Do not underestimate the importance of your wedding stationery! This is your first chance to introduce the wonderful fairy tale your guests will be part of. Treat it like your ‘Introduction’ to the story about to unfold. Don’t settle for second best either! It’s worth finding the design, the personality and the stationery that matches who you are rather than thinking ‘that’ll do’ with off the shelf, pre-made, bulk sold invitations. Go Chanel, not Primark!

Your unique wedding stationery is the beginning of your story

I am a self confessed stationery addict. I struggle to walk past a stationery shop, particularly Paper Chase, and try NOT to think of an excuse to go in for that ‘thing’ I’m sure I need but have forgotten what it is. And so imagine my delight when I find beautifully crafted wedding stationery online. Mmm, the only thing missing is the smell of the paper after it’s just been delivered.

So, right now, take a breath in through the nose and pretend we have a 4d experience about to happen because the invitations by Distink Designs are creatively beautiful and unique and are so packed full of personality, I love that they all lead you into an idea of what the wedding will be like.

From Jocelyn of Distink Designs:

A sheet of paper is an incidental thing, a reminder of a time before electronics ruled our world. But me, paper is a blank canvas waiting to be transformed into a celebration of life’s biggest moments. A giddy bride and groom announcing their love. A mother-to-be inviting family to rejoice in her pregnancy. Fascinated and armed with my love of the arts and anything”one of a kind” I  turned to my computer in 2008, and began using modern tools to marry my love of vintage style with my modern artistic aesthetic.

The result: An elegant line of stationery that reflects the beauty, and occasional whimsy, of such pivotal moments. Today my line of special event printed stationery and custom electronic invitations – sold under the DistInk Designs brand – have been recognized by numerous wedding and party planning websites. My  stationery products have been used by hundreds of women and men who understand the joy that comes from receiving a lovely invitation – whether in email or delivered by a postman.

Choose wisely

Choose wedding invitations that reflects who you are and what you like. Don’t think your wedding invitations aren’t important, they so are!!! Invite your guests to take part in your wedding, not just fill in a date on their calendar!

Remember the rule of three’s… choose the design you love that reflects your 1. Personality, 2. that will tell your story and 3. will give them a taste of who you are and what’s to come with your Unique Hand Made Wedding Invitations. With bespoke stationery creators like Distink Designs, your choices are endless. And, I’ll admit, it’s probably going to be one of the most satisfying parts of planning your wedding, other than the dress, of course!

Have a frabjously fantastical Monday!



I’ve never followed trends as I disliked being just one of the crowd so my love for things that are different, unusual, beautiful and stylistic that I’d had all my life transformed into Alice in Weddingland.
