Spotlight on Stationery features + introducing Make Loops

Happy Sunday afternoon everyone! What are you up to… playing out? Shopping? I’m on a little adventure and will be back at English Wedding Blog HQ shortly… but I have time for a quick blog feature and I think you’ll like this! It’s all new and shiny – very shiny 🙂

Spotlight on Stationery – on the English Wedding Blog

I really want to start sharing more ideas with you on the blog, for styling ideas with flowers, stationery, cakes and accessories. I’ve asked suppliers on my facebook page to share some of their best bits with me, and so far I have some fabulous wedding invitations and bouquet ideas to publish over the next few weeks. I think you’ll love them and hopefully find your perfect suppliers via the English Wedding Blog too!

Today as I introduce the series of wedding invitation features – which will be called Spotlight on Stationery – I thought I’d tell you all about Make Loops. Designer Hannah makes badges and cards for modern brides and grooms, and they’re fab.

I especially love Hannah’s badges for hen nights, and the story behind her designs. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Introducing Make Loops wedding stationery on Etsy

“I started an Etsy shop selling hen night badges just over a year ago. It all started whilst planning my sister’s hen night. I despaired at the tacky range of badges and accessories on offer and wanted her to have a sophisticated day and evening. I also found several bars in London wouldn’t admit hens if they were dressing up or wearing hen night paraphernalia.

With a background in design I set about creating my own badges for us all to wear. I wanted them to be modern but low key enough for venues to accept them. They were a hit and after blogging about them I had several enquiries and opened my shop.

My shop now sells a range of badges, bags and stickers in several colours as well as hen night cards and wedding cards all featuring quirky badges for the recipients to wear.

My latest badge range is designed with spring/summer hen parties in mind. A pale pink and duck egg blue badge is perfect for afternoon teas, crafty get togethers and weekends in the sun.

My latest card is a gift for bridesmaids. A simple thank you card with a badge. I hope the younger bridesmaids will love wearing their bright pink badge with pride throughout the evening on the dancefloor.
