If you are a fan of the simplistic and timeless elegance of the Art Nouveau period, then you will be irresistibly drawn to our exclusive 'High Society'
range of wedding stationary.
This range captures completely the mood of the Art Nouveau movement. Using stylised lilies and incorporating the initials of the bride and groom these invitations hark back to a bygone era. Even the simple monochrome effect says elegance, with a frosted panel overlaying the black printing upon the silver card beneath.
This new and exclusive range has been designed to meet the ideals and high expectations of a contemporary couple and will in no way disappoint. This stunning range also allows you the flexibility of selecting your own wording for the cards interior, making your stationary totally unique to you.
Allow the contemporary theme to flow through your special day by perhaps carrying hand tied lilies in your bouquet, or having smaller, single lilies as button holes. Simplicity and elegance never go out of fashion, and your sense of style will be something that will be impressed upon your guests, and perhaps something future couple may attempt to emulate.

When it comes to inviting your guests to be a part of your celebrations, make sure they can see by your choice of stationary, that you have made a personal choice, rather than gone for an off the shelf packet of ready to use invitations.
Adding personalisation to your stationary shows that you have paid a lot of attention and invested a great deal of thought into your whole day, starting right at the point of inviting your guests. It also shows that you care enough about these people you have chosen to celebrate your day with to take the time to create your perfect stationary.
Why not create your own verse and have it printed inside each invitation? Sometimes having only the names, date and place of the event inside such a beautiful card can be a disappointment, make your invitations personal and sincere so that they make your guests feel included in the big day, rather than just that they have been requested to attend.
Selecting stationary like 'The Big Day'
from our Romantique range, allows you to do just that, allowing you your own unique designer wedding

Many people these days look to recapture the romance of by gone days by holding a wedding with a medieval theme. Perhaps they want a Robin Hood themed wedding where he marries his Maid Marion, or they are simply harking back to the days of the damsel in distress being rescued by her knight in shining armour and being whisked away for a romantic wedding in a wooded glade?
With so much to think about in organising an event of this nature it would be understandable if the style of the wedding invitations was overlooked, or perhaps given thought to only as a last minute thing. After all where do you start looking for an invitation that fits in with the whole renaissance theme, when you are going to spend such a long time looking for the perfect dress and matching wardrobe from the groom and wedding party?
Well this is where we can help you. We have a selection of stationary in our store that caters to those looking for something different, something unusual, either as a reflection of
their own quirky style, or to compliment a solid theme.

It has taken a while for polite society to warm to the idea, and even accept the concept of 'Civil Partnerships'. But, with thanks to a pioneering couple who were 'married' in the Netherlands in 2001, the idea has gradually spread and become accepted across the western world.
The United Kingdom legalised these civil ceremonies in 2006 and since then the number of couples opting to solidify their relationship in this 'official' manner has increased.
However, some couples have found it difficult to organise an event, or find suitable items to be included in such a ceremony, that do not in some way reflect the mixed sex relationships of a traditional marriage, ultimately depersonalising the whole event for the happy couple and taking away a little of its sparkle.
Tailored options are available however, and here we believe everything related to the big day should be a reflection of the couple involved. Take for example our 'Love is'
range of invitations. These lovely invitations can be personalised to met your exact needs, allowing you to add a touch of the personal to what can sometimes be a

The humble wedding invitation has come a long way over the centuries...
The original Town Criers would sing out details of forthcoming marriages as part of their daily news, inviting everybody within earshot to the celebrations – could you imaging doing that in this day and age? Later families of wealth or high standing would commission monks to hand write invitations using their wonderfully detailed calligraphy script, each of which would be sealed with wax bearing the family seal or crest, a practice still continued today by some. Such a detailed , high cost process made the sending of invitations out of the reach of the majority of people, this is until the 1940's.
After WW2 the use of printed invitations became regarded as 'proper or polite etiquette', and to hold a ceremony without first issuing the appropriate stationary was unthinkable.
To recapture some of this traditional formality and original style we have a range of traditional invitations to suit all budgets, for example the traditional 'Special Scroll
' invitation for the romance conscious or the 'To Have & To Hold
' invitation reflecting classic style.
However you choose to announce your

These days many people are choosing to marry abroad and who could blame them, sun, sea & sand perfect. And the chances of being rained on are very slim!
It sounds ideal doesn't it, but what about all the people you want to share your happy moment with? Most people choose to celebrate this romantic occasion with a reception back at home, this way they can share this special moment with everyone they are close to.
But of course you don't want them to miss out on your wedding day so why not invite them to the reception via a postcard from where you are getting married from!
Here at Wedding Invitation UK we have a fantastic range of getting married abroad cards, from location postcards
to gorgeously themed Up and Away
