After years of wanting to explore the wonderful world of weddings and stationery design, I’ve finally designed a range of customisable templates for all you Brides and Grooms out there!
Back in January, I wrote in my Business Goals for 2019 post about how I wanted to really jump into wedding stationery. I have designed a few sets of wedding stationery for friends before and I loved it! I really enjoy using my arty skills to bring joy and excitement and now that I’m a bride-to-be myself, I now have the point of view I needed to further understand what goes into planning a wedding, which has helped me a lot with starting this new branch in my business.
I’ve designed a range of custom invitations that can be edited to suit the couples needs for their big day, and I’ve just ordered paper samples from my printer using my favourite design, the Bright Botanical. These samples will be sent to couples who would like to see the quality of the paper stock that I use and to check out the size of the invitations.
I’ve also booked onto two wedding fairs to showcase my new business! One is at the Ageas Bowl on 12th May and the other is at Victoria House on 22nd September. I haven’t planned on how I’m going to set up my space yet, but after an inspiring weekend at Manchester’s Tattoo Tea Party convention, I saw the artists made scrapbooks with their portfolio and designs inside. I think I’ll make something similar to show the bespoke designs that I’ve worked on before.
My bespoke design service is all set up too, with a handy form that couples can fill in to receive a tailored quote for their dream illustrated stationery suite. It would also act as a design brief for me to work from:
I’ll report back when my paper samples have arrived and document my journey as a new wedding stationery designer! I’m so happy and excited and I think this is going to be a fun year!
