Italian Wedding Ideas
- Gemma and Andrew -


Looking for Italian Wedding Ideas? I created the perfect Italian wedding stationery for Gemma and Andrews wedding in Lake Orta including a luggage tag save the date and beautiful lilac wedding passport.

Gemma had some great Italian Wedding Ideas as she had already done a lot of her own research. She first came to me wanting to create a Unique Save the Date Luggage Tag and matching Passport Invitation. Eventually an entire matching set of destination wedding stationery was created including Postcards and Information Cards for their UK reception and beautiful Thank You cards which included some of their gorgeous wedding photos.

Save the Date

Although it's not customary to request an RSVP to a Save the Date, Gemma and Andrews guests were lucky enough to be having their transport to Italy arranged for them so it was vital they included an RSVP to ensure they could get an idea of who could make it to the celebration.

I designed a folded Luggage Tag with a tear off section which could be mailed back with the relevant info. Gemma needed to know the date they would like to travel as well as their closest airport. The Luggage Tag was finished off with a white ribbon and mailed out to guests.

Italian Passport Invitations

Next came the wedding Passport and because of the nature of their wedding abroad Gemma and Andrew wanted to include some extra information for their guests about the gorgeous Lake Orta location. An 8 sided passport was chosen and Gemma supplied all the text for me. She included information about Hotels they wanted to recommend as well as details about the ceremony itself. Gemma also found this great poem to include about Gifts...


We are sending out this invitation,
And hope you will join our celebration.

If to send a gift is your intention,
In modesty we would like to mention,

We have already got a kettle and a toaster,
Crockery, dinner mats and coasters,

So rather than something we have already got,
Please give us money for our saving pot.

But, most importantly, we request,
That you turn up as our wedding guest.


I think it's a great example of how to word the difficult subject of Wedding Gift Lists. For more examples of how to bring up the subject of Gifts in your invitations read more examples here.

The next item I worked on with Gemma and Andrew were the invitations for their UK wedding reception. A postcard was perfect and certainly in keeping with their Italian Wedding Ideas. I designed it to look like it was from their wedding location in Lake Orta, it continued the theme beautifully. Gemma also wanted to include a list of local accommodation as well as taxi numbers so these were added to a separate double sided information card and included along with the invite. I'm sure the extra information was really appreciated by their guests.


Testimonial from Gemma and Andrew

"Oh my goodness, we love Kate and all her wonderful designs. With a very, very limited brief (Lilac is our colour and the Italian Lakes is our destination) she has produced a full suite of gorgeous wedding stationary and we are eternally grateful for adding something very special and unique to our wonderful day.

I think everyone will talk about invites for a long time. We had a luggage label save the date, a passport invite for our wedding in Italy, a postcard invite for our wedding reception at Farnham Castle including a guest info card and finally our thank you cards!"
