Beautiful Wedding Stationery from Beacon Lane for the Vintage Loving Modern Bride
Morning lovelies! I am excited to be kicking off the week with one of my favourite wedding details. I have often spoken of my personal weakness for all things paper – I confess, I can lose hours looking at cards and stationery, with no occasion for them, and being the addict I am, I have a little stash of cards hidden away at home for whenever the whim to write takes me. And no stationery can be more important than that for your big day! I don’t think there can be any underestimating the attention you should pay to your choice of wedding stationery – after all, your invitation is the first glimpse your guests get of your big day, it sets the tone; it not only tells them the when and where, it lets your nearest and dearest know at a glance whether your proceedings will be formal or casual, elegant or fun, timeless or modern; and on the day your stationery ties everything together and your thank-you cards complete the story. So, here at CVB I like to showcase the very best wedding stationery and today I would like to introduce you to Chic Vintage Brides sponsor and favourite Beacon Lane….
Inspired by timeless and classic design and a love for all things vintage, Beacon Lane have come up with the recipe for perfect wedding stationery – lashings of romance, elegance, whimsy and rustic chic, along with a splash of eco-friendly and finished with a touch of handmade luxury. They offer the complete package, with total attention to detail and a quality service that is second to none (just look at their reviews – 5 star average from over 1000 happy customers!!)
With a store on online marketplace Etsy, Beacon Lane is a small boutique stationer who are passionate about perfecting the art of the invite. The company started back in 2011 after Owner, Designer, Founder and Creative Director Jessica created her own vintage inspired wedding stationery. Nowadays, Jessica concentrates on designing, planning and perfecting her Beacon Lane products, whilst each invite continues to be hand assembled, all be it now by her able production assistants Monica and Michelle. Their beautiful designs are sold in either an envelope or, for a real touch of opulence, a box. And understanding the importance of making your wedding perfect, all Beacon Lane designs can be customized to make them uniquely yours! Changes to the wording, fonts, ink colors, envelopes, backing paper, and belly band colors/types are all complimentary and are done during your ordering process.
Each commission and invite is an absolute labor of love; designed, customized, and hand assembled with green materials like twine & recycled papers, or more luxe materials like shimmer ribbon, metallic paper and envelopes, and stylish hand-addressed envelopes (they even have an in house calligrapher!). And whilst a boutique stationer, Beacon Lane are happy and able to work on large and intimate weddings as well as ship to clients all over the world. What I love most about Beacon Lane though is their beautifully distinctive and diverse designs – if however, you should love the style of Jessica’s stationery as I do, but are not able to find a design you adore in their current collection, she also offers a bespoke design service.
Aren’t they lovely? And this is just a selection of the designs available, there are lots more in their store (and check back in with Chic Vintage Brides in a few weeks to see their fabulous new 2014 collection!) I think my favourite design is the sassy Modern Ink – how about you? Any of these designs catch your eye? If so, you can find their sample listings here, order your favourite and see the quality of the design, materials and finish for yourself.
P.S. – if you would like to see more of their work (and just a few of their happy customers) then take a look at the Beacon Lane Real Wedding Pinterest board and you can find a helpful comprehensive pricing guide here.
