It’s such an exciting time of year for us here. The holidays are just around the corner and the engagement season is about to start! With that said, I thought this would be the perfect time to discuss what pieces you need to include with your invitation and what you don’t!

Notables Invitation M Alyssa Hill 7070

Do you envision your invitation set looking something like the photo above? Chances are if you are having a local wedding, you might not need that many inserts. The basics are your wedding invitation with your names, date, venue and reception information on it accompanied by a mail back reply card (or postcard) and an outer envelope addressed with your guest’s names. If you are wondering what you should do if your entire guest list is living in the digital age, you might want to go with an insert that simply asks them to reply to an email/website instead. Include a phone number too, just in case a relative or two don’t have access to a computer.

Wedding ceremonies taking place out at a remote location with no Google Maps or even a different city – the address may leave your guests confused.  Having a map insert is extremely handy. We make this really easy for our couples, because all we require is for you to supply us with your routes from point A to point B. Then we illustrate it digitally and customize it based on your wedding suite. Simple as that!

A great addition to having a map insert is also information regarding accommodations. If half or more of your guests are travelling, you may have arranged a group rate at a nearby hotel that you would like to extend to your out of town guests. A smaller card with this information can be nicely tucked in with the rest of your inserts whether you would like to have them tied together with twine, or organized into a pocket.

One insert that we never encourage though, is including any registry information. I think I’ve brought this topic up before, but I will talk about it again because it’s an important one to us. Tradition and Emily Post say that there should be no mention of money anywhere on your invitation. This also includes the term ”toonie bar”. We strongly suggest having your family and wedding party let everyone know where you are registered and share the information that way instead. You won’t want to look back at your invitations and see that you asked your friends and family to go to Crate & Barrel to outfit your home.

Another insert you may want to include is for the couple who are planning on having a weekend long party, is to do an itinerary. This can be a fun little add on that plays up your theme!

As always, you’re always welcome to come in and speak with one of our consultants to discuss your wedding invitation suite! Call to book your appointment or click here.

All Is Bright

hero_01_logo

As Edmontonians, we must embrace our wacky temperature changes, stock up on wool socks and maintain a great attitude or we can face a very long and cold winter season. Thankfully, we have All Is Bright to look forward to! On Saturday, November 23 we will light up the festive season just in time for the holidays. Get ready for a full day of hot cocoa, sleigh rides, Edmonton bands such as Shout Out Out Out Out and Wool On Wolves, ice sculptures in the making and so much more!

Want to get involved? If you are interested in volunteering for the festival you can do so by visiting their website. Or if you would like to take part in their Outdoor Market, apply online because space is limited!

There will also be a holiday window display contest so be sure to vote for your favourite window! {Our window in particular, is looking especially nice!}

Inspiration: Tropical Destination

Don’t let the snow and cooler temperatures stop you from dreaming of the hot sun and pina coladas, because if you’re planning a tropical destination wedding you’re on the right track! Let me show you some dreamy invitations that are suitable for your tropical themed day…

Notables Save the Date Emily Smith 0963 - 72

This fun and unique passport Save the Date card is great because much like anything that we do here at Notables, it can be customized and suited to you and your fiancés tastes and colour scheme for your big day!

Notables Invitation Emily Smith 0993 - 72

What else goes with a passport? A boarding pass! Have fun with the inserts that fit inside your custom designed boarding pass folder, too. We love creating a reply postcard to go along with this particular suite.

As you already know tonight is our annual pen and jewelry event, Pen a Story. This means you can enjoy some wine and Canadian made Sprucewood shortbread cookies while you shop the latest in fine writing instruments and Story by Kranz & Zeigler. To maker it even sweeter, for coming in you will receive 15% off of any regular priced pens and Story purchases! Come by between 5pm and 8pm to get started on that Christmas gift list.

Another great gift that we love helping with is creating personalized stationery. What better way to give a beautiful pen than with a great set of note cards? We have plenty of boxed stationery in-store for you to choose from, or we can brainstorm ideas with you during a consultation. One of my personal favourites are the stationery sets from Paper Queen…

Paper Queen

They have a variety of styles available to choose from and pages of fashionably illustrated women to select from to make the perfect notepad for one (or five!) very special ladies!

Are you looking for something a little more classic? Crane & Co. has a great selection featuring, the oh-so subtle embossing which gives a very impressive look!

Crane & Co.

Don’t forget that our consultants can help you customize and personalize stationery with you from the paper stocks that we have in-store. Now that’s a gift they won’t forget!
