If you are planning your wedding for December and if you love Christmas then why not combine the two and have a sumptuous Christmas themed wedding?

Most people associate red and green colours with Christmas but with a little imagination and good design you can incorporate a much subtler pallet for your theme, as stationery expert Kate Lewis explains…


If you like a little sparkle then snowflakes should be a key theme element as they can work really well with soft greys and blue colours mixed with the traditional white and can transform your wedding into a classy Christmas themed affair. Using some sparkly glitter or crystals to you invitations you can set the scene of your winter wonderland wedding without being over the top.

On your big day continue this theme with crystals and silver sprinkles on your tables. Maybe you could even use some silver Christmas baubles as place card holders!

For a more rustic Christmas theme try mixing dark reds with rustic browns and creams. You don’t have to stick with the traditional Christmas elements; if you like butterflies, have butterflies! I’ve added a touch of raffia and some stars to these butterfly invitations which instantly transforms them to fit this theme perfectly!

To bring the rustic feel indoors why not use pine cones on your table and slot in your place cards! Use holly as simple but very festive table decorations, even better if you can find some growing in your garden!

Kate Lewis’ top 3 stationery trends for 2013



With so much going on in the world I predict that couples will want to bring a real element of fun to their weddings. My bride and groom characters can be drawn to ‘match’ you both! I already have a few 2013 couples from the military using my bride and groom sketches complete with uniforms! The groom in a kilt is also sure to make you smile!


Birds have been big on the fashion scene for a while now and it is only a matter of time before they take the wedding world by storm. What could be cuter than a couple of lovebirds – that is of course why you are getting married! Birds are also a great detail idea if you’re planning a 1920s themed wedding.

Homemade with style

The DIY scene has been enormous, but I think couples are starting to want that ‘homemade-look’ but without unsightly blobs of glue and bits falling off! My stitched fabric artworks which are then digitally reproduced fit this look perfectly! Professionally homemade is the way to go in 2013!
