We all know it’s first impressions that count so if you want elegant wedding stationery, here are five dreamy details that your invitations, orders of service and thank you cards simply have to have, say Tigerlily Creations…
Classic, timeless and above all, elegant, lace is a must-have detail for any vintage wedding. An increasing number of brides are now choosing lace wedding dresses, and by using lace as part of your wedding stationery is a clever way to carry this theme throughout the day.
Satin ribbon is sumptuous and glamorous, yet still ties in well with a vintage theme. With a huge range of colours available, it is an excellent way to bring your scheme into your stationery. Subtle shades such as ivory and champagne work well with vintage, while bolder colours work well as part of a more glamorous look. Popular shades at the moment include Royal Blue, Navy Blue, Purple and Sage Green.
Embellishments are a sure-fire way to add the wow factor to your stationery! Larger embellishments can be used to achieve a blingy look and smaller, more understated pearl-based embellishments are best if you are looking for a more classically elegant feel.
Silver or gold foiled and embossed paper overlays are the key to understated vintage glamour. We have a number of designs available featuring foiled papers and this element really does add something a little bit special. It can be used to add texture and depth to the stationery and gives a very unique, expensive-looking finish.
The quality of the card stock is essential and shouldn’t be overlooked. Our signature card is heavyweight felt texture and the quality can be felt when handled – perfect for vintage style stationery. We feel that classic ivory works best with most designs. Our decadent pearlescent card is perfect for a more glamorous style. Adding colour to the card is an excellent tool for pulling elements of your theme together and really bringing your colour scheme into your stationery.
