Every year brings subtle and sometimes not so subtle changes in fashion. In clothing it might be the length of a skirt or a particular fabric. Colour often dictates a changing trend. Think of the 1970s and browns and oranges spring to mind. For the 1980s it’s royal blues, hot pink and metallic highlights.
At Ananya we notice emerging styles and modes and use them to inspire our stationery.
The year 2013 has brought some particularly vibrant colour palettes and ‘looks’ which are on trend but timeless.
If you check our YouTube channel you can watch our film ‘Wedding Stationery Trends for 2013’ which shows the array of shades, designs and options brides and grooms can choose from in our wedding stationery collection for this year. (We’ll be adding other informative stationery videos to the site soon.)
Vaishali Shah talks about her favourite 2013 stationery style – Emerald Green (which is Pantone’s colour of the year) which expresses love, oneness, balance, renewal and regeneration.
Green is also a very easy colour to adapt to a couple’s personality. It can be either cool and serene or majestic and dynamic.
Another look that is going to be key in 2013 is the 1920’s – with the new film of the Great Gatsby launching. This decade makes its appearance in our 1920's inspired wedding stationery with dusky pinks, greens and bold, geometric attention-grabbing detail.
Ananya's stationery designs have an exotic opulence and the East Meets West collection shows this to perfection. Luxury brands like Chanel and Boucheron have picked up on this and designed ranges which reflect this fascination. Ananya depicts this East/West fusion with gemstone colours, rich shades … sheer opulence.
If you’re looking for something particularly personal to you, then investigate the options of commissioning a personalised monogram for your wedding day or some stationery featuring photography of you as a couple.
Whatever the wedding stationery trend you find most appealing, you’ll be delighted with the ‘feel’ of our stationery and the sumptuous impression it gives.
