With all the different styles, designs, and texture of paper, it can be so overwhelming when choosing the ‘Perfect Invitation’ for one of the most important days of your life, your wedding day. Brides are always saying, there are so many choices, how will I to be able to make a decision?
The answer is simple. Stay true to yourself and let the invitation be a reflection of who you are.
This past winter, the very charming wedding planner, Yadi Rose set an appointment for her bride and groom [with Ernesto Leston of Invitations by Leston], Lori Miller and Marc Worman, to select the invitation and paper products for their September wedding. Lori’s style of invitation was formal and elegant. “I wanted something that displayed understated elegance and said Timeless,” said Lori. With Lori and Marc’s vision and ideas, [they] all worked together to select and design the most unique ensemble of paper products that reflected the couple’s personality.
Lori and Marc’s menus, programs, and escort cards were in ivory paper with black ink to keep the harmony with the wedding invitation. The invitation had their monogram in gold foil. The paper was thick paper stock.
The escort cards were placed in small envelopes with the name of each guest and with the table number assignment. In addition to all of the paper products, Lori enjoyed the chocolate almonds that I treated her to when selecting her invitation so she decided to have them as her guest favors. The chocolate almonds were covered in gold and place in a small box with the gold foil monogram. This was truly a welcoming treat to her guests.
When asked about her experience with Invitations by Leston, Lori replied,
“Ernesto at Invitations by Leston was a pleasure! Ernesto is extremely detailed oriented and great on what he does. When you visit with Ernesto he is such an entertainer. My husband and I loved visiting Ernesto for our paper products. He had a great selection, was extremely helpful, and always served us goodies (chocolate covered almonds in different varieties, no wonder we ended up serving them for our wedding favors). Ernesto is one of the most professional people in the wedding industry; he was always responsive to all of our needs, and prompt with answers to our questions. We are still waiting for our glasses of champagne, we know Ernesto loves to host Happy Hour!”
