To truly and fully represent the significance of your upcoming nuptials, wedding stationery invitation sets often go beyond a simple Save the Date or Wedding Invitation. Many engaged couples, whether traditional or more contemporary, are looking for a complete wedding suite, featuring response cards, enclosure cards, guest books, and more.
With all those intricate details circulating your mind when planning your perfect day, it’s crucial to invest in a company that can effortlessly represent the beautiful and one-of-a-kind commitment between you and your future spouse.

PurpleTrail brings you the five must-have stationery items to create the ultimate wedding suite.
1. Wedding Invitations
The wedding invitation is the front runner of your wedding invitation set. Think about the time of year for your wedding, the feel of your venue—is it more of a rustic barn, or an elegant ballroom?—and your wedding colors. Your invitation can be as minimalistic or as grandiose as you prefer. Give your guests a sneak peak of the big day to come!
Browse popular categories like modern, rustic, elegant, or choose a themed invitation for a destination or holiday wedding. Enhance your invitation by choosing a real foil design or selecting a specialty trim. Choose a design to showcase your engagement photos, or keep it simple and elegant with no photo.
Remember, with PurpleTrail’s premium design tools, you can make additional edits to add photos, change the font style of the text, update an invitation’s color scheme to match your wedding colors, and more.
If you need more space for additional information or photos, or just want your invitation to really stand out, consider a trifold, quadfold, or booklet wedding invitation. These convenient options offer more room to truly illustrate your unique love story, with options to personalize with multiple engagement photos, meaningful quotes and memories, or additional accommodation and reception information.
The wedding invitation is the heart and core of your wedding stationery suite. With PurpleTrail’s endless customization options, you can create a custom, one-of-a-kind invitation that will leave your guests breathless.
2. Save The Dates
Save the Dates are perhaps one of the most crucial parts of your wedding invitation set, alongside the official wedding invite. It’s the first notice you’ll send to your guests to announce your wedding date, and often the location of your wedding.
Some couples skip sending a Save the Date if the wedding date is already coming up soon, or if they’re having a small and local celebration. But if you’re planning a big wedding or inviting out-of-town guests, a Save the Date is definitely recommended!
Not only do they help your guests make the arrangements so they’re available to celebrate with you, but they give your guests a sneak peak of your big day. Oftentimes they become a treasured keepsake that lives on the fridge or bulletin board of your closest friends and family.
Select a Save the Date with matching designs so the rest of your wedding suite can follow through, or mix and match with one of PurpleTrail’s many Save the Date designs to keep your guests on their feet.
Much like the process of selecting a wedding invitation design, think about the season of your wedding, your venue, and your colors or wedding theme. Browse various categories for floral, elegant, rustic, and seasonal invites, or upgrade your Save the Date to a premium real foil or specialty trim design. Show off your engagement photos or keep it simple with a non-photo design.
PurpleTrail’s design tools allow you to make additional edits to bring your unique ideas to life, like uploading photos, adding embellishments from their expansive artwork library, updating the color scheme, and experimenting with several font choices.
Treat your Save the Date as the official introduction or you and your future spouse’s lasting commitment to each other. Make it bold.
3. Response Cards
A traditional wedding stationery suite includes a separate response card so your guests can mail back their availability response to you. Many modern response cards also include a prompt for song suggestions that’ll get your guests on the dance floor, or to leave some advice for the future newlyweds. In addition, if you’re planning a sit-down dinner or have more than one entrée choice, a response card is a great way to get a headcount for each meal preference.
Select a response card that matches your Wedding Invitation and suite, or mix and match with a complementing design theme, like watercolor, floral, or simple.
4. Enclosure Cards
Enclosure cards can be utilized for several different purposes. Some couples like to provide extra informational cards for reception information—especially if your ceremony and reception are being held at two different locations—, directions to the venue(s), entrée selections, rehearsal dinner plans, or accommodation and gift registry information. If you have a lot of additional information to disclose and not much space on your official wedding invitations, enclosure cards are the best solution.
Choose an enclosure card that matches your wedding invitation design, or mix and match with popular style categories such as rustic, modern, simple, and floral.
5. Guest Books
Your wedding is one of the biggest and most memorable moments of your life. The best way to preserve these special memories is with a guest book. Loved ones who have gathered from far and wide to help celebrate your commitment to your future spouse can sign in, express their well wishes, share heartfelt memories, and offer meaningful, time-tested advice you can look back on for years to come throughout your married life.
As an added bonus, guest books are also a built-in registry, so you can keep track of your guests’ contact information and make your life a lot easier when it comes to writing out and sending thank you notes.
Choose from a diverse selection of inside page options that will best suit your needs, or create your own custom page, where the possibilities are endless. The customization doesn’t end there—just like PurpleTrail’s other premium wedding stationery, guest book designs are completely customizable to create a keepsake that’s perfectly and uniquely you. Decide between a sturdy and dependable coil-bound guest book, or a sewn-bound guest book, which features a clean hardbound spine and strong, library-quality sewn pages that always lay flat for an easy time writing.
Make your memory book shine with real foil-printed designs, or experiment with classic and contemporary themes like floral, greenery, and watercolor. When it comes to personalization, the possibilities are infinite. Whether you want to add just your names and wedding date, or photos, wedding dress sketch, quotes, and more, PurpleTrail’s online customization design tools make it easy.
Your wedding day will go down in history as the start of a beautiful commitment between you and your wife or husband to be. It’s important to represent such a meaningful love with style and grace, and have a friendly and supportive team behind you. Let PurpleTrail handle all your wedding stationery needs.
