Invitation 101: Planning for Postage

Postage is an important element to consider when planning your wedding or event budget, and once again the United States Postal service is raising their rates on first class postage. Effective May 11, 2009 a first class stamp will cost you 44¢. Whether you plan on mailing out your invites yourself or leaving that up to your invitationer, it is important to note in your budget, after all, every penny counts these days. Don’t forget that the “Forever” stamps are just that, their value remains forever the same even when the price of postage goes up.

An important tip that you may not know about is to take your invitations to the Post Office and ask them to manually stamp them. Otherwise they will be run through the mail with every other piece of mail. Why does it matter? Invitations tend not to be completely flat – it may have multiple folds, inserts, or embellishments that can rip when run through the postage machine. So be sure to hand carry them to your post office to make this extra special request. Happy mailing!

Répondez, s’il vous plait

rsvp

Répondez, s’il vous plait, or Please Respond, is an essential element of the invitation ensemble. It is important to include an rsvp card, most commonly referred to as a response card, with invitations for your event in order to keep track of the number of guests that will be attending and to help you plan your budget. However, sometimes guests are not all too diligent on returning the response card. Therefore, the return process must be as simple as possible. The response card should be included with the invitation as a separate insert for guests to mail back to you. Make sure the wording and instructions are straight forward and clear. It is an absolute must to include a respond by date, as well as include a return envelope that already includes postage on it and a return address label. 

House of Papier attends New York Fashion Week…Part VII

Inspiration No° 6: Fabulous Fashion

While I’ve been inspired by individual elements of New York Fashion Week. The truth of the matter is that just being under the tents in Bryant Park was in and of itself an inspiring experience. I’m often asked why House of Papier is so closely linked to fashion. After all what do invitations and fashion have to do with one another? Right? The answer is, nothing. For me it’s about style. As far as I’m concerned style exceeds the boundaries of fashion and extends to creativity, patterns, colors, ideas, design, and texture. I always go back to my favorite quote by Coco Chanel:
