Stationery is having a renaissance and a huge part of this growing trend is personalised wedding invitations with a designer twist. No longer limited to the traditional black and white embossed cards that our parents once sent, today’s wedding stationery is design-led, incorporating bold colour, contemporary motifs and floral patterns. With PAPIER, there’s no waiting around for weeks for the finished designs, your entire wedding suite can be personalised in an instant and delivered into your hands within days.
Ultimately, choosing stationery designs should be fun and easy while still saying something special about your nuptials to come. Driven by a collective of British design talent, today’s stationery revival is definitely as much about convenience as it is design and quality. From once being an expensive and drawn-out experience, creating wedding stationery is now a quick and accessible style statement. For a really co-ordinated sense of occasion, brides-to-be are choosing to follow their design theme through from the invitation to the save the date cards, place cards and menus.
Don’t over think it though, go with the designs and patterns that you instinctively like – this is your big day and it’s best done your way. The easiest way to navigate the myriad of designs is to order a handful of samples to help pinpoint whether colours and composition meet your expectations. Any good stationer will turn around premium paper samples within 48 hours so there’s no need to hold up the planning process.
You can either be guided by what’s trending right now or go for something more classic. Floral is always a popular choice for spring and summer weddings and London illustrator Emily Robertson’s designs offer some of the most popular wedding suites at British, online stationer Papier. Robertson’s blossoming wedding invitations feature painterly designs of geraniums, alliums, roses and palm flowers, while others are interspersed with forest-green ferns bursting with freshness. Blue is another shade in demand this season and the midsummer suite by Bow & Arrow Press is fast becoming a bestselling collection.
A popular look for a city wedding is the marbled rose design which oozes a cool and contemporary chic look. Blush pink is also having a moment in wedding stationery right now. Blush dusk is an increasingly popular variation on this theme and we adore the fun yet stylish blush confetti suite by Bow & Arrow press.
Once the wedding celebrations are over, ease the formidable task of saying thank you to your nearest and dearest for being both there on the day and sending gifts. To mark the first time you sign off as Mr and Mrs, the ‘ride for two’ bicycle design thank you cards are quirky and cool. And before you know it, it’ll be time to order those baby arrival cards, too…
