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.

Portland weather has finally graced us with some sunshine, and we couldn’t help but take notice of how much we love the different kinds of flowers that line our neighborhood streets, the cherry blossoms that have finally come out in bloom, and the Tulip festival that has kicked off in full gear. If you’re looking for invitations or menus that highlight all things flowers, we have different options for you!

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.

Our Summer on Instagram ~ Invitation Suites

Now that Summer has ended, and the mad dash of wedding season has slowed, we’re going to take a week or two to look back over all of our projects from the Summer! We’re always posting these projects on Instagram, so be sure and follow us there, too. The images span far and wide and many of our biggest weddings will be shared in detail later this year, but a few sneak peaks should give you a taste of what we’ve been up to around here!

Let’s start with invitations! The trends this year included black and white, pastel colors like mint, pink, peach, and orange, mixed metallics, and bold patterns. See what you think!

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.
