A New Partnership!

Last month we partnered with a new custom stationery company called SIMPLY PERSONAL!

Simply Personal is a graphic design and custom invitation studio that supports creative needs nationwide.  They share the same thoughts as we do - its your day, it can't be put in a box, so show your guests who you are!

We're perky for Pantones! We swoon for Swarovski embellishments! We're passionate about paper. Is there any type of tape besides double-sided?! We'd die happy if you’d let us die cut. We freak for new fonts! Ribbons and lace are the reasons we get out of bed!

We are also IN LOVE with our work and it shows. We’re awesomely different than the “big brands & design houses” in some pretty stellar ways:

  • CUSTOM designs on anything (literally any piece or medium)
  • SERVICE to our customers is top-notch
  • CREATIVE concepts and fun personalities to brainstorm any ideas
  • UNIQUE approach to placing and perfecting every order -- from start to finish, we think of the WHOLE order
  • EXPERTS in all things paperie and design
  • DEDICATED to finding the best solution for our customers
  • QUICK like ninja!

Simply Personal is where custom art marries creative design and now with Behind The Scenes Inc your stationery and the remainder of your event can be taken to the next level. Our teams are passionate about details, diligent to please, and ambitious about creating new things. The heart of Simply Personal is to provide personal attention and high quality products to our clients. We are wholeheartedly dedicated to delivering creative solutions and exceptional client service.

We cannot wait to introduce you to their product line and come up with some ideas to make sure that your personality shines on your wedding day!

Call to make an appointment to see some samples or to begin designing your custom stationery line!  Veronica @ 336-525-9331 or email Veronica@behindthescenesinc.com!

Do you want your wedding in print?

Thankfully over the years we've had several weddings in print from local wedding mags, blogs to national magazines and websites.  What we hear quite a bit from our clients is "We want to see our wedding in print".  It is possible - no matter what the budget as long as it is pretty and you don't miss the following images:

  1. Your Stationery Suite - this includes your Save The Dates, invitations, even down to the table numbers and menu cards.
  2. The Cake - Have you seen a real wedding in print and not the cake?
  3. Kids and/or Pets! - Self explanatory.
  4. Scenic Shot with the couple - background of forestry or the beautifully lit venue
  5. Shoes - go for color!
  6. Venue - this doesn't mean the front of the building, it means the set up of tables, table settings, centerpieces, etc.  Be sure to use color table linens - otherwise the white just wash everything out.
  7. Bridesmaids - do something fun!
  8. Aisle Markers - have something going down to mark your entrances.  Don't forget the altar area also.  Even if it is just a small backdrop with some up lights, it makes a huge difference!
  9. Bouquet - DUH!
  10. Boutonniere - Double DUH!
  11. The Recessional - this is you as a married couple leaving the altar.
  12. Escort Cards - make this interesting, also this photo needs to be taken before any of the escort cards are missing!
  13. Centerpieces.....of course!
  14. The Getaway.  These are the sparklers the old timey cars, limo's or just running down the street!

Happy Planning!

New Year....New Service!

3149_RRFF550NGW2zm Over the last 12 going on 13 years we've helped many brides with RSVP services, but usually they are our current clients.  I would like to open this up to clients that want to plan their own wedding because I think it is super important and difficult for brides to handle!  Here is a description of what we are offering:

More details:

  • When using RSVP Services, you can get a 20% discount on invitations purchased from us!  If you decide not to purchase invitations from us the price is still the same Prior to purchasing your invitations, let us know and we'll give you the information that you need for your RSVP cards and envelopes.
  • Your assigned wedding planner will then make sure that we receive the invitations, put the invitations together and get them in the mail.  We do this all within 7 - 10 days or less.  We'll load your guest list in our planning portal and send you the access information.
  • Access your incoming reservations 24/7. Via the planning portal you can see who's RSVP has been received.  You can use the portal to collect gift information and make sure that you send out Thank you cards also! Use our online event manager to keep all of your guests' information in one place. We make updates each time a card is received.
  • About 3 weeks before your wedding date we will call of your weddings guests that haven't sent in an RSVP card to see if they plan on attending so you can give the caterer, rental company and venue an accurate guest count.  We will even call guests who RSVP for more than you invited.

Why hire us?

  • An accurate catering bill—no wasted food!
  • We make reminder calls to those who don't RSVP on time.
  • Do you have a guest who decided to invite some extra friends to your wedding? We will make those uncomfortable calls for you - at no extra charge.
  • No long distance phone charges
  • You can store as little or as much information about each guest as you want.
  • We take the worry our of putting your wedding invitations together and making sure that they get mailed on time!

Inclusions

  • 24-hour access to guest list management and real-time reservation tracking tools.
  • Outbound calling system to remind guests to RSVP, remind them to attend, or just about anything else!
  • A dedicated wedding planner who will build your RSVP guest list.
  • Invitation service, we put them together, number your RSVP cards to match your guest list and take them to the post office for you!
  • And that’s just the beginning!

The cost is $99 for an unlimited number of guests.

Please note this price is only good until January 31st!
