Wedding Planning Cutie

Last week I was playing around online, googling for wedding stuff and and getting ideas for new designs I’m working on.  One thing lead to another, and I came across this cute face:

wedding planning
The only thing brighter than Gigi’s smile will be your enthusiasm to work with her.

This is Gigi, from Not So Traditional Bride.  She’s a wedding planner in the Triangle area of North Carolina (Raleigh, Durham, Central NC) and she’s pretty rad.

Gigi has been planning events for almost ten years, so she knows what’s what.  She and I have been chatting back and forth and her experience planning her own wedding is very similar to mine.  Here she is, in her own words:

“Years ago, I was planning my own wedding and I found that most wedding vendors did not want to deal with me because I had a small budget and a small guest count. It really put a damper on my wedding planning process and I wanted to give Brides the opportunity to not only save some serious money but have their wedding day turn out their way.”

That is so similar to my experience with wedding vendors when I was planning my wedding!  I feel strongly that a wedding should reflect the couple and their personalities, not just be another cookie cutter run of the mill event, and Gigi’s approach to wedding planning matches that philosophy to a T.

Gigi has a background in floral arranging and event catering, two staples of the wedding industry.  Her experience in these areas have given her the experience needed to assist with bouquets and boutonnieres and table top design, as well as act as a liaison between the couple and vendors.  Her specialty is day of coordination and weddings on a budget – in fact, she loves DIY brides and can provide some crafty goodness as well as whatever else is needed.  Gigi believes (as do I) that a wedding doesn’t need to cost the same as your college tuition to pull off.  The sole purpose of her business is to help the bride – or groom – achieve her/his perfect day, her/his way.

If you are in the Triangle area, I strongly suggest you get in touch with Gigi.  She’s easy to get along with, is really creative and knows this business inside out.  Whatever your needs are, she can help.  As she says,

“Weddings should be fun! I think more couples need to be reminded of that. So should the people working in the wedding industry!”

Foil Me Once, Shame On You

Foil invitations – they’re all the rage right now.  And I get it, they’re beautiful and funky and it’s really hard not to love them.  It’s something that I’ve wanted to offer my clients, but being a small business owner I wasn’t really sure how.  Well… last night I did some experimenting, and things went very well.

Gold foil invites! The top is VERY shiny, and you can see the brush strokes from the reactive paint I used. It’s pretty awesome, and gives a slightly edgy feel. I LURVE IT.

This was my first attempt, and I’m pretty happy with the results.  I’ll try duplicating it today and if all goes well it looks like this will be something I’ll be offering on the website!  I’m so excited!

I’ve got ideas for the above, but also polka dots and maybe offering a chevron pattern in foil as well.  Is there anything you’d like to see?  I did one last night with just the names in foil and that looked very classy as well.

Foil is available in all kinds of cool colors.  Check it out:

All the foils of the rainbow.

Oh yeah.  So excited.  I’ve already placed my order for a bunch of different colors and cannot wait to start playing.  It’s happening, baby.

 

Mario Party

Mario.  All Mario, all the time.  I have a son… that should explain a lot.

This is my professional blog, for my wedding invitations.  But I put a lot of work into the birthday parties I throw for my kids, and I thought, maybe another mom out there might appreciate some of the stuff I’ve done.  Maybe some of my ideas might help them when they’re planning a party for their kiddletons.  With that in mind, let’s get to some Mario goodness.

Last year the Kamikaze Kid turned six.  He was obsessed with Mario, and asked for a Mario party.  This is what I came up with.  Let me start by saying that everything in the stores was Lego themed, and it was hard to find much Mario and Luigi stuff.  This year I decided to go easy on myself and convinced him to go with a Lego party – and everything in the stores is Mario themed.  I can’t find anything with a Lego block on it.  GO FIGURE.

The first step in my party planning (or wedding planning) is aways to come up with a basic color palette.  For a Mario theme, I knew the colors would have to be red, blue and bright green and yellow – a true primary color scheme.  I repainted a picture frame I bought at Goodwill a zillion years ago and printed out something I MacGyver’d together in photoshop to make this sign for our front door.

