Spring Wedding Inspiration

Spring has finally sprung and nothing lifts our wintry slumber more than seeing pretty flowers start to bloom. The transition season between winter and summer, sees days getting longer and temperatures warming, filling us with lots of fresh inspiration for lovely wedding ideas..... romantic florals, traditional and classic combinations plus contemporary, modern styling. 

We've chosen three of our hand painted wedding invite designs from our Ready to Print collection of luxury wedding stationery as inspiration for planning spring weddings.

Calligraphy & Flowers:

Watercolour wild flowers from a country meadow with the couple's names lettered in calligraphy feature on this beautifully illlustrated wedding invite from the Calligraphy & Flowers suite. We love pretty, wild meadow flowers. A giddy mix of tall grasses, willowy hollyhocks, chamomile, cornflowers and pink campion. This suite features these blooms in abundance. Continue the cottage garden or meadow flower theme with pretty floral details on the wedding cake and wild flower posies and dried flower floral crowns for brides, bridesmaids and flower girls.

Chelsea:

For a more contemporary feel, the hand painted Chelsea wedding invite features a loosely brushed floral design in watercolour paints. The invite is double sided with the pattern continuing on the reverse. Team with watercolour elements in the wedding cake and sweet treats. Pick out the spring / summery tones of yellow, pale turquoise and blue for perfectly mismatched bridesmaid dresses, modern, statement florals, and hand painted decorations.

Wedgewood Flowers:

Our classic Wedgewood Flowers wedding stationery features a simple hand painted floral wreath in yellow and elegant Wedgewood blue watercolours, with your wording in a delicate modern calligraphy style font. Using vintage Wedgewood fine bone china for table settings adds colour and old world charm. Breath a breath of fresh air in to the proceedings and dare to go yellow for your wedding attire. Such a pretty pairing of yellow and blue just yells out SPRING!

Whatever the theme of your wedding, we hope we have some stationery to compliment it. Take a look at our Ready to Print ranges and remember we offer free colour and font changes. All the designs are available as save the date cards as well as 'on the day' items including menus, info and map cards and order of service covers.
