This week we worked on a press request for the fabulous Conde Nast Brides Magazine @Bridesmagazine for their upcoming pink story feature.

We love press days. Especially because this type of request is usually on a deadline and we just love the pressure! Especially when the No.1 Brides Magazine in the UK asks! And especially when it’s pink! We couldn’t say no really could we? …and why would we!

From concept to design, photography to packing here’s a typical press day in the studio:

The ribbons for the samples we shortlisted

Lovely Katie (above) working on the samples for Brides magazine

Above: the brief – Shades of pink Ombre style. Oooh yeh!

Pretty in pink (above) our final cut of ombre pink samples ready to shoot before packing for Brides magazine

Clare shooting the samples before they leave. Photography is a major part of any day – we probably photograph around 10 samples/pieces per day so we have a constant supply of fresh and inspiring images for Bridal magazines to use.

Fly my pretties fly. The finished samples on their way to Vogue House, London. And hopefully you will get to see some of the samples above in a future issue of Brides Magazine once the guys and gals have weaved their styling magic. Watch this space!

God we love our job.

Have an ace week y’all xox

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 www.madewithlovedesigns.co.uk

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 enquiries@madewithlovedesigns.co.uk . 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).

Come on England World cup card

Come on England World cup card

We wouldn’t describe ourselves as massive football fans here at Made With Love, I follow Manchester City and Clare is an Oldham Athletic fan, she can sing some of the terrace chants if the need arises. Even with our limited football knowledge we can’t fail to get excited by one thing……The World Cup. It’s impossible not to be swept along in all of the build up and I must confess, I can’t wait.

It’s always a great feeling when the sun is shining, people are drinking merrily in the sun and cheering as one when England score. We’re going to be in London for the Englands first game and so being in our nations capital for the countries opening game is filling us with a bit of national pride, so much so we’ve designed a special Come on England card. We’ve kept it simple and focused on the St Georges Flag, based on our hugely popular Union Jack cards in the God Save the Queen collection from our greetings card range. This card will be available as a limited edition greeting card and also as part of our Father’s day card collection exclusively for this World Cup only

Perfect for a World Cup themed party invitation, Football Fathers day card or England themed Birthday Card.

Some lovely news this week here at made with love. We’re used to dealing with wedding stationery and anniversary cards, so imagine our excitement when we received an order through for a personalised bedazzled card with the wording “Marry me” on the front – A marriage proposal in a card!

James's proposal card to Laura

pop the question with a unique personalised proposal card

We’re incurable romantics here at made with love and so we had to contact James (who ordered the card) for his story. James met Laura a year ago when he started working in the office where she worked. It was all a bit of a whirlwind and before long they had moved in together and things were going swimmingly.

James is planning on taking Laura out for a meal and when they return the room will be decorated with candles and fairy lights, taking centre stage will be a ring and a made with love bedazzled card asking Laura to marry him.

The following day James is whisking Laura on holiday for her birthday, could this story get any more romantic…..we hope so. We’ll update you all as soon as we know the outcome.
