Wedding stationery disasters (and how to avoid them)

There are a few common wedding stationery pitfalls that it’s easy to fall into without some knowhow. Here’s our guide to the most common disasters, and how to steer clear!

1) Our stationery’s arrived and it’s got a typo in it [insert expletive here]

If your beautiful big-day stationery has arrived and has one (or more) mistakes in the copy, you’re bound to be upset. Make sure it doesn’t happen by asking your stationery supplier to send you a proof of the copy before they print the invites – all good stationery providers will be happy to do this. Get at least one other person to read over it before approving it – someone other than you and your groom is a good idea. Make sure you double-check important details such as ceremony times and venue postcodes, and be aware of misplaced apostrophes and common spelling mistakes. Printing off a copy of the proof is always a better idea than just looking onscreen, too.
