Small, intimate weddings are certainly going to be ‘on trend’ in the coming months. The Covid-19 pandemic has affected us all and the wedding sector in particular, has been hit hard. The main summer wedding months were wiped out and thousands of couples, venues and suppliers scrambled to reschedule weddings. It’s been a turbulent time although personally, I have been thankful I have been able to focus on my children more while they were unable to go to school.
Recent announcements have certainly cast doubt on weddings in to the new year and couples all over the country are again having to re-schedule their plans. However, I want to focus on the positives.
If you have decided to go ahead with your wedding with just 15 guests, then this could be your opportunity to create a completely different feel for your ‘big’ day. It’s not about thinking ‘big’, it’s about the intimacy of a small, personal wedding with the most important people around you. If you still have the same budget then maybe each guest has an extra special experience, as we know how much those costs can add up with big weddings! And if you have chosen to postpone to a later date then see it as having more time to plan that perfect day and the wait will definitely be worth it.
So on to the wedding stationery part. Most of my designs are professionally printed and unfortunately small print runs aren’t always that cost effective. This is why I have a minimum quantity order of 25, however I can do smaller orders so please don’t hesitate to contact me to see how I can help you.
I also offer my handmade options and these are be perfect for small intimate weddings. I print these and hand finish them at home and you can have wax seals, dyed silk ribbons, calligraphy etc. I also offer calligraphy which is a really nice way to add that personal touch to a place setting or small table plan. All handwritten and handmade with my calligraphy inks and a variety of paper/card options. I also make rustic, wooden signs and table plans.
