Make it personal

Seeing as this week is officially an ode to paper, it’s only fitting to talk about invitations – the first impression your guests have of your wedding is the invitation they receive. And while that’s generally on paper, we’ve learned it doesn’t necessarily have to be when you have Paperless Post. {More on that later}

We came across this idea in Peggy Post’s Emily Post’s Wedding Etiquette, it’s fabulous and while still appropriate social-rules wise, it’s also a completely personal way to compose an invitation. Instead of the traditional short phrases, cover the who, what, where and when in a less formalized structure.

Consider Ms Post’s example {we’ve taken her original invitation and given it a Toronto twist!}

    Another great garden wedding

    The second wedding we have goes to show how incredibly different two weddings can be despite general similarities. Without further ado, Mel Barlow's photographs of the Patterson's wedding have us swooning!
