I had an absolute blast hand painting the lime green watercolor starfish motif for Ali and Jamie’s wedding reception stationery! Ali’s father shipped the out of town guest tote bag to me to match the color. EACH piece is actually hand painted. Complete awesomeness! I adore fun projects like this. xo ~ Michelle Mospens

One of the MOST popular questions asked here at My Personal Artist Handmade Wedding Invitations, “How do I word we want money for our wedding gift?” or “How do we word we do not want any wedding gifts?” or “Is it proper to add gift registry cards to our wedding invitations suite?”
It is NEVER okay to add a gift registry card to your wedding invitation suite.
According to Peggy Post, wedding invitation etiquette: registry and gift giving information is spread by word of mouth or can be given by inserting into a shower invitation. This information should NEVER grace the wedding invitation. This puts to much emphasis on the gift and not the guest attending which is the most important part of your inviting and hoping the guest can actually attend. Inserting such information can be a turn off for your friends and family. Gifts are the guests choice.
Adding a gift registry card in with or on your bridal shower invitation, that is a different story. The person giving the party is allowed to give their guests gift ideas FOR YOU! That is fantastic. Your guests should remember where you are registered for your wedding day then. Parents, Grandparents, Aunts and bridesmaids can verbally tell the guests gift ideas when asked. If you still feel your guests do not know what to give you on your special day tell a vociferous relative and they will certainly get the word out for you!
Another popular idea is to include your wedding website on your alternative card this way your guests will go to your website and see your personal REGISTRY link there. Many of our couples we have worked with do this. Many wedding websites off ‘free wedding websites’ for you to enjoy!
