Birds wedding invites

Today I thought I would share an image made up of different colour schemes that recent customers have chosen for their Birds in Trees wedding stationery. I love the fact my customers come up with so many different colour combinations that I probably wouldn't have thought of on my own!

My favourites are the red and grey on white chosen by Vicky and Stephen (4th image down) and the sage green and duck egg blue on ivory chosen by Louise and Mark (3rd image down). I've picked these two as the end results look totally different even though everything on the designs except the colours are the same. Colour theory in action ...!

Wedding favours

Wedding favours are something I plan to introduce in the coming months as part of my wedding stationery range. As luck would have it I have had the opportunity to practise recently with the favours for my sister's wedding. I was presented with crackers (with silver charms) for the ladies and a packet of popping candy for the men. Here are the results:

Cracker with navy tag and navy ribbon with the Bride & Groom's names and wedding date.

The text inside the tag.

Popping candy in a glassine envelope with a navy and silver tag.

There was a slight predicament with the crackers which turned out to be Christmas themed. This led to a tedious 2 hours pulling the contents out and replacing with non-Christmas related charms!

I already produce guest books as part of my range of journals but I designed a slightly different front panel and end sheets to fit in with the snowflake them my sister is having for her wedding. (Yes, I know it's August!)
