CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING STATIONERY COLOUR THEME

Your wedding stationery gives you an opportunity to reflect your unique personality and tastes in the lead up to and on your big day. The wedding save the dates and invitations give your guests a taste of what is to come, so start off with a great first impression!


How do I choose colours for my wedding stationery?

Start by considering the season your big day is happening, perhaps you’re inspired by florals which you could base your wedding palette around. Or if you’re having a winter wedding you might consider a deeper jewel tone such as a dark green or blue. Summer weddings tend to go for pale pastels or summer brights such as coral, while an autumn colour scheme means warm ochre and orange. Your wedding venue might sway you into a particular theme such as rustic or you might already have a favourite colour already in mind.


This is where my curated collection of designs comes in useful. Available on my website you can browse the collection for inspiration. All of the stationery collections can be customised to suit your wedding colour scheme. There’s lots of options for finishing touches printing and foil too!


Pink Wedding Invitations

Often favoured by spring and summer wedding couples, blush pinks will always be a popular choice for a soft and romantic look.


The Faith stationery collection is one of my classic designs and blush pink and gold is always a popular combination. The gorgeous gold foil really pops on the hand painted pink watercolour background.

Stationery with angles is having such a moment for a cool, contemporary look as shown on The Olivia stationery collection. Love how she’s a little different from the rest!

Once you have your wedding invitations designed you can then extend your style to a full suite of stationery for on the day too, such as this lilac watercolour background table name, which matched the suite of stationery used for this wedding.

I love seeing how a colour palette comes alive on the wedding table. Here the pale lilac menu is beautifully accessorised with blooms, accompanied with gold cutlery and neutral china and linens. The pop of lavender really complements the lilac too. There are lots more styling ideas from wedding shoots on my blog posts.

Green Wedding Invitations

Green paired with copper foil creates a gorgeous, luxe look as seen on The Ella stationery collection. The big, bold bouncy calligraphy really makes a statement against the luscious rich green watercolour background. This always makes me think of colder, winter weddings.

Crisp white and watercolour green foliage is a classic combination for weddings and the options are endless for stationery and signage on your big day. The Amelia stationery collection is perfect for a rustic, greenery filled wedding.

Blue Wedding Invitations

I love using navy for a rich air of opulence. The Chloe stationery collection combines delicate calligraphy with hand painted watercolour and crisp clean lines. A perfect mix of pattern, texture and colour which can be designed in any colour!

Dusky, pale blue tones are so popular at the moment and I can totally see why! This example is The Lauren stationery collection which has a laid back, luxe vibe.

Grey Wedding Invitations

Grey is a neutral palette of dreams from slate to dove grey shown on The Emilie stationery collection, perfect for a modern couple.

Grey looks so chic when paired with silver foil modern calligraphy such as The Rachael stationery collection. Hand drawn modern calligraphy, serif fonts and a classic layout are the perfect combination for a traditional wedding invitation but with a modern twist.

The grey palette can continue throughout your big day, for example in this wedding where the table plan was a printed grey fabric banner with white calligraphy, teamed with stunning blooms.

White Wedding Invitations

Crisp white stock is a perfect base for modern calligraphy using foil. The simple typographic styling with the hot rose gold foil on The Eloise stationery collection creates a contemporary and sophisticated design.

By choosing a white background it creates lots of opportunities to choose a bold envelope or bellyband details to pull the invitation design together. The Rosie stationery collection features hand drawn foliage illustrations on the bellyband.

Monochrome always looks cool, classy and elegant. The Carmen stationery collection combines hand written calligraphy, luxury gold foil and refined typography, paired against crisp white and black tones.

Black Wedding Invitations

Black card as an invitation base is very contemporary chic. Adding a gold or silver foil brings an air of elegance to the design as shown on the stunning wedding invitation in The Georgia stationery collection.

Orange Wedding Invitations

Orange looks great when combined with earthy, muted tones. The gorgeous rich tones used here are softened with warm neutrals across the wedding stationery suite. This colour palette is a version of The Hollie stationery collection.
