wallet wedding invitation in cornflower blue with diamante heart

Boutique Wedding Invitation in Cornflower Blue

Our Boutique collection is one of our oldest designs. It is a simple design with satin ribbon and normally made with a sparkling, square, diamante cluster embellishment and personalised with your names.

Clive and Rob contacted us last year and asked us to make their wedding invitations in our Boutique collection in cornflower blue in a wallet style, but asked for a couple of changes to be made. They wanted to change the square embellishment to a crystal heart and wanted an extra layer on the insert to incorporate more of the cornflower blue. The result looked lovely and we will be working on the matching place cards later this year.

All of our wedding invites are available as a pocket, wallet, folded or flat style with the ribbon available in many colours and you can also change the embellishment to suit. We have a large selection to choose from on our website.

A full range of wedding stationery can be made to match including table plans, guest books, menu’s, post boxes.

Glamour Wedding Invitations in Royal Blue – Lace and Diamante with a satin bow

Our Glamour collection has been on our books for many years and is a popular choice for couples looking for a romantic but elegant wedding invitation. We have made many orders in this design and in many different colours as it is so versatile. It is a luxury design made on 300gsm card, with luxurious lace, a satin ribbon bow and is finished with a round crystal cluster embellishment. The inside of the pocket carries on the royal blue colour with matching card and personalised rsvp card.

Jennifer contacted us and ordered the Glamour collection for her daughters wedding in May and chose to have white card with a royal blue ribbon in a pocket style. She ordered wedding invitations, a post box and guest book. We will also be working on a full on the day stationery order later in the year to match the invitations.

Filigree Wedding Stationery Order – Pearl Wedding Invitations in Royal Blue with Satin Ribbon

Filigree Wedding Stationery Order in Royal Blue

Our Filigree collection is one of my favourite designs as it is so simple and elegant with a double layer of satin ribbon and finished with a large pearl and diamante embellishment. The embellishment is very heavy and along with the thick card we use it really is very luxurious.

The Stationery Order

We were contacted by Sally and Claudio back in 2014 who asked us to make a full range of wedding stationery in our Filigree collection in Royal Blue and Ivory. We had made their Save the Date cards and wedding invitations along with all of their on the day stationery so we had been in contact throughout every stage of their wedding plans.

For their on the day stationery we were asked to make a matching table plan, order of service booklets, table name cards and our classic place cards (a satin ribbon bow and single diamante).

They needed a table plan for nine tables plus the top table so needed a large plan which can go up to 14 tables plus the top table and we went for the standard layout of a header card, with a long top table and two rows of tables underneath.

We made matching table number cards on tent style card which can be free standing or put into a holder.

They also needed matching Order of Service booklets. They measure A5 in size and come with a paper insert.

We can make the Filigree collection on white, cream or ivory card and you can choose from many ribbon colours. We are often asked to make this design in cream or ivory but I think the bolder and darker shades really bring out the embellishment.

Colour Themes for Wedding Invitations and Stationery

Colour Themes for a Wedding

We have previously written an article on colour schemes, but that was many years ago and since then we have introduced many new wedding invitations and have made many more orders and have many more photos to share, so we thought we do an updated version.

Choosing a colour scheme for your wedding day is one of the most important decisions as this colour will be involved in most parts of the planning including the flowers, bridesmaid dresses, cake and reception decoration.

Here are some of the main colours used on our wedding stationery starting with neutral shades like white, ivory and cream up to hot pinks and orange.

Neutral Theme

This theme is one of the most popular at the moment and can include, White, Ivory, Cream, Beige, Blush, Taupe and Tan

Neutral Wedding Invitations and Stationery

Blue Theme

There are many shades of Blue to choose from including Ice Blue, Navy, Midnight Blue, Cobalt, Royal Blue, Pale Blue, Baby Blue, Cornflower, Sky, Indigo, Iris, Steel and Sapphire.

Pink Theme

Pink is one of the most popular shades we work with, especially dusky pink or blush pink. It is a versatile colour ranging from a pale blush pink to a vibrant hot pink. Other shades are Rose, Light Pink, Pale Pink, Fuchsia, Punch, Coral, Bubble Gum, Magenta, Hot Pink, Carnation, Cerise and Salmon.


