Ladies First

We get asked this a bit...

"Does the female's name go first on the invitation or the male's name?"

When writing the invitations, traditionally it was the bride's parents that hosted the wedding and the wording would read something like this...

"Norma and Michael Smith request the pleasure of the company of Jane & John to celebrate the wedding of their daughter, Lisa-Marie to Johnathan, son of Barbara and Beorge Bell."

From that we take "Lisa-Marie & Johnathan" for the front of the invitation and the couple's logo or monogram.

However, in other parts, especially Europe, it is common that the male partner's name appears first on the front of the invitation and so you would see "Johnathan & Lisa-Marie" instead.

Today it is more common that both sets of parents are hosting the wedding or even that the couple on their own are throwing the party.

There are as many options and choices available as the universe is wide so, as with all things wedding, it is about choosing according to your personal preference while adhering to some sort of etiquette in order not to offend any of the involved. However, at the end of the day it's your day so you need to be happy, first and foremost :)

For us, it will always be "Ladies First", unless you specifically request something else.

For more information and wording suggestions head over to the Useful Information tab on our website
or email us any queries you may need help with.

Brides Wedding Expo Geelong - Thank you all for coming!!

Thanks to all who came to the expo last Sunday in Geelong.
We met many new brides to be but know that some of you missed out on having a chat. We certainly want to answer all your queries so keep those emails coming in.

Our interactive display ensured visitors could have a 'good play' with our different layouts to get a better feel for our invitations and stationery. We have seen so many suppliers "lock up" their wares in tacky plastic folders or behind glass. We are different!
Keeping our goods behind a screen wouldn't do the high quality of our prints and the texture of our specialty papers justice.
If you missed out or simply couldn't come to the expo because you live elsewhere, order a sample now to get your own first hand experience of The Peppertree Collection.

At expos we only ever have a very limited space to display our goodies but rest assured, all invitation designs come with matching Order of Service ceremony booklets, place cards, seating charts, wine labels, menus, gift tags, Thank You cards and more.
And we still have over 70 designs to choose from so head over to our website and start exploring.
Please also bear in mind that you can choose any of our designs in any of our three price categories: single card, folded card and all-in-one invitation (pouch/ pocket fold design). So if you love a design but think you can't afford it - think again! Simply select a price category that suits your budget.

Here is one of our newest members of the family, "Forever Thine, Forever Mine, Forever Ours".
This design features a stylish love bird couple in classic dark red and black on textured white linen card. Perfect to complete any rustic, vintage wedding theme or if you simply like a whimsical touch to your invitations and wedding stationery.
As with all our designs, we can match colours to suit your theme better so if you'd like to change anything at all, just let us know! We make sure you'll be 100% happy. Head over to our testimonials site to read about some of our happy customers.

Save The Date Cards

I just thought I would do a quick post on the all important Save The Date cards.

Often overlooked, these are an important tool when planning your wedding.

Unless you are made out of ice, I know that planning a wedding can be a stressful affair (been there, done that!).

Often you don't know where to start and before you know it you are running out of time and feel overwhelmed by it all.

However, if you book in with a deposit early, then send your Save The Date cards out, you will have nothing to worry about.

The Save The Date card is an inexpensive way to let all your guests know of your special day, kindly asking them to keep the date free for your celebrations.

If you send these 6 - 12 months in advance you can be assured that all your important guests have plenty of time to make travel arrangements and keep time in their diaries for you.

You then have plenty of time to work out the ceremony and all other details.

And because you have booked in early with a deposit you won't have to stress about not getting your stationery in time. With all confirmed bookings we can work on a much shorter turn-around time.
As soon as we receive your deposit, we order your papers, ribbon etc and book you a slot in our busy print queue. That means, when you have all details confirmed & approve your print proofs we are all ready to rock and you will have your invitations produced within 10 working days (not including delivery time).

So there is absolutely no reason to stress - leave all the hard work up to us while you enjoy planning your wedding (rather than losing hair over it!)

The beauty of starting off with your Save The Date cards and having them done by the same professional stationer who will produce your wedding invitations is that you get to introduce your wedding theme early and your entire stationery range will match from start to finish.

If, at the start, you are unsure of what your favourite design may be, we will just keep it simple and stylish for the Save The Date cards and perhaps just go with your initials in a beautiful script, your wedding date and a brief message.

Having your stationery done professionally will ensure that your guest will feel that they are invited to a one-of-a-kind special event from the day they open the envelope of the Save The Date card.

Save The Date cards only cost AU$3 and that includes a magnet on the back and a matching envelope.

For that price don't even think about getting your hands dirty and stress about making them yourself. It really isn't worth the hassle on your part. I know for a fact that although it may sound easy, cutting paper straight, printing in high quality and having a professional looking card without fingerprints and glue marks is a tough task for most. I have had many brides come to me, in tears, AFTER they spent big $$$ at the paper shop thinking they could DIY only to have their home printer splatter ink & eat up their cards, wishing they had come to us earlier.

My expert advise -Don't do it! You wouldn't cut your own hair either - but then again you might, if you are happy to live with the consequences :)

So what are you waiting for??
