I’ve been so excited about this one for a while! As you all know I love all things vintage from the 1940s to Victoriana … but I have another obsession, and this ones been with me for a while .. Alice in Wonderland. Ever since a child I have adored the books and especially the original illustrations, so was exceptionally excited by the resurgence in popularity for all things ‘Wonderland’.
I have wanted to do a range of wedding stationery based on this for a while … its something I have been working on for longer than anything else, wanting to get it exactly right. So now its here I’m over the moon!
The photos below show the range which I’ve styled to reflect the feel you can use for your weddings. I wanted the range to have a quirky vintage feel, with a grown up tea party style.
The Day Invitations can be bought as individual invitations or as a boxed set including a RSVP postcard and Information Card, and the evening invitations can be bought in the same way. I have created place card tags which are extremely versatile and can be tied around your napkins or favours, or as I’ve done here around small glass bottles filled with whatever you like! The same design could also be used to produce eat me / drink me labels .. very Wonderland!
To style your wedding with this range think quirky and fun. Mix the ‘obvious’ Wonderland colours of red, black, white and pale blue with browns and creams to stop it looking too child like. Pile your guest tables with lots of mismatched vintage china and cake stands for that eclectic tea party look. Use chess pieces for extra decoration or to hold napkins down and have your floral arrangements in old teapots, top hats or oversized cups for a really fun look. I love the idea of second hand books as favours for your guests … and it gives your wedding a real literary feel!
