~Registry Lust: Kate Spade China~

Wedding Registry.
One of the many exciting things you and your groom will do together for your wedding . . . and stress free (usually).

Make a date of it
. . . go get coffee and a treat, OR go grab a glass of champagne or happy hour and then set out shopping and scanning your new life together!

This is a good test of compromising and agreeing!

Enjoy it, and don't take it too seriously where it effects your mood . . .
because guess what?!
You can always change it online after:-)

Current Registry Lust:
Kate Spade of New York

And they have so much more! Love the cute feminine look of their dishes,
for more info check here

Happy Registry!
Pssst . . . this is not a paid advertising at all, just my loves!

Ooooh how fun! Ice Cream Parlour:

So many options, I am so excited!

The Bride LOVES to read, so I'm thinking of tying in a garland kind of like:

That I print some cool font and write "Sweets"

With lots of fun cake pedastals

Psst keep in mind you can create these looks at any party:
birthdays, showers, bachelorette parties, etc.

Show your guests you have some style!

Enjoy your weekend loves!

~Save the Date Trends~

A few noteworthy trends for
 Save the Dates:

Back to the classics
We've been seeing more and more back to the elegant classic Letterpress . . .
Believe it or not letterpress invitations are extremely popular these days. Over the course of the last ten years the interest in engraved invitations has waned and the popularity of letterpress printed invitations began to take hold. Why? Partially because of the influence of Martha Stewart and her wedding magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings. The magazine routinely featured letterpress wedding invitations by hot new designers who were eager to hop on this trend.
Letterpress Coasters:

Social media/Internet
Save the Date Videos
What a personalized way to show your friends and family the love you two share . . . recorded! (AND save on paper: how eco-friendly!)

How fun!:

Of course!
Seeds to plant . . .

"Eco- Friendly Papers

Eco-chic is cool, not to mention it fits perfectly with the "Anthropologie-esque" wedding craze. The wide range of available eco-friendly papers makes having wedding invitations that are lovely AND earth friendly easier than ever before. As always, our standard printing paper 100% cotton that is made from the by products of textile mills in a wind powered factory, but the options don't stop there"

Suuuper cute, and functional!
Vintage Magnets

And so many more . . .
what is your favorite trend for save the dates?

Happy weekend loves!
