Another Uncommon Invite post...LOL!

OK earlier this week I talked about Uncommon Invites launching their new site...another post! LOL.

Chérie Ronning and her staff have been giving innovative ideas and concepts to brides for nearly 30 years. She has a new invite available to brides which definitely will set your special event apart. In the last few years we've seen brides shy away from the traditional invites to more contemporary and non traditional means of informing their loved ones of their wedding details. Uncommon invites has a popular new design called the "hip pocket" ® design. This design allows you to place your RSVP card, additional information card and envelope behind the invite. Visit the Uncommon Invite Gallery to see some of the original ideas they have to offer.

Uncommon Invites Launches new website!

In 2006 I had the pleasure of meeting Chérie Roning of Uncommon Invites at the Association of Bridal Consultants Business of Brides Annual Conference. Cherie took care of all of the printed items for our luncheons, dinners and offsite events. Breathtaking does not even begin to describe her work. The detail was just unbelievable. I left the conference with plenty of samples of her work.

On Monday Chérie sent and email out to all of us in the indurstry to announce the launch of her new website! I had just recently visited her website and saw that it was still under construction. I am really excited for them because I know the quality she brings to the table is astounding. Below are some of the pictures I took from Colorado of her work.

In the email Chérie also sent us the first edition of the Uncommon Invites newsletter. The new website features 10 Easy Steps for brides to customize their wedding invitations and stationary. The new process will definitely make it easy for the Bride and her Consultant. Please visit Chérie's new site and blog to see all of the innovative ideas she has for your upcoming event!

Previous wedding photo featured in the Miami Herald!

I was pleasantly surprised when I got a phone call this morning telling me that a client's cake was featured in today's edition of the Miami Herald. I quickly picked up the phone and had a relative pick up a copy of the paper. The Sofitel Hotel is holding a Bridal Expo on Sunday, June 22nd. Ana Paz one of the premier cake bakers in S. Florida will be a part of the showcase. The cake from Jessica & Asia's 1/5/08 wedding was featured in the paper. The The Miami Herald gave a brief synopsis of the weekend of events and showed the beautiful cake from the Hyatt Pier 66 wedding.

Jeff Kolodny was the wonderful photographer that took the picture for the cake.
