Weekly Recap x 2

We've Arrived! Last Saturday (a crazy day in which we met with 13 brides) Stacy and I actually shared a tearful moment at the realization that we've made it...and then celebrated with Perfect Margaritas at Applebee's along with my husband Dave. It was a great day!

We came to that realization because throughout the last two weeks, we have met with 43 brides! The number alone is shocking to us...but we are most blown away that 4 of those brides are getting married in Fall 2010. When it comes to budget, invitations often get the shaft...and these 2010 brides all came in so that they could budget appropriately for the expense of custom invitations. We've haven't signed contracts for weddings this far in advance before now - and we are so excited!

Needless to say, we've been so busy meeting with brides this week that we haven't had the chance to work on too many orders. I did manage to snap a few photos though - here ya go!

Catalog: Invite on shimmer stock with custom touches added

Catalog: Gold pocket with three inserts and violet print

Custom design: Navy pocket with silver and white accents - starfish motif

Custom: Sage pocket with blush pink accents, ribbon wrap and custom monogram

Custom: Hot pink pocketfold with lime green layer - gorgeous typestyle!!

Catalog invitation with a custom 'information card' (in center) designed and made by us to coordinate with the invitation.

Custom: This photo shows a loose pocket with three inserts. It was tied with a sheer ribbon to the invitation panel.

Constantly amazed. I hate to be redundant in our posts, but those are the only words that I can use to describe how we feel every day. In a world where jobs are slashed in a heartbeat and the economy is beyond slumping, our business is flourishing and we owe it all to you! Thanks...and have a great week!
