Your wedding invitation wording can be done in countless ways, which can best reflect the style of your occasion & also your personalities. Typically, the wording on a wedding invite will normally include some or all of these elements:

the hosts,
who is invited (with or without guestname personalisation),
bride and groom names,
date & time,
location details
reception details,
R.S.V.P. deadline & contact details.

It’s ok to be creative (we encourage it!), but it is imperative to still remain clear and concise with all the pertinent information for your guests on your wedding invitation. Utilising additional wedding stationery accessories like RSVP Cards, Extra Information Cards & Wishing Well Cards is a great way to keep your invitation simple & elegant.

Refer to our quick guide to help choose the best style for your own wedding invitation wording! And remember our team of Designers at Paper Divas have years of expertise, and are here to help!

Our Specialty Carstocks Explained

1/01/2019 3:51 PM



Choosing which cardstock to print your wedding stationery onto may be one last little decision that really can tie your theme together! Our Linen and Shimmer cardstocks are both unique and special in their own ways.

We have test printed all of our designs on both cardstocks to ensure that they look amazing, but choosing your cardstock can really change the tone of your event. We are frequently asked for our advice on which cardstock will look best on certain invitations so we have prepared a few notes to help you decide!


The nature of this divine cardstock is it’s beautiful and subtle texture (much like a linen tablecloth). This will add a timeless feel to your wedding stationery, instantly adding a delicate and textural experience to your invitee!

The Linen cardstock is very versatile as it can really change the tone of your invitations. Linen can be chosen to suit a rustic or botanical design so that it feels more organic & earthy, or if you’re choosing a more glamorous or typographic invitation the Linen will help it to appear very delicate and sophisticated.

This card has a matte finish, which can be written on with pen (it will be a touch bumpy) and the texture is evident on both sides. This card is 280gsm (similar thickness to a high-quality business card).

Environmental Credentials:

Linen is FSC certified, sourcing pulp from managed plantations and responsible forests. The fibre used to produce it is elemental chlorine free. (Source: K.W. Doggett Fine Paper)



If you really want to wow your guests, then making the choice to print your wedding stationery on the Shimmer Cardstock will blow them away! Shimmer maintains a unique industrial look, while feeling very high-end and glam!

This metallic cardstock is a very unique cardstock which has a subtle silver pearlescent texture which shines through the paler colours of your card. Please note that due to the absorbant properties of the Shimmer cardstock, areas of bold black and dark tones will print with a slightly matte finish, as this is an uncoated cardstock (i.e. not glossy).

You can write on this card, but we do recommend using a ballpoint pen and letting it dry before you touch it. The Shimmer texture is evident on both sides. This card is 300gsm (similar thickness to a high-quality business card).

Environmental Credentials:

Shimmer is made with FSC certified pulp and manufactured in an environment that is ISO 14001 EMS accredited. Curious Metallics Digital (Shimmer) is also made with elemental chlorine free pulps, which help to reduce harmful by-products. (Source: K.W. Doggett Fine Paper)



Ordering a Sample

If you would like to see and feel these cardstocks for yourself, you are very welcome to order a sample pack online, and we will send you samples in all our cardstocks including Shimmer and Linen. Samples can be ordered by clicking the “Order A Sample” button on each product page.


A Note about Digital Printing

Our designers treat every order with immense care and respect, but if you choose to print a photo on your product we will often lighten an image ever so slightly in the mid-tones to reduce the appearance of graininess. With the rise of smart-phones, sadly the quality of these photos are often still sub-standard to that of a real camera – usually being grainy if taken in low-light; and filters can give unexpected printing results. When you view a card from 30cm away any affect of grain will usually become invisible to the eye (this is a digital printing standard).

