Shine Brighter Than A Thousand Stars

Today brings the first release for our new ‘Light the Way’ wedding stationery set. So here it is…

Printed navy blue save the date. Can be bought from our shop as a card or a magnet.

This gorgeous save the date card is beautiful and simple. The strings of lights across the top give a feeling of warmth and energy. Don’t forget when choosing a save the date card you must remember that this is the first impression people have of your wedding so you want to make it great. As with most of our save the date cards, this design can be purchased as either a card printed on our lovely high quality Nettuno or as a magnet. Magnetic save the dates are fun and people love sticking them on the fridge or notice board.

More pieces in this stationery set will become available over the coming week. These will include;

  • Invitations;
  • RSVP cards;
  • Name Cards;
  • Table Numbers;
  • Table Plan;

Keeping Up-To-Date…

As some of you may have noticed the last few weeks have been filled with lots of new and exciting product releases. This includes our sparkly foiled save the date cards, pop-up box place cards and our fridge magnet jigsaws, to name a few. We appreciate however that some of you may have missed all these releases as you have been busy planning other aspects of your wedding so we want to show you a couple of easy ways to keep up-to-date.

The first of these is to follow this blog. Nice and simple. Drop your email address in the little box on the right hand side of our blog page. You will then receive an email every time we post something brand new on here!

You can also keep up to date with us via our social media pages. We have a variety to choose from, so feel free to pick the one that most suits you.

Last but not least you also have the option to sign up to our mailing list. The awesome thing about this is that if you put in your wedding date (or a date roughly when you are hoping for) we can send you personalised emails to help you along with your stationery planning as well as information about our new product releases. This may include special seasonal releases appropriate for your wedding, little reminders about when we recommend to be ordering/sending out your wedding stationery and other helpful little tips to make your wedding planning just that bit easier.

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.

This is the first of Kate’s designs to be featured on our website and it is an absolutely gorgeous printed flat wedding invitation called ‘Fascinating Florals’. The watercolour style floral sprays make this invitation wonderfully elegant while the bright colours keep a relaxed and fun feel to the whole thing.

This is intended to be the first of many for the ‘Inked By Kate’ range so do keep your eyes peeled on our shop and our Facebook for more updates!

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.
