Wedding Superstitions & Traditions

Apr 23, 2008

Did you ever wonder why people ring bells at weddings (historically, it doesn’t mean to kiss!), attached empty cands to the getaway car or threw rice at you?  Wedding traditions are sometimes strange, and superstitions often make you wonder “why?” 

I remember when I got married, I knew of the superstition that whoever fell asleep first on the wedding night would die first.  Hubby and I partied the night away on the cruise ship – and I think we passed out from exhaustion together.

If you would like to know more about a few popular wedding superstitions, swing by our new article: Wedding Traditions and Superstitions

Do you have a tradition or superstition surrounding marriage and weddings?  Please share it with us and our readers!

Going Green With Your Your Wedding Favors

Apr 21, 2008

The 3 R’s of going green – reduce, reuse and recycle.  It’s easy to go green with your wedding favors – with just a few helpful tips you’ll have some awesome green wedding favor ideas.

Reduce – reduce the impact your wedding favors make on the environment.  Whether it is purchasing them “locally” to reduce the carbon impact on the environment or reducing waste by cutting down on packaging, you can make an impact.  Forget the wedding favor boxes, packaging, gift wrap and favor tags.  Purchase favors which can be displayed on each place setting as table decorations – without wrapping them.  Glass coasters, place card holders (not place card frames because them come in boxes), trees and edible items are a good choice.

Reuse – Can your guests reuse the item over and over again?  A rule of thumb here is: if you can see yourself using it in your home, chances are your guests will use it in theirs.  Purchase items which you yourself would use – such as coasters, or kitchen themed items.

Recycle – purchase items which are made from recycled materials or which can be recycled.  Cork coasters, seed packets, woven baskets – can not only be recycled but reused too.

Product Availability & Shipping Upgrades

Apr 18, 2008

I would like to take this opportunity to further explain our “Product Availability” to our customers.

Within each item description, we have an “Availability” section.  This can be found just above the “Add to Cart” button and below the “quantity box”.  We do this to ensure when you are entering the quantity you need – before you hit “Add to Cart” you can see the typical turn-around time for the particular item you are ordering.

Item availability varies from product to product, some products ship within 2-3 days, while others (like personalized wedding favors) can take anywhere from 5 business days (like imprinted ribbon) to up to 3 weeks (like personalized pens).  Here is an example of where you should be looking when purchasing from us (I have circled it in red)

Now regarding shipping.  Selecting a faster shipping method does not speed up the availability time!  Faster shipping simply means you are upgrading the time in transit for your order to make it from point A to point B.  For example, if you order and we ship from NJ to CA, the average in transit time is 5 business days.  This means your order will take 5 days on a UPS truck to make it from NJ to CA.  By selecting 3 Day Select, 2nd Day Air or Next Day Air, it only means the time “in transit” will decrease from 5 business days to either 3, 2 or 1 business day.

We apologize for any confusion this may have caused some of our customers!

Have a great weekend everyone!  And to those brides who are getting married this weekend, Blessings to you!

Sincerely,

Erica Tevis, Owner

As Seen On: HGTV House Hunters – Love Glass Coasters

Apr 3, 2008

I was watching HGTV, House Hunters: Staten Island, NY, which featured a couple who was about to get married and they were searching for their first home together.  They showed off two things for their upcoming wedding: thier invitations and their wedding favors!  I was so surprised to see that our Love Coasters with Free Personalized tags were being shown, that I had to pause and rewind the show to get a better look (thanks to Tivo!)

The bride and groom selected our Love Glass Coaster Wedding Favors with Free Personalized Tags which can be seen here:
