Create unique, quirky stationary your guests will never forget.
TO E-VITE or NOT TO E-VITE?
Since ours is the age of technology, it’s no surprise that many aspects of the wedding-planning journey have turned digital – especially in terms of couples using electronic invitations or website to invite their guests and organise their big day.
Creating wedding invitations has become more affordable and efficient with the rise of e-vites – basically online invitations that your guests can respond to via email.
Your creative version can easily be brought to life with the massive range of DIY editing software that’s available (often for free) online. Alternatively, you can seek the expertise of a pro graphic designer to help create your perfect invitation.
At the same time, we also know that having beautiful stationary is a big part of the wedding experience. You could combine old and new by crafting hand-copy invitations for older guests anf your nearest and dearest, and sending e-vites to the rest of your guest list.
Another really great option is using e-vites or Facebook to send out save-the-date and RSVP cards. Once everyone has confirmed, you can send traditional invitations, outlining all the wedding details, to those who will be attending.
Take inspiration from greats such as Kandinsky and Matisse, whose abstaract art styles are sweeping the globe once more.
Add a little something different to each table with exquisite custom-made coasters, which can double as take-home wedding favours.
Keeping it simple is a timeless and elegant way to design you stationary. You can never go wrong with low-key colours, patterns and textures.
Make your guests feel like VIP’s by giving them each a wristband. Either include these as part of your wedding invitations or display them near your seating chart. Decorate the bands with your favourate quotes ot the order of the wedding proceedings.
Using a pastel watercolour palette is a stunning way to incorporate subtle hints of your chosen colour without being too flashy.
Bring back childhood nostalgia (remember the joy of finding s temporary tattoo in your lucky packet) with a tattoo station. The kids especially will love this little favour, and the older guests are sure to get involved too, once they get a peek of the fun customised designs.
