It makes us cringe to hear people say, “I don’t want to waste a lot of money on invitations because people just throw them away.” I agree that people will toss crappy invitations that show no thought or effort was put into them. No one expects a guest to keep something even the bride and groom don’t care about. Invitations are one of the most important parts of preparing for a wedding because they set the tone of what guests are to expect on the wedding day while at the same time helping them prepare for your event. Below are a few reasons why invitations are so important and the information you should include on them in an effort to make your guests excited and prepared for your big day!
-Setting the Tone (let your guest know what kind of wedding you are having)
-Creating Excitement and Anticipation (get them excited for the event to come)
-Providing Pertinent Information (who, when, where, dress code, accommodation information, wedding website, and so much more!)
Calling all boho-glam brides! Woodland inspired weddings are all the rage for 2015, and I am loving it! We are creating more and more invitations featuring wood-textured paper stocks, soft and whimsy handwritten scripts, and beautiful watercolor posies. The theme is carried through with organically structured floral arrangements to fit the garden style. Gold accents to add a certain romance to it all, and soft colored bridesmaid dresses to add a simple elegance. It’s all so pretty, I can’t stand it — definitely a top contender for my favorite wedding style this year.

Not only did we have the opportunity to create the fun invitations for this bride’s bachelorette weekend, but we were able to mimic the invite with an awesome 1920s style head piece! We hope you ladies had a blast! You looked fabulous, Kelly! Stay tuned for photos from the wedding!
How lucky are we to be able to start an invitation from scratch and design something so extraordinary?! We are incredibly honored to have clients that allow us creative freedom to design such unique pieces. We are so in love with these Gatsby inspired invitations. What a night this will be! What do you think? Let us know your thoughts…
We are so incredibly blessed with such amazing clients! It is wonderful to feel appreciated for what we do! We love being a part of each and every event that we do… we can’t express our gratitude enough!
