3 Reasons Why We’ve Introduced Handmade Paper

When it comes to planning your dream wedding, every detail matters. From the venue to the decor, you want everything to reflect your unique style and create a memorable experience for both you and your guests. One crucial aspect of setting the tone for your special day is choosing the perfect wedding invitations. While there are countless options available, handmade paper wedding invitations offer a truly exceptional touch that sets them apart from the rest. Here are three reasons why you need to consider this exquisite paper choice for your luxury wedding stationery.

1. Unparalleled Elegance and Luxury

Handmade paper is synonymous with elegance and luxury. Our paper of choice is a premium 300gsm weight combined with a gorgeous textured hammered finish that exudes a sense of sophistication and refinement; whilst the deckled edges make each piece unique. I love to pair handmade paper with stunning calligraphy and raw edged silk ribbon, for that added touch of romance – the dreamiest, prettiest of combinations. Wax seals look fantastic too.

2. To Have and To Hold: The Tactile Experience

Handmade paper wedding invitations provide a tactile experience that is simply unmatched. As your guests hold these invitations in their hands, they’ll feel the luxurious texture and weight of the paper, elevating the anticipation and excitement for your special day. In a world that’s increasingly digital, we all still love receiving real post (so long as it isn’t a bill!) and even more so when it’s a truly beautiful piece. You can see from these pictures just how gorgeous that cotton-y texture is!

3. A Commitment to Sustainability

Our handmade paper of choice is made from recycled cotton rag, making them a more sustainable alternative to traditional paper options, reducing the demand for wood-based products and helping preserve our precious forests*. By choosing handmade paper, you showcase your values and inspire others to consider sustainable choices as well. Eco-friendly without compromising on style.

So there we have it. Countless couples have requested handmade paper for their wedding stationery over the past few months, so I just had to introduce it! Create an unforgettable impression on your guests from the very beginning and choose handmade paper for your wedding invitations.

*Side note: Even with my standard paper options, I take great care to source paper as responsibly as I can. All of the papers available for printing with Dwynwen are FSC certified, and recycled papers are available on request.
