As a kick off to the New Year I thought I’d take a look back at what inspired my stationery in 2010 and what to expect from Wedding Stationery in 2011!

Brides … and grooms let’s not forget! … are becoming more and more inspired by a unique and handmade wedding stationery product that will make their wedding stand out from the crowd.

Here at Knots & Kisses Wedding Stationery we rise to that challenge!

All our stationery is 100% handmade to suit the couple’s requirements. We will quite happily work from swatches of material or any other inspiration to create a bespoke invitation. We pride ourselves on a very personal service. The last thing you want when planning a wedding is not to be able to pick up the phone and have a chat about any changes you may require. Please don’t forget to look at our website

The inspirations for our ‘Off the Peg’ ranges in 2010 had a genuine vintage feel. ‘A Country Garden Party’, which can be seen in our Ditsy Print and Country Garden ranges, evokes the feeling of 1940’s tea parties. Pretty floral china, old glassware and beautiful rose prints are all elements of this. We even made floral bunting to match a bride’s wedding stationery to bring the theme together. I think this theme is going to continue to be popular in 2011, especially with summer weddings.

Our other main inspiration was ‘Old School Hollywood Glamour’. Think satin dresses, diamante jewellery and a black and cream theme from old photos. Check out our Vintage Cameo and Bejewelled invitations which match this theme perfectly. Again I think this trend will continue as the vintage look is still very popular, and this look is great for the bride that loves vintage but not florals!

Bejewelled and Vintage Cameo ranges and table plan on

For 2011 we see new inspirations coming from Alice in Wonderland and English Eccentrics .. taking the garden party look to a new and quirky level. We see lots of fun floral arrangements in teapots and old bottles, and beautiful mixes of tweed and lace. Pocket watches and old telephones used in decor could be fun and don’t forget your wellies for that perfect festival wedding in a field!

You’ll have to wait a bit longer for our new ‘Wonderland’ range but our new English Eccentrics range will be launched later this week!
