Birds, they’re cool and particularly in fashion at this present time throughout all manner of wedding items, not just stationery. Actually saying that I can think of cake toppers and maybe venue and table décor (see Pinterest). Not seen any Bride or Groom dressed like a bird as such. Although there are some dresses that look amazing and pay a bit of a nod to birds like the peacock. My main bird range is called Sassari and has been around a couple of years. Today I thought I would share how one of my brilliant clients Lauren used Sassari for her wedding day stationery.
Sassari Wedding Stationery
If you’re not familiar with Sassari above is an image of a Sassari invitation. I’ll try my best to describe what’s going on and how the elements can be used. In the background we have a lot of flowers. They’re more geometric than natural looking as they’re meant to be a nice background rather than the main show. But there’s three different types all in varying sizes. In front of the flowers we have our lovebirds. These birds are based on the actual Lovebird species. Rather than a pair of birds looking loved up. Lovebirds are actually a small type of parrot. You often see bird of paradise or other tropical birds being used instead. After reading about Lovebirds though I decided to go mini parrot! Feel free to follow this link to the Wikipedia page on lovebirds, but please come back.
The Lovebirds are shown in pairs flying up the page and although being shown mostly in silhouette their shapes are drawn in a natural style. In front of them we have the text which would normally be the Bride and Grooms name and the name of which ever item of stationery it was. Eg Wedding Invitation or Order of Service. Sassari can easily work with two colours, the most obvious way of doing it to put the flowers in one colour and the birds in another. But there is also room for other accent colours to be included. You can see more of Sassari the Lovebird bespoke wedding stationery collection here on the Artemis Stationery website.

Back to Lauren. She’d already had Sassari invitations for her wedding and was sticking with the same bespoke wedding stationery collection for the wedding. Each of the tables were being named after different birds with Lovebirds being used for the top table. For the top table we used the typical Sassari place names as shown. But on the other tables we swapped out the Lovebird for the bird that table was named after. You can see the various designs we used beneath.
These I think brought real touch of individuality to each table and showed a lot of attention to detail and was a wedding I loved working on.
If you like Sassari you can see it on my bespoke wedding stationery site here. It’s available in any colour, style and can be made as a wide variety of items. Sassari has also been featured in Perfect Wedding Magazine as well as on several Wedding blogs.
