Print in Weddings: Adding a Personal Touch to Your Special Day

Your wedding day is one of the most important and memorable days of your life. It's a celebration of love, commitment, and the beginning of a new chapter. As you plan every detail, you want to ensure that your wedding reflects your unique style and personality. One way to achieve this is by incorporating print elements into your wedding.

Print has long been a popular choice for weddings, and for good reason. It adds a touch of elegance, sophistication, and personalization to your special day. From invitations to programs, menus to place cards, there are countless ways to incorporate print into your wedding.

Before the Big Day
Your wedding invitation sets the tone for your entire event. It's the first glimpse your guests will have of your wedding, so you want it to be memorable. Consider opting for custom-designed invitations that reflect your wedding theme or color scheme. You can choose from a variety of printing techniques, such as letterpress, foil stamping, or digital printing, to create a truly unique and beautiful invitation suite.

Use your wedding invitation as the base point for the 'brand' of your wedding. Keep colors, fonts and imagery consistant for all of your wedding assets. Before the big day, use Save the Date cards for rehersal dinners and showers or teas. Attach a coordinated RSVP card to prompt your guests to respond with important information.  

Print for the Big Day
Once your guests have received their invitations, it's time to think about the day-of print materials.

Programs are a great way to guide your guests through the ceremony and provide them with important information about the bridal party, readings, and any special traditions. You can design programs that match your invitations or create a separate design that complements your overall wedding aesthetic.

Menus are another print element that can add a touch of elegance to your reception. Whether you opt for individual menus at each place setting or a large menu displayed at the entrance of the reception, it's an opportunity to showcase your culinary choices and add a personalized touch to the dining experience.

Place cards are not only functional but also a chance to get creative with print. From traditional tented cards to unique escort card displays, there are endless possibilities to incorporate print into your seating arrangements. Consider using calligraphy or custom-designed place cards that double as favors for your guests to take home.

Personalized signage is another way to incorporate print into your wedding. From welcome signs to directional signs, you can guide your guests and add a decorative element to your venue. Consider using large-scale prints or chalkboard signs for a rustic touch, or opt for elegant acrylic signs for a more modern look.

After the Big Day
Don't forget about the thank you cards. After your wedding, it's important to express your gratitude to your guests for celebrating with you. Custom-designed thank you cards allow you to add a personal touch and show your appreciation for their presence and gifts.

Lastly, If you have received high resolution photos and printing rights from your photographer, there are a number of ways to use your wedding photos for personalize home decor, including canvas or wood prints, mugs, pillows, coasters, or traditional standard size framed prints. 

Incorporating print into your wedding adds a layer of personalization and elegance that will make your special day even more memorable. Whether it's through custom-designed invitations, programs, menus, place cards, signage, or thank you cards, print allows you to showcase your unique style and create a cohesive look and feel throughout your wedding. So, embrace the beauty of print and let it be a part of your love story.
