If you don’t do etiquette in your daily life, there’s really no need to suddenly start doing it in your wedding invitations. Unless you’re the Queen. Have you ever “requested the pleasure of the company of” any of your friends before? No! Because they’d look at you all weird. Now isn’t the time to start… there’s a billion better ways to word your wedding invites!
Gracefully asking your guests to join you on your wedding day is the goal. Your invitations should make your guests smile (not yawn; not skim read to the best bits) and have them looking forward to your big day. Beautiful design goes a long way – and throwing in some personal touches makes any wedding invite unique and special.
I was over the moon when Susannah Halsey got in touch with me over the summer, to share this breathtakingly beautiful wedding inspiration. When it comes to English garden wedding styling ideas, I do love to know that this particular wedding blog shines out from the crowd. Today’s images are some of the very best – they’re from the glorious Gaddesden Estate in Hertfordshire – a relatively new wedding venue, owned by the Halsey family.
