Wedding invitations and stationery set the theme
of your wedding. Your invites are normally the first thing your
guests will see and first impressions are important.
There are many professional designers, printers and calligraphers
who can design and print your wedding invites.
Alternatively, if you have artistic flair, you may decide to make
your own invitations. You can even carry your theme or colours across
to your name place tags, Order of Services booklets etc.

boxes to sand in a bottle for beach weddings.
