I posted a few of these ideas from my phone (the top pic is from my phone) but thank you to Jennifer Bowen for these professional images.  The bride and groom live in New York City, so the escort cards directed guests to their tables, which were named after Lindsay & Brian’s favorite NYC destinations.  At each seat, the place cards said “Eat” in a specific color (depending on what their dinner selection was).    The Drink Sign told the background information behind their signature drink, and the program was wrapped in a “Be Married” band.  I am hoping to post a picture of her invitation soon!

One of our (In Awe Weddings) recent weddings had spectacular decor.   The ballroom at the Boulders was draped in white fabric and lit with special lighting and snowflakes, creating a magical winter wonderland.  So in order to set the tone, Dane picked a light silver pocket from Envelopments, and we used snowflake artwork and Swarovski crystals to make them sparkle.  We added a touch of light blue to add interest and color.  All of the papers were shimmery and wonderful.  We designed round menus and placed them under clear glass chargers.

Twin Lens documentary photographers captured incredibly amazing photos of the day, and they were nice enough to take some of the invitations as well.  It is always a pleasure to work with them.

I haven’t received the pics from the photographer from Lindsay and Brian’s wedding at Paradise Valley Country Club, but I wanted to share some of their fun paper products.  Lindsay had great ideas!  It was a beautiful day and a beautiful location; flawlessly coordinated by Sandy of In Awe Weddings

I have been terrible about blogging, but I will hopefully have lots of photos to share from our busy winter season!  I had the best year ever for Christmas Cards, so I have some fun designs to share.

I haven’t had a chance to post this, but thank you so much to Emily of EME Photography for sending me the photos.  I have been enjoying an abnormally busy summer, so I appreciate everyone being so patient with me.  

Anshan and Rob were a sweet and wonderful couple from back East.  They had a beautiful day and a wonderfully fun color scheme of fuschia and apple green.  Their save the date was SO cute.  We used the adorable cactus artwork from Envelopments.  For their wedding invitation, they chose one of the fabulous new pocket card invitations, which I of course forgot to have Emily photograph.  The natural artwork was created by a talented, graphic artist friend.  Anshan had a mix of girly, fun, happy colors with a natural earthy element.  Enjoy a few photos from their wedding day!

June 15, 2011

I grew up in a small town in Kansas.  It was important to show appreciation in a tight knit community.  Parents did business with each other, kids played together… we all saw each other every day.  After birthdays, graduation, Christmas, etc., my mom would sit me down, hand me some pretty note cards, and have me write a personal note to each person that had given me a gift.  I am sure I tried to get out of it, but I remember trying to convey my thankfulness for each gift… mainly so I would get another the next year.  Now that I’ve grown up (a little bit), I love receiving thank-you notes.  I save some of them because I am weird; but I also save them because they remind me that I need to send them to others… I want other people to have reassurance that their generosity- whether it be a physical gift or a gift of their time- didn’t go unnoticed. 

I realize that a new trend in wedding thank you notes is to buy a pre-printed “thank you for the wedding gift” message.  If you purchase custom thank you notes from Flossy, however, the inside will provide plenty of room for a special personalized message from YOU.  I read in an etiquette guide that couples have 1 year after the wedding to complete their thank-you notes.  I recommend sending them immediately after receiving the gift… or less than a month or so after the wedding.  It’s also nice to put how you’re enjoying using said gift… “We really have put the beautiful throw you gave us to good use… it has kept us very warm on our movie nights!”.

We can create stylish notes with a monogram or wedding photo.  It’s a great way to put your beautiful wedding photos to good use.   Thank Yous are also a great shower gift!  I included a few photos of some we created in 2010-2011.