Green Theme

Green has become a popular shade again, especially when used with the Burlap, Hessian and Twine in a Rustic Wedding theme. Sage green is the most popular choice, but we have seen an increase in Mint green recently. Some other shades of green are Apple, Bright Green, Olive, Pistachio, Sage, Hunter, Forest, Dark Green, Emerald, Jade, Lime, Mint and Teal.

The different shades of Red we have used. Burgundy, Crimson, Maroon, Raspberry, Bright Red, Pillar Box Red, Scarlet, Wine and Ruby.

Purple Theme

A couple of years ago Purple seemed to be one of the only colours we used when making the stationery orders with all shades being used. We were using Cadbury Purple, Plum, Aubergine, Grape, Lilac, Lavender, Orchid, Amethyst, Mauve and Heather.

Perfect for a black tie or monochrome wedding. There aren’t many shades of black available, but there are very subtle differences between Jet, Onyx, Graphite and Carbon.

A very popular colour during 2015 and is carrying on into 2016. Glitter has become hugely popular with couples going for bright gold or champagne glitter to add sparkle to their wedding day. Some of the gold shades available are Champagne, Old Gold, Antique Gold, Light Gold and Bright Gold.

Silver & Grey

Silver has also become a popular colour which is mainly due to the popularity of the glitter card. Many stationers have designs using this and couples are using this as a background and are adding their chosen colour to accompany the glitter.

Grey is a popular accent colour for couples and is often seen being used with light pinks, greens, yellows and purples. Some of the shades used are Slate, Gunmetal, Silver and Dove Grey.

Butterfly Lace Wedding Invitations and Stationery – Lace, Royal Blue Ribbon and Diamante Embellishment

Butterfly Lace Stationery Order in Royal Blue

Our Prestige collection has been one of most popular wedding invitation designs since it was launched five years ago. We offer flexibility when ordering your stationery as you can change the embellishment, card and ribbon colour. We have had many requests for the change to be a diamante butterfly embellishment instead of the pearl and crystal that we have introduced it as a permanent invitation collection called Butterfly Lace. It is made with luxurious lace, satin ribbon and finished with a large, sparkly crystal embellishment.

Wedding Table Plan and Table Name Cards

One of our customers to make this change was Christina and Frazer who loved our Prestige collection with the lace, but had a butterfly theme and after a bit of a discussion they felt that the Prestige design with a butterfly embellishment with Royal Blue ribbon would be perfect.

We were asked to make their on the day stationery and ordered a matching table plan and table name cards all made on white card with royal blue ribbon in our Butterfly Lace.

They also had a fabulous theme of Disney films with cute little quotes from the film under the table name and really added extra detail to the cards.

Damask Place Cards and Table Name Cards – Vintage Wedding Stationery

Vintage Wedding Invitation Collection

One of our oldest designs is our Vintage collection. We are usually asked to make our stationery in quite neutral colours, but this collection looks better in darker, more bold colours like Black, Purple or Navy Blue as shown.

Our Vintage design is made with a damask style print and on the invitation it is finished with a personalised plaque and diamante. We had previously made wedding invitations for this customer and they came back to ask us to make their on the day stationery in the same design and colour.  We were asked to make some place cards with printed guest names also in navy blue and table name cards.

The wedding place cards come with guest name printing, the damask pattern and a diamante to finish it off. They measure 10 x 10 cm and can be made on White, Ivory or Cream card.

The Wedding Stationery Order

Vintage guest name cards

To go with the place cards the customer ordered some table name cards which were named after cocktails. These are made in a tent style so they can be free standing or put in a table holder and the customer chose to have them measuring 14 x 14cm square. Normally we would provide these in an A5 size.

Vintage damask wedding table name or number cards

The Vintage collection comes in a full range of stationery including wedding invitations, orders of service and table plans. The invites are available as a pocket, wallet, folded or flat card and can be made in your choice of colours. A photo of the pocket invitation is shown below.
