What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Always plan as far ahead as possible. Save the Day cards should be designed, printed and distributed to your guest as soon as you can - remember, getting family and friends together all at once is like herding cats - the more notice people have the better, invitations can then go out anything from 12 - 6 weeks before your wedding day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
2 dozen white Doves
Describe your typical process with a couple.
After an initial phone consultation with Carole our Wedding Stationery specialist, we normally recommend a face to face meeting to go through the details of your requirements, this can be here at Badger Press or online. A design brief is taken and we will submit designs to the couple to fit in with the brief provided and the required budget. after viewing the first proofs any amendments are made and shown for final approval. Once this is given the stationery is normally produced within seven days, depending on the complexity of the job. Often the focus will be on the invitation initially with the Order of Service, Place Cards, Menus and table plans to follow on later.

How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?
Often the design can convey romance on its own, but some clients like to personalize their stationery with a few words about themselves and their love for each other. Quite often 'less is more' and an over complicated design can look a little messy and 'over the top'. Classy is generally the order of the day.
