Brooke and Matthew live in San Francisco and started their fall engagement session at their home in the Lake Street Neighborhood. From there, they went exploring in Golden Gate Park and finally ended the day at Baker Beach–just in time to catch the sunset. What a versatile city San Francisco is and these engagement photos have it all–from natural textures and great iconic structures to running on the beach with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. A gorgeous couple and a gorgeous city… Enjoy!

Today’s “Color Monday” is all about embracing the earthy elements and textures of fall. If you’re considering a palette for your fall wedding, a bronze and teaberry pink combo offers a sweet tension–that’s both masculine and feminine at the same time. Naturally beautiful, you can almost hear leaves crunching underfoot and the smell of nutmeg in the air. And to set the tone for our outdoorsy affair, we’ve personalized the Rectangle Invitation from the Secret Garden design suite {check out this post to see it originally designed in blue and white}. Floral elements and contrasting fonts complement each other making this design lovely for a fall event.

Personalize this design in your colors–or request free samples in bronze and pink.

Today’s wedding inspiration celebrates a classic twist on a 17th century earthenware pattern: blue and white Delft. Gorgeous for a contemporary wedding, here’s designer, Jen, to tell us more about the inspiration behind her new design suite, Secret Garden.

“I took a classic, timeless design pattern and put a modern twist on it. Blue and white Delft has a sophisticated, feminine look–which makes it a fantastic look for weddings. Mixing fonts and florals furthered the delicate, vintage yet modern feel.”

5 Common Wedding Program Mistakes

Categories Wedding Planning + Wedding Stationery

*Sale*  20% off  Half-fold Wedding Programs  |  Code: WAGHFP | Expires 8/27/14

Smart and Stylish…  The tone of your wedding ceremony is set through the tone of your wedding program. They’re conversation starters and your guests will read them! Below are 5 common mistakes to avoid while planning your wedding programs.

Tea-length Wedding Program from MagnetStreet + 5 common mistakes to avoid when planning your programs.

{featured: Vision of Love Tea-length Wedding Program}

#1. Not putting a personal twist on your program design!

Let your personality shine! Your program is a practical stationery item but it’s also a keepsake and another opportunity to carry your colors, coordinate your theme and share your personal side. Choose the size and shape that best fits your personality and wedding style. A few noteworthy items:

  • a snapshot of your love story
  • poems & other unique wording
  • special thank yous, memorials, dedications

#2. Not giving yourself enough time to prepare!

Program preparation is paramount! As the order of events and music can change at the last minute, this stationery piece is usually the last item to be ordered. Start early. Be aware:

  • does your place of worship have strict guidelines i.e. music?
  • check acoustics at ceremony site–it might not be right with your selected music
  • is your timeline and order of events reasonable?

#3. Not proofreading your program!

No misspells! Have a few trusted family and friends take a look at your program to make sure you’ve got the deets down and in the right order. A few proofing items include:

  • listing out the wedding music: “song” (composer) performer
  • ensure there are no typos
  • order of events is correct

#4. Not including the important details!

 Consider your content! Programs are conversation starters that also help guests get comfortable right from the start. And, guests are wondering about the important people taking a major role in your big day! Remember, programs are keepsakes too. Consider adding:

  • short, wedding party intros/bios
  • who’s who: readers, musicians
  • explanation of wedding rituals/traditions

#5. Not taking advantage of discounts and giveaways!

Be budget conscious! When you take advantage of discounts and giveaways {not just on your programs–but on all of your stationery items} you have a better chance of staying on budget and even getting a few of those extras you have your heart set on! YAY.
