It's All In The Detail

Updated: Oct 14

When it comes to wedding stationery, one of our key focuses has always been our attention to the little details and finishing touches.


From the size and composure of the typography, to spelling, grammar and punctuation, we like to consider every minute detail in the wedding invitations we design.


One area we've really focused on over the past year, is the little add-ons, extras and flourishes that really take your stationery to the next level.


Here's our top 10 wedding invitation finishing touches, in no particular order explaining the benefits of each and offering a guide price for a typical order
