Tracey and Billy tied the knot in July 2023 at Pencoed House, just outside Cardiff in South Wales. They visited me in my studio in the January before their big day, to design and make their pink floral wedding invitations and stationery. They liked my white and green floral design, but were looking for something to incorporate their blush pink colour scheme. Here’s how I worked with them, and what we made for their wedding.
Pink floral wedding invitations with navy accents
Tracey and Billy knew they didn’t need to include much information on their invitations. They were setting up a wedding website, and all the details would be included there. They would also be asking their guests to reply via the website, so they didn’t need a separate RSVP card. With this in mind, a simple flat wedding invitation was the perfect choice. Printed on both sides, we were able to include a small amount of detail, including the venue address, a note about wedding gifts, and the all important website address along with a corresponding QR code.

The theme for the wedding was a pale, blush pink with accents of navy blue. To give their simple wedding invitations a little extra ‘wow factor’ they added a matching, printed vellum wrap closed with natural ivory coloured twine and a pink wax seal. Navy envelopes completed the look.
Pink floral invitations for the evening wedding reception
For their evening reception, Tracey and Billy chose to have the same style of invitation as the day, a double sided, simple flat card with navy envelopes. The evening invitations did not have the vellum jacket or wax seal.
On the day stationery to match their pink floral wedding invitations
To keep the theme running throughout the day, I designed a complete matching suite of wedding day stationery for Tracey and Billy
Wedding table plan with blush pink flowers
An A2 size table plan was ample for Tracey and Billy’s five guest tables, plus their top table. They chose to have first names only on their table plan to keep a nice, relaxed feel to the day. Again, I used the floral design to match their pink floral wedding invitations, picking up accents of pink and navy in the text.
Pink floral wedding place cards
Tracey and Billy chose classic, tent style cards for their place names. Each had the pink floral design across the top with the guest’s name printed on the front. I added the bride and groom’s names and wedding date to the back. Tracey and Billy chose to give each of their guests a charity pin badge as a wedding favour, so I adapted the layout of their place cards to allow these to be attached.
Pretty wedding menu cards
The menus were folded cards, one for each table, that carried the pink floral theme. I printed the bride and groom’s names on the front, and meat and vegetarian menus on the inside. On the back, we included a note about the charities that Tracey and Billy had made donations to, instead of wedding favours.
Blush and navy wedding table numbers
Table number cards also had the same pink floral design. I make my table numbers tent-style so that they can either be used free-standing or folded flat to fit into the clip-type holders. Tracey and Billy’s were backed with navy, to keep within their colour theme.
Pink floral wedding order of the day and welcome sign
Tracy and Billy chose a combined order of the day and welcome sign, rather than having two separate boards. Again, we use the pink floral design with the text in navy and accents of pink.
Matching wedding signs with pink flowers
To finish the look off, we created a few other wedding signs to match Tracey & Billy’s pink floral wedding invitations. An A3 size board, asking guests to respect their wishes for an unplugged ceremony. Three smaller, A5 size, signs that we make tent style to be freestanding: for confetti, for their sparkler send-off, and also to remember those guests no longer with us.
So that was how I created a fully coordinated suite of pink floral wedding invitations and on the day stationery for Tracey and Billy’s wedding in South Wales. The delicate blush, watercolour floral design is perfect for a spring or summer wedding. Teaming this with navy envelopes and accents throughout the text gives it a super elegant feel.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about Tracey and Billy’s stationery. If you have, why not go and have a look at some other bespoke and semi-custom-designed wedding stationery that I have made for other happy couples.
Are you looking for a particular design for your wedding stationery, but can’t find just what you want? I would love to have a chat with you, and create something bespoke just for you and your wedding. Sometimes that is adapting one of my existing house collections, and changing the colour of the flowers, like I did with Tracy and Billy. Or, that’s starting from scratch with a completely fresh design.
