USA reality TV show WINS at choosing wedding invites



Yep, that's right... you wake up one morning and your email is practically broken because a couple in a US reality TV show have suggested they are going to use wedding tea towels. 

It took FBI level searching for me to piece it all together but eventually I discovered it was Vanderpump Rules. Now, it's been a steep learning curve this week and this is where I am at:

1. Vanderpump Rules is a US spin off of The Real Housewives of Beverley Hills and follows a mum / restaurant owner and the frolics and drama of the restaurants and I quote, 'wild group of employees'. You can imagine the rest. 

2. Despite what they lady from the invitation shop on the show said, they do not cost $18 per invite... I wish they did. I'd be rich I tell you!

3. We love our American neighbours *massive wave* but I am going to go out there and say that mostly, you guys seem thoroughly confused as to what a tea towel is. Let me help... I think you guys may be call them dish towels and you've also probably never printed a wedding invitation on them before, you're maybe a bit confused but don't be, it's awesome and you'll love it. 

More incoming as I work it all out but all in all, good times, I love a TV mention.

If you'd like to see all our non-$18 per tea towel designs then go on right ahead and check out our Gallery and if you've got any questions, email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk

Gosh, we are so flexible we are practically made of rubber.




Imagine this... you're trawling the Internet through hundreds of thousands of boring, seen it all before invitations, save the dates or favours, and then you come across possibly probably the most amazing things you've seen so far in your wedding search - ORIGINAL WEDDING TEA TOWEL! That's us (hi x)


And now you're thinking to yourself, gosh I really love their, say, Love Story design but I wish I could say something different on there, maybe even be in a different language, perhaps include a picture of our pet pooch Bumfluffywuffy or add our own venue to make it that bit more personal. Oh well, they obviously can't help with that so I guess I'll carry on looking at more yawnfest ideas until I work out what I am going to do...



Well HOLD IT RIGHT THERE OUR WEDDINGY FRIENDS! We can totally help. If you love one of our designs but have your own idea then that is totally fine. Check out this example above, one personalised dog friend and an invitation completely in Icelandic!



We've also:


  • Included so many of your own venues that we must have nearly every wedding place on file (don't ask me though as I will never be able to find them again!)
  • Added your children to be with the couples or playing on the hills
  • Included hobbies like walking, cycling, music or skiing
  • Added your furry friends from tiny birds to massive horses
  • Changed countless lady birds to butterflys / horse shoes / flowers
  • Changed hearts to moons or birds to ducks
  • Erased hot air balloons from the horizon with just one click
  • And many, many more


... I think you get the point. Every single design is created totally for you so we can do whatever you want. 



So there it is, talk to me. I'm Karen - karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk - or check out our gallery here:


Bye for now.

*whispers* There's only 11 more weeks until C********..


That's 81 days today or, if you prefer, 7,052,90 seconds (7,052,89, 7,052,88... ).

I'll admit, I have given Christmas a teeny weeny bit of thought already, I'm not exactly excited about it yet as such... but I can definitely feel that it's in the air. Ben & I pretty much have one eye on the big guy in red from the second we step foot back on UK soil after our summer holidays.

So just a gentle mention now so it's been said, everyone wants to hand out their amazing wedding tea towels to their friends and family whilst they're doing their mass socialising over the holidays so if this is you, my advice, get in there with your order as soon as you can. That way, you'll know you've got them ready to wow your guests in plenty of time.

Now, I won't mention the big C again until December... (although I probably will).

See you soon,
Karen xx

Tie the Knot (this is the last time I will mention it, promise)


 In case you've been hiding from us for the last two days, you might have heard us mention (one million or so times) that we went to our first wedding show in a very, long time at the weekend. 

The one we chose to (re) debut ourselves at was Tie the Knot, a unique and eclectic wedding carnival, and I have to say, the whole thing was absolutely perfect for us. The lovely couples who came to meet us were right up our street and were so in to our lovely wedding tea towels that it made us feel all warm, fuzzy and most importantly, totally creative.

So massive thank you to everyone we met from the all important lovely couples, to the gorgeous fellow suppliers, to the fab families of soon to be wed couples that were scouting on behalf of their loved ones.

We had a blast!




In the meantime though, if you want to chat anything over then do email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk or you can see all our designs right here. 

Maybe meet you all again soon!

A story of a couple who go off on holiday and THE most exciting stuff happens... and they miss it all.


WE WERE ON HOLIDAY AND WE WERE FEATURED ON MARIE CLAIRE... and the tragedy is, that we didn't even know. Darn having no internet when you go away and this amazingness that happens the day after you leave.

But still massive smiles that we were lucky enough to be included and that they think we are one of the 15 most beautiful wedding invitations. I have to say, I agree.

This one above is our Secret Garden design but if you'd like to see all of our other designs then take a look here or if you have any questions then email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk

Thanks and special message to the press, thank you and please please please keep 'em coming!

Wedding Tea Towels... not just for weddings y'know.


What the heck! It's a wedding tea towel... but it's not for a wedding! It's for a 70th birthday celebration. And we don't mind one bit, in fact, we the opposite of don't mind, which is... umm... we're really happy about it. 

Take a look at the party and our wedding tea towels in action and if you've got something a bit different you'd like to use wedding tea towels for, then just ask! We're very friendly I promise and the answer is usually going to be a massive Y.E.S!





To see all our designs take a look at our site or if you've got any questions or anything you'd like to talk through then email me on karen@weddingteatowels.co.uk, I love to chat tea towels!

See you later

My superpower...



Some have super strength, some have x ray vision and some have bad ass kung fu fighting skills. Me? I have the power to... sniff out a wedding. Literally ANYWHERE IN THE WHOLE WORLD.

Take our recent holiday for example, we were cruising around the Mediterranean, perhaps not much chance to spot a wedding for you regular folk but for me, easy.

We got off the boat... I mean ship (you're not allowed to call 'her' a boat apparently) in Italy and off we went on a bus to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and look what was going on. A wedding. I mean that's got to be up there with the best as a pretty special place to get married.

Then, on the ship, I just went for a wonder around the decks and what do I spy happening in The Bridge? You guessed it.



I did also see another bride but I was walking behind her and thought she'd think I was bonkers if I started taking her photo so you'll just have to trust me on that one.

So, there is it. Wherever there is a wedding, I will be there. No sweat.

Hope you're all having a lovely Summer and doing lots of lovely things.



Bye Bye for now.
