New Collection: Floral Vellum Invitations

Floral Vellum Invitations… Beautiful, elegant, sophisticated and minimal. Classic and timeless. With this collection, you can find everything you’re looking for in an invitation.

We created this invitation collection with the need of a floral addition to our vellum invitations as florals have been one of the best and long term trends in wedding stationery industry. As we prefer simplicity and minimality in our invitation designs, we stayed with calligraphy-only designs for a long time and with the need of a floral look, a new questions arose last year: Shall we include floral vectors in our collections?

Then some of our clients started e-mailing us saying “We really love your vellum invitations but can we use your floral patterns on the belly bands instead of the usual ones?” – And the answer was Yes, we would love that!

Our Vellum Collection is perfect for brides and grooms looking for the simplest and minimalist invitations, but for couples in need of floral invitations, we decided to create our Floral Vellum Invitation Collection.

As our aim has always been creating the best items for newly engaged couples, and staying in our own style, Floral Vellums have been the best for this need. They are still minimal, calligraphy-only designs, with the addition of lovely vellums and wax seals, but besides that, they now have a sweet touch of florals!

If you haven’t decided for your wedding invitations yet, if you have no idea which design will suite you best or which items you need, you can search on our Blog to see more information on wedding invitations.

Ordering your Wedding Invitations: Everything You Need to Know About Wedding Stationery

Most couples might think invitations are the last part of wedding planning – not to mention that this is not real for some of paper addicts like us! – but as to be more realistic, your invitations should be ordered way before than you imagine.

It is because we are talking about paper card stock here, and sometimes they may need to be re-printed, sometimes they may not be in enough quantity – you may have more guests to invite than you thought and sometimes you remember an old friend you want to add to your list – and you may have to order another round of invitations which will be more costly, and besides all these, the earlier is always the best as most of the weddings are held in summer and your guests would love to know about your special day before planning their summer trips! So earlier is better when it comes to wedding stationery.

This is also another reason why we suggest you to send out your Save the Dates as early as you can and let everyone know that you are getting married.

Save the Dates help you a lot as they are a perfect way to tell people to save your date but you don’t have to let them know about the venue – you still will need to write the location, either it is in town or out of the town – and you will have more time to clear up your mind about the venue and either you will go with your favourite or more budget friendly one – or maybe your favourite one is the more budget friendly one, in this scenario, you’re the luckiest bride ever! – You will give your guests the venue details in your second invitations which will be your exact wedding invitations.

Choosing your wedding invitations might be a challenging task as you have no knowledge of any card stock or how your invitations will look in real with your names on it. At this point, we definitely suggest you to contact your favourite wedding stationer, and ask all your questions.

Is 300 gsm card stock is a good quality for wedding stationery?

Shall I order my invitations earlier?

When shall I order my wedding invitations?

How may additional invitations do I need to order?

What type of wax seals look best with this design?

Shall I include information cards too?

How long does it take to prepare a wedding invitation?

When will I be able to get my invitations?

We know you have many more questions in your mind and the best way to know all about these is to ask your questions to a professional, in this case to the stationer itself.

So get in touch with your favourite wedding stationer – hope this is us! – and ask all your questions. We stationers love talking about paper card stock, we love talking about the details, we love talking about invitation designs. And we are happy to be a part of your wedding day!

A Lilac Wedding for Lavender Lovers

Lilac is a lovely colour but not always an easy option! Brides (and grooms) who love lavender and would like to use lilac as their primary colour on their wedding day should be very careful about not to exaggerate it as lilac is a one of the strongest colours among all the pastels.

What we offer for engaged couples looking for lilac wedding ideas would be to add some touch of lilac to their wedding day by using it in some little details and leaving the rest white (and green if you’re planning to have a garden wedding or an outdoor wedding in some sort of).

How can you use lilac in your wedding? How to style your wedding day with lilac? How to plan a lavender theme wedding? Firstly bridesmaid dresses! They definitely should be in lilac. You floral designer can also add a bit of lavender but not in everything, just a little touch of it would look great. Maybe the mom of the bride could also wear a beautiful dress that is lilac and that’s all.

Another lovely detail that would complete your lilac wedding without standing out too much would be to order your wedding invitations in lilac. As your guests receive their wedding invitations beforehand and the invitations can generally not be seen in the wedding venue, that would be a nice and sweet detail everybody will remember later on.

