WHAT TO INCLUDE ON YOUR INFORMATION CARD

Including an information or details card as part of your wedding stationery, is a great way to provide your guests with important information that won't be on the invitation. There are many, many details that can be included on an information card to help your wedding/event run more smoothly and ensure your guests have all the information they will need to attend your wedding without confusion. These details can include...

ONE FINE DAY RECAP

To think this time last week we were bumping in for One Fine Day, full of nervous excitement and completely unaware of what the weekend would hold for us, is crazy. After such a massive build up, it came and went in a total blur. But seriously, we had so much fun, I was actually sad to see it come to an end. And I am still on such a high! I've had nothing but a huge smile on my face this week as we've recovered, reflected, debriefed and sifted through the many emails in our inbox...

5 THINGS EVERY SAVE THE DATE SHOULD INCLUDE

Save the dates are are becoming increasingly popular, but sending them out is still a relatively new practice, thus the guidelines around them can be a little unclear. Generally sent 6-12 months before your wedding, save the dates let your guests know the date your event well in advance so they can mark it on their calendars, arrange time off and get a head start on booking flights and accommodation...

OUR NEW WEBSITE IS LIVE!

September 2015. That's when I took the old Love Carli website down and put up a holding page. Those of you that have been following for a while will be all too familiar with the 30% complete status bar. The one that never moved. I had grand plans to teach myself Wordpress and build a new website myself, but...

WEDDING STATIONERY TIMELINE

More and more I am finding that couples are confused or not sure of the appropriate timeline for their wedding stationery. Not only for when their save the dates, invitations and thank you cards should be sent out but how much time is needed to create their stationery once they have placed an order...

NEW DIGS

Happy Monday! We're all moved into our new studio at The Nook Gallery & Studios in Mornington. We're not sure the same pyjama dress code that we sometimes indulged at home applies, but it sure is going to be nice not being home alone all day...

SARAH & DAN

Earlier in the year, I created wedding stationery for a lovely couple based on the Mornington Peninsula, and it's very apt that we write this post as we are in packing mode for our move to Mount Martha (43 days)! Sarah and Dan celebrated their wedding at Paringa Estate is Red Hill at the end of April and were kind enough to share these images with us...

HOW TO PROOFREAD YOUR WEDDING STATIONERY

Today I want to chat with you about the importance of proofreading your wedding stationery before you approve it for print. Strangely enough, this pretty vital part of the process is too often glossed over resulting in typos or errors that are not only traumatic for both designer and bride but costly too...

A WOODLAND FAIRY CHRISTMAS FOR CONFETTI FAIR MAGAZINE

Towards the end of last year I had the fantastic opportunity to collaborate with some other talented ladies in the wedding industry on a photo shoot for Confetti Fair Magazine and it has just been published in their current issue! Working to a Woodland Fairy Christmas theme, a festive soirée was created and Love Carli was asked to contribute the stationery and chalkboards for the event.

BEST. DAY. EVER.

Honestly and without cliché, our wedding day was the happiest and most perfect day. We poured so much of our hearts and souls into creating our day and watching it all come together so seamlessly on the day was so enjoyable.

LOVE CARLI TURNS ONE

I DO, THANK YOU - TIPS FOR WRITING YOUR THANK YOU CARDS

There was months of endless planning, a whirlwind day of perfect celebration and a romantic honeymoon, but when it’s all over there is still one important task on your to-do list. The Thank You card is one of the most forgotten parts of a wedding, but it is one of the more important details because it lets your guests know how appreciative you are for their attendance and generosity...

OUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOSHOOT

Yesterday I received our engagement photos back from our wedding photographer and I am just so happy with them I wanted to share some of my favourites. At the same time, I thought I would share a few reasons why an engagement photo shoot is an excellent idea, just in case you aren’t sure you see the value in it...

A CUT ABOVE - LASER CUT WEDDING STATIONERY

Following my post a few weeks back showcasing our laser cut Save the Dates, I received many curious questions about the process I went through to create them. So I thought I would talk a little about laser cutting paper, the process and the price you might expect to pay for falling in love with the technique...