Welcome, gamers, to the Kamikaze Kid’s epic sugar infused pool party!

I made a lot of the decorations – I usually do.  Because of time constraints I try to buy more than I used to (I used to insist on making EVERYTHING but who has time for that?) but I always end up making at least a few things.  With Mario stuff being so hard to find, I ended up DIY-ing quite a few things for this party.

Like everyone else online, I went to Home Depot and bought some PVC pipe, then spray painted it green.  It really does make the perfect tunnels that mimic the ones in the game.  I then cut out a triangle from some styrofoam balls (for the mouths of these – what are these red dotted things anyway?) and painted them.  I had trouble finding something sturdy enough to hold them up, and couldn’t face making another trip to Michael’s, so I used green popsicle sticks which I raided from the kids’ craft drawer.  A year later and the Kamikaze Kid is still playing with these things, so I’m gonna call this a crafting success – and they looked pretty awesome on the food table at the party, too.

I made the little food sign – the “fire power” sign by the cheese balls – out of a wooden stand I got at Michaels.  I usually buy them when they are on sale or I have a bunch of coupons, and then hold on to them.  I always end up using them for something.  I printed out the Luigi picture from photoshop and glued it on, then painted the bottom of the stand green and the “stem” of the stand red with white dots to match the red headed mushroom thingies I had made.  It looked pretty good!  I made a few food stands like this.

Marshmallow mushrooms

These marshmallow treats were a HUGE hit.  HUGE.  I’ve discovered that anytime you put a marshmallow on a stick (or in this case a straw, since the sticks I had kept breaking and I didn’t trust using them without getting splinters into kids’ mouths) and toss a bit of icing into the deal you are going to have some seriously happy children.  I love how these turned out, and they weren’t very hard to make at all.  The first step is putting the marshmallow on the straw, so you can put the icing on the marshmallow without smudging it.  I learned the hard way – you can see the smudge on the first one I did before I figured this out.  The marshmallows were gone in about 7.8 seconds.

Tablescape.

I think the table turned out pretty cute.  I usually don’t have a formal “sit down and eat your cake here” area, but decided to this time because the kids are getting older and since we had a pool party we had to call them all in for cake anyway, so they may as well have somewhere to sit down and eat.  And since I’m a crazy person, I hand painted those clouds on the cardstock squares as decoration.  Yup.  Nothing but the best for my kids.  They’d better throw me one awesome retirement party one day, I’m telling you…

The favor boxes were a lucky find, I think I found them on amazon.  The sign says “Game over, thanks for coming.  Please take a gift box!”  The frame is a cheap Ikea frame that I have used a thousand times over at different parties.

The Kamikaze Kid had opinions about his cake and how it should look for the first time ever.  I let him describe his wishes to the (very patient) baker behind the counter at our favorite bakery, and she actually managed to give him exactly what he asked for.  And it was absolutely delicious!  The sides have all the different Mario characters on it.  If you live in the Austin Texas area, I recommend checking out Sweet – we go to them whenever we need a cake or other sweet treat.  Their prices are competitive, they are friendly and have always given us exactly what we have asked for.  You should have seen the crazy amazing thing they created for my daughter’s Nightmare Before Christmas birthday party… apparently a few of the bakers were obsessed with the movie and were calling dibs over who could decorate it.

Do you like Mario?  Is Mario taking over your house?  Do you have the Mario theme song running through your head constantly?  I wonder what the next obsession will be…

Handmade Nano Robots

My invitations are handmade.  Yup, I make all the invitations you guys order BY HAND.  Well, I have the inserts printed by a professional printer, but I make all the pockets and add the rhinestones and whatnot by hand.

Recently I ordered some samples from some other invitation companies, just to see what my competition was doing.  And they were very nice – I have no complaints really.  They are not my style, But that’s why I created my own wedding invitation years ago in the first place.  But the samples were fine.  Just – fine.  Kinda blah, in my opinion.

