How To Word Your Wedding Invitations

Planning a wedding is *a lot* of work. There's finding all the vendors, making sure they're available for your date, scheduling payments (bye money, maybe one day we'll meet again), vendor meetings, finding a dress, getting wedding rings, picking wedding colors, finding flowers, organizing your bridal party....and that's not even all of it! 

The one thing I really loved about my wedding planning experience was actually my bridal shower.  It was wonderful because I didn't have to plan a thing! I just showed up, looked cute, ate great food, played fun games and got to go home with a ton of gifts (by the way check to see what your future husband is registering for or else you might end up with a drone at your bridal shower...) I didn't have to think about my shower at all, which is why I created this fun info graphic to help you figure out the right wording for your wedding invitations! Take the energy you would've spent figuring out the right way to word your wedding invites and put it towards a mani pedi. If you're feeling extra fancy grab one of those instagrammable cupcakes too (you know the ones with the pretty colors and crazy thingy-ma-jiggies all over it)

If you're still overwhelmed do the following steps: deep breath in (ooooohh) deep breath out (ahhhh), grab another cupcake (cupcakes don't count as calories when you're planning a wedding) and shoot me an email telling me what you need help with! I love creating invitations because it is literally the first taste your guests will get of your wedding! It is super important to not wait too long to order your invitations, you don't want to end up at your local kinkos printing out some rushed Microsoft word invitations with smudged ink and flimsy paper. That is not the tone you want to set for a day that you have spent so much time, energy and money planning!

This is the Wow Factor You Need on Your Wedding Day

Wedding season is upon us! I absolutely love this time of year, between being a hopeless romantic and a total design nerd I enjoy crying during sappy vows (and testing the staying power of my waterproof mascara) and seeing how the bride and groom used color and design to evoke their personality on their wedding day.  After planning my own wedding, designing weddings/events for my own friends and family and being a bridesmaid 6 times I've experience enough weddings from all different angles now to see what simple steps a bride and groom can do to really elevate their day.

this is the wow factor you need ony our wedding day get the details here!

There is one detail that sometimes gets overlooked at weddings and that is the table decor. Hear me out, yes you spend weeks picking out flowers that you cant even pronounce or even new existed to create the perfect centerpiece, but there is more to a table than that! The tables are essentially little mini hubs, they're the place people congregate to when they want to catch up with friends or family they haven't seen in a while, it's where they're seated when you're introduced for the first time as husband and wife, it's where they will be chowing down on your awesome food, it's where your guests will go when they need to give their dancing feet a break and don't forget a place setting is pretty much the first thing people really take in when they walk into your venue for the first time.

Your guests will be hanging out at their tables A LOT, if you really want to elevate their experience on your wedding then adding little extra details to their "hub" is the way to go!

before and after, how having custom menus completely changes the look of your wedding day.

I believe that food tastes better when you order it off of a nicely designed menu ;) It's so easy to accidentally ignore this detail or *gasp* use the menus that the catering hall supplies to you (you know the ones, they're black and white printed on flimsy computer paper and often times cut unevenly by their intern and photocopied multiple times at kinkos) you are investing SO MUCH in your day, don't overlook your menus, table numbers and place cards! They make a world of difference!
