What Makes a Wedding Memorable

Marriage has always been an integral part of society however, marrying for love is a relatively modern invention. Love defies conventions, and just like true friendship, it breaks down the boundaries of gender, language and culture. Marriage is a natural step towards officially sealing a couple’s love and commitment to each other.

Every couple wants their wedding ceremony and party to be special; one guests will remember and talk about for years to come. But how to create a buzz around it and make it stand out among others?

As with everything else, planning is key!

Although cultural traditions, religious beliefs and social status often set the scene for the big day, today’s couples are more focused on creating an atmosphere that truly reflects their personality, their bond and the things they enjoy in life. And they want to celebrate all this with the people they love.

Once a modest occasion, weddings have become a grand tradition with all their accompanying components.

Whether planning a traditional wedding in a country house, a lavish gathering in the Caribbean, a bohemian matrimony in the woods or an extravagant bash at a quirky boutique hotel, wedding stationery is an essential part of the occasion. A beautiful, bespoke invitation sets the style and theme for the big event and creates excitement among the invited guests. Incorporating luxurious, personalised, hand-made stationery into a wedding day can be the start of something truly special.

There is something quite magical about contributing to the most wonderful and memorable day of someone’s life. When it comes to wedding stationery, we at Downey particularly enjoy bringing a couple’s unique vision, ideas and personality to life and are here to guide them through the design and print production process to create something special and unique.

When creating a uniform look for any wedding stationery, the most important aspect to consider is the consistency of the design elements. Ahead of the wedding invitation, the bespoke, uniform appearance of the Save the Date card can set the tone, style and mood for the big day and, followed by a sumptuous invitation suite, it can influence other elements of the decoration (flowers, lighting, table setting, accessories and furniture). When all design and decorative elements follow the same style and appearance it creates a beautiful unified wedding look and a cohesive, warm atmosphere.
