Q. How can I tie my stationery into my Christmas wedding theme without being tacky?

A. Heather McMillan says: Less is more! When it comes to wedding stationery think Christmas colours, imagery, sparkle and snow, then choose one or two, and let the main message be about your wedding day keeping the seasonality in the background.

Modern twists on traditional Christmas colours work really well – rich mulled wine hues, teal and gold. Pair with a small nod to the festive season in the form of an icon such as a cute little reindeer and this is all you need.

Alternatively, keep it classic with a white card, traditional typeface and winter flowers, not necessarily holly, but red berries, pinecones and foliage. Red foil also makes a lovely addition. For something simple, consider a winter wonderland theme with white, silver, and snowflakes.

The key is to keep the focus on you and your partner. Concentrate on what Christmas means to you and use that as inspiration to create the perfect tone for your wintry wedding.

Q. We love bright summer colours and want to incorporate them into our stationery. Do you have any suggestions?

A. Samantha Browning says: - Incorporate your chosen shades into your place cards.

- Include a floral design on the menus.

- Decorate your table plan with lots of vibrant blooms.

- Use the venue as inspiration. If the room has one colour that particularly stands out, try to choose a hue that complements it.
