My third little box of paper goodies this month came from the lovely team at Manchester’s rather fabulous Norma & Dorothy, an independent wedding stationery design business which has been delighting brides and grooms for just one year… but looks set to take the world by storm.
I was thrilled to receive some wonderful samples from Grace and her team at Norma & Dorothy, and blown away by the attention to detail of their wedding stationery. The stitching and finishing of every piece is exquisite.
Wedding stationery review: Norma & Dorothy
Designer: Grace is the founder of Norma & Dorothy, and works with a small team from their Manchester studio to create pretty invitations for modern couples. Meet them and see them at work (there’s a video!) here: Meet the team at Norma & Dorothy
Style: Expertly handcrafted wedding invitations and stationery with the prettiest aesthetic and a rustic twist
For the couple who: cherish attention to detail. Norma & Dorothy will delight you every step of the way, with beautifully made wedding stationery delivered in the prettiest packages!
Finish & quality: Gorgeous paper stocks, creative finishing and perfect print is only the beginning: it’s the hand finishing which makes Norma & Dorothy stand apart from the crowd. Superb!
Range: There are currently 41 designs to choose from, all with kraft envelopes and colourful, fun designs. My favourites are the booklet invitations, I also love the chalkboard styles, floral designs and funky stripes.
From the designer:
“Our customers place a great deal of trust in our brand; their wedding day is the most important day of their lives and every detail needs to be perfect. This trust inspires us to finish each order to the best of our ability. We choose the highest quality paper stock we can find, print our products using industry-leading printing presses and hand-finish each order in house. Every stage of our making process, whether it’s choosing the right glue or hand-tying the perfect knot, has been carefully planned and improved with the years of crafting experience behind us.
Hand-finishing a customer’s order is at the heart of our company, and we pride ourselves on the ability to create something beautiful by hand. Each member of our making team has spent years studying a craft to degree level, whether its textile crafts, embroidery or paper making, our team know how to perfect a hand-finished product.”
