What gift should we get the bride and groom? CASH!

Wedding Guests Dos and Don’ts

Having aggregately attended over 80 weddings in the last 10 years, you can say that jigg and I know a thing or two about being good wedding guests. Below is our list…let us know if we missed anything! Dress Code (Ladies Only) Do NOT wear white or off-white . This includes ivory, cream, ecru or anything […]

Wedding Drinking Game

jigg and I created this game because we noticed many similarities across the maid of honor and best man speeches that we have heard at weddings. (Makes you wonder how many people use a speech template they found online!) It’s also a great ice breaker at your table if you get everyone to play.  Click here […]

Wedding Drinking Game

After averaging 10 weddings per year for the last seven years, jigg has become somewhat of a wedding expert.  One thing he loves to do is judge the maid of honor and best man speeches – everything from the type of stories shared to how long they speak for (he actually takes out his phone […]

Cash is king!

Cash is 100% of its Value

Thanks to Addy for letting me know that physical gifts are worth about 70% of its monetary value to the recipients. (Read: Wedding Gifts: Cash is King.) I wonder how my card recipient will feel about their other non-cash presents after reading this card.

I Want You to Attend Our Wedding Invitation and RSVP

“I Want You” Wedding Invitation

Using the Uncle Sam recruiting poster as inspiration, I helped Lawrence and Suet create a playful invitation where they let their family and friends know that they are wanted at the wedding. I love working on these non-traditional designs — it’s cool when couples set themselves apart.

Takeaway from my wedding photography experience

We were looking for something “photojournalistic”. jigg and I told our photographer that we wanted our wedding photo album to have a “photojournalistic feel” to it – pictures that are unsuspecting and spontaneous, and shots that capture events in mid-action because we felt that those were the type of pictures that told the best stories. […]

He actually reminds of this regularly

What I learned from one year of marriage

jigg and I just celebrated our one year anniversary this past weekend.  To commemorate this, I drew him a comic! We didn’t really do anything big because we’re throwing ourselves an awesome BBQ this coming Saturday.
