I Do, Hair Do.

1/09/2019 2:10 PM

It’s always a stressful time when you are planning your own wedding. There are so many things to think about; the date, the guests, the location, the design of your dress, the décor, and the list goes on. One thing that is usually as important as the dress is the hair. It is what will shape your face on the day and says a lot about the type of person you are. There are many things to consider when deciding on the hair do for the big day.

Firstly, you have to style your hair according to its length and thickness. Long, thick hair looks great in curls or in a tightly pulled back bun or topknot. There are also lovely braids and French buns that can be used to keep the hair away from the face. My favourite is the messy fish tail tucked into a French bun to one side. (See top right image) It is elegant, yet not so manicured as some wedding hair dos.

I, for one, love hair accessories and since I have just cut all my hair off I have fun with headbands, clips, headbands and half up-half down styles. The flower wreath depicts a lovely seventies vibe or a diamante headband or accessory adds glam to your hairstyle.

There is so much inspiration on the web for styling hair where you can find quick, step-by-step guides to styling all sorts of hair types. Why not search for a few styles you like and have a girly night in where you experiment with different hairstyles? Tt might help with the decision making when it comes to styling your hair on the big day.

 Here is a list of 20 online hair tutorials that will get you thinking http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2013/03/20-hair-tutorials-we-love.html and also be sure to take a look at our inspirational images on our pinterest page here. https://www.pinterest.com.au/paperdivas/boards/

Wishing Wells Explained

21/05/2019 11:50 AM

Whether to graciously accept gifts or politely request a wishing well, is a topic most couples discuss before sending out their wedding invitations. More often than not we see couples opting for a wishing well. This can mean receiving money to spend on the things you really love, want and need.

But what is the best way to request money on your wedding day?

Each week we read many wishing well requests, from simple one line sentences to longer rhyming verses. Asking for money can feel a little daunting or even a little impersonal. Thus we have put together a list of our 6 favourite ways to deliver your request. Meaning both you and your guests will feel comfortable with the wishing well arrangement.


1.  This wishing well kindly asks yet gently reassures your guests of your happiness in simply sharing your special day with them. 

Our two families have come together as one.
We really hope you can join in the fun.
A wishing well we thought would be great,
But only if you wish to participate.
A gift of money is placed in the well,
Then make a special wish, but do not tell!
Please do not be offended by our request,
As our day is complete having you as a guest.

2. A simple easy light hearted request is often best.
We made a commitment some time ago,
That together through life we were destined to go.
To save you looking, shopping and buying,
Here is an idea, we hope you’ll like trying!
Come to our wedding,to wish us both well,
And please make a donation, to our wishing well.

3. For the couple who's house is full of all they need this wishing well is ideal.

Soon you will hear our wedding bell,
As friends and family wish us well.
Our household thoughts are not brand new,
We have twice the things we need for two.
Since we have our share of dishes and bedding,
We're having instead a wishing well wedding.
But more important we ask of you,
Your prayers of love and blessings too!

4. A nice warm hearted gesture, this poem assures your guests any contribution is appreciated.

Many of our guests have inquired
For a gift idea to be inspired
Like many couples today
We have most things anyway
If you would oblige, it is our request
For an addition to our treasure chest
A gift of money you can afford
Is just what we need you can be assured

5. The tradition of gift giving can be hard to break! This wording is the perfect way to request a wishing well yet also reassure your guests you will be happy with a gift too!

If finding a gift is hard to do,
Perhaps our wishing well is for you.
A gift of money is placed in the well.
Then make a wish… but do not tell.
If, however, a gift you’d prefer to find.
Be assured we will not mind.

6. For those who would like their guests to participate with a sweet bird cage!

We love birds have it all
family, friends and love galore
 
If finding a gift is hard to do
then our bird cage is just for you
 
A gift of money is placed in the cage
which will help us along through our next stage
If it is however a gift you find
we're sure a place for it we'll find
 
But most importantly we request
that you join us as our guest

Wedding Dress Love.

1/04/2019 2:09 PM

Congratulations! You’re getting married!! As you’ve probably already realised, now the abundance of planning and choices begin – you have to pick flowers, invitations, colours, food (and the list goes on and on). But one of the most exciting (and daunting) choices you will make is picking out your wedding dress. Most brides will agree that (apart from choosing their groom!) the dress was one of the most important decisions of their wedding day. After all it has to be the dress of your dreams right!?! No pressure ladies!

Thankfully, we live in a world where Pinterest exists and before you know it you will have your “MUST HAVES” and “OMG I LOVE THIS DRESS” boards down to a couple of hundred pins!  Check out our Pinterest wedding dress board to get you started (two of my favourites shown below).

Happy Pinning!!

 

As you gear up to make your way down the aisle, pinning your “something blue” to your dress and tweaking your bouquet for stray leaves, knowing you’ll soon be faced with a familiar audience can be daunting. While the day will be (hopefully) filled with plenty of entertainment, moments to be treasured and relationships to embraced, there’s still the added responsibility of ensuring all guests have walked away with a smile as big as yours.

 

It’s long been a tradition that guests can be gifted with little gestures and gifts that say “thank you” in a simple way. During the ceremony and reception, it’s inevitable that the bride and groom may struggle to get around to each and every person attending the event, so thanking them for coming becomes even harder. Luckily, coming up with some creative ways for them to take something home with them to cherish or enjoy, serves as a great way to show appreciation for the presence on the day.

