Autumn is here and Winter – everyone thinks of winter as a quiet time for weddings but let’s face it, you can’t guarantee sunshine or warmth in Blighty even in August so more and more couples are embracing the colder seasons for their big day!
I have to say some of the most beautiful wedding photography I’ve seen is with a low autumn sun. With winter just around the corner I’m currently designing some wonderfully seasonal stationery for the cosiest of weddings.
Every couple wants their wedding day to be unique and special and a great way to achieve this is with bespoke wedding stationery.
As the seasons change so do designs, you want the best seasonal bespoke wedding stationery vailable; whether you are going for a simple elegant look or something more contemporary Olive Weddings create bespoke wedding invites, on the day stationery and much more.
Autumn makes you think of yellow, orange and red leaves falling from trees, of bonfire night, fireworks and wrapping up warm with a hot chocolate. Deep reds, yellows and browns look wonderful on wedding stationery. Try cream coloured paper and card for an elegant autumnal look and don’t be afraid of natural belly bands that remind of the great outdoors. Why not try dark fonts such as plum and rich burgundy envelopes to complete the autumnal look?
Autumn is all about falling leaves, natural woods so rustic browns are a must; bronze, purple and cocoa are very popular this year or you could go for copper and gold hues matching the colours of seasonal leaves.
Don’t get the winter blues. Get away from the floral look and move into a minimalistic design with stunning calligraphic fonts. How about some seasonal geometric designs in Christmas colours with quirky candy-striped bakers twine turning your invites into presents you would find under a Christmas tree. A winter wedding isn’t supposed to be grey it is supposed to be magical under a deep blue sky with glittering stars; complete your wedding invites with a bespoke belly band in deep blue or metallics.
Winter is a classic season with classic colours, look for ice white or a mixture of white’s, green’s and blues. If you are feeling adventurous why not try red and white striped candy cane colours.
Spring is the season of new growth when the days get lighter and the daffodils come out, especially here in Wales! While green shoots are emerging, you can’t go wrong with spring stationery designs incorporating a range of watercolour florals and leaves or pastel shades of greens and blues. Spring is innocent, so keep your designs simple on bright white card. The sound of birds on a spring morning is a peaceful way to wake up and these can be incorporated in your design on the borders.
Colour schemes are always important for your seasonal designs, for Spring we recommend shades of white, yellow and pale green. Spring is a time of new beginnings and is perfect for a special wedding.
Summer is bold and filled with life, the sky is bright blue; the grass is a vivid green and there is an abundance of deeply coloured flowers. When people think of summer they think of the seaside and long warm days. Florals in brighter, punchier colours are perfect or for a more whimsical summer feel go for deck chairs with repeating stripe patterns. Don’t be afraid to include bolder, brighter colours in a wider range if you are going for a floral look.
Summer is bright, warm and even hazy with a range of colours to choose from; you could incorporate rose and dusty gold shades for a glamorous summer wedding or shades of peach, pinks and ivory for a more romantic tone, alternatively, you can go traditional with bright floral designs.
