3 Quick Tips: How to Master your RSVPs

Inviting your guests to your wedding is the easy part. Managing your guests is a whole other story! If your planner does this for you suhhhh-weeet! If not here are 3 quick tips to keeping everything in check!

1. Make sure your wording is on point! This is KEY! Be sure that you have a line for Names and their guest. If you have meal options on there be sure to include a line for who gets what meal. Nothing is worse than having to call EVERY.SINGLE. GUEST. to find out what they want to eat. I like to also include a dietary restriction line for people with allergies/intolerances.
2. Number them and create a key. Number those bad boys! There are always at least 3 people who do not bother to put a name or a return address!!! ALWAYS! Save your self the stress of having to figure out who cannot follow directions by creating a code!
3. Get them Digitalized! As soon as you get a fresh batch of responses add them to an online manager. Don’t wait to do it all at once. This will be overwhelming! Adding them to an online manager will help you down the line when you have to give the caterers numbers for attendance and meals and when you create seating charts! It will also help your stationer with the place/escort cards!

A Reflection of 9-11

Bible Quotes Revelation 21:4 by Pretty Peacock PaperieRead more

So as we all know, today is September 11th. A day that is truly somber in the U.S. My heart goes out to all the families who lost loved ones on that day. I know there is no way that I can really relate but I want to offer you my love and support. I also want you to know that God is with you always. He will guide you and take care of you! A scripture that always helps me cope is

REVELATION 21:4, And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and Death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be no more. The former things have passed away.

Today, I started my day with a run. I reflected the entire time on life and how lucky we are to be alive. It is so important to wake up everyday and love your family and friends. Tell them how much you appreciate them and love them. Hug them, spend time with them. And, really do this. Don’t just be in a room with them. Spend time with them! That means being less conscious of all our technology and more conscious of moments together! I know this is hard. Even  I falter on this sometimes. (Especially, because I run a business.) But you have to fight the urge, because essentially our lives are not guaranteed.

We must also live according to God. We should live to please him and in a fashion that would make him proud. That means loving ALL of our brothers and sisters worldwide and offering support to those around us! Nothing is ever gained in hate and we must set the example.

Again, my heart goes out to those family and friends who lost loved ones. My hope is that you can find comfort in God and the outpouring of love!

XOXO,

Brand Spanking NEW LOOK for the Peacock!

Yesterday we revealed our new look on IG (Instagram) If you have not already, go follow us! Many times I reveal things to IG and my list FIRST! So stay in the loop girl!

I am so happy to reveal our brand spanking new look for Pretty Peacock Paperie! There have been so many new changes this past summer. So let me fill you in!
 Pretty Peacock Paperie - Washington D.C. Wedding Invitations  
Pretty Peacock Paperie - Washington D.C. Wedding Invitations W E   M O V E D !
Yes, we moved to Northern Virginia, also known as NOVA. We are now serving the DMV area. This includes Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia!
W H A T   D O E S     T H I S     M E A N     F O R   W I N T E R     P A R K ?

We are STILL operating in Winter Park! Our space 336 Grove Ave. is still in use and will continue to be used for our local clientele! Consults will be on a first come, first served basis and will only occur one week out of the month. If you are a local couple please book us early!
N E W L O O K !

We have new branding! This has been a labor of love for sure. Many people have asked about my new branding. Apparently, people deemed my old look beautiful! This is something I have wanted to do for a while. With our recent move, I figured what the heck, now is as good of a time as any!

This new look is near and dear to my heart because it represents me. I wanted the look to be young, fresh and powerful. Most of all I wanted it to represent my artistic side. I seriously miss being a fine artist. Design is definitely an art form but I only recently began to view it as one. This summer I had the revelation… I A M A N A R T I S T. Although I have taken a different route than I originally expected, I am still an artist! Art has been my love for as long as I can remember and I feel blessed that I am able to earn a living doing what I love: creating art! Because that’s what your invitations and paper goods are little piece of art!
O N L I N E

While we are still taking on custom clients, we are shifting our focus to the online marketplace. Beautifully design invitations and paper goods will be available on Etsy and our site. The reason for this is because one day we plan to move back to Florida and starting from scratch with every move is a Biotch! This last move to the DMV area now marks the third time we have had to start over, from the ground up! If I had to do this for a fourth time, I think I would most certainly die!

I hope this clears up any questions that may be circulating around! Tell us what you think of our new look! I hope that you love it as much as I do!
XOXO,
Natalie Henry-Charles
