Photo Booth Save the Date

by admin on July 11, 2013 in Budget, Invitations with 1 Comment

Sending Save the Dates was a no-brainer for Chris and me because our wedding was in Southern California, but my college friends were from around Connecticut, his high school friends were from Northern California, his family was from South Carolina and Georgia, and his family friends (who were like his family since his parents were missionaries abroad) were from across the world. If we wanted all our guests to come, we had to give them ample time to look for travel deals and save up money.

We did not want to spend a lot on our Save the Date since there would be an invitation to follow, but we also didn’t want to waste the time, effort, and money on sending something not worth receiving. According to us, that would have been something sloppy, something tacky, or even something that was quality but was outside of our personalities.

Designing A “Save the Date”

by admin on May 28, 2013 in Invitations, Logistics with No Comments

The best thing about Save the Dates is that they get you on the calendar of those whom you desperately want at your wedding without demanding you to have all your details figured out. Invitations get you on the calendar too, but because you normally have to wait so long to work out all the details of timing, venue, travel accommodations, etc., you might not be the first one to reserve that special date in your families’ and friends’ calendars.

Invitations IV: Weighing the Cost

by admin on March 7, 2013 in Budget, Invitations with No Comments

invitations are oversized or have too many heavy inserts, the postage is more expensive. Be sure to take an invitation to the post office to weight it for the exact postage before stamping and sending out 200 invitations.

Invitations III: Making Them Personal

by admin on March 5, 2013 in Invitations, Scripture with 54 Comments

Lord, thank You that we have a wedding to announce! You are the God of love, the God of celebration, and the God of joy. Show us how we can offer a spirit of love, celebration, and joy through our invitations so that our guests would be deeply touched by the love of Christ that is in our relationship. Help us to think of an idea that represents who we are, that is affordable, that is memorable, and that is logistically feasible. We want our wedding to be a worship ceremony for You and a celebration of Who You are in our lives, so please help us choose invitations that would make You proud. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Invitations II: Finding the Words

If you are having a traditional or formal wedding, there is invitation etiquette that you should follow.  Having said that, however, even invitation etiquette experts are constantly disagreeing on the rules, so don’t allow yourself to be overwhelmed by confusing wedding legalism.

Invitations I: Setting the Tone for Your Wedding

by admin on February 19, 2013 in Invitations with No Comments

If you aren’t sure how to start choosing an invitation, take inventory of the “tone setting” details of your overall wedding experience. What season is your wedding in? What is your venue like? At what time of day will it take place? What attire would you prefer for your guests? What attire is the bridal party wearing? What are your centerpieces and other decorations like?

Worshipful Invitations

by admin on October 23, 2012 in Guest List, Invitations with 1 Comment

Can you even imagine how much glory to God you can bring by praying over your guests by name? Not only would you be committing your invitations to God by focusing on Him while you make them, but you would also be preparing your guests to meet the Lord at your wedding in ways that only He can ordain. They might never know that you prayed for them, but I guarantee it will make a profound difference in their hearts whether they can attend your wedding or not.

Starring the Bride-To-Be

by admin on July 24, 2012 in Bridal Party, Invitations with 2 Comments

Most bridal showers have a theme.  Usually it’s along the lines of a type of gift such as a Lingerie Shower or an Around the Clock shower (guests buy a gift that coordinates with an hour of the day).  Other times the theme is based on the location or the food selection. Who doesn’t love…continued here

Save-the-Date Scratcher

by admin on January 19, 2012 in Invitations with 1 Comment

I love Save the Date ideas that are more than just a classy cardstock.  My friend recently showed me one she had received, which was entirely D-I-Y. A scratcher card.  Who doesn’t love scratching off silver stuff to find out what’s underneath? This bride took a simple, white card stock with punched edging and she…continued here
