If you don’t do etiquette in your daily life, there’s really no need to suddenly start doing it in your wedding invitations. Unless you’re the Queen. Have you ever “requested the pleasure of the company of” any of your friends before? No! Because they’d look at you all weird. Now isn’t the time to start… there’s a billion better ways to word your wedding invites!
Gracefully asking your guests to join you on your wedding day is the goal. Your invitations should make your guests smile (not yawn; not skim read to the best bits) and have them looking forward to your big day. Beautiful design goes a long way – and throwing in some personal touches makes any wedding invite unique and special.
Sustainability is an incredible challenge in wedding planning. How, exactly, do you make your Best Day Ever – a single day – sustainable, when you’re likely spending ££££ on entertaining your guests and making it look amazing? When this sustainable vintage garden party wedding inspiration landed in my inbox I was blown away. It’s proof that you can have the wedding of your dreams without harming the environment or breaking the bank.
Lovely English Wedding member Sam from Willow and Rust Weddings sent this our way – it’s already been featured on the fabulous Save the Date blog, and we simply had to give this amazing bunch of suppliers another front page feature!
