If there’s one thing I know Rock n Roll brides want more than anything else, it’s to put their own stamp on their wedding. From what you’re going to wear, to the cake you’re serving, and from the DIY décor to the quirky invitations you’ll send out, it’s all about being unique, being yourself and most of all, having fun! Which is why I’m always thrilled beyond belief when I get to share amazing companies that reflect this ethos with you!

You’ve probably heard of zazzle.co.uk before. They are the home of custom products, from both big brands and indie designers. With manufacturing facilities in California and the UK, you can be sure that these designs are produced to the highest standard – one of the reasons they’re so happy to stand behind their 100% satisfaction policy.

Get the Bespoke Experience without the High Price Tag with Emma Jo Wedding Stationery

Collection 4 Emma Jo

If supporting small and independent companies during your wedding planning is something important to you, then I’d love to introduce you to wedding stationer Emma Jo. Obsessed with all things paper from an early age, Emma has taken that passion and formed her own boutique wedding stationery company. She offers a diverse and ever-expanding collection of beautiful invitations, save the dates and paper goods for weddings.

Wanting nothing more than to provide a relaxed and enjoyable experience for her clients, Emma launched her company in 2009 in response to seeing way too many ‘ordinary’ wedding stationery around. She wanted to design things that were anything but ordinary! She loves nothing more than listening to her couple’s stories and designing their stationery around them.

Anniversary Ticket 2 Emma Jo

“I am so proud of the diverse styles we offer”, Emma told me. “My company may be small but I have big ideas and am always exploring new concepts to give our couples more and better options. For example gold foil printing is super popular at the moment, but many of my couples only require small numbers of invites, are tight on time or simply don’t have the budget to go all out. So I designed the ‘Little Gold Heart’ range with all the luxury of a specialist print with a metallic gold foil heart, but the option to have personalised, and printed in small quantities. This is also a great affordable option compared with fully foiled or letterpress stationery, and these invitations start at £3.40 each including envelopes.”

If fun, funky and colourful wedding stationery is your idea of a damn good time, then you’re going to want to check out Devon-based husband and wife team Swoon at the Moon.

“We completely and utterly believe that it is not our wedding stationery”, they told me. “It belongs to our customers. If they happen to like our designs then great. However, if they need a colour changed, a flower changed, a zebracorn added, completely different wording or even a whole other language, we will make it happen!”

“We have many bright and colourful, existing ranges to choose, but if you want something bespoke we can do that too! Nothing is too much trouble and it’s all done with a smile. We’re lucky enough to be married already so we really appreciate just what peace-of-mind a decent, dedicated supplier does for you when you’re getting hitched.”

With prices starting at just £2.25 per invitation and £1 for Save the Dates, these beautiful designs won’t break the pre-marital bank either. They also do table plans, place cards, envelope liners and pretty much anything else your stationery-loving brain can dream up!

Having a Festival Or Concert Wedding? Check out Wedfest Stationery!

festival-ticket-wedding-invitations

Festival weddings were big in 2012, huge in fact. Then 2013 rolled around and the idea exploded with more tents, tipis and rock concert weddings filling my inbox than ever before. And from the comments and emails that I still get from you guys on a daily basis, I think it’s safe for me to say that this idea really isn’t going anywhere for 2014 brides and grooms. It seems that more of you than ever are channelling your inner festival-goer and planning a wedding to reflect that.

Which is why I was thrilled to recently discover Wedfest. Specialising in festival, boho and Rock n Roll inspired stationery, they are the guys to check out if you’re looking for concert ticket or festival inspired invites. They do say that your invitations are the first things to really set the tone of your wedding with your guests, so what could be better than sending them a gig ticket invite to your Rock n Roll wedding!?

Wedfest offer a wide range of designs and styles throughout their extensive website. Starting with save the dates, going all the way through to table plans and thank you cards, they have something to fit in with whatever you could possibly dream up. I particularly love the idea of sending your guests lanyards and wristbands for them to wear on the day!

Bespoke Illustrated Wedding Stationery from Story House

The Story House Bespoke Illustration Paris

I loved art at school, and while it was clear from an early age that I had very little obvious talent myself, the appreciation for it – in whatever medium – certainly didn’t pass me by. In fact I used to lie on my bed as a lovestruck teenager, desperately attempting to create sketches and renderings of my celebrity crushes (don’t ask) and hanging them on my bedroom wall with such pride, despite their lack of accuracy. I experimented with drawing, painting, charcoals, cross stitch (again, don’t ask!) and finally photography. As I said, I was never really very good at any of them, but the desire to tell stories in my own haphazard way was something that I always felt I needed to do. Thank God I discovered writing later in life or I might still be plaguing the world with my terrible sketches of Christian Slater and Ronan Keating…

But what, pray tell, is the point of yet another one of my embarrassing admissions today?

Recently I was sent these latest designs by Lucy McDonald, an illustrator from the UK, who uses her talent to create one of a kind and bespoke wedding stationery. Through her company, The Story House, she aims to tell her clients’ love stories though her art. And I love them.
