Guest Post: Aerialist Press on Wedding Invitation Wording and Etiquette


Here at One Fine Day Events, we love all things “wedding”. But one of our favorite things is pretty paper! From the save-the-date down to the place card, we believe the paper details have the power to set the tone for and elevate an event in lovely ways. So, we love to collaborate with talented designers that help our couples create the perfect paper suite for their wedding or event.

When it comes to the invitation though, what it says is just as important as how it looks. Your invitation must honor the right people, convey all the right information, and do it all in the right way. There are so many rules, and unless your name is Emily Post, you’ll likely need a bit of help finding the right words for your perfectly polite invite.

Cue: Aerialist Press. Not only are they talented designers, but they’re also experts on invitation etiquette. Today we are so excited to have Alexandra here on the One Fine Day blog to share her wisdom with us!


Happy Engagement season! Alexandra from Aerialist Press & Foiled Invitations here. A big thank you to the One Fine Day Events team for having us guest post with them today.

The time has come for you to plan your dream wedding and you’ve chosen the fabulous One Fine Day Events team to bring your big day to life! There are so many experiences through the planning process to get excited about, like selecting a beautiful save the date and wedding invite. But wait, are you thinking, how in the world do I word this? Not to worry! We’ve got you covered.

If you’re like most couples, you might find yourselves a little stumped when it comes to writing the proper verbiage on your thoughtfully designed wedding invitation. Our team wanted to make the process a quick and easy task on what we know is a long list of wedding to do’s! We created a pretty little info-graphic and guide explaining the different elements of a traditional wedding invite and what is involved in making sure your wedding invitation is etiquette-approved and true to your style. We also added in some tips and tricks providing an understanding around how many postage stamps are needed and a list of attire options.

InvitationWordingGuide(Blog)Need more inspiration? We created a full list of 21 wording examples for every celebration style we could think of. You can take a peek at the mega post up on “The Aerialist Blog”. We are also happy to answer any other questions you might have in the comments!

 

 

One Fine Day honored to receive Best Of B&B 2016 Award


Turns out it is not only award season in Hollywood! Borrowed and Blue is one of our favorite wedding blogs that is designed to inspire and guide brides and grooms from across the US in 66 specific markets. Every year they come out with the only exclusively vendor-voted wedding industry awards. It’s so unique (and fun!) that B&B allows the vendors themselves to hand-pick their very favorite companies to work alongside. We believe that your vendor team needs to be comprised of people who are not only talented and fit nicely into your budget, but that they are also a joy to work with! For example, it’s difficult to get a sense of a photographers communication style if you are only viewing images in their online gallery, but it’s absolutely essential to have the person capturing all your precious moments be someone who you feel comfortable interacting with – not to mention smooching and crying in front of.
