  • Announcing an Engagement with an Engagement Invitation or Announcement Card

    Posted on January 22, 2015 by Nicole

    Thinking back to the moment he proposed to you, how did you feel? After you said yes, you and your fiancé couldn't wait to tell your family and closest of friends. How will you be letting your other extended family and friends know? There are a number of ways to announce your engagement. Will you be sending out an announcement card or an engagement invitation to celebrate this joyous occasion with some good fun and a toast?

    Beach Hearts Engagement Invitations

    If you are choosing an announcement, there are two ways you can do this; a mailed engagement announcement or publishing the announcement in a newspaper or alumni magazine. If you’re choosing to mail the announcement card, then what you’ll need to do is look for a design that you find appealing and affordable with your stationery store and have them customise the details for you. Now, if you choose an online stationery store that facilitates not only customising the announcement information but will go one step further to even add personalised names of the card recipients, you know you’ve found the best engagement announcement card shop for this specific need. You can select from the various types of designs, which may include traditional and elegant designs, illustrated and patterned designs or photo engagement designs that can also act as a keepsake.

    Beach Engagement Invitation

    Now these very same designs can also be used for your engagement invitations, where you will invite your family and friends to a fun gathering to share in the joy of the moment. It can be any design that you wish it to be from elegant and traditional, patterned, illustrated or both, to a photo keepsake engagement invite. Whilst the mailed engagement announcement includes information you would like to know, it doesn’t mean that you can’t send it to people who may or may not be invited to the engagement party or even the wedding as the guest list is usually pretty close. Now the main difference is that the engagement invite will include details and information to the engagement party alone, but that doesn't mean you can’t exclude whatever information you would have liked to include in your announcement card, especially if you are only planning on sending an engagement invite and no announcement card whatsoever.

    The likes of your names, your parent’s names and even places of residence, maybe even information about the two love-birds are some items you may include in the engagement announcement; basically anything that the world should know – it’s up to you to decide where to draw the line. If you’d like to publicise the wedding date (if you've decided when it’ll be, whether a specific date or “sometime in the summer”, then do so). Your engagement invitation on the other hand, can include the names of the newly engaged couple, the party details, the RSVP information and even a hint towards when the wedding may be. You can even include a quote from a mutual favourite poem or role model if space allows it.

  • Save The Date Cards for Weddings

    Posted on January 14, 2015 by Nicole

    From the moment you said "YES" to marry "The One" you may have had a rush of ideas and visions of what your wedding would be and maybe even thought up the things you'd like to do. It could have been a fun engagement party, to the venues for your ceremony and then reception, or even the fact that you would like to send out save the date cards for the wedding.  When one chooses the option of sending out save the date cards for weddings rather than your wedding invitation,  this card will unveil your wedding theme and vision, in whichever way you would like it to be (especially so if you want all your wedding stationery to match and flow). This can be done with colour, focal designs/patterns and not to mention illustrations and/or photographs (be it of the wedding venue or a keepsake photograph of the bride and groom).

    Save the date cards

    Save the date cards can be sent for weddings being held in a location within your neighbourhood, out of town or abroad. What you include in the card matters, along with when you're sending them out to your wedding guests when it's an overseas wedding. There are many styles of wedding save the date cards; photo save the dates, postcards and even cards that have magnet accessories so that it's easy for the guests to pin to their fridges. With a large array of designs and styles of save the date cards for weddings along with the option of customising not only the text and colours but also almost all the design elements, you really are spoilt for choice with DreamDay Invitations.

    Beach Save the date cards

    As your save the dates are the precursor to your wedding invitations, you can be a little more relaxed as etiquette isn't as necessary as with wedding invites. If you'd like it to be in the same design theme that you've chosen for your wedding, be it the decor, attire and wedding stationery, you can. However, the extent that you go to keeping the theme flowing is for you to decide. For instance, you have selected a wedding stationery suite that features a beautiful flourish design acting as the top and bottom borders. Whilst you keep the flourish border constant throughout the wedding stationery, you can make your wedding save the date card stand out by opting to include a high resolution photograph inset between the borders.  This photograph could be of the two lovebirds or a beautiful scenic photograph of the venue.  If you'd like to separate the save the date card designs from the wedding invitations and on-the-day wedding stationery, you can do just that! There's no hard and fast rule with save the date cards for weddings.

