Gorgeous Wedding Stationery Ideas

Your wedding stationery needs to be fully coordinated with your wedding theme – and if you want your Big Day to be centered on a vintage concept, your invitations and day-of stationery will make no exception from the aforementioned rule.

How do you create gorgeous wedding stationery? We have some pretty ideas for you – read on if you are looking for some inspiration.



  •  Scrapbook-inspired. Looking for a cute, feminine, yet sentimental way of designing your wedding stationery? How about creating a design that’s inspired by old-school scrapbooks? Not only does this give you the opportunity to add a few emotional elements into the wedding invitations, but they will also have that cute 60s vibe everyone loves.
  •   Chalkboard-inspired. Remember how all couples used chalkboard signs for their wedding décor? Well, that’s still trendy – but if you want to push it to a whole new level, you can use the same inspiration for your wedding stationery. With an antique-looking “frame”, your invitations will look absolutely charming!
  •  Vintage garden-inspired. Since it’s summer outside, some of you may want to have a garden wedding with vintage notes. And yes, you can totally coordinate your stationery with that kind of theme too! With the right pastel and vintage-looking colors, a garden-themed wedding stationery design can win everyone’s hearts – both before, and during the Big Day.
  • Retro diner-inspired. Want your wedding to be filled with color? Searching for pop-art and 50s-inspired wedding stationery designs? Think of all those adorable retro diner graphics and incorporate them into your wedding invitations and day-of stationery. Guests will love the idea!


If you want to make sure all of your wedding details are perfectly coordinated with the entire concept, and if you want to make sure your Big Day is truly amazing from all points of view, hire B.A Bride Wedding and Event Planning. Leave your wedding planning into our experienced hands – it will be unforgettable!

Top Attire Tips for Wedding Guests

You may definitely not want to feel like the most important person in the room when attending a wedding – but from this to feeling underdressed (or even overdressed), there is a very long way. How to make sure you dress properly to the weddings you’ve been invited to this summer? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.



  •        Read the invitation – it will almost always contain information about a dress code. Because the invitation space is limited, you may not get very specific rules from reading this – but you might find them on the couple’s wedding website, or by simply researching what a specific dress code means.
  •        For instance, “casual attire” means that you can leave the tuxedo (and even suit) home and dress in something a bit more relaxed – such as dress pants and a shirt, or a nice low-key elegant dress. However, it DOES NOT mean that you are allowed to come to the wedding wearing jeans (unless the couple specifies this as part of their wedding theme).
  •        Furthermore, no matter what dress code you have to follow, make sure your clothes are tasteful and nice. You don’t need to dress expensive – but keeping it low-toned, not flashy, and not overly provocative can go a long way. The bride and the groom are the stars of the show – you surely don’t want to steal their spotlight with a dress that’s too flashy or a tuxedo in very bright colors, do you?

Can You Skip Inviting Family to the Wedding?

Planning a wedding is never easy – and one of the hardest parts is creating a guest list that makes everyone happy (you, your parents, and everyone else present at the wedding). For example, some of you may think you can never skip inviting extended family members to the wedding – but, as problematic as this may be, you can actually avoid doing this altogether.

How to act when you don’t want distant relatives to be invited at your wedding? We have some tips for you – read on and find out more.



·        First and foremost, be completely and utterly honest about this. Dusting it under the carpet will only generate more problems – so, whenever you are asked, simply be honest and say you don’t want to invite extended family because you don’t know them or because it will push you over your budget. It may be difficult for your parents to accept this, but they will eventually understand you.
·        Furthermore, keep in mind that you should not be rude about it. Avoid fighting, stand your ground, and keep the same explanation for everyone – doing all this will help you avoid too much drama and resentment.
·        Lastly, don’t forget that you do invite a lot of family members too – make the entire wedding experience totally unforgettable for them. Welcome bags for out of town guests, excellent food and drinks at the wedding, quality entertainment – they all help creating memories everyone will cherish for a long time to come. Make this a happy event for your guests – just as it is for you too!

Choose the perfect wedding photographer

Your wedding photos should look amazing – after all, you want them to reveal how beautiful, magical, and unique your entire Big Day felt, right? Of course, it is crucial for you to hire a truly dedicated wedding photographer – but how do you make the selection?

We’ve gathered some tips for you to keep in mind when searching for the perfect wedding photographer – so read on and find out more.



