“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” – Leonardo da Vinci

This quote is really embodied for me by my Fleur collection, a simple but elegant design that has the added bonus of being incredibly versatile. These torn edge 100{5ec4ad94e489c11bcbf76a6087e74b1c9ce69a51125ccea25158f9716b2f8439} cotton paper invitations feature a minimalist monogram and leaf decoration, and are perfect for those who might be looking for something a little more classic and understated for their wedding stationery. However, I have also loved customising Fleur for many couples – its very simplicity makes it a perfect base for a completely unique and personal design.

There are two print options for this collection. Both are printed onto a luxurious, textured, 100{5ec4ad94e489c11bcbf76a6087e74b1c9ce69a51125ccea25158f9716b2f8439} cotton paper. It has a lovely soft texture, and I love how beautifully those hand-torn edges work with the design! However, you can of course choose to have clean, straight edges if you prefer. For a premium finish, I have a letterpress option, which is absolutely gorgeous and comes in either single or two colour inks. You can also opt for digital prints at a lower price point (ideal for smaller budgets or intimate weddings with fewer guests). Another optional extra that I love is handmade cornflower paper envelope liners. The invitations can be hand assembled for you, and each is completed with a hand dyed silk ribbon. As with all of the White Olive designs, you can add on handwritten calligraphy addressed envelopes and wax seals.

When it comes to semi-custom designs, one of my favourite variations is when couples choose to use a bespoke illustration of their venue in place of the leaf monogram. It’s a really special way of highlighting a venue that’s particularly dear to you, or creating a sense of place for your guests for a destination wedding. Another way in which Fleur can be easily adapted to suit a variety of styles is by changing up the colours – the leaf detail can either be printed in the same colour as the rest of the design, or customised to a chosen shade. You could have the whole design printed in gold foil on smooth card, which looks really glam!

Of course, the Fleur collection also comes with elements beyond the invitation, including an A6 Save the Date with envelope, a matching Details card, and an RSVP card with envelope. I can also create matching on the day stationery pieces according to your needs so get in touch to find out how this design can work for your wedding.
