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.

The following illustrated wedding invitations by Eloise Timmis create a cute and personalised feel, yet maintain a note of elegance through their colour schemes and clean design. Beautiful.

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!
