‘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.

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.

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 enquiries@wishfulinkingltd.co.uk and find out how we can help.

Welcome to our New Website – Feature Friday

We have been working on this for a few months now and are so pleased to be able to share it with you. We have added some great new features so please have a good look around.

One of the biggest changes on the new website is the ability to select your chosen number of invitations, RSVP cards or save the date cards. On our previous site you could only select 25, 50, 75 or 100. There is a minimum order of 25 for most of our products but you can just drop us a line if you require fewer and we can create a custom quote for you.

Product FilteringThere is a wonderful discount for anyone who purchases printed Save the Date cards, printed Invitations and a set of printed RSVP cards. If you have one of each of these types of product in your basket you will get a 5% discount on your entire basket. So if you also order a fingerprint guestbook canvas at the same time as your stationery you would get 5% off that too!

Another great feature we have introduced on the new site is filtering. Why spend 3 hours scrolling through page after page of products if you have an idea of what kind of thing you are looking for? Our filters allow you to narrow down your product list so you are only looking at the things that might genuinely be of interest to you.

As well as our products for sale and our bespoke gallery we also have our ‘Contact Us’ and ‘Where to Find Us’ pages. These are a great way of getting in touch with us, either by filling in the contact form or by popping along to one of our upcoming wedding fayres for a chat. If you do have any questions about products, designs or turnaround times do just fire an email off to us and we will be happy to help you out.

Where to Find us
Our blog is nice and easy for you to find and as well as announcing new product ranges and other exciting Blognews we do a fortnightly ‘Feature Friday’ post. This is where we may give you a bit of information about some of our designs or we may feature other wedding vendors, we have also been know to share wedding tips and tricks so make sure you check in regularly. If you really enjoy keeping up to date you can sign up for email notifications about new blog posts too.

In the New Year we are launching a fabulous little addition in the form of a newsletter. Our newsletter will feature our newest releases and any special offers or promotions we have running. We will be giving you a chance to sign up to that in the next couple of weeks so keep your eyes peeled.

And finally, an element of the website that is due for launch in January is the ‘create your own invite’ this will allow you to choose which type of handmade invitation you want and you get to choose all the colours, the inserts, how and where any ribbon goes. You can really get just what you want.

Thanks for reading, if you have any questions or just want a chat drop an email to enquiries@wishfulinkingltd.co.uk

Birds of a Feather – Feature Friday

This lovely invitation is fun and vibrant but not too in your face and is a lovely way to introduce your guest to the colour scheme of you wedding without giving too many ideas away. The invitations are a nice balance between being fun and being formal.

The key features of this invitation are:

-Magnetic Clasp
-Double Mounted Inserts
-Pocketfold

The magnetic clasp on the front of the card is a lovely way to finish these invites. The magnets are strong enough to hold the invitation closed without having to be on view unlike velcro clasps which you can always see. We also feel that you don’t have to use as much force to open the invitations, this is key on some of our more delicate invites.

For this invitation we decided to keep the main card quite neutral with our buff card. We then really lifted the features and inserts by using the purple grape and ocean blue card in a double mount. This double mount style can be applied to any of our handmade wedding invitations though it does affect the cost.

This is one of our most recent pocketfold invitation designs. The little pocket can be filled with all sorts of information cards, RSVP cards and other bits and pieces you wish to send to your guests. Guests can also use it to keep any additional information, train tickets, booking references, etc.

Included in the price of this invitation are the white envelopes for the main invitation and the RSVP cards, amendments to the wording of the inserts, changes to names, dates and times etc., and your choice of colours.

Alice In Wonderland Bespoke Wedding Invitations – Feature Friday

So this week our feature Friday post is telling you a little more about the beautiful Alice In Wonderland bespoke wedding invitations we created.

The concept is quite simple. The clients wanted invitations with a pocket on the inside and they wanted it to fit their purple Alice In Wonderland themed wedding. We spent a while playing with a few different concepts for the front of the invitation before deciding on this playing card. The ‘D’ and ‘K’ in the corners are the first initials of the Groom and Bride respectively. As a secondary colour at their wedding will be gold we decided to incorporate that colour into the invitations with the little gold letters and hearts. The three gold hearts across the front of the invitation flow quite nicely and link the two initials together visually.

The inside of the invitations (more pictures can been viewed in the bespoke creations gallery) feature a beautiful embossed clock motif that was added to fill a big expanse of purple that was too distracting. We also used the clock embossing on the backs of the RSVP cards. The inside of the invitation has a panel on the left inviting all their guests to the wedding itself and then a reversable panel on the right tucked into the pocket with details of the reception on one side and information about local taxi firms and hotels on the other. Also in the pocket you can find the RSVP card and its matching envelope.

The RSVP cards and envelopes were created using custom stamps that we also produced for the couple. This meant it was a much quicker process to address the RSVP envelopes. Although you can’t see the front of the envelopes for data protection reasons they had the RSVP address stamped on and then they were embossed in gold.

The couple had a lot of positive feedback on their invitations and have told us that a few times they have been to visit friends and spotted their invitations up on bookcases or mantelpieces.
