Weekly Recap 2/15 - 2/21/09

I'm working by myself today because Stacy is in a wedding. Saturdays have been crazy around here and I have been dreading being by myself. Luckily we had not one single bride request an appointment for today - as opposed to every other Saturday in January and February being COMPLETELY booked. It seems crazy to be thankful for that, but I very much am! I'll just have to juggle the walk-ins (and hopefully finish this blog) which should be manageable.

We had a super busy week - again! I think we are starting to see where the economy is impacting weddings - guest count. Couples seem to be cutting their guest lists to include only closest family and friends and we aren't seeing as large of orders. Last years average order was around 130 pieces and this years is more like 100. A difference in 30 invitations translates to around 60 that is a big difference! Our number of booked weddings continues to increase as we are still meeting a record number of brides and we are thankful.

Here's a photo review for this week:
