Tips for Summer Weddings

Wedding Cake Shower Invitations Eat Drink and Be Married Napkins Celebration Photo Favor Tags Interlocking Script Monogram with Text Napkins Wedding Favors Classic Tangerine Return Address Labels

This season’s hot color palette of tangerine and hot pink will make any summer wedding sizzle!  And since 35 percent of weddings are planned for summer months, we thought we’d help inspire your planning with TheStationeryStudio.com’s large selection of personalized wedding products.

Think Pink: Take color up a notch. Bright hues are the hottest trend this year.  Just look at the fashion runways for inspirational color-blocking and incorporate those spectacular brights right into your summer wedding ideas.  If you choose just two coordinating colors (like we did above) and work off of a bridal shower invitation like our Wedding Cake Shower Invitation or a beautiful bright Save-the-Date Card that you like, you can’t go wrong.

Flower Power:  Take your bouquet to the next level – and imagine how the vibrant colors will look against a white dress. Think sweetpeas, tulips, orchids and  roses in magentas, corals, and golds (tied with a hot pink or orange sash).

Accents To Remember: Make sure that your Wedding Napkins add a pop of color to the table and cocktail setting.  Napkins can also serve a double-purpose for a reception. Summer is the perfect time to have some fun and create a laid-back mood for your guests.  You can get creative with napkins, by printing your own vows, sayings – or even with a fun summer drink recipe – which makes a nice wedding favor for guests to take home.

Gratitude with Attitude: Don’t forget to leave Favor Bags at the hotel for your out-of-town guests.  Since most people can get time off in the summer, you might be surprised by how many guests travel to your wedding.   Bags can be filled with water bottles, aspirin, sunscreen, snacks and souvenirs like seashells for a beach wedding or baseball hats with your favorite local sports team.  Ask the hotel desk manager to hand them to your guests as they check in.  Our Celebration Photo Tags will add that personal touch and thank your guests with style.

 

 

Romantic Script Napkins

24 May

Romantic Script NapkinWhen a simple accent was made extraordinary it became the talk of the party. We created amazing cocktail napkins and guest towels for a special relative’s wedding. These Romantic Script napkins and used the most lovely ornate font for the couple’s names and date.  The swirls and swashes were elaborately typeset and printed on an ivory napkin with a satin bronze imprint. Instantly our everyday 3-ply napkins blossomed into a work of art and we fell head over heels in love. The font said it all. Romantic simplicity.  Stylized elegance.  Basic yet extravagant.

This particular wedding was so lovely, in fact, that it was covered in the Chicago edition of The Knot, summer 2012. We have created an opportunity for you to enjoy the same lavish napkin and guest towel accents at your next event.  Whether the napkins are for a wedding, a bridal shower, an anniversary party or a birthday celebration, the sumptuously adorned imprint will be remembered.

To create one-of-a-kind imprints with this magnificent lettering style, our trained graphics team hand-sets the napkin’s imprint when an order is placed. Offering a wide selection of napkin and imprint colors to coordinate with your event’s color palate, the Romantic Script napkins will be the standout at any event.

Save your expensive china for inside and invest in colorful monogrammed melamine plates, which not only create a festive mood, but are less expensive over time than buying paper disposables.  These also make great parting gift for a birthday boy or girl, who can eat on the special plate and then save for a keepsake.