Honeymoon Destinations - 2019

14/11/2018 3:02 PM

This is not just any holiday. It’s your honeymoon! It’s meant to be a once in-a-lifetime experience that you will alway remember. And a great opportunity for you and your newly loved-up spouse to steal time away from the madness of the world (and all the wedding planning that has been consuming your time). Not only can your honeymoon be relaxing, but also a great way to have fun and experience new cultures with the love of your life.

But WHERE to go on your honeymoon can produce a lively pre-nuptial discussion - there are SO many options!

I’m not getting married or going on a honeymoon anytime soon... but a girl can dream! So below is a list of the places I’m dreaming of.
I hope they give you and your fiance inspiration and prompt lively discussion ..... Did someone say “Tropical Island”....


Bora Bora
When I think honeymoon, I think tropical island, and Bora Bora is truly the stuff honeymoon fantasies are made of!  Pure white sandy beaches for miles, crystal clear waters and rustic huts floating over the ocean - what more could a girl ask for!  In between romantic helicopter rides, snorkelling the coral reefs and sampling the cocktails, it would be difficult not to relax with your new "hubby" / "wife". 


With it’s undeniable reputation as the most romantic city in the world, it only seems fair to shortlist Paris as your perfect honeymoon destination.  A sunset cruise to the “Temple of Love” (yes it’s really called that) might interest you, or perhaps a tango along the seine is more your scene.  Either way,  between the historic architecture, world-renowned art, glorious food and delectable wine, it would be difficult not to get swept away by the romance that can only be found in the city of lights (or la Ville des Lumières as they say in French).


Few places are as romantic as the greek islands and Santorini might just be the most stunning of them all. This small volcanic island is known for its seriously stunning sunsets and pristine whitewashed villas.  Even couples who get antsy after an hour of beach time will find lots to explore. Take a scooter to the famous red sand beaches, check out ancient ruins, visit wineries, go hiking and window shop in the many boutiques.


The island's clear waters, tropical sunsets and lush greenery make Hawaii a no-brainer for a romantic getaway. Your honeymoon will be full of snorkeling trips and dreamy horseback rides along the beach. Watch the sunrise while wrapped in a blanket at the top of Haleakala Crater, or gaze at the sunset as you cruise along the Kihei coastline. Instant romance.


Canadian Rocky mountains
If you are an outdoorsy couple then this might just be the perfect destination for your ultimate romantic honeymoon. With pristine wilderness at your doorstep beckoning for you to explore, you may be tempted enough to leave your rustic log cabin. Finish each day next to a cozy crackling fireplace, a glass of red from a nearby winery - all while snuggled up to your sweetheart.

Wherever you choose, I hope your honeymoon is everything that you dreamed of and more.  Have fun planning!



Flower Crowns

10/07/2018 3:25 PM

Flower crowns make us happy. Whether it's a delicate arrangement of soft greenery or a bold bright arrangement of seasonal blooms, they are just so nice to look at. We've been busy curating a few of our favorite florists from around Australia. Take a look below.

 The Posy Supply Co

Poppy and Fern Flowers

Poppy and Fern belongs to Byron Bay based Jess. Jess has been a florist for 12 years. Jess says "I still get excited about unpacking the boxes that come in and handing my brides there bouquets for the first time gives me the warm and fuzzes and quite often tears in my eyes."

We adore the look of Jess' beautiful flower crown parties and think they would make a lovely activity for a bridal shower.

 The Queens Quarters

They have a very diverse studio working on wedding floral design, running an online flower and plant shop, styling events and offering event hire. We just love the look of this amazing space.

 Mint and Melon

We will let Mint and Melon describe themselves as I don't think we could do it so well.

“Mint and Melon is a collaboration of bohemian style and modern femininity… we specialise in handmade silk flower crowns and fashion accessories for all occasions. Born from the need to be different, we do not run with the pack, we make our own destinies and for that we are unique… some call us quirky, we say creative. We are all about high quality boutique style, we do not skimp on perfection for that is what we value most!"

Amazing Wedding Photography ideas to Inspire!

