Happy Wednesday everyone! Two weeks ago I told you about my favorite invitations and save-the-date cards from Etsy. I am glad I’m not currently planning a wedding because there’s SO MANY beautiful designs to choose from. Making decisions sometimes paralyzes me! On the other hand, I keep hearing myself say ‘wouldn’t THAT be fun?’
I came across lots of cool printables that wowed me. So here’s Etsy Search: Stationery, Part II.
Are you looking for a memorable way to ask your friends to be in your wedding party? These cards from Sweet Bella Cards make fun keepsakes. She also offers calling cards with all of your bridesmaids’ names and numbers in case they don’t know each other well. It’s all right there in one little wallet-sized reminder. And then there are the return address labels. You’ll be doing lots of mailing in your last few months of
singlehood singledom singleness as a single gal … might as well do it in style!
These maps from Icing On The Paper are so adorable! You can customize them to include hotels, important locations and attractions for your guests. Include them in invitations or in activity packets you’ve prepared for your out-of town visitors.
Isn’t this just the cutest rehearsal dinner invitation (below, left) you’ve ever seen? Cheerup Cherup designed this, which I think is a great idea. Multiple guest lists for each wedding event can become confusing, and I love the idea of a separate invitation for this event. Cheerup Cherup also has these fun and colorful reception thank-you cards that can be slipped into each place setting. They’ll add color and charm to your table for sure. Another great idea I found there is custom wedding stickers. They can be used in so many ways — especially as labels on gifts for your guests.
These numbered table tents from Jessica’s Deisgn Shop are the greatest! I love the idea of using old photos on them. Weren’t Geniene & Jordan cute 10-year-olds? Um, I’m pretty sure I wasn’t. (80s hair, anyone?) Oh, come on, at least we can all laugh about it, right? Jessica’s also creates custom monograms. You can find ways to use them at the wedding as well as after. Another fun product she offers are custom stickers. Put them on bags of popcorn or cups of coffee at the wedding reception and wow your guests.
I like to save the best for last. (I think it comes from growing up with a last name that started with W. I was always last.) Did you ever fold a cootie catcher in your middle school years? You know what I mean, those paper fortune tellers that looks like an origami device? Well, they’ve grown up too! Darling Girl Paper offers a whole line of wedding cootie catchers that are perfect icebreakers for your guests. They can play them to answer trivia questions about the bride and groom, to meet the wedding party, use for a reception scavenger hunt, play mad-libs… the possibilities are endless! Folding those has to be just like riding a bike, right? Once you make that first tuck it’ll all come rushing right back to you.
There’s a lot more great stuff out there, for every budget and every style. Stickers, stamps, downloadable DIY stationery. Go crazy!
