When most brides think of their future wedding stationery, they mostly picture items like save-the-dates, invitations, RSVP cards, and thank-you cards. But there are two other elements of wedding stationery that serve an important purpose for your big day. Including orders for programs and menus with the rest of your wedding stationery will not only ensure that the theme and style of your events stays consistent through all the various materials, but will also help guests feel more informed about what’s going on.
Including programs as part of your wedding stationery is helpful for wedding guests to keep them informed about the schedule of events throughout the day as well as provide other useful information. Programs are a great place to include details about the wedding party for guests who may not be familiar with friends and family members on the bride and groom’s side. It can also be the perfect place to explain any religious customs for guests as well as information or fun facts that are important to the bride and groom. If your ceremony and event are going to be held in two different venues, printing a map on the back of program can help make sure everyone arrives at the correct location.
If you will be hosting a seated wedding dinner that offers guests options for appetizers, main courses, or desserts, it’s almost essential to provide some sort of menu at the table so guests can decide on their selection before the waiter takes their order. Menus are also a great place to include specific information about the food being served, such as if it is vegetarian, vegan, Kosher, organic, etc.
So when it comes to ordering your wedding stationery, don’t leave out some of the smaller, yet equally important elements that will make sure your big day is just as enjoyable for your guests as it is for you. With more than 24 years of industry experience, the Creative Weddings team can help you design and customize programs and menus for your wedding that define your style, customs, and culture.

The lighting of the unity candle is a more traditional ceremony that is very meaningful in Christian wedding ceremonies. However, it has been adopted as a symbol of unity in many modern weddings. The unity candle is lit by the bride and groom from two separate candles that represent the union of the families. Often the mothers of the couple light the family candles, then the bride and groom use their respective family candles to light the unity candle together. This symbolizes the unity of the couples family and creation of a new family. It can also symbolize the union of two heart’s flaming love joining together and igniting one true love. It is the perfect ceremony if you are planning an indoor wedding or a traditional church ceremony.
Many couples that are planning an outdoor wedding opt for the unity sand ceremony set, as a unity candle ceremony can be disrupted by the wind. The sand ceremony set is also perfect at beach wedding ceremonies or for any beach lover. It also works well if small children are involved in the ceremony, as it is a safe option as opposed to fire. The ceremony is performed with the symbolic blending of two or more different-colored sand into one vase. The sand ceremony set is also often used in the home as a decorative reminder of a couple’s love and vows. In some cases modern couples perform both ceremonies at their wedding.
If you would like to view our collection of unity candles and unity sand ceremony sets, contact us or make an appointment.

The Ring-Bearer and Flower Girl are usually dressed to look like a couple. Some brides and grooms like to dress them up to look like miniature versions of themselves, and the look is just adorable.
The Ring-Bearer & The Ring Pillow
Little ring-bearers have a big responsibility as they have to secure and deliver the wedding bands. Traditionally, the ring-bearer carries the rings on a ring pillow with both the bride and grooms’ wedding bands tied to it as a symbol of their union to be. In some cases the ring bearer carries imitation rings while the best man carries the real rings for safekeeping. The ring-bearer is traditionally a young boy who is a relative of the family and around the same age as the flower girl(s).
The Flower Girl & The Flower Basket
When the flower girl starts her walk down the isle, everyone is thinking, “here comes the bride!” The Flower girl typically walks in front of the bride carrying a flower basket and spreading flowers down the isle before the bride. Some couples use only one flower girl while others use multiple. It all depends on the number of cute little girls in the family of the couple.
