THEME: MODERN WHITE is all about elegant simplicity, clean line and no frills. Bright, crisp white is the only colour. Accessories are kept to a minimum and hair is fuss free. This beautiful bride is the epitomy of Modern white. Minimal. Modern. White.
I'm glad I was guided to this website. Amy Atlas Events. This lady is wonderful. Her brilliant design ideas and attention to details are just wonderful. Wonderful. This is what I want at the wedding. For more sweet-toothed delights have a look at her blog.
To be fair Todd Pellowe has taken pictures of the most beautiful people at the most beautiful time in their lives and yet, the moments he captures are moving. They make me laugh and cry and wish he was a little closer to Scotland in October next year... Enjoy.
Thinking of saving the money and doing all of the Wedding Stationary myself. While I was browsing for inspiration I came across this talented lady, Marina Chaccur and her work. Above is one of my favourite pieces. Visit her site and see the steps she's taken to get here.
Planning a wedding for a reunion of two nationalities, with relatives coming in from various locations, is always a little more complicated than if everyone lived in the same village so it's best to let everyone know well in advance what's happening and where. My time frame goes like this:
Save the Date cards & homemade gift: 1 year in advance Wedding Invitation: 6 months in advance Location Information Packet - including accomodation, sight seeing & a little bit of history with basic event timetable: 3 months in advance or upon receipt of RSVP Invitations to Rehearsal Dinner/Night: 6 weeks beforehand Event Timetable & Directions: 2 weeks beforehand
paper, card, inks, embossing powder, stamps, bulk or small amounts of 10, paper creasers - cellophane bags for making favours - paper punches, paper trimmers, scissors
But when it come to paper, I want to have felt it so here are some places in Edinburgh Paperchase on George St. Daintree Paper on Morningside Rd and their blog which has handy guides and templates
Ready made cards are:
quick & less time consuming- no designing, cutting, glueing and messing up!
cheaper than printed invitations
unique if you buy from small gift shops with start up designers who only print in small batches
ideal if you have a small wedding planned as each card will have to be written by hand! You could save yourself some time and print out smaller insert papers with your wording and personalise it with your handwritten signatures or small note
