Matching a stationery suite to your wedding theme

Have you ever received an invitation which managed to capture the theme of a wedding or event so well that you were able to envision it exactly as soon as you opened the envelope?

Invitations are one of the most essential parts of planning a wedding because they set the tone of what guests are to expect on the wedding day while at the same time helping them prepare for your event. With your wedding invitations you let your guests have a sneak peek into your special day. Obviously there is a practical side to sending the invitations such as letting your guests know when and where the wedding is going to take place, but there is also the other part, which is much more exciting!  

Beauty is in the details!

It is amazing what a difference some embellishments can make. They set the tone and formality but also speak volumes about your style, personality and attention to detail. Little details like envelope liners, ribbons and colourful wax seals can very much transform the whole look of the suite. As an example I have created two inspirations boards which feature my Heather collection. Although the suite in both is identical, a few accessories are able to completely transform it into two totally different looks.  

In the first one I used a soft and airy colour palette of light grey, blush and ivory. To achieve this look I accomplished the suite with silk ribbons, and vellum paper envelope liners. This style would be a perfect fit for a French summer inspired outdoor wedding.

The second inspiration board features deeper tones of grey and blue. The golden wax seal and heavier satin ribbon add a whole new dimension to the look. It would be a great choice for a glamorous stately home wedding decorated with lavish florals and gold elements.

I hope I have shown you how wedding stationery can be tailored to perfectly compliment a variety of styles of wedding. If you would like to discuss how one of my collections can fit your big day I would love to hear from you via the contact form.
