Mother Daughter Matching Party Dresses

MomMeMatch.com has done it again 🙂 We are obsessed with these mother daughter party dresses for fancy Easter parties, or for spring and summer weddings, or for just about any special occasion.  The featured girl’s outfit is a light pink and black color block dress from Janie & Jack.  The mom’s coordinating blush and light pink color block dress we found on Rent the Runway so although still pricey, you get to wear a gorgeous high end designer dress for a fraction of the cost of buying it. This particular stunner is Narciso Rodriguez’s Geo Shift Dress which retails for $1695 but can be rented for $225. It’s flowy fabric brings an element of softness to this updated blush and black shift completed with minimalist heels and a messy-chic bun.  What more can we say – both gals will turn heads with their mother daughter almost matching party dresses.

Here are just a few more options in blush, emerald green, black and navy, white, and deep blue.  Oh so pretty.  Oh so chic & elegant. And now, oh so affordable designer dresses with Rent the Runway. Continue Reading →

Fall Wedding Save the Dates, Invitations & Stationery

We know this might seem a bit premature but it is NOT TOO EARLY to begin planning your Fall wedding.  In fact, End of March – May are the months to get your Save the Date mailed. Remember the whole process takes time – try not to be in a rush.  Also, if your mailing requires more than 1 stamp, please make sure you order enough the first time because you never know if the stamps will still be available when you go to mail your final invite.  Mixed stamps give a sloppy first impression.

Here are a few things to consider:

Autumn Wedding Colors

The colors you naturally think of for fall (deep reds, oranges, and browns) work great, but if you want to open it up a little, consider olives, purples, dark yellows, and cream.

Some great color combos include:

Eggplant – Dark Olive – Light Olive Chocolate – Dark Red – Orange Chocolate – Light Brown – Cream Eggplant – Chocolate – Light Brown

Fall weddings are just around the corner and it is none to early to begin planning.
Here are some things to consider:

Dates

The very first detail you must consider is the date and time of your wedding however do not order your invitations or save the dates before you confirm your venue. It is not uncommon to have to adjust your dates around venue availability or alternatively, adjust your choice of venue around the dates.

Colors

The colors you naturally think of for fall (deep reds, oranges, and browns) work great, but if you want to open it up a little, consider olives, purples, dark yellows, and cream.

Some great color combinations include:

Eggplant – Dark Olive – Light Olive
Chocolate – Dark Red – Orange
Chocolate – Light Brown – Cream
Eggplant – Chocolate – Light Brown

Save the Date

While traditional etiquette calls for sending save the date cards (or magnets) out six months before the big day, there is no reason why you can’t send them out 4-5 months out for a late fall wedding.

Especially for your out-of-town guests who need to plan around school and possibly babysitters, they will appreciate any advanced heads up. We recommend Wedding Paper Divas, where you can choose from thousands of designs and then customize them with your own text, pictures, etc. You can send cardspostcards, or even magnets.

Invitations 

Wedding Paper Divas also has hundreds of invitation designs, with nearly 70 specifically for fall weddings.

You can choose a design that matches your colors, a design with or without pictures, and customize them to your tastes. Whatever design you choose, they are sure to impress.

Invitations should be sent approximately eight weeks before the wedding.

Tip: For best results and a potential price break, order all of your stationery at the same time. Usually sites like Wedding Paper Divasoffer discounts for ordering matching invitations, programs, menus, and place cards. It also helps you to make 100% sure the designs are exactly the same (same colors, fonts, etc.)

There is no better source than Wedding Paper Divas for all of your wedding needs. Whether you order invitations or not, you will definitely want to check out their free wedding web sites. You can pick a theme to go along with over 40 of their most popular wedding invitations.

Bridal Showers

One last thought – bridal shower invitations should be mailed about 4 weeks before the shower unless of course, there are lots of guests making the trip from out of town and then additional notice would be appreciated.  Recently we received a bridal shower invitation in November for a mid-July shower.  And  then received a reminder again in April.  We were appalled.  The shower is not the wedding and should never be treated as equal.
