Pre-Wedding Parties: Print Checklist

Tying the knot? Congratulations! As you prepare for the big day, there are several exciting events that take place before your actual wedding date.

Pre-wedding parties can include everything from your engagement soirée to the hen and stag parties. While none of these celebrations are mandatory, they can be a great way to calm pre-wedding jitters and have some more fun!

Here’s how each of those celebrations can be made extra special with personalised prints and decor.

Engagement Party Ideas

The engagement party is the first pre-wedding celebration that kicks off the wedding festivities. It’s a time for the newly engaged couple to celebrate before the serious ‘wedmin’ kicks in. So, if you’re planning an engagement party, here’s some easy print ideas to tick off the list:

  • Welcome Sign: Greet your guests with a personalised Welcome Sign. It’s the perfect way to set the tone for the party and can used as a photo backdrop! You can choose from our standard rectangle shapes, or opt for something a little more funky with our Arched or Wavy finish.
