Wedding Stationery Trends for 2016

There are some great new trends coming through for 2016 particularly after years of “vintage”.

We’re seeing many geometric patterns, which is great for those couples who want to make a bold statement with colour and lines.

We have lots of different patterns – all of which are available in pocketfolds, wallets and cardstock so we are only limited by our imagination!


Invitations with Colour!

I love a bit of colour, in fact I would say that Wedding Paraphernalia specialises in colour as I don’t often do plain white, ivory or cream!

Today, I am shipping pretty gold pearlescent diamond flap laser cuts from my Nesbit range – their final destination being Jamaica. The gold gives them a beautiful luxury look – finished with the sparkle of the Swarovski crystals.

Have a lovely time in Jamaica Zena, are you sure you don’t want me to hand deliver??

Black …

Black and white, black and silver, black and red, black and green, black and …… black.

Sarah and Paul’s colour was black and we mixed it with a light silver and a dark graphite, and finished everything with clear Swarovski crystals.

We folded white napkins and finished with a double tied ribbon – black sheer ribbon and a silver satin. Each napkin had a personalised menu; the ladies then had a little white notepad with the bride and groom’s name and the men had chocolate cigars.

Beautiful white roses in black martini glasses graced each table – the white roses were dipped in black ink and finished with crystals by Magnolia Florist.

We finished the tables with black table crystals, clear dewdrops, frosted tealight holders and diamond bubbles – how very sparkly!


Some Exciting News!

I am excited to announce that I now have a beautiful showroom area on the ground floor of The Bridesmaids Room in Market Street Mews, Kettering.

As Mr & Mrs Lambert said about their wedding in August “not only were you the most amazing, super talented, pretty stuff creator, but someone we truly could trust and lean on when wedding meltdowns kicked in! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”

I will be open Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays by appointment only to start with – so come over for a chat and see how I can turn those wedding ideas in your head, into fabulous creations for your wedding day.

Lasercut Wedding Favour Boxes

Lasercut designs have been huge this year and will continue into 2015. Their delicate design fits in well with weddings.

We’ve now increased our lasercut designs into wedding favour boxes and have four designs, all of which are available in pearlised ivory or pearlised white.

Love is like a butterfly ….

Just as Dolly Parton sang; love is like a butterfly! Butterflies represent new life, new beginnings so why not choose butterflies in your wedding theme?

At Wedding Paraphernalia we are loving the new styles of laser cuts that are coming through so would like to share our new Dahl design with you; butterflies and crystals, perfect for a wedding.

We seem to blog a lot about butterflies but what’s not to like!
