We have been waiting for this for a looooooong time. Erica’s super cute, mix and match invite line, Thoughtful Day, is here. OMG we could not be more excited. Her way with illustration and pattern is so lovely.
So the way it works is that you get to pick and choose each piece of your invite suite from the many options in the Melodie Collection.

Thank you note options
And the matching guest tote, which has kind of become a Thoughtful Day signature item.
The Melodie Collection allows couples to mix and match their letterpressed wedding invites, which is awesome because it lets them not only create a unique suite, but also let’s them choose pieces that fit their budget. There are 4 Melodie themes, each of which is a complete invite set on it’s own but also works perfectly with pieces from the other themes. Erica has selected 3 standard color ways (not that they are standard), but custom colors are also available. You can see a different set on Brooklyn Bride too.
Someone needs to order these babies, quick.
How cute is this wedding? Our friend Morgan (who is a designer at Hallmark) and her husband Dan tied the knot in a bright, fun wedding celebration, complete with a marching band!
Morgan designed the invites herself (you know, because of her designerness), and had them letterpressed in Kansas City by Cody Langford of It’s Fancy. She used rounded corner punches and a perforation roller from the scrapbooking store Archiver’s, and had a custom embosser made by Paper Source to tie everything together.
The band was Morgan’s surprise to Dan. She called up his favorite local band, The Marching Cobras, and hired them to come marching down the street as she and Dan walked out of the church. Don’t you love her maids all lined up in hot pink behind the band? And that guy has some serious style.
Thanks for sharing with everyone, Morgan!

Over the weekend we sent Kristina as our 100LC ambassador to a very cool, extremely well planned bridal blogger meet up in Brooklyn. We all wanted to attend but Amanda and Jillian had important commitments in Palm Springs at Jenna’s bachelorette party. Poor girls.
Vané and Anne hosted a really amazing event at the Galapagos Art Space in Dumbo, which involved some seriously needed face time with all of our favorite blogging friends. And we were able to connect with the best vendors in Brooklyn which was also really fun. Oh and then there were the gift bags. Dude, the gift bags were incredible. Probably comparable to the ones you get at the Oscars? Minus the espresso machine, Blackberry and diamonds of course.
Erica from Thoughtful Day designed the identity (how cute are the totes!), Seaport Flowers did the arrangements, (which were beautiful), and Jenny Ebert was on hand to shoot the entire event. It was like being at a mini wedding, which thinking about it, was probably the point.
You can check out the blog, see everyone who attended, and all of the extremely generous sponsors at theblistmeetup.blogspot.com.
We can’t wait until next year!
