Marry Me In Tuscany Loves….Celebration Invitations

Here at Marry Me in Tuscany as destination wedding planners we very rarely get involved with helping couples choose their wedding stationery, but it’s an important part of the wedding, it sets the tone of how the event will be, colour schemes, and information about the wedding. With destination weddings it’s so important to send out save the dates, guests that you really want to be at your wedding need a little advance notice so they can plan their trip and also save the pennies for your special day. I’ve known Helen from Celebration Invitations for a while now and just love her work as I’m sure you will too, so with out further adieu I’ll hand you over to Helen so she can give you the low down on current trends and the vast choice available to you for your wedding stationery.

Hi I’m Helen from Celebration Invitations  I’m the owner of  Celebration Invitations based in the Yorkshire Dales in the North of England where we produce bespoke stationery for any celebration and specialize in Wedding Stationery.   This year we have had some great requests from couples the most recent being Natalie and Joe for 2015 requesting an explosion box wedding invitations.

You’ve heard it before many times I know, your wedding invitations will give your guests a glimpse of what they are to experience on your big day, I think Natalie and Joe’s guests must be really excited. An extremely bespoke invitation including, the invitation, a gift poem, and RSVP card and self addressed envelope with Vintage Roses, Hydrangea’s, and cotton lace. The colours to be expected on the day – Light grey and pink, this delicate soft colour combination works so well together.
It’s good to stay on trend but who wants their wedding to be just like the next persons, so here at Celebration Invitations we will discuss any options you would like us to follow.

Many couples including Brad and Angelina have got their kids involved as we saw with their children drawings on Angelina’s veil  it’s a great way to include the children and make them feel part of the celebrations and preparations for the big day, here’s one of this years invitations designed by the children in the family. Tom emailed their drawings over and we incorporated them into their stationery as he requested.

Tom and Tracey chose the popular brown kraft pocketfold invitation but please remember your postage costs which are now based not only on weight but also on the thickness of the contents. I wonder if this is why we are getting more requests for the folded card with maybe one information card to be included which could be printed on both sides like Jayne and Paul?

This Scripta Invitation is a timeless classic  which can be colour coordinated with your Wedding theme, Anniversary or Vow Renewal using some of our fabulous ribbons. It could be used for both Day and Evening guests with the appropriate wording used on the insert. It is available in Opal, Ice white and Quartz pearlescent card and a ribbon of choice.

Then I couldn’t resist and had a little play with it and added a pocket, and some embossing and of course a little bling!

However recently, we had  two couples who wanted something different and  although all their Wedding Day and ‘On the Day’ stationery co-ordinated they chose to use their wedding photos for their Thank you cards.

Real Wedding – Rebecca & Andy – Cortona

Marry Me In Tuscany was delighted to be the wedding planner for Rebecca and Andy who got married in beautiful Cortona in September 2012. Cortona was once an important Etruscan centre, Cortona and is perhaps now best known for the book and movie  “Under the Tuscan Sun”, which put it firmly on the list of top 10 places to visit in Tuscany.

It’s a quaint town with lots of churches, museums, bars and restaurants and is perched high on a hilltop and on a clear day you have the most amazing views of Lake Trasimeno and the valley below. There are lots of wonderful places close by to explore, Perugia, Arrezzo and the Val di Chiana, Pienza, Montepulciano and of course Siena isn’t too far away.

But back to the wedding, Rebecca and Andy choose a beautiful villa complex so that all their friends and family could stay together and enjoy a week’s holiday together. The morning of the wedding, I rolled up with the caterer to transform the poolside area into the dining area for the wedding breakfast and for the bar and dancing late into the night.

The wedding ceremony took place inside the medieval town hall which has imposing steps and a Romeo & Juliet balcony sadly not the one the two lovers used but couples can have their photos taken there after the wedding ceremony.

After the wedding they had their cocktail hour in the piazza so that they could go off with Andrea Pitti their wedding photographer and get some fabulous photos and their guests could soak up the atmosphere of this wonderful medieval city whilst being serenaded by Sara the harpist who had also played during the wedding ceremony.  Then it was time to head back to the villa to relax and enjoy the wonderful food prepared by the caterer.

Rebecca chose a gorgeous 50s style tea length dress and she looked absolutely stunning. As you can see from the photos below they had a wonderful fun time.