However, it was very obvious that these were factory made.  The pockets from the different companies were identical, but assembled in different types of paper.  The ink was printed right onto the cardstock rather than onto blank inserts along with a design.  To me, this made it look less special or unique.  Basically, all of them seemed very “cookie cutter”, as though a line of nano robots were spitting them out in an assembly line rather than the invitations having any sort of human touch to them.  Wow, that’s quite the image, eh?

Now, I don’t want to slam these – I realize people have different budgets, and for some this may fit within their budget or preferences and that’s fine.  But for those who, like me, just cannot do things like everybody else, I offer my handmade invitations as an alternative.  Because each one goes through my hands I make sure every single one is up to my high standards before shipping it out.  I painstakingly create a tiny reflection of you and your partner to present to your guests while allowing you to be a part of the creative process.  While the inserts are at the printer, I begin to cut the cardstock that will become the handmade pockets and outer wrap.  When everything is back from print I assemble it all myself.  I am a perfectionist and have set a very high standard for myself.  I am very proud of the work that I do and the high quality I provide.

My try to exclusively use Bazzil cardstock when creating my handmade invitations.  If Bazzil isn’t available in a particular color I will go with another brand that is of the same quality, but it is my favorite cardstock to use because of the thickness and texture.  There is also a huge variety of colors and even certain gold foil patterns that I’m somewhat in love with.  I’m a bit of a paper snob, this is a topic I should probably write a separate post about.

When planning your next event, I hope you will consider using my invitations.  I really do believe that a beautiful handcrafted invite sets the tone for your wedding.  Contact me for a free sample!

Invitation Wording – wordify fun

Invitation wording.  This phrase can make even the most calm and collected bride to be start to sweat.  Well, this phrase and the words seating chart.  Before we start the stress, let’s begin with some humor from one of my favorite cats:

 

get fuzzy comic
I, too, can food anything.

 

So let’s get down to wordifying your invitations, ok?  Coming up with invitation wording can be tricky, because sometimes parents want their names on there, sometimes you are paying for the event yourself and want only you and your fiance’s names to appear.    There isn’t really a “wrong” way to do it these days, unless you forget to include the following:

Who

Who is getting married?  Make sure you put your names on there.  This shouldn’t be too hard unless you’re proofing your invites when you’re totally blotto.  I don’t recommend this.

What

You’ll want to indicate in some way that it’s a wedding invitation and not, say, a bat mitzvah or a Friday night wannabe adult prom.  You can indicate this by saying “at the marriage of their daughter/children” if you are including your parents’ names or, if not, you can write “as they join together in matrimony” or “as they exchange wedding vows”.  There are a bunch of ways you can say this, more than I can write here.  Google is your friend, my peeps.

Where

So, where is this beautiful little (or big) shindig happening at?  Include the venue name and address.  If the reception is at a different place, I recommend putting that information on the main invitation too.  Inserts can get lost or fall out in the bustle of the day, and an insert can easily be tucked into a suit jacket pocket.  This is a great example of my client Erin’s invitation and how she placed both addresses on her invitation without making it look too jumbled up or busy.

When

Make sure you put the time the ceremony begins!  I’ve recently seen some brides on wedding forums lately stressing over whether to write that the ceremony time starts at 4 when it really begins at 4:30.  As a guest, I would find this annoying.  If it starts at 4:30 I will make sure I get there on time, and to be honest quite often weddings get started a little bit late because of unforeseen snags.  If you have your guests sitting there waiting for 45 minutes, they are going to be really annoyed – especially if the venue is too hot or too cold.  Please trust that they are adults and can get there on time.  And if not, then they’re going to miss out on your big walk down the aisle and they can seat themselves after the fact.

