I’m a little late getting my invitations done, but I’m so far behing to be worried. My goal is to get the first round of invites out by the end of this month and send our B list in the later part of June. So here is the thing, I’ve found an Etsy design that I think is fun, modern, and simple. I think it would be an easy fit in the wedding. I want to keep the “&” going on the information card, ceremony program, menu, seating chart, and thank you cards. Does you guys have any good ideas for titles that includes the ampersand?
Here’s the listing:

Do you have a picture? It sounds a little more fun [in my mind at least] so what about like “The People & The Day” [or something clever] for the programs, “Who & Where” for seating chart, etc. But, I mean like, put the ampersand larger than the other parts. I dunno. I may be no help. I need more to work with! Haha.
Edit: I think you must have added the listing or else I TOTALLY missed that. Let me go check it out.

I would have to think on that one. Maybe just mimic the invites and leave a large ampersand on everything?

@Mrs. Bear Cheese Pie: Tee hee, I added it after the fact. I’m soooo tired I can barely think. lol! I like the Who & Where idea.

@Mrs. Bear Cheese Pie: Do you think it’s too casual for a semiformal modern evening wedding? I’m planning to have the ampersand in silver and the rest of the paper dark teal.

Super cute! I used a funky ampersand on my invites…
I incorporated it into the ceremony program by putting it on the front of the program with our names, and the date below that
We didn’t have a seating chart or menus…. I like the who & where for seating chart…
Maybe “Food & Drink” for menu
On our sweetheart table, we bought an ampersand ansour initials so our centerpiece (just on the sweetheart table) was J&P
We incorporated a diff thing for our Thank You notes – When he proposed, we got a picture holding white boards that said “he asked…” and “…she said yes” 🙂 so, for our table numbers, we got pictures holding those boards (although they were white boards, they were actually colored… Blue and purple, two of our wedding colors) …Then our photographer photoshopped numbers onto the boards… So for thank you notes, we got a picture at the weddi with us each holding a board and one said “thank” and the other said “you”
So…I’m not sure how to incorporate the ampersand for the thank you notes…
What are you planning to put on your information card? Like if it’s just some specific details and a map, it could say “details & destination”

@Jenlon: Yep, I don’t know what to do with the Thank you cards. She may have to keep those simple and play off of the RSVP design which excludes the ampersand. I really like your idea for the info cards which will detail accomodations, reception info, wedding website, and places to see & do.

I had a couple of ideas for Thank you cards:
“Thanks & Gratitude/Appreciation”
For less formal you could even just say “Thank you & Thank you & Thank you again!’
You could thank them for their Support & Generosity (for being there on the day, and for any gifts)
