Invitation Information

Lasting Legacy

Let's talk invitations....

Begin creating your guest list as soon as possible. Ask both sets of parents for a list of people they would like to invite. Don't forget to make your own list with your fiance'. After the guest list have been finalized, make sure that all names are spelled correctly and that addresses are current. Do you want children to attend? If so, add their names to your guest list so that they are included in the count for the caterer. All children over the age of 16 should receive their own invitation.

Decide on the type of invitations that you would like to purchase. There are 3 types of invitations: traditional/formal (white, soft cream, or ivory), contemporary (personal reflection of the couple), and informal (handwritten or preprinted). The above invitation is an example of a contemporary style.

Order your invitations at least 4 months before the wedding. Allow an additional month for engraved invitations. Mail your invitations 6-8 weeks before the wedding. Order approximately 20% more stationery than your actual guest count.

10 Ways to Save $$$$

10 Best Ways to Cut Costs {according to Mindy Weiss..with my 2 cents added}

3. Use a reception site that is already equipped with tables, chairs, flatware, and staff: save on delivery fees
4. Start the wedding earlier in the day: an early wedding means less food...unless you and your future spouse are foodies!
5. Limit the alcoholic offerings to wine, beer, and a signature cocktail ...or skip the alcohol altogether!
6. Move the wedding from Saturday to Sunday: or possibly to a weekday. Venues are less expensive during the week.
7. Eliminate the champagne toast: guests can raise their punch, water, or tea in your honor
8. Hire a DJ instead of a band. 
9. Opt for standard sized invitations: irregular shaped invitations cost more to ship.
10. Skip favors: unless they are spectacular, unusual, and usable. Otherwise, the…

Class of 2018!

Congratulations to the class of 2018! I had the honor of setting up a graduation dinner for my god-daughter, Madisen, who also happens to be one of the valedictorians of her class.   Graduation day brings a roller coaster of emotions for the graduates and their families. It’s a time of celebration, achievement, anxiety, and fear of the unknown.
