With its vibrant warm climate and picturesque blue skies, Brisbane boasts an array of stunning wedding venues with an emphasis on the outdoors. Matching your wedding invitations to the venue requires thought and a little creativity – wedding cards set the stage for your wedding and gives guests a feel for the day before it arrives. Among the offerings are classic, traditional venues and vibrant modern icons – all deserving of a stylised introduction with unique, quality paper goods.

EVE’S ON THE RIVER

In Newstead on the banks of the Brisbane River, Eve’s on the River offers sophistication and a stunning waterfront backdrop for your cocktail or sit-down wedding. This restaurant boasts a floor-to-ceiling glass enclosed veranda for the reception and a manicured lawn for the ceremony – a fusion of casual elegance amidst crafted canapés and river breezes.
Matching your stationery to this venue can go a couple of ways. For an intimate wedding with a cocktail reception choose a stylish contemporary invitation. The Newstead/Teneriffe area is renowned for its upscale, modern vibe so opt for a clean font, perhaps with classic or cursive accents, to reflect the chic environment. Those holding a sit-down dinner reception may prefer traditional, minimalist stationery with thick matte cream cards, script fonts and customary language; however don’t be afraid to add a contemporary element, such as a bold colour accent, for a little edge.

For those dreaming of a romantic winery wedding, Ocean View is just a short drive from Brisbane’s CBD. Hold the ceremony amongst the vineyards or under the gazebo by the lake, then enjoy stunning views from your reception venue with its expanses of glass and stylish decor. Be sure to incorporate colour into your stationery to reflect the natural surroundings – think crimson, pinks, gold and burnt orange, or earthy tones and shades of forest green. Be as creative as you like with custom fonts and unique presentation – this is a modern venue with an emphasis on romance.
