I love a new ‘find’, especially when they come as pretty and unique as these do.
Jessica is a fellow August bride-to-be and whilst creating her own idea of the perfect ‘Save the Date’ realised that her creation is good enough to sell. Bravo to Jessica for starting a business whilst planning a wedding…this is clearly a bride with some gusto!
So I’ll hand you over to Jessica for all the details but congratulations and good luck for what is sure to be a fantabulous W-day!
Since making save the date magnets and stickers for my own wedding I started having other brides and grooms asking if I could make them for their forthcoming weddings too. My products have been featured on various blogs, were also picked to be sold on a boutique wedding website called www.rubyanddiva.com and were at the ‘Wedding Event of a Difference’ wedding fayre organized by Save the Date magazine.
The design/theme of the products can be adapted to any wedding theme. I love when a bride comes to me asking for a new design, as I can then get my creative flair flowing again! I’ve had people making orders from all around England, Ireland and Australia.
The magnets are a great way for guests to stick on their fridge and the stickers can be stuck in a diary. I think it’s a great alternative way of having a save the date, as paper just gets lost so easily.
This bride created the stationery herself and this is the result…high five to talented brides!

Using the idea of bunting for your stationery is perfect for a country themed wedding; it is so simple and evokes such a strong sense of your day.
I love the last image which is ‘save the date bunting’ which your guests would take out of the envelope and hang up to read the message. Perfect for any budding DIY-ers!
I love the idea of centralising your stationery around vintage tickets, especially if you’re hosting a destination wedding.
Although, they are just as perfect for any couple who love travel, movies or concerts by tailoring it specifically to yourselves.

Order of Service
Your Order of Service for the ceremony doesn’t have to be boring. Even if you are creating your own at home then take some ideas from the collection above.
I love vintage birdcages, almost as much as I love lanterns!
I think that they look awesome as part of your stationary, especially if you are planning on using them throughout your day.
Here are some of my favourite birdcage inspired stationery ideas:
I love the Bicycle motif for any wedding day, its elegant and vintage all rolled into one. These are some of my favourite designs currently out there….

Stationery is the first time your guests get a sense of your wedding day and so it can often feel like the pressure is on to get it right. I am lucky enough to have a wonderfully talented sister in law (to be) who designed and created ours, but for those who do not have this luxury there are some brilliant options out there.
The quirkiest of the bunch has got to be these wedding tea towels. They offer a unique way to make your invitation stand out from the rest, although do remember that they may end up drying dishes far sooner than you may like.
Another quirky way to go is to get yourself caricatured, although I would always worry exactly how my chin would come off.
A new and uniquely beautiful type of stationery is carried out by laser cutting, they offer intricate designs and a timeless look.
Pop-up stationery is a beautiful way to ensure your invitations receive the right kind of attention.
For traditionalists, letterpress printing is something to consider, it gives a beautiful finish to your stationery.
In The Treehouse is one of my favourite websites to look at. They offer colourful, fun and innovative stationery ideas.
And finally, for those in need of a working map to place into your invitations then look no further.
