Theme: Tiffany’s and Diamonds…on a Budget

Have you always dreamed of an extravagant Tiffany & Co.-inspired wedding but never thought you could pull it off on a limited budget?

Well, here some of my favorite Tiffany & Co.-esque guest favors, stationery, accessories and wedding decor that won’t break the bank no matter how grandiose or modest your budget.

The Inspiration

Everybody knows a Tiffany & Co. gift box when they see it. The Tiffany Blue color (and yes, it’s an actual color!) is just so charming, especially accompanied by a pretty white bow.

Pair it with faux diamonds and you’ve got yourself a glamorous, elegant wedding theme.

Theme: Sports, with Style!

Hey brides: can’t you just picture this little rugby man cake topper sitting atop your classic, white fondant wedding cake? Hmm…probably not. But you know who can? Your groom!

As the bride, you’ve probably sanctioned the wedding your domain. The colors, the cake, the centerpieces, the flowers, the favors — your groom is likely halfway out the door before you can even utter the words: “Let’s talk about the wedding.”

But have you even really considered him in all the planning? Or better yet, have you ever considered a wedding all about him? From fun yet classy cake toppers to sports-inspired guest favors, there are so many options to help you make your wedding day fit for a man, with style!

No matter what his sport of choice may be, Weddingstar has everything you need to make his dream wedding a reality! Continue reading

Introduction: It’s an Adventure to the Altar

Hello readers! My name is Allison and I am the new creative copywriter here at Weddingstar Inc. And I am delighted to announce that from now on it’s my jabber you’ll be reading here on On a Sweet Note!

I’m a journalist-turned-blogger and a lover of all things matrimony. I can’t wait to share with you each Monday, Wednesday and Friday the secrets of the wedding world as I uncover them over the coming months.

I am by no means an expert on weddings nor have I had the honor of being a bride myself yet, but I too hope to be walking down that aisle soon just like you. For me, it’s just a waiting game until my boyfriend decides to pop the question…finally!

So, lucky you – you’re getting hitched! It’s one of the few times in your entire life where the world revolves around you so make sure you take time out of all the planning to enjoy it. Because with the big day comes the inevitable burden of wanting to make everything perfect.

~ Just imagine yourself wearing this floral-embroidered tulle veil. Stunning! ~

Designer Spotlight: Stationery Insight

Greetings:

My name is Maxine and I work at Weddingstar in the print department, specifically with wedding stationery. I must say it’s a real treat working with a great team of inspired designers as well as having the opportunity to design invitations for weddings all over the world.

Photobucket

I’ll start with your most important piece of stationery for your wedding, your invitation. The style and presentation of your invitation will set the tone for your wedding and you want to make sure it correctly represents you as a couple. Resist the temptation to design your own invitation – save yourself some hair pulling. Inevitably it will be more time and budget consuming than you expect. Leave it to a professional.

Traditions: Wedding Invitation Wording

Wedding invitations can be one of the most difficult wedding details to plan. They are the first thing your guests will see (unless you send out save the date cards), and will set the tone of your wedding. They are traditionally very formal and few people choose to send out invitations that break out of that mold.

If you have grandparents or parents that are sticklers for tradition, you will want to make sure that you use the correct wording on your invitation. There are formal and informal ways to word your invitation and you are definitely allowed some creative license, but if you want to ‘do it right’, there are a few things that you should know.
