1. Why It Works Wednesday: Red White & Blue Wedding Invitations Beyond Patriotic Love

    In honor of our nation's big day tomorrow, I am going a bit Patriotic with this week's Why It Works Wednesday tackling a lovely wedding invitation suite {a first for WIWW!} from Pink Piggy Design. I came across this gorgeous suite thanks to a feature from Oh So Beautiful Paper, who were feeling a bit patriotic themselves! Teaming up with Utah based photographer, Kate Osborne, the team created a petite styled shoot around paper goods including some really cute food decor items that pay proper homage to old glory! There are some really wonderful touches that come together to make this invitation suite as perfect as it can be: Color, Pattern, & Font Type, are the main elements that really make this American inspired beauty sing!

  2. 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.

  3. Combining Thank You’s & Holiday Cards

    So Truly & I are currently in a funny place, time wise, regarding the need to send out our Thank You notes for our wedding, & running into the holiday season, aka Christmas cards! In truth, we did get married at the end of this past August, so perhaps this makes us already behind on our Thank You's, but I do know couples that actually didnt send anything for a full year, reserving to send more of a One Year Anniversary Thank You Update. So, are we late/lazy, running about on time, who knows! I suppose in truth its subjective. I am sure there is some golden etiquette rule book somewhere, but I feel we all should have the freedom to make it all our own. Just as long as the Thank You's do indeed go out mind you! Feel free to yell at me for my lack of strict etiquette enforcement
