Finding Joy in Your ‘Best Day Ever’

Ah, the wedding day—the culmination of dreams, the celebration of love, the ‘Best Day Ever’. It’s a day filled with anticipation, excitement, and a desire for everything to be just right. At Gee Brothers, we understand the importance of perfection when it comes to your wedding stationery, but we also believe that true joy lies in embracing the journey and focusing on what truly matters.

Managing Expectations:

The pressure to create the perfect wedding day can be overwhelming. From envisioning flawless invitations to coordinating every detail, it’s easy to get caught up in the quest for perfection. But here’s the truth: perfection is attainable, but it’s also about embracing the journey and the unique touches that make your day truly special.

Here are a few tips to help you navigate the pressure:

1. Set Realistic Goals:  Strive for perfection in your wedding invitations, but also understand that perfection doesn’t mean everything goes exactly as planned. Embrace the journey and the small imperfections that make your invitations uniquely yours.

2. Delegate and Prioritise: Trust in our expertise at Gee Brothers to deliver perfection in your wedding invitations. Delegate other tasks to trusted friends and family members, and prioritize what truly matters to you as a couple.

3. Celebrate Attention to Detail: At Gee Brothers, we understand the importance of attention to detail when it comes to your wedding invitations. Every font choice, colour selection, and paper quality is carefully curated to ensure perfection in every aspect of your stationery suite.

Focusing on What Matters:

Amidst the quest for perfection, it’s important to remember what truly matters: your love and commitment to each other. Instead of getting bogged down by the details, focus on celebrating your journey and the joy of starting a new chapter together.

Here’s how you can keep the focus on what truly matters:

1. Celebrate Your Love: Let your love be the guiding force behind every decision you make, including your choice of wedding invitations. Our team at Gee Brothers is dedicated to capturing the essence of your love story in every design.

2.  Create Meaningful Moments: Infuse your wedding day with meaningful moments that reflect your relationship and values as a couple. From personalized vows to heartfelt toasts, focus on creating memories that will last a lifetime.

3.  Stay Present: Amidst the excitement of the day, take moments to pause, breathe, and soak it all in. Be present with each other and with your guests, savouring every moment of this once-in-a-lifetime celebration.

Love and marriage in the time of Corona

Love and marriage in the time of Corona.

The Covid-19 pandemic has thrown all of our social calendars into chaos. With the UK going into lockdown to help fight the spread of the virus, many of us have had to cancel, postpone, or reschedule the events we had planned for 2020.
Not only is it heart-breaking to have to cancel an event like a family celebration, milestone birthday party or a wedding celebration, but the re-arranging of these events, particularly at short notice, can be incredibly expensive. Unfortunately, a change of date, location or timing renders beautifully printed invitations unusable, and opting to reprint them can add to these costs considerably.
Here at Gee Brothers nothing makes us sadder than seeing finely printed stationery go to waste. We know the care and work that goes into every detail; from the customer’s first ideas, right through to the tissue lined envelopes, it’s a complex process that takes time and dedication to make sure it’s perfect for the big day.
During these uncertain times, it has been even tougher to organise a wedding whilst grappling with frequent changes to the guidelines that help to keep us safe.  We want to try and help in any way we can to make your wedding something wonderful. So, we’ve gotten creative and come up range of ideas that might just be the solution you’re looking for.


So, you’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the wedding; And while florists, bands, and makeup artists can be rebooked, the wedding invites have already been printed. If you’ve been able to rebook your venue for another day, and you’ve still got your original invitations ready to send out, then these small Change-the-Date cards could offer the solution.
Made using a small amount of card or paper and often digitally printed, these are a quick, cost-effective way to inform your guests of the why, the new when and where of the wedding, without the cost of an expensive reprint. Once attached to your original invitations, or slipped inside the envelope, they update your guests and make use of your original invites, so that nothing goes to waste.
Using our quality paper or card, these Mini Change the Date cards can feel just as luxurious as the rest of your invites. Even with a digital print there are so many options – adding colour, motifs or even your own artwork to make them personal, fun and eye-catching. You could also opt have them printed using thermography, letterpress or foiling if you choose and they can even be designed to match your original invitations.
These delightful cards can be ordered through our sales team, just drop us an email at

CHANGE THE DATE & SAVE THE DATE – Use the code SAVE10 for 10% off

From now until August 14th 2020 we’ve got 10% off Save the Dates when you order online.

