Flow is on my my mind. I know – can we get back to the beautiful designs please? Who wants to talk about the flow of designing and printing wedding invitations? When you look back and see how smoothly your wedding went and what a good time everyone had, it’s these sort of details that help keep things humming along and reduce the chances of last minute panics.
There are so many different parts to your wedding in your everyday life that you’re juggling, the last thing you need is to worry about is getting the invitations out in time. That’s why I map out a check-list of your invitation flow. This can be passed back and forth and we can all see where we stand. Between chats on the phone, get-togethers and e-mails, it can be hard to keep track of where we are. That’s why I like having overall progress at our our fingertips.
Let’s take envelopes, for example. When we’re in the midst of excitedly discussing designs and going over edits, it’s easy to overlook envelopes. But the last thing you want is for your envelopes to hold up getting your invitations out. In some cases, envelopes are straightforward, but in others they take thought and planning. Do you want them to be a certain shade that picks up a color in your invitation? Do you want them to have an interesting or matching liner? You’ll want lead time to make these decisions without being stressed just to get the envelopes out the door.
These stuffy details count. I’m always excited to find new ways to streamline the process and actually take great pleasure in making sure your invitation flow is seamless, so you don’t have to worry.