RSVP Date

Whether it’s on a separate card (which I recommend) or via a wedding website, make sure you have your RSVP deadline clearly stated.  Having said that, also trust that people are going to promptly ignore it, and you’ll have to chase them down.  People are ridiculous with RSVPs for some reason.  It’s not just weddings, I’m finding it with children’s birthday parties and wedding anniversary parties too.  So make sure you have given yourself enough time to chase down the guests who have not responded!  And make sure you have stocked up on wine, chocolate, oreos, episodes of Teen Mom or whatever your poison is to get through the hell that is called RSVP follow up.

To card or not to card?

Why do I recommend having an RSVP card?  First, it’s tradition and expected, at least for the older set (like me – sob).

Second, not everybody is computer savvy.  I know it’s hard to believe, but my first girl scout co-leader didn’t even have a cell phone until I basically harassed her into getting one so she could communicate with the service unit and stop making me do all the work – not that I’m bitter or anything.

Third, I am barraged by emails and links and things I need to RSVP to for my kids’ school, and it always somehow piles up.  If it comes to me in a paper copy, it’s much easier to just quickly answer it and then pop it in the mailbox when I make my daily trip.  That means you’ll get the response faster.  I feel like a website response will become a part of the tech noise I deal with every day – but that may also just be me.  You do you – I am approximately 12954 billion years old after all.

I will get more in depth with invitation wording in another post, but hopefully this gives you a brief overview of what is required.  Happy wordifying!  I’m gonna go food some chocolate now.

Wedding Planning Adulting

I have been adulting like crazy today.  And if you’re doing any wedding planning, I bet you’ve been adulting too.  Yays for everybody!  We deserve a margarita or six.  We also deserve this t-shirt.

I need this t-shirt. I’ve earned it.

Wedding planning is hard work.  There are so many decisions to make and checklists to tick off and DIY projects to mess up and redo – I mean, it’s a wonder any bride actually makes it to their wedding day at all.  But at least we’ve got you covered for your invitations!

If you send us your color palette, a picture of your bridesmaid’s dress, or even just a written description of your colors we can change up any of our designs to match your theme.  Wedding planning win.

I love how soft these tones are.  I usually go for much bolder colors when I’m designing, so this is outside my natural comfort zone.  But I was really drawn to this palette and I’m really happy with how the circular design turned out.

 

 

 

If pinks aren’t really your thing, that’s ok.  What do you think of this silver and gold toned version of our Dots collection?

I looooove this.  I hope someone is planning their wedding in this color scheme, I think it looks very classy and royal and would love to see a tablescape set up in this palette.  And how cute is this little girl’s hair?  I love how this looks, and I love the slight blue tinge in this palette.  Gorgeous!

 

 

Good luck with your wedding planning.  And good luck to both of us with our continued success adulting.

Help! I need some somebody!

A color scheme is important to have during your wedding planning.  It helps to narrow down your choices and to bring everything together in a cohesive manner.  Following a color scheme can make an event go from looking like you picked up some mismatched dollar store finds to hiring an upscale event coordinator, and you’ve basically spent the same amount of money.

I need a color scheme and I don’t know where to start

I’ve been seeing this a lot on bridal forums lately.  Brides who are at the beginning of their planning, and feel lost with their color choices.  I get it – there are so many great color pairings out there, and all you have to do is play around on pinterest for a while to have your mind changed twenty times.

The best thing you can do, I’ve found,  is to use descriptive words – don’t focus on big picture right away, but rather descriptive words for your event.  Elegant vs funky, timeless vs modern, traditional vs unique.  Is there anything you absolutely do not want?  If you know you are more of a traditionalist, then you probably won’t want to go with a black and bright pink color scheme.  Love the drama of Hollywood red carpets and want to emulate that excitement at your event?  Then maybe black, red and gold is something you’ll want to lean towards.  If you are using descriptive words like fun and lively for your wedding then maybe something bright like orange and pink are going to be more appropriate.  Descriptive words are the best way, over years of doing this, to narrow your focus on the feel of the event you want to have.

