T-Minus 43 days

That is until the BIG Bridal show here in Cleveland.  If you are engaged or will be in 43 can't miss this one!  It is by far the biggest and best Bridal show you can attend in the Cleveland and surrounding areas.  It will host the most vendors in any category you may be looking for.  Of course I brag about the show because we will be there, but really you should too!  It is hosted by the wonderful Today's Bride.  We are especially excited because it will be our big debut in the Cleveland area.  Relocating to a new state with no local ties is difficult. It's not stopping us....we have big plans for 2013!  We have the most jobs booked going into the new year that we ever have and we hope this show really sets us over the top.  This won't be the last time you hear about the show...just throwing it out there since you can buy your tickets now :)  Don't miss it, January 12th from 2-8pm and 13th from 10-5pm.

Wedding Tip Tuesday ~ 11.27.12

This Tuesday we would like to discuss defining your wedding style.  So obviously an invitation is meant to tell your guests the date, time, location of your upcoming event.  BUT more importantly it is supposed to set the tone for your wedding.  It is the first glimpse guests will get into what their experience will be like on your big day.  Before you even begin to shop you should have a clear understanding of what you want your big day to be like.  Rustic and vintage, glam and modern, classic and elegant - in doing so you can now get invitations that reflect the feel you are trying to create.  People will understand that they should not be showing up in a gown to a back yard reception or with no tie and jacket to a black tie affair.  Plus, the more unique you are the more excited guests will be to attend your wedding to see all you have planned.  Once you have your wedding style begin your search for the perfect invitations. As a custom designer I am a little biased when it comes to designing an invite to fit perfectly with your wedding....everyone should have the perfect invite.  Just do your research before you get any old invite, there are SOOO many options out there.

Happy Wedding Tip Tuesday!
The invitation is your guests' first peek at your wedding style. Along with listing the location and time of day, the invitation -- and, more specifically, its style -- hints to the formality of your wedding. You should have an idea of the type of event you're throwing -- classic and elegant, or glam and modern -- before you start shopping for stationery, so you can choose an invitation style that hits the same note. Then browse wedding invitation photos and stationers' websites and gather inspiration so you can give your stationer an idea of what you like.
