I'm always researching lush details and intrigued by all the aspects that can make a wedding unique, when I create a wedding design concept.
So I decided to interview one of my favourite calligraphy designers for her beautiful wedding invitations (and other memorable events),
to find out how she develops stationary suites concepts for her clients as bespoke wedding stationary supplier.
RPYD: Where do you mostly find your inspirations?
V:On a daily basis I'm constantly inspired by the world around me: I may explore designs or
colour palettes within nature, flowers, the colours of sky, from fashion, fabrics.
Sometimes I find it when I look at paintings, or ancient decorations and vintage objects,
but also from modern design minimalism.
If we are open to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us, everything can inspire us..
RPYD: What are this year current trends on invitations, type of paper, colours, styles?
V: Craft paper texture, calligraphy, watercolour design, silk ribbons and wax seals are certainly
sought-after trends for wedding stationary suites this season.
Pastel shades, such as sage green, powder pink, teal/cerulean blue (for envelopes in particular),
as well as silk ribbons, are this 2020 hottest trends.
When matched with some strong burst of colour, they can give a luxurious touch
to your bespoke wedding stationary.
Sealing wax is a such a sophisticated touch, applied to any powder shades or striking gold or silver.
Finishing off your wedding guests details in calligraphy gives the envelopes a very classy look.
I usually suggest couples to use an ink colour that complements the envelope shade,
but more intense, or a tones that match the sealing wax: it looks super luscious and it create a focus point!
I feel adding flowers or leaves to envelopes and escort cards, really gives it a natural elegant look,
trendy and classic at the same time.
Couples who wish to have their own bespoke wedding stationary, have a wide range of possibilities
to customise it in as many details as they wish.
RPYD: Are the materials you use eco-friendly?
V: The craft papers I use are often produced by small companies in Italy, that use recycled cotton rags.
In addition, among the range of paper that I use, there are some made out of fruit and vegetable scraps and they may contain seeds,
that you can sow your invitation after the wedding and give it new life! .
RPYD: what do you like most about your job?
V: I love the relationship I create with the couple, creating the wedding stationary they have envisioned is a wonderful
experience and it's exciting to design a beautiful journey together.
Every project is always different from previous one and this constantly
leads me to imagine new combinations, new decorations, new styles to make their dreams come true.
RPYD: What design have you loved creating the most?
V: I confess it hard to answer this question, because when creating bespoke wedding stationary suites, every single project feels unique and exciting, different from previous ones, and I love every single design.
