Be inspired: Miami Skyline

We are wrapping up this busy but amazing week with an inspiration post based on our very own gorgeous Miami skyline, inspired by a photo from the incredible Maggie Stolzberg.  We kept this wedding invitation design soft with dusty neutrals, and added just a hint of deep blue to the edge.

Everything you need to know about save the dates!

With all the winter and spring weddings coming up, we’ve been asked a lot of questions about save the dates.  Well, friends, we are here to help! save-the-date-1

When should I start thinking about save the dates?

You’ll want to send them out as soon as you reserve your venue and date.  Typically, this is done 6-8 months before the event, but can be up to a year beforehand if you’re inviting many out-of-town guests.

How many save the dates should I order?

When deciding how many save the dates to order, the first step is getting your guest list together.  Remember that you’ll just send one save the date to each couple or family, not to each individual, so typically you’ll need about 60% of the total number of guests you’re inviting.  We recommend ordering 10-20 extra for those last-minute guest list additions, and so you’ll have a few left over as keepsakes.


What should I include on my save the dates?

The must-haves for a save the date are name(s), event type, date, and city.  Many opt to include accommodations information as well, so out-of-town guests can make their travel arrangements early.  And if you have a website for your event, be sure to include it on the save the date as well - that way, your guests can keep up with new information as it becomes available.


Do I have to think about invitations now, too?

That is totally up to you.  Many save the dates are sent before the event theme and colors are picked out, so we often recommend that you choose a save the date design that you like and not worry about it fitting the rest of your event.  However, if you’d prefer for the save the date to be a glimpse of what’s to come, then you may want to start by picking out your invitation design first and then choose a coordinating save the date.

Be inspired: Garden Cocktails

It's thyme for our weekly inspiration post!  This week's invitation design, inspired by a photo of the Floridian Weddings relaunch party by Vitalic Photo, shows that a one-color design can hold its own, too.  We spruced it up with sunshine yellow edge paint, and imagine this design paired with a simple, organic patterned liner. Want to see what we would come up with for an invitation design based on your inspiration board?  Leave a comment below with a link to your Pinterest, and we'll put something together for you!

Be inspired: Sparkly Celebration

We hope everyone had a great fourth of July!  We're not ready to be done celebrating, so we're keeping that spirit alive with this week's inspired invitation design, featuring a photo by Liga Photography.  This invitation would be gorgeous in black letterpress ink and silver foil.  We love the monochromatic look with a bright pop of color on the edge - and the design shows that fun & festive design is totally possible without losing elegance!

Be inspired: Sweet French Rose

The moment we saw this photo from Chelsey Boatwright Photography, we knew it was the one for this week's inspiration post.  The sweet, soft, slightly modern take on roses with coral, peach, and hints of yellow and green, is totally our style - and how gorgeous is that cake?  We envision this custom designed invitation to be paired with a subtle quilt-like envelope liner inspired by the overall cake pattern.  Love! 2014.06.27
