You’re engaged! Congratulations! Now it’s time to get on with the wed-min! A daunting prospect, we know. To help take some of the stress of wedding planning off your shoulders. A photographic floral design interwoven with images of gems and pearls, it beautifully captures the romance of the occasion and with everything from invitation to decorations, style every part of your day to perfection.


Gone are the days of picking just one or two colours for your wedding palette, as couples get more experimental with their selection using a range of 4 or 5 colours. To build the perfect palette, starting with two light colours such as a beautiful blush or cream, next adding in a darker colour such as navy or charcoal. Finally incorporate a highlight colour or two such as peach or cornflower blue!


SEASONAL STYLING


More couples are starting to incorporate the season that they will wed into their stationery be that with spring blooms, autumn leaves or wintery snowflakes. Building your theme around your season will give a small taster and authentic feel to what your guests should expect.


BOTANICAL


Flowers may traditional part of the wedding day, but modern couples are turning to a more laid back rustic approach. Foliage, ferns and wild blooms offer an effortless and beautiful botanical look – elegant rather than glamorous. The result is a clean and minimal finish that works perfectly with wooden elements, metallic props and string lighting.


HANDWRITTEN FONTS


Calligraphy has always been a part of wedding stationery but this beautiful art form can be expensive to source for your stationery. With so many amazing handwritten-look fonts available, this look is now much more affordable and gives the same romantic finish to your lettering. Handwritten fonts look great on all aspects of your stationery from save the dates through to welcome signs and place cards used on the day!


MIXING MATERIALS


With so many lovely card stocks out there to form the basis of your stationery, combining different weights and textures can add a whole new dimension to the look of your invitations and save the dates! We love using a natural craft card mixed with a white textured base and translucent paper for a luxury look. This trend can be taken one step further by adding wooden embellishments or metallic threads!
