Rustic eco-chic nautical ‘tying the knot’ save the dates and invitations with hessian, lace and twine
Charlie / 6 August 2015
Some of my favourite emails are from brides/couples who have been inspired by the stationery I made for my own wedding – both our save the dates and our invitations. Rachel was one of those brides who got in touch to share photos of what they created and I particularly loved hers because her and her husband-to-be Lee are sailors – so the ‘tying the knot’ version of our save the dates couldn’t be more appropriate.
It is so exciting to hear that couples all over the world have been inspired by the design I created for our save the dates, and it’s pretty satisfying when emails pop into my inbox with photos attached of what everybody’s been busy creating.
Rachel asked her friend and designer Anne Trencher to design her a few graphics for her wedding stationery, and to choose fonts for them to use – and don’t they look beautiful!
I am certain that these designs will become much loved by future couples visiting my blog, which is why I’m featuring them. This combination of brown craft card and lace/hessian/twine is so popular and it’s not hard to see why.
Check out the little card in the middle of the pictures below – Rachel and Lee are heading off after their wedding in their sailboat for the adventure of a lifetime! I have got my fingers-crossed that Rachel might stay in touch to keep us updated with what they get up to.
If you love these ideas, you can find loads more in this bespoke Facebook album I created to showcase all of the designs I’ve been sent over the years. I’ve also featured a few other readers versions on the blog:
