For Sarah: Ultimate Game Night Wedding

Sarah mentioned having a game night themed wedding in the comments section and at Toast and Tables….it reminded me of a birthday party David Stark designed….hope this helps Sarah. He also did a game night article in an old issue of the now defunct Budget Living, I’ll try to dig it up next week after getting back from Rhode Island.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Untraditional seating cards

Wouldn’t it be kind of fun to use a rolodex for your seating cards instead of the traditional tented ones? These beautiful cards from Lovely Design would be perfect! Just type or handwrite the names and tables directly onto the cards, and let people search away!

A year ago today, and a binder

Chad and I were on vacation in New Orleans when he proposed to me exactly a year ago today!!!!….funny thing is I totally knew it was going to happen.

We happened on a stationery store on Magazine Street where I found these incredibly cute [and helpful] binders from Russel and Hazel and bought them for my wedding planning even before he popped the question! The large one I bought for all my images, the small one I bought for notes at meetings, and the tote I bought just because. I’ve always HATED those “cookie cutter” wedding planners they have in stores…too girly and frilly…so I just made my own. If you happen to get one of the wedding planners with a 3-ring binder as a gift, definitely use some of those sheets to help get you started in a new fabulous binder, then fill the rest with sheet protectors for your images.

More reader invites!

Diane from Circa1979 sent me some invites she designed for her own wedding…I love the separate RSVP cards! And hey, if anyone out there has got some cool, modern invites you’ve designed and want to show off, send them over!

I’m a graphic designer by day and a bride-to-be at night and took my invitations into my own hands. I bought my card stock and envelopes from Paper Source (my favorite paper store!), and lined my envelopes with Gypsy paper by Pasticcio Prints from Paper Mojo. I fed the card stock through my inkjet printer and created this set for our “big day!” I hand-illustrated both maps, scanned them into Photoshop and then edited them to fit the paper we were using. It was so satisfying and worth the extra work!
