Using Style and Design in Sophisticated Wedding Invitations

Set the Tone with Sophisticated Wedding Invitations

Sophisticated Wedding Invitations

Though backyard barbeques and events featuring mason jars are becoming more and more popular, there are still brides working to create weddings that highlight the finer things in life. If you really don’t want guests showing up to your high-class to-do, think about utilizing the services of sophisticated wedding invitations. Sophisticated wedding invitations will feature high-quality materials with simple designs and understated elegance. Sophisticated wedding invitations will often employ some of the more traditional elements of wedding invites, such as thin segments of tissue paper between the invitation and the RSVP, simple cream envelopes, and elevated wording.   While black and white dominate the aesthetic of many sophisticated wedding invitations, there are some modern twists to the classic design. Many sophisticated wedding invitations employ the use of bold blocked colors to make an elegant statement. Shop around and don’t think that you don’t have options for your sophisticated wedding invitations.   Your sophisticated wedding invitations will set the scene for your wedding, and they’ll let guests know what to expect before they arrive. Most guests look to the invite for clues to the formality of the event, so let your sophisticated wedding invitations lead the way with grace, simplicity, and understated beauty.

Practice Style and Substance with Bridal Shower Thank You Notes

Bridal Shower Thank You Notes: Start Early!

Bridal Shower Thank You Notes

You’re going to get really sick of writing thank-you cards for gifts during the weeks of wedding activities leading up to the big show, but you still have to do them. Bridal shower thank you notes will likely be the first set of hand-penned words you commit to cute little cards, but they certainly won’t be the last. Let your bridal shower thank you notes act as a practice for the notes to come. Try to get started on your bridal shower thank you notes as soon as you can – right after the shower, while the events of the day are still fresh in your brain. Have your hostess pen a list of givers and gifts during the shower, and always keep the card with the gift. Detailed records will make your bridal shower thank you notes so much easier.   When selecting the right bridal shower thank you notes for your bash, take your own personal style (and the style of the party) into consideration. You don’t need fancy bridal shower thank you notes for a backyard barbeque, and ripped sheets of legal pad paper won’t cut it for a swanky catered affair. Just like with your wedding paper goods, your bridal shower thank you notes are all about context and consistency.

Using Your Proposal in Wedding Décor

Your proposal has likely already become a part of your relationship story. It’s an anecdote you tell to coworkers, at parties, or maybe even on Facebook. It doesn’t matter how extravagant or crazy your proposal was, they’re all memorable. How and when you decided to make it official will be a story you will be asked to repeat for your entire lives. Your kids will want to hear it just as much as you wanted to know the story of your parent’s courtship. So embrace it! Here are a few fun ideas to give a nod to your proposal story in your wedding décor:   Wedding Stationary
Photo shoots for your invitations and save-the-dates are a great time to express your individuality and the unique story of your relationship. Think about snapping photos at the location where you decided to tie the knot for your wedded paper good. If you got engaged at sunset at a local park (even if you were wearing your workout gear), pay homage to that site by staging photos at the exact location where it all went down (sweats optional). Illustrations are a less literal way to interpret your proposal story – subtle references (such as kissing fish stamps for an aquarium proposal or twin rocking chairs for a quiet promise at home) are a silent inside nod that you and your fiancé can share with guests.

Unique Centerpieces
There are many unique and fun centerpieces that have been constructed by couples to reference their unique proposal story. A new and popular choice seems to be table number reorganization – naming guests’ tables after locations (or items) that hold some significance to the relationship. You could also integrate items into the displays that play into your tale, such as monopoly piece confetti (if the proposal happened over a friendly – or heated – board game) or small appetizers that nod to the last meal you shared before becoming fiancé/fiancée.
If you plan to go this route, think about setting up a small display that explains the significance of the unique touches of personal décor. You probably don’t want to be fielding questions all night about the stack of American modernist anthologies under each vase of white roses.   Wedding Website
Every newly-engaged couple should have a wedding website, especially if you’re expecting any number of guests from out of town. A wedding website is a great home base to organize information about your wedding, and it’s easy to find a host for a free one. Many of the sites also come with this fun little tab for details about your relationship. If you haven’t committed the favorite stories of your relationship to paper, this is your chance. There are some details you might not remember in another thirty or forty years, and writing it down while it’s fresh will be something posterity will thank you for.
This is also an opportunity for distant relatives to catch up on the special stories of your relationship that may come up during wedding festivities. After all, you don’t want anyone to be confused about your use of a science fair volcano in place of a unity candle.

