Foil invitations are a beautiful option for any season and we are loving the idea of a simple silver foil accent. Shop our foil designs that will allow your names to shine! Or upgrade your paper type to premium shimmer. It will give your invitation a pearly white finish that adds a subtle shine to your already glowing invite!

 FRESH & CLEAN

A simple fresh feel is always a good option for a spring wedding. A clean white background with a pretty cursive font will set a calm tone for your special day and help you and your guests feel light, airy, and relaxed.

 ACCESSORIZE

Belly bands, cute floral envelop liners, colored peel and seal envelopes, matching guest books -the list goes on! Anything to add a little bit of pizzaz is the ultimate springtime touch!

Let’s Eat: Food/Drink Stations (2 of 2)

Your guests may not remember all the details of your wedding day, but creating a dinner menu with food you and your spouse love will certainly be something they won’t forget. A current exciting and yummy wedding trend that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser among guests is forgoing the usually sit-down dinner or buffet and instead incorporating food stations during cocktail hour and/or the reception. Below are some mouthwatering ideas that will leave your guests with full stomach’s and fun memories.

The fun flavor and personality of food stations can be carried over to beverages as well. Channel your creativity with drink station set ups, whether it be for a signature cocktail, Italian sodas, fresh juices, or infused waters.

Let’s Eat: Brunch Wedding (1 of 2)

Are you and your future spouse lovers of all things breakfast, or maybe you are thinking outside of the traditional box and deciding to have a day wedding. Either way, choosing a breakfast/brunch menu is a great way to serve up some of your favorite foods, especially since it’s the most important meal of the day.

Creating a make your own omelet bar or a flapjacks station is certainly a fun way for guests to try a little bit of everything. Donuts will most definitely be on the menu (because after all they are their own food group right?), it is always nice to throw in some healthier options as well. You can easily add in some fruit toppings for waffles and pancakes or even these cute individual parfaits.

You can’t have an early riser’s meal without a freshly brewed cup of coffee. For those of your guests that aren’t coffee drinkers, cold-pressed fruit juices or a mimosa bar are other excellent options.
