The role of Dads on their daughters' wedding day was immortalised by Steve Martin in the 1991 movie, Father of the Bride, when he portrayed overprotective father George Banks, and the conflicting emotions he experienced in 'giving his little girl away'.

According to the number one wedding planning gurus in Australia, Wedded Wonderland, the next big thing in invitations is acrylic. They all agree ( as do we ) - acrylic is everything. Unlike the usual card or paper invitations, acrylic is hard-wearing, luxurious and versatile, coming in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours.
So, why is acrylic so unique and what is it?
Acrylic is a piece of plastic also known as Perspex. The 3mm sheet of acrylic is laser cut and engraved by our production team to create a custom and unique invitation design. Acrylic is lightweight and available in a range of terrific colours such as Black, Mirror Gold, Mirror Silver, Clear and Frosted.
Christmas is a time for gift giving for many businesses and choosing the right gift for your staff, business partner, associates or customers is very important. Personalisation is a huge topic right now. A large percentage of the buying experience is based on how the customer or client is treated. In an age where we are constantly connected, we need to touch base directly with the customer and a gift this Christmas that is truly thoughtful and personalised just for them.
Personalised gifts work really well and they also ensure your business maintains a personal identity and a high level of customer satisfaction. The familiarity and knowledge that comes with gifts that are personalised brings customers back to your store, business and/or service.

Working in the wedding industry I am constantly asked by couples which type of invitation I would recommend for them. Below I help to cut through the misinformation and provide you with all my knowledge and experience.
Invitations can broadly fit into six categories:
1. DIY Invitations
2. Electronic Invitations
3. Professionally made Paper Invitations
You are newly engaged! (Congratulations by the way!) But now what?
You have so many things to start thinking about, not to mention the money you have to spend in the coming months and years. We're here to help!
Our designers at Personalised Favours are not only passionate about creating something unique for each customer, but sharing their insights and secrets for choosing the perfect wedding invitation.
We had a chat to Emma, our graphic designer, about some tips & trends to create the perfect invitation that guests will remember for years to come.
Emma believes it is important to start thinking about a theme for your wedding or even a colour scheme early on. "Think of a theme you like, for example a cocktail style Soiree. Do some research into this style. Blacks and creams spring to mind, so use those colours and plan an elegant/ bold style for your invites."
The holiday season is about elaborate ornamentation, the coming together of family and friends, cheer and the spirit of togetherness. These beautiful meanings can be incorporated in your special day with personalised favours and decorations. Adding a little Christmas cheer to your wedding theme will make it all that more exciting and an even bigger celebration for all your guests. Let the champagne pour and the music play! I have got some great ideas to put a little festive spin on your day. Change up your traditional bouquet and have a spray of pine cones and baby's breath bush or add a dash of red and green foliage.
