Fun & Quirky
These cards are such a fun & quirky way of popping the question to your soon-to-be bridesmaids! I struggled to find any other similar cards with the scratch off reveal within the UK of such a great standard as well as great value for money. They were posted within a day and arrived very promptly which was definitely appreciated. I would certainly recommend to any brides looking a simple and effective way of asking.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I've worked on many destination weddings, the most memorable being for an Australian couple who married in Italy and had guests attending from literally all over the globe. The stationery design encompassed their love of travelling combined with the style of their venue and an art deco flair.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Bohemian, Vintage, Floral, Ecclectic, Retro

What about your business are you most proud of?

I've been running my business independently since it's launch in 2013, and love that I've staying in touch with many of my couples well beyond their wedding date. I've been nominated for Best Stationery Business in the Northwest County Brides Awards and have been featured in several prestigious Bridal publications.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Weddings are personal - it's all about reflecting your personality as a couple. Its very easy to get swayed by current trends, but I find couples are much less stressed when they keep things true to a style they are accustomed to.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Typically, orders begin with a one to one consultation where I get an opportunity to find out about the couple and their ideas for their wedding. From there, I can work out what stationery they might be looking for and can show th a selection of samples which might be of interest. Once an order begins, proofs are generated for approval and an order finally goes to print once the Couple are happy with their design.

What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?

I find the invitation is the most important - it tells your guests so much more than just the date and location - the quality, the design, the wording used all give your guests an idea of what to expect from your day and really, whether they should be excited to attend.

What is your best seller?

My modern botanical collection is a clear favourite amongst my couples, closely followed by my Scratch off Save the Date cards.
