Wedding Invitations

By | Wedding Inspiration, Wedding Invitations, Wedding Planning | No Comments

With your fall wedding approaching it is time to start sending out your invitations! The invite is one of the first things your guests will see that dictate your wedding style. Whether it’s elegant, modern, shabby chic, or simple, the invitation sets the tone of your wedding.¬†123Lucky for you there are so many different tools and options to not only help in the selection of the style but also in invite etiquette. Recently, Wedding Paper Divas¬†posted a “How to” in addressing your wedding invitations. Instructions on addressing a married couple, unmarried couple, married couple with different last names, doctors and more are in the article as a guide for your addressing needs. For the titles that you are unsure of, there is a generator on their website that creates the address for you! (wow, how did they do it back in the day??)¬†11 10

Typically, your invites are sent out 6-8 weeks before the wedding. Gather your guest list and addresses well before then, and even keep a record of the labels so you can use for future thank-you notes, holiday cards, etc. After all of the effort you put into the invitation selection and wording, I promise you one of the best feelings is receiving your first RSVP card back in the mail! It’s a confirmation that, yes, this is happening; you are getting married!

Old Tradition with a Modern Twist

By | Hamilton Oaks Winery, Wedding Fashion, Wedding Inspiration, Wedding Planning, Wedding Reception Ideas, Weddings in California | No Comments

Let’s face it, there are not many couples looking to wed in a traditional church anymore. With this boom of modern weddings, more and more Brides and Grooms are tying the knot ¬†in outdoor ceremony venues. We are not knocking those beautiful church weddings (#katemiddleton), just stating the facts. Speaking of this new age, many Brides are opting to bring tradition to this “modern” ceremony. ¬†One way to do this is to bring the church outside! By bringing in church pews to an outdoor ceremony, you create the perfect blend of creativity and time-honored seating.

Are you familiar with those three little words that made so many of us ball like a baby and use a whole box of tissues?? “MOVE…THAT…BUS!” Extreme Home Makeover designer and carpenter, Paige Hemmis, had us swooning over the amazing houses the team would create and build. Now she is flipping houses with her fianc√© Jason Short in Las Vegas, NV.

Our VIP Team had a great time at the Universal Studios in California delivering and setting up for Paige and Jason’s big day! Here are some sneak peak photographs of the¬†wedding setup. The wedding airs June 22nd, 2015 @ 8:00PM on the Hallmark Channel.¬†onset onset3 onset2 onset4Click here for¬†Paige and Jason’s Wedding Website, which has¬†more info and videos. ¬†Tune in on Monday to see this traditional, DIY wedding with lots of twists!