  •  Think of your budget. We will be completely honest here: most quality wedding photographers are quite expensive. Sure, there are options for every budget – but it is very important that you are aware of the fact that, in this niche, you really do get what you pay for. Plus, it is also crucial that you read all the terms of your contract, so that you know exactly what you pay for.
  •  Think of communication. You should be able to feel completely comfortable around your wedding photographer – otherwise, your discomfort will actually transpire in the pictures. Also, your photographer should be able to give you tips of advice (e.g. what poses work best for you, and so on). 
  • Think your wedding style. Every photographer has their own style – and it is very important that you start working with someone who understands your wedding concept and can relay it beautifully in the pictures they take. Take a close look at their portfolio and see if they can shoot photos in a style that really suits you and your Big Day!

How to plan a long distance wedding

Long distance wedding planning can be even more difficult than planning a wedding at home (or at least in close vicinity to it). However, it can definitely be done – especially if you keep in mind the following tips:


  • There’s a list of things to do “here” and a list of things to do “there”. Write down your tasks and see which of them can be done at home, and which of them will require for you to travel to your wedding location. For instance, you can buy your wedding dress and the bridesmaids’ gifts at home, but you should definitely meet face to face with your florist, pastry chef, and photographer.
  • The simpler and more minimalist your wedding is, the easier it will be for you to handle all the small details involved in planning the big day – regardless of where you may be located and where your wedding will take place.
  •  You will have to make quick decisions – but that doesn’t mean you have to make them rash too. Think things through, decide on the spot when needed, but make sure you only make choices that are 100% compatible with the rest of the wedding.
  • Sometimes you will have to let go. There will be times when things will simply not go as you planned them to – but it is essential to let go of these moments, move with what you have, and genuinely enjoy this utterly unique and amazing day in your life.

Choosing gifts for your bridesmaids

You definitely love your bridesmaids and you are highly appreciative of the considerable efforts they’ve put into making you happy on (and before!) your wedding day. Therefore, you want to show them how much they mean to you by offering them the best gifts possible.

How to do that? How to actually choose marvelous bridesmaids’ gifts from the myriad of options available? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  •       Make it thoughtful. Your bridesmaids will appreciate a meaningful gift a million times more than something expensive, but impersonal. Think of gifts that define your relationship and their style –it doesn’t have to be ultra-expensive to mean a lot to your bridesmaids!
  •        Don’t forget about the little ones. Just because they don’t bear the official “bridesmaid” title, it doesn’t mean flower girls don’t deserve a nice gift. Choose something cute and age-appropriate for the most adorable member of your wedding party – she will always remember it!
  •        Make it unique and useful. Planning a wedding in the cooler season? Offer your bridesmaids shawls or wraps. Want to make sure they will all be able to dance even as the night falls? Offer them cute flats to match with their attires! Want your special ladies to feel glamorous and stunning? Pay for their hairstyling and make up services! There are a ton of useful and beautiful gifts you settle on!
  •       Last, but definitely not least, keep it a surprise. None of your bridesmaids should know about their gifts – not even the Maid of Honor. So, this task is entirely on you – make it personal and sprinkle it with your endless love!

How to stretch your wedding budget

Your wedding budget is of the utmost importance – and although you might feel tempted to spend too much on the big day, the truth is that this can attract a lot of financial trouble later on. Do you really want to step into your married life drowned in debt and money issues? Probably not – and this is precisely why we have gathered some of the most important things for you to know about stretching your wedding budget. Read on to find out more.



  •        Don’t book a separate ceremony site. Chances are your wedding venue has a really nice spot where you can have your ceremony – and it will cost much less to rent both the ceremony and the reception spaces as a “package”.
  •       Don’t spend too much on expensive wedding décor. You can add uniqueness and personality to your wedding day by bringing in personal items that are truly meaningful for you as a couple. Guests will love this!
  •        Can’t spend too much on the drinks? Add a bit of originality to them by coloring them in unusual colors. You can even have them match your wedding color scheme!
  •       Flowers are of quite important, but you don’t have to settle on imported blooms. Choose whatever is in season, focus on large, beautifully arranged bouquets. Also, make sure not to overspend on the vessels either – you can pull off stunning arrangements without extra-pricy vases.


·        Last, but definitely not least, book your venue off-season. Not only will it be more special to have an early spring, fall, or winter wedding – but it will also cost a lot less than a full-summer event.
