To connect or disconnect your wedding – that is the question!

With social media is taking over the world, we want to capture picjumbo.com_HNCK8349every moment it and share it with our circle of friends, family or even fans – especially the special moments of life. Social media is creeping levels of our lives so of course we see it making its way into weddings with phones and hashtags everywhere!

Several couples are having none of it and choosing to ask guest to disconnect and just enjoy the moment. And while I 100% agree your guests should be present, I don’t think it is necessary to collect everyone’s phones at the door.

We had a lot of people using our hashtag the day of our wedding but it was something quick – we created an atmosphere where people truly wanted to party and celebrate with us too – not just stay on their phones.

Want proof? The reception ended at 4:00 am! *mic drop*

So hashtag away – because we know you want to!

Here are reasons we loved our hashtag and recommend a connected wedding.

  1. We instantly saw our wedding! Hashtags are a wonderful thing! They are not only gaining popularity but are a playfully add to your day of stationery and let you reflect on your wedding day instantly.  Everything seemed to be happening so fast it reassured us that it wasn’t just a dream.
  2. Raw vs Professional. A big concern always here is “Well we hired a photographer or videographer.” Yes and I will say no one will be able to capture what professional can. Our wedding photos are pieces of art and our video looks like a high end Hollywood movie but your friends and family will be able to capture something different. It’s a bit more raw to say the least. For example – at the end of the night we had a dance off, and let’s just say my inner Beyonce came out in full Sasha Fierce style – this was at the end of the night though when it was just friends and family – no professionals so I loved watching it go down on Instagram and Snapchat (mainly because I wanted to see myself trump my new hubby in a dance off – who doesn’t)!
  3. You get to see your event in the eyes of your guests! And what’s more special than that?

 

PS: Don’t forget to hashtag #VibranceWedding – because you know you’re a #VibranceBride / #VibranceGroom 😉

2015

Happy Holidays all!

This year has been incredible. I can’t even begin to describe it. I also feel like I’d ramble to long, so I will try to keep it short and sweet!

2015 has been a HUGE year for us at Vibrance Designs. We opened the year with a fresh look, complete makeover and new perspective on our business. Taking you behind the scenes for the first time with this blog, not to forget bringing stationery advice, tips and tricks – and trust me that won’t stop. The readership on this blog always blows my mind (super thankful for all of you).  While keeping the personal hand-drawn touch to our work we also managed faster turnarounds and brought several new services like laser cut invitations, personal address stamps, wax seals, full colour canvas bags and more! Not to forget the expansion of our Etsy shop. I can’t say this was all easy, 2015 was the year of the hustle, I don’t think our team has ever worked this hard and trust me when I say it’s only getting better! XmasCards

As you know 2015 is a huge year for me personally too. I married the man of my dreams. I knew this new chapter in my life would teach me a lot but I never imagined learning this much. My business expanded and services tweaked the more I became a bride and sat on the other side of this industry. Nothing can help a vendor expand and grow as much as being it’s own client. I still am oozing advice, tips and tricks and trust me there will be more posts on my big day for all of you who have been asking for more. I only think it’s fair!

Lastly I want to thank you. Yes, you! Whether you’re a reader, client, supportive friend, frendor [vendor-friend], family or just someone who loves us – thank you for making 2015 the most amazing year yet. Without your support none of these new services or expansions would come to be.

Without you I wouldn’t be living my dream. Yes it’s a lot of hustle but you make it all worth it.

Thank you and Happy Holidays.

Cheers,

Puja xo

The 3 C’s

There are 3 C’s in stationery design that I often see people mix up.  As consumers you should know what’s out there and what service suits your vision.

So what do the 3 C’s really mean?

  1. Customizable – essentially this means you’re working with a template. You choose a pre-made design and the stationery designer alters the information or sometimes even the fonts/colours to create something that is perfect for you. Many will have the same design as you – it’s like you and your frienJBW2PXDOL6d buying the same jeans but in a different size. (Side note: check out the Etsy shop for our customizable items!)
  2. Custom– this is similar to customizable design but you have a bit more wiggle room. You can choose from templates,
    pre-assembled structures, pre-made artwork and mix them all together to create your perfect piece of stationery. This is often confused with couture because you’re able to choose from different areas and create something that is your own. There will still be others out there that will have the same or a similar design as you. It’s like you and your friend buying the same jeans, but in different colours and perhaps mixing it up with different accessories to get that distinctive look.
  3. Couture –With a couture service you sit down with your stationery designer and create a suite especially for you. You choose everything from the paper, structure and treatment. Many do couture differently but for us this also means a hand-drawn illustration that matches your style. It’s like creating a custom piece of art exclusively for you. The creation process is definitely something that everyone should experience once in their life. It’s like Marc Jacobs creating clothing just for you – with your body shape, trends and personality in mind! You can only imagine how beautiful that collection would look on you! 😉

For many years, Vibrance Designs only offered Couture Invitations and Stationery, it’s only recently that we ventured into the customizable market with our Etsy Shop. We do offer some custom work but that’s on a smaller scale.

If you have more questions on this topic or another – leave us a comment and we’ll be happy to answer all your Stationery 101 questions!
