Bunches of Bliss...Elevating Events, Designing Details, and Bits of Wedding Sunshine

Browsing the topic Invitations

A Touch of Bliss created a romantic Vail wedding on the Vail Wedding Deck and Arrabelle Hotel. There where Rustic and elegant details. Geodes that were part of the eclectic centerpieces doubled as guest favors. The ceremony overlooked the Vail Mountains on the Vail Wedding Deck, and the words to the couple’s favorite Beatle’s song welcomed them into dinner. They danced into the night at The Arrabelle Tavern!

Special thanks to all the vendors that mades this beautiful Vail wedding happen!

The staircase at many venues creates a beautiful backdrop for photos, and a majestic entrance for a bride and groom into their party. Here are a few staircase decor options that we love, what are your ideas to decorate a hand rail?

Two things:

1) I think we need a different acronym for Save-The-Dates than STD

2) I realized this after re-reading my first attempt at a title for this post and saw that it said “STD LOVE”.  That, my friends, is a completely different kind of blog!!!

What I am about to show you is nothing but class, elegance and a bit of quirkiness. Mr. Boddington’s Studio is an eccentric little shop set in the middle of bustling New York City where the elusive Mr. Boddington (be sure to read his bio on the website) comes up with the most adorable, personable and unique correspondence a gal (or guy!) could ask for.  Check below for some lovely inspiration through some recent STD’s …Save-The-Dates of his.  (Hint: The rest of the blog is CHOCK-FULL of exceptionally gorgeous wedding inspiration! So read on!)

Some sample Save-The-Dates

Thanks to my dear friend and designer back home, Allie for pointing us towards this prettiness!

Colorado is a wedding destination for many brides and grooms, and even more often, their many guests who may be visiting Colorado for the first time. This custom map that highlights important locations for your wedding weekend – what a fun idea for a save-the date, or an inclusion in your wedding invite. Offered for $135.00 by One Lonely Apricott on Etsy.

On the planning track towards Maui, I met with Julie of JS Designs for lunch at the very lovely Gaia to discuss the Save-the-Dates and Invitations for our vow renewal in 2010. I brought a few examples for inspiration – I want a fun, unexpected invitation that will surprise our guests. Although only 30 of these beauties will be made, they will be little works of art!
