Real Yorkshire Weddings - Abigail & Nicolas

The best thing about meeting a Bride and Groom in person is very often their initial ideas and theme of wedding can sometimes turn into something much better. 
 Abigale & Nick were having a golf themed wedding and during discussion it became clear that some of the ideas may look a little childish and like a kids party invite.

When I was told the Bride was from Yorkshire and the Groom from Durham, I suggested we put the two emblems together and create on that joined them in harmony and this resulted in a nice cohesive blend which we could carry though from the invitations right through to the On the Day stationery. 

Below are just a few of the items I made for them. 





































And a lovely email followed:

Just back from Neasham, sorting out the marquee and wanted to thank you for all your help ,advice and expertise over the last few months. Many guests commented on the seating plan, postbox,order of service and posters, loving the high quality and classiness of all you did. It looked amazing and the whole day was magical and went off as smooth as silk, everything slotted beautifully into place, even the weather after that horrible storm, just as the wedding ars arrived at our house, got drier and drier and sunnier and sunnier, even managed some photos on the river bank. It was just perfect, over too soon and thoroughly enjoyable. Abigail and Nick are going off on a minimoon tomorrow until Friday but will be in touch with her thoughts etc. when she gets back. Peter will drop the easel and post box off at yours on Tuesday. We are going up to Neasham to house and dog sit for them but P has to come back into town for a docs appointment on Tuesday, so will call in. Just a bib thank you you have been a star throughout!

Wording Ideas for Your Wedding Thank You Cards

After planning your entire wedding, you are probably feeling overwhelmed and tired and the last thing you want to think about is Thank You cards. Right? but if your guests hadn’t turned up and bestowed you with both their presence and presents I can assure you, that your wedding would have been pretty crap. The least you can do is send them a card to show your gratitude.


Wording can be a stumbling block so here are a few Wording Examples for Your Wedding Thank You Cards:
1, Thanks to you
“Thank you so much for celebrating with us on our wedding day. It truly was the best day ever and it would not have been the same without you! We are so grateful for your generosity and for sharing our most special day ever with us.”
Your family & friends really made your wedding day, right?
Well tell them by saying: “Best day ever, thanks to you!”

2, Even more magical..
 “Thank you for celebrating with us on our wedding day! Your presence made the day even more magical. We are very grateful and happy to have such amazing friends and family. Thank you for the generous gift. We appreciate all the love and support.”

3, From the gusts of wind..
“We loved sharing our wedding day with you, and we wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the day so memorable, and for your generous wedding gift.
From the gusts of wind during the ceremony to the laughter and tears of happiness during the speeches, to the skilful moves on the dance floor, it made our day so special and one we will never forget.
We feel so lucky to have so many wonderful people in our lives.”

4, Are you feeling lucky?
 “From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank you for celebrating our marriage with us. It was the most incredible day of our lives, and it wouldn’t have been the same without you.
We are so lucky to be surrounded by a beautiful circle of friends and family that made our wedding day perfect. We are grateful for your presence, warm wishes and generous gift and look forward to sharing many more memories with you!”

5, Words that speak volume
“It meant the world to us to have you as part of our wedding day. 
Thank you for the love and laughter that you have contributed to our lives. We are so glad that you were able to join us (insert place or venue name) on our first day as husband and wife.
It was the most wonderful day of our lives and it would not have been the same without you! We are truly grateful for your generosity and presence on our special day.”

6, The most important part
“From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank you for sharing in our special day and making it the most memorable days of our lives. From getting wet during the ceremony and then dancing the night away under the stars on the dance floor we definitely felt the love from you all on the day.
Thank you so much for your generous gift. This will help us create our new home when it is built.
We are looking forward to sharing the next chapter of our lives together and sharing many more memories with you all.” 

7, A dream come true
“We thank our family and friends for celebrating our joy, supporting us and sharing in our love. We sincerely thank you for making our day perfect and sharing in the day our dreams came true.”

