As Beauty and the Beast takes the cinema by storm we are getting so many press requests for ‘Fairytale’ inspired stationery for weddings. Renowned for telling people’s life stories through illustration, we do provide the most Fairytale inspired stationery you could wish for, but that got us thinking about how you can create the rest of your wedding along this theme with style and substance.
When the words ‘Fairytale wedding’ pop up, there is a bit of a worry that all we can visualise are fluffy pinks, diamantes and satin bows, well not anymore! We’ve had a bit of a search around for lovely ideas which tell your story but intertwine the fantasy and most importantly, the magic of the fairytale.
Well, let’s start with the big one, The dress. As you well know Bridal wear is just incredible at the moment, long gone are the 80’s meringue and frou, and now you have haut-couture at your finger tips. Our favourite Bridal designers, to name a few are Charlie Brear, Kate Halfpenny, Temperley, and more recently, Grace loves Lace has been popping up in our feeds with stunning designs (above), now in the UK too!
Obviously we can talk invitations for hours on this subject, but thought we’d give you a slightly different option to our Storyboard invitations and books, here is a knock out invitation which contains a real glass cloche, inside you can have anything you like, perhaps a flower or even an object about you both as a couple, so many options and so magical, one for your guests to keep for a lifetime…
Another, slightly different, invitation suggestion, mirrored acrylic, a simple yet effective take on the ‘mirror mirror’ theme, we can engrave designs and change the shapes, an invitation people will remember!
Okay, okay, those lanterns again, but really, they just are the epitome of magical for any wedding – hanging escort lanterns you take to your table with you, they light up and provide stunning decoration for your table scapes, with matching table numbers, Belle would totally have had these on her big day…..
An outdoor wedding in the woods, we take inspiration from across the pond for ultimate outside wedding goals, outside in the woods yet chic and stylish, mix up the furniture, hanging installation and petals on the floor tying it all together, simply stunning.
Our Signature Storyboard books, the ultimate Cutture ‘Your Story’ invitations, these are illustrated life stories of your life together, all laser cut and then we can make them into any format you choose, a book, a simple double fold, a pop-up, after a design consultation with us we can create your ideal fairytale story.
Cake; naked, woodland vibes, we love this cake found on Pinterest, looks so simple and delicious, perfect for the magical woodland wedding, you can almost see Fairies in there too….
Of course, the Emmy London Cinderella shoe HAS to make an appearance, Emmy’s shoes are just beautiful and fit for many a wedding style, they work indoors, outdoors, traditional, informal… these are the original Cinderella shoe Emmy became synonymous for, below is her ‘Victoria’ style, equally beautiful. Emmy’s shoes are regularly worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, so really are fit for Royalty.
