I (clare) treated myself to this little beauty the other week. Fed up with carting my macbook around in a naff laptop bag. Turning up to meetings/client consultations with my chic little case has never felt better. Isn’t she pretty?

Luxurious invitationsWe absolutely adore Opulence, it’s our most popular range by far and magazines can’t get enough of it. It was an easy decision to feature this luxury range as the first of our monthly ‘In the Spotlight’ wedding stationery blog posts.available as evening invitations or day invitations

In a series of spotlight posts we’re going to focus on one design each month to give prospective clients a close up & detailed view of the collection, including close up images, information on the design and just what makes the Opulence wedding collection so special.

We have sourced the globe for the finest lace and the silkiest satin to use in our luxury wedding range. Naturally, the crystal dobbers used on the design are very heavy (an indication of their quality) you can tell from just holding the invitation that this design really is the business. The crystal brooches are very sparkly and have the ‘wow factor’ which is the first thing that your guests will get from these invitations, followed by how beautiful and incredibly well made they are. This is becoming a regular in the feedback that we receive from our Brides after their big day and often from their guests who feel that they must contact us to let us know that they have received an invitation and want to tell us how gorgeous they are! It takes a lot for someone to do this which shows how irresistable this design is. The crystal brooch forms the central feature in this luxury design. ivory wedding stationery in classic wedding colours

For Brides/Grooms who love the vintage lace style but not wanting something so bling, we have a sister collection called ‘Vintage Lace’ luxury lace wedding invitations (click on the name to view) which features all the key materials for a vintage and lace wedding theme but without the luxury crystal and without the luxury price tag. Vintage Lace invites start from £4.35 (we will spotlight on this collection another time – Vintage Lace image shown below far right image next to the Opulence invitation).Luxury ivory lace vintage style wedding invitations from

Opulence Invites feature our specially imported vintage lace. The lace has a fine weave and floral design, carefully finished on both edges with a deckle finish. We can design your invitations with either ivory lace, black lace or white lace to reflect your wedding theme.

When it comes to the ribbons used on our ribbon luxury invitations, we use the finest double-faced satin ribbon in the world which is spun in 100’s of colours. These ribbons are super silky and we are able to supply reels of ribbon in your matching colours if you want to carry on the theme of your wedding stationery for your venue decoration, flowers etc.

Our ribbons are supplied by the world’s leading ribbon manufacturer, who we chose because quite simply their ribbons are the silkiest, most rich in colour and exquisitely made satins that we have found. And we’re in good company, many exclusive fashion boutiques, designer fashion houses including Chanel & D&G also choose these ribbons. The chances are if you have bought something from one of the exclusive shops on Bond Street, London, you will have come across the  ribbons in their products and exquisite packing.

The Opulence luxury wedding invitations collection is set on thick quality board (300gsm) with a pearl finish, accompanied by matching insert paper available in ivory or white (as well as bespoke colours on request).

We use special thermal printers with solid wax ink to print your invitations. This has it’s advantages as the finish of the print is superior to laser or inkjet printing. This gives a waterproof finish (helpful for any tears from guests when they open your beautiful invite and any accidents which may occur when it’s on display in your guests home!) as well as a slightly raised print for maximum clarity to give crisp printed text.  Invitations are printed with your personal details (which does not cost any extra). We can personalise your invitations with the Bride & Grooms names and wedding date on the front of your invitations and all the necessary details printed inside. If you’re stuck for what to include in your wording we have some invitation wording templates on our website which can help.

Invitations can be supplied with matching pearlescent envelopes (slightly larger that the invite to accommodate the 3d nature). If you plan to post your wedding invitations to guests, we strongly recommend that you opt for the boxed invitation. We feel that this design is too beautiful to risk sending in a paper envelope. Though, many clients have sent their invitations out in envelopes and have been very happy to do so. We supply boxes for only 50p each to allow you to not have to compromise on the design. Boxed invites and enveloped invites can be posted as Large Letter Size (Royal Mail).

When we receive your paid order, please email your wording to be printed. We will start work on a proof for you to be able to see how your wording will look. Once you are happy and sign off your proofs, your order will go to print & design. We typically need 4-6 weeks for the design of orders although we may be able to reduce these lead times a little bit for urgent orders. Please enquire before placing your order to . Priority slots are available which will guarantee your order for 14 working days costing £60. Please add this priority service to your shopping basket to ensure the speedy design slot is added to your order.

