Can you give us an overview Tree of Hearts and tell us what it offers to couples?
The team say: The business was launched in 2012 by Lisa Forde. We offer personalised wedding stationery, along with a free proof service that allows customers to check their orders before anything gets printed. Many of our designs feature a customisable colour palette and different style options, helping every couple plan their day to perfection.
In your opinion, why is stationery such an important element of a wedding and how can it help to enhance the build-up and the big day itself?
Wedding invitations and save the dates are a guest’s first glimpse at the wedding theme, so it’s important to set the right tone straight away. As you continue to plan the day, you can coordinate your celebration by keeping your stationery consistent in colour, style, and theme. It really helps to pull the day together.
Throughout the day, stationery can be used to guide guests, provide important details, and provide decoration. It’s the perfect mix of beautiful and practical. That’s why we believe it’s so important to get it right!
How would you describe the style of the stationery that Tree of Hearts offer?
At Tree of Hearts, we cater for couples of every taste. That’s why we offer many different styles, helping everyone find the right collection for their own unique day. But whatever the theme, we always design our stationery to look elegant, fresh, and subtle.
What are your most popular designs currently?
Our new tri fold wedding invitation suites have been a huge hit recently, particularly our White Country Bouquet and Navy Jewel Flowers collections. Foil invitations, such as Je t’aime and Formal Monogram, have also been popular with couples looking for on-trend designs.
How far in advance of the wedding would you advise couples to source their stationery?
We recommend that you start looking as soon as possible. Many couples order their wedding invitation samples at least a year in advance of their special day. This gives you plenty of time to compare the quality of different stationers’ products, as well as their customer service.
What elements of the wedding would you advise couples to consider when picking their stationery and where should they look for inspiration?
Inspiration can come from so many different places. You might find it in the country where you first went on holiday together, your favourite activities as a couple, or through books and movies. If you’re struggling, there are lots of mood boards, both online and in magazines, that could spark ideas.
When it comes to picking the stationery, we recommend you take your overall theme into consideration and find a design that matches. You should also consider your venue, particularly for the reception stationery; think about how the table plan, place cards, and other accessories can be used to accentuate the location’s décor.
Tree of Hearts offer various ways that couples can personalise their wedding stationery designs, can you tell us more about such options?
In addition to letting you personalise the wording, most of our collections allow you to choose your own colours – perfect for matching the design to the wedding colour scheme.
Other products offer a range of styles. For instance, our invitation range features open-out cards, postcards, suites with bellybands, pocket folds, and tri folds.
Because we create all our artwork in-house, our team can also tweak existing designs to further suit your wedding. Our proof service gives you the chance to check and amend your order before it gets printed, giving you peace of mind.
Can couples order material samples and previews of stationery products before placing their final order?
We offer a free wedding invitation sample service. Every customer can order up to two invitations of their choice. We’re confident that our quality materials speak for themselves!
How do couples go about ordering their stationery through Tree of Hearts?
Our easy-to-use website makes it so easy to place your order. All you have to do is enter your wording and we’ll do the rest. You can also place an order and email us your wording at a later date, making it convenient if you haven’t finalised the details yet.
Our team is also on-hand to give advice should you need it, so there’s never any need to stress if you have questions. If you need your stationery urgently, you can also contact us and we’ll do our best to help.
Can you share your three top tips for couples when choosing their wedding invites?
First, order samples so you can see and feel the quality of the card before you purchase.
Second, shop around until you find a design you love – you might feel pressured to make a quick decision since there is so much to do, but this is a choice you should make with love!
Third, check to see if the stationer offers matching products that coordinate with your invitations. This will help you keep the theme consistent throughout all your wedding stationery, from ceremony to reception.
What is the feedback like from wedding couples who use Tree of Hearts?
We’re very proud to say that Tree of Hearts has consistent four-to-five-star reviews. As a small company, feedback is incredibly important to us, so we always welcome ideas for how we can improve!
What trends are you spotting in stationery at the moment?
Wedding trends evolve every year, so we always make sure to create new designs for popular themes. 2020 promises lots of jewel tone colour schemes, while the Pantone Colour of the Year, Classic Blue, will doubtless be another big favourite. Lush botanical patterns are also going to be huge, with a big focus on cacti and succulent designs.
What sets Tree of Hearts apart from other stationery companies?
Tree of Hearts provides a huge range of designs targeting different themes, as well as further personalisation options within those styles. We also offer unique products you can’t get anywhere else, like our die-cut tokens, confetti, and tags, as well as pocket folds printed with your chosen design and wording. Furthermore, as a small team, we can offer a much more tailored customer service experience to every couple.
