What do you put on the newspapers?

Ahhh there's SOOOO much and the fab thing is, you can be as creative as you like - whatever you choose you'll be safe in the knowledge you're creating a one off, unique masterpiece! The more unique and quirky...the better! If you're sitting there thinking 'I'll never be able to fill a newspaper!' then fear not, we've got tons of ideas to get you started! Some popular bits and bobs our couples have added are; Thank you messages to guests Wishes for an unplugged ceremony Order of the day Wedding menu Fun facts about you as a couple, guests or wedding planning Your love story Remembering loved ones who have passed away Your wedding music The proposal story Mr & Mrs/Mr & Mr/Mrs & Mrs game Order of service for Church weddings (inc readings and hymns) Dogs at your wedding? Get them on there! ...and much, much more!

How do you use them on the day?

This is completely up to you. Most of our couples order enough to place one on each seat at the ceremony, as you can tailor your newspaper to let your guests know everything they need to for the rest of the day. Other couples have used them in goody bags they've given to guests the day before, or day after the wedding. Some have used them at the wedding breakfast and others have left some extras on the cake table at night for the evening guests to enjoy - its your day and we believe you should have it exactly how you want to.

When should I order?

We recommend ordering as soon as you know you want wedding newspapers for your big day for a couple of reasons; Planning a wedding is tough and you'll thank us later down the line for making such a fabulous purchase in plenty of time haha. The main reason to order early is to avoid disappointment - we offer a limited number of slots each month to ensure we've got enough time to dedicate to all of our couples and once we hit our limit, we'll close for that month. Only then once we've fulfilled a good chunk of newspapers for that month will we re-open, but that's not always the case. We work through newspapers in month order, so for example, if you order now and your wedding isn't until October've secured your spot, but don't need to send all of the details over just yet if you're not ready. For full consultation and approval of the proofs, please allow 4 weeks before your big day to complete your order. We will always be in touch in plenty of time before your big day to send over your first draft. If you're getting married really soon and want these newspapers for your big day...get in touch and I'm sure we'll be able to work our magic for you.
