We asked Essex wedding stationery designer Katie Frances Art how to make sure your wedding invitations reflect you as a couple...
With stationery it's great to include elements of you as a couple, so think of things that represent you. This could be a place that's special to you, such as where you got engaged. Perhaps look at including florals in your invitations and then incorporate these flowers into your bouquet on the day.
One of my couples, Greg and Grace, did this brilliantly. They had thistles to represent Greg's Scottish heritage and English roses for Grace. Both of these elements featured in the bridal bouquet. The stags also represented the Highland location of their wedding.
My top tip is to think of the things that make your relationship unique, pinpoint them and pull them into your stationery design. Another simple win would be to hand-finish your invitations. This could be as simple as hand-writing names rather than getting them printed, or choosing a stationery suite that is hand-tied or even has a wax seal on the envelope.
