The main rule here is to plan your party in advance, so your guests will be able to save the date for your celebration. We are keen on stylish paper invitations that you can hand over in person or put in the post. When we design these for our clients, we work with professional designers and illustrators, creating bespoke stationery to match the theme of the party. For our Italian wedding on Pantelleria
, an illustrator depicted the key sights and themes of the two-day celebration and for the V&A birthday party
, we asked a calligrapher to hand-write every invitation, to add a personal touch.
When choosing your invitation, bear in mind any other stationery you may need for the event, including place cards, seating plan, menus and Thank You cards. We start to design these at the same time to ensure that they all work together and enhance the event theme.
If you favour the eco-friendly approach, go with a digital invite. You can get just as creative, sending not only a picture, but an animation or a video, to your guests.
