. One for each entrance of the venue lol.

And parking signage.

Placecards

We wanted to write personalized messages to all our guests so our placecards actually doubled up as thank you cards. Kson did up for me 2 designs:

We chose the first one :)

Placed these cards in cream or tiffany envelopes and wax sealed them.

Coasters

I also ordered wedding coasters from foryourparty.com - they are based in the UK so shipping wasn’t exactly cheap :/ Crazy things bridezillas do for our wedding.

Wedding Favors

I loovveeee York patties (I love anything choc-mint actually) so when I chanced upon the option of giving away personalised York patties on David's Bridal, I was insanely happy. They do not ship to Singapore I think (because the chocs will melt!) but thankfully the boy’s sister’s studying at NYU so I had them shipped to her in New York and she brought them back with dry ice when she returned for our wedding.

Something like that.

Just realised this is the ONLY pic I have of the chocolates :( Hopefully when the photog gives me the pics, I’ll have a nicer version!

Calligrapher

As you can tell, the boy and I have very bad handwriting. So we actually engaged the help of a very talented calligrapher, Clarence.

Soooo pretty :)

My cards on The Straits Times lol.

Lace Envelopes

Our cards then went into these pretty lace envelopes I got from ETSY :)

Wax Seal Kit

Got a few peeps asking where I got them - ETSY again!

Slave labor two days before the wedding.

Mad Libs

We got our guests to fill up these mad libs (the rest of the funny ones here) and I had bought this template from ETSY!

Candy Bar

Mr & Mrs were soooo efficient. All I did was to send them the colour palette and my wedding card design so they can theme their candy bar to my wedding accordingly. And I think they did an amazing job!

Love the idea of our photo gallery :)

Shanghai Night wedding

Wedding #2 was sooooo much easier in comparison! All we had was a ching chong card designed & printed at T Dragon - the most red & gold and full of Xi card we could get, with the theme being Shanghai Night ;)

But we also included this dress code guide to jazz things up a little.

I think that should be all the stationery/ related stuff I had for my wedding. Honestly it was quite a lot to handle, so for brides-to-be, if you’re thinking of personalizing your invites/ entire wedding, please start early so you’ll have enough time to go back and forth with the vendors. I enjoyed about a year of engagement but proper planning wise, I’ll say about 7 months.

But if you ask me, I have absolutely zero regrets about going through all that hassle :)
