7 Reasons Why You Should Send Out Invitations

Hey Everyone! Happy Thursday. I hope all is well with you and everything concerning you. Today’s post is one of my favorite, there is nothing more enjoyable to me than creating gorgeous invitations. I know most people think that wedding stationery is the one area where you could save a lot of money and yes you might be able to save a few pennies but I would strongly recommend couples not to cut out invitations completely because its one of the most exciting parts of planning especially if you are doing them yourself. I know these days you can find just about anything online and slowly but surely people are resorting more and more to electronic invitations. But I must say that there is nothing more chic or personal than an actual invitation received by regular mail. Here are 7 reasons why:luxury invitations

1. It shows that you went through the trouble (and money) to let your guests know that their presence at your wedding is appreciated.
2.It’s literally the “first impression” of what your wedding/event will be like! No need to spend a lot of money if it’s done right. Although I wholeheartedly believe “more is more” sometimes “less is more” if your working with a small budget.

How To Create A Successful Wedding Using Five Senses

Have you ever wondered how celebrity planners create, plan and execute amazing weddings and events? Well the key is to use the main five senses collectively. Think about creating an experience and pay attention to details, it’s the small thoughtful little gestures that your guests will remember forever. Here is how you can incorporate sight, touch, smell, sound and taste to create one a of a kind event or wedding.How To Create A Successful Wedding Using Five Senses

Sight:The first thing that people see when they walk in. Create a memorable entrance. It doesn’t have to be expensive; you can have a waiter at the entrance holding a tray of chocolates or a signature drink.

Touch: when it comes to touch, ideas are endless. A simple change of table clothes, chair sashes or table runners can enhance the party feel for your wedding/event. Instead of having the normal folding chairs; hire chavaria chairs or ghost chairs.

Smell: blast your favorite scent from the entrance to the ceremony site and maybe key places in the dining space. The best scent will be one that goes with your flowers. Don’t over do it though, spray only the right amount.

Sound: play music that goes with the mood you want to create. Rock and roll is a no, no for a relaxed feel wedding/event. Think Jazz or sensual music

Taste: tickle your guest’s taste buds by creating a menu that goes with the mood and the feel of the wedding/event. I don’t know about you but everyone I know loves good quality food; so be creative about serving your food. I have noticed that in America most couples have food stations while waiting for their main formal sit down meal. You can have food stations of the top five countries that you have visited or would like to visit and serve each countries national dish. I assure you your guests will love it. Make sure you explain to your caterer exactly what you want and don’t forget to have a tasting session.

I hope this post has been helpful to you and if your planning a wedding take these tips into consideration and I’m sure you and your guests will have a great experience.
