Is There A Wedding In Your Future?

This is one of my favorite times of the year for framing. There are so many fun things happening. Right now weddings are the happenin' thing. I love framing wedding invitations. I've framed invitations brought in by so many different people: the wedding couple, the parents, the wedding consultant, bridesmaids, aunts and uncles, God parents. The list goes on. Every invitation is different and unique and every one of the finished pieces is the most prized memento from the occasion.

Don't let this photo be your guide, either. This is a very basic but beautiful idea. But you can do even more. You can incorporate the wedding colors into the design. You can include in the whole package the bridal bouquet, or a boutonniere, or the veil, the garter, almost any souvenir from the wedding. Well, probably not the cake, but it has been considered. How about a photo of the cake instead?

If you are a guest at the wedding, imagine the bride and groom receiving something like this as a wedding gift. Believe me, they will cherish it for the rest of their lives.

But the wedding invitation isn't the only thing you can consider framing. OK, friends of the couple, how about doing something really fun with the invitation to the bridal shower? These are usually jovial occasions and you can really let your imagination run wild. Again, incorporate the wedding colors or add some of the gift wrapping or ribbons. How about some of the photos from the shower? If you can imagine it, we can do it.

And with my computerized mat cutter, there are so many other options from multi-opening mats to special debossing, V-grooves, or inlays. And for that special hand decorated touch we can add French lines, colored or marbled panels, deckled edges, gilded bevels and more. Come in and see some more ideas and options. We can personalize the perfect gift for the perfect couple.
