Real StudioWed Nashville Wedding: Heather + Jason

What a fun, beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple! Heather and Jason were surrounded by love and well wishes at their April 12th wedding ceremony at Scarritt Bennett’s Wightman Chapel.  Heather was glowing in a gown reminiscent of Kate Middleton’s dress at the royal wedding and just as gorgeous were the details at their Houston Station reception – complete with an impressive soundboard groom’s cake and a line dance to Copperhead Road at the bride’s request.

The Weekly Post: A StudioWed Nashville Etiquette Series | Invitations

Did you know that it’s National Etiquette Week? We couldn’t ask for a more appropriate time to kickstart our weekly wedding tips and etiquette series inspired by the expert herself, Emily Post.  Today, we start off our series with the “Essential Wedding Invitation Do’s and Don’t’s” with some pretty examples brought to you by Hardink Calligraphy and Amber Housley!

  • Do allow plenty of time. Plan enough time in your schedule to carefully address, assemble, and mail your invitations.
  • Do get organized. Develop a system for addressing and mailing your invitations. Prepare by gathering the names and addresses of everyone on your guest list.Arrange each piece that goes into an invitation in a stack, in the order it will be picked up, assembled, and inserted into the envelope.

  • Do ask for help. Invite friends, family or bridal attendants to help assemble invitations.
  • Do use the names of all guests when possible. It is much warmer and more welcoming to use the correct names of those who will accompany your guests on invitations instead of “and guest.”
  • Do use Correct Titles. It’s flattering when invitations are addressed correctly. This means using appropriate titles and spelling names correctly. When in doubt, ask before addressing.

  • Don’t forget to include any appropriate inserts, such as maps, directions or hotel information for out-of-town guests.

  • Don’t include registry or gift information with your invitation. It is in poor taste to insert a list of places where the bride and groom are registered or a checklist of the things they want and don’t want.
  • Don’t use a standby guest list. When possible, invite your entire guest list at the same time rather than waiting to see how many people accept before sending out a second round of invitations. When the guest list is carefully planned, and when you consider the likelihood that 10-20 percent of invited guests typically send regrets, this approach is much more straightforward than using a standby list.
  • Don’t address invitations with labels. Always address wedding invitation envelopes by hand, even when inviting hundreds of guests.
