First Anniversary After A Vintage Wedding

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. It can set the tone for the rest of your years, so it’s important to make it a priority. While paper can be easily ripped, crumbled, or destroyed, it can also be handled very carefully and carry vital information for years to come. It’s all up to the handler.  The Obvious Choice.  A love letter. DUH!  Maybe a little too obvious for some, but this gift idea is not to be dismissed easily. After an entire year together, it can be really lovely to revisit your [...]

Vintage Wedding Invitation Etiquette

Wedding Invitation Etiquette  It can feel a bit overwhelming when you start to think about your vintage wedding invitations. They are the first impression your guests will receive, and it may feel like there are a million rules you need to follow and research before sending them.  Have no fear! Your questions are answered here!  Do I only order enough for my guest list? Do I need extra? Well, it depends on a few factors. 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”). If you are sending out some invitations to friends, and they happen to be roommates, they should each receive their own invitation. If kids are NOT invited, make that clear by dropping the “and Family” if they have children. If anyone over 18 is invited, but younger kids are not, [...]

What is an “Unplugged Wedding?”

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. You want genuine guest reactions and interactions documented! And you certainly don’t want Aunt Edna standing in the way of your photographer as he/she tries to catch the groom’s face as you walk down the aisle. That will be [...]

Wedding Planning and “In-Between” Friends

The “In-Between” Friends And Weddings Choosing your bridal party is a really tricky process. Chances are you have friends from all different times of your life, and you feel close them all in different ways. Not to mention, siblings, cousins, family, etc. Are you afraid of hurting someone’s feelings? Nervous not asking them would change your relationship? Ultimately, your bridal party is up to you, and no one else should influence that. But of course we all have those “in-betweeners”. Not quite bridal party friends, but people you still want to include on your big day.  Now, as mentioned in another blog post, there are ways to include people in the planning process leading up to your wedding day. But this is more about the actual wedding. You don’t want to insult your friend by asking them to make you pom-poms to decorate, but not actually including them besides that. [...]

How to Create the Perfect Hashtag for Your Wedding

Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter, even Facebook is inundated with hashtags these days. Not only do they help you group posts and find relevant information that may pertain to an interest, but when used in certain ways, you can keep a digital photo album of sorts.

How to Involve Family In Your Wedding

Ways to Involve Family In Your Wedding These days, traditional wedding involvement roles have taken a back seat. The old traditions of how a family would be included in on the festivities are dwindling as couples become more independent in life, and therefore in their planning process.  But where does this leave your relatives? It does NOT have to leave them in the dark on the participation front. There are so many different and meaningful ways to be sure they feel included. The plus side to this? It can also help to alleviate some of the stress that planning will cause you. Let’s get creative with it: The Proposal The involvement does NOT have to begin with the actual wedding!
