Your good friend just got engaged. Your (insert here: sorority sister, camp friend, girl you’ve known since 2nd grade) spent a few Sunday afternoons dragging her fiancé through Bloomingdales and Williams Sonoma, lying to him and herself about all the cooking she will do in the future.

Everyone is feeling the pinch; while engaged couples are trying to save,… Continue

I neglected to google for directions before I left, and since it was the day of the wedding, it seemed no one was answering their cell, so finding the place was quite a hassle. In this modern age of computers and GPS navigation built into our cars and phones, bad directions should be a thing of the past. Unfortunately though, they are not.

Have you ever missed, or arrived late, to a wedding because… Continue

The Basics

There are four basic parts to a wedding invitation, the envelopes, the invitation, the reception card and the response card. Let us explore each of these elements closer. We will start with the envelopes.

But there is a really good reason we hire people to do certain tasks. First and foremost, you have to consider that if you've done it all yourself, who will take care of laying everything out on your big day? If you've done it all yourself, will you… Continue
