About Me

North West, United Kingdom
I am keen crafter, with a particular fondness for pearls and all things shiny and a dream that one day I might just own that little shop I've always wanted to run. I am forever making something whether it's some cards, jewellery or something knitted... the devil makes work for idle hands, but mine are rarely idle!

Buying Handmade Wedding Stationery

Many brides love the look of handmade stationery, but lack either the time or craft skills to embark on making their own wedding stationery. So if the idea of getting crafty yourself fills you with dread, or you simply don't have the time, the perfect alternative is to buy handmade - all the charm of a handcrafted invitation without the hassle of wrestling with card, glitter and glue.

There are a whole host of creative people out there catering to the wedding stationery market. Folksy boasts a 'Wedding' section and amongst all the handmade jewellery, there are several crafty bods selling handmade wedding stationery.

Here are two sellers I've found on Folksy:

Alternatively, to give you some creative control and perhaps save some money, you could purchase handmade cards that are blank inside and create your own insert with the invitation details. I sell handmade cards in my Foksy shop that are without inserts, giving people the opportunity to create their own invitations for special occassions.

Before you invest your money in the whole stationery range, it is worth seeing some samples to check the quality and design. As handmade items are generally made to order, if you want a design changing in some way, ask. The beauty of handmade is that it can be change and made to be even more unique.
