Love photograph

Sometimes whilst browsing through Pinterest, I stumble upon an image that makes me stop and look......this one did just that thing - I 'love' it (please excuse the pun).

From the LA based photographer, Max Wanger, his work is fun, warm and dreamy. 

Could it spark off an idea for your handmade wedding invitations or wedding stationery?

wedding menu ideas

A tasteful card with all the details of the menu for your special day. An essential element to your wedding day.  Let your guests see what food and wine they will be eating.

Our Cameron collection menu with Grape satin ribbon bow.

'Chandelier' menu with fuchsia pink ribbon.

The menu is finished with a satin ribbon that follows the them of your handmade wedding invitations and is perfectly coordinated with place names and table numbers (or names).

This was a fun idea from Kate & Ed's wedding .....different boys and girls menus.  The 'boys' had steak and chips whilst the more refined 'girls' had steamed fish with new potatoes and salad.

Depending on the size of your reception tables, you could order one for each guest and lay them on their plates......gorgeous idea! (Please email us for more information on circular menus).

A wedding menu for a golden wedding anniversary with coordinating gold satin ribbon, paper insert and card cover.  Prices start at £3.00 each.

Classic order of service and table plan with cream ribbon

We're kick starting the week off, with these elegant Order of Service and Table Plan using a cream satin ribbon...

Our customers came to us with a request to produce their Order of Service and table plan in a similar vein to their handmade wedding invitations. We were able to match the 'Cream' satin ribbon perfectly. For the headings on both items, we used the font 'Castellar', while for the main body of text, we used 'Times New Roman'. 

This is what they had to say....

"Paul and I wanted to thank you for our beautiful Order of Service and the stunning Table Plan.

You not only created elegant designs, but you also helped to make these personal to us by matching the ribbon colour and font of our invitations perfectly.

The Order of Service represents the most important part of the day and will be a wonderful memento for our marriage and these precious items were also packaged so carefully - its obvious you take pride in your work!

We honestly can't thank you enough".

With kindest regards, Jo & Paul

Below are the Order of Service ready to be sent.  It is very important to us that all our stationery arrives in perfect order.  We therefore do spend a lot of time making sure that all the items we send are packaged correctly with lots of tissue paper, bubble wrap and cardboard for added protection.

Pale khaki wedding invitations

We've just completed these pretty,fresh looking handmade wedding invitations for our couple's wedding in July.

They chose a new colour ribbon that we've used only a few times.  My predictions are, we're going to see a lot more of's called khaki.  Not the usual khaki that we associate with the Army but a very pretty, feminine and fresh colour, similar to the bridemaid's dresses below....

Our Cameron luxury day invites comes in a wallet and a paper tie to secure shut.  

The bride and groom, also included an information card to let guests know of their plans for the day after the wedding.

The panic starts ...... how do we seat all our guests in an organised and quick way?  Well, the answer lies in a table or seating plan.  

Here are some inspirational ideas for interesting and effective ways to do this....

Hungarian and German wedding invitations

We've just completed these pretty Cornflower invites for a wedding in Germany.  The bride and groom wanted some of the invites to be in German and some in Hungarian. They emailed with both wording and we fitted it to the invites.  

This is what our customer had to say -

"Hello Elaine........Today we received the shipment. They are wonderful. Thank you very much for this excellent service! Best regards from Germany". Timea

Instead of a dotted line for writing their guest names on, they left the space blank.

To keep the wallet shut, a printed paper tie with the bride and groom's names, is attached around the handmade wedding invitation.  
Prices start at £2.75 each.  This also includes having your guest names printed.

dusky pink wedding invitations

 More pink handmade wedding invitations, this time in the shade dusky pink.

Our customer loved our Cameron Collection and wanted to add her own bespoke touches to it.

We based the invites on the Cameron classic day/evening format with a heart cut-out revealing the bride and groom's initials at the bottom of the card. We added a paper tie (printed with their names) to secure the card shut.  

Inside there was a satin ribbon bow.  At the bottom of the card, you can just see the initials and the heart cut-out.  Once the paper tie was taken off it reveals the wording 'wedding invitation'.  

What do you think of this invite?......I love to hear your thoughts.

Valentine's Day doesn't have to be a 'cheesy' day to pick for your wedding.  It doesn't have to be all things glittery with cupids flying around.

cactus wedding favours

When it comes to thinking of a unique wedding favour for your guests, an original idea would be to use a cactus plant.  Plants are a fantastic gift, your guests can enjoy them all year round.  Miniature is definitely the way to go.  
Cacti are low maintenance with maximum wow factor.
