Create Beautiful Wedding Invitations

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.

However, are you aware of what it takes to develop your own wedding invitations with ease?

Here at I Thee Wed, we are so grateful with the opportunity to assist brides and grooms in planning and coordinating their big day. 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 décor 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. If you are still on the hunt for a greater area Cincinnati wedding planner, please contact us today to schedule your consultation.

Your Wedding “Thank You” Notes Should Be Written to Perfection

So many guests, friends and family alike, have gathered from near and far to celebrate your big day with you! You have all enjoyed a great meal, delicious cake and then you jetted off onto your honeymoon. After returning, you have unpacked your suitcases, and opened all of your lovely gifts, so now it is time to sit down and write the perfect “thank you” notes.  

Does a "Day-Of Coordinator" only show up on the wedding day?

"I've done all my own planning and want a "day-of" coordinator but can't find one who will show up on the wedding day only !  Why?" There's probably a lot of confusion amongst engaged couples because of the term "day-of" coordinator. If you end up speaking to someone who says they will only show up on the wedding day and save you lots of money because of it, please stay clear of them! Many wedding planners may label their coordination as "day-of" wedding coordination, but there is far more involved than just showing up on the wedding day when it comes to a professional wedding planner who knows what she/he is doing.

A 1 1/2 to 2 hour timeline meeting typically kicks off

Answers to Brides Most Frequently Asked Questions

Here we are....Day 6, our final day of answering your most frequently asked questions here are answers to questions 9 and 10! Question 9: When Do We Mail the Invitations.    Traditionally speaking, wedding invitations should be mailed out 6-8 weeks before the wedding. If you get anxious and mail them 10-12 weeks prior to the wedding, you might be taking a chance with your guests seeing they have plenty of time to respond and put the invitation down with intentions of RSVPing later and then they forget. Only with destination weddings should you mail your invitations 3 months out. Make sure your RSVP date is one month prior to the wedding, allowing you time to call folks who haven't rsvp'd. Part 2: Do We Need to Note the Dress Code on the Invitations?  In many cases your invitation style will depict to your guests how formal your ceremony will be. A beach wedding invitation is going to have a much different style than a more formal, traditional invitation. However, if y
