  • The Truth About Envelope Liners

    An angry mob of stationers will be at my door by the end of this blog entry, because I'm here to tell you the truth about envelope liners. Sure, they're beautiful and add that extra touch to your wedding suite.

    And your guests probably aren't going to see them.

    Don't get me wrong, I love a good envelope liner. They're truly exquisite and are like an extra canvas in a wedding suite. They can be patterns, pictures, text, maps, anything you want really. On top of being lovely, evenleope liners are also ridiculously easy to DIY. Templates are readily available in craft stores and online, making it easy to cut lines from large sheets of patterned paper.

    But realistically, once you seal your envelopes, it's unlikely anyone will see the pretty liner that you worked so hard on. From a practical standpoint, most people slit envelopes open across the top, leaving the flap adhered. This means that not only will your guests not see the lined flap, but the portion of the liner not adhered to the envelope is likely to fall out when the envelope contents are removed. 

    Again, I love beautifually lined envelopes, but I also feel it's my duty to disclose the most fiscally responsible choices to couples planning weddings. I want your big day to be special and everything you've ever dreamed of, but I also don't want you to have to break the bank in order to have that dream day.

  • Snap Your Wedding

    Wedding hashtags are still very popular, and couples get pretty creative coming up with different ways to involve their guests on social media. Snapchat, while not new anymore, is still expanding the ways it engages its users, and one of the best ways is opening the creation of geofilters to the general public two years ago.

    For reasons I cannot fathom, custom wedding filters for Snapchat haven't caught on like wildfire. A custom geofilter is a unique feature, great for weddings and any other event that you want to add a distinct and personal touch to. They are a fun way to engage guests in your big day and get some truly memorable snapshots to look back on later (or not, if you're not quick to screenshot them!).

    I will now be offering custom wedding filters to all of my clients. If you're looking to have one designed, shoot me an email at aheinrichdesign@gmail.com. Pricing will vary depending the location and duration of your custom Snapchat geofilter. I look forward to adding this fun factor to your big day!

    Note: a single Snapchat geofilter can only be applied to one location. If your ceremony and reception are in two different places, I would suggest applying the filter to the reception instead of the ceremony, as it's definitely the location where you're more likely to get the fun and silly Snaps! Plus, you really don't want guests on their phones during your entire ceremony.
