January 2014 Bridal Fair

We kicked off the New Year at the Bridal Show at the Patriot helping hands...Catherine and Cindy are lifesavers!  I could not do what I do without their help!!

The response to the last two Bridal Fairs has been amazing!!

The Samples go to Boards!

Once the Bride selects her design...the remaining options are put on display for future brides to see for inspiration!  I never share a chosen design until the invitations have been mailed!!  Once the invitations are mailed the entire suite goes on a board!
Sample Boards are shown below!!
Once a design is chosen...everything coordinates...the Programs, Hotel Bags, Place Cards and the Thank you notes!!

The Added Touches Experience!

When a Bride decides to work with Added Touches...everything is about what she wants...what she had always wanted for her special day! 

Our first meeting is to get to know one another.  A time for the bride to see what I offer and a time for me to discover what she wants for her special day.  Everything I do is custom...there are no catalogs...literally every invitation is designed with ideas the bride shares with me.

Our second meeting is when the Bride see's what I have designed for her based on her vision...I believe everything with planning a wedding should be a celebration!

Below are pictures of second meetings waiting to happen...waiting for the Bride to make her choices!


The Bride's colors are Navy and Yellow...the wedding is at National Harbor...the theme is Alexandria, VA