Manage and Delight with a Bridal Shower Guestbook

A Bridal Shower Guestbook for the Busy Bride

Bridal Shower Guestbook

If you’re planning a bridal shower for the special bride in your life, you might want to start poking around for the right bridal shower guestbook. Just like the wedding itself, a bridal shower needs a fun way to record attendance for the couple. The wedding isn’t the only party the couple will want to look back fondly on for the rest of their lives – showers, parties, and get-togethers all have a special place in our hearts. By providing a bridal shower guestbook, you’re giving your bride that opportunity – and she’ll be thankful! Find a bridal shower guestbook that fits the bride’s personality for a formal and fun way to greet guests as they appear.   A bridal shower guestbook is also a handy tool for the bride who wants to hop on “thank you” cards as quickly as she can. With a list of guests that attended (not just the ones invited!) a bridal shower guestbook is a handy hint that helps the bride decide what she’s going to write in her cards. If you’re planning a bigger bridal shower, a bridal shower guestbook is a must. It can be pretty embarrassing to write “I loved seeing you at my shower!” when a guest only sent a gift. Gifts are not a requirement at wedding events, but a bridal shower guestbook can help a bride manage the ones she will probably receive.

Formal Wedding Invitations: Kits and Tips

Writing Out your Formal Wedding Invitations

Formal Wedding Invitations

Formal wedding invitations are the one sure-fire way to let your guests know that your wedding will be formal. Formal wedding invitations are your last hope against jeans and sneakers at an event that you’ve spent a lot of time and effort coordinating and planning. While it usually isn’t right to tell your guests how to dress, your formal wedding invitations are an easy way to let your guests know what to expect. If your wedding is taking place at a venue with a dress code, don’t hesitate to add “jackets required” or “black tie” onto your formal wedding invitations.   Formal wedding invitations don’t have to be as expensive as they look, either. With kits available at most distributors, you don’t have to pay outrageous prices for formal wedding invitations. Print them yourself! Handwriting is important for your formal wedding invitations. Consider hiring someone to address your envelopes if you’re opting for formal wedding invitations. You don’t have to break the bank for a calligrapher, either. Enlist the help of a particularly penmanship-blessed bridesmaid, or post an ad for an art student at a local college. Of course, if you believe that your handwriting is beautiful enough for equally beautiful formal wedding invitations, don’t hesitate! Get to addressing your formal wedding invitations as soon as possible!

Finding the Right Casual Wedding Invitations

Casual Wedding Invitations for your Laid-Back Nuptials

Casual Wedding Invitations

Your wedding invitations are the one bit of wedding stationary that almost no one skips, specifically because of how important they are. Casual wedding invitations will help your guests understand what the vibe of your wedding is – how they should dress, what they should expect, etc. If you’re planning on a big to-do black tie affair, it’s safe to bet that you don’t want to stock up on casual wedding invitations. Casual wedding invitations are for casual weddings; weddings where your guests don’t wear ties or sip expensive cocktails.   Casual wedding invitations still conform to all the protocols of standard invitations, however. Be sure to give your guests plenty of notice (6-ish weeks) and make sure they have a card to return an RSVP. The difference with casual wedding invitations, however, is that you probably won’t have delicate inlayed spacer paper and a thousand tiny envelopes within the casing of your casual wedding invitations. Casual wedding invitations should also be paired with equally casual Save-the-Dates, if you can. They, along with casual wedding invitations, will help your guests navigate the formality of your event and plan accordingly.
