Friend of the wedding blog Serif got in touch last week to tell Brides Up North all about  their rather clever (or some might say crafty?) Craft Artist Wedding Day Stationery Kit.  Using their easy to operate software, you can create, customise and print your own stationery from home using professionally-designed templates and graphics.  So now you brides on a budget can create your own wedding stationery, whether you are going for a vintage or modern look (and any style in between!).  And guess what…?

    We have the tiniest budget for our beachside wedding. EVERYTHING is handmade. Burlap table runners. Small centrepieces. Hanging lanterns. Photobooth. Invitations will be by hand too if I don’t win!

    We are having a wedding that rocks!! Including making VIP pass invites for the guests and making rock stick favours!! We are making the table centrepieces ourselves somehow with drumsticks involved somewhere as my partner is a drummer!!

    What a fab opportunity to make wedding stationary from your own home that looks soo professional. Working to a budget is proving hard but worth while when u can use something as brillant as this to add those extra touches!!!

    What a good idea!
    We are making everything.
    I have started on the bunting, and having a go at knocking up a veil.
    I’m working on the cake topper out of wire which is twisted around to make a tree, with green beads as the leaves.
    We’re having our reception on a farm so I am making lots of wooden signs so guest know exactly where to go.
    I’m not so handy with the paper side of things so this looks perfect!

    I’ve been struggling along for MONTHS in MS Publisher trying to create our stationary. I’m no tech whizz kid so there have been tears and tantrums. This would solve ALL my problems in one go!

    That software would be very helpful. We made our own save the date magnets and would be helpful to have some good software to help with invites!

    Also planning to make all the decorations, including bunting (miles of it I think) and am currently planning to make the wedding cake myself.

    Bunting & table decorations are my homemade contributions to our wedding!

    Makes me want to get married all over again (to the same person!). I did almost everything for my wedding except the invites – too busy making dresses, flowers etc. But this would have been great. I use Serif software for my business stationery and logos and it’s brilliant, so easy to use.

    This software looks amazing! What a perfect way to put your own personal stamp on your wedding – it looks so professional – looks like you’ve spend £100s! And the fact that you can use it for all your decorations, not just invites, is genius! x
