I went to my local charity bookshop and picked up vintage atlas’ to make all my wedding stationary and invitations. I also went to the art and craft store and picked up pearlised paper for 80p to make butterfly confetti and a new butterfly shaped punch.
I’m well on my way to being on budget and making loads of paper craft for our day.
Thanks for reading. I just wanted to share some wedding excitement 😀

@Soon2BD-CBee: and @MapleLeafMel:
I love the idea (SO and I are big travellers) but I’m not sure how you would incorporate it into a wedding.
What have you ladies done?

@Mischka: FH and I love travel, in the two and a bit years we’ve been officially a couple we’ve been to India, Portugal, Spain and became engaged in New York!
So as a starting point we are using really old beautiful maps to make heart shapes (of the places we’ve been) and sticking them to really nice pearlised card for the invites. I’m also making butterfly and heart confetti with the maps to pretty up the reception table centrepieces.
For the bm corsages I’m making map paper roses on pearl bands. I might make hair clips too.
We are making a travel inspired photobooth with hats and sunglasses. For the table names we using photos from our travels and postcards/airmail envelopes for escort cards. For our guestbook we are having a vintage style suitcase filled with blank postcards that we’ve like our guests to fill in so we can read them on our honeymoon…I’ll then make them into wall art when we return home.
The evening buffet is a nod to foods we’ve eaten on our travels.
I think that’s about it for now…if I can offer you any more tips, just ask.
