His+Hers=Ours: Five new wedding ideas

Hello again, I hope you had a lovely couple of months. His+Hers=Ours is back to talk about Scott’s and my new, exciting wedding ideas!

Scott and I have been busy, busy this summer. We’ve gone to five weddings and we still have three to go! Now that we’re engaged, we go to each wedding looking at all the details to see what inspires us and what we could do at our wedding. It’s been fun picking up wedding ideas from all of them and thinking of ways to put our own twist on them. Here are some of our favorite ideas:wedding ideas

First Dance. At one of the wedding receptions, after the DJ announced the entire wedding party – ushers, bridesmaids, groomsmen and the newly Mr. & Mrs. – the bride and groom went straight into their first dance with their wedding party surrounding the dance floor. We had never seen this before and it was absolutely wonderful. Everyone was so engaged with the dance, taking pictures, tearing up and watching the love between them. At other weddings we haven’t noticed the first dance as much, because it’s usually after guests have eaten and everyone is finishing their dinner or dessert, getting a drink or visiting the restroom – it isn’t exactly the most romantic time of the evening. I feel the first dance is a special moment between the newlyweds, and we want our closest friends and family to see it. I know they will, if we use this idea. Continue reading

Pet Peeve: Cards that cost as much as the gift

Notelettes for giftsThere are many kinds of gifts, some extravagant, some simple, some thoughtful, some obligatory. This time of year we bring gifts wherever we go, and the expense can really add up—especially when the gift wrap and a card cost almost as much as the gift itself!

Gone are the days of attaching a card to every gift. These days, if I buy a card, the card IS the gift, usually with cash or a gift card tucked inside. But sometimes I do want to write a special message to accompany a gift—when I won’t be there to hand it to the recipient in person, for example. For these occasions, I look for inexpensive but tasteful gift card ideas, and have found that our mini note cards are perfect for this.

Mini note cards are about the size of a business card or gift card from a store. They are too small to be mailed, but are perfect for tucking into a bouquet of flowers, attaching to a bottle of wine, or taping to a gift like a gift tag. These personalized cards gives you just enough room to express your thanks or good wishes without doubling the cost of your gift. And sometimes that’s all you need.
