Wedding Menu Detail

Good morning!  I can’t believe it’s already June and the official first day of summer is quickly approaching!  It has been 7 months since our wedding, but who’s counting?

When I first began doing my research on menus for our wedding, I was contemplating not having a paper menu at all but instead making a large chalkboard menu, similar to this.  As much as I love that, I realized it might be more practical for each guest to have a menu in front of them.  We chose to do paper menus that had the same theme as our invitations and place cards.

Everything matched and I was happy with that!  The menus were pretty, but I felt like they needed a little something extra.  That’s where the bling came in.  I purchased these at Hobby Lobby on sale, and they worked perfectly!  Here’s the end result:

I think even that simple little red rhinestone made the menus that much better and completed our black, white, and red theme.  And I had fun putting them together 🙂

Have a fabulous day!



Wedding Invitations, Help!

Hey guys!  My next order of business in the wedding planning = invitations!  I’ve started to do some research online, and there’s so many options to chose from.  Do I order them online, try to make them myself, or a combination of both?  I’m leaning towards the 1st option, since I really don’t seem to have any time these days 😉

I used Pear Tree Greetings for my save the dates and was really pleased with how they turned out.  I’ve been browsing their wedding invitation collection and there’s a few that have caught my eye.  Also, I’m a fan of Wedding Paper Divas.  They have a huge selection and I love all their designs.

Here’s just a few of my favorite invites that I’ve found around the web to give me some inspirations.  As a little girl growing up collecting all kinds of letters and stationery, I sure can appreciate all these beautiful paper goods!
