One Year Down- The Paper Anniversary Okay, okay, so maybe this is a bit on the traditional side, but some people still keep these traditions alive! It can be fun to try and get creative with old school ideas.  But first of all- Why the Paper Anniversary?  Well, it could be said that paper can be fragile, much like the first year of marriage.

If you’re inviting an entire family, you should only need one for that household (addressed “The Smith Family”, or “Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Family”).

Is an “Unplugged Wedding” For You? An “unplugged wedding” is when you ask your guests to refrain from taking pictures or video during your big day. It’s a fairly new concept, developed for a few different reasons since the development of cell phone cameras has evolved immensely in recent years. Everyone is going to want that perfect shot on their latest iPhone!  The Positives? A big reason why people choose to do this is so that guests do not interfere with the professional photographers. Let’s be real; you are paying BIG bucks for those professional pictures, and you don’t need them littered with people holding their smartphones out in the background.