 

Here’s a few unique wedding favour ideas we’ve become inspired by…

 

 

Unisex bath salt sachets from Harvest Bliss!
@harvest_bliss  |  www.harvestbliss.bigcartel.com

Think of it as a little bag of replenishment. This custom-made sachet of botanical hints of real herbs and fragrant, nourishing bath salts to give you a touch of R&R when you need it most. Perfect for both males and females, this little wedding favour is a great way to top off the day and give your guests something to rejuvenate in when they may just be feeling a little worse for wear the next day.

 

 

 

Hessian succulents from Fat Cat Pots!
@Fat_Cat_Pots  |  www.fatcatpots.com.au

 

Little succulents in cutely wrapped hessian pots—need we say anything more? Probably, because these cuties are a great way to appreciate guests of all ages. Kid-friendly and easy on the eye, these little ones are the perfect addition for the kitchen, bathroom benchtop or coffee table. Pop one in front of each guest’s setting on their table and let them take home something they can actively treasure day in, day out.

 

 

 

Organic scented candles from Coast Candle Sydney!
@coastcandlesydney  |  www.coastcandlesydney.com

Featuring a stunning collection of organic, natural scents and delicious fragrances, Coast Candle Sydney offers a range of soy candles for all tastes. We’re especially fond of these custom designed options that pay tribute to both your special day and the guests that have attended. Add your own touch with a personalised design from this talented team to put the cherry on top.

 

 

Congratulations Kylie and Eamonn! #wedding #sydneywedding #weddingfavours #weddingfavoursideas

STRUGGLING WITH YOUR WEDDING INVITE WORDING? WE HAVE THE ANSWERS

Your wedding invitation wording can be done in countless ways, which can best reflect the style of your occasion & also your personalities. Typically, the wording on a wedding invite will normally include some or all of these elements:

the hosts,
who is invited (with or without guestname personalisation),
bride and groom names,
date & time,
location details
reception details,
R.S.V.P. deadline & contact details.

It’s ok to be creative (we encourage it!), but it is imperative to still remain clear and concise with all the pertinent information for your guests on your wedding invitation. Utilising additional wedding stationery accessories like RSVP Cards, Extra Information Cards & Wishing Well Cards is a great way to keep your invitation simple & elegant.

Refer to our quick guide to help choose the best style for your own wedding invitation wording! And remember our team of Designers at Paper Divas have years of expertise, and are here to help!

Our Specialty Carstocks Explained

1/01/2019 3:51 PM

 

 

Choosing which cardstock to print your wedding stationery onto may be one last little decision that really can tie your theme together! Our Linen and Shimmer cardstocks are both unique and special in their own ways.

We have test printed all of our designs on both cardstocks to ensure that they look amazing, but choosing your cardstock can really change the tone of your event. We are frequently asked for our advice on which cardstock will look best on certain invitations so we have prepared a few notes to help you decide!

 

The nature of this divine cardstock is it’s beautiful and subtle texture (much like a linen tablecloth). This will add a timeless feel to your wedding stationery, instantly adding a delicate and textural experience to your invitee!

The Linen cardstock is very versatile as it can really change the tone of your invitations. Linen can be chosen to suit a rustic or botanical design so that it feels more organic & earthy, or if you’re choosing a more glamorous or typographic invitation the Linen will help it to appear very delicate and sophisticated.

This card has a matte finish, which can be written on with pen (it will be a touch bumpy) and the texture is evident on both sides. This card is 280gsm (similar thickness to a high-quality business card).

Environmental Credentials:

Linen is FSC certified, sourcing pulp from managed plantations and responsible forests. The fibre used to produce it is elemental chlorine free. (Source: K.W. Doggett Fine Paper)

 

 

If you really want to wow your guests, then making the choice to print your wedding stationery on the Shimmer Cardstock will blow them away! Shimmer maintains a unique industrial look, while feeling very high-end and glam!

This metallic cardstock is a very unique cardstock which has a subtle silver pearlescent texture which shines through the paler colours of your card. Please note that due to the absorbant properties of the Shimmer cardstock, areas of bold black and dark tones will print with a slightly matte finish, as this is an uncoated cardstock (i.e. not glossy).

You can write on this card, but we do recommend using a ballpoint pen and letting it dry before you touch it. The Shimmer texture is evident on both sides. This card is 300gsm (similar thickness to a high-quality business card).

Environmental Credentials:

Shimmer is made with FSC certified pulp and manufactured in an environment that is ISO 14001 EMS accredited. Curious Metallics Digital (Shimmer) is also made with elemental chlorine free pulps, which help to reduce harmful by-products. (Source: K.W. Doggett Fine Paper)

 

 

Ordering a Sample

If you would like to see and feel these cardstocks for yourself, you are very welcome to order a sample pack online, and we will send you samples in all our cardstocks including Shimmer and Linen. Samples can be ordered by clicking the “Order A Sample” button on each product page.

 

A Note about Digital Printing

Our designers treat every order with immense care and respect, but if you choose to print a photo on your product we will often lighten an image ever so slightly in the mid-tones to reduce the appearance of graininess. With the rise of smart-phones, sadly the quality of these photos are often still sub-standard to that of a real camera – usually being grainy if taken in low-light; and filters can give unexpected printing results. When you view a card from 30cm away any affect of grain will usually become invisible to the eye (this is a digital printing standard).
