october is quickly approaching (can you believe it?!) and with it brings cooler weather, pretty leaves and breast cancer awareness month. meant to be sent is dedicated to supporting this cause, and to help out will be donating a percentage of all invites booked and completed in the month of october to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.

book now and help a great cause! you can also learn more about the organization and make your own donations at their website.



the envelope, please…

while the envelope is the most anticipated item at an awards show, a good amount of people forget about the envelope and its importance as part of the invitation. keep in mind it is the first thing that your guests will see and it sets the tone for the rest of the invitation and can be just as stunning if dressed up just right! consider having a coordinating design printed along with your return and guest address printing, or include the ever popular custom wrap label—these are a real show stopper and all the rage right now!

another great way to show your envelopes some love, is to have a custom stamp designed that coordinates with the rest of the ensemble. this will not only look great but makes for a really pulled together look and is the perfect finishing touch!


beach elegance announcement

this coordinated with the beach elegance invite and served as both an announcemnt of their marriage and an invite to a local reception after the destination wedding. these are a great way to still let everyone know about your special day even if the actual wedding is a more intamite event!

a new year…new stuff

whew. it has been quite a year and it is definitely ending on a busy note! as this one comes to a close, i am super excited for the new year to begin….i have some exciting plans for the blog and main site! so stay tuned for new developments…

a sneak peek: i am planning on incorporating idea and inspiration boards into my blog and site. i just love them! and they are a great way to both inspire and capture ideas.

i sometimes do an idea board for my clients to illustrate a general design direction… here is an example of a very simple one i put together to give an overall feel for an invitation and show the materials to be used…some will be like this, while others will be more a collage of images gathered to capture ideas for a “look” or color scheme to inspire your invitation design…

{ TIP } if you are so inclined to gather your own images, this is also a great way to communicate what you are looking for and the type of event you are planning!

(the one below is more a way for me to quickly show a bride pieces of an invitation design for general direction)
