1. Combining Thank You’s & Holiday Cards {Part 2}

    Last year I touched on an issue that, as it turned out, there were some strong opinions on. Let me give you a quick recap, a la TV show 30 sec bring you up to speed montage. Our wedding was at the very end of August, after dealing with post wedding things, honeymoon, etc, we started to slide into the Holiday Season. My work, at the time, becomes extremely demanding, to put it mildly, around the holidays, so hand writing a billion Thank You's was not really an option, at least not if we wanted to be timely. There in laid our paradox.... Be tardy and send the Thank You Cards after the holidays, OR Combine our Christmas Cards WITH our Thank You Cards.

  2. Three Pre-Ceremony ‘To Haves’ That You’ll Thank Me For

    Pretty much the moment you get engaged the people around you will feel the need to impart on you their opinions & wisdom about what to do and what not to do at your wedding. Some of it will be common sense {you'd think}, some things will be beyond your control, some completely outlandish & others will indeed be genuine pearls that really ought to be listened to. An important thing to realize when people are throwing these gems your way, is that more then likely they had experiences in the past where someone did {or didn't} get it quite right and it made an impression. Think about it. You yourself have attended a wedding or two and I am sure there are things that left an imprint on your, good or bad. Things to learn from.

  3. Out With The Old Escort Card, In With The New

    What I am about to say may make me a bit of a cad, but here I we go all the same.... I am over the standard escort cards & more so the same basic ways they are being displayed! My feeling on this particular element of decor, as they are indeed a piece of decor themselves, is that they are often an after thought, something that can be printed out on a card and crudely displayed moving guests onto the next thing. While it is true, escort cards aren't typically something that command attention, however what if you could step out side of the basic & deliver something that will be yet another element that can floor your guest, adding a killer weapon to your decor arsenal?

  4. Iconic New York City Engagement Photo Session

    I have been going back and forth for a bit now about whether or not I wanted to do a post with my own engagement photos. I have a few reasons for my wavering with the primary reason being, as I mentioned in an earlier post, it actually wasn't me that wanted engagement photos. I know, sort of surprising right? Fact of the matter was, it was Mid-November, ramping up into my busiest time of the year work wise, & I didn't have the proper time to myself to really think about what I wanted to do engagement photo wise, as well as being unsure exactly what was the 'voice' for our paper items was going to be. Truly really pushed for a photo to go along with our Save The Dates & so without knowing what I really wanted to get out of them, we decided to give it a go all the same.
