Bespoke Wedding Invitations & Stationery Design Packages

Gosh can't believe it's Monday already! Such a packed weekend!
On Saturday I spent the day visiting a seamstress with one of my best friends to get my bridesmaid's dress altered for her wedding next March and then visiting one very excited little bridesmaid to try on her dress!
Sunday I spent meeting lots of lovely Brides & Grooms and fantastic wedding industry peeps at the Pentillie Castle Wedding Fair near Plymouth with the fantastic Blue Fizz Events. I'll be posting lots more photos of the day on Wednesday.

Whilst at the fair lots of couples asked about my bespoke design service and so today I wanted to share with you some of the bespoke work I've done for clients in the past.

At Knots & Kisses I love creating a bespoke look unique to your big day. Give me an idea of colours, the look or even a picture that is inspiring your wedding and I can help you pull it all together.

There are 3 different pricing options if you wish to take advantage of my bespoke design service ...

£25.00 - This fee covers basic changes to the design and colour of an existing range to better suit your wedding. Many of the ranges can have card colours changed or elements of the design changed quite easily so please don’t hesitate to ask.

£75.00 - This package is for a fully bespoke design to include : - A full phone consultation - one physical sample - two further design amendments in PDF format via email

£125.00 - This package is for a fully bespoke design to include : - A full bespoke consultation either by phone or in person at Knots & Kisses in Okehampton, Devon. - two physical samples of any design; so you can see any design amendments or changes in person before confirming - four further design amendments in PDF format via email; allowing for final tweaks and changes before going to print - complimentary pre-addressed guest labels for all envelopes… so no need to order these as an extra or write all the envelopes yourself.

Individual prices for each bespoke item of stationery will depend on the design and will be advised during the consultation process.

I'm delighted to say that you can now buy 2 new designs in my Christmas Card packs range which are available from this week from my Etsy shop

Although complimenting the existing Christmas Card Pack designs, so you could quite easily mix and match, this years two new designs definitely have a Rustic Christmas feel.

The first is a twist on my very popular Stag print cards with a slightly humorous feel and rustic print.

The second design echoes my Vintage Christmas wedding stationery range with a subtle print of holly and a rustic feel.

Of course the three existing designs are also still available to buy which include a traditional Christmas feel, a gorgeous rocking horse and a floral design ...

All Christmas Card packs come in packs of 5 with matching envelopes.

Botanical Wedding Reception Stationery & Room Hangers

Gosh another week rolls by! I still can't believe its October but it does finally feel like autumn .. which, although I love summer, does make me happy as I also love snuggling up in front of the fire and wearing lots of cosy layers! It also means I spent some of the weekend making my Christmas Cakes for this year and making big pots of stew to freeze.

Anyway .. enough about me! ... Today I wanted to quickly share with you the lovely reception stationery I made for Abi and Craig who got married last weekend in Devon.
Abi & Craig's bespoke design was the original inspiration behind my new 'Victorian Garden' range of wedding stationery so it was lovely to work with them again on their reception stationery.
As well as some standard items ... placecard tags and order of service .. they also wanted some bespoke room hangers making up in the same style to put on the doors of all the rooms in their venue for the guests who were staying with them.
I always love making bespoke extras for people so was happy to oblige :)

They also had a matching table plan which I rearranged into a landscape format to suit their room layout ...

I loved creating their stationery and I hope Abi & Craig, that you had a wonderful day on Saturday!

New 2015 Collection Wedding Dresses from So Sassi

I've got some gorgeous new wedding dresses to share with you today!

Multi award-winning wedding gown designer Sassi Holford is delighted to announce the launch of the 2015 Collection of her esprit label, So Sassi. Perfect for the young, modern bride with a sense of fashion and her own style, So Sassi is the creation of a young design team working in a highly creative environment under Sassi’s expert tutelage.

The collection features fresh, spirited dresses that combine exquisite silks and laces with contemporary twists – key hole backs, cut outs, sheer cap sleeves and ballerina length tulle. The dresses are handmade in Sassi’s workrooms in Somerset and the collection retails from £1,100.

“Our young designers understand the exuberance and style of contemporary brides,” says Sassi, “and that really comes across in the collection.  It’s attracted a great deal of interest from both retailers and brides looking for dresses that express that sense of joie de vivre that makes a wedding day so special – and being ‘made in England’ has become a key element.
