Illustrated Wedding Stationery Inspiration

I've got stationery on the brain this week! I've been trawling the internet looking at wedding invitation inspiration, and have noticed a huge rise in the trend of illustrated wedding invitations. 

Personalized illustrated stationery can create a very unique mood, whether it be cute and fun, vintage inspired, or quirky and romantic. 

Handwritten style typography can make your invitations seem really personal and would suit the more informal or intimate wedding.

Orange flowers

Continuing with our current colour theme of orange weddings, I've spent all morning looking at gorgeous orange floral arrangements. Here are some of my favourite, I'm a big fan of orange wedding bouquets as you will see!!

Orange gerbera bouquet

I LOVE the idea of using pumpkins as part of your decor. Look at this fabulous centerpiece, a white pumpkin filled with orange and yellow flowers.

Orange contrasts beautifully with light grey. I also love the vintage inspired buckle on the bouquet.

Rain, Rain, Go Away....

Has anybody else been feeling frustrated at the unpredictable weather lately? Getting married in Ireland means rain is always a possibility, but certainly not one that should ruin your wedding day.

A very important item for your big day should be the emergency brolly. Find something unique and incorporate it into your wedding theme, and maybe even your photos!

Here are some examples of how umbrellas can really add some character to your day and become a fabulous accessory rather than an annoying neccessity!

Orange Weddings

Orange is a warm, stimulating, exuberant colour, known for it's mentally stimulating and sociable qualities. It is also representational of transitions in nature.

It is less intense or aggressive than red, calmed by the cheerfullness of yellow. Orange is often synonymous with autumn, yet brighter oranges are a summer colour.

Here are some ideas of how to incorporate orange into your wedding day!

For an autumnal wedding, you could consider using rich earthy tones with warm shades of orange or burnt orange, which look fabulous with cream and gold.

Bright oranges can be used for a zesty splash of colour, or more subdued shades of pale orange can create a very sophisticated feel.

Orange also looks fantastic with deep purple, or tiffany blue, for a fun colourful wedding.

More posts about orange weddings coming soon!

Real Wedding: Roseann & Daryl

Roseann & Daryl have been together for nearly 13 years & after that long & two beautiful children they decided it was finally time to tie the knot & become mr & mrs.

Roseann came to us unsure of a wedding venue & we visited a number of venues in the south east until Lyrath Estate in Kilkenny was booked {even though Daryl hadn't had a chance to visit}

We provided all of the wedding stationery, which was custom designed by Roseann to include the lace elements from her wedding dress.

The cake was never a huge priority for Roseann & Daryl but we came up with a simple & classic 3 tier design, again incorporating lace elements.

From the beginning it was decided the room decor should be black & ivory, in-keeping with the black tie wedding, & every detail executed this chic theme, including the personalised M&M's.

The ballroom was carpeted in black & the walls draped to transform a vast modern space into a chic classically styled environment.

An oval table was chosen as the head table & all the tables were named after pubs & clubs in their local town- which went down a treat with the guests.
