Personalised Wedding Stationery – Black Colour Scheme

Black is such a lovely colour scheme for a wedding. It’s crisp and clean. It looks stunning especially in photographs and venue dressing.

This week I have been making wedding invitation scrolls in black and white with a red rose.

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.

Wedding Thank You Card – Ivory & Gold with Heart Charm.

Thank you cards made to match wedding stationery. I made these  15 x 15 cm just to make them a little bit different in size. The wedding invitations can also be made in this size.

Wedding Guest Book – Cream & Gold with Heart Charm.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Pretty in Pink

This week I’ve made a table plan, table cards and place cards in a gorgeous baby pink and ivory. The accessories compliment the post box and guest book.

Jane & Rebecca contacted me back in February. They are having a civil ceremony in July. They are from my home town of Liverpool. I spoke to Jane on the telephone whilst Rebecca made a list of everything she wanted. I had to laugh, I heard Jane say, ‘Becs you can’t have everything that is on her site’

They are very excited about their day and I’m so glad I have been part of it. It’s lovely to hear the enthusiasm in their planning. I spoke to Jane on Sunday just before I started the table plan. She can talk for England, bit like me. Liverpudlians are always the same when they get together. We discussed the table plan, our animals, places in Liverpool. I feel like I know them.

Jane admitted she has turned into Bridezilla!

I know they are planning a blog after their day. A guide on services and customer service they received. I will share it with you at a later date. She told me about a funny incident with one supplier. They are to provide champagne flutes but could only find Mr & Mrs. Jane said, ‘Buy 2 sets then’. The suppleir said, ‘well we’ve not had a civil partnership before so don’t know what to do. I agreed buy 2 sets you will then be prepared for the next civil partnership. I did point out. I think people are afraid of offending people if they ask questions. Jane pointed out, it easier to just ask. I wonder how many suppliers out there are afraid of just asking, ‘how everything should be done’?

Butterfly Table Plan in pink & ivory

The wedding table plan was trimmed with baby pink satin ribbon top and bottom. I made pink tables printed on an ivory pearlescent card. I incorporated layered butterflies in pink and ivory keeping in with the colour scheme. I layered the butterflies, pink for top, ivory underneath. When you lift up the wings the ivory can be seen. I made them with pearlescent card to give them a shimmer. I finished of with gorgeous swarovski crystal trails.

Butterfly Table Names in pink & ivory

pink ivory butterfly table cards

Here we have matching table cards. The names were after place they had visited in America. The top table being universal after universal studios. I’m told these will sit in glass slippers. Wow!

Butterfly Place Cards in pink & ivory

pink ivory butterfly place cards

Finally the wedding place cards. Printed on an ivory pearlescent card, trimmed with layered butterflies and crystals.

I do hope they like everything! I will be making 2 personalised wedding reading scrolls in matching colours. They are going to present them to their readers after the event, as a little keepsake