25/06/2018 2:49 PM


From behind the design team’s desks, we encounter multiple wedding thank you cards daily. Nautrally, we are always keen to see the type of wedding photos which are being chosen to upload and print onto their special momentos! Weddings are such a major part of our clientelle here at Paper Divas, and we always treat every order with care and respect when it is being printed - ensuring that we get the best quality result, so that you are nothing less than over the moon with your printed cards :)

This had us thinking, what are the most bizarre, creative & unique wedding photographs that we have ever seen?

Turn to Instagram, and we are lost inside a world of creative genius – a mix of daring photographers, coupled with brave brides & gregarious grooms! Think colourful smoke bombs, tropical reef backdrops, long-exposure flames,  and even the very talented multiple-exposure editing!

If this all sounds a little bit strange, keep scrolling to see our four top wedding photography ideas, as inspired by Pinterest, Instagram and the amazing photographers out there! See if any of these ideas spark some intrigue for your own wedding day - we would love to see what you come up with!




Amazing Photography Idea #1




A relatively new trend has been gracing the feed on Pinterest for weddings - smoke bombs!! Create a completely random, totally unique and etherial image by using something as simple as a smoke bomb!

Your photographer will probably need the help of an assistant to capture these types of dreamy landscapes, hopefully dry air, and very little wind! They're easy to purchase, and come in an array of colours, so you can get so creative and have so much fun when you unlesh the unscripted beauty of a smoke bomb, as captured so beautifully by Malou Peters and Jessica Oh below.



An assistant can be hiding just off the frame of the shot to get the smoke in a good position, or the couple can play with the smoke bombs themselves and create the movement.





Amazing Photography Idea #2






This whimsy effect is down to pure talent by the photographer, coupled with a bit of luck! You could talk to your photographer before the day to ask if they can take a few captures of the location or landscape so that you can receive a couple of super-special double-exposure photos in your album. They can either achieve the double-exposure affect by some skillful Photoshop or even in-camera techniques.







Amazing Photography Idea #3



Perhaps if you’re having a destination wedding, or maybe doing a trash the dress photoshoot, then don’t underestimate the drama and beauty of an underwater photoshoot! What better way to capture the raw beauty of your elopement in the Pacific Islands than with a view from above and below the water... Imagine the thrill your friends & family will feel when they see just what you got up to on your wedding day!






Amazing Photography Idea #4






By late in the evening both you, your new hubby and the photographer are probably all feeling really confident and creative with your wedding photos! Time to let your hair down and try something totally new! All you need are some sparklers, a torch or even an LED light, a tripod and a little bit of patience! Your photographer will change the settings on their big fancy camera to allow for a long-exposure photo, which may be up to about 10 seconds long. This means that you have 10 seconds to stay still as a handy assistant will run around and 'paint' with light! The results speak for themselves, and surely a moment in time you will treasure forever.




Mums who Inspire

6/06/2018 3:14 PM



Our Instagram feed has us scrolling through hunderds of amazing images on a daily basis. We scroll through the cutest of newborns, the most gorgeous mummas, and then there's the kids that look as though they must never be naughty!! Arhhh Instagram we love you so, but sometimes it's just way to easy to get caught up wishing our lives were a little more like those #instamums! But every once in a while an incredible mumma inspires us with a journey, story and empowered page with posts that makes us laugh, cry, feel strong and totally inspired all at once.

These 5 women are a must to follow and connect with on Instagram!

  1.  @Hipster_mum


@Hipster_Mum is a playful fun and hillarious instagram feed featuring so many little nuggets of gold! From funny quotes about parenting to honest advice and motivational messages!

We love this quote from @Hipster_Mum "If you can balance the everyday joys and pain-in-the-ass realities of parenting with honesty and a sense of style, you’ve got a plan that’s just so crazy it might work."






 2. @gratitude_project


Angela Simson is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, happiness researcher, mother and wife. Her page is so connected, honest and real. The Gratitude Project website also features the most lovely ebook titled "30 Days of Self Love" which shares tools for creating connection and nourishment for your mind, body and soul.





