Have you chosen you stationery yet? Your save the date and invitations will be the introduction to your wedding, setting the scene for what’s to come on the big day – it’s a big deal and exciting to choose!
There are so many choices to make with your stationery; will you give it a go yourself (think bridesmaid production line!), go for elegance with a formal theme, vintage, rustic, modern or maybe you love todays watercolour theme stationery? As I said, lots of decisions to be made!
Watercolour style stationery has become very popular in the past year and for good reason, it is really versatile and can work well with both a bold colour scheme or a muted palette. It can fit nicely in a romantic, boho setting or a colourful and vibrant wedding day.

I’m really really fond of this stationery by Hollyhock Lane.

It’s quirky and bold using swirls of watercolour paint and collaged silhouettes- amazing! Visit Hollyhock Lace for more info.
This stationery is called ‘Inky Floral’ which sums it up beautifully! The freehand illustrated floral pattern which has been soaked in pretty pink watercolour paint is glorious. Visit Eden Stationery, Newtownards for more info.
