Your wedding invitations will be the first glimpse that your guests will get of your big day. From your color scheme to articulate design, it is important that they are created to represent your wedding theme. With many textures of paper to choose from, along with just the right font, many little details will work together to create your invitation suite.

That’s why we have gathered some tips for you to help you in creating beautiful wedding invitations. If you are currently lacking inspiration, be sure to continue reading to learn more:

·         Create your design. Your invitations will all begin with a vision. It is important to take your wedding color scheme and theme into consideration in order to develop your design. You will want to create a cohesive appearance, so choosing a bright orange invitation when you are presenting a black and white chic event would probably not be the best chioce. Keep in mind how you would like your wedding to appear, and infuse that d├ęcor into your invitations. Once you have chosen your design, you can then move onto creating the finer details.
·         Choose your texture. Paper comes in many forms, so you are certainly not limited to the flimsy printer paper, as that should definitely be your very last choice. Cardstock paper is a great option, as it presents a firm, yet elegant appearance. In addition to the quality of your paper, you will also want to decide if you would like a shiny, glossy finish, or a more matte look. For a rustic themed event, matte would be ideal. While a more formal wedding would best benefit from a nice shine.
·         Develop your suite. In most cases, the invitation is not the only piece of stationary that is sent to your guests. You can create an invitation suite that will cover all of your stationery needs. Incorporate invitations, gift registries, RSVP cards, and any additional details that would assist your guests in attending your big day. Knowing exactly what you would like within your suite will help to better prepare you for creating yours.

Every detail, down to the invitations, is important for the creation of your big day. Here at I Thee Wed, we are ready to assist you in your planning your gorgeous wedding day.

A Venue Coordinator vs. A Wedding Coordinator

Unfortunately, things haven't changed much in the wedding industry regarding the confusion between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Couples still seem very confused between these two roles and end up not hiring a wedding coordinator after speaking with their venue. Their day ends up in disappointment because they assumed they would have that one, key person to go to and rely on for their entire wedding day. Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.

So, when you begin visiting venues and you learn that a venue has an event coordinator who tells you that you do not need to hire a wedding coordinator/planner, ask them if they will show up at the hotel while you and your girls are getting ready earlier in the day. Ask if they will be with you …

Emily + Tom

One of the perks of being in this business as a planner is the opportunity that we're given to really get to know our clients. I worked with such a special family last season and felt privileged and honored to be their planner. I felt like "one of the family" with this bride's family. The closeness and openness they have with each other and the way they are enjoying life is so refreshing and inspiring. They possess a unique family closeness that I can only hope for with my family as my children grow older. Emily was so easy-going and appreciative when it came to planning her wedding, as well as with the particulars that her mom and dad expressed. Her groom Tom was equally as expressive. These two are so much in love and I had so much fun working with them!

I love this pic of the girls kissing their mama!

In case you're wondering what this is, they are "Rolling on the River"!
