We do hope your 2017 will be full of new adventures and beautiful begging on your journeys ahead.
Today we would like to share with you something that we have been working over the last couple of months, a new Pocket Fold Collection. We find that more and more of you are getting married abroad and have guests and family joining you across the globe.
A Day Invitation is more often now a companion to Travel Details & Direction Cards and other information your guests might need when planning their trip.
Today for our first #designmonday we introduce a Black Matt Luxury Modern Pocket Suite . Includes: Day Invitation & Travel Details Card & Rsvp + Envelope. We used a city scape of our lovely home city of London, as the one to kick of the 2017.
With following weeks ahead we will share with you a #designmonday. Which we introduce in 2017 as a way to share with you a new design we create here in Cartalia Studios.
All the best,

Who do not spend hours thinking about where should your auntie Meredith sit? And your uncle John? Once you create your prefect seating plan, you have to think how to show our guests whery they should have a seat. Why do not give them a wedding favour, a perfect keepsake from you Big Day?
This is why we decided to create unique name tags made from 100% beechwood.
We do laser cut them in different fonts so you have a variety of choices!
You can also choose the wood color, which would match perfectly your wedding theme:
- natural wood
- whitened wood
- dark brown wood
- black wood
They can lay directly on the table, on the plate or... wherever you want them to!
Did you ever consider giving your guests something crafted especially for them?
Posted: Apr 10 2015Do you find yourself worrying about choosing the wrong type of invitation? Cartalia has put together a few practical tips and explanations which will make your decisionmaking process easier.
Visual aspect of your invitations
While your invitations don’t necessarily have to match your wedding style, they definitely do give the guests an impression of how formal your special day will be. For this reason, you should start by matching the tone of your invitations with that of the wedding day.
Planning a glamorous reception with tuxedoes and evening gowns? Go for a lace invitation with satin ribbons and classic colours such as red, white, gold or brown, such as our Gold Shell Lace Wedding Invitation.
Thinking of a more casual evening with your closest family and friends? Choose a cheery and playful invitation which will reflect fancy dress is not your top priority.Our laser cut wedding day invitations are perfect for setting the tone for such theme.Directly Inform Your Guests
However, to avoid unpleasant surprises, it is best to directly inform the guests about your specific dress preferences and expectations for the day.
Despite the frequent debate whether invitations have to colouristically match the rest of your wedding, we believe that as long as they go together with your other wedding papers, you will be fine. The best way to sort this out is to buy a full set, such as the Laser Cut Butterfly Purple Filigree Day Invitation below.
Create a Website For Your Wedding Day
A good way to ensure your guests dress according to the wedding’s theme is creating a “Dress Code” option on your website. By doing so, you can be more informal and go into more detail than on your invitations. This simple, yet effective addition will allow you to keep your guests informed about any information you may want to update them with before your wedding.
