Where to find it?

There is actually many ways of getting your dreamed items. It will all depend on your budget as well as the time and resources available. The chipest but also most time consuming option will probably be DIY. You can look for some step-by-step tutorials on YouTube (www.youtube.com). Preparing your own wedding items with your future husband or best friends may be fun and relaxing. However, if the wedding is close, you don't have enough time or simply don't want to do it, you will probably have to buy it.

To find the items you can attend some wedding fairs, visit wedding markets, your local shops or go online. If your budget is very limited, you can check Amazon or eBay. If you want them to be more sophisticated, I would recommend established companies such as Horizon Team LTD. Not only they have unique and beautiful products in many languages but also years of experience. They also prepare custom orders and offer professional help and advice.

Before ordering:

Ask for free samples or set a meeting. I would also strongly recommend visiting Facebook sites where the companies usually put more pictures and you can find customers' opinions.

Let's get started!

Now you know that you can find some beautiful items made of paper easily. For sure they will make your wedding day even more memorable and help to create an amazing atmosphere. They also don't necessarily require huge amounts of money. So... Let's start discovering some options!

UNIQUE Wedding Invitations

An obvious one. However it is worth attention! Many invitations available in the market are not very nice or are just nice. However, with a little effort, you can find something amazing! I recommend buying items that match to your wedding style. Browse the themes, choose an unique one and I guarantee your guests will feel valued and stunned. It will also create a subject for starting a conversation with the not well known people.

The most common invitations are folded or scrolled. To pack the folded you can use envelopes, for the scrolled - dust-jackets or tubes. Check the handmade paper ones - they are beautiful, stylish, original and the feeling when you touch them is just amazing! You can go for burned edges as well If done properly, looks breathtaking.

Wax seals

A perfect compliment to your invitation. All the important documents and messages used to have wax seals on them. The invitation carry an amazing news, the seal stresses it adding uniqueness and making an additional attraction for your beloved.

You can choose from variety of types, they can have gravered initials, date, designs, usually there are many different coulours available. Seals can be placed on ropes, ribbons or stamped on paper. You can put some of them on the invitation and take off many times without damaging and some of them you can break - just like in the past times. It all depends on your preferences and imagination!

If you loved wax seals, invitations are not the only items where it can be placed. You can use it for almost any of the ones described here - envelopes, tubes, place cards and many, many more!

RSVP

RSVP - from french 'répondez s'il vous plaît'. A little card collecting all the needed information - each invited person can tick if he/she is coming, if he/she is taking a guest or has any dietary requirements. Proves to be very helpful in wedding organising.

You can print a short note at the bottom of the invitation asking people to call you before a certain date but a much more elegant way is attaching a separate card to the invitation. You can put it into a small decorative envelope and ask your guests to send it back to you. I recommend putting a bit earlier time than really needed which will prevent stress in case of someone not sending it on time.

Table plans

A perfect way to get everything organised - all the tables with the names of guests on the one big card. Looks very decorative and prevents unwanted mess.

Advised is picking a table plan layout and colours matching the ones on the invitations. You can usually ask for customed table plans.
