One of my resolutions for this year was to write more blog posts! I sat myself down and wrote a list of things I think you could be interested in or topics that might be helpful when it comes to making decisions about wedding stationery and wedding planning in general. An idea that floated to the surface of my mind was wedding trends, there are so many different themes, colours and ideas out there on Pinterest and beyond! I thought I'd kick things off with Pantone's recently announced Colour of the Year for 2018- Ultra Violet.Read More
"Do you remember the 16th night of September...?"
Oh ok, it doesn't quite fit... But everything else within this blog will, I promise!
Today I'm giving you a little look behind the scenes at the lovely designs I worked on for Alice and Steve's tipi wedding in September! I've talked about the process behind creating a bespoke design before, this time I wanted to go into some more detail and show you how wonderful the result really can be. This design began a little differently to others, so lets get into it!
I have a very brief post for you today... First of all, I'd like to get you into a festive mood!
Halloween is long gone, and I think we've got enough of November out of the way for it to be socially acceptable to make a Christmas playlist!
So hit play below, and dive right in...
Now, some of you may be wondering... "Bespoke design? What is bespoke design? Isn't everything you do bespoke? It has our names on it after all..." Before I dive in and explain a just how the bespoke design process works with me, I thought I should at least give you a bit of an explanation of what bespoke design is.
Let's start with the stereotypical wedding speech opener... Oxford Dictionary defines the word 'bespoke' as "made for a particular customer or user".
While that is true for all of my designs, as they are made to order with your particular wedding details, bespoke design goes further than that. Bespoke design means that I start completely from scratch, I take all of your ideas and inspiration and make something completely new- and completely you. This means you have complete control of the colours, the font styles, whether or not you want flowers, if you want a drawing of you or of your venue... the list goes on. It gives you the perfect opportunity to make everything centre around your personalities as a couple.
What’s in an invitation? That which we call an invite, by any other name would do the trick… or something like that... Like Shakespeare, I could wax lyrical about the things you can, should and shouldn't include in a wedding invitation, but there are much more important things for you to be spending your time worrying about. As long as your guests know where they're going, when they're to arrive, and what it's all in aid of, then you've cracked it. You can stop reading now!
If you're interested in a deeper dive, please feel free to carry on...
