We’ve recently noticed a new trend marking a charming impact in weddings of discerning couples who want to add a touch of the personal while avoiding the cliched traditions – the wedding day newspaper. A creative, visually stylish and delightful way to keep your guests entertained and informed, this can also double as an extension of your dream day aesthetic.

Why we love this trend.

Wedding day newspapers are more than just a novelty; they’re a sweetly styled keepsake and a practical tool in an affordable medium. Here’s why we love them.

  • Perfectly personal: A wedding newspaper is a fabulous way to share your love story, fun facts about the bridal party, and heartfelt messages with your guests. It adds a layer of intimacy and connection, making everyone feel like they’re part of your journey.
  • Fun factor: Keep your guests engaged with crossword puzzles, trivia, and fun anecdotes about your relationship. It’s a great icebreaker and conversation starter, especially during those in-between moments like waiting for the ceremony to start.
  • Stylish favour: Designed beautifully, a wedding newspaper can be a cherished memento for both you and your guests. It’s something they, and you, can take home and reminisce on.

The content.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to content, but here are some fabulous ideas to get you started:

  • Your story. Share how you met, the proposal story, and some of your favourite moments together. Perhaps even what the wedding planning process has been like; some sweet or funny moments you’ve shared. This sets the tone and makes your guests feel even more connected to your celebration.
  • The setting. Perhaps your venue has special meaning to you, or a story around why you chose it. Set the scene for your guests.
  • The who’s who. Introduce your wedding party and even your family with fun bios and photos. Include light-hearted stories and interviews to give your guests a glimpse into your inner circle. A lovely touch can sometimes be to include your grandparents or parents take on marriage, where appropriate.
  • The program. Outline the day’s schedule so guests know what to expect and when. Add a little touch of your own style and perhaps some clever copy to keep it fresh.
  • Puzzles and Games: Include crossword puzzles or trivia questions related to your relationship or the wedding theme. It’s a fun way to keep guests entertained and engaged.
  • Special mentions: Use this space to thank your guests for being part of your special day and express your gratitude to those who helped make the day possible. Perhaps include messages from those who couldn’t travel to be there or honour those who may have passed.
  • The local low down: If you’re hosting a destination wedding, provide information about the local area, including must-see attractions, dining recommendations, and travel tips.
  • Photo spots: Suggest some great photo spots at your venue or around town and where they can share them with you to enjoy. It’s a great way to ensure you get plenty of candid shots from your guests.

So, why not surprise your guests with a carefully crafted, visually impactful wedding day newspaper? It’s a perfect blend of practicality, creativity, and stylish sentimentality.
