‘Will you be my bridesmaid?’ and other exciting news!

A common question at wedding fayres is about cards to ask friends to step into that all important role of bridesmaid or to thank those who have already said yes for all their hard work once the wedding is over. Although these types of cards weren’t something we had initially considered we are pleased to show you a sneak peek at what we have been working on in response to your enquiries. Ta-dah!

Handmade pop-up bridesmaid card.

These lovely pop-up box cards fold flat for posting and can be made in any colours. A small foiled message can be added on the front flap for example; ‘Will you be my bridesmaid?’, ‘Thank you for being awesome!, ‘Thank you for being my bridesmaid.’, ‘Will you be my maid of honour?’. Keep your eyes peeled on the store for their release in the next week or so!

The next few weeks are going to be full of lots of new surprises for you! We have plans in motion to create a set of DIY wedding stationery kits. This decision comes after many conversations with engaged couples, at wedding fayres, who wish to be involved in making their own stationery but aren’t sure where to start or where to source their materials from. We aim to have a selection of kits available at different price levels and varied skill levels, included in our kits will be written instructions and a link to access some tutorial videos and photographs. We understand people’s desire to be involved with the making of their stationery and we fully support adding a personal flair to your wedding, please remember though that making invitations takes time and patience.

In the coming months we aim to present you with a wider variety of printed wedding stationery styles to choose from. Alongside more designs we are going to be releasing some stunning printed table plans, name cards and table numbers.

Making a good first impression.

Here at Wishful Inking we aim to create the wedding stationery that you truly want to complement your special day. Your invitations or save the date cards are the first impression that your guests will have of your wedding. This means that you should choose which elements of your wedding you want your guests to get a sneak preview of.


Making the right first impression is vital and you don’t want your wedding stationery to feel cheap and flimsy. Luxury

Red, gold and white pocketful wedding invitation available in our online shop.

heavy weight cards and papers are the first step to that feeling of quality. Your guests will be holding your stationery in their hands as they look at it and you want them to know this card, that has dropped through their letterbox, is obviously something important and special.

You may choose to share the elegance and splendour of your wedding day with your guests. This can be achieved using rich colours for your stationery or by enhancing elements of the images and text by using foiling. The metallic lettering can really create a focal point for your whole invitation and capture that feeling of elegance and grandeur in the finished look. Our ‘Time Flies’ invitation uses a rich red colour to create a striking contrast to the white of the main card. To really give it that next level of splendour, the gold foiling is used on the Bride and Groom’s names as well as other key elements of the information.

Summer pocketfold wedding invitations now available from our online shop.

Perhaps you’re having a fun summery wedding and want to give your guests a taste of the sunshine. This can be achieved by using vibrant colours and fun floral motifs. Move away from those traditional calligraphy fonts and bring in something a little more quirky to show off the more playful side of your big day. You can even bring these features in right from your save the date cards too. The soft watercolour feel of our ‘Summer Fun’ magnetic save the date cards really adds to the warm and fun effect of a great day at the beach.

There are so many ways to make a great first impression with your wedding stationery. Why not drop us an email at and find out how we can help.
