Wedding stationery: Colour splash

Say it in colour. Cherry Blossom bespoke stationery by Ananya Cards

Wedding stationery is all about personal touches at the moment, especially when it comes to adding a dash of colour

Wedding stationery may not be number one on your list right now, but plans need to be laid and the good news is that there’s an enormous choice when it comes to wedding stationery suppliers and also to the range of elements to add to make your suite your own. There’s bold and arresting use of colour in many of our favourite wedding stationery designs right now – a sign that couples are increasingly looking to personalise their wedding celebration.

The theme you choose can match the setting or the season, or reflect your chosen backdrop or hue/s. Good too, to see so many invitations being personalised with extra elements – monograms are always chic, but we particularly love the use of illustrations and other ‘significant’ images – be it the wedding location, the church, the place a couple met or their pet dog. As Lewis R. Stevenson of leading bespoke wedding stationery design firm Leeming Brothers notes on his blog, couples these days are much more confident about putting their own stamp on their wedding suite.
