The Watkinezes don't usually follow the norm when it comes to big events. Our wedding celebration was a perfect example. There was no ceremony, the reception was at a park, and the main entertainment was a ridiculously funny game of drunk wiffle ball. My dress was short and I wore a pair of Toms. The party was simple, comfortable, and all kinds of awesome.
That is why I am always thrown for a loop when I see numbers like the ones below. I realize that we are the minority that didn't spend a lot on our party. Perhaps if we were blessed with a much bigger bank account, we might be one of the many that attribute to these statistics, but we are hoping to save for a home, so it just wasn't practical at the time. Believe me, we would have had a Disney World wedding if we could!
I give major props to all that can afford it. The gorgeous destination wedding, the unforgettable honeymoon, the oh-so-cute puppies given out as party favors at your kick ass bridal shower - YOU DO YOU. The number one thing I have always loved about weddings is that they directly reflect the couple for who there are. Highlighting everything that makes them perfect for each other.
So why am I talking about weddings? Because the season is here!
Typically, most parts of the country designate wedding season to be April through October, mainly because of the weather. However, December weddings have become popular in recent years. Still, it's pretty safe to say that spring and summer weddings are the easiest to plan. Tons of flowers in bloom, light weight dresses, outdoor receptions and all that jazz. Frankly, you can have a wedding any day you want.
Cozy Reverie offers bridal greeting cards all year round. They can be personalized as well! Recently, the "So You Wanna?" card was customized to feature the wedding colors for the bridesmaid dresses. The perfect touch to make your wedding memorable.
Best part? Once you buy the instant download card, you can print as many as you want! Starting at $3 a file, you get an unlimited amount of engagement announcements, bridesmaid proposals, and other much needed stationary. Easy, quick, and totally affordable!
Did you want stationary created just for you? That can be done too! Just contact me via the Etsy shop and let's start a-talkin'. Just this past month, I custom made some save-the-dates, maid of honor proposals, and bridesmaids cards. I freakin' love it, man. For realsies.
I draw, make, and occasionally tell a story.
