Choosing the Wedding Stationery of Dreams

This month we are extremely pleased to welcome Little Pea Designs to our blog. Recent winners of the ‘Best Stationery Award’ at the EDP Bride Wedding Awards, we couldn’t be happier to have her write for us. Read on to find out some Top Tips for choosing the correct stationary for your wedding.

With the countdown growing smaller every day and with almost everything else sorted, it’s time for some finishing touches. The biggest day of your life deserves to be shouted about in a show stopping way. What better way to do this than through your wedding stationery? Your invitations will set the tone of your day and give your guests a sneaky peek of what they can expect on your wedding day. Choosing your invitations can be daunting with so many choices out there but hopefully our top tips will help your decision making a little easier.

At Little Pea Designs we pride ourselves on our customer focused approach where we listen to our client’s ideas and requirements, pulling all of the elements together to design an exclusive set of stationery for the biggest day of your life. We try to avoid repeating designs and encourage our clients to bring their ideas to the table to create something fresh and new.

Establish a budget for your stationery not forgetting to include your ‘on the day’ items which can include guest books, seating plan, place cards, table numbers, post boxes, favours and more. Also, be realistic in terms of what your money can buy. Choices vary greatly from print shop style cards which are available in hundreds of designs to small artisan stationers for wow factor individual design and quality, and everything in between.


Choosing the style:
Shop around, wedding shows are always a good starting point and you get to see the cards up close and personal as well as the people that make them. You can also always order a sample first. At least that way you know what you can expect before you make the final decision. Don’t forget to also order an extra invitation for your memory box!

Allow for plenty of time when booking your stationer, especially if you are having your invites handmade.  We recommend you book your stationer a year in advance and look to send out invites between 6 & 4 months before the wedding.

Final Advice:
Establish a good relationship with your stationer and don’t be afraid to ask questions or give your opinion. Likewise, it’s always worth considering your suppliers professional advice as they have a wealth of experience to share.

And lastly, always follow your heart when it comes to that final decision!

A massive thank you for providing an amazing and unique tent for our wedding. We were both so glad we went with the stretch tent for something a bit different and we couldn’t have been more pleased! All of our guests said how fabulous it looked! A big thank you also to everyone at Morton’s for helping and answering all of our questions in the run up to our big day. I definitely feel I know more about luxury toilets and generators! We would recommend Morton’s to anyone planning a wedding and wanting a tent which is a little different.

We were delighted with the marquee supplied by Morton’s Events.

Our guests were bowled over by the interlinking hexagonal “pods” (as we called them) and all commented on how special it made the wedding breakfast seem. We managed to accomodate 170 guests in plentiful space while making it seem intimate and cosy.

Mortons’ staff were incredibly helpful,flexible and obliging and decorated the marquee beautifully,with fairy lights and a fabulous starcloth ceiling over the dance “pod”.

Together with table decorations designed by my daughter,the effect created was magical,or as one guest put it “breathtaking.”

We would unhesitatingly advise any family contemplating a wedding in a marquee to opt for Morton’s.

Morton’s were professional, accurate, knowledgable and nothing seemed a problem.


The pods lend themselves in any situation and function and looked far better than we had both dreamed of.
Thank you Simon for making our day go without a hitch and for all your hard work and for what seemed like ours was the only function that year!

We had Mortons marques for our daughters wedding. With 200 guests we had 5 pods, a 5×5 square for the bar area and another as the entrance.

The seating for the guests wrapped round the dance floor giving a wonderful view to all and creating a great atmosphere. Mortons were so helpful always at the end of the phone and the whole day and all preparations went to plan. We would definitely use them again.
