As sustainability issues continue to grow, more people are thinking about how to make their wedding day more sustainable. Eco-friendly choices from food to decorations are expanding so it’s timely to be introduced to Poppy and Thistle eco wedding stationery.
Poppy and Thistle invites, save the dates, place cards, menu cards and more are all printed on eco-friendly, vegan and plantable wildflower-seed recycled paper. That’s a lot of sustainability in one go!
And it doesn’t stop there. They are also hand-made, customisable or you can have a bespoke design made. The envelopes are also recycled, as is the box you’ll receive them in. Everything has been thought through.
You can even plant them… 🍃
What I love most about these eco wedding invitations is the papers are embedded with wildflower seeds so guests can plant their invitations after.
A bunch of wildflowers will grow from the seeds in the paper, making it a gorgeous way to remember the occasion, and do our bit for bees and butterflies!
How it began… ✏️
Founder Kathryn Williams got in touch to introduce me to the brand.
She says: “I’ve always loved to draw and be creative and the idea for Poppy and Thistle came about when a friend of mine was planning her wedding. While searching for wedding invite designs, I thought two things. First, I’d love to design wedding invites and work with couples to get exactly what they want. The second, was how much paper is used for wedding suites and then thrown away.“
Super passionate and excited about her products and service, she has something that’s not only beautifully crafted but also conscientiously put together with true sustainability in mind.
“By using recycled paper we’re not relying on new paper and deforestation, which damages our environment. We’re also encouraging environments for bees and other wildlife to live in and feed from by growing wildflowers from the seed paper invites.”
