“Gatsby, What Gatsby?”

1920s wedding glam inspiration board- B Studio Wedding Invitations

Thanks to the recent release of Baz Luhrmann’s film “The Great Gatsby”, all things “1920’s” and “Gatsby-esque” are now back in vogue. This beautiful bygone era known as “the roaring ’20s” was a time where people embraced grandeur and glamour and partied it up without a care in the world- the perfect inspiration for a decadent fun-filled wedding, don’t you think?

She sells…”Starfish” by the seashore!

By the Seashore Invitation2

It’s currently Winter for all of us down in the Southern Hemisphere and we’ve certainly suffered some pretty miserable weather of late. I (like many) am longing for a bit of fun in the sun right now and am counting down the days until Summer is with us again.

In the meantime, while I’ve been dreaming away about sipping cocktails on a beautiful island resort, I’ve also been working on a couple of new designs inspired by my summertime daydreams. “By the Seashore” (as seen above) is my latest release and would be ideal for a laid back, easy breezy beach/seaside wedding! Do you like what you see?

Gatsby Glamour- inspired by the glamour and sophistication of the roaring ’20s!

French Provincial wedding theme

French Provincial wedding- B Studio Wedding Invitations- with logo

Our latest invitation design was inspired by the beautiful French countryside. When we think of a French provincial wedding theme, we think of elements which are warm and rustic yet still sophisticated and chic with elegant lace draping, ornate chandeliers and many simplistic little details. Tout simplement magnifique!

What’s HOT right now in the wonderful world of stationery!

2013 is set to be another GIGANTIC year in both the wedding and the stationery industry- I can just feel it! It’s only the 14th day of the year and already we have been inundated with enquiries and orders, so I have a feeling this year is going to be one super busy exciting year!

In term of wedding stationery trends, I’m predicting that the following 5 will be BIG this year:

 

Love Birds Rustic Invitation Collage

NEW DESIGN COMING SOON: ‘Love birds’ Collection by B Studio Wedding Invitations

 

– Rustic/Country theme: This theme has been vastly growing in popularity in recent years, and I expect that it will only continue to grow this year, as brides increasingly look for ways to incorporate more natural and earthy elements into their wedding. Check out our blog post last year on Rustic/Country Invitations” for some inspiration boards as well as to find out more about this trend.

– Recycled Paper goods: As mentioned above, modern couples are increasingly going “green” and turning to sustainable earth-friendly options to incorporate into their weddings. Sending invitations made out of recycled card stock/paper conveys a message to your guests that you care enough to send out a formal paper invitation, yet want to do so in a eco-friendly manner. With the rise in popularity of rustic/vintage/eco weddings, sending invites made out of recycled materials fits right in with the theme, so it’s a win-win situation!

– Birds: Birds are going to be big this year, and will feature throughout weddings in a multitude of ways. You will be seeing a lot more stationery collections featuring bird patterns and themes as well as invitations with cute little love birds on them (speaking of which, we have just designed one recently which will be available on the website soon. See pic above). You are also likely to see birds topping cakes, hanging from ceilings, adorning reception tables in cute little birds nests and more. A bird theme fits in well with a number of common wedding themes ( eg. garden, outdoors, woodsy weddings) so I’m not one bit surprised about this emerging trend.

– Doilies: Pretty lacey doilies are looking hot and we are going to see a lot more of these gorgeous things popping up everywhere! Doilies can be used on invitations, as part of wedding decorations, on cakes, dresses & many more! Whether paper or crotchet, doilies look gorgeous when teamed with a rustic or vintage theme as well as a feminine theme.

– Lace: Lace has always been on the wedding scene and will still remain popular, due to its timelessness. Personally I love lace, so you’ll hear no complaints here!

 

So these are just a few of the trends to watch out for this year! What do you think of these trends and will you be incorporating any of these into your wedding or event?

 

NEW Rustic/ Country Invitations have arrived!

If you’re looking to create a rustic country-themed wedding filled with natural eco-friendly details and classic country charm, you can’t go wrong with our new range of rustic themed wedding invitations!

A rustic theme would be ideal for those holding their wedding at a vineyard, winery, country estate or barn/farmhouse. Rustic weddings are increasing in popularity these days, due to the rise in couples seeking to create a beautiful and natural environment for their big day!

Have a look at the 2 rustic inspired inspiration boards we created featuring our new rustic invitations. We hope they inspire your next event!

P.S. If you’re not sure what a rustic wedding is, think: countryside charm, barns, wooden signs, burlap (also known as jute or hessian), mason jars and homemade jams and goodies to name just a few! For an elegant spin to the rustic theme, consider having a rustic chic, rustic romantic or rustic mixed with vintage wedding theme!

Support Handmade

NEW handmade invitation- "Charmed by Love"

NEW handmade invitation “Charmed by Love”

Personally, I am a lover of handmade goods. Be it handmade jewellery, decorations, invitations…you name it. I have always appreciated and admired the time, effort and craftsmanship behind a well-made handmade item. Each piece is unique and special and knowing that my item wasn’t a mass-produced product churned out from a factory makes me cherish it that little bit more.

I know how much time and effort I put into creating each and every invitation for my customers and I do often try to picture the look on their faces when they receive their packages from me, and have a look at their invitation for the first time. I would imagine that it would be a look of delight and awe, and this is the response I strive to achieve with each and every piece of mine. This is another reason why I love handmade goods… I believe they can bring out feelings and emotions that oftentimes plain mass-produced products can’t.

Last month, I signed a pledge to support the handmade goods industry, vouching to buy handmade goods for myself and others where possible. Here is my plaque below:

I love love LOVE these 2 new invitation collections!

I’ve had so much fun designing these 2 new invitation designs this week!

Whenever I create a new design, it usually starts with an interesting embellishment or piece of paper which has caught my eye…that’s when I start getting inspired and then begin matching them up with different coloured backgrounds and prints, and seeing what works and what doesn’t. There have been so many times where I’ve surprised myself with what actually works! Sometimes its not what I had envisaged at all, and the final result is even better than I could have imagined!

Hope you enjoy these latest two designs!

{2013 edit: These collections are available by special request. Please contact us for details}

All our other invitation designs have been square in shape, and now that we’ve seen how great DL invitations can look, expect to see more of them in future! Having said that, its been an incredibly busy and furiously fun month and what we can tell you is- expect a lot MORE from us in the next month as we are working on many more fantastic invitation designs at the moment! Can’t wait to show you!

Till next month…stay happy and inspired! xxoo
