Save your guests, quite literally, a ton of 5p's...


If you ask me, this is quite possibly the most useful favour you could give your guests at the moment. 

Gorgeous to look at, mega handy and with the superhero ability to save your friends and family (approx) £1 million per year in 5p coins - THE CANVAS LOVE BAG!

We been in love with these little beauties for some time now. We introduced them to our range back in 2011 but they couldn't fight off the pull of mighty tea towel and they've lived in their shadow ever since (sob). But wait, they've been sitting in the wings patiently and now it is the Canvas Love Bag's time to shine!

We think that these bags work best as favours or save the dates 
(and would compliment a tea towel invitation just perfectly)


The Love Bags are available in all of our designs so if you'd like to see an example in your favourite design, want more info on pricing or need anything else then just email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk or to see our full tea towel range take a look here.

Choose any three artworks for £85!



Hello everybody. It's been a while, sorry about that, we've moved! WAH! But we're all sorted now (except for the fact that I can't find any of my socks and even more tragically, my eyeshadows. It's been a month... I am slightly panicked. Anyway...)

Now we're all settled... Let's do this AGAIN!

So, here's the deal... when ordering your wedding tea towels, choose from any three supporting artworks for £85. You can choose from evening invitations, RSVPs, Information, Thank you or Save the date.

Then just let me know the wording, we'll create the artwork for you and the second you're happy with them, I will send over a print ready file which you can then either print yourself or simply forward it straight on to your own professional printer. It's amazingly simple!

Take a look at all our designs here. Or if you want to talk things through then email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk. I love to talk weddings so get in touch!

Speak soon
Karen xx


*Usual price £35 each. Offer only available for a limited time.

Possibly my favourite wedding tea towel photo of all time...




To me, this photo is totally magical and it will remind me every time 
I look at it, why Ben & I LOVE what we do so much. 

Just to have one teeny tiny part in something so special makes us one of the luckiest business out there. Look at the beautiful bride and the emotion on her face, and then stop and take a look at the emotion on her Dads face as well. It's a truly precious moment.

I can't thank the lovely Mel enough for sharing these with us. 


For more information on our wedding tea towel invitations or favours go to www.weddingteatowels.co.uk or email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk

Big cuddles

Plan the Cutest Modern Vintage Wedding EVER!


This week we're lucky to have a guest piece from the lovely @emilycleaton85.


Are you dreaming of arranging a modern vintage wedding? It is becoming increasingly popular, as many couples are adding vintage feel to their modern weddings. Crystal chandeliers, jewel coloured attire, homemade favours, and white lace fabrics are just a few things that can help you to plan a vintage wedding with a modern twist.
Picking an old-fashioned theme to tie the knot will surely make your big day memorable and elegant. 1920’s theme and rock 'n 'roll 50's style are some of the most popular wedding themes that are perfect for couples who fancy a classy affair.
If this sounds exciting to you, we are delighted to be bringing you this guide. Plan the most perfect modern day vintage wedding, by following our convenient and easy list. 

Location Matters 
A wedding location can make a huge difference to the theme, flow, and delight of the day. Long-established churches, classy stately rooms, and wedding banquet halls are some of the wedding venues that can help you to add a traditional look to your big day. Couples who are looking for a vintage wedding venue in England can browse the list at thecitycollection.org. But, if you already have a venue in mind, then you can relax and enquire it for bookings. Be flexible in choosing the wedding date, as this will help you to get good package deals and cheaper rates.

Select the Perfect Dress
The thought of organizing a modern vintage wedding is to make the most of particular things from the past and highlighting it with a modern twist. It is not essential to splurge thousands of pounds on an exclusive traditional wedding gown. There are number of wedding designers that can design a handmade wedding dress for you at a highly reasonable price. Suzanne Neville, Caroline Castigliano, and Jenny Packham are some of the names that are at the forefront of British Design. You can visit the official sites of these designers to view the latest collection of wedding gowns.

Hello Bridesmaids! 
Where ‘modern’ stands for new-fashioned or stylish, ‘vintage’ denotes something from the past of excellence (especially something demonstrating the best of its kind). Your bridesmaids can wear bold colours that can add drama to your vintage gala. Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Olivia de Havilland are some of the inspiration divas that you can follow. Watch their hairstyles, makeup, and costumes to get the perfect 1920’s look.

Fantastic Favours 
Why not say good bye to your guests with some customized favours that they will love. These wedding favours will not only add a little bit of originality to the event, but also make your guests smile. Sweet treat favours, stamped spoons, and tea towels are some of the ideas that you can consider. One of my colleagues had gifted tea towels to his guests on the big day. He hired the service of weddingteatowels.co.uk, and they created the most memorable things about his wedding. 