8, Spill the beans
“Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day. It was so great to have you all there to celebrate with us.
We really appreciate all your kind and generous gifts and contributions toward our honeymoon. We had the most amazing time travelling around Italy in September/October. 
We can’t wait to see what the future will bring for us and we are excited for you to be a part of it.”

9, Made it!
“We made it through our 1st year!
From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to extend a belated, but heartfelt thank you for travelling near and far to share in the joy of our wedding. We had the most amazing day which was made all the more memorable as we were able to share it with you.

Your love, warm wishes and generous gift are truly appreciated. Thank you!”

PERSONALISED FRUIT INFUSER WATER BOTTLEs

 I had a plan and a play for Christmas 2018. I made 4 bottles, 2 for my son and daughter-in-law and 1 each for the grandkids. 


The plan was I'd leave their main and large presents in Steve's car and put a message in these bottles. None of which any of them asked for nor expected. The bottles were to be the last present to open, leading them to the back of the car as the biggest surprise of all.
Something I used to do when my son was a small and a tradition he's carried on with his kids. 



Everyone loved them so much, I thought they would make great thank you gifts
for the bridal party or hen-do and they can be used for years to come. 







The bottles went down a treat, 
so I've decided to offer them for sale on the website

HOW MUCH! But I could make it myself far cheaper!


A lady wanted to purchase a beautiful hand crocheted dress and spotted a crafter who did absolutely amazing work, but she charged a good price too. The lady thought that her price was way too high so she approached the crocheter and in quite a brusque fashion stated "I want to buy a dress from you, but I think you charge too much." The crafter was a little taken aback but replied "Ok, how much do you think i should charge?" The lady replied “I think you should charge “X” much, because the yarn will cost this much, and ribbons this much, and buttons this much. I even factored in the price of scissors." The final price the lady had calculated was a lot cheaper than the crafters original price, but she said "Ok, deal. You will get it in a week". The customer is very pleased with herself and can’t resist telling all her friends what a fabulous deal she has negotiated and how smart she is, and that in a week she will have her gorgeous crocheted dress.

A week later her parcel arrives in a lovely packaged box. She opens it and inside is yarn, ribbons, buttons and even scissors. Angrily she contacts the crafter asking “How could you do this to me? I asked you for a dress and you sent me a box of yarn, ribbon, buttons and scissors?!" The crafter quietly replies "My dear, you got exactly what you paid for, if you think there is something missing, you need to pay for it."

Moral of the story, when you buy handmade you are not just buying the materials you are buying the crafters, time, effort, love and dedication that goes into making your items. Xxx

REAL WEDDINGS - Sandra & Brian Custom Made Purple Fingerprint Tri-fold Wedding Invitations

Sandra & Brian chose this our Baroque Heart design tri-fold invitation for their day guests but also noticed that I had used the Bride and Grooms fingerprints to make a heart on another design. So, we incorporated the two together to make this fabulous Purple Design. 



They decided on a simpler flat invitation as less information is needed for Evening guests



And here they are together 



The fingerprint hearts are always well loved as
 the couple takes great delight in telling guests
 they are actually their own fingerprints.



The Baroque Heart design lends itself to ANy colour theme.
Whatever your scheme I can make this design to match.

12 Tips on how running my own business can help YOU organise your wedding and fend off the worry monster!


Well… how’s the planning going?
So you feel like you are juggling with all balls up in the air?
Does your mind go into extreme panic about all the things you have to do?
Is time running away with you?
Do you feel like you are getting nowhere fast and worry that you won’t be sorted on time?
Is the planning overwhelming?
Are you loosing sleep at night?
Do you panic when you don’t feel in control?

Hey! ME TOO!

But with these easy to follow steps I learnt through having to juggle many orders at once…. I think I may be able to help you!

Planning a Wedding is no different to making Wedding Invitations and Stationery. Sometimes you feel everything is overtaking you and it’s easy to fall into a blind panic and do nothing at all right?

