Are you struggling for wedding invitation ideas? Here’s how to get started!
Your save the dates and wedding invitations are a fab opportunity to give your guests a great first impression of what is to come from your big day. When considering wedding invitations and stationery think about how it reflects your personality and interests as a couple. Are there any particular details you would love to include?
Consider Your Venue
Think about your venue and whether there is a particular style which would be the most suitable. Have a look through your venue’s website and social media accounts to see how previous couples have styled their wedding day for ideas.
For example, a rustic barn venue fits a boho theme beautifully and gives the opportunity to play around with different textures too such as vellum layers and leather place names with white modern calligraphy.
For a city-based wedding you could consider an angled design which gives the stationery a chic and contemporary look. The Olivia stationery collection uses angled edges and can be customised to any colour palette you wish!

Wedding Stationery Collection
Your colour palette is a big decision to make, particularly if you’re going for a cohesive styled look from save the dates, wedding invitations to all the details on the wedding day.
To help with your decision making, I have a curated collection of designs on my website which can all be fully customised to change the colour, add foil calligraphy and printing finishes.
There’s a range of designs from a more minimal design focus with touches of calligraphy such as The Clara stationery collection. Shown here on handmade paper with gorgeous hand torn edges but also available on smooth card.
Or you might want to choose a bolder background colour with shiny foil detail such as The Ella stationery collection. This design combines calligraphy in copper foil with a dark green watercolour background.

Seasonal Wedding Stationery
The season you’re getting married in can also influence your stationery choices. Pale colour palettes are popular for spring weddings, brighter colours for summer, earthy tones for autumn and monochrome or darker palettes are all popular in winter. But ultimately, it’s whichever colour you are drawn to, there are no set rules!
I have Pinterest boards set up for the different seasons for inspiration on wedding stationery. Worth having a look for some more ideas.
Wedding Invitation Samples
I have a range of different wedding invitation samples available to buy to help so you can see what the particular finishes and colours look like, such as the Jenni wedding invitation with grey calligraphy and a watercolour green eucalyptus design. All of the wedding invite samples can be found here.
Bespoke Wedding Stationery
I also offer a bespoke wedding stationery service if you would like something outside of my collection of designs. I work closely with you to design stationery that is one of a kind and truly bespoke to you. Such as this wedding stationery which included deckle edges, gold modern calligraphy, gold leaf accents and bespoke his and hers vow booklets.
