Here in NC, we’ve had a monumental and very happy update to our marriage laws — it is now legal for EVERYONE to marry in our state. In honor of this long-coming change, Hello Tenfold is offering a 40% off sale on invitations and announcements til 2015 for same-sex couples in NC. Get in touch via the website, or if you’re in Durham, swing by 401 W Geer Street. Love wins!

On my desk this week, watercolor letterpress wedding invitations!
The idea of wedding websites to match Hello Tenfold invitations is one I’ve had for a long time, and this summer I decided it was time to make it a reality. The problem is there just aren’t that many well-designed, responsive wedding website options out there, and even fewer companies that offer websites to match invitations. I kept hearing from my brides that they were having a hard time keeping their look consistent throughout their paper goods and website.
Keeping the cost as low as possible is important to me, and so I decided to offer four different plan options so folks can have the features they need but leave out the ones they don’t. All of the plans include the ability to customize your domain name, edit the website yourself as needed, collect guest RSVPs, share wedding and weekend event details, info about your wedding party, photo galleries, and registry info. You can even collect financial gifts directly through the website! It goes without saying, but the websites are responsive work perfectly and look great on phones and tablets, too.
Just like Hello Tenfold’s invitations, the customization options with these are endless. You can choose one of hundreds of patterns for your site background, or keep things simple with a solid color or texture. Colors are easily updated to your color scheme (change it as often as you like!), and we can find web fonts that will be a good match for your invitations (whether or not you worked with us on those!).
This week we launched our first wedding website client’s site. Lindsay and Brent chose the Gazette wedding invitations, and so we customized the Gatsby website to match their paper goods. Although the site looks completely different from Gatsby, the edits we made to the site were just background pattern and fonts, and so Lindsay and Brent now have a website that matches their invitations without any additional custom site cost.
There’s more info on Hello Tenfold wedding websites online (here or here) or in the shop!

I was honored to be asked to create the ketubah for Jill and Ryan’s wedding. We based the design off our Flora suite, which Jill and Ryan used for their wedding invitations.
This is now in the Etsy shop, too!
We just added a bunch of new booklet wedding programs to the shop! These are mix-and-match (if you like) and can be made in any color scheme. A few favorites here, but the full collection can be seen in the shop. (Those marbled wedding programs are made from my diy marbling day!)
