Emma Pink Floral On The Day Wedding Stationery Collection

Introducing our gorgeous Emma Pink Floral On The Day Wedding Stationery Collection.

“I always deserve the best treatment because I never put up with any other.”

– Jane Austen, Emma

Feel handsome, clever and rich with this Emma-inspired Pink Stationery.

Marrying Paul Rudd? Perhaps Jeremy Northam? Johnny Lee Miller? Mark Strong? Whether it’s none or all of the above, show off the union of yourself and your Mr Knightley with this pretty monogrammed set. Done with meddling in the love affairs of others, you can bask in the glory of your own match. 

Printed on gorgeous, thick textured paper,  and double sided for that extra wow factor. I’ve also included a monogram, to give you that extra pop of colour! Our sample here is pink – could Emma have any other colour? But we can change yours to fit your theme free of charge.

The Emma Pink Floral On The Day Wedding Stationery Collection includes:

Persuasion-Inspired Watercolour On The Day Wedding Stationery Collection

Persuasion-Inspired Watercolour On The Day Wedding Stationery Collection

Introducing our Persuasion-Inspired Watercolour On The Day Wedding Stationery Collection!

“There could have been no two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison”

– Jane Austen, Persuasion

Your wedding stationery needn’t be a wash-out with this watercolour set. Whether or not you’ve waited eight years for your beloved to propose again!

The umbrella scene inspires this delicate pink and grey wash set. You know the one! In the coffee shop, when it’s raining and Captain Wentworth offers Anne his umbrella. *Swooning sigh* I just love this scene, although I don’t entirely know why. Perhaps it’s the umbrella/giant hat combo. Anyway…

Printed on gorgeous, thick textured paper, each piece in the watercolour order of service looks hand-painted. So it’s particularly befitting the daughter of a foolish spendthrift Baronet!

Bridal Book Club – June – Northanger Abbey

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”

Jane Austen – Northanger Abbey

Last but not least, it’s time for Northanger Abbey!

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

My favourite Jane Austen novel varies, depending mostly on which I’m reading, or which adaptation I’ve seen most recently. But in one thing, Northanger Abbey will always be my favourite. Mr Tilney is, and I will take no argument, the best Austen hero. He just is. I might change my mind on this after a re-read, but for now I can say with absolute confidence: Mr Tilney rules. 

Here’s the blurb for you:

This coming-of-age story revolves around Catherine Morland, a young and naïve “heroine”, who entertains the reader on her journey to a better understanding of the world and those around her. In the course of the novel, she discovers that she differs from those other women who crave wealth or social acceptance, as instead she wishes only to have happiness supported by genuine morality.

Wikipedia

It’s got love, it’s got loose morals, it’s got jokes. What more could you want from a book?

Unlike the other Austens, this one’s light on the adaptations, heavy on the background reading. It’s a satire of some of the most popular Gothic Novels of the time, and if you’ve got neither the time nor inclination to read said Gothic novels, let me just assure you that they are:

a) full of fainting heroines

b) thrilling

c) very silly fun

So without further ado, here are some free resources for you to read along:)

What next?

  • Thursday 27th June 2019 – Facebook Group Book Club Discussion 

And don’t forget to keep and eye on twitter and instagram for Bridal Book Club chat and pics. If you’re watching any of the adaptations, please share your thoughts either in the Facebook Group, or on twitter with #bridalbookclub

Adatation wise, there are 2 main ones:

ITV is my absolute favourite because of the incomparable JJ Field. And Felicity Jones is spot on.

If you enjoy the story, there’s a modern version by Val McDermid, set in around the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. 

And so, there’s the end of Austen!:( 

But fear not, after a few months off, there’ll be some more classics coming up! I’m thinking Dickens for Christmas, some Bronte and Gaskell for an indeterminate time in the future. Any requests, let me know!

Reach the Gold Standard with our Deluxe Corporate Range

deluxe corporate event stationery

Sophisticated and classic, with just a touch of gold. Our Deluxe range features a mottled blue background, reminiscent of well-worn leather, and is hand-finished with just a touch of faux-gold leaf.

Place Card – available pre-printed or blank

These are hand-finished, and so each gold-tipped corner will be slightly different. This adds to its charm and historic appearance. I adore this grand range, which will add gravitas to any occasion.

Colour changes and logo included at no extra charge. Minimum order of 30 for place cards and cards. Download our Corporate Brochure for more information.

Bridal Book Club – May – Mansfield Park

“A fondness for reading, properly directed, must be an education in itself.”

Jane Austen – Mansfield Park

It’s Mansfield Park month!

Mansfield Park, Jane Austen Bridal Book Club

In the interests of full disclosure, I have a lot of feelings about Mansfield Park. 

