Wedding stationery is used to convey certain messages - for example, to announce your wedding and invite guests, to let them know where they will be sitting at your reception and to thank them for coming after the celebration. Not only is it a practical means of communicating, but it's also an extension of your theme and a reflection of your personal style.
