Wedding Invites, Favour boxes and Gift Cards.. Oh My!

The one thing I love more than getting letters in the mail are receiving invitations.... to weddings, baby showers or birthdays. There is something about opening the beautiful envelope and seeing the bright, fancy, decorated invitation - maybe you can remember when the couple got together, or are so happy for your friend or family member.

These occasions form some of the happiest moments of people's lives, and I think it is a really special thing to be asked to take part in that.

So when I had the chance to receive some stationary from UK stationary company Paper Themes I jumped at it. I wasn't disappointed. A week ago, I received a package full of mock invitations {in a variety of styles}, favour boxes and gift cards. It made me excited! I fell in love with some of them, and would definitely recommend the products to someone who is getting married or planning an event and has not yet chosen invites. {they also sell accessories, custom made posters, other invites}

What I loved about the invites most of all, is that I was sent a varied selection and could see that there would easily be a theme to suit every couple. I was sent over ten invites, and there are many more to see on the site {head to the personalised wedding invitations page for more}. Just a few themes include traditional, pocket-fold, vintage, unusual and laser cut.
Reading on I found that you can completely design the invites {colour, theme AND wording}, will be sent a PDF copy to make sure you are happy with your creation and then sent the invites in a special box... oh and you also receive complimentary envelopes {bargain!}...


Some of the beautiful, different selections available. Brightly coloured; from mock concert posters, records, deck of card theme, ones tied with ribbons in envelopes and telegrams.
These invitations are fantastic quality and there are types for all budgets, including single card invites and ones that include guest information and rsvp cards (which are a postcard to send back and not need to pay for an envelope to send back your response).
For the Style Seeking Girl's Favourites! I really love the record themed invites - I love music so much, and think this would be so cute for couples who formed a relationship around music or share a common love for it. Great keepsake too. The other invites I loved are the world atlas themed ones and a vintage, floral looking invite with a rsvp card attached all perfectly put together in a pocket envelope. What I love most about these invites is that they are not too over the top and not overly girly. They say wedding, fun and are something a little different.
Gift/Lottery Cards
These cards can be used to either give a gift to the lucky couple or can be used by the newly weds to give a small token of thanks/fun to their guest -
all depends on what theme you pick, words you choose and what you put in it.
I actually think (with text change) that these cards would make the cutest thankyou cards! Slip a small photo of the bride and groom and a personal not of thanks for the gift that was given inside.
Simple, effective and definitely cute!
Favour Boxes
Small boxes scattered on each table or placed in the middle of each place setting - place chocolate, crystals, small gifts to thank your friends and family who are sharing in your special day. Or have the bridal party hand out the boxes at the end with a small, perfect slice of cake inside....
Which Favour Box will you choose?
These boxes can be delivered flat and are so easy to put together {get your bridesmaids together the day before and construct them together, once you get started you will have them done in no time!}
I love that you get the vast majority of creative control when personalising your invites, favours and cards. I think this makes the products from Paper Themes even more special. They have samples that are available and really aim to make sure that you are happy with your design before you buy. Go visit the website, or check out their Facebook page.
