‘ALISON LOVES…’ SPOTLIGHT | Minted Stationery = Amazeballs. Help me choose my fave?

Happy Thursday to your beautiful faces, my darlings.  I’m kind of foaming at the mouth about this vendor so I’m just gonna hop right to it so you can catch the rabies-like excitement that’s going around this office apartment right now…

Oh, and I’m feeling especially gipperrrrr today because it’s kind of the nicest weather we’ve had in a gazillion years, and weather has this funny way of wholly determining my emotional state during that *special time* of the month.  Good times.  Good times!  Ahh-MAZING.

Ok, SO.  If you know me at all, you know I am obsessed with extremely amazeballs things within the wedding realm.  And that I don’t feature something unless I dig it, myself, and would indeed consider using it for my own wedding.  I don’t think I could STAND being a blogger if I wasn’t speaking exclusively about the stuff I love.

On that note, on a scale of one to seizing, {Continue reading…}

WEDDING INVITATION LOVE | Sending Your Guests the Very Best…

“Vintage Postcard’’ Invitations, $750 for 100 by Golden Rectangle Press.

I started obsessing over wedding stationery suites this past weekend.  This happens a lot.  Thing is, I have this ongoing love affair with them; I get really excited about a few different suites, try to decide between them – the color combos, the font(s), the wording – and then, after a week or so, I am so overwhelmed by my complete lack of ability to make a decision, that I scrap the whole thing and move on to what to make for dinner.  Because that’s super easy; at least I can make something new every night.  But with wedding stationery, you’ve got one shot to get it right!  And yes, some of you are probably saying it’s really not that big of a deal.  But I guarantee that I’m well within the norm when it comes to this.  I swear, it’s got to be one of the most fun/most frustrating/most impossible decisions to make with regard to wedding planning.  And, according to many of my friends and colleagues, sending out the invitations is when “it hits you” that it’s really happening.  You’re getting married.  Oooooweeee!  What a feeling that must be!

Well, in an effort to make that feeling the best it can possibly be, I’ve been on the lookout for some real standouts in the invite arena.  So, whether your style is classic, bold, beautiful or quirky – truly, whatever it is you’re seeking, I believe any one of the selections I’ve gathered here – from some of my absolute FAVORITE stationers – will kick things off just right.  Hope you like!
