Wedding invitations are at the start of every wedding — your first impression, so why not make a statement with a bold, eye-catching opening? Envelope liners have become an on going trend creating the perfect finishing touch, allowing you to truly be creative with fun design elements, such as citrus tropical sceneries, glitter, or a personal detail to perfectly represent the bride and groom’s personality.

The idea of a destination wedding has grown in popularity in recent years, which has resulted in a massive boost in tropical wedding stationery. We do love this bright colourful wedding trend and works great if you want to add a splash of colour to a travel-inspired wedding theme. This trend is perfect for couples looking for that refreshing unique look to their wedding, creating a tranquil and exotic vibe for guests when receiving the exciting news.

Looking for something less traditional? An uprising trend of graphic and geometric visuals have been largely emphasized into a more contemporary wedding theme. This style is perfect for a pattern-loving couple, with a bold and edgy personality. This theme has been widely inspired by the art deco look with a minimal twist on shapes, lines and colours. If this is right up your street, think about travelling back to the Jazz Age with a collection of glamorous wedding stationery inspired by The Great Gatsby.

Metallics have been a must for the year of 2017 and we believe will carry on way into 2018. Glam up your wedding with foiled invitations, ranging from gold, silver, copper and even rose gold. Yes ladies, rose gold is everywhere, iPhone’s, nails and now weddings! Be adventurous and daring with this hard to beat glitzy trend. Mix it up, tone it down, whatever you choose foiling suits a variety of themes whether it is vintage, contemporary, eleghant or pretty.
