Gold Organza Wedding Invitation with Heart Charm

This week I have been busy with my Princess design. The colour scheme is ivory and gold.

 I would like to showcase how items can be matched from invitations right through to ‘wedding day stationery’

I made the invitations. They were sent out in April.

I love this invitation because it’s stylish but simple. I do like invitations that are not too fussy. The invitation comes in either ivory, white or cream. It’s tied with an organza sheer ribbon and tiny heart shaped charm so it can be matched to any colour scheme. The base card can be smooth or textured.

This colour scheme has been followed from the wedding invittions right through to the ‘on the day stationery’

I have really enjoyed making these items. My last 7 weddings have been purple (Don’t get me wrong. I love purple) but, it’s been a nice change to make something in a different colour.

I hope you like it.

Please join me on facebook where you will find regular updates on my gallery. I’d love any comments you have, or even any suggestions you would like me to feature.

Until next time. Enjoy the summer.

Wedding Guest Book

Megan - Wedding Guest Book

Wedding guest books are a lovely way to read the messages from your guests many years after your special day. It always lovely to read your cards, but a wedding guest book is something you can get out and read all the messages in one place.

Butterfly Wedding Guest Book

Do I need a wedding guest book?

Wedding guest books are very popular. It like having all your cards in one place. I make many guest books, but had never seen one filled with messages. A bride contacted me after her wedding. She also lived in Chester 2 mins away from me. I had made her guest book a few weeks before. She held her wedding in Formby which is approx 60 miles away. Of course her neighbours couldn’t attend. Anyway someone had knocked a piece off the guest book. She asked if I could make it as new. I collected the guest book. I asked, ‘would you mind if I read it’? she said yes, of course. I sat for over one hour reading all the lovely messages. There were funny cartoon drawings etc. You could tell near the end of the book the evening guests were a bit squiffy! It was such a lovely thing to read. I didn’t know the couple but by the time I’d finished I felt as though I did. She was telling me there were some pages empty. She was about to invite the neighbours to watch the wedding DVD. I suggested after they had watched, pass the guest book around for anyone to write a message. They were too far away to travel to the church on the day, but this was a chance to write a special thought to be read in years to come. She did and filled the book!

I make guest books for other occasions too!

I make guest books for special birthdays, anniversaries, christenings, renewal of vows. It’s a keepsake to remember a special time.

40th Birthday Guest Book

Guest books can be personalised with name and date of the occasion. These can be made in every colour your can imagine.

60th Birthday Guest Book

I can add a swing tag with the name of the venue. These books make a lovely gift for almost any special occasion. If you would like to view more designs please visit my web site www.carolmillerdesigns.co.uk  You can also join me on facebook  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Carol-Miller-Designs/303224494575?v=wall for the latest updates.

Why have a guest book?

I once made a guest book for 2 special friends of mine. They had a joint 50th birthday party. My firend was going to be 50 in 12 months time. Her hubby had just celebrated his birthday. They wanted a party for special friends, but hated the big 50,  no cards or presents were allowed as it wasn’t an actual birthday. They sent the invitations out, 100 not out! They held the party at home, 120 guest invited on a lovely summer evening. I decided to make a guest book for them. The heading was as the invites.  I trimmed in purple. They knew nothing about it. I took it around getting people to sign it. My daughter helped too. The guest book ended up behind the buffet, under the table it was a task trying to keep it hidden. They nearly spotted it a few times. We had a some  pages to fill so we got the little people to draw pictures and sign their names. At the end of the night we presented it to them. They were delighted. She told me afterwards. It was so busy looking after people, she hardly got time to have a proper chat with people. They were overwhelmed with the kind thoughts and messages. She loved the fact that the children ranging from 5 yrs to 15 yrs had also added their little messages and drawings.

Another thought. I get asked many times, ‘How can I make sure my guests sign the book’? I always suggest, put it on the table next to your Wedding Post Box. I also find there are teenagers in a wedding with no real role. Put them in charge of your guest book. It’s a great way to make them feel important and gives them a chance to meet your guests. Believe me it works!

Burgundy Ivory Gold Butterfly

Wedding Guest Book, Post Box & Camera Box

Wedding Keepsake / Memory Box

This week has been very varied order wise. I’ve got wedding scroll invitations to go to USA. A couple of  poem scrolls to present to the bride /groom on the morning of the wedding. I’ve made a wedding seating plan in black and white with silver butterflies, a matching guest book, matching wallets that double as place cards containing a lottery scratch card and matching table cards. This week I’ve had 5 orders for Wedding Keepsake Boxes.

Wedding Memory Box

Wedding keepsake boxes are very popular. Great for a wedding present too. The most popular this year are the butterfly themed boxes. I make the boxes in either white or ivory. They can be made to match almost any colour scheme. Purple is by far the most requested colour. I’ve made 3 butterfly themed ones this week, a 21st birthday box and one for a pet.

Wedding keepsake boxes are an ideal place to store all the memories of your special day. Your wedding invitation, place card, menu, wedding reading, table card to name but a few. You can even store your wedding guest book. It’s an ideal place to keep everything at hand. A box to get out every now and again and re live those special memories.

Wedding Memory Boxes

The boxes are personalised with the name of the bride and groom and the date of the wedding. They can be made in every colour imaginable. The boxes are trimmed with ribbons and embellishments to match your theme.

I get many orders from ‘the office girls’ I am able to place a message inside the lid for the bride & groom to remember who bought the gift.

It’s a beautiful gift for a bride and groom.
