Get the Look: Write in Style with our Glass Dip Pen

We all want our wedding invitations and stationery to look phenomenal! We painstakingly choose just the right design, print it on the best paper and word it with the greatest of care – but what about when it comes time to hand-write names, addresses or warm wishes to your guests?

Tying a ribbon isn’t quite as simple as tying your shoe. Sure, you could do it the exact same way, but if you do the end result isn’t going to be the one that you are hoping for.

Wedding ribbons can look smart and classy just as long as you take a little extra time to tie them. Unfortunately every ribbon type requires a slightly different method to achieve that polished look, and of course it depends what you are tying the ribbon to!

For this post we are going to focus on favor ribbons, but keep in mind that the basics behind them can be applied to many other ribbon types.

Wine Drop

Born of majestic vineyards and with a millennia of history behind it, wine is truly synonymous with culture and elegance. As with great relationships, wine not only takes time to mature but it also takes willingness and dedication to fully appreciate its many qualities.

There are many ways that wine can be incorporated into a wedding in order to achieve an elegant and sophisticated atmosphere.

The Love Letter

(or Love of Letters…)

One of the most romantic sentiments that can be shared between lovers is a love letter. It is so much more than just telling your loved one how you feel. A letter helps you fully understand your emotions and your thoughts. It is something tangible that can be kept, and cherished. It’s not like a memory that will fade in time, you can go back at any point and relive the emotion that was so honestly conveyed.

A love letter can be an apology or a declaration. It is a way for those of us who are not so great with words to sit down and figure it all out before sharing it. There is nothing wrong with writing a few drafts to ensure it says exactly what you want it to say.

Sometimes three words are not enough to express the deep and abiding love between a couple. A love letter says all the things that cannot be encompassed by ‘I love you‘.

Introducing: The Media Guy

As a visual guy I like to argue that it’s pictures that tell a story, initially grab us, and put things into context. My name is Luke and I’m Weddingstar’s Web Media Content Luke The Media Guy Creator or put simply, ‘the media guy’. With an SLR or camcorder in my hand my goal is to help present the originality that this company both creates and inspires.

Things have really just started to take off in the last year. We now have WeddingstarTV where you can view the videos that I create on everything from specific product demos to behind-the-scenes previews. There’s a lot more on the way too! This blog, for me, is going to mean a chance to debut new videos as they go live and share some of the stories and details behind the subjects featured.

So, why don’t we get started?
