The softest turquoise wash reminiscent of slow rising emerald seas; a palette of lavender, mauve, lilac and rose evocative of the first blooms of spring; or faded tangerine and fuchsia for summer sunsets. Regardless of the mood or theme of your wedding, this artist medium is perfect to create whimsical and romantic stationery that exudes elegant sophistication.
Watercolour stationery works best in a palette of soft pastels as a faint wash in the background of a predominately white invitation. Look for luxe, textured stock complete with hand drawn, personalised font.
If you adore this trend as much as we do, we recommend Mebourne based designer, Siobhan Donoghue, who uses gorgeous watercolours and hand drawn illustrations to create the perfect, bespoke wedding stationery for art lovers! Set a romantic tone for your wedding by sending out mini pieces of colourful art, like her beautiful stationery suite "The Dance,” inspired by the nostalgic romance of the courting stages of a couple’s love story. The emerald and blue tones, whimsical design and luxe Italian paper is perfect for a elegant wedding, paired with some eclectic styling touches like turquoise china & ombre linen.
Carry this trend through to your reception with dip dyed napkins, watercolour menus and even as hand painted artwork on a predominately white wedding cake.
