Yes, You Really Do Need to Mail Invitations

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Yes, You Need to Mail Paper Party InvitationsMailing your guests paper party invitations sets the tone for your party and creates buzz around your bash.  But, are paper invitations really necessary?

My sister got into a discussion with her hairstylist about paper invitations versus electronic and the stylist described how technology was changing and she had just received a cute emailed invitation that flying birds and how cute it was.

Cute or not, I’m sorry, but when I get an electronic invitation, my first reaction is “Really?”

Is this a last minute party?

Am I a last minute guest?

They couldn’t afford paper and stamps?

Yes, for a last minute cocktail party, I’ll text my friends or call them, but I just don’t trust something as important as their attendance is to my affair to their email inboxes.

Call me old school, but there is just something fabulous about the feeling you get when you open the mailbox and there’s something in there besides bills and ads.

Aside from the fact that I own a company (this one) that prints party invitations, I’m always surprised how cheap I feel when I get an e-invite or an invitation that looks homemade or a postcard the post office has mangled and made almost unreadable. (There are ways to make homemade invitations look fabulous and those aren’t the ones I’m talking about.)

Your invitation is the first impression people have of your party. They can’t see the amazing food on your menu, the incredible way your house is decorated or how much fun it’s going to be.  A laundry list of facts printed on a piece of copy paper and folded into an envelope that looks like a bill, is not going to make it to the top of the pile when it comes to scheduling upcoming events on your guests’ calendars.

You can’t post an electronic invite to your fridge. Well, I guess you could print out some of them, but you’ll lose the flying birds and a lot of its appeal when you try to get it to print on copy paper.

We understand that cost can seem like an issue when you compare it to doing-it-yourself or free emailed invitations, but you only get one shot to make a first impression.  If your invitation doesn’t make the grade, having a bad turnout for your party can be depressing as well as expensive in wasted food, drinks and time.

For the do-it-yourselfers, we do sell some of our invitations blank so you can print them yourself. If you’re not familiar with how to typeset an invitation or how to print on anything but 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper, we suggest you skip the hassle and the learning curve and let us print them for you.  We’ve been printing invitations for over 20 years, we have the cool fonts you would have to search the internet for and if you screw up when printing, you’ll have to buy more invitation paper.

We suggest you skip the stress of DIY and use your time for the million other things you will need to do for a successful party. And, of course, for the best party turnout, go old school and mail party invitations that will excite and entice your invited guests to attend your event.

Can you Have a Bridal Shower if you Plan to Elope?

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

Wedding ElopementA customer recently asked us if it was proper to have a bridal shower if they were planning to elope. The definition of “elope” is “to run off secretly to be married, usually without the consent or knowledge of one’s parents.”

So, in the true sense of the word, if you are running off to secretly get married, it would not be proper to have any type of shower before doing so.

As far as bridal showers go, etiquette states  you should not invite people to wedding showers who are not also invited to the wedding itself. (You don’t have to invite every wedding guest to a shower.)

For clarification, we’re only discussing secret elopements here — not destination weddings — they have their own set of “etiquette rules” to follow.

If you elope, a better choice would be to mail friends and family a printed elopement announcement stating you have eloped and include some fun details such as the date and where you were married. It’s nice to add any change of address of where you are now both residing since your marriage.

Along with this information, you could invite guests to a reception or party to celebrate your marriage that would be scheduled for some time after you’ve returned. This can be a simple cake and punch affair, a backyard barbecue or a full blown wedding reception, but it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. The idea is to celebrate and mingle with people you care about.

But back to the real question — gifts. Will people send you gifts after they receive your announcement or attend a celebration reception after the fact? Honestly, some will and some won’t.

If you choose to register for gifts, do NOT put any registry information on your elopement announcement or reception invitation. It implies you are more interested in getting gifts than celebrating the occasion with your guests (even if that’s true, it’s tacky, so leave it off.)

So how will people know what to give you or what you need or where you’re registered? Make sure your immediate family or best friend that might be asked, know where you are registered. If people call and ask where you’re registered, they can be told at that time. If you mail reception invitations, you can tell people when they reply by phone or by email if they ask. Just as it is not acceptable to include registry information on a printed announcement or invitation, it is also not okay to automatically tell everyone who calls where you’re registered UNLESS they specifically ask you for the information. If you’ve created a wedding website, it is okay to list your registry information there.
