Curvy Couture Event ~ January 19th – 21st

7_W412F curvy

We believe beauty comes from within. The construction of a gown makes all the difference in how a bride looks and feels. The expressive details of a gown will enhance the bride and define her confidence. Crystal beading, floral lace appliqués and dramatic illusion backs combined with luscious fabrics are here. Beaded lace, English net and rich satin compose gowns that evoke glamor and romance. Brides deserve to be at their most beautiful and feel truly comfortable, especially our curvy brides in sizes 18-32.

Do you need Save the Date Cards?

Are you wondering if you really need to send Save the Date cards for your upcoming wedding?

rustic wood background

Traditionally, engaged couples formally announced their upcoming nuptials in the newspaper or in their local church bulletin. Today, Save the Date cards have often replaced the official printed engagement announcement and are usually sent to your guests as a courtesy. However, if your wedding is taking place during a typically busy time of year (holidays, graduation, etc.), or if many of your guests will need to make prior travel arrangements to attend, then a Save the Date card is most highly recommended.

STD save_the_date_tips_blog

Here are some helpful guidelines:

1. Mail your Save the Date cards 7 to 11 months prior to your wedding.  Guests like to plan ahead and arrange their schedule to attend. Again, this is very important if you anticipate any out-of-town guests or are having a destination wedding.

2. Only send the cards to guests on your confirmed “A” list! Remember that “B” list guests are excluded from Save the Date card mailings.

3. The information on your Save the Date cards should also include: wedding website  information, hotel recommendations, and the city the ceremony will take place.

At Kathryn’s Bridal, we have a wonderful collection of Save the Dates and can even customize your cards to complement the tone or color of your wedding invitation. The options for creativity are endless! Save time and money by working with a local professional stationer who guarantees your satisfaction rather than gambling with buying online!
