There’s something pretty wonderful about a wedding or event with the relaxed, informal and fun atmosphere as inspired by the classic English country fete! If your wedding or celebration is taking place in a barn, marquee, on a farm, or anywhere with a large outdoor space, this may be a great style to consider for the big day. Think long trellis tables, lots of floral fabrics, bunting, burlap, mismatched vintage china and wild, overflowing flowers. If you’re a creative bride (or just up for a challenge), there are loads of great DIY projects you can get stuck into, right from the favours to the flower arrangements. This is also a great theme for those on a limited budget as there are many inexpensive ideas you can incorporate which look so pretty and add to the breezily beautiful feel of your day.
Our rustic and relaxed ‘Country Fete’ wedding stationery works perfectly with this theme, featuring pretty floral fabrics, canvas and burlap with bunting, hearts and hand-sewn details… This cute and quirky invitation suite will set the tone of your big day beautifully, giving guests that all important first glimpse of the fun, love and happiness they can expect to share with you on your wedding day:
The lovely thing about this kind of wedding or event styling, is that you don't need to worry too much about everything matching - you can combine lots of different patterns, colours and textures and it will all add to the relaxed atmosphere you're creating. We love these mismatched vintage bridesmaid dresses for a country fete inspired celebration:
Our Country Fete stationery collection has everything you'll need including the wedding invitations, oodles of fun reception stationery and not forgetting the thank you cards to send out during your first few weeks of being a Mr & Mrs. You can customise all the designs yourself & see exactly how pretty they'll look with your choice of wording, and this range is perfect for all you DIY brides, as everything's available as print-your-own. If you'd rather sit back and relax, we'll be more than happy to handle all the printing for you, and we even offer free shipping which is within a few working days of ordering.
Don't miss the free printable wedding place cards (or tags) and escort cards in this collection - we hope you'll enjoy using them - so many brides have told us how they loved creating place settings and seating plans with the designs, and that the guests loved taking them home as a memento of the big day.
Enjoy your planning and do let us know if there's anything we can do - we'd be honoured to be a part of your special day!
