• Wedding Bellissimo!

    A million apologies for not keeping peeps posted of what's been going on lately but the first part of the year has been a bit of a blur through one thing and the other and it's only now I've slowed down enough to sit myself down and write!

    Rewind back to the love-steeped month of February which was the final destination in the wonderful wedding of Lucy & Phil. With a distict Italian travel theme influencing their stationery suite, their 'Save the Dates' gave guests the first hint of the flavour of their wedding.

    After a proposal on a romantic break in Italy, a vintage Italian postcard sent to all guests seemed a prefect idea. With four handpicked locations as the images and an accent of a dusky purple in the classy decorative scripted font choice, Phil and Lucy and their lucky guests were just delighted with the results.

    Next stop were the formal invitations... In a continuation of style and theme of the initial stationery items, the invites were also printed on a thick, luxurious, smooth marbled ivory board with a classic vintage appearance. Font choice and colour theme were consistently applied. (The purple colour introduced from the offset was a clue to the bridesmaid dress and floral choices on the big day itself...)

    With a travel wallet style printed with vintage map images these invites were designed to impress. Encased within these wallets was the airmail finished invitations with a perforated, detachable luggage tag RSVP alongside an adorable tiny pre-printed brown manilla postal envelope. Mounted on the inside flap was also an insert detailing any additional information the guests would need to prepare adequately for the forthcoming event.

    To finish the invitation off and really give guests the wow factor was a bit of bling at Lucy's request. The wallet was wrapped and bound in a gorgeous purple and cream baker's twine with a silver charm enbellishment. Bellissimo!

    This brings us then to the final installment of Chilliefish offerings in the 'on the day' stationery. Inkeeping with their existing theme (as always) each of their tables had an Italian destination as a name. With a subtle watermarked image of the city with airmail stripes border and encased in a fine decorative crisp white frame with silver charm embellishment, these table names oozed class and sat beautifully on the flawess white table linen.

    Simple tented place cards with an olive branch motif complemented the tiny rustic styled truffle box favours which were finished with a little olive sprig.

    The Table Plan was a labour of love! Each table was represented by a postcard adorned with a glittering purple pin which was linked with twine to the exact location on a vintage Italian map. Each postcard was also finished with an image on the postal stamp of the location it detailed.

    As I always say - the devil is in the detail.

    Congratualtions to Mr & Mrs Braithwaite!

    Mrs C.