 3. @rachelle.rowlings


This lady tells it how it is! A mum who shares the ups and downs of parenthood in an entertaining and engaging way. Don't just look at her lovely pics because its the commentary on @rachelle.rowlings instagram posts that will have you laughing real belly laughs!!



4. @notsomumsy


Not So Mumsy is “an online community for like-minded mamas who love and celebrate motherhood, but also retain a sense of self and style.” in between the stunning stylish images of Marcia and her family are sweet little quotes that will make you smile. Her page features pretty pictures and honest words. A winning combo. 



As most of you know I’m a big believer in signs from the universe. My #nsmfertility story is full of them. From the baby girl clothes my cleaner placed around my home, to the random pink balloon on our way to the IVF transfer that conceived Poppy, to the dozens of reflection rainbows covering belly on the morning of my baby shower.... And just when I thought I’d shared them all.... After our second loss my husband randomly sent me a picture of a neon sign that said “Always believe something wonderful is going to happen..” I cried buckets. I was in a very dark place and found so much comfort in the saying. It became my mantra as I navigated the following weeks. I kind of filed it away, and forgot about it until last Sunday, halfway through Poppy’s first birthday party. I looked down at a little table decorated at the last minute by @jo_kalivas_events_styling - she’d placed all of my favourite pictures of Poppy - and swipe to see what sat in the middle.... yep. A vase with that very saying. Surrounded by my something wonderful. At her magical unicorn party. Jo doesn’t even know this yet!... So just a little reminder if you’re still waiting for your something or someone wonderful. Always believe it’s about to happen


5. @alongcamefox


It's the simple things in life. @Alongcamefox is a page that shares the little moments of joy and happiness whilst sharing an inspired approch to parenting. Its so lovely to see her children getting their hands dirty in the garden and happily playing in nature. Along Came Fox is definity worth a follow.



A M I R I G H T // or am I right? Tonight Fox decided to go exorcist level toddler on me. I am talking full on unstoppable back arching ear piercing cling to the door frame of the car and yell at mum while trying to kick her but cling to her at the same time kinda tantrum. For a second I thought the federal police accross the road were going to call the asylum. Or child protective services. I was probably more scared of the later if I am honest because the asylum would at least give me a mama break. Sometimes. Just rarely. Ok not rarely at all. I wonder if I am cut out for this mum gig. Did your toddler test your sanity today? . . . . . . #whereisthelove #mustardmonday #mumlife #realtalk #motherhoodisabitch #motherhood #ilovehimreally #ijustdontlikehimsometimes #behindthescenes #foxienaps

Warm up for a Winter Wedding!

1/06/2018 1:11 PM

Winter Wedding Myths Debunked!

As we have just entered into another idyllic Australian winter, our thoughts and inspired ideas have turned to those planning a Winter wedding.

Often engaged couples can be turned off the idea of a winter wedding, due to weather inconsistencies, the risk of a change of venue depending on rain/hail/snow/wind, or maybe they're worried about how to accessorise a wedding frock for colder temps - or all of the above!!



Making the most of Seasonal Flowers

Just becuase your favourite peonies or bright tulips might not be in season for your winter wedding, don’t feel limited by the creative scope for an awe-inspiring floral bouquet.

In Australia, the options are still abundant! Some of the most popular wedding flowers which you can consider for a winter-time wedding are:

Camellias, Hyacinth, Iris, Oriental Lillies, Singapore Orchids, Glass House Roses, Anemones, Ranunculus, Jonquils, Antheriums, Camellias, Carnations, Gardenias, Gladiolis, Sweet Peas, Daphnes, Star of Bethlehems, Freesias, Gardenia, Gladioli, Hyacinth, Iris, Magnolias, Poppies, Oriental Lilies, Lavender.

