StationEry Trends for 2017 - a guest blog by Eugenie Streather

Hello Eugenie here from Papeterie-Eugenie, a bespoke stationer for Hedsor House. We believe stationery is the first step in 'wowing' guests starting with Save the Dates. We are predicting the below trends to be very popular throughout 2017...

1. Telling your story with illustration

This trend was seen last year with Hedsor's very own Hamish and Rosie Shephard. Imaginative personalised maps are the perfect way to connect with guests and differentiate your special occasion. We anticipate customised maps, magical fairy tales and Mr. & Mrs. silhouettes for 2017.

2. Create your own brand

We tend to memorise all our favourite brands logos by heart, right? Why not let us create an emblem unique to you both! Monogram motifs are often inventive at Hedsor and our hot trend prediction. Use this on everything from your wedding cake to dance floor lighting. What would make it even better? A foiled or letter pressed motif across all stationery including thank you notes after the wedding.

3. Embracing the romance

Always a classic showstopper, even at the most recent Hedsor showcase. Who doesn't love delicate, beautiful and super-luxe? This combination is the marriage of monogram motif with letterpress, blush papers and pearled laser-cut. For the Bride who wants it all!

4. Couture crafting 

This trend is for couples who want truly superior hand-crafting. We are thinking bespoke foiled crest, tissue lined boxes, signature seals and miniature bow-ties... need we say more? Hedsor couples know how to impress. 

5. Elegant metallics

A style favoured by Hedsor clientele. Metallic hints add luxury touches to classic stationery, complementing the magnificent venue. We've created meaningful motifs, family crests or beautiful borders- the list is endless. This year, we predict chic metallic hints of rose gold, dusky blues and muted gold. 

6. Our very own Hedsor!

Finally, look at this beautiful Papeterie Eugenie's mini Hedsor! This Hedsor replica was first created in 2016 and no doubt will  be requested on everything from save the dates to seating plans, no-one can resist its charm.
