‘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.

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.

Alice in Wonderland Sneak Peek

So we thought we would share a little sneak preview of a set of bespoke wedding invitations that we have been working on.  This silver wax seal (although they were in gold in the end) was used to finish the envelopes. The White Rabbit and letters motif was based on a playing card using the initials of the couple getting married.

Blue Swish Save the Dates – Feature Friday

These beautiful printed Save The Date cards are available on high quality paper or as magnets.

These gorgeous Blue Swish Save the Date cards were designed quite traditionally. Emma started with some blue and purple inks. Starting with one colour she practised creating the gentle waves across paper. When she became happy with her technique she took an A6 card and painted the swishes in both colours, building them up until she was happy. The finished swishes were allowed to dry before we scanned the design in and began adding text.

We wanted to keep the text quite simple. The purple brush style lettering was added as a last minute detail as it just needed a little more.

As with most of our save the date cards this design can be printed onto 180gsm Nettuno card which has a lovely high quality feel to it and just a small amount of texture or they can be printed as A7 magnets. The magnets are a wonderful way of presenting your save the date cards as they can be stuck straight onto the fridge or a magnetic whiteboard planner.
