New YouTube Channel!

So Jeff and I are Doing a thing! A really scary thing! We are starting a YouTube channel called, the Great Charles Adventure! I know, I know, everyone is on YouTube or blogging, or vlogging. However, we really have a vision for our family. Jeffrey and I have so many dreams and goals. We want to document our process so we can look back and see how we have grown. As a couple, we got together when we were very young, 18 to be exact. Since then we have both grown so much. With the recent birth of our first child and a second on the way, our lives have been a whirlwind. I feel like we can’t remember most of what has been happening in the last year! This year we also celebrate our 30 th birthdays and the arrival of our second baby, so we really want to just get that all down on video. I really hope that you will join us on our adventure!

We want to hear from you! What are you looking for? What type of content do you want to see? We are thinking: family life/raising Two under Two, work life (running my business from home and trying to make it to the big leagues), and our family adventures (going around Orlando and our family trips) ! If you want to see something different let us know, in the comments below, or on the video!

Be sure to like the video and SUBSCRIBE to our channel! (Pretty Please!)

Orlando Wedding Studio

The goal of Orlando Wedding Studio has always been to unite quality vendors with their clients. (brides, grooms, hosts) We started renting the conference room to our vendors and brides to hold their meetings. So far, it has been a huge hit! We wanted to open up the space for their clients to hold intimate gatherings, but we knew that that we needed to do a bit of work!

I am so happy to share our new space with you all! It took a lot of work but I am so happy with the final outcome! (Pro pics coming soon!)

We wanted a lighter and brighter feel to the studio. So, we repainted the walls with a fresh coat of white paint, opened up the main area, added new lighting, and installed new wood floors! We would love to show you around! Please contact us for an appointment or to book, info@prettypeacockpaperie.com or call/text 813-446-7910.

What is an Outer Envelope and Do I Need One?

The outer envelope is just what the name suggests, an envelope that goes on the outside of an invitation. So, the invitation has two total invitations. An outer envelope can be used in modern stationery, but is often left out. Traditionally, the outer envelope was used before we had a true mailing system. Families would send invitations to their guests via horseback. Needless to say these invitations would travel through all of the elements, weather and nature itself to get to the guests. Outer envelopes would be used to protect the invitation and the envelope inside. When the person delivering the invitation arrived at the residence, he immediately removed the often stained and unsightly outer envelope and presented the guest with a pristine inner envelope and invitation!

So, in today’s world it is not really necessary. If you are traditional and really want one then definitely add them to your order. However, with the rise of colored and specialty envelopes, the outer/inner envelope has been replaced by just a mailing envelope.

If you are opting for an outer/inner envelope, be sure that you are addressing them correctly. The outer envelope would be completely addressed and the inner envelope would have the names of the guests invited. This is often an added cost with stationers so be weary when adding this to your order! AS with everything be sure to get everything your package includes in writing in the contract.

I hope this helps to clear up any questions about Outer Envelopes! If you have further questions you can always contact us at info@prettypeacockpaperie.com !

FREE Wedding Stationery Checklist

Planning your wedding can be really hard work! But not when you can stay super organized! SO, I have created a little freebie for all of my Pretty Peacocks! I also want my brides to be extremely educated and informed when they march into their stationery meetings. Keep in mind that your budget (usually 4-6% of your total budget) has to include all of these items. Many brides think they have X amount of dollars to spend on their invitations and then realize that they actually have to also include day-of and post-day-of stationery in that total! This can significantly change a budget. SO, take a moment decide what is important, what is not and base your purchases on what you think makes the most sense FOR YOU!

Now, off you go into the beautiful world of paper!