    Adding a touch of lace, whether it’s drawn out in stencil form or is included in the wedding invite as an embellishment, lace wedding invitations are ideal as it goes hand-in-hand with the bridal look. Almost always, the wedding dress will have some lace appliqué as it signifies purity, innocence and new beginnings. You could be inspired to add lace to your invite card by using a design on the print, or go as far as to have it set in foil or embossing, or simply and delicately use lace as the forerunner by featuring it as part of a layered wedding invitation style.

    Embossed Wedding Invitation Designs

    If you love the idea of a white wedding, you can definitely choose a simple design for your stationery. However, if you’d like to add a little “oomph” to it without it being too obvious, the best way to do so is with a subtle embossing treatment. Be it a flourish or lace design, you can have it embossed onto your wedding invitation card style as a finishing touch.

    Hardcover Wedding Invitation Designs

    A luxurious pick, these wedding invite designs evoke a sense of class from the moment you open up the crisp envelope or even better, the wedding invitation box. With layers of hard cardstock ranging from textured to speciality wedding paper, you can further add to the look with the help of embellishments such as satin ribbons, faux pearl and diamante clusters/buckles and not to mention lace trims, monogram labels and more.

  • Wedding Invitation Wording Questions

    Posted on January 5, 2015 by Nicole

    Figuring out what your wedding invitation wording will say can be sometimes difficult. You need to think about invite wording etiquette, the tone (depending on the style of the wedding – formal/casual), how you addressing your wedding invitees and so on. We’ve put together some Wedding Invitation Wording Questions to make it a stress-free wedding task.

    When should our wedding invitations be sent?

    wedding invitation wording

    The perfect time to send out your wedding invitations is six to eight weeks before the big day. If you’ve sent a save the date (that states a wedding invitation will follow), that’s good practice too but not mandatory and sent six to eight months prior.

    What is proper etiquette for a destination wedding?

    It’s always a good rule of thumb to give your guests a little notice, and usually a destination wedding invitation should be sent three months prior to the big day to make travel arrangements and such. Sometimes, a save the date sent six to eight months prior is always a good idea, just to let your wedding guests ready in terms of arrangements, absence from work or even getting their finances in order for travel/accommodation (if the venue is overseas).

    How do we decide on the RSVP deadline?

    Set your RSVP response deadline two to three weeks before the wedding which will allow you to get a final head count that you can communicate to the caterers (which is needed a week before the wedding day) as well as make arrangements for the likes of your ceremony and reception seating charts, your place cards, souvenir menu cards, and other personalised on-the-day wedding stationery you need to order.

    What should the wedding invitation wording include?

    Wedding wording and verses

    The wedding invitations wording is broken down into several sections, namely as follows;

    • Proper Name of the Hosts
    • Request Line
    • Relationship of the Host to the Bride
    • Bride’s Name (Middle Name if she has one)
    • The Groom’s Name
    • The Date in written form
    • The time of the day and wedding
    • The Name of Wedding Venue
    • The Reception Line
    • RSVP Information

    Please visit Wedding Invitation Wording for a detailed breakdown of the above with examples.

    How should we address our guests in the wedding invitation wording and envelope?

    When addressing your guests, you need to include their proper names in the Request Line as well as address the wedding invitation envelope. Below, you will find the proper etiquette when addressing your wedding invitees.

    If we are hosting an adults-only wedding reception, how can we politely let our wedding guests/invitees know?

    This can be tricky, but it all comes down to proper wedding invitation etiquette and keeping your request line specific to the adult wedding guests intended and not including the likes of “and Family/Children” or “and Guest”.

    How should we tell our wedding guests about the dress code?

