Q. We've opted for a wedding palette of bright summer colours and want to incorporate them into our stationery. Do you have any suggestions?

A. Stacie Gould says: Summer flowers are always a lovely way to incorporate bright colours into your wedding stationery and can also link in nicely with your chosen bouquet or floral arrangements. I have many designs that would work perfectly for this particular theme or I can create bespoke stationery by looking at your chosen palette and matching it accordingly.

On-the-day welcome signage will bring a pop of colour and can continue the invitation theme right through to the wedding itself. This feels even more inviting for guests, as the familiar colours and embellishments add a more personal feel. You can even include plenty of bright colours on your table plan allowing it to stand out. Having the same hues on your table numbers and name cards will also help loved ones find their seats easily, as well as adding another splash of summer to your reception. The possibilities are endless!

Q. We're looking for a special reading for our ceremony, but can't find anything that is truly 'us.' What would you suggest?

A. Lizzie Mole says: Why not try a completely original, bespoke rhyming speech or poem? When my customers come to me, I ask them to answer a simple questionnaire requesting details about their lives – funny stories, nicknames, how they met, where they got engaged, and so on. Then I weave these thoughts into a rhyming poem. They're available as an email, so they can be read during the ceremony, although many opt for the foiled, framed and gift-wrapped option, which makes a beautiful art piece and lasting memory of the special day.

A bespoke poem is a truly original gift and when used in place of a speech, can take a huge amount of pressure off of those who've been asked to give an address.
