Well today is our last day of Favorite Vendors...and I am so excited about our 2 vendors today! I have loved stationary since I was a little girl and while most kids wanted toys for their birthdays and Christmas I always asked for "fun" stationary! So today we are highlighting two custom wedding stationary designers! They are both so fabulous and so talented! Every time I meet with both of them I get so excited to see what they are doing and what is new in the industry! Thank you all for stopping by this week to see the vendors we work with on all our fabulous events! So without further Adieu let me first welcome Nessa Sander for Cardgirl Invitations....
Hello! My name is Nessa Sander. I own Cardgirl Invitations and run the CardgirlDIY blog. Thank you so much to A Savvy Event for inviting me to guest blog today!
Cardgirl Invitations is a custom design studio, specializing in letterpress wedding invitations. Because we do all custom work, we are able to incorporate custom artwork, colors and calligraphy into your invitation design. This adds such a personal touch to the invitations, as it offers a true one-of-a-kind look.
After the invitations have been mailed, I often work with my clients to "complete the look & feel" with wedding programs, escort cards, thank you notes, stickers…just about anything created on paper. I am also not shy about passing along the artwork to my clients for some DIY projects…as I know it all starts adding up. I have also created a DIY site for those clients of mine.Here's a quick summary of my favorite trends for 2009 wedding invitations:
