There’s a new stationery business on the wedding scene with everything from invitations to menus. Check out Whisky & Bloom’s bespoke and semi-bespoke stationery
Your wedding invitations are the first look your guests get into your wedding theme and style. It’s also a good opportunity to show off you and your partner’s personality, so it’s important to get the right look and feel.
Established in Elgin in 2022, Holly McFalls of Whisky & Bloom works with couples to create their dream wedding stationery. A graphic design graduate, she started the business after designing items for her brother-in-law’s nuptials and ended up hooked.
Bespoke wedding stationery
More and more, couples are looking for a bespoke service for elements of their wedding day, from creating their own wedding rings to working with cake designers to make something unique.
Your wedding stationery is no different, and while there are plenty of gorgeous designs out there, suppliers like Whisky & Bloom can create something totally bespoke for your big day.
When choosing Whisky & Bloom’s bespoke or semi-bespoke service, the process involves consulting with the couple to explore their needs and inspiration, followed by any alterations and final approval. All of their designs are printed in-house in their Moray studio, before being sent directly to you or your guests.
Unique wedding invitations
Whether you have a unique colour palette, or something sentimental you want to include in your invitations, choosing a bespoke or semi-bespoke service gives you more control over the design of your invitations.
To make the invites or save the dates feel more personal, you can include custom wedding venue illustrations, maps and other details specific to your big day.
It’s not just wedding invitations you can get creative with. “We have semi-bespoke and bespoke services for you to choose from, giving you the opportunity to source everything from invitations, to on-the-day stationery such as menus and place name cards,” Holly tells us.
Should I have menus at my wedding?
While you don’t need to have menus on the table at your wedding (unless your guests are choosing their meal at the time), they can be a nice touch. Not only does it provide a reminder of what’s to come, they’re a good way to bring your colour scheme to your tables.
Bespoke name place cards
Wedding menus might not be essential, but name place cards usually are! As well as telling everyone where to sit, they can act as table decor and add a splash of colour.
Whisky & Bloom bring a unique creative style to their wedding stationery, often using unusual motifs like seaglass, vintage stamps or mushrooms to tie into different wedding vibes.
