Wedding Couture

When you are planning your wedding, a lot of thought and time goes into bridal dress selection. Did you know that fashion couture transcends to paper products as well? From color, texture, material (100% cotton papers, bamboo, even veneers) and design, there is a entire fashion element in today’s wedding invitation selection.

The sky really is the limit. Be aware that you will likely pay more for a customized look, but if you are striving for a truly unique look, as many brides are leaning towards, you will be thrilled at the final product. If you spend a lot of time searching for the right dress, it only makes sense to spend time with your invitation consultant to find the perfect invitation ensemble that will make your guests feel like they are receiving a personalized gift in the mail. Make your invitation something you want to save forever and know others will save it too! Choose an invitation that is beautiful, artful; it is something that must be put away in a pretty box and kept as a memorable keepsake. I am always pleased when young ladies who come to me as clients, bring with them years of wedding invitations that they have collected and that influenced them on what they would like to choose for their wedding invitation.

The other night I was watching the weekly reality show on TLC, to “Say Yes to the Dress.” What I find interesting that when brides enter the doors of the famous Kleinfeld store in New York, they are surrounded by breathtaking style and design (for fun, click on my title above, “Wedding Couture” to go directly to the Kleinfeld blog). At Occasions, we feel that we are surrounded by great designers and style as well. For instance, did you know that we carry Monique Lhuillier invitations…Kleinfeld has Monique Lhuillier gowns. We are pleased to be carrying Lily Pulitzer, Kat Blu, Smock and others. High fashion is available in small places.
