I remember recruiting my bridesmaids over the phone in floods of (happy!) tears almost as soon as my husband had popped the question, but if I could do it again I’d send out this beautiful Be my Bridesmaid card by I am Nat (£3). Who doesn’t love getting a piece of pretty post, especially when it’s this exciting? Fill the envelope with hand-punched tissue paper confetti and write down details of a Pinterest board full of bridesmaid dress ideas – your best girls will love it!

Letterpress is a centuries-old tradition and consists of a relief plate of type pressing down on each individual sheet of paper. The possibilities for the use of textured and thick papers is greater with letterpress and the process creates a stunning debossed texture.
