With such calm, idyllic surroundings, country weddings are becoming one of the hottest wedding trends. A rustic setting is the perfect place for romance, and a beautiful backdrop for you to say,…

Confetti’s 2014 Win a Wedding competition worth £40,000 was won by Laura and Daniel. We provided the wedding stationery from our vast shop selection, and Laura and Daniel decided on the Vintage Affair wedding stationery DIY collection. Therefore, here in the Confetti office we’ve come together to give three ways that this wedding stationery can be personalised.
Using Confetti’s Vintage Affair wedding stationery collection from our DIY Wedding Invitations range , three of our staff were asked to take one of each of the items and decorate and present it as we saw fit. The results couldn’t have been more different!
Sahdia, our Real Weddings and wedding inspiration specialist, opted for all that glitters with some pretty glitter pens in colours of red, purple, green, gold, and silver. Carefully, she traced the lines of her stationery to add life and colour to the borders. Then the love hearts were set a-sparkling too when Sahdia applied a light coat of red glitter.
As a finishing touch, Sahdia then punched a hole in the top left-hand corner of her stationery and tied them all together with shimmering gold chiffon ribbon.
Anyonita, Confetti’s Content Editor, went for a stunning vintage look with pale pink lace ribbon glued along the left edge of the stationery items. Then she layered all of her vintage wedding stationery items together, lightly sticking them to the layer below with double-sided tape, and wrapped them all with doubled-up brown twine. As a finishing touch, she added a cute little tag!
Finally, I wanted to make my vintage wedding stationery a little bit more 3D. I glued Confetti’s Natural Wooden Buttons (as well as decorative ones from a nearby craft store) into the corners of the stationery items and even on the envelopes. Then I filled in the thin stationery borders with red watercolour paint and added pieces of lace and ribbon to the envelopes. The final results remind me of vintage carnival tickets!
