Staring with the Save the Date, stationary have a very important role in weddings. The first thing is to set your theme, put in motion a set of ideas that fit your personality and style. The theme of the wedding and the season should also have a role to pick the stationary.
If you are having in mind a low budget wedding, there are hundreds of ways to save on your dream wedding save the dates, invitations, menus, etc. Doing it yourself is the most affordable way, even though there are many stores that have a small selection for sale and sometimes it will be more affordable at the end. Doing it yourself has more pros that you might think..for example, your costs will be as minimal as the cost of paper and ink and information can be changed until the last minute. The internet has a vast selection of designs that can be printed. If you have a very small wedding it is appropriate and very personal (like the wedding itself) to hand write your invitations.
