“Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.” - Oscar Wilde
The way we plan our weddings has changed dramatically over the past few years and whilst social media, blogs and of course Pinterest are all amazing and useful sources of inspiration for your big day, it can become difficult not to get sidetracked into what you think your wedding should look like, instead of what it is you actually want and, most importantly what is a true reflection of you both as a couple. By all means, get inspired, but don’t follow trends if you think you may regret it later.
At Bonnie Day Studio we love to tell your stories through beautiful design. Your stationery is usually one of the first visual items organised and it really can set the tone and feel for your big day, whether that's formal or informal, intimate or an excuse for a huge party. It is your chance to have a design created just for you, to reflect your personalities and what you both love.
One of our favourite ever custom creations was designed for Nicole and Tom. They were planning a destination wedding on the stunningly beautiful Hamilton Island located off the coast of Queensland, Australia. Whilst the wedding was to be held at an exclusive resort with a very long guest list, Nicole and Tom really wanted the day to be completely personal to them. The wedding stationery had to reflect all of the fun and laughter in their relationship, they openly admitted that they drive each other crazy a lot of the time, but they never take anything too seriously. This gave us the idea to create a boxing match style design, using vintage boxing posters as our inspiration.
We were told that the invitations made their guests laugh out loud when they received their envelopes in the mail, could you ask for anything more?
All that really matters is that you have fun with your wedding planning, enjoy it and share it. Stay true to yourselves, this is your chance to have a day that really is all about you - make the most of it. And remember that when it’s over, this is only the beginning,
not the end!