The Best Planning Timeline and Advices for Your Wedding Day

Congratulations! You are engaged now and can’t wait to start planning your wedding day. But wait, you don’t know how to plan your wedding, because you’ve never done it before!

This is something every bride and groom can experience and you don’t need to panic. Here, we will be giving you some advices which you can use for your wedding day, too. It is true this is the first time you are getting married, but we all know you’ve been actually planning it all those years, even before meeting your future husband, is that right?

GET MOVING NOW!

You still have one year to finish everything, so you think you can take it easy and spread it to the year? No, this would be the worst mistake of your life!

You will go crazy for the last few months, if you don’t start planning early. We don’t mean to finish everything months before your wedding, but we advise you to finish the big tasks earlier, and leave the small details to the last months.

BUDGET

You need to know how much you can spend on your wedding day. This will give you and idea of overall, but be sure there will always be extras you’ve never thought of before and you will be exceeding your budget limit if you don’t slice them to categories. Write everything down; wedding dress, wedding cake, wedding planner, wedding invitations, even the smallest details such as your tiara, your wedding shoes, your wedding bouquet… You must keep every detail in your mind to prevent too many extras to arise later on!

WEDDING DRESS AND ACCESSORIES

If you have a clear idea of how your wedding dress will be, then you can start asking for quotes by sending e-mails to your favorite brands. Make a price list including every quote in the list and keep this next to you while deciding on which shops to visit first. A wedding gown can be bought 8-12 months prior to the wedding. Don’t ever make the mistake of leaving it to the final tasks and order it in the last 3-4 months! Wedding industry is a busy industry and your favorite designer/shop owner may not be able to prepare your wedding dress in such short notice. Besides that, you should always leave some time for any issues both caused by you and your designer. If you have plenty of time to fix the issues, you will never be stressed out before your wedding day.

Accessories can be bought from the same shop, so you may want to search for them at this stage of planning, too.

INVITATION

We always suggest you to order your invitations 6-8 months prior to your wedding day. Leaving it to the last few months would be a big mistake. Invitations can be designed in approx. 2-3 business days and printing takes about 6-7 days. If you are ordering from abroad, then add some 4 weeks to this timeline, too. Again, leave yourself some time for any issues such as typos and a few days for assembling if your order needs assembly.

Besides all, you and your guests will need some time to deliver all the invitations, replying back with RSVP cards and etc.

WEDDING PLANNER

If you have a separate budget for a wedding planner, then go for it! Wedding planning is her/his daily job, but you have some other things to do during the day for sure! Your wedding planner will reduce the stress and help you pay attention to the smallest details that you didn’t even think of.

WEDDING VENUE

We all know most of the venues are reserved about 1 years prior to weddings and this may sound crazy, but they have a very strict schedule as they generally operate only on weekends and they have a few rooms/gardens they can offer their clients. Once all the rooms/gardens are reserved by someone else, you will have no chance of reserving that venue of your dreams!

WEDDING SHOES

We believe this is one of the most important things, even though it is always underestimated by many brides. You will walk on those shoes all day long, so you will surely need a very comfortable pair of shoes for your wedding day. Buying a pair and giving no importance to your comfort would be the biggest mistake. It is important you have a fabulous pair of wedding shoes of course, but more importantly, you should feel comfortable in those shoes to be able to dance all night long!

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

One of the most important things about a wedding day is the wedding photographer, because whatever you prepare for your wedding day – a beautiful wedding gown, a perfect pair of shoes, a pretty floral tiara, a fantastic music band… – they will not be remembered unless they are captured by a good wedding photographer.

Make an appointment with a few of your favorite professional wedding photographers or at least make a skype call if they are far from where you live, but make sure you get to know them before booking your day. Again, you will need to book your wedding photographerabout 9-12 months prior to your wedding.

HONEYMOON YAAAY!

Whether it is a summer vacation in Bali or a winter honeymoon in Alps, book your hotel and flights at least 6-8 months before. Flight rates might increase when the date gets closer and hotel rooms might not be available and you may need to go for another hotel which you wouldn’t prefer otherwise!

LAST FEW MONTHS

Small details like wedding cake, wedding day stationery, food, music and selection of songs can be done 3-4 months prior to wedding. We suggest you to finalize every detail about 1 month prior, as you will need some extra time to stress out and get ready for your wedding day emotionally.
