Wedding Favors That Put the Fun in Functional

Thanking your guests for attending your wedding doesn’t have to be expensive.  Reception favors are pretty customary and often times they can be done on even the strictest budget.

We all remember the tulle-wrapped Jordan almonds right? Let’s face it, they probably ended up in the garbage.  While the tossing the bouquet is, and forever will be, tradition, we can help you put an end to the tossing of the boring wedding favor. Here are a few functional favor ideas that are guaranteed to survive longer than those almonds.

Personalized bottle cap openers are a practical wedding favor everyone will use.

Beautifying Your Wedding Invitations with Custom Paper

Now that you’re engaged and ready to choose your beautiful wedding invitations, let’s discuss some added features many people tend to overlook.  Every bride has a color scheme for her wedding.  Coordinating your wedding invitations can mean you select red ink because your colors are red and gold. What if I told you it doesn’t have to end there?

Custom paper is a popular trend in the wedding invitation scene. With all the colors, textures, and thicknesses, why keep it ordinary?

letterpress paper color choicesOur standard letterpress paper is 100% recycled cotton, soft in texture and rich in style.

Multicultural Wedding Invitations
Blending With Bilingual

Deciding how to blend cultures on your wedding invitations can be a challenge.  Sometimes, it’s easier said than done.  With a few of our tips and a little extra planning, we can get you on the right track.

Before deciding on your invitation layout, it’s best for both of you to familiarize yourself with each other’s cultural traditions and beliefs. Trust me, it will be fun and definitely worth the effort.  Choose which ones are most important to both of you and how you would like to incorporate them on your invitation.  Some couples choose to have multiple ceremonies.  If this is something you will be doing, think about listing both events on one invitation or adding insert cards, this is a great way to save time and money.

All too often there are family and friends who travel from other parts of the world to attend the wedding.  How will you accommodate possible language barriers? You certainly do not want them to feel left out or segregated.  Providing bilingual wedding invitations is an easy way to avoid this confusion. That way, everyone will feel like an important part of your special day.

Wedding Day Items: Signs, Menus and Place Cards

I really enjoy weddings, but what I look forward to most is the reception.  I have a certain weak spot for all the creative little details.  After all, who doesn’t love the perfect little signs at the food table, the sweet sayings on the themed favor tags, or the cute little place cards with your name on them.

Remembering these little details can easily fall between the cracks.  Whether you choose to have a formal reception or a “laid back anything goes” marshmallow roast, you’ll want to get crackin’ on wedding day items as soon as possible.