    You can include the dress code at the bottom of the invitation wording that says “Black Tie”, “Cocktail Attire”, “Casual Attire”, “Beach Formal’, etcetera. The style and design of the wedding invitation will also convey the “tone” or nature of the wedding.

    Do we need to invite single guests with a date or a “plus one”?

    It’s not necessary and is up to you, but usually if the guest is unmarried or isn’t in a serious relationship, inviting them solo is completely acceptable etiquette.

    How do we word a reception only wedding invite?

    If you have already had the wedding ceremony and would only wish to invite your guests to the reception, your wedding invitation wording can read as follows;

    Jane and John Smith

    Request the Honour of Your Presence

    At a Celebration of their Marriage

    on

    Saturday, the Fifth of January Two Thousand Fifteen

    At Four o’clock in the Afternoon

  • Wedding Table Decorations

    Posted on December 23, 2014 by Nicole

    The day is coming closer and closer, and soon, before you know it, it’ll be the day. But before it does, when you’ve collected all your reply cards from the ones you sent out with your perfect wedding invitations, you need to figure out who’ll be there to share the day with you. When you order your wedding invitations from a reputable wedding invite vendor, you’ll be able to buy wedding stationery that are in the same design suite.

    Most places only offer the on-the-day wedding stationery without the personalised information, such as the place card information, seating charts and so forth, but with DreamDay Invitations, you have a one-stop shop for your wedding table decorations/stationery. It’s quite convenient and easy, really! All you need to do is find the same look of your wedding invitations that you ordered from the DreamDay wedding invitations range, scroll down to the “Matching Items” and click on the on-the-day or wedding table stationery you are after. For instance, if you are planning on having personalised place cards, souvenir menus, personalised seating charts, place mats, table number cards, napkin bands, a welcome sign and even buffets menu place cards, these are all things that you can have done for your wedding day, all through DreamDay Invitations online.

    We’ve highlighted a few options and styles for you to consider when doing up the wedding table decorations and more.

    Seating Charts

    Seating Charts

    Going the extra mile and taking the time and effort to personalise the seating plan of your wedding guests, whether it’s for the ceremony or for the wedding reception is such a thoughtful thing to do. Figuring out connections and networking people can be quite fun and putting it all together onto your wedding day seating chart is one of the final steps into personalising your wedding day.

    Depending on the number of peoples invited to the wedding and how you want to categorise them, whether it’s alphabetically sorted with the respective table number alongside their names or whether you want to assign them to a table number categorised accordingly, the choice is up to you. Some brides and grooms also prefer to accompany the wedding stationery design theme with a table layout too, so that they can head straight to the location of wedding table and easily spot the assigned table by its number (or even name). This is especially true when it comes to large weddings (with many wedding guests or a large venue where the table numbers are placed across a large area).

    Once you’ve finalised the seating chart order, it has been printed and delivered to you (account for turnaround/delivery times and order as early as possible), you can have it framed to match your wedding theme (rustic/modern/elegant flourish frame) alongside a framed welcome sign (also personalised and printed by your wedding stationery shop).

    Personalised Place Cards

    Place Cards

    Once the seating chart as been finalised and personalised accordingly, and you have that ordered you can use the same information listed into your online template spreadsheet for the guest list and have them printed out too (to match the wedding invitation, welcome sign and seating chart and of course the table number cards). These can either be folded personalised place cards that you can add an embellishment for added oomph or a flat card that can be pin or propped against a holder/item that matches your wedding theme. A lovely idea that is trending is metallic painted figures as place card holders set as part of the wedding table decorations.

    Table Number Cards

    Wedding  Table Number Cards

    Wedding Table number cards are one of the most important wedding table decoration items as you need to have a way of letting your wedding guests know where to sit and should correspond to the seating chart. You can’t let your wedding guests wander from table to table reading place cards to figure out where to sit – that would be bad etiquette. Instead, have a clearly denoted and matching wedding stationery item for the table numbers and also make sure to list the names clearly on the wedding seating chart. Some brides and grooms theme opt to have names instead of numbers, therefore this needs to be conveyed too and having a visual map (in the seating chart) can help.

