Smythson, the exclusive 126-year-old British stationer who has created invitations and stationery for the world’s various royal families, Madonna and Grace Kelly, recently took a leap into the 21st century by allowing anyone with an internet connection the ability order and personalise their world-famous, hand-crafted wedding invitations online.
While it’s hardly Earth-shattering news that yet another traditional vendor is offering its services online, the video Smythson has compiled for the big launch shows just how much care and skill goes into hand-crafting their exquisite products.
You’ll quickly appreciate why their invitations and personalised stationery has been coveted by so many for so very long and how the company earned itself three royal warrants.
It also goes some way to explaining why their prices start at a mind-boggling £400 for just 50 invitations.
Motifs and borders on the invitations and envelope will cost (roughly) a further £300 but, once you see their artists in action, you’ll (possibly) understand why.
How much are you willing to pay for your wedding invitations?
And how much is too much?
