For most couples, there’s no bigger or (hopefully) better day than their wedding. While the day itself is (again, hopefully) enjoyable, the build-up can be stressful, to say the least. There’s a huge amount to organise and one of the most important pre-wedding tasks is the design and print of the wedding stationery. There’s certainly no shortage of printers offering cheap wedding invitations in Ireland. Whether you’re a professional wedding planner, designer or if you’re designing wedding stationery for yourself or a friend, you’ll know just how important it is to get everything just right for the happy couple. Here are a few tips that might help reduce the stress.
A little research can go a long way
Let’s face it, you’re not the first person in Ireland tasked with designing wedding stationery. We’re not suggesting you just take someone else’s wedding invitations and change the names of the bride and groom (especially if they’re on the invite list) but you can always draw inspiration and get ideas from the work of others. Creatives do this all the time and it can be much more productive than just staring at a blank screen or page waiting for inspiration.
Get an idea of style
Find out what sort of wedding it is. Is there a theme? What does the couple do? How did they meet? Before you start any design job you’ll get a brief from the customer and a wedding’s no different. Talk to the couple and find out what they like or dislike. It will save you time in the long run and a good brief means they’ll get wedding invitations and stationery that’s personal to them.
These days many couples are moving away from traditional weddings and the stationery can reflect that. If the couple seems a little more adventurous showcase your creativity with more daring design styles that are a bit out of the ordinary. And who knows, you might even carve a niche for yourself.
Don’t stop at wedding invitations
There’s so more to wedding stationery than just invitation printing. Wedding menus, wedding thank you cards and wedding stickers are just a few types of stationery that are increasingly popular in Ireland so don’t be afraid to suggest them. Place cards, order of service and belly bands are great added extras too, both for them and for you.
