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!

 

 

Tahoe Wedding Advice | Bachelorette Party Tips


Now that your best friend, sister, college roommate is engaged – it’s time to start thinking about the bachelorette party!!! There are so many ideas but we have a few tips to get you started on the right track.

1. Pick the group that she feels comfortable “letting loose” around | Get the invite list from the bride and let her decide who she would like to have join – if she hasn’t spoken to someone in a while or doesn’t feel comfortable in Vegas with work colleagues, they don’t need to get an invite.

3.) Remember this is her night or weekend | Focus on what will make her have fun and enjoy a relaxing evening, not what everyone else wants to do.If sipping wine by a roaring fire while glamping, or partying all night in Vegas are things that will make your bride-to-be happy, then that is what your plan should entail.

2.) Create a Budget | Once you have the guest list created, ask everyone what they are comfortable spending. If it’s relatively small, keep this in mind and maybe plan a one-night, local adventure. If everyone has a little more wiggle room, maybe consider turning this into a weekend relaxation trip or quick flight to somewhere fun.

4.) Elect one person for Planning  | It’s so easy for everyone to brainstorm and come up with a million locations, ideas, themes, etc. Let one person coordinate all of the details and then as a group finalize everything. That way no one is doing double work and everything will be more seamless.

5.) Take care of Transportation | Do everyone a favor and rent either a limo, town car, or party bus. No one wants to be the “sober” one for this fun night out, so everyone should build in their budget an allotment for responsible transportation.

Little One Love | Lake Tahoe Wedding Inspiration


You can’t underestimate the charm or utter adorableness that bringing in a little one can create for your wedding day! However; although many of us have had visionary dreams of kisses on cheeks and smiley walks down the aisle with little ones, it’s always a good idea to have a contingency plan. Be prepared for melt downs, and in the case that the little ones are unable to perform their duties, have someone on hand to take them to a quite place away from the celebration so that no too much attention is drawn away from your vows.
