Wedding planning: there’s nothing quite like it. The bliss. The excitement. The stress. The details. The stress.
Did we mention stress?
The Save the Dates have been sent out, the wedding invitations and reply cards have been ordered. On to the flowers, right? Let’s take a step back.
Creating a full suite of printed wedding materials is an essential detail of wedding planning. However, it oftentimes is completely overlooked until the last minute.
If left out of the planning, not only will a wedding lack detail in the newlywed’s signature style but also crucial information for guests.
We don’t need to spell out all the ways that a lack of information can wreak havoc on an event – we’re here to focus on the positives. This is a day meant to be enjoyed, after all!
Prepare personalized day-of print communications ahead of time to support a successful big day. Here are our top six print recommendations worth including in your wedding planning.
6 Print Materials Worth Including in Your Big Day

We often highlight the importance of branding businesses, but your personal brand is just as important.
Get creative and have fun customizing these day-of print materials with a consistent style that reflects who you are as a couple.
1. Welcome Sign
2. Ceremony Signage and Programs
If you’re requesting specifics like a cell-phone-free ceremony or prefer participants to pick a seat and not a side, inform guests of your wishes upfront with a printed sign.
Use programs to list the order of ceremony, information about the wedding party, and a thank you message from the betrothed for guests to read while waiting for the ceremony to begin, for instance. Printed programs are also a nice keepsake from the day, too.
3. Guest Seating chart
Once you’ve finished agonizing over drafts upon drafts of who sits where (seriously, this has got to be one of the most unnecessarily complex parts of the planning) commit it to ink and don’t look back.
Those two aunts with a never-ending bone to pick? They’re just going to have to see for themselves which tables they’ll be side-glancing one another from using the guest seating chart. Okay, let’s get out of here…duck and dodge, moving on!
4. Food and beverage menus
Individually printed menus outline the meal and can be part of the table arrangements. If you’re serving a buffet-style meal, or have a specialty food bar available like a sundae bar, a simple sign will do the trick.
This is Wisconsin, after all…
Day-of Idea: Create a signature cocktail with its very own signage for your wedding – assign it a clever name, outline the anatomy of its contents and add your wedding hashtag for the types of photos a professional photographer will have too much dignity to take.
5. Table Numbers and Place Cards
If a straight-forward and simple printed piece isn’t enough, custom-cut numbers and name markers can be achieved with our wide-format router, which can print on a variety of materials.
6. Miscellaneous Signage and Prints
Photobooth cutouts, guest books, direction arrows, gift table signage, cake toppers, window clings, and thank you cards, for example, are all ideal ways to visually express yourselves.
Talk to your Delzer Rep to determine the best ways to turn your ideas into reality.
Our router’s fast-forwarded speed is absolutely mesmerizing to watch as it cuts through the photo booth signage.