I did my uni dissertation on Austen adaptations (because of course I did!) and I chose Mansfield Park to focus on. I picked it because I liked it the least, I’d never read it and I forgot it was one of the longest books! It’s fair to say that it did make me appreciate Mansfield Park a lot more. 

Straight off – I don’t like any of the adaptations, except for the old BBC one. But it isn’t a story which lends itself to modern re-tellings, I don’t think. Of all the Austens, I’d say it’s the most of its time. 

I’m not trying to put you off, because I really feel that Mansfield Park is the most undervalued of Austen’s novels. It’s definitely worth a read! Here’s the blurb for you:

The novel tells the story of Fanny Price, starting when her overburdened, impoverished family sends her at age ten to live in the household of her wealthy aunt and uncle; it follows her development and concludes in early adulthood.

From early on critical reception has been diverse. To some, the heroine Fanny Price was appealing; to others appalling. Some saw the novel as straightforward; others as intensely ironic with many disguised allusions. Some have emphasised the novel’s traditional values; others have emphasised radical and feminist interpretations. Was Austen for or against theatrical performance? What part does religion and ordination play in the novel?

Wikipedia

That’s a lot of questions for a blurb to ask! Hold on to your bonnets, it’s going to be an interesting one!

Customised Wedding Stationery – How Does It Work?

One of the great things about our Wedding Stationery ranges are that they can be completely customised. I thought I’d take a moment to just run through the process of how this works. Our ranges are really flexible, and there’s a lot you get included, with no surprise costs involved!

You can find our current price list here:

Giftast Standard Price List 2019

Invitation Suites

All the items which make up our suites are priced individually, so you’re not sold a pack of anything, and you can be really flexible. For example, if you want to miss out Save the Dates and ask for RSVPs by text, no problem! You only need to buy what you actually want. 

customised wedding stationery - how does it work?

If you like a design, but it doesn’t fit your theme, then we can change the colours for you for no extra cost.

The cost on our price list per unit is the cost you pay. 

Want to include extra info on the invite? No problem – just let us know the text you want, and we will look at your options. It may be that we have to make a double sided invitation, or we might suggest you include an additional info card if you have a lot of information to share. We can mock up designs for your approval, so you know exactly what you’ll be getting when you order.

Again, this is all priced by unit, so no nasty surprises. 

gemma pink and grey save the date

The same applies for adding any extra info to Save the Dates and RSVPs – just let us know what you want to include, and we will do our best to accommodate it on the original design, all for no extra cost.

Unit prices also include kraft and white envelopes, as well as a range of different paper finishes and double sided printing.

On The Day

We’ve talked here about what you might want to consider when you’re planning your On The Day Stationery – this also works using our range items. 

Just as with our Invitation Suites, everything can be personalised, from colours to text, to suit your needs. If you want a menu, even though we don’t have one of those in our samples, we can mock one up for your approval using the basic designs we already have, and it will be priced as per the price list. The same goes for any extra signs or notes you want to include on your day.

Elegant Place Cards

Want something different?

Our price list doesn’t include items such as stickers, belly bands or envelope liners. Simply contact us and ask for a quote, and you’ll be provided with a unit price based on your needs. If you want these to match range items there will be no bespoke fee.

We also offer free consultations by Skype or phone, to discuss your wedding stationery ideas and requirements. Just drop us an email to book in.

Don’t forget, you can save 10% when you sign up to our Newsletter!

Using Pinterest for Wedding Planning

Here at Giftast, we’re big fans of using Pinterest for Wedding Planning. Whenever I’m planning a new range, or searching for references, Pinterest is always my first port of call. There’s such a wide variety of ideas and inspiration. Whatever your theme, you’re sure to find something you love.

Giftast Pinterest board - using Pinterest for Wedding Planning
Check out the Giftast Pinterest Board for inspiration!

When it comes to planning your bespoke wedding stationery, Pinterest can be super helpful as well. Not only will it give you lots of ideas on what might be possible, but it’s a great way to pass those ideas on to your designer. 

A picture really is worth a thousand words, and creating your own ideas board will save you lots of time.

On the Giftast Pinterest board, we showcase all of our ranges, as well as sharing other wedding ideas we absolutely love! From Cakes to Photographers, and from Jewellery to Bridesmaids’ dresses, there are loads of ideas just waiting for you.

Downsides? Pinterest, like Instagram, is a beautifully curated collection of ideals. Not all the photos you see on Pinterest will necessarily be achievable within a sensible budget. And just like Instagram, not everything you see will be real!

However, as an inspirational tool for when you’re first starting your wedding planning and gathering your ideas together, Pinterest is a brilliant starting point.
