So, you’re engaged!

You’ve tackled the big stuff:  Location, Entertainment, Caterer, Photographer, Florist, Rentals and Cake…  Now, it’s time for some of the details.  For a go-to check-list, we rely upon our friend, Wendy Joblon, long-time wedding planner and owner of Folia in Padanaram Village.   Wendy suggests sending “Save the Date” cards at least 9 months before your wedding.  Then, six to eight months before your event, it’s time to focus on your customized wedding invitations.  You want your invitation to be a direct reflection of your big day.  Formal, traditional or totally modern; invitations are an exciting and important part of your wedding.  Color, style and proper wording are an essential part of your invitation.
