It may seem an odd time of year to be thinking about floral wedding stationery as it’s winter. Well I say winter, it’s December but seems to be quite mild. A balmy 9 degrees C today! But spring will be with us before we know it and the Winter itself isn’t without its blossoms. On a walk just a few days ago I passed a bush full of some tiny white little flowers, they looked exquisite. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me, though have already talked about winter flowers in a previous table names post you can find here.
So today I’d like to summarise our:
Floral wedding stationery and invitations
I think I’ll start with Sienna. Sienna I like because of its simple elegance. It’s designed to be simple and clean. When used as a design for a wedding invitation it works in unison with the Bride and Grooms name to make an attractive design. Style wise it’s clean lines can give it a modern or contemporary feel. Though it does have art nouveau and art deco influences as it works brilliantly with art deco fonts such as Plaza D Reg used in one of the pictures here. Script fonts also work well for a much more classic look. It can be further embellished with Swarovski crystals or pearls.

Next is Calabria’s turn, much newer than Sienna I’m yet to try adding crystals to it, though I have a feeling they will work really well. I was designing it to be a light and modern stylised floral design and I like using it with quite strong fonts as in the bifold invitation example on this page. Though like all the bespoke stationery collections they can be used with any font and like Sienna it seems to work rather well with Art Deco fonts.

Tuscany is the first stationery design I ever did and persuaded me that I liked doing printed designs rather than assembling more crafty creations. It’s actually based on roses though is heavily stylised using early 20th century influences. I like it in solid black but you can use it with multiple colours or at least using complimentary colours. Normally I do this by using a stronger colour at the edge than in the centres of the flower and leaves.

Naples and Sassari
Naples and Sassari I’ll talk about at the same time. As while flowers are not the main attraction they’re a very important supporting act. Naples is based around Butterflies and Sassari around Lovebirds (a small type of parrot). Both though have flowers across the background, behind the Bride and Grooms name in the designs.
Stationery featuring flowers and plants
I think this all of the stationery where flowers are front and centre in the design but other designs do have floral influences. Reggio Emilia is a baroque styled design based on detail you often found in baroque style decoration. But these are actually stylised plant leafs. Reggio Emilia definitely can be used to achieve an opulent look. Then we have Brescia, it’s a damask inspired design and like Reggio Emilia this means the design is based on plant leafs.
Bologne is one of our art deco designs. Featuring a sunray inspired elements in the background with an art deco band up the left hand side. Delicate looking flowers have been added to the foreground though to compliment and soften the straight lines behind. The Way to Go also made it onto the floral stationery list as while the sign posts may be the larger part of the design it is a country scene and what summer country scene would be complete without flowers in. Some versions of the design also uses flowers around the text.
You can see all these bespoke wedding invitation and stationery collections here on the floral stationery menu on the Artemis Stationery website.
This article may need repeating at a later date as some of the old floral stationery ranges which are currently not listed I am planning to update and then add back to the site once I’ve made samples and photographed them.
