Vendor Spotlight and GIVEAWAY: Lovli Day (CLOSED)

Wednesday, March 24, 2010 | by Newlywed | Labels: , , , |

After working in the media and print industry for awhile now, I find that I've had moments where I've totally geeked out on fonts. Like, I've actually had debates with co-workers about which font is the best. No way! Helvetica is so much better than Impact! Really. So I was really intrigued when I came across our next Vendor Spotlight: Lovli Day on Etsy. Jessie from Lovli Day shows us how the fonts, rather than images or design embellishments, can really make your stationery stand out. The mix and matching of typography with cool color schemes take on a fresh approach to the traditional invite or Save the Date. Not only does Jessie design stationery, but you can buy the very popular, but very awesome family tree guestbook from her store.

I received a poster from Jessie and I'm really thrilled about the enduring keepsake the future hubs and I can have. Display it at your reception, and your guests can leave their imprints on the branches, along with their signatures.The poster comes with a small instruction card you can frame and green ink pads.I liked the quality of the print and the paper, and Jessie can customize the tree design with you and your FH's names and your wedding date! The 18" x 24" poster is large enough for 200 thumbprints. Hang it in your future home and it'll be something you can cherish everyday, instead of wondering..."Honey, whatever happened to our guestbook?"


Take it away, Jessie!
The fonts and typography of your Save the Dates and invites usually take center stage. What draws you to more text/font-driven designs?
As a graphic designer, I’ve always had a love for typography, but I feel like good typography is often missed in traditional invitation designs. I'm hoping to help change that.

What sparked your interest in making wedding items?
I had so much fun planning my own wedding, even after it was over I wanted to keep looking through bridal magazines and websites. Eventually, I do hope to expand my business to include something for every aspects of a wedding. Honestly, I’d love to do everything from the invitations to the cake!

What else can we expect to see from you in the future?
Definitely more guestbook alternatives, my wedding tree poster is my most popular item by far. I’ve always felt like the traditional guestbook is a little outdated, and personally I never really understood the concept. To me, its just a book you’ll put away in storage and maybe never look at again. I do still think it is very important to capture a list of everyone who has participated in your very special day, but much like your favorite wedding photo, it should be a piece of art, something you can frame and enjoy on a daily basis.

What was the best detail of your wedding?
That's a tough one, I don't think I can pick just one detail. I was really blessed to marry a wonderful man on a very beautiful day. Everything was just perfect in my eyes.

The Save the Date and/or invitation usually sets the tone for the wedding. What advice can you give to brides as they select their wedding stationery?
Have fun with it! Your wedding invitations should not only set the tone for your upcoming wedding, but they should reflect you as a couple. Traditional invitations are great, but if that’s not who you are then don’t be afraid to do something a little different.

I love the Woodcut Poster Guest Book Alternative. We are already doing something different than the traditional guest book, but this would add a cool extra that could be framed later.
