Seasonal Wedding Flowers

Choosing wedding flowers that work with your stye and colour palette is essential to creating the perfect ambience for your special day.

With so many flowers available, a great way to narrow down your options, keep costs to a minimum and easily complement the time of year your wedding is taking place is to choose seasonal flowers.

Although your florist will be able to assist in showing you seasonal flowers, a good tip to help you prepare before your meeting is to gather inspiration on bouquets, centrepieces, buttonholes plus the colours of your wedding if this is already decided. This will really help them better understand your style and make the process a lot easier for you.

If you are unsure which flowers are in season around the time of your wedding, below we have picked out a few of our favourites which we hope you like too!

Alongside each season, we have selected PaperLove inc. wedding stationery suites to complement. Browse our full collections at:

6 Tips for Wedding Stationery

So you have your date, venue and guest list defined… it’s time to start thinking about wedding stationery!

Here at PaperLove inc. we understand wedding stationery is one of the most essential and much anticipated aspects to any wedding. It can be a daunting task for some couples though with so many ideas available and a vast range of pricing options. Below are a few of our wedding stationery tips to help you along the way…

Wedding Stationery Budget

It is always best practice to set out your budget from the outset with wedding stationery planning. The good news is that whether you are looking for luxury wedding invitations or a DIY style, you will usually always have the opportunity to customise and find something you love in your budget.

Guest List Clarity

Sometimes it’s not possible to invite children to a wedding and it’s really important to let families know. To avoid any misunderstanding and disappointment the perfect way to make it clear who is invited is personalised wedding invitations. As a small addition to your guest information cards, you could also include a personal note…

‘Unfortunately, as much as we’d love to invite all of our friends’ children, we can only accommodate a few close family children. We hope that you will understand this decision and we very much hope you will still be able to join us on our special day.’

Wedding Stationery Style

Wedding stationery is a wonderful way to set the style of your day. Think about your venue, decor or theme and look for personalised wedding invitations, save the date and thank you cards to complement.

Below are some of our PaperLove inc. wedding stationery suite favourites showcasing different styles…

wedding stationery, luxury wedding invitations, postcard

Inspired by a postcard ‘Love Note’ is sentimental and chic.

wedding stationery, luxury wedding invitations, rose garden

‘Rose Garden’ is vivid and elegant.

wedding stationery, luxury wedding invitations, vintage cinema ticket

‘Showcase’ evokes a sense of occasion reminiscent of the Golden Age of Cinema.

Colours

Once you have a clear idea of wedding stationery style, do you have a colour palette in mind or are your personalised wedding invitations and styling following the seasonal colours that your date falls in? A really simple, fun and effective way to define colours you like is to create a mood board. You’ll also be able to share this with your florist and venue to establish the same style across your entire day.wedding mood board, wedding inspiration, wedding colours

Wedding Invitation Wording

Nowadays many couples are opting for a more modern approach using casual wedding invitation wording but still, there are lots of variations to choose from. Again, think about the style of your wedding… is it modern, relaxed, traditional, formal or themed? Below are some appropriate ideas for wedding invitation wording.

Modern, Relaxed…

Together with their families

Emily & Joshua

Modern, Formal…

The pleasure of your company is requested to celebrate the marriage of

‘Cupids Arrow’ Red Velvet Cupcakes!

‘hand-finished wedding stationery (& CUPCAKES) with a touch of love’

We had the Bristol Zoo Gardens summer wedding fayre last weekend showcasing our wedding stationery collections inclusive of luxury wedding invitations, save the dates and thank you cards.

Fleur at PaperLove inc. lovingly made some delicious cupcakes for our visitors to enjoy with a glass of fizz! We received so many compliments (they really were that amazing!) I thought we must share the recipe…

INGREDIENTS

60g unsalted butter, room temperature

150g caster sugar

1 egg

120ml buttermilk (I used juice of 1 lemon and approx 90ml of whole milk to make up to the 120ml)

180g plain flour, sifted

15g cocoa powder

1 x tube of red food colouring gel

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp white or red vinegar

For the icing…

300g icing sugar, sifted

150g unsalted butter, room temperature

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tbsp milk

IMG_1911

METHOD

1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/325°F/gas mark 3.

2. To make the cake mixture, put the 60g of butter and 150g of sugar into an electric mixer and beat on a medium to high speed until light and fluffy (You can do it by hand too but they cakes seem to turn out much better with an electric mixer or electric whisk). I leave it mixing for a few minutes! Using a high speed, slowly add the egg and beat until everything is well incorporated.

IMG_1910

3. Add the cocoa powder, red food colouring gel and vanilla extract to the mixture and mix until evenly combined and coloured.

IMG_1915

4. Slowly pour in half of the buttermilk and beat until well mixed, then add half the flour and beat until everything is well incorporated. Repeat this process until all the buttermilk and flour have been added. Beat until you have a smooth, even mixture. Turn the mixer down to a low speed and add the bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. Beat until well mixed.

IMG_1927

5. Spoon the mixture into the greased cupcake tin (or paper cases if using) until two-thirds full and bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the sponge bounces back when touched. A skewer inserted in the centre should come out clean. Leave the cupcakes to cool slightly in the tray before turning out onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

 

6. To make the buttercream, beat the icing sugar and butter on a medium to slow speed until the mixture comes together and is well mixed. Add the vanilla extract and the milk (depending on the consistency of your buttercream you can add more or less of the milk as you need), and beat until well incorporated. Turn the mixer up to a medium to high speed and continue beating for a few minutes until the buttercream is light and fluffy. Once your cakes are completely cool, top your lovely cupcakes with the buttercream!

Finally decorate and serve…

Botanical Garden Wedding Ideas

Botanical Gardens are blooming and PaperLove inc. are lucky enough to have one on our doorstep! You can’t help but feel relaxed amongst the beauty and serenity of the gardens especially on a summers day.

You can gain wonderful inspiration from Britains beautiful gardens for your venue, flowers and wedding stationery. Below are some handpicked ideas from PaperLove inc.

A white dress against colourful backdrops and the powerful glasshouse light creates a romantic feel.

Fresh eucalyptus is popular greenery for weddings and adds great volume and tone. I love the softness and depth colour seen here growing in our local botanical garden. Below is a beautiful example of how to incorporate eucalyptus into your wedding bouquet.

For our PaperLove inc. ‘Rose Garden’ wedding stationery collection the design takes inspiration from an English country garden. Available in four beautiful colour palettes, these luxury wedding invitations, save the date and thank you cards will be sure to add a touch of elegance to your wedding.

Traditional wooden signs are a great addition to a botanical garden style wedding. These are widely available for hire nowadays or why not make your own!

I love the idea of making hessian bags to hold plants completed with a rustic twine bow. These could be a cost effective way to add colour by placing along a garden path or aisle. They will also make wonderful gifts for your loved ones to take away as a memento at the end of the day.

Walking along this path made me think how magical and fairytale like it would be as an entrance to meet your groom and guests…

Subtle floral details can be really effective and simple.

Wedding Stationery Typography

As a designer of wedding stationery, it is important to consider every detail ensuring layout is well balanced with complementary typefaces. Bringing all the design elements together creates truly stylish and eye-catching personalised wedding invitations.

The typeface will play a decisive role in why you are drawn to that particular design and alongside the wedding invitation wording, the style of your wedding will be captured. Here at PaperLove inc. we have thought very carefully about the fonts selected as we understand how it instantly completes each design and will captivate the reader.

Our collections of luxury wedding invitations, save the date and thank you cards are also thoughtfully named and offered in four striking colour palettes which illustrate each design perfectly.
