Stationery & Decor: How to Tie It Together

One of the first decisions a couple makes in regard to their wedding vision often revolves around the stationery decision — what kind of invitations do we want to welcome our guests to our big day? That's often an easy-ish choice … but what isn't so easy is pulling together a cohesive idea that flows well from stationery through to the reception decor. We've got your back. Here are five stunning pieces of stationery and the little goodies that will help complement those paper goods:

Classic Black and Sparkles

Silver sparkle adds a modern twist to the very classic black-and-white wedding theme. Wedding Paper Divas' Diamond Sky invitation is the perfect piece of stationery to set the tone for a traditionally modern celebration, likely in a gorgeous loft or chic ballroom. Pretty glittered frames pull double duty as escort cards and a shiny favor. String lights are a given for nearly any wedding celebration, but these wire cage lights add an unexpected element. Give your guests the dish with Wedding Paper Divas' sleek Gilded Romance menus. To top it all off, spread silver confetti along the table tops, or if your venue allows use it during your sendoff.

Gorgeous Geometry

I've been dying over the geometric shapes that have been popping up everywhere. Start with a simple and tasteful Krafty Angles invitation from Wedding Paper Divas. A geometric garland makes the perfect backdrop for your ceremony or photo booth. Strategically placed geometric terrariums add a little greenery without taking away from the eye-catching decor. Toast to your love with stemless wine glasses adorned with triangles. Keep your wedding programs simple with streamlined typography, like these Modern Initials programs from Wedding Paper Divas. Colorful geometric ceramic coasters make a great wedding favor that will surely add a little pop to your guests' home. A fun origami ball adds a little something extra and eye catching to your tablescape.

A City Lovers' Celebration

When two city lovers fall in love, it's only natural to celebrate! Show some hometown pride with Wedding Paper Divas' Chicago Cityscape invitations. Skyline-etched wine glasses double as great take-home favors for your nearest and dearest. Thread napkins at each placesetting through these sweet rings or display them among your centerpieces. If you have a love for many cities, use each one as a table number card with city-themed table numbers.

A Boom-Pow Kinda Love

Your love is the kind that could leap over tall buildings and save the world on the regs … plus you just kind of dig super heroes. Sunburst wedding invitations proffers a subtle nod to what's to come. When it times to toast and cut the cake, do so as a dynamic duo with this champagne flute and cake cutting set. Spell it out with your initials, made out of comic book images (natch). Instead of table numbers, use these Etsy action cards — as seen in the comic books and old TV series. Comic book heart confetti from Etsy shows your love for one another … and your favorite super heroes!

As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born. I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
