We went for a traditional spring country wedding, I had many ideas and thoughts about what I wanted for our special day, I knew I wanted a fresh spring look with the lilacs and pinks adding a much needed pop of colour but in a subtle and romantic way, I also included some vintage and shabby chic details too.
We chose professional over DIY as I don’t have the patience to sit down and make all my stationery I really admire people who do their own as if it is something you can do then that’s wonderful but I’m not the most arty of people and having a two year old I just don’t have the time. I had in my mind what I wanted so I was lucky that heart invites had the perfect collection.
Well I was lucky enough to win all my stationery in a competition in a wedding magazine something I only entered on the off chance, lucky for me it payed off, wedding stationery is a complete minefield and Lauren made it so easy for me she listened to what I wanted and nothing was ever too much bother, from advice on what I could have, to numerous changes in wording and presentation. I got so many compliments on our stationery from our guests as it was unique and different to the traditional styles you often see. I couldn’t be more pleased with the overall look of the stationery, it also contributed to the shabby chic look I wanted to achieve.
If I could give one bit of advice to couples getting married it is to get your ceremony video recorded as for me the whole service was a complete blur and goes by so quickly that you don’t really take it in as there is so much going on and your full of different emotions, so it is nice too see it back and see it from someone else’s view, you also get to see yourself walking down the aisle and also see your husband nervously sweating at the top of the aisle something you don’t get to see on the day, it also captures the feeling and the emotions that photographs can’t.
