I am stuck with all this paper lately and can’t quite think of what things I will need to print out, make, etc. This is what I can think of:
-Invites (obvious one!) and thank you cards.
-Escort Cards or Place Cards or Seating Chart (not sure which one yet)
-Some sort of “share your pics” card
-Program Fans (hopefully)
-Possibly guest book pages…
What are you doing?

Our STDs were magnets, so they sort of don’t count :).

@M.Ruder: Oh I want to do I spy cards! I forgot about those.
We are doing chalkboard table numbers, and menu.
I think we will need some signage for desserts that we are making. But, should those be paper cards or printable labels, or ? I will have to start googling to see what people do. Maybe they don’t put signs out beside their desserts?

My FI’s cousin did a pie buffet around their cake and had signs. I think for desserts you should. Information is power =) You could do chalkboards as well =)
although most desserts are self-explanatory i guess. =)

So far I have:
- Invitation Suite- Invite, Information Card, and RSVP
- Cocktail Napkins- stamping these (don’t know if this counts)
- Bar Menu
- Guest Book Table Sign
- Drink Stirrers- these involve paper or washi tape haven’t decided yet
- Welcome Bags- Iron on Transfers for bags
- Welcome Letter/ Info
- Bridal Party Schedule
- Day of Time Line
- Bridesmaid Newseltters
- Labels, tags, etc. for welcome bag items
- Photo booth sign
- Photo Sharing Cards
- Envelope Liners
- Kid’s Boxes- We have about 10 kids under the age of 10 and we are putting together gable boxes with their names on them, that include snacks, juice, small toy, and crayons
I think that’s it. I know my list is long, but I figured I should put everything on there. I am also toying with the idea of doing a cake flavor sign.

@M.Ruder: I love this idea. I am totally stealing it and putting a couple different ones on each table

@Kcoleybear: Thank you for this awesome list!! I forgot about bar menu cards! Also, I would really love to hear more about your stamping cocktail napkins? Sounds cool!!! What are gable boxes? We have, yes you are hearing this right, 20 children under 13 at our wedding. Yup! So, little bags or boxes will be an excellent idea! I think I will get colouring pages printed out, crayons, etc.