Color Connotations

There are probably some color combos you want to avoid because they are associated with certain thingss.  Be wary of color combinations like red and green because they are Christmas colors, orange and black because of Halloween, pastel purple and yellow because of Easter and black and yellow because you’ll have a bumblebee wedding.  That being said, if that’s what you’re going for then have at it.

Invitations

If you like my invitations, and you know what you don’t want, then let me know what you hate and we’ll work from there.  Sometimes it’s easier to try a couple of things to see what really works before you hit on “it”.  And that’s ok!  I don’t charge based on the number of mockups I do, so if it takes twenty tries, it takes twenty tries.  If we get it right after three tries, then that’s awesome too.  If you have no idea what you’d like color wise, let me know and I can help you narrow it down.

It used to be that I had to do a face to face consultation.  But we are no longer living in the dark ages!  With the advent of me not being a lame-o and having a smart phone and ACTUALLY KNOWING HOW TO USE IT (insert the voices of a thousand angels singing here) we can now do scheduled consultations no matter where you are.  So get in touch with me and we’ll set something up.

Good luck!  Let me know if you need some direction!

Move over, Gin Blossoms. It’s Cherry Blossom time.

Cherry Blossoms.  It’s such a delicate and sweet motif for a wedding, or any party.  It’s a traditional theme but not so much that you can’t play with it to add unique and modern elements.

Make it your own

With our cherry blossom design especially, changing the color scheme really switches up the overall feel of the invitation.  Sticking to the traditional light pink and brown tones gives a whimsical touch, but going darker reminds me of some artwork I’ve seen in the homes of my Chinese friends back in Toronto.

Amanda’s black and red theme worked amazingly well with the cherry blossom invitation! I’ll take a world of this, please.

Christine knew she wanted a cherry blossom motif and pink and black as her colors, but wasn’t sure which one she wanted to see more of.  I think this is a good way to show you some of my process, and also how different the same design can look with a color change and font change.  These are three mockups I did for her (out of many) and out of all of them we settled on the last.  I actually think they all look great for different reasons, but they definitely do all have a different feel.  Which one is your favorite?  Leave me a comment and tell me why!

What’s that?  You want to see what other wedding related cherry blossom stuff I’ve found online?  Well, ok then.  But only because you asked, and also only because I’m busy listening to my murderino podcast and am happy to surf the net for you.

Jewelry

cherry blossom earrings
Golden Kiss Jewelry on Etsy – who wants to buy me these?

I think these earrings from GoldenKiss Jewelry on Etsy are adorable.  They come in silver or gold, and at $16+ I think they’re a really good find for the money.  She’s got excellent reviews, so definitely worth checking out.

Obsessories LA – as good at making jewelry as they are at naming their store. So, pretty darn good.

I think these itty bitty cherry blossom earrings from Obsessories LA are the sweetest little gift you could give your flower girl.  How adorable are they?

 

 

 

 

 

Wedding Favors

Ah, the dreaded favors.  I’m partial to anything edible myself, but then again I think being 6590 lbs suits me.  😉  I did a quick search for you and found a few things that I thought were cute and not coo-coo bananas expensive.

cherry blossom oreos
Cherry blossom oreos? Or really, any kind of oreos. Um, yes please!

Omigod oreos.  Cherry blossom oreos.  Omigod.  Like… omigod.  I don’t think I need to say anything else here.

 

Oh wait, I should probably tell you the store name.  It’s MerryGoSweets on Etsy.  You need to buy stuff from her.  Even if you decide not to get married, you need to buy stuff from her.  And so do I.  Because oreos.  Omigod.

 

 

 

 

cherry blossom coasters
Super cute and unique coasters. Rockin the old school vibe.

A billion years ago when I got married, everybody considered coasters as a wedding favor. I mean, I didn’t, but that’s just because everybody else was doing it and as I’ve said before, if other people are doing it then I suddenly become allergic to it.  Anyway, I saw these and didn’t break out in hives because these are actually really adorable.

 

 

 

 

cherry blossom wine glass
Let’s get blotto, y’all.

