Freebies at the Wedding Planner and Guide Show!

Posted on

Next weekend, January 15th-16th, Invites by Jen will be one of the many wonderful vendors at the Wedding Planner and Guide Show in Madison, WI.  The show will be held at the Alliant Energy Center (for more information please visit the Wedding Planner and Guide website here).

If you are planning a wedding, I highly recommend this show.  Not only because I am a vendor, but because I utilized this same show myself while planning my own wedding a couple of years ago.  One of the best perks for attending is that many of the vendors offer show specials and discounts (who doesn’t like something for free).  Invites by Jen is no exception!

If you book with me at the show you will receive a 10% discount on your invitation order!  You do not need to know exactly what you are going to order at the time of booking, this is simply to ensure your wedding is available on my calendar!  

The savings do not stop with the 10% discount either…..after we book your order, you will get the chance to choose one of my secret freebie favor boxes!  Inside the box will be a ticket for a special reward that will be reedemable with your invitation order.  Examples include: free guest addressing, an additional 5% discount, free shipping, or a Swarovski crystal upgrade. 

One of the favor boxes will include a special discount — 50% off your entire order (please note this will not be in addition to the 10% discount, but will instead replace it).

Are you reading this and thinking “But I live hundreds of miles away, I cannot possibly take advantage of this discount, bummer”.  Well, don’t worry — I am extending this show special to any and everyone that wants it — even if you cannot attend the show. 

If you cannot make the show, but decide to book your order with me between now and the end of the day on Sunday (January 16th), you will receive the 10% discount AND free guest addressing (this will be your favor box prize).

So don’t wait, book your order today — 2011 dates are booking up fast!  As I only take a certain number of orders for every season, I suggest you contact me right away to ensure your date is still available!!

Happy planning!

Wedding Planner and Guide Summer Show

Wedding Planner and Guide Summer Show

On June 9th, Invites by Jen was an exhibitor at the Wedding Planner and Guide Summer Show in Madison, WI.  My sister-in-law Sam came to help at the booth for the day and evening.

Sam was in charge of making the poms to hang as decorations on the backdrop of the booth.  I got the idea to decorate with the tissue poms from the Martha Stewart wedding magazine — I chose the color scheme from the latest cover!

Setting up the booth didn’t take too long — here are just a few pictures of the setup:

I was also able to participate in a couple different displays around the show itself.  The first one was a vignette decorated with winter themed items for your wedding.  For this vignette I created a completely new design to unveil at the show.  Introducing the Danielle collection!

The collection features a hand stamped and embossed snowflake along with a pretty sparkle from multiple crystals!

The invitation was designed in a square shape with multiple layers — this color scheme included a silver metallic, white, and garnet

The save the date showcases an additional color option for embossing — white (and what a perfect color on top of the silver metallic cardstock!)

The thank you card is a simple flat card with “Thank You” printed on the back.

I was also able to participate in a mock reception table set-up.  The colors used in the table I participated in were orange and yellow with a citrus “twist”.  I designed a fun, summery set of menus, place cards, and table numbers for the display!

Cover It Up (based out of Madison) did an excellent job designing the table!
