Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
Wedding coming up faster than you can believe?
But of course you’d still like to add some special touches to the big day… no problem!
Check out our ideas and examples for some unique last-minute watercolor wedding stationery items!
Welcome Notes, Itineraries and Maps
Welcome guests when they arrive with a schedule for the weekend or introduction to the area. Get creative with colorful icons, or a watercolor map of the area or property! We have done many different styles of these over the years. Some can include quite a lot of details about local activities, or they can be super simple and just let everyone know where to be, and when.
For destination celebrations or unique experiential venues, watercolor maps are a fun item to include in a welcome bag. An illustration of the area can be combined with a short schedule, or brief details along with each event icon. Make sure to include the locations of each wedding activity.
If you’ve got your reception dinner solidified, why not add a colorful menu to each place setting, to let everyone know what they’ll be enjoying? Our watercolor florals are always a popular design choice, and can fit many different wedding aesthetics. Choose a few to coordinate with your color palette, send us the wording, and not much else is needed to create something beautiful.
Looking to elevate the day with programs or an order of service? Try one of our different formats that suits your style best! Some ceremonies are longer, while others are short and sweet, let guests know what to expect. A pretty hand painted program also makes a nice extra keepsake from the day. This is also a great place to add special notes to family and friends, as an extra “thank you” for sharing the day with you.

Digital Seating Charts
Going a little crazy with the seating list? Have us design and format your seating chart, then send you a PDF file to print before the wedding. It will save time in production and shipping. We can even design the artwork ahead, then fill in with your seating assignments once those are finalized a bit closer to the date. Just don’t forget to leave yourself a few days to get it printed and picked up locally before the wedding! (This is a great task to hand off to your planner).
Check out a few examples of seating charts in this post for typical layouts.
Thank You Notes
Maybe the easiest of all, since you won’t really need them till after the wedding!
Of course a hand written thank you note to each guest is a must, but why not create something custom to stand out from a simple card? Choose from our wide range of watercolor florals, or have us create a custom illustration of your venue, destination, or yourselves! If planning has been tough and there wasn’t much time for other details, this is a great option to wrap up the whole event with a personal touch for all your friends and family.