The wine glass in the middle with the cherry blossom motif is pretty cute, and is a favor that I think quite a few guests will actually use after your event.  And let’s face it, if many of them are newlyweds themselves, they’ll need to be drinking some vino to get through the first few years of arguments about in-laws, spending, and stop leaving your laundry on the floor the bin is RIGHT THERE can you seriously not see it it’s like two steps away just lift the freakin lid it’s not that hard- oh wait, this suddenly became all about me.  Sorry about that.

 

 

Yummies for your Tummies

Cherry blossom cupcake toppers. Can I go to a bakery and just order the toppers, I wonder? Will they think I’m weird?

This is the deciding factor for me.  Forget everything.  I’m going to throw myself another wedding, and it’s going to have a cherry blossom theme and instead of a cake it’ll have a few thousand cupcakes with these adorbs edible cupcake toppers on them.  My husband is gonna love it.  No, he totally will.  Stop arguing with me.

Well, that about does it for today’s episode of Chantal Spends Your Money For You.  Thanks for tuning in.

Heart Eyes, Yo.

Hearts.  It’s a pretty standard wedding motif, and for good reason.  Hearts are a perfect symbol of love, and what’s a wedding without love?  Being a wedding vendor, I knew I’d have to create an invitation with a hearts motif.

But being me, I knew I couldn’t do something standard.  I tried, I really did, but I just can’t do things and have them turn out like other people’s.  I guess that’s why my business is successful, though.  This is the hearts design I came up with.

Blue Heart invitation
Hearts Collection signature style invitation in shades of blue and green.

 

Pretty swanky, huh?  I really like the signature style because there’s an extra opportunity to personalize things with the side panels.  Blue and green are usually my go to colors when designing because those were my wedding colors.  I also really like using pink tones and shades of orange in initial designs.

Previous Client Work

I really wasn’t sure how this would look in other colors, but thankfully my clients are always really creative in their ideas, and we have worked together to create some really beautiful invitations featuring this design.  Like this one, doesn’t the pink just pop?  It makes me think of the type of gum with the liquid goo inside – it’s such a juicy color.  I love the stripe of green and the hearts seem to pop right off of it.

Playing the Blues

There is some pretty cool stuff clients have done in shades of blue.  I always go for a turquoise shade, which is my signature color and the color I painted my office walls.  But seeing these again, I realize that I’m really limiting myself.  These are pretty rad – there is such gorgeous depth in these blues, and I love both the purple and tangerine they have chosen as accents.  Man my clients are awesome.

My client Erica chose a pretty rad scheme of vibrant blue and deep purple. Haha! Deep purple. Am I the only one playing songs in my head now? GAH I’M OLD.

Cassie and I played around with a few different shades to get the perfect color of navy that really made the tangerine stripe popped. I love how the hearts are cream colored to match the text, instead of just white. SO AWESOME!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I absolutely adore this last hearts collection.  A brown and blue color scheme always looks classy and hip at the same time.  Being a versatile scheme, it can be fresh and funky, it can lean towards the more rustic side if the blue is on the pale side, or it can be very classic if the motif is something traditional.  I think Shawna nailed it with this one.

Shawna’s contemporary version of the popular brown and blue color scheme looks amazing. She sent me a photo of her bridesmaids dresses and I worked off of that. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

 

The back and forth

Generally, I’m not a huge fan of hearts.  However I’m really digging this hearts invitation and especially what my past clients have done with it.  I’m really excited to see what my new clients can do to really make it their own.  I think it’s so cool that I can come up with something when I’m designing, and then my clients can make it their own in ways I hadn’t considered (and I’m a pretty creative person).  I think the back and forth between us is really interesting and I really get to know my clients’ and their tastes.  We tend to email/text and sometimes my clients have used my inbox as a therapy session, too, which I don’t mind at all!  A lot of the time we are facebook friends at the end of the process (hey I’m still old school) and in some cases I’ve had a chance to watch my clients go on to start families of their own.

And to think… it all started with some hearts and a lot of love.
