the must haves for your flat-lay detail shots.
The focal point of your flat-lay is your wedding stationery. You might not have opted in for all custom wedding stationery, and you may have even sent some things virtually, but if you have any extras of the following, these should be brought to your venue on the day of for detail shots:
Your flat-lay isn't *just* going to be stationery, though. The stationery can be styled in all sorts of ways with other small details that encompass your wedding style, but the most important to include are:
something else to "fill the space".
so - how do i make sure i have what i need for my flat-lay?!
If you chose the route of designing your own stationery and printing invitations through an online wholesaler, then make sure the print a few extras. You'll want to have some to hold onto for years to come, and you'll want to give a couple to your planner/photographer on the day of your wedding. If you hired a stationer to custom design invitations, address your envelopes, and print day-of stationery, then make sure you request a few extras of each piece from them. Personally, I have so much fun supplying my couples with extra envelopes that are all decked out in calligraphy, vintage stamps, wax seals, etc. for styling of detail photos. Not only does it add to their wedding day photo gallery, but it also helps me as a wedding vendor to have beautiful photos of my work to share on social media. Whoever is creating your stationery will love the opportunity to have their artwork styled and photographed by a talented professional.
Talk to your wedding planner, day-of coordinator, photographer, maid of honor, etc. to make sure they know this is an important aspect of your wedding day-vision and trust them to bring it to life. Your planner & photographer may already have some ideas in mind for details to include in your flat-lay photos, and in my opinion, more details are always better! I am allll about the details, and if I'm your wedding-stationery designer, I'll make sure you have all you need and more for your dream flat lays!
