Create a sense of romance and style with over the top opulence. Think ornate with candelabras, feathers and cameos and use a candy pastel colour palette coupled with gold and pewter metallics. Serve macaroons and deliciously indulgent treats. Full bridal gowns and period boot shoes are perfect for this style and hand painted fans and masks only add to the drama. Set the tone for your decadent wedding with our Cameo Wedding Stationery Suite.

Winter is a cold season with crisp mornings, bare trees and with any luck snow on the ground. Use it to your advantage and let the icy colors of winter set the tone for your celebration with cool blues, silvers and snow whites. Add delicate lace, white feathers, flowers and candles to create a heavenly setting. Offer guests a warming coffee or hot chocolate served with delicious doughnuts. Use pine cones as place card holders and bare tree branches to decorate tables.
