Did You Know You Could Send Invitations to Celebrities? Keep Reading!

    November 2, 2022

You may have read this title and thought “WHATTTT?!! I can send invitations to celebrities?” The short answer is yes. Although it may seem rather silly and unrealistic, sending an invitation to a celebrity may come with some benefits.

After mailing your invitations out to your friends and family, and you find yourself with a few extra, test your luck by sending some to celebrities and/or companies! Some couples who have mailed invitations to Disney characters like Mickey and Minnie Mouse have ended up receiving keepsakes and souvenirs in return. Others have chosen to mail invitations to stars like Taylor Swift, Jimmy Kimmel, Beyoncé, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Starbuck, and so many more. Couples who have tested this out have received notes in response!

When we send you the Excel spreadsheet to be filled out with the names and addresses of who will receive your wedding invitations we have a short list of celebrity names and addresses for you. Or you can find the information for the stars and companies online and even the addresses where they prefer to receive fan mail (which may be a good address to send it to in order to receive a response)!

How wonderful would it be if you got a response, even if it is a standard response? Or even better, if Elon Musk's secretary opens your invitation and looks at the calendar and knows he cannot make your wedding and sends a present? And in the best case scenario, they actually show up! You hear about these stories! It could be YOU!

You never know what can happen, but it is fun to try it out! You never know what or who may turn up in your mailbox or your wedding!

Escort Cards vs. Place Cards: 

The Differences

    October 5, 2022

Now that your seating chart is out of the way (phew!) let’s talk place cards, escort

cards, and their differences! Now you may be saying to yourself “Wait…there are

differences? I thought you could use the words interchangeably!” The answer to

your question is yes, there are in fact differences, but lucky for you we are here to

go over it!  Let’s break it down! 

Escort cards direct guests to a table rather than a seat. They are more informal  than place cards and allow guests to choose their own seat at the table. Typically, escort cards are placed outside the entrance to the dining room. Guests will find their escort card and make their way to their table. 

Place cards, on the other hand, indicate a specific seat for each guest, making them more ideal for sit-down dinner receptions. They are placed at each table to designate each guest’s place.

The differences are slight, but it is always best to know this information.

How to Easily Create a Seating Chart

September 10, 2022

With planning a wedding comes many, many, many orders of business. One that

you might be tempted to put off at first because you don’t feel like doing it or it’s

too tedious is... your seating chart, but you need to do this quickly after you have all your responses because now you need to make (and print) your seating chart.

With this very helpful DIY tip, you can conquer your seating chart in a breeze!

The first thing you will want to do is get a large piece of paper (or poster board)

and draw out circles for the amount of tables you will have. Next, you will want to

get little stickies and write the names of your guests. Feel free to categorize them

by color like in the picture below! Start placing your stickies around the various

tables until you are happy with the seating layout! The best part of this hack is that you can move around the stickies and test out different arrangements until finding the one that is best for you.

We hope this tip is helpful in your wedding planning process and that it can help

take some of the stress out!
