So Many Cards!!

Wedding stationery can be a bit overwhelming! Let's take a moment to explain the different types of stationery associated with weddings.

Save-the-Date Cards give guests as much time as possible to plan to attend your wedding. The ideal time to sent save-the-date cards notifications is six (6) or seven (7) months prior.

Pew Cards are for guests who will sit in the first few rows of pews.

Seating Cards or Escort Cards are used to let guests know where they should be seated at the reception.

Response Cards are enclosed with the invitation to determine the number of people who will attend your wedding. Response cards are used to provide an exact head count for meals or for special seating arrangements.

A Reception Card provides the date, time and location for the reception. A Ceremony Card provides the date, time and location for the ceremony.

Rain Cards provide information about an alternate location in case of bad weather. Rain cards are used for an outdoor ceremony and/or reception.

Maps should include both written and visual instructions. Be mindful that guests may be coming from different locations. These are handed to guest at the ceremony if the reception is at a different location.
 
Ceremony Programs entails the sequence of events during the ceremony.
 
Announcements are sent to friends who are not invited to the wedding due to a limited guest list or because of travel distance. Announcements should include the day, month, year, city, and state where the ceremony took place. They should be mailed the day of or the day after the ceremony. {You are announcing that you were married!}
 
Thank you notes are given for every gift received. They are to be mailed within two (2) weeks of receiving a gift that arrives before that wedding, and within two (2) months after the honeymoon for gifts received after your wedding day.

10 Ways to Save $$$$

10 Best Ways to Cut Costs {according to Mindy Weiss..with my 2 cents added}
1. Trim the guest list: the fewer guests--the fewer tables--the fewer centerpieces, the fewer expenses
2. Choose a gorgeous setting: this cuts down on the cost of decorations
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.
