We chat to Annabelle Gallagher, designer at Bellapeach Creative stationery in Cheltenham

Wedding menu designed by Annabelle Gallagher, designer at Bellapeach Creative in Cheltenham Annabelle Gallagher is the designer at Bellapeach Creative, a bespoke wedding stationery company based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. We catch up with her about what will be big in the world of wedding stationery next spring.

Annabelle says: Throughout the last couple of years, there has been a shift away from the more traditional stationery styles to individual themes reflecting the couple's personality and interests, from the save-the-date cards to the invitations, table names and plans, and place names. In 2019 and throughout the early part of 2020, gin-themed weddings were the most popular ones that we created with gin bottles used as table names and mini gin bottles as favours. We expect this trend to continue into 2021, especially with the lockdown rekindling people's love for creating their favourite cocktail or drink at home.

We have also had recent requests for hobbies and interests to be incorporated into wedding stationery, such as a rugby ticket-themed wedding invitation for a rugby-loving English and Irish bride and groom that became a Six Nations-themed invite. Other requests that we have had are to include images or illustrations of the wedding venue or place where the couple got engaged in their stationery choices. Often, they like to supply their drawings so that they feel more involved which is the bonus of having bespoke stationery created because it allows clients to be as involved as they want to be. We have also received requests for sports cars, football and films to be subtly incorporated into designs.

Other themes that we believe will continue to be popular throughout 2021 are floral and botanical designs where couples can have the same flowers on wedding stationery that they plan to have on their tables and in the buttonholes and bouquets.

During recent years, couples have moved away from having traditional order of service stationery with the order of the day boards becoming increasingly popular. It's a clear way to inform guests, and they are more environmentally friendly.

The majority of couples ordering through us want the style that they have chosen to run through their entire wedding. If they have selected a bold and vibrant colour theme, then this will be reflected in their wedding stationery, flowers, decorations and bridesmaid dresses to ensure that every element matches.
