Invitations are so often an afterthought in the wedding planning process. And each time, a golden opportunity is overlooked. The invitation sets the tone for your event and build excitement and anticipation. It's also a marker for your guests as to how to dress - is it formal and elegant or is it casual or whimsical.

I had the pleasure of meeting with Heidi Jimenez the other day and reviewing her portfolio of exquisite handmade invitations. Every detail - lace, velvet, satin, all custom, and all pieced together individually with painstaking care.

Every invitation I looked through made me yearn to attend that party - a party for people I never knew and will never know. But I wanted to go to the party/wedding because the invitation was so pretty. It was like opening a gift. And if you think about it, that's what an invitation is - a gift to your guests that says, you are special to us, and we hope you can share this day.