Now with that list you can hardly feel limited anymore! Take a walk in your local park, a friend’s farm or nature reserve and take in the bounty of native greenery too - this might prove to be a potentially free resource for dressing your table setting!



You don't have to freeze in your wedding dress!

They say that if you’re wearing uncomfortable shoes, it shows on your face! Well if something like this is true, then we don’t want to risk the bride (or the bridal party) getting chilled on your wedding day. To keep you warm and glowing, why not embrace the change in temps and go for a wedding dress with sleeves. Tatiana (pictured above) went one step further, and actually coupled her wedding ensemble with a black leather jacket too!

If you want to be a bit more subtle, you could try hiding some warm tights under your long frock and perhaps even wear boots instead of open heels. Other warm accessories are a (preferrably faux) fur stole, a veil, scarf, shrug, cape or even a chic cardigan.

Be cool, in cool tones

Winter wedding colour palettes are actually my personal favourite! There’s something so special about the restraint of a palette of desaturated cool tones, greys and greens. Of course, there is no ‘rule’ about what exactly winter colours should be, rather an inspiration drawn from the landscape during the season.

Alternatively to create some contrast, a very popular trend is to warm up an event with the dramatic touch of a rich crimson colour palette. Nothing warms the shackles of your heart more than a day celebrating love, so why not dress your wedding day with a lavish and heart-warming ruby or crimson tone, set next to a bit of rustic brass or gold for some shine.

There is no right or wrong, but if you're feeling stuck consider the landscape or building where you’re getting married and how this may influence your wedding theme. We believe that your save the date cards and wedding invitations are the best way to set the tone for your wedding day. We have tried to cater for every theme and style imaginable with our range of designer wedding invitations!

Naturally, if there’s something specific which you want changed or custom-made, then our design team are all ears - get in touch!


Eat local & seasonal fare!

 Get cozy with the plethora of delicious winter comfort food on offer for your wedding reception. When you think of winter food, soup is one of the first foods that comes to mind. Take it beyond the predictable and try serving spicy tomato soup in shot glasses for a cocktail reception!

Couple some hearty red protein with local merlot, served up next to sides of root vegetables and greens. Later in the evening you could go one step further to both warm up (and loosen up) your guests by having home-made mulled wine on hand!

Ways To Re-use your Wedding Flowers

16/05/2018 3:26 PM



I find myself wondering and I thought you might be too... just where do all those beautiful flowers go when the wedding vows have been read, the glamorous dinner party has come to an end and the last song has struck its final note?

I just can't help thinking about the many bunches of seasonal florals that must go to waste when the wedding day ends. So just how can you let the ephemeral beauty of Wedding florals last a little longer?

Here are four solutions to giving your wedding flowers life beyond the wedding day.




There are so many great ways to preserve your wedding bouquet. One really lovely way to cherish the beauty of your bouquet is to create an elegant and timeless piece of fine art with "The Heirloom Bouquet"

Your bouquet will be transformed into a unique photographic composition with custom hand calligraphy. Other beautiful methods of preservation include letting your flowers dry or freeze framing your bouquet.




There are so many people and places that could be brightened by your wedding florals. A great idea is to donate your flowers to a local organisation in your community.

Contact your local Cancer Council, Hospital, a Retirement Home or Hospice. Your bunches will be sure to brighten the days of the staff and residents. You may even be able to claim part of your wedding flowers as a tax deductable donation.




Okay, so potpourri isn't for everyone. But If you want to treasure your bouquet for just a little longer consider letting it dry and turning the dried petals into a beautiful bowl of potpourri. Not only will it make a great center piece in your home it will remind you of your special day for months to come.




If you happen to be wed in your local city or town and are close to the memorials of your lost loved ones, consider taking your blooms to them. It's a great way to honour and treasure their memory.

 If you have any more ideas or suggestions on how you can re-use your wedding day bouquets & florals, we would love to hear about them in the comments!
