When it comes to stationery we are unapologetically obsessed. Wedding invites, the rare piece of pleasant mail, arrive as little slices of luxury, proclamations of love and a sign of good times to come.
But here’s why we think invites (and stationery in general) needs to be carefully considered. This is where your wedding day theme begins. If you are opting for a no-fuss, chill-fest of a day then your wedding invites can aid in setting the scene well before your guests arrive. Intending to host one big glamorous shindig? Set the scene with something decadent like D&D Letterpress’ deliciously thick stock or Fabled Papery’s signature luxe velvet envelopes. Stationery is your chance to draw your theme together and show your guests what’s important to you.
The lovely designers listed below will stop at nothing to make your stationery stand out whether they produce handmade paper (A Magnolia Press special) or seal your invites with dried hydrangea and vellum (Here’s looking at you Terrace Press). Nicola Laura Design will even custom illustrate your suite with whatever makes your heart sing.
We have done our best to include all kinds of designers from September Creative who favours bold, bright typography to Wonderland Invites who are all about delicate nature-inspired designs. Minimalist folk, we have you covered too, with the most aesthetic and timeless invites from the likes of Sunday Nude, Peppermint Press and Laura Elizabeth Design. So, heed our advice and do your research here and create something truly special for you and your love to remember your big day by.
