With the amazing spring weather we have been having, we find our green thumbs are coming out in full force.  It’s hard not to start planting every seed packet, bulb, and flower seedling in site.  If you are like us and not only love garden-fresh blooms but also love caring for a garden (or know someone who does) , you may want to consider growing your own flowers for bouquets and/or table arrangements.

What information to put on your wedding invitations can be pretty straightforward;  guests basically need to know the when, where, why and who. However, what if you are having an outdoor wedding and want to make sure guests dress appropriately or you want to make sure your guests aren’t surprised by a cash bar? Can you really have too much information on your wedding invitations?

We asked 100 wedding goers and 70% of them said any extra details should definitely be on the invitation while 30% said that a lot of detail is not needed and takes away from the invitation.
