Nana-Mari and Follie's big day!

written by Nana-Mari, a bride that got married recently:
I was a very fortunate bride all around, everything was effortless and beautiful because I had the best wedding planner who provided me with the best service providers one can ask for. And one of those, were Elsje Designs. I knew exactly the look I wanted, but didn’t really know how to put it all together. But and after a short meeting and some descriptive words (like ‘glamorous, heavy, theatrical, black, patterns’ etc). They knew exactly what I wanted and I never had a worry since! Not only did they know, they were also very excited about it! I think because my choice of stationary and the whole theme of the wedding were a little bit different. Where normally a bride would say: ‘white’, I would say: ‘black’. This could be a risky business!! But they designed it perfectly. From invitations to menus to church pamphlets, our monogram, ‘thank you’ gift boxes, our favourite poem on a big banner, even beautiful fans that had to be brought in at the last minute due to the heat! It was all just perfect! I never had to change a design because I maybe didn’t like it, as the whole theme was pulled right through in exactly the style and feel I wanted. And of course, the service was impeccable.

I think it is very important to have the right stationery at your wedding. It really sets the tone of the whole event. The moment your guests open their invitation, you are giving them a hint, an idea, of what you have dreamed up for your day. And also, it gives away what type of person you are, what type of wedding you are going to have. It’s almost like… a signature, on every page of your day. YOUR signature, on YOUR day.

Elsje Designs really helped us put our signature on our wedding day! THANK YOU!!
