luxury save the date cards

Wedding Stationery

Invites and save the date cards are the first item which sets the scene to your big day! If you want to make a lasting impression you don’t want to skimp in this area. These could potentially become long lasting memories for guests to keep so I would personally ensure they’re printed on good quality card/paper so they last over the years. There are some beautiful designs over on etsy, for summer my personal favourites are the chalkboard and floral designs. This navy and floral invite set contains everything you need; invite, RSVP and envelopes. It’s stylish and modern and the perfect addition to your wedding stationery.

If florals are not your thing, check out these kitsch wedding invites which are designed as tickets. These would definitely make memorable keepsakes for your guests and are a real wedding planning essential.

The Dress!

The high street and online retailers are really stepping up their game when it comes to bridal dresses and wedding planning. From ASOS to Topshop each store is aiming to make glamorous dresses available for every budget. One of my personal favourites is the Chi Chi London Premium Metallic Lace Midi prom dress which would look incredible as a vintage boho theme wedding dress. Don’t forget to check out Your Go-To Colour Palettes for 2018 too!

Bridal Party

Next to tick off the list is outfits for the bridal party! Purchasing bridesmaid dresses from online retailers has many advantages such as being able to purchase a wider range of sizes, colours and designs. Therefore you are more likely to find something that suits your budget and theme. Debenhams have a phenomenal up to 70% off sale with prices starting at just £39!
