You’ll need to find inspiration from somewhere, whether you opt for bespoke Wedding Stationery or DIY Wedding Stationery.  So how do you find it? There are many sources of inspiration. If you really have no idea at all about what you want, think about things like you favourite colour(s), your hobbies, likes and dislikes. Have you been to other weddings recently? What did you like/not like? Traditional? Modern? Eclectic? Themed: (Steampunk/1920s/English Garden Party)? Pinterest is always a good starting point too.

So, how do you turn your inspiration into reality? Where do you start?

I suggest you start by making a mood board. This can be a physical thing or virtual; an A3 or A4 board with pictures, colour charts, fabric and lace swatches, anything that makes you feel good, or create your own Pinterest board – My Wedding Inspiration!(?)

Find the common elements and plan from there.

OK! so you now have at least some kind of ideas. What do you do next?

If you decided to go down the DIY route, take a little look at one of my earlier blogs – DIY Stationery? Or not? Make up a rough idea of what you think and then research what embellishments and card are available. You can then discuss your ideas with me, Gaynor at Topikki and book a workshop to give you production tips and continued help and advice.

Deciding to have bespoke Wedding Stationery works well if you don’t want to, or don’t have the time to do it yourself, but want something a little more than is available in the Designer Portfolio. Unlike with DIY, it’s not essential to have  a  rough design made up, unless your inspiration led you to an idea.

Book a free*, no-obligation Consultation where your ideas can be discussed and receive advice on what will work and what won’t.

 Initially, after the Consultation, you will pay a fixed fee for the design service, after that the cost per card will be no different to a similar style in the Designer Portfolio. The other thing that you get for going bespoke is exclusivity on the design for one year, until your first wedding Anniversary.

Happy researching!
