Wedding Stationery in lilac

Lilac is a lovely colour scheme and is popular for 2013. I really like this scheme especially when it’s

coordinated with cadbury’s purple. Here are a few stationery items with a lilac theme.

Scroll Wedding Invitations part 2

Scroll Wedding Invitations

I would like to showcase some more of my Wedding Scroll Invitation designs.

Wedding Scroll Invitation – Imogen

This is one of my latest designs and a personal favourite of mine.

I love anything that sparkles and this really does sparkle.

Wedding Scroll Invitation – Imogen in Navy and White

This beautiful photograph of Imogen Wedding Invitation Scroll was photographed by Yvonne at White Gold Images

www.whitegoldimages.co.uk

I had the pleasure to meet Yvonne in February when she came up north for a photo shoot.

 I met her  through Twitter. She came up with Joyce from www.bridesandbeauty.co.uk ( a wonderful make up artist)

I was telling Yvonne how I struggle with photographs. I can’t catch the details.

Well, that’s why she is a photographer and I’m not! She has a gift, sadly I don’t posses.

She gave me some tips. I did try, but really I thought, ‘leave it to the experts’

Yvonne recently took some photographs for me that will be featured for a brochure.

It’s for Double Tree Hilton in Chester. www.doubletree.hilton.co.uk/chester

I can’t wait to see the pics and maybe one day I’ll get to meet the gorgeous

Marco Pierre White who has a restaurant there.

She also blogged the scrolls on her own site. She wrote some very kind words indeed.

Here’s what she wrote ……….

Yvonne has really captured the detail in this photo.

 This is a very popular scroll because it incorporates a butterfly. Butterflies are always popular for wedding themes. This wedding invitation scroll can be made in any colour scheme.

There is a Swarovski crystal trail.  Scroll boxes come in almost any colour and there’s a choice of either matt or pearlescent finish. The actual invite is printed on a white butterfly vellum paper.

A lot of brides don’t want to write on the insert. I can print the names of your guests for a small charge.

It’s surprising how different Wedding Invitation Scrolls can look when you change the colour scheme. I like this one as I love turquoise.

It’s July already!

I’m having a very busy month.

I’ve been asked by Double Tree Hilton Hotel Chester to contribute to their blog on a regular basis. How cool is that?

I’ve had 3 products featured this month in Wedding Ideas Magazine.

It’s a very busy time for me for wedding seating plans and matching accessories. Have you ordered yours yet?

Wedding seating plans should always be provisionally booked at least 3 – 6 months before your wedding. Many of the good stationers get booked up months in advance. It’s advisable to enquire early to avoid disappointment. Many couples leave this until 4 weeks before a wedding, only to find it’s too late. I never start a table plan until 4 weeks before a wedding but, I do have wedding seating plans booked in months before.

I rarely take on a last minute table plans as I’m usually booked. Oh, and I hate saying no, sorry I can’t!

This month I’ve made a baby blue butterfly wedding seating plan with matching table cards.

Wedding Seating Plan – blue butterflies.

I love making wedding seating plans. They take almost a full day to print and assemble. If people think they are knocked up in 30 mins, believe me they are not!

The most important part for me is the detail. Butterflies are made so the wings stand up. There is a beautiful swarovski crystal trail. Trimmed with beautiful matching satin ribbon.

Butterfly table plans can be made in 50 colourways.

Baby Blue Butterfly Wedding Seating Plan

Wedding Table Name Cards – blue butterflies

Table names with an Italian theme. Regions in Italy. I lived there many years ago so I recognise the areas.

These were made with the Italian spellings, not English.

Toscana = Tuscany. Sardegna = Sardinia. Sicilia = Silcily etc

Wedding Table Names – blue butterflies

All made to made to match the wedding table plan in baby blue and pearl ivory.

Wedding Seating Plan – silver diamonte hearts and red satin ribbon.

This is one of my favourite designs. I just love sparkle.

This is so blingy. Guests names are printed on a white pearlescent card mounted on red.

Red does seem to be the new in colour for 2012 and 2013

Order of Service – silver diamonte hearts and red satin ribbon

Wedding Table Name Cards.

Wedding Seating Plan – pink bows and crystals

I love pink!

Printed on a white pearlescent card, mounted on baby pink. Trimmed with baby pink tailored bows and crystals. Simple but stylish!

I loved making this one.

Pink is one of my favourite colours. Pink isn’t the most popular colour for weddings despite what people may think. This table plan can be made in any colour of your choice.

Wedding Table Names – pink bows and crystals

Wedding Seating Plan – turquoise and silver butterflies

The colour scheme for this wedding is turquoise and silver. Butterflies are layered so when the wings are lifted, there is a silver butterfly underneath. Turquoise is another favourite colour of mine.

Wedding Table Plan – turquoise and silver butterflies

Wedding Breakfast Menu – turquoise and silver butterflies

It’s mid July, I’m not finished yet.

I still have a cadbury’s purple butterfly table plan, table cards, place cards, menus, guest book and wedding post box.

Wine & fuchsia double heart table plan, table cards and place cards.

Black and white butterfly table plan.

Butterflies still seem to be the most popular theme for weddings.
