Unique Save the Dates!
Esty is my new best friend! I love these Save the Dates that I found on my new favorite site

I love how it gives your guest something fun to do! They have some great customizable colors. 
The cards , which are just $25 for 25,  are created by Chicago-based illustration and design company Unless Someone Like You. 
I love these 🙂

Daily Candy Weddings!
I love Daily Candy’s emails. I am so excited that they are now doing a Wedding version!  

Right now it is a little sparse, but I hope it adds new content soon! 

Why I love hors d'oeuvres at weddings?

I truly love some great hors d’oeuvres (even if I can never remember how to spell it!)

I think it is such a great way to infuse fabulous flavors that take people beyond the usual chicken, beef or fish entree. By doing a a wide variety of appetizers you can keep your guests guessing about what the waiters will come out with next!

I love heavy hors d’oeuvres for receptions because it creates a great energy among your guests. It keeps guest flowing throughout the reception. By staggering high and low cocktail tables around your venue people can move around and mingle with each other and talk about how beautiful the bride is 🙂

2009 is all about adding savory, spicy, and exotic flavors to your wedding menu. So think about adding color with these bold sippy soups, chilled tofu, asian-infused wraps to your menu! Or what about mini BBQ sandwiches for my NC weddings!
