We’ve been undergoing a revamp of the website section by section. We took a lot of feedback from customers and have tried to make changes to help shop.

Handmade Wedding Cards

And bit by bit we make those changes. The latest news is that our Personalised Wedding Card Section has been updated.

Personalised wedding cards available online

For most collections you can now fully personalise the fronts as well as inside of cards. Woohoo!

Making them suitable as a congratulations card to send to the couple, a romantic card to send to your Bride to be, a card to send to your future husband or a card to send to the parents as a thank you style card ‘To my Mum & Dad On my Wedding Day’. Any message that you feel can now be printed (word count appropriate)

This week it’s all about colour. Four or five blog posts of colour in fact.

Our obsession with colour is no secret. If you come into the studio, our shelves are filled with colour coordinated rainbow ribbons. Swarovski crystals shimmer on the walls from their pretty glass jars. And our wedding stationery ranges are framed in colour order.

Whilst classic & traditional colours have seen a re-emergence this season (following the Royal Wedding etc). A hot trend for weddings from last season, which looks as though it’s here to stay is COLOUR. Rainbows of colour – which makes the design industry very happy indeed. With so much colour on offer, why settle for just one colour when your planning your special day.

Today we have a beautiful image of a real wedding with rainbow Bridesmaid dresses by Laura Murray Photography via Before the Big Day  (which is a gorgeous UK wedding blog well worth bookmarking) and paired these images with suggestions of coordinating wedding invitations to suit, which are available in all colours of the rainbow:

Hot Trends: Ivory Invitations, black invitations, burgundy invitations, Hot Pink invitations, coral invitations, Gold invitations & yellow invites

Hot Trends: Sage Green Invitations, Aqua invitations, Cobalt blue invitations, lilac & Lavender invitations, Fuchsia invitations, Blush & baby pink invitations All the above designs are available from www.madewithlovedesigns.co.uk. We’ve put together some pretty rainbow mood boards filled with snippets of some of the prettiest rainbow wedding images on the web, to inspire you. We plan to show these on the blog throughout the week. Excited? We can’t wait to show these pretties.

We have put together a series of pages on the website to help clients decide on what wording to include in their wedding stationery.

Over the Summer we will be working on wording help pages for all stationery items and plan to post about each on the blog. Today’s post is about RSVP Cards and what to include with the wordings for your RSVP Cards.

We recommend that you include RSVP Cards with your invitations to allow guests to reply to you quickly. You may only need to include RSVP’s with your day/wedding invitations.

R.S.V.P “répondez s’il vous plaît”: meaning Please respond/answer/reply. Prompt your guests to respond quickly which in turn will help you in the planning of your big day. We recommend that you state an ‘RSVP by’ date, which we can print inside your invitations, of a minimum of 6 weeks (or earlier) before the wedding date for guests to reply by. Tip: give yourself lot’s of time for the RSVP date. Feedback from our Brides is that more time you give for guests to RSVP is better. Most of our clients state their ‘RSVP by’ date for 3 months before the big day.

A typical wording suggestion used in our RSVP’s is shown above. We have our standard template (above) where we print the Bride & Grooms name followed by an acceptance [we will be able to attend] or regrets [will not be able to attend] statement for guests to delete where appropriate. And a section for guests to write their names. You may also include extra information in your RSVP card wording such as: Dietary Requirements, Number of children and any other information that you feel you will need to know from your guests.

RSVP cards come with envelopes which are printed with an address to return to. Guests will simply put a stamp on the envelope & pop their completed RSVP in the post. And you will have happy & stress free planning!

In the art of postal correspondence and following wedding etiquette it is polite to address your RSVP envelopes (which we print free of charge for all RSVP’s) and it is polite to include a stamp on the RSVP envelope. RSVP’s can be posted as a standard letter size with a standard Stamp. For something special we can pre-stamp your RSVP envelopes with your own personalised stamps. Please state when ordering whether this is required.

RSVP Card Measurements will vary depending on the design you choose but will always be a simplified practical design to co-ordinate with your invitations.

On a budget? You may only need RSVP cards for your day invitations. Or you may not need RSVP’s at all if you include some RSVP information inside invitations with a telephone number / email address for guests to reply to. RSVP’s are useful if you prefer a written response to your wedding.

After ordering your RSVP Cards, please email your wording in a word document to orders@madewithlovedesigns.co.uk. We will work on a set of proofs for you to proof read your wording before signing off for us to print & commence design on your order.

Design for wedding stationery orders is around 6 weeks and your RSVP cards will be sent with the 1st phase of your order (with your wedding invitations). The 2nd phase of your order will include all other items that you have ordered which will be sent before the day including table plans, order of service etc. Wording for 2nd phase items will not be required until a later date.
