One of my all time favourite stationery designers is Cristina Re. Every time I go to Officeworks I drool over her DIY range which consists of beautiful paper, ready made invitations, punches and embellishments, tools and accessories.
Cristina Re has been a leader in the stationery industry for the past 20 years and it’s not hard to see why.

I’m really embarrassed to admit that I’d never seen Shannon Kirsten’s beautiful designs before. Her work is incredible. Really, really breathtaking. I seem to be in a bold colour mood lately and her designs hit the spot.
I may be a little late to the party but boy I’m an instant fan. In fact I’ve already picked the invitations I want to use for my own (sometime soon I hope) wedding. Can you pick which one I’d choose?

How freaking awesome is the wedding suite by the über talented Elizabeth Baddeley? They are Elizabeth’s own invitations for her recent nuptials. Absolutely gorgeous work!

Need to ask some besties to be your bridesmaid? Do it cute-style with these cards from The First Snowfall.
Remember these?! I don’t remember what we called them at my primary school but in other parts of the world they’re called cootie catchers. Many a recess was whiled away playing with these.
How clever is this wedding suite by One Little M? Cootie catcher wedding invitations = awesome!
I saw this amazing folded wedding invitation on Pinterest this morning and I had to share. It was created by Italian designers Shhh My Darling and I think it’s just about the most precious thing I’ve ever seen. Ruffled is featuring more of their work in an Italian Seaside Themed gallery. So pretty!
Here are some other examples of Shhh My Darling‘s wedding work.

When one starts planning a wedding, the first thought is usually about dresses, flowers, bridesmaids etc. Not me, I was excited about cake and the stationary. Just a quick Google of ‘wedding invites‘ yields some beautiful designers but I knew what I wanted for our Save the Dates. Combine that with local designer Sarah Enid and we ended up with perfect Save The Date postcards. They were exactly what we wanted, and even more.
Now that the Save the Dates are out (small public service announcement never abbreviate Save the Dates, ever) it gives us more time to work on the invites. I plan on making these myself but I will have enough time to change my mind and purchase some if needed, and there really are some lovely designs out there.
With winter just around the corner, you can’t go past these themed invites. Here are some of my favourites.

“I am Stacey and I am finding my footing in the blogverse over at Life on Cephei. I am planning a wedding for September and am too focused on the invites to worry about anything else.”
Today I wanted to share with you the work of Perth-based Tamara Harrison. I met Tamara through Twitter when she introduced me to her handmade, paper wedding bouquets. I’ve seen similar things before but none of them are as beautiful as Tamara’s creations.
I love that she intersperses paper with different trinkets like bejeweled brooches or ribbons to create a bouquet that is completely unique and original. Go and check out her site for more information about her work.
(Tamara – just a head’s up – I’ll be wanting one of these for my someday wedding)
