Finally, we've started a new year and we're in 2021, and what better time of year to start wedding planing.
Q:We're planning to get married in October 2021 and want to celebrate the season with an autumn theme. How can we reflect this in our wedding stationery?
Kimberley says: Colours are key for an autumnal wedding. Deep reds, burgundy and plum tones with mustard, orange and shades of brown are all great for that warm inviting feel. Including seasonal elements like illustrations of leaves, foliage and pumpkins are also ideal. I love this time of year too and have created an autumn-themed wedding stationery suite featuring pumpkins and falling leaves. You can pair the invitation with a range of extras such as a luxurious vellum wrap, envelope liners and wax seals for an extra special touch. Continue the theme with your on-the-day stationery including order of the day cards to match your invites, place names, table numbers, table plans, menus, order of service and more for a fully coordinated look. If you have a specific idea in mind you can always opt for a bespoke design service to get the wedding stationery of your dreams!
