Joel & Anna's May 12th wedding in Marysville, OH was one for the books, especially since Joel is my cousin and one of my best friends! I'm so excited to welcome Anna into the family and I'm thrilled to call her my cousin-in-law (is that even a thing haha)?! Regardless, the day was absolutely beautiful and the weather couldn't have been better for photos because there was impeccable lighting all day!

What to Expect When Mailing Your Wedding Invitations Through USPS

What to Expect When Mailing Your Wedding Invitations Through USPS

This blog post is meant to serve as a quick guide for USPS related policies surrounding wedding invitations and save the dates, or really any piece of mail for that matter. However, I am not an employee of USPS, so for all your official questions please refer to USPS.com or visit your local USPS location.

The US Postal Service has a mind of its own. Actually, it has several minds of its own because every branch and physical location of the USPS just so happens to operate a little differently. Really convenient, right? This means that what one USPS location might tell you, might differ at the location that’s just 2 miles down the street. This makes mailing your wedding invitations (and having ALL of them show up with no problems) feel like winning the lottery.

5 Ways Hiring a Custom Wedding Invitation Designer Helps You

Brides! I know, I know.

You might be able to find a gorgeous wedding invitation on Etsy, Minted, PaperSource, etc., but have you taken the time to think about how much custom artwork could help boost your wedding invitation experience?

Wedding invitations are just as important as the rest of your wedding day, especially because they are helping to set the scene and mood for your guests…

What Brides Need to Know About Letterpress Wedding Invitations

What Brides Need to Know About Letterpress Wedding Invitations

I have so many brides that are interested in having their wedding invitations letterpress printed without having any awareness for what the cost will be or the process that occurs to create the final product! To tell you the truth, I was one of those brides myself. When I was planning my wedding in early 2015, I knew I wanted letterpress invitations and I wasn’t anywhere near being prepared for the cost of getting them printed. I also wanted watercolor flowers on my invitation, which is a whole different problem because that has to be printed digitally first (and I of course had no idea that the printing methods were any different).

I was lucky enough to work with some very gracious people along the way that helped me figure out what I wanted…

How to Choose Bridesmaids for Your Wedding Party

How to Choose Bridesmaids for Your Wedding Party

One of the first things I started thinking about after getting engaged (after my wedding invitations, of course) was who I would be choosing to be my bridesmaids. I was the first in my group of college friends to get married, and I hardly knew anyone else who had recently gotten married, which meant I had no input or advice from anyone on how to choose my bridesmaids. So I got to work creating my list, literally, a day or two after I had gotten engaged.

You might consider this decision to be proactive and good planning. However, I’m here to say that choosing your bridesmaids can be put on the back burner for a minute. And here’s why: from the moment you are engaged to the moment you get married (whether that’s 6 months or a year and a half) a lot changes. And I mean a lot!
