Invite Envy

Love the Sophia invite from le poetik studio on Etsy! It's perfect for an evening wedding with a hip reception at a steakhouse or downtown loft. 

For $50 they will create an invitation, rsvp card, reception info card, and accomodation card plus customization and 2 revisions per card!  Once you receive the file you can print your cards online here.  This route takes a bit more DIY, but a lot less cash!

Invite Envy

Adore this rustic invite by Borrowed & Blue Handmade Invitations on Etsy. 
This is perfect for a Southern wedding (imagine Savannah, Georgia in place of Cleveland, Ohio).  
It's especially adorable if out of town guests make up the majority of your guest list!

Welcome Welcome Welcome

Quinn and I got these romantic welcome bags courtesy of Wedding Chicks.  Since half of our guest list hails from across the US we want to make sure we give those that are so lovingly traveling deep to the heart of Texas for our nuptials something equally thoughtful and unique. 

Here is a close up of the design. You can get 20 for $100 here!
We are stuffing these with water, hangover cures - alka seltzer/aspirin, granola bars, mini liquors, chocolate, a starbucks giftcard, and a map of the area with the nearest starbucks starred. 
There are also talks of adding a koozie and local Texas beer!

Quirky Maids

A trend that seems to have come out of nowhere over the past couple years is letting your maids choose their own dress!  I love love love this trend.  It solves for a myriad of issues - such as cost, style and comfort.  The one glaring issue is how to not make it look like a total cluster when they all stand beside you. 
Tips on how to avoid this:
  • Pick a color palette such a pinks, jewel tones, or neutrals
  • Swing by Home Depot and pick paint strips that fit in the color palette and pass out to your maids to help with color matching when they shop.
  • Pick one fabric such as silk or select certain fabrics that pair well together like chiffon and cotton.  This will help the dresses look cohesive.
  • Decide how you feel about texture such as sequins, lace or jacquard.   
  • Peruse Pinterest and sites like Style Me Pretty and Green Wedding Shoes to find examples of Bridesmaid that did it right.  Send these to your bridesmaids.  I've put a couple of my favorites below. 
  • Consider finding specific dresses you like online and sending the links to your maids.  I found one of the dresses below on Nordstrom.
  • Last but not least reserve the right to veto and be available for guidance and shopping trips!

Being bridesmaid is a bit more than helping you drink champange and eat cake!  So make sure to show them some love on your special day and make them remember why they love you especially if you've been a bit crazy! Here are a few of my favorite things!

Grab some of these robes from Plum Pretty Sugar!  Perfect for getting ready on the big day and any day after!
