Turkish Tulips: The New Letterpress Design- Lale

Eastern European influences with a floral twist.

Romantic influences are apparent here on our new design for the 2015 spring season and beyond. Lale is the new motif from our floral gallery and the images are taken from traditional Turkish folk art. The tulip is a prized flower, resembling the Turkish turbans worn by the country’s men. This detail is found on clothing, in holiday festivities, and throughout all celebrations. Choose this design for your wedding day to impress your friends and family.

These close up details show the many small and elaborate floral details worked into the tulips themselves. A classic Turkish look turns these invitations into a destination wedding stationery set for your big day. The traditional tones are able to create a look made for a multicultural wedding.

Would you like to dress your unique wedding suite up with a special detail? Add a belly band with vibrant colors to show off the motif. A full set with additional insert cards can really make the day a special one with all the wonderful wedding announcements.

If you would love to see Lale in person, order your free samples today! We love the Turkish tulip design and have created a Pinterest inspiration board to help fuel your wedding planning. We can’t wait to see you there!

Multicultural weddings are fun affairs and allow the couple getting married to explore their options.

Gay fusion weddings are incredibly beautiful, fun, and unique.

Fighting the Cold: How to Stay Healthy for Your Winter Wedding

Winter is almost here and so is your wedding! You show a love for elegance, family, and romance and your wedding not only rings in the new year, but the changing of seasons, the beloved holidays, and the cold cold months with chilly nights and snowy mornings. Unfortunately, along with all these wonderful qualities, winter also is the bearer of flu season, cold sores, and scratchy throats. The crisp, dry air and streets slick with ice and rain make your immune system frazzled and your footing a little unsure.

It’s important to focus on your health inside as well as outside! We know you’re working hard to feel comfortable in your dress, so plan on adding a few extra steps to keep your energy up and the winter sickness at bay.

The number one rule for staying healthy is to eat your rainbow! Fruits and vegetables come in all colors, and by grouping them by color, you can tell what part of the body they’re helping! Don’t just eat your greens! Orange and yellow veggies boost your immune system and purple foods fight against cell damage. This wonderful infographic shows you what other colors and foods you’ll love.

Don’t stress. We know, that sounds impossible. But here’s the tip: stay active often without overworking yourself. By staying active, your body burns calories more efficiently than if you binge workout. A short trot around the office every hour, a series of stretches whenever your think of it, and even an attempt to stand instead of sit will be good for you. Knock off the exercise two or three hours before bed, drink tea, and turn the lights off before you hit the hay. We mean no TV, laptop or phone. Not only will this let you sleep better but will help you stay away from email and stressful decision making that will keep you up all night.

Bundle up. We know you might be dying to display your gams in a short dress or don a sleeveless gown, but we recommend warmer wear. Sickness is sneaky, and while you might feel fine during the ceremony, if you try your luck with a chilly outfit, you might be getting the shivers during the reception. If you’re standing by your decision to bear all, perhaps a snug pair of warm boots and a huge coat to get your from place to place will do. Just don’t risk standing in the cold outdoors.

Avoid the booze as much as you can. The sugars will depress your immune system and make you more susceptible to flus and colds. Beers and cocktails will work against your sleep schedule, your food cravings, and your progress during workouts. Need I say more?

So stay warm, well fed, and calm for a no-stress, good-health wedding! Don’t let your immune system get you down. Try a few easy boosts to naturally and easily take care of your body for the best day of your life.
