It’s a totally obvious statement, but I’ve found myself thinking quite about this simple idea recently.
You don’t know what you don’t know.
There may exist a life-hack for one of the most persistent problems you don’t even realize you have. Perhaps someone published the perfect-for-you cookbook, filled to the brim with all your favorite kinds of from-scratch meals but you’ve never run across it. Maybe there’s a keyboard shortcut for the thing you mindlessly do 6235 times a day and you’ve never thought to search for it.
There’s no doubt there are countless tips and tricks of which you’re simply unaware. Imagine if you had someone older, wiser, and more experienced closely watching you navigate daily life, stopping you at every teachable moment. Consider the magnitude of AHA! moments you’d experience.
Well, dear. I’m no fairy godmother, but I have walked dozens of couples through the wedding planning process over the last eight years. I know the pain points, the potential delays, the effect of decision fatigue, having sorted through answers (or options) to questions you may not even anticipate having. My wedding wasn’t my first rodeo. When I planned it, I’d already been through the paper-planning process with almost 50 couples.
That’s why I’ve compiled an ebook with all of my best advice for how to plan the paper portion of your wedding so that you can hand off the important details to the experts and rest easy.
Your wedding is a big deal. Not just because you’re throwing the most epic party of your life or because you’ll be wearing the fanciest most expensive dress you’ve ever bought. It’s more than that. Marriage is a big deal. A lifelong, soul-shifting, arduous, stretching, growing, glorious thing. And your wedding will kick it off publicly.
You should be all there to enjoy it. And you should be able to have something beautiful to hold to remember the details and how you felt at the beginning.
That’s where I come in! Four Hats Press exists to keep time, memorializing your big moments by getting them down on paper so you can look back on them for years to come.
Don’t get bogged down by the details of what you don’t know about planning for your wedding paper. You may not have done this before, but take heart! I have, and I’m happily here for you every step of the way.
Today, I’m releasing my all-in-one wedding paper-planning resource. Snag a copy for yourself or a friend. I’ll walk you through the following, step by step:
Thinking through what paper items you’ll need for your wedding, from start to finish:
How to best estimate how many you’ll need of each piece
When to start designing/ordering your paper items and when to mail them
How to word your invitations
How to address your invitations
Which postage option to choose
I’ve seriously compiled everything I know in this helpful little resource—everything I wish I’d known (and known how to communicate to clients) before I designed my very first wedding invitation back in 2009. I hope that it proves immeasurably helpful for you!
