More Invite Inspiration

How fabulous are these invitations? Would you believe that the Bride, Jess, made them at home? Jess' not a graphic designer or any other crafty type, she's a lawyer and she made these wonderful invites at home using a Gocco printer. Amazing.
Check out Jess' blog fig & plum for all the details on how she made the invites. Jess also gives a helpful checklist to help you determine whether or not printing your own invites is for you (I ticked yes to all the why it's not statements). AND would you believe Jess also made tote bags for all out of town guests, coasters and CD covers! I am starting to doubt Jess' uncrafty claims - she's very talented.

Pictures from Jess' wedding can be found here on Brooklyn Bride.

Lebanese Wedding Customs - Best Man

Did you know that it is customary for the Best Man to pay the priest? Not to sure if it means that the best man has to shell out for the priest or not? But that would be nice - for the people getting married, not too nice for the best man.
Other duties include sitting beside the best man, eating, drinking and having fun. Also involvement in any cake cutting.

It's like rain on your wedding day

Apollo Bay is not generally known for its warm weather. Rain is almost always a possibility when you’re visiting there and though our wedding will be at the beginning of March, nothing is certain where weather is concerned. A while ago I saw this wedding photo on Smitten and thought it was most lovely, the cute gum boots and umbrella not stopping the wedding.

Today I came across this wedding by photographers Comfort Studio on the blog BridalHood. It poured down on the day of their beach wedding, but a little rain wasn't going to spoil the day. Everyone got soaked, even the bride, making for a fun, memorable day.

How fabulous is this cake?! We love it! Now we just have to find someone in Melbourne to make it for us and who'll deliver to Apollo Bay.

Invitation Inspiration

March is fast approaching and we have just started looking at invitation designs. Apparently you only need to send out the invitations two months before the wedding, but as ours is out of town, there's Christmas in between & we'll be leaving for a month from the beginning of February, it's best to get them out now. Green Wedding Shoes has been a fabulous source of inspiration for the invites, which Nick will be designing. Here are a few of our favourites.....

I love that this RSVP card has 'Gladly Decline' as an option!
