Happy Earth Day!

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

It doesn’t have to be Earth Day for us to think about making less of an impact on our environment.  Here are some of the tips that will help make your wedding green:

1) Use green invitations.  Believe me the quality of recycled paper has come a long way from the 80’s.  This elegant invite gives you the chance to change the world one simple choice at a time.  The paper is made with 100% post-consumer fibers and created without the use of chlorine compounds.  The manufacturer uses a significant amount of renewable energy resources and responsible forest management practices.  http://www.mystylishwedding.com/store/invitations-c-1/go-green-green-seal-certified-recycled-invitation-p-813

2) Banish disposable water bottles!  Hand out these gorgeous re-usable water bottles as favours instead.  These sturdy metal bottles can be personalized any way you like and will help encourage your guest to kick the plastic habit as well!  These were a good example of a customer asking us for something specific that we didn’t have on our site but we sourced them!  Send us an email if you would like us to do the same for you.

3) Use a beautiful seating chart instead of placecards.  We love seating charts because they don’t waste all that cardstock and are made using post-consumer material.  The best part is that they are 100% customizable.  Our brides love them so much that they often hang them in their home after the wedding. http://www.mystylishwedding.com/store/wedding-day-printing-c-30/seating-charts-p-650

It really doesn’t seem to matter how many brides order these save the dates - they always LOVE them - and we’re always excited when they come back from the printer. No matter your style they always seem to be a great fit.

A Token of Love

Monday, April 6th, 2009

 

Whether used for décor or a favor for your guests, these wish20tokens perfectly reflect your special day.

I absolutely love the idea of using them as a way to incorporate your guests into your ceremony. Instead of a unity candle, have a glass vase on the signing table. Once you and your groom have put in your tokens, have the guests add their token to represent their love and support in being there for you on your special day.  It will also keep them occupied before the ceremony begins! Have a token on each seat with a little card explaining what the token is, and what it represents to the couple. It then becomes a stylish and sentimental piece from your wedding day.

 

Or use it vice versa. As a favor, the token can represent your appreciation to your guests in celebrating this joyous occasion with you and your groom! You can dress it up in a little favor box, or use it as a décor piece during the reception.

 

Whatever you decide to do with these wish20tokens, it’s a sure fire way to keep that lovin’ feeling throughout the night!
