Personalised Wedding Stationery – Lilac Colour Scheme

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.

This is one of our most popular wedding invitations apart from the wedding invitation scrolls we make. A simple pretty design. A beautiful organza ribbon with pearlised butterflies and swarovski crystals make this a stunning invitation. This design can be made in any colour scheme. This is a very popular design for 2013. The base card comes in white, ivory or cream. Butterflies can be made to match the ribbon or mix and match. The choice is yours.


Wedding Invitation Scroll – Megan

This beautiful wedding invitation scroll is made with a pearl ivory scroll box and lilac satin ribbons. Perfect for any venue. Truly a statement invitation.


Wedding Invitation – Love Hearts

Lilac and silver double heart wedding invitations. Card style invitations made for a couple of mine. They ordered wedding scrolls for the wedding reception but needed to cut the budget for the evening reception. I made these invitations keeping with the same colour scheme and heart theme.

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 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.

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.

Photographs to follow.

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

Have a good week. Let’s hope the sun shines.

Topsy Turvy Week

Well, it’s been an eventful week to say the least. Had computer problems. Spent most of the week trying to fix. On the upside, I had some on my wedding invitation scrolls photographed by a professional. I was so pleased with the results my computer disaster faded in the background.


I’ve always wanted my products to be shown in their true beauty, but I can never quite capture it. Photography is not my forte. I’ll leave that to the professionals. Many brides have told me my wedding invitation scrolls  look 1,000 times better in the flesh.  I’m glad they are happy with the products. It’s better to have something they expected rather than something that had been enhanced so much, it doesn’t compare to the real thing. So, what do I do? Photographs that are understated, or photographs that show the true picture? I went for the true picture and wasn’t disappointed.

Wedding Scroll Invitation – Aqua & White – Megan

Wedding Scroll Invitation Megan in aqua

Wedding Scroll Invitation – Megan

I love these colours I’m a big fan of pastel shades. There are not many pink weddings these days, anything pastel I adore. I love this design. It’s so pretty. This is  by far, my most requested design. It can be made in many colourways. The feather and swarovski crystals just give it a special touch.

 Wedding Scroll Invitation – Champagne Gold – Emma

Weding Invitation Scroll - Ella

This is my latest design. I’ve called it Emma.

I love the horseshoe buckle, so sparkly. Horseshoes are a tradition meaning ‘good luck’. What better way to start your future married life, you can’t go wrong. Emma can be made in any colour of your choice. A pearlescent box and matching insert give it the feel of sheer luxury.

Your wedding invitations are the first glimpse your guests will have of your ideas & expectations for your big day, which is why we have designed a stunning choice of traditional & contemporary stationery ranges designed to suit all colour schemes.

Wedding Invitation Scroll – Navy – Imogen

I truly love this design. So sparkly. We girls all love bit of bling. If you want to make a statement, this is for you. A truly luxurious invitation.

This invitation comes in a pearlescent box, with matching insert and rsvp. It can be made in any colour of your choice. It’s a real statement piece.

Wedding Invitation Scroll – Ivory – Elegance

Wedding Invitation Scroll Ivory Elegance

Elegance scroll was original made with just gold and silver satin scroll boxes. I recently had an request for the Elegance design, but with a pearl ivory scroll box. The beauty of this is, I can take one design and incorporate colours from a different design. You don’t have to have what is  on the site. I can tailor to your needs. This invitation comes with a matching RSVP insert printed on an ivory pearlescent paper.

This particular invitation was made with just a hint of silver. The scroll band incorporates an ivory satin ribbon, a narrow silver satin ribbon, a silver heart diamante buckle, finished with 4 tiny swarovski crystals. The insert and matching rsvp insert were printed on an ivory pearlescent paper in a silver font. Trimmed with an ivory satin bow and 2 heart diamantes. I think the colours are beautiful. A very classy invitation.

Wedding Scroll Invitations – Which will you choose?

Nearly all of my designs can be made to match any colour scheme. I pride myself on the fact, I can match all your wedding accessories, from save the date, right through to your wedding reception accessories.

Well, what started as a nightmare week, turned out quite lovely.

I have to mention the lovely Yvonne from www.whitegoldimages.co.uk  that took these lovely photographs and made my week a smiley one! Thank you Yvonne, you are a star! xxx

Butterfly Wedding Invitations

Butterflies seem to be the most popular theme for weddings. I have 3 different butterfly invitation designs, but today I would like to showcase ‘Jessica’ wedding invitation. The invite is a 15cm square card style. This invitation comes in every colour scheme you can imagine. The base card is white, ivory or cream. I use organza sheer ribbon. Organza can be very limited in colours so, it can also be made with satin ribbon.The swarovski crystal trail gives this invite a lovely sparkle. We all love a bit of bling! The most popular colour trend at the moment for weddings is cadbury’s purple & teal.
