A: I love all wedding movies! I am a hopeless romantic!   

What would you say has been the proudest moment as a business owner in the wedding industry?

A: Every time I meet a new couple and hear that they have been referred to me by a previous client that always makes me proud. It is such an honour to be a part of all these lovely couples special day and when someone is happy with my services and recommends me, it sure makes me feel wonderful!   

What will you be showcasing at the Hamilton-Halton Spring Wedding Show 2013?

A: Custom made wedding invitations and stationary. I will be showing a lot of pocket invitations which are really popular right now in my different colours, shapes and sizes. I will also have all matching items such as menus, table numbers and also my really popular picture seating charts

Behind “The Big Day” Series: Interview with Inviting Elegance

26 Jun

With the 9th Annual Niagara Autumn Wedding Show fast approaching, TopWeddingShows.com has set out to give you a closer look into the local wedding world, with behind the scenes access to the talented industry leaders who turn your dreams into wedding reality. Recently, we had the opportunity to sit down with Anne Kelly from Inviting Elegance. Visit their website at www.invitingelegance.ca

In your opinion, what are the biggest trends for the upcoming wedding season?
Elegance – more and more couples are choosing classic, elegant colours and touches. Staying away from trendy themes.

What is the number one piece of advice you’d give to couples planning a wedding in 2012 / 2013?
Don’t get too overwhelmed with decisions – talk to two or three vendors, get a few options you like and then make a choice.

What is one of the strangest / oddest / funniest things you have experienced since working in the wedding industry?
A couple from 2006 divorced. The groom came back to me for his second wedding in 2009 because he loved his invitations so much! Also, an aisle runner with a Swarovski crystal monogram. It cost thousands of dollars!

What is your favorite part of the wedding process?
Planning all the little details that will all tie together on the special day.

What will you be showcasing at the Niagara Autumn Wedding Show?
Custom invitations that will give guests a glimpse into the couples wedding day – colours, theme, feel.

TopWeddingShows.com chats Wedding Invitations with Savvy Sendables

9 Aug

Sarah and Nikki from Savvy Sendables has taken the time to give us the latest on wedding invitations trends. Be sure to visit Sarah and  Nikki at the 8th Annual Niagara Autumn Wedding Show 2011 in booth #2!

Savvy Sendables participating in Niagara Autumn Wedding Show

Q: What is the hottest trend in invitations right now?

A: A few of the trends that we have noticed are bold colours; a favourite of our couples has been cobalt blue and turquoise.  Patterns such as paisley and damask are always in style as well as textures such as wood grain are making an appearance.  Coloured envelopes to accent the invitation are popular as well rather than the traditional white or cream.

Q: What is the proper way to list the parents of the bride and groom on the invitation?

A: Wedding planning has changed so much over the years that there are a number of things to take into consideration when deciding how to list the names of the parents.  Traditionally, if the parents of the bride are hosting the wedding you would list their names first above their daughters name i.e. “Mr. & Mrs. John Smith request the pleasure of your company…” followed by names of the grooms parents below his name i.e. “son of Mr. & Mrs. Robert Jones.”  Creative ideas and personal preference also play a role in invitation wording sometimes leaving traditional wording on the cutting room floor!

Q:  How far in advance should brides and grooms send out their invitations before the wedding?

A: Invitations should traditionally be sent out at 6-8 weeks before the wedding.  We always recommend our first meeting with the bride and groom be 4 months (or sooner!) before their wedding. We want to allow for enough time to design and assemble your perfect invitation although we’ve done it in far less time!

Cheers,

Shannon
