ADVENTURE IN COLOUR WITH TEXTILE DESIGNER CAMILLA FRANCES

WEDDING INVITATION IDEAS: CAMILLA FRANCES In Melbourne, we have a tendency to wear black. A lot of black. There’s one particularly amazing textile designer though, that will have you celebrating colour like you never knew you could. She’ll make you scream, “I WAS BORN FOR COLOUR!” Below are some wedding invitation ideas:


Yep, that’s right folks. Camilla Frances Prints is a London-based designer who has designed prints for a hearty handful of local Australian designers including Sportsgirl, Life with Bird and Wayne Cooper. She uses a wide range of techniques, from drawing, painting, computer manipulation, screen-printing, hand dying and collage to create original artworks for textiles. Shining through her work is a love for feminine florals, vintage, black and white, fun paisleys, strong geometrics, luxurious lace, trendsetting tribals and novelty conversational designs.

HOW TO ASK FOR MONEY AT YOUR WEDDING

Trying to subtly let your guests know that you’d prefer money for your wedding gift is always a tricky thing. Your wedding invitations are where you’ll be dropping this hint and to do this many couples will use a ‘wishing well’ poem. Take a moment to think back on when you’ve read a ‘wishing well’ poem in a wedding invitation: You’ve just received an envelope with your name handwritten across the top. Inside, a beautiful, wedding invitation from your friend Ben and his lovely fiancée Molly. You look through the papers: the RSVP card and its cute little envelope, the spot where they, once again, hand wrote your name just for you. And then: Now we are to be Mr & Mrs
We don’t need a wedding list of dishes
We have two kettles, two toasters, two microwaves
We require a house for which we have to save.
If you would like to give us a gift,
A cheque or vouchers would give us a lift
We like to think of it as our ‘Wishing Well’
Which will be filled with your love, we can tell.
You groan, you roll …

10 BEACH WEDDING THEME INVITATIONS TO LOVE

Beach wedding theme invitations can be hard to love. If there aren’t starfish in every corner, there will be too much blue and yellow. There can also be that blurring between Tropicana, nautical, even under the sea. Where’s the line? We think that the key to Beach Wedding Themed Invitations is maintaining that relaxed tone you want for your wedding. Let those lines blur and don’t be afraid to stick to your guns on the things that you really, really like. If that means that there has to be star fish and swathes of blue, then make sure they’re done well. We’ve found a couple that find the perfect balance, although we’ve also found some beach themed things that made us want to cringe.
