2008 Favorite Wedding Ideas and Vendors from A to Z, H is for Hanna, Sarah Hanna

H is for Hanna, Sarah Hanna. My utmost favorite calligrapher. Her calligraphy is truly art! Yes, each and every 200 invitations that she calligraphed for my Morales/Katta wedding last month were sheer art. And she also assisted with the table names and place cards. And a good friend of hers, Eliza Pineau handled the graphic design on the guest seating charts. You really have to love a vendor that can roll with the punches. My clients always seem to take it right up to the deadline and yet both Sarah and Eliza manage to pull it off. I really value working with both of them, so much!

Here’s a sample of a table card that Sarah did for the wedding.  I love it!  Thanks to nu visions in photography for the great photos.

And here’s a sample of the elegant place card that she did for each and every guest at the wedding.

2008 Favorite Wedding Ideas & Vendors from A to Z, E is for Eco Friendly Weddings

E is for Eco Friendly Weddings.  With everything going on here on mother earth, the need to be green is greater and greater every day.

This is definitely a hot trend and one that we won’t hopefully see fade anytime soon.  You can make your wedding eco friendly by using some of these suggestions:

  • Invitations – Do your research and send recycled paper invitations or forgo the invitations all together and send an email invite.  The following image courtesy of New and Blue.

  • Give plants as your favors.  You can even incorporate them into your centerpieces, so that nothing goes to waste.  The Wedding Greenhouse offers some adorable plants.

  • Use organic or local grown foods for your reception.  It may cost you more in the short term, but think of what you’ll be doing for the enviroment in the long run.

  • Give your flowers or leftover foods to charity or a donation service.  I discovered once such service when doing research for an article in the last few years.  They are Special E.
