Seed paper wedding stationery so that your love continues to grow
This past year was definitely not an easy one for anybody, but there were also some good things that came out of it. From the unforgettable images with clear water in Venice’s canals and dolphins playing around, during lockdown. The improvements in air quality, due to the diminished traffic. The fact that more and more companies implemented the work from home option and they are willing to keep this option even after the pandemic. The fact that we started to plan our meals better in order to avoid multiple runs to the supermarket, and we ended up not throwing away so much food anymore. There are so many good things that we can draw from this awful pandemic, we just have to look and acknowledge them.
The same thing can be said regarding the wedding industry after all. Because of the restrictions in terms of number of guests and mobility, the small number of weddings that did managed to go through were more thoughtful, more purposeful, and more eco-friendly in the end. 2020 was the year of elopements and small, intimate weddings, and I honestly think 2021 will be the same. But eloping, or having an intimate wedding just with your family and close friends, doesn’t mean you have to neglect the small details. On the contrary, I think for these weddings you have the opportunity to put more attention into the small details, take the time to choose vendors you truly resonate with, choose more purposeful materials and decorations for your big day, try and be more eco-conscious in the end.
When it comes to your wedding stationery, there are so many options for working with eco-friendly materials. I know, for some, eco-friendly would mean “paper free”, but actually there are so many ways of having an eco-conscious wedding stationery while still using paper. For example, you can use recycled paper, or cotton paper, or handmade paper that is made using recycled paper and cotton fibers, or even seed paper that can be planted afterwards. Also, an important aspect is to try and limit the use of paper throughout your suite by making sure each and every piece is carefully thought of and can serve multiple purposes if possible. For example, you can limit the number of cards used for your suite by creating a wedding website where you can share the details and manage the RSVPs through .
The suite I’m going to share today was made for an intimate wedding planned for Maria and Javier by Hojas D’Amour that specializes in eco-friendly weddings here in South of Spain and she put together all the amazing vendors that share the same values when it comes to the respect and care for the environment.
The invitation suite and all the day of stationery were digitally printed on seed paper, that could later on be planted by the guests to grow beautiful wildflowers to remind them of this gorgeous event. The invitation card was wrapped in handmade paper with flower inserts and secured with wax seals decorated with real dried pampa grass stems and the vow books were embellished with naturally died silk ribbons made locally, here in South of Spain, by lovely @pomegranatecolours.
