What does ‘on-the-day wedding stationery’ mean?
You come across a lot of jargon when you’re planning a wedding.
People bang on about wedding breakfasts when they mean dinner, favours when they mean gifts, and cummerbunds which… who even knows what that means?
But on-the-day stationery is one of the worst offenders; you know what on-the-day means, you understand what stationery is, but together it’s utterly nonsensical.
Are you giving everyone wedding-themed pencil cases? Or tiny notepads with the date on them, like hotels keep by the phone?!
It’s not quite that sensible. On-the-day wedding stationery refers to signs and paper pieces used at the wedding itself, as opposed to save the date cards and invitations, which are needed before, and thank you cards, which are sent after.
