Our Wedding Day Shopping List

So, you’re getting married!  After the excitement of the proposal, the rush of telling your loved ones “it’s really happening!” and the thrill of your big announcement on insta, the reality hits… it’s time to plan your wedding.  Don’t you wish someone would just hand you a wedding day shopping list?

Planning a wedding is a huge undertaking, and you probably feel the pressure to nail every detail perfectly.  When Tyler and I started planning our wedding, I felt that pressure too, in a big way!  I didn’t want to miss one detail when it came to how our wedding looked and felt, especially with the signage and stationery!  I wanted our wedding to be unique to us.  

Go Custom Where it Counts

Since we understand the pain points of planning a wedding, we wanted to provide you with a comprehensive list of all the signage and stationery needs you might have as you plan your wedding.  While the dream is to have all of these items done custom, we know not every bride is able to go after every item on this list.  That’s why it’s important that the things you do choose to customize are reflective of you.  That might mean including a hand-drawn portrait of your pet on cocktail napkins.  It could mean having your favorite saying handwritten by me and translated into a neon sign.  These are the little details that make for big “wow” moments. And now you can check out the AM+Co shop for things like thank you notes, to-do lists, and gifts for your wedding party that may not necessarily be custom, but still reflect our signature style.

Save Yourself the Stress

When you go with AM+Co for your stationery and signage, we painstakingly make sure every element is cohesively pieced together.  That way you don’t have to cross your fingers and hope the things you order from Amazon, Etsy, and other sources match.  We custom-build all of our pieces and signage so that your wedding will have your unique fingerprint.  And on your big day, we work hard to execute every detail flawlessly so that all you have to do is show up looking gorgeous and ready to party!  

About the List

This wedding day shopping list is designed as a comprehensive guide of your event from start to finish. So as you go through the timeline of your wedding day, you’ll see the pieces you need in chronological order, from the time your guests arrive all the way through til the new Mr. & Mrs. depart in the getaway car.


Here are just a few examples of elements we provide that are included in the shopping list.  The possibilities are endless, though, and we can make each piece completely unique to you and your fiance!pre-wedding items wedding day shopping list

To Rent or Not to Rent

We’re often asked if our wedding signs are rentals.  We specialize in custom wedding signs that are hand-designed and created by our team specifically for our clients.  So while some of the stands, easels, and structures for the signs are rentals (you can check out our rental catalogue here), the personalized signage is not.  It is created unique to you, which means it belongs to you when the wedding is over, too!
