As you start planning your wedding stationery, your invitations are likely your first thought. Invitations are ours, too! However, there are so many other pieces of stationery you'll need to have on hand before, during, and after your wedding day. Think about save-the-dates and shower invites before, programs and menus during, and thank you cards once your gorgeous wedding day has come and gone. There are a number of other stationery pieces we don’t want you to miss, so make sure to read about our top 10 below!

1. First, start building your wedding party. An invitation accompanied with a handwritten note will do the trick:
