Trend: Monochrome

Posted on August 19, 2013 by Susan Green | 0 comments

Black and white is the trend for weddings this season. Elegant and striking, a nod to Art Deco.

A fashion conscious bride contacted me a couple of months ago and asked me to bind her this bespoke Wedding Guest Book:

She chose a devastatingly romantic frontspage - as well as her and her husband's names and the date of their wedding, she included Cathy's words from Wuthering Heights: "Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same".

A set of matching Monochrome Mini Journals completed her wedding package - I believe she planned to delight her bridesmaids and best men with them.

If you'd like a bespoke Wedding Guest Book - and perhaps a set of Mini Journals - to co-ordinate with your colour scheme, take a look at your options here and write me an email: info@boundbyhand.co.uk - I'd love to hear about your plans! If you need something classic in a hurry, my White & Neutral guest books are just the thing.
