Getting Married? Don’t forget the Save The Date!

It’s an exciting time to be engaged – from the proposal, to the big “yes!”, to getting the opportunity to pick a date with the love of your life. Often, the couple may forget that before actually sending out invitations, there are Save The Dates to be sent to the people they may want to share that special day with. Luckily, that’s where we can come in – with Save The Dates that match exactly to our invitations, a whole suite can be created directly with us.

There are so many Save The Date options to choose from, and each have their own special spin to it. From having personal photos of the couple during an engagement photo shoot or a personal photo they may want to share, to just having personalized coasters – we can do it all!

A few of our favorite ones are:

Save-the-dateSittinCoaster-2

Our Save The Date coaster is an adorable alternative. This one featured is our ‘Sittin In A Tree‘ coaster.

SavetheDate

Our Cherry Bloom Save The Date is perfect for weddings taking place in the Spring, or for those couples that want to incorporate a beautiful floral element.

STD-horiz-Luxe-2

For those that want a sophisticated and modern touch to their Save The Dates, this gorgeous Luxe Elegance Save The Date is perfect for it.

We’re more than happy to customize any Save The Date, and of course, are always open to creating the one of your dreams! If you would like to see more Save The Date options, feel free to click here.

Sullivan’s Gulch – Our Newest Suite Addition

There’s nothing like planning a destination wedding. Having the opportunity to share that special day with friends and family in a beautiful location is always a fun and exciting time. With wedding season fast approaching, we’ve been getting busy with invitations, RSVP cards, programs, and so much more. We’re huge fans of working with brides – or even grooms! – who want something customized to suit their special day. Whether it be having a quote that has a special meaning to the couple, highlighting the location, or even enclosing some fun things that the guest may experience when they come to the wedding, we’re more than happy to help achieve that goal.

One of our newest suites is uniquely named ‘Sullivan’s Gulch’. Customized for our client who wanted something fun but still formal, the blue and white solidified the dressy occasion while the map and small compass maintained playful details. We especially loved the Winnie The Pooh quote! Shown below is their invite, reply card, and folding information card.

Tie That Binds Barn Wedding Part V

Here comes our forte: the details! As mentioned by the bride, she was so open-minded to our ideas that we had no problem expressing our true creativity. See how you think the details brought the reception together.

THE DETAILS












































From the bride:
When the time came to create wedding invitations and paper details, I was unaware of the vast amount of choices for fonts, paper, designs and styles. I knew I wanted a rustic theme with hydrangeas and a simple font that reflected mine and my husband’s laid-back personalities. The first custom proof sent from Mekala at Tie That Binds was exactly what I had in mind. She also created our monogram that was beautiful but still fun, so we incorporated it into our invitations, envelopes, and even a table runner that we had at the wedding. To keep everything congruent, she designed adorable signage throughout the reception, cookie bags with stickers, whoopie pie bags as favors, photo booth details, and table numbers. She also styled the tablescapes at the reception with sewing-pattern paper flowers, papier-mâché details, and brought chalkboards, bunting, escort cards with miniature cowbells, and other antique details to complete the style we dreamed of. The products that she had to offer and the details that she brought to the wedding were unlike anything I could have dreamed of, and the guests went on and on about the meticulous attention to the little things.

Tie That Binds Barn Wedding Part IV

As many would say, the reception is the best part! The reception that follows is STUFFED FULL of details created by Tie That Binds! But before moving along to those, check out these endearing and incredible moments caputured by Bryan Aulick.

THE RECEPTION



















From the bride:
At the end of the day, we felt like we had thoroughly enjoyed the best day of our lives. While the wedding was classy, it was also casual and allowed us and the guests to kick back and enjoy just being together. They dressed comfortably, in true Eastern Oregon style, and enjoyed our homemade food and beverages without feeling restricted by a formal event. The intimate setting of the barn gave everyone a front seat view of the ceremony and the reception was filled with lively entertainment and dancing late into the night. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day, and owe it all to our willing friends and family, and the fantastic vendors that made it all happen.

Tie That Binds Barn Wedding Part III

Moving right along to the main event: THE WEDDING! Of course it goes without saying that the brides choice of dress and bridal party attire was beyond tasteful, see her concept behind the bridal party after the jump.

THE WEDDING & BRIDAL PARTY




























From the bride:
When I was looking for a dress, the only detail I knew I wanted for sure was lace. The mermaid style was helpful in hugging all the right areas to create a curvy feminine figure on what was otherwise a more square body type. The weight was comfortable and the design was easy to alter so that I was not pulling it up throughout the day. I ran, danced, and stood for hours in my dress during pictures and still remained comfortable.
The best thing I did to make decisions about wedding attire was to look at pictures of other bridal parties. It helped me see what types of colors and dresses looked good together. I had seen pictures where bridesmaids wore unique styles of dresses. Since I was aiming for a more casual, country look, I let the brides find their own dresses. I asked them to looked for cotton and light fabric dresses rather than the dressier chiffon look, and find shades of ivory. I also knew I wanted the girls to wear cowboy boots, so they found whatever boots they preferred to bring the look together. I loved how their different tastes were varied, but still congruent with the overall feeling of the wedding.
