It’s Wedding Season!

Save The Dates

It might be bucketing it down with rain here in the UK (no change there, then) but it’s officially wedding season! Hurray!

I feel incredibly honoured to be asked to create Save The Date cards and wedding invites for our friends, Mille and Calum, who are tying the knot in just under 12 month’s time. Their Save The Dates have just been sent out to their prospective guests and I’m now in the process of crafting their invites.

The happy couple opted for a clean, white style with oh-so-now fonts and white ribbon embellishments – something a bit different for me as I’m usually a rustic, brown-card-and-garden-twine kinda girl but there’s nothing wrong with diversifying!

If you’re planning a wedding and want to incorporate some handmade touches into your big day, get in touch with me and we can discuss your requirements. I can also create pretty ‘Will You Be My Bridesmaid?‘ cards if you’re looking to pop that question to your besties soon.

Or perhaps you’re attending a wedding this summer and simply want a unique, handcrafted card to give to the bride and groom. Have a browse around my Etsy shop and see if anything takes your fancy. I’m also open to commissioned work so if there’s an idea floating around in your mind, tell me about it and I’ll see what I can do!

A customer in the USA recently got in touch with me via my shop to see if I’d be able to hand-punch two small boxes of wedding confetti made from the pages of 2 vintage Jane Austen novels; Northanger Abbey and Persuasion with baby pink and purple accents. I love helping brides-to-be with their with their wedding preparations so I jumped at the opportunity. Susannah was so pleased with the results, she left a lovely review on my Etsy page, which was really heartwarming.

The countdown begins

Our wedding isn’t til 22nd August, 2015 but it’s never too early to start counting down! The sooner you get your arse into gear and decide on your wedding and reception venues, the better, especially if you’re planning on having a summer wedding as venues get booked up quickly. So far, we’re pencilled in with the church but still waiting for a reply from the reception venue.

Make or buy yourself a little chalk board like this one and hang it somewhere in your home where both you and your hubs-to-be will see it every day. That way, you’ll always be aware that the big day is looming and focussed on saving up!

There are also a number of free iPhone apps which will display the countdown to your big day, right down to the seconds left to go! Arrrrrgh!
