Bridal Week – Day 1

Susan & Luke - getting married this Saturday!

It's true I love all things wedding. I still read wedding blogs, flip through wedding magazines at the grocery store, and don't even get me started talking about the Royal Wedding… In honor of my friend Susan's wedding this Saturday 5/21, I am showcasing what you can do with your PSA Essentials custom stamps and Peel & Stick™ designs this week. Our talented team of designers came up with some great ideas. 

Anthonette Chavez created a Save the Date using the very handy "Save the Date" stamp from PSA Bouquet Toss Peel & Stick. She typeset "Andrea & Joshua" and information, printed it on a picture, adhered to cardstock, & stamped. This is something that anyone can do! You do not have to be a professional crafter here. Easy and adorable!

It's important to have a coordinating invitation with your save the date, and even better when the colors of your wedding coordinate with all of your stationery. Anthonette created a matching invitation to her save the date, both set the tone for the style of the wedding. I love the twine, ribbon, pearls and stamped cake.

Have you been to a wedding with a guest photo booth? It was on my list to have at our wedding but ultimately got cut as costs started skyrocketing. I've seen such great party photos of people at a wedding photo booths– like this one I just found online. They are always so funny and really spice up your albums when contrasted to your formal wedding pictures.

Anthonette created a sign to point guests in the right direction, should you be lucky enough to have a photo booth. She stamped the "love" red heart from PSA Bouquet Toss.

Anthonette created a favor bag. Add some chocolates or local delicacies inside. She took a lot of care in coloring in the stamped wedding cake!

I love how the Twinery twine and PSA Stamps coordinate in each project and ties everything together. Let us know what you think today!