Though weddings are now allowed to go ahead, it’s just not that straight forward. With limits on the number of guests, the type of service or ceremony allowed and difficulty in finding accommodation for those that can attend, many couples are deciding to hold a small ceremony this year for close friends and family and save the big party until next year instead.
Whatever celebration you have in mind, our save the date cards, available to order online, can be a good, flexible option. Most of our Save the Date cards can easily be adapted to a Change the Date card, or a smaller wedding invitation. The text is entirely editable so you can say what you need to.
Don’t forget that with so many couples in the same boat, next year could get busy quickly. Why not order your save the dates now, and get a head start to make sure your friends and family are free?


If you simply cannot wait to have the invites checked off your to-do list, but are still unsure when it will be, one of our new dateless invitations could be just right for you. We do everything we can here at Gee Brothers to turn around an order as fast as possible, but bespoke traditional printing and delicate hand finishes take time to do right, so why not get the printing out of the way in advance? With Dateless Invitations, you can get on top of your ‘Wedmin’ and have them sooner rather than later, so that once your date is confirmed you can get the invitations out quickly.
Another great tip is to get a calligrapher on board to add the finishing touches, not only will the finish be beautiful, but you’ll be supporting another small business. If you’re interested in calligraphy, we can put you in touch with some very talented people!
Dateless invitations are also perfect for weddings held at a family home, you already know the venue will be available, so why not get ahead?


So, you’ve been able to go ahead, but it’s a very different day to what you’d imagined. With limited numbers allowed at weddings, it can be pricey for such a small amount of invitations. Our fill-in wedding invitation packs are great for small weddings and save money for that big, blowout celebration next year.
With two pack sizes and envelopes included, these are a quick, easy option, giving you just the quantity you need. We’ve a range of digital designs to choose from, with more coming soon. Why not sign up to our newsletter and be the first to know about all our new products when they’re released?

Small Order Quantities
For a limited period, all of our wedding stationery is available with a smaller minimum order quantity to help you order just the amount you need for your day.

The art of letter writing is alive and well

As Simon Sebag-Montefiore brings out a new collection of letters that changed the world (Written in History: Letters that Changed the World, October 2018) it’s very interesting to note that letter writing is once again increasing in popularity as a method of popular communication.

In this digital age, technology has changed the way we communicate. To a long distance friend, we can write a quick email and it’s received in seconds, which is wonderful. However much we relish the ability to stay in touch with friends and family so efficiently, it is equally lovely to receive a hand-written letter or note of thanks. There is something very personal about opening a letter and taking a moment to read (and often re-read) its contents. What is also wonderful is rediscovering letters and notes, years after they have been written. If you’ve ever spent time sorting through old boxes, you will know how special it is to find a letter from years ago and how the memories come flooding back as you read it!

Letters have been written for centuries and changed the course of history. From love letters to declarations of war, ranging from Elizabeth I to Stalin, Marcus Aurelius to Machiavelli, Oscar Wilde to Balzac, Rameses the Great to Gandhi; the significance of a letter in each instance cannot be underestimated. In his book, Sebag-Montefiore has selected letters that have changed the course of global events or touched a timeless emotion – whether passion, rage, humour – from ancient times to the twentieth century: some are noble and inspiring, some despicable and unsettling, some are exquisite works of literature, others brutal and coarse.

Although we are no longer in the golden age of letter-writing, there are instances when a written letter is the only proper way to communicate. Intriguingly, the Secret Services of many key nations are now using letters to communicate between agents as it is much safer and less prone to hacking. As its popularity increases with many, so does the need for elegant writing paper and correspondence cards. We have been printing elegant personal stationery for over 40 years and have recently introduced a range of writing paper and correspondence cards available to order online. It couldn’t be easier and you can personalise however you wish, with a choice of card colour, ink and typefaces.

Whatever your circumstances, a supply of personalised stationery will always be invaluable – and wouldn’t we all like to think our penned notes and letters are worth saving?
