When planning your big day I think a wedding invitation is important. Unless you are sending out save the date cards it is the first snippet of your wedding theme that your guests get to see. I feel like they set the scene for your wedding. There are so many wedding invitation suppliers out there that finding the perfect one isn’t always easy.
Having a recommendation is important, or even finding someone who will send out sample packs for you. Even if you have to pay a small fee, I would highly recommended doing this. Having the sample means you are able to see what the quality is like before placing a large order, and it not meeting your expectations.
I recently came across Borrowed and Blue Design over on twitter. An on-line wedding stationery shop. Designed and owned by Hayley, a professional graphic designer, who kindly offered to send me out a couple of her sample packs to have a look at.
Borrowed and Blue Design stock an ever growing range of house designs. The popular house designs are all personalised for you, with some changeable elements. There is also a bespoke service, designing wedding stationery that is completely customised for you. I was sent two different styles. Both quite different from the other.
This beautifully floral design was the one that caught my attention on Twitter. It all arrived bound with twine. Pretty red, pink and peach shades of roses and peonies. The quality of these cards can be felt straight away. They are slightly textured, which gives a vintage vibe. Set as a square invitation and save the date cards. They arrive with vintage feel unbleached kraft envelopes. The pretty invite arrives with bound with lovely twine and a ‘you’re invited’ tag. In addition there are RSVP cards and matching envelopes, making sure your guests can easily reply.
I really like this design, I can see it fitting in with almost any wedding that has floral vintage feel. Perfect for summer weddings. With prices starting from just £0.45, you are able to mix and match the different elements to suit your wedding style and budget.
Chic Celebration is a more chic, contemporary design and colour way. Peach shades with copper tints throughout and geometric patterns. It’s an eye catching glamorous style that really works well together. The quality is of Chic Celebration is beautiful, printed on to pearlescent card, with a smooth finish. All coming together with a pretty peach coloured ribbon. Chic Celebration comes with plain white envelopes which makes the invitations really stand out.
I love that it gives a timeless feel to your wedding stationery. However, if the colours are not quite how you would like them, then it can be changed to match your wedding colours. With the prices starting from just £0.70 for the ‘you’re invited’ tags. Again, you are able to choose the elements that work for you and for your wedding.
Hayley at Borrowed and Blue Design also offers a wonderful bespoke service allows you to create a design that is personal and unique to you. Hayley will work with you every step of the way to help design the perfect stationery that meets all of your requirements. Using the bespoke service means that you have a blank canvas to work from. The colours, the fonts, the design. All the way down to the finer details, like the ribbon or the envelope liners. You get everything possible with this wonderful service.
