Deciding how to word your wedding invitation can be challenging. The wording on the invitation will depend on the formality of your wedding as well as who is hosting. If you are planning a casual wedding the wording can be fun and playful, if your wedding is going to be more traditional you will want to use more traditional wording. The most important details to include are the names of the bride and groom, wedding date and time and ceremony location. Here are a few examples of wording.

Ideas to inspire your homemade wedding decorations

We all now weddings can be expensive and we’re always looking for ways to ‘keep the costs down’. Incorporating handmade items into weddings has become growing trend over the last few years and sometimes you just want something that doesn’t exist in the stores.

Inspired by the recent Handmade Expo in Wellington we thought we’d put together a collection of handmade wedding decor ideas to inspire.

Ideas for handmade wedding decor are virtually endless, from bunting and banners to paper lanterns and string chandeliers. One of our favourites is painted wooden signboards for directions and seating assignments. You can even go as far as arranging your own flowers, with a few simple materials such as glass preserving jar and a bit of lace.
