Tell Me a Story {Save The Dates}

16 Feb

These personalized Save the Dates come from Louella Court, where they put a spin on southern vintage story telling. The designer created this STD for her sister and her new fiance by telling their love story in a unique way. She took his love of vintage music posters as her design guide when chosing her fonts and layout.  I would love getting one of these in the mail and think its great when couples have the chance to create something that is not only personal but one of a kind! Enjoy!

Cootie Catcher Programs

3 Feb

Remember the days of making cootie catchers in middle school? Well, we have found a great vendor that makes them for programs and favors!! GinghamGrins on Etsy has a variety of options for personalizing a cootie catcher for your ceremony or reception. I love this idea and think they are a unique way to show off the details! Enjoy!

Whats for Dinner?

 Try these easy DIY menu wraps for your reception. The only parts needed to accomplish this project is paper, printer, glue, scissors, and Microsoft word! Layout your menu on any word document, making sure to keep the margins within the width of your napkins. Print several copies on cardstock and cut, fold, and glue. They should easily slide on the day of the wedding and most caterers or Coordinators can help make sure they get put on correctly!!

Send me a Post Card!

26 Jan

Post Cards area great theme idea to use when trying to decide a cohesive factor that will tie all parts of the wedding together. There are many different options to use without being to overbearing and lets face it- Who doesn’t love getting postcards in the mail?? For starters incorporate postcards into your Save the Dates or Invitations. I love these custom created invitations by Jeremy and Kathleen that were showcased on my favorite blog United with Love.

I also love this option from Hello Lucky 

HeartLand Invitation

 
Then once guests have arrived at the reception there are lots of options for keeping this great them rolling! Instead of the traditional tented ecru escort cards, try these fabulous Post Card inspired options from etsy seller Pascomt

 I like these cards from GreenAcres Cottage on Etsy- they come in packs of 50 or 100 and can be calligraphed to be used as escort or place cards.

Or if you are a DIY project kind of bride, hunt down interesting vintage postcards and string them up at the reception for guests to take and find their seat. They will have a great vintage keepsake, and you will have a wonderful photo op!

If you want to take the next step, pull together post cards of your favorite travel locations or places you and your hunny have been on vacation. Frame them and put them out on tables instead of table numbers for your guests to find their seats.

For a great guest book option, ask guests to write notes of well wishes, advice, or best memories on post cards that you have ordered or collected from your favorite places. Have the cards pre addressed and stamped before the wedding so that your Maid of Honor or special family member can stick them in the mail once you leave for your honeymoon. When you get home there will be a mailbox full of love waiting for you to read!!

The key to making this theme really pop is to put thought into the details surrounding the cards. A great set of props on the guest book table, like trunks, suitcases, or a decorative mailbox will intrigue guests and make the table more appealing. Dont just slap some post cards down on a 6 foot table- Dress it up with fun props!!