OK… if this sounds like you… Read on!
If you can’t afford a Wedding Planner then you need to learn some simple tips and tricks to get you through this minefield.

Every little helps as they say.

TIP 1 Get yourself a note book. At LEAST an A5 size. This will be your companion and help clear any clutter from your head. Once it’s down on paper you can forget about forgetting it.

TIP 2: Rule each page into 3 columns: PROJECT, TIME & DUE DATE. Make a long list of all the things you need to do for your wedding. You may want to break down larger projects into smaller ones.
Then enter the time you think it will take to sort out this project and the date when it needs to be completed by. Multiply all the times it will take by 50%. Nothing EVER takes less time and we want to reduce stress.

TIP 3: On a separate page add your suppliers name and contact details. This will stop you having to remember where you found them and how to contact them in a hurry. It’s no use scrabbling around for that all important business card if you actually contacted them through facebook.

TIP  4: Break everything down into manageable tasks. The large tasks can be made into micro tasks, This way you are more likely to fit in a micro task if it will only take a small amount of your time.

TIP 5: Add your dates to a calendar. One that hangs up… so you can see it at a glance. Use highlighter on these dates if you use the calendar for other things. Make it stand out.

TIP 6: If meeting with suppliers meet with only 1 PER DAY! It’s so easy for things to over run. You really don’t need the worry that you have to leave mid consultation or you’ll be late for the next.

At Inspired by Script WE ADVISE ALL COUPLES to the studio to allow 1 hour for their first consultation. Honestly, the time flies by because there’s so much to talk about and consider.

TIP 7: Use part of your journal to write ideas down. Make a clear heading for each supplier. Collect printout photos and add hand written notes. This is great to collect your inspiration.

Or why not get a PINTEREST BOARD… this is the same idea and is a virtual pin board. We find Pinterest fantastic to connect with our couples. Make a board for every supplier you will need and they can easily go and have a look at your board, getting a real feel for your wedding.


TIP 8: BOOK EARLY! Whether it’s your photographer, florist, venue decorator or Stationer BOOK EARLY! Many of us book time slots and dates and can be booked months in advance. It’s important if you want to use certain people to book AS SOON as you have a date! That way you avoid disappointment.


TIP 9: Learn to say YES to help! I know, I know… you want to do it ALL yourself right? But people generally will only offer once. Take all the help you can get, even if it’s just an ear to bend when times get tough… and we all need one of those every once in a while  :-) 

TIP 10: Learn to say NO! This sounds easier than it actually is, but sometimes when things get on top of you, you really have to take a step back and say no. Your time is precious, peoples demands can be put on the back burner for a while. You need to concentrate on what’s important… YOU!

TIP 11: Take a day off! If you find yourself utterly overwhelmed by the whole thing… step back and take a day off from it all. Go for a walk, give yourself a good talking to and tell yourself “It’s only 1 day of the rest of your life”. Everything will work out just fine!

TIP 12: TRUST the professional. You hired that florist/photographer/venue decorator/wedding stationer… because they’ve done it all before and not wanting to sound blunt (but I will) YOU HAVEN’T! Relax! They know what they are doing. Take their advice. They know what works and why, so please when they speak.. listen. If they advise against something, it’s usually for a damn good reason. Let them do their job and that way they’ll give you their very best service. Why? Because their reputation depends on it! We want to be known for our first class service, working our socks off to make your special day “Not just another wedding”. The less you control them, the better they will do. Give them your ideas and see how they roll!!!

BONUS TIP: Make friends with your supplier. They are there to help. Whatever may be keeping you awake at night can be solved by making a call. Most of us are closet social workers you know :-) We are used to dealing with the panic and stress Brides can put on themselves.. When things get on top of you… step away and do something different. Going back to it all fresh, will make things seem a whole lot easier. Don’t get bogged down by trivial things.

REMEMBER: Everything will be alright on the night
