Maternity Leave

I’m happy to announce the impending arrival of my first child (a boy!) in late 2016. In preparation for the new addition to our family, I am taking maternity leave from September 2016 through the end of December 2016. I will resume accepting orders January 2017 for wedding items.

My family will be filling orders for engraved items (Cake toppers, ornaments, acrylic table numbers etc) in my absence.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. I will see you all in the new year!

Regards,

Rebekah

How To Save Money on your Weding Stationary (without eliminating Anything) Part 4

How To Save Money on your Weding Stationary (without eliminating Anything) Part 4

Use Standard Sizes – Rectangular Not Square!
I found out the hard way that the post office charges a different rate based on the shape of an envelope. When I went to the post office to mail my (square) invitations for my wedding, I was in for a shock. I mistakenly assumed since my invites weighed less than 1oz I would be able to use standard first class stamps. After talking with the postmaster I discovered the post office considers square envelopes “non-standard” and they charge extra for them!

Money saving tip: If you love both a square and a rectangular style invite, consider the rectangular invite and you will save about $0.20 each on postage! 

Table number tip: Avoid custom framing costs. It is much easier to find a rectangular frame in a standard size!

Beverage Signs for Andrea Griffin Weddings and Events

I’ve had the pleasure of working with several wedding planners over the years, but none have been so professional and easy to work with as Andrea from Andrea Griffin Weddings and Events!

I can already tell Andrea will be an amazing wedding planner, and look forward to watching her new business grow!
