Paperchase for Wedding Stationary – Guest Blog
We are very lucky to be able to welcome back our guest blogger, Charlie, who has previously blogged for us regarding the prefect wedding guest list and how to find the ideal bridesmaid dress. This time she is back and talking about wedding stationary, focussing on our customer Paperchase. To read more of Charlie’s ‘Dainty Bride’ blogs visit her page by clicking here.
Wedding stationary is such a key part to planning your wedding. It will inform all of your guests of key details of the day and also help to state a theme! Currently I haven’t told any of my guests anything about the theme that I shall be having at my own wedding, but I have been sending hints via my ‘Save the Dates’ and ‘Wedding Invites.’ Sneaky huh?!
I’ve been browsing in various shops and on websites for a while now and have found that Paperchase have a lot to offer! As it’s a high street brand it’s easy to call in and have a good hunt around, being able to see things in the flesh really helps you to get a better idea if the items are right for you. But failing that, if your pushed for time, everything is also available via their website, which makes it not only convenient but also a good research tool.
These ‘Woodland Laser Cut Invitations’ are by far my favourite. They’re so cute and rustic with just the right amount of detail. These invites would be perfect for those who want to create an outdoor “barn” style wedding, so hay bales at the ready! They’re also pretty reasonably priced, coming in at £10.00 for 10 invites.
The next invites I came across were a complete contrast in design to the ones I previously looked at, with a more modern and sophisticated feel. I love the different colours that go through the geometric pattern. They’re rather simple in design but seeing as they’re £3.25 for 10 in the sale, who cares?! Definitely one for us bargain brides.
Paperchase also stock place cards and I fell in love with these vintage style butterfly ones as soon as I saw them. Also stocking a variety pens, you can shop until your heart’s content to find the perfect colour to write on your guests names. (£2.00 for 10)
If you’re more of a creative person and fancy putting your own stamp on your place cards then Paperchase also offer a variety of plain card for you to get inventive with. You can either buy the card already cut to size or buy larger pieces of card for a more DIY job!
Finally, they also offer a variety of decorations which are so cute! You can buy some that are in keeping with the theme of your invites and place cards or you can go for a more miss matched feel a select something completely different.
This ‘Large Heart Glass Lantern Tea Light Holder’ could be perfect for adding to your top table, or hanging somewhere in you venue as decoration, maybe even line a path that your guest have to walk up to provide a truly romantic feel.
These ‘Glitter Champagne Bubble Bottles’ are amazing! They would be a great accessory to add to your tables for your guests to have a play with, especially as a way to entertain children that may be attending you wedding and who will without doubt get a bored during the speeches.
I think everyone loves a good wicker heart, and these ones would be perfect for dressing up the aisle chairs during your ceremony, giving your upcoming nuptials a more personal touch.
In conclusion, for wedding stationary there seems to be one choice, Paperchase. With such a great selection on offer and styles and themes to suit everyone, what are you waiting for? If you do find your perfect wedding stationary at Paperchase, let me know I’d love to see how you all get on.