    Souvenir Menu Cards

    Souvenir menu cards are lovely, especially when you want to make the arrangement of your table classy and elegant. Of course, this is best suited for sit down dinners with waited staff, but it’s quite well done when you look into all the little details. Personalised with the name of each wedding guest, and the delightful menu options in store, they can take this home as a personal keepsake memento from your wedding day (along with the place card too). For weddings that host a buffet menu, you can opt to use place cards instead.

  • Travel Themed Wedding Invitations

    Posted on December 16, 2014 by Nicole

    Wanderlust is the strong desire to travel, to see the beauty of each corner of the world, taking in the experiences, sights and wonder that it holds. As you sit down to plan your wedding, you may have a strong desire to mix a little travel into your wedding. Start off with a wedding theme, design your wedding invitations and complementing stationery to flow effortlessly and make an impression with your guests. There are some great travel themed wedding ideas out there; you are really spoilt for choice.

    First of all, have a chat with your fiancé. Find out what he/she would like for the wedding. Let your thoughts and wishes be known, and come to an agreement about your wanderlust themed wedding. Having said that, you also need to settle on a style for the theme, that is, what feeling should be conveyed (elegant, fun, casual, quirky, vintage, etcetera), the colour scheme, and the details you would like to stand out. The first unveiling of your wedding theme will be with your travel themed wedding invitations (and accompanying invite accessories – the reply card, directions and accommodations card, wishing well and gift registry card, etcetera), so start there. For some, it’ll be the save the date.

    There are some unique ways that you can not only make your wedding invitations, accessories and stationery personalised and custom to your wanderlust wedding, but also how you go about planning a truly sensational wedding day. Tying up your travel themed wedding with a destination is another great way to plan a fun wedding. If it’s a weekend, you can even plan relaxation and fun activities leading up to the wedding and afterwards before your wedding guests have to head back home. Turning your wedding day into a mini-holiday will truly make it  a memorable one for everyone there!

    Here are some great travel themed wedding invitations & stationery for you to consider.

    Postcard Save the Date Cards

    Most holiday-goers send out postcards back home to their family and friends; why not incorporate that into your wedding stationery?  Style a save the date card cleverly into your travel theme and send it out. A photo save the date would be ideal, especially if you and your fiancé have taken the time to take a few professional pictures with a wanderlust theme in mind.

    Boarding Pass Wedding Invitations

    Wedding invites styled after boarding pass tickets are truly clever. The arrangement of information is so carefully laid out, plus it comes with a themed enclosure card to fit it snugly and neatly, especially when you have invite accessories with you. If you are having an intimate affair and you would like to make sure your closest and dearest family and friends will be there on the day you marry your love, then you can even slip in an actual boarding pass airplane ticket behind the boarding pass wedding invitation. Won’t they be surprised and totally excited? We definitely think so!

    Luggage Tag Styles Wedding Invite Accessories

    When you’re sending out travel themed wedding invites, you might want to carry the theme onto your wedding invite accessories. Why not use luggage tag shaped cards to include the likes of your directions to the ceremony and reception venue, accommodation options for your wedding guests, wishing well verses and not to mention the gift registry information too. You can even include a ribbon attached to the punch hole in the luggage tag card to make it authentic.

    Passport Wedding Invitations

    Passport Wedding Invitations

    Passport themed wedding invites are fun too. The pages within can mimic the bio information and you can even include a photograph of the engaged couple. It’s a great way to include all the wedding information such as what you would usually include in wedding invite accessories into the passport wedding invitation pages and you can customise your wedding invitation wording accordingly. As these are little booklets, your envelopes will be small as well, and make for great keepsakes too.

     

    Don’t forget that you can easily customise the colours and designs you want featured on these stationery items to match your theme, whether it’s with illustrations (seashells, palm trees, tropical flora and fauna, etcetera), photograph designs or even painting techniques. Consult with your wedding invitations designer and let them your wedding vision be known.
