Shades Of Winter

Q What is your advice on creating an elegant winter wedding?
A Christian Kelly says: It's important to think about your theme and choose a colour palette that complements the season nicely. For example, many couples at this time of year looking to create an elegant, winter theme opt for luxury silver, rose gold, bronze and gold; all-white themes; or deep, rich colour schemes such as plum, burgundy, dark emerald and navy. It also helps to choose a palette that goes well with your venue's style.

Once you've figured out the perfect colours and overall theme for your big day, it's easy to create a well-thought-out and stylish look. Consistency in your theme can be the key to creating this luxurious, elegant atmosphere while avoiding a laid-back, mismatched style.

Choosing a set of classic and script-style fonts you'll use throughout your wedding stationery and signage also helps to add that air of luxury. One of our favourite seasonal weddings we helped create invitations, menus and signage for was for a couple who'd chosen a deep autumnal colour palette. They worked with us to create bespoke mirrored bronze maple leaf-shaped invitations and place names, which looked stunning with their closely colour-matched floral displays, other signage and bridal party outfits.

Q What style and colour do you suggest for our late autumn invitations?
A Andy Murrell says: Wedding stationery is the first impression your guests get of your big day, which usually reflect your theme. Our autumn wedding range is one such suggestion, with rustic, earthy tones including burnt orange and deep reds. However, for something a bit more contemporary, why not consider navy blue ink with gold metallic hints? If you want your invitations to look more modern, try wooden designs or a combination of rich colour with geometric shapes. Whatever you choose, remember your invites are just a part of the big picture when it comes to your amazing day. And we're always here to recommend a great range of designs that will be right up your street!

Q We're looking for gorgeous stationery for our wedding, but we're not sure what style to go for or what we should be asking our suppliers – help!
A Zoey Robins says: There's no denying that save the dates and invitations are the window to the wedding, the first little peek into what your guests might expect from your big day, the point where your wedding vision starts to become a reality.

We know that every couple, and by extension every wedding, is completely different. That's why having a colour scheme, flowers, wedding season, location and theme in mind, whether that's traditional, modern or themed, will help us in helping you determine stationery that's totally 'you'!

Most couples spend hours browsing the web for big day inspo, from wedding blogs to Pinterest boards, and we recommend bringing that inspiration to your supplier. This will help us piece together your design vision and ensure we're able to envision your dream aesthetic.

Our design team works closely with couples to ensure their wedding stationery is perfect, from save the dates to invitations, favour tags, placeholders and more. Customers are often happy to work from the opinion of our knowledgeable graphic team, offering advice on design to paper type, luxury embellishments and finishing options.

It's also worth considering whether your design will work with your desired paper type and whether you have any constraints surrounding size and, if unsure, ask for paper samples before you commit to placing an order.