Donning Decors
Old wooden wine barrels, wooden platters, and ivory wedding post boxes spread a nice glow and channel an elegant feel. A little creativity can help you to give your venue a complete different look. To decorate the side tables, you can use crystal chandeliers, vintage candleholders, and Hessian fabrics. An elegant embellishment or even a retro typewriter for people to write their own personal message is also a good idea for your modern vintage wedding. If you are a photo fanatic, then you can also consider a Polaroid camera that are getting so fashionable these days. The key to decorate your wedding venue is that there are fixed no rules, catch your ideas from web and put your own charm.  

Follow Customs and Traditions
For an elegant, vintage wedding, don’t forget to incorporate heartfelt traditions. For instance, you and your spouse should stay away from seeing each other before the official wedding celebration. Ask your father or grandfather to walk you down the aisle and give you away. The last one is to toss the wedding bouquet during the function. It is believed that the single woman to catch the bouquet would be the first to get married hence forth. 
These modern vintage wedding ideas will assist you in creating a right mood for the event. Follow these tips to plan your dream wedding.

What does RSVP even stand for?

A quick Google later...

  1. Répondez s'il vous plaît
  2. In the context of social invitations, RSVP is a request for a response from the invited person or people. It is an initialism derived from the French phrase Répondez s'il vous plaît, literally "Reply if you please" or "Please reply".

    Oh yeah, we knew that. 
    Now, one of the great things about the Wedding tea Towel is how it inspires guests to come up with creative ways to hit you back with their RSVP, normally this can feel like a bit of a chore, but once they get an Original Wedding Tea Towel, their mind is blown, and anything could happen. Here's a few of our favourites.

Wedding Tea Towel, Colour me GOOD!


Have you seen our Design Page?  People love it, because it lets you flick through the available options on each design, and see what it looks like in each colour?

So you could mix the colours up across a series of Invitations, Evening Invites, Save the Dates and RSVP cards, imagine the world of possibilities, but we know you have a theme, you have a single colour running through everything on your big day, and your invitations need to work into this.

If the colour isn't here that you're looking for then, let's talk, we do add more colours, make 2/3/4 colour designs or match from a swatch of a square you snipped out of your hubby-to-be's tie. It's no big deal.

Wedding Trends 2016



For the last few years we've seen shifts in the things people want on their Wedding Tea Towels, and we're starting to look to the far off distant land of Summer 2016 and get our designs in place for what might be the Wedding Trends of the future.

Now, even though 2016 sounds like a long way off, it's unlikely that even then people will be getting married on the moon in Tinfoil dresses, no, we predict something much subtler. Here's 5 key trends we'll be looking at in our new tea towel designs over the next few months.


A Return to Tradition

OK, we admit there's no ancient tradition of sending Tea Towels as your invitation, when we invented it back in 2009, pretty much everyone thought we were stupid, and it turns out they were half right, we are stupid, but the WTT apparently is not.

A return to tradition for us might be to look are formalising the designs a little bit, and looking at traditional typography and how we can bring that into the design.

Light blue Hues

We're always looking at our colour pallet, and we can offer really any colour you want, just ask, but 2016 looks like it might be moving towards pastels and subtle tones.

We totally predicted this back in 2010, and already have a light blue in the cannon, it's called 'Sky Blue' yay us!

Feathers

Feathers on wedding dresses are looking like a big trend for 2016. This is the kind of thing we like to be aware of, as sometimes this can form a theme around your day, and what better way to introduce a theme to your guests than on your Wedding Invitation or Save The Dates.

We'll look at incorporating this into the design, and rest assured, no birds will be harmed in the designs of our Wedding Tea Towels.

Floaty Watercolour Feels

Watercolour is a difficult look to pull off on Screen Printed tea towels, but this is something that could influence the designs, to move towards a softer, more abstract look. We think this kind of tonal, artistic style is going to play well in 2016.

A Simpler Time

Your big day so you can be as fussy as you like, we'll cater to your needs, but the blogs we've been reading are starting to hint at a shift towards a simpler, less stressful day, that's still amazing, but doesn't wipe everyone out before they get there.

We're here to take all the stress around your invitation away, we can help with colour decisions, and design choices, as well as being experts at the wording, so let us deal with all of that for you.


--


Anyway, they're our thoughts from the blogs we read about 2016, we'd love to know what you'd like to see on a Wedding Tea Towel for your invitation, so drop us your ideas in the comments section, or if they're a bit secret at the minute, then email karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk and we can talk about your design.

The Personal Touch




Sometimes people ask us why you can't order directly from weddingteatowels.co.uk, so let me tell you why.

We thought about it, we really did but we decided that ordering your Wedding Invitations is a bit different to ordering a ream of paper from Staples, so we wanted to give you more of a personal touch.

We want to get to know a bit about you, and your wedding, and make sure that you get everything you need. Wedding Tea Towels is all about Karen's personal service, about making sure we play our small part in making your day as amazing as we can make it.

But don't take our word for it, here's some of our hundreds of happy customers: http://www.weddingteatowels.co.uk/happy-couples
