Q We want to design our wedding stationery, can you help?
A Lauren Daisy says: Going bespoke and telling a story through your wedding stationery is something I strive for in my business. I believe that your wedding should represent you both as an individual and as a couple. A great way to do this is to set the tone with your stationery showing your bespoke design and hinting to your guests about what's to come. This isn't a process that can happen overnight, I recommended that once you have booked your venue and secured the date, you should then book your stationery supplier. I work with my couples more than four to eight weeks in advance to complete a bespoke stationery suite.

This includes:
- A zoom call or a meet-up to discuss ideas and thoughts and create a mood board.
- My designing time as I hand-draw all my illustrations on my iPad.
- Couples will then have the opportunity to make any changes to the text, font or even the design itself.
- Once the couple is happy, their design will go to print.
- I'll receive the print items back and add finishing touches to them, this may be a wax seal, ribbon or simply assembling them
