Our wedding stationery inspired this reader to create her own handmade invitations

Charlie / 27 January 2012

brown craft wedding stationery

One of my lovely readers, Eulyn, got in touch to share her wedding invitations with me after being inspired by the wedding stationery we made for our wedding.  I can’t tell you how lovely it is to get emails and pictures like this, knowing that something you did inspired someone else – and a photo of another couples hard work.

If you’ve been inspired by the ‘save the dates’ or stationery that we created for our wedding, do send me an email – I’d love to hear from you and attach a couple of pictures so I can see (and maybe even share on the blog) what you’ve created – it would make my day.  It can get very lonely blogging away, sharing ideas and inspiration, so hearing that you were inspired by something you found here really makes me happy.

Get in touch with my by emailing charlie@thenaturalweddingcompany.co.uk.

rachel on 3. January, 2013

hi there – I LOVE this! Am in the middle of massive wedding stationery confusion and I’d love to find out how to make something similar: we have yet to find a design out there that is perfect for us, so maybe making our own is the answer! thank you! x

Charlie

CharlieB on 3. January, 2013

Hi Rachel, so pleased you love my handmade wedding stationery – you can find the first part of my ‘how to’ guide on how I made it here http://thenaturalweddingcompany.co.uk/blog/2011/06/do-it-yourself-rustic-handmade-wedding-stationery-part-1/. The other parts of my guide aren’t currently online but if you’re interested to read them please just email me x

SarahB on 16. January, 2013

These invites are so beautiful and individual, I love the quirky artwork!
I’m halfway through making something similar for our wedding,and would be very very grateful if you could e-mail me parts 2 – 4. If we can acheive something half as lovely as these and the original designs we will be very happy.

Charlie

CharlieB on 17. January, 2013

Hi SarahB, it’s lovely to hear you’re making something similar for your own wedding invitations. I will email you the other ‘how to’ parts for how I made our invitations xXx

LorraineP on 6. February, 2013

Wow these invitations are so lovely. The creative memory banks were running dangerously low but now I’m feeling inspired again! I particularly love the tree design on Eulyn’s invitations and the font on the RSVP tags. I have been looking all over for a similar font without any joy so far. Is there any chance at all that you might be able to help? Thanks so much, and so glad I stumbled across your page. Well done you on your amazing invitations!

Charlie

CharlieB on 7. February, 2013

Hi LorraineP thanks for your lovely comment and delighted to hear you’ve been inspired. I don’t think the writing on the luggage tags is a font, I think they are handwritten, which doesn’t help you much. Have you had a look on websites like http://www.dafont.com for a handwriting style font you like? They have a great selection and they are available to download for free. Best wishes, Charlie xXx

SarahP on 11. February, 2013

Hi Charlie – love love love your invites, they’re so unique. I’ve been looking all over for help with making my own. Please can you email me parts 2-4 so I can have a go? Thanks!

Charlie

CharlieB on 12. February, 2013

Hi SarahP thanks for your message about my invites, of course I’ll email you the additional ‘how to’ guides xXx

Leah on 25. June, 2014

Hi,could you e-mail me parts 2 – 4 too please. I love the tree and am intrigued if these were illustrations or clip arts? Thanks

Charlie

CharlieB on 8. July, 2014

Hi Leah, I’ll email about my stationery how to, but with regards to the tree, I believe it was a hand-drawn illustration by Eulyn the bride :)

Debbie on 26. March, 2015

Hi Charlie, I would so appreciate any information you have from the gal who made these lovely invitations :) a friend of mine is getting married and really likes this design. I will hopefully be helping her to create these invitations…thanks so much for sharing!!

Charlie

CharlieB on 31. March, 2015

Hi Debbie, unfortunately all the information I have is in this blog post – have you checked out my original blog post on my wedding stationery (which inspired this design?) as there is lots more info on how I made them http://thenaturalweddingcompany.co.uk/blog/2011/06/do-it-yourself-rustic-handmade-wedding-stationery-part-1/

KaitlinZ on 15. July, 2015

Hello! How did you get the tree that is on the invitation above for Mark and Euylne? I love it and would love to use it on my invitations.
Please let me know

Charlie

CharlieB on 26. July, 2015

Hi KaitlinZ, Eulyn actually drew the tree herself and scanned it in to use on her invitations. Sorry I can’t help more! Charlie x

Marcia on 17. January, 2016

Hi, I’ve just found your blog & absolutely loving it. Would you possibly send me the other parts to how you made your invites? I’m not very creative but if successful I’ll send you photos
