Fall/Christmas Wedding Ideas

Congratulations!  You’ve decided to tie the knot!  Now take a deep breath, because after the initial excitement of the engagement has passed, the overwhelming realization of the amount of work you have to take on is going to hit. Getting married is stressful, no matter when you set your date.  My advice is to start with the big things: find your wedding location(s) and caterer.  After that, worry about the photographer/videographer, florist, and DJ/band. The most time-consuming part is going to be figuring out how you want to personalize your wedding ceremony and reception, so that it captures a bit of the blending of you and your fiancé(e)’s personalities.  Start ahead on your wedding attire, and don't let yourself get worked up!  When it comes to everything else, think first about your colors, theme, and personal style. A lot of people really love to reflect the season in their big day.  There are a ton of little things you can do to add a bit of seasonal or holiday flair to your wedding, without making it seem cheesy or themed. 

A new, hot trend is the black & white wedding with red accents.  Aside from bringing in the red with flowers, consider adding small touches of winter decorations like peppermints.  The bold red, white and black will keep your event classic and elegant. Coordinate your invitations with a design like this one:

Moulin Rouge Pocket,Insert Card & Pre-Tied Ribbon - ELEGANT Linen card White Linen w/ Red Cut Pocket and White Bow w/ red scroll top.  Paper is a high quality linen 80 # card stock.  Price includes coordinating envelope.  You can purchase these blank or we can print them for you.  LCP16-op - "Moulin Rouge Pocket,Insert Card & Pre-Tied Ribbon" 

Another idea is to incorporate holly into your floral decorations.  It is a subtle touch that brings the warmth and brilliance of the red berries and deep green leaves without overdoing it.  Try using a simple invitation with a matching, but not overbearing theme:

 

Happy Scroll - This invitation is part of the fabulous Mindy Weiss Christmas collection! A trendy design printed only on premium fine quality 80 lb. card stock. Available either blank or personalized. Includes white envelope.ZMW1-53 - "Happy Scroll"

  

A great way to bring in the Fall season is to focus on the colors.  Bring in one of the warm golds, bronzes, oranges, or reds you find in Autumn leaves without making your whole event centered around fall colors. Pine cones are a great touch for floral arrangements, too.  Match your invitations in a subtle way as well:

  Green and White Elegence Tall Pocket - Elegant long invitation with sparkling pocket and satin ribbon creates a lasting memory. Beautifully paired with a sparkling crystal envelope to complete the ensemble. 4.5" x 11", 100# cover, Sparkle! Assembly is required.  If you would like us to assemble your personalized order please make note in the comment section.  ( $.50 per card for assembly)LFS-100 - "Green and White Elegence Tall Pocket"

A new attitude

There is nothing like a few days of vacation to cleanse you mind, renew your spirit, and give you a new attitude.  I LOVE that feeling of "I can conquer the world" I get when I finally get to spend some quality time with my family, sleep in a bit, and de-stress.  Stress is like kryptonite, sapping my creative and physical energy. 

Thanksgiving for my family was wonderful; dinner was great, the kids had fun, and we were able to relax all day.  I started working on my annual family holiday letter.  Like many families I like to take a moment to look back at the year, identify all the neat things my family and I did (like buying Impress In Print! ), and then put them into a letter for family and friends.  I usually find myself having to limit the highlights in order to keep it to one page.  I thought I would give you a few ideas of things that you might want to include in your letter, just in case you have a case of writer's block:

  • What grade did you kids start this year?  Did they start college?
  • What are they learning at school (how to read, multiplication, US constitution, etc.)
  • Sports acomplishments/Academic awards
  • Funny things your kids have done in the last month or so
  • Promotions at work
  • Volunteering activites
  • Changing Jobs
  • New hobbies
  • Travel plans for the holidays
  • Cool vacations you took this year (include a picture)
  • New pets
  • New home (try not to brag too much :) )

That is just a short list of ideas, obviously make your letter as personal as you feel comfortable.  You can also create two letters, one for close family and another for friends and associates.  Everyone jokes about these letters, but I know I read every single one I recieve.  It is a nice way to catch up on the lives of those we don't get to see very often.  I wouldn't recommend doing this over email, instead opt for sending it through standard mail (maybe even use some nice decorative paper -- that's my sales pitch).  Have some fun with it, stretch out your creative legs and do something different this year.
