    ELIZABETH & BRIAN – TESTIMONIAL

    “We are getting married in Italy in September and wanted wedding invites to depict our wedding abroad. We used Farrell & Chase for our wedding invites and RSVP cards. Pamela was great to work with and no request was too big for her. The quality and style of the invites were excellent and our guests loved them. Thank you Pamela.”

      CUSTOM STATIONERY – ELIZABETH & BRIAN

      I was delighted to design and print Elizabeth and Brian’s destination wedding stationery. Elizabeth and Brian are getting married next September in the beautiful town of Santa Maria di Castellabate in Italy. They wanted to supply their guests with information about the destination, travel and accommodation details and their wedding weekend itinerary…

      realwedding_elizbrian01On meeting with them and discussing different options we decide to create a wedding booklet together with a detailed RSVP card. They loved our Chantilly Wedding Suite which we customised using antique gold and sapphire blue ink colours to reflect the sandy beaches and deep blue sea of the south of Italy. We also included two lovebirds throughout the suite, a charming and whimsical detail.

      realwedding_elizbrian02The front cover of the booklet is the formal wedding invitation which is letterpress printed on luxurious 100% cotton paper and the inner pages are laser printed on matching laid paper. We decided to stitch bind the booklets with cotton thread to continue the use of quality materials throughout.

      The RSVP card allows guests to reply to a pre wedding get together, the wedding and a beach bbq the day after the wedding. The envelopes are a beautiful antique gold colour complimenting the invitations. The RSVP envelopes are letterpress printed with the return address and the invitation envelopes are digitally printed with guests names and addresses.

      Wedding booklets were a great solution for Elizabeth and Brian’s destination wedding. Their guests can easily access all the information they need and also bring the booklets with them for reference when they are enjoying their trip to Italy.

Pamela was great to work with and no request was too big for her. The quality and style of the invites were excellent and our guests loved them. Thank you Pamela.” Elizabeth & Brian

      We can customise any of our designs for destination weddings, creating wedding invitation booklets or separate wedding information booklets.

            WE WON!!!

            I attended the WeddingsOnline.ie Awards, Ireland’s Top 100 Wedding Suppliers, last night and I am thrilled to tell you that Farrell & Chase won the award for Best Wedding Supplier Website!

            wol_award

            This award really means allot to me as I designed the website myself, it has been a long process and of course the website is always evolving. I have to say a big thank you to Loughlin and Ian from Choice Cuts for all their advice and help on usability and technical matters.

            We arrived at the Crowne Plaza Santry yesterday evening and enjoyed canapes and Champagne at the bar with a string quartet playing in the background. It was great to meet so many of the WOL suppliers and put faces to names. We were then called into the really beautiful banqueting room for dinner. We enjoyed a three course meal followed by a very inspiring speech from Bill Cullen and then, the awards began.

            We were seated at a table with Jill FitzGerald, from Cake Toppers Ireland, and the  Trim Castle Hotel. Congratulations to Trim Castle Hotel who were shortlisted for Wedding Venue of the Year – Hotel (Leinster). And a big congratulations to Cake Toppers Ireland who won Best Wedding Industry Newcomer. An amazing award to win.

            I was congratulating Jill for her award when I was announced as the winner (Best Wedding Supplier Website), I really couldn’t believe it. My heart was pounding and I just kept thinking, please don’t trip (high shoes) while I was walking up to accept the award. Needless to say we finished up the night with a few celebratory drinks!

            Thank you to everyone at Weddings Online for a great night and of course a big thank you to all our past and present Bride and Grooms.

            I will get some pics up as soon as I get them.

                  ALTERNATIVE GUEST BOOK IDEAS

                  A wedding guest book doesn’t have to be in the form of a book. Here are some fun alternative ideas…

                  alternativeguestbook

                  Supply postcards with the bride and groom’s address printed on the back to fill with good wishes during the reception and drop in a mailbox displayed in the lobby. The cards are to be mailed the next day by a friend of the couple so that the newlyweds will return from their honeymoon to a brimming mailbox. Use cards from a vintage address file for gusts to express their well wishes. Hire a photo booth and add a blackboard for guests to chalk up their messages and capture them in photos. Follow Japanese custom by asking guests to tie their sentiments to tree branches with ribbons. Set out an old-fashioned typewriter with sheets of paper for guests to write good wishes to the bride and groom as the feeling strikes.
