Wedding Festivals Greenville, South Carolina booth pictures

Hello everyone! I had such a great time at the Wedding Festival in Greenville, SC on February 4th. It was a pleasure to talk with newly engaged couples, and to meet other wedding vendors such as Getz Creative Photography, Live Oak Farms, Anna Jewel Floral Design, and Kathy and Company Cakes.  Here are a few pictures of my booth:

Creative Escort Cards

I had a bride recently ask me to create a scrabble save the date card…. which got me thinking that a scrabble escort card would be a really great idea.  I also love this idea for a destination wedding:  escort tags attached to a compass! These are designed by Allyson Rosen.  See more creative escort card ideas for your wedding at The Offbeat Bride.

Invitation Font: LiebeDoni

Here is another great font that could be used for wedding invitations or other stationary items.  Www.myfonts.com described this font as: “A contemporary nod to Italian typographic heritage, LiebeDoni’s warm and friendly style is perfect for—literally—bold headlines and impressive invitations.”  Designed by Ulrike Wilhelm in 2011, this font is beautiful, bold, and elegant all in one.

My mission

I have been thinking about why I have started this business, what the style of Sofia Invitations and Prints is, and who is my audience.  For my own wedding, I wanted my invitations to be unique, reflect the “mood” of our wedding (a tropical and intimate wedding in Costa Rica), and reflect “us” as a couple.  Seeing that my husband and I are artists, it was easiest for us to create our own invitations to our liking.  I realize that not all couples have the time, energy, and skills to create their own wedding invitations.  Therefore, I strive to make a line of invitations (and custom invitations) for all couples that have a personal vision, a unique style, and feel that most of the invitations they have viewed online or in stores are “just not right for us!”

Meg Keen of A Practical Wedding sums this up well by saying:

  • Weddings can be laid back, and fun. No really.
  • Your wedding should be about celebration and joy, not about a bunch of made up “shoulds.