We have many colours available to design the perfect luxury invitation for your special day and recommend that you order a sample invitation in your colours. We will send free ribbon swatches with your sample, which are carefully chosen by our designers to reflect your colour scheme for you to compare (you may find something different in these swatches which you love or the swatches will re-confirm to you that you have made the right choice).

Opulence Vintage Lace Wedding Invitations in Vogue Magazine May 2011It’s been a whirlwind week at Made With Love. It’s the first week in our new studio and we’re just about settling in.

And and and… Our luxury lace & diamonds Opulence Wedding Invitations have been listed in British Vogue Magazine’s May 2011 issue Royal Wedding Special: ‘Love is in the Heir… Vogue’s guide to a wedding fit for a princess’. Our Union Jack Queen Anne Wedding throne chair and footstool got a mention too. Horray!

Our Invitations as seen in VogueIt’s still amazing for us when we see our work in any magazine. But Oh! to be in Vogue… this one definitely gave us chufty badges!

Here it is:

Close Up:

It reads: ‘Made With Love offer fabulous wedding stationery, personalised greetings cards and have now expanded into the world of interior fashion. Pictured is their best selling and most luxurious wedding stationery design “Opulence” . Featuring a vintage crystal cluster, sumptuous satins and imported lace. Popular with celebrity clients, film directors, and Brides wanting a little luxury.’

How exciting!

We don’t know why we hadn’t thought of this before but sometimes even the most obvious of things get missed in all the fuss. We launched the fabulous Opulence Collection earlier this Summer and hadn’t quite anticipated just how popular it was going to be. So much so that we were literally inundated with sample requests, which led to orders and ultimately meant that we couldn’t spend any time adding the full range to the page. We have just finished adding most items from the range to the Opulence wedding stationery page. Here’s a peak of some items:

But the part we’re really excited about is our idea to make the vintage style crystal clusters that we use on the Opulence designs into oh so fabulous ladies brooches. What a fab idea for a luxury wedding favour for the ladies and you could still opt for edible treats for the guys.

The brooches should retail for £9.95 (we saw them for this price in a Chester boutique) but we want to make this luxury range accessible for all and as a favour our ladies brooches can be bought for just £2.90 per brooch (minimum order of 20 pieces).

Buy the brooches on their own for £2.90 each or we can add a brooch as a favour to fill a beautiful favour box, which will be filled with tissue inside too & tied with a ribbon knot for £5.00 . Or the same style box filled with sweets instead of the brooch £3.00

or the same boxes tied with a ribbon bow for £5.50 (price includes ladies brooch favour) or this style box filled with sweets £3.50

or go all out for our truly divine Opulence wedding favours designed with lace, satin and a cluster for £7.90 or this style box filled with sweets £5.90

For something with the wow factor, a little out of the ordinary that the ladies can keep as a gift long after the sweeties have been gobbled up!

(New to the website: Colour themes – Coral peach and Blush wedding invitations)

We’ve been working on a vintage peach & crystal sample invitation for a client who is having a muted peaches & cream wedding colour theme. We mocked up the design this morning and shot it in the afternoon sun. The result is quite simply breathtaking… don’t you think?

A vintage style lace invitation featuring a vintage crystal cluster

A very pretty vintage design from the Opulence Wedding Stationery Collection featuring soft peach pearlescent board (perfectly named ‘Vintage Peach’), with ivory lace and ivory satin ribbon and a vintage diamond cluster to set the design off perfectly.

No sooner had we shot the image, had a journalist from a UK Wedding magazine contacted us to use the invitation in their forthcoming vintage fairytale wedding piece. The issue will be out in August 2010.

We loved the design so much (the peach / nude colour scheme is what I think I would probably have for my wedding) so  have spent a little bit of time putting together a peach inspired wedding mood board of lovely vintage and peach wedding ideas. I really hope you like it…

Available in peach favour boxes with cream ribbon or ivory favour boxes with peach /coral or lace ribbon. £4.00 from us (Made With Love)

I do not know for the life of me where I got the dress images from as they were saved on my hard drive from yonks back. Please get in touch so I can credit you for the lovely images.

I have more of these peachy pretties for adding to the blog next week…

Have a peachy weekend!
