Rebecca F.- Custom Card Box

Tis the time for production on beach themed card boxes and all other elements. Sure here up North it's still way too cold for an outside wedding, but that doesn't mean people aren't in that mindset! This bride is down in North Carolina and anxiously awaiting her wedding day. They love the beach but didn't want the popular pinks and blues that seem to accompany many beach weddings. So aiming for something different.... navy, tangerine with aqua accents. The color scheme is gorgeous (the aqua wasn't used for the card box). Aside from the colors, starfish and anchors set the tone and we are glad to make a box that perfectly matches her wedding. Thanks Becky, you have been great to work with!

Our First Sweden Bound Card Box

We do international orders all the time but we have never shipped to Sweden until now. In celebration of it's long departure, we wanted to post it on our blog :) The couple is having a Valentine's Day wedding, as so many others are, and they wanted red, gold, & ivory with roses, bows and hearts. Check, check and check... it's got it all! Here's to it's safe journey!

Save-The-Date Winner

On Friday we had a raffle for free Save-The-Dates. The person who won didn't actually need them so we let her give the winnings to another bride. So this STD was created just for her and she loved it. She didn't want to change a thing! She was super sweet and great to work with. Now this has become one of our pre-set designed Save The Dates. Love it? You can have it too in your colors. Contact us for details!

Congrats to all 25 Winners!

Today we decided to do a random drawing, 25 winners, all to receive a purse of their choice. Although we do not advertise it on our website, we sell both evening purses and fashion bags. The winners got their choice of what they wanted and it was close to a 50/50 split on which category they picked from. Here's a glimpse of our inventory, the evening purses are below as well as only a few of the fashion bags. We have way more but the picture comes up very small on here. If you want to see our bags, just email us for details!

HOLY MOLY!

We are only 2 weeks into the New Year and we are now booked up until events for July 3rd and beyond. It's crazy how popular our card boxes have gotten over the years. Sure every year we receive an overwhelming response, but ever since the New Year, brides have been ordering like crazy! Thank you ladies and we're thrilled to be working with every single one of you!

Stationery orders are still available for any wedding date!

Keeping Busy!

We apologize for the lack of blogging material lately, we have been so busy! Between card boxes, logos, menu cards, etc etc sometimes there's not enough extra time to come on here and chat. But to give you a glimpse of what has been going on here lately. One of our most recent menu card winners received an amazing custom menu card. Jennifer's wedding is fun & funky, utilizing stripes and polka dots, in black, hot pink and some white. Her menu and custom logo came out awesome. She also ordered a card box from us, so we cannot wait to get that done for her too! BACK OF MENU CARD:Also on the logo schedule was another card box customer Jillian. She's getting married in Florida at an AMAZING reception site (it even makes us jealous). The building itself has a very unique and distinct shape so she ideally wanted to incorporate a sketch of the building into the logo. It came out fabulous, definitely not your everyday logo!


Next was another card box customer, getting married in 2010 - gotta love the girls would give themselves enough time for planning! She ordered a logo to basically use as her favor sticker. It's a summer wedding, light pink and light green with orchids. Super Cute! *She actually just won one of our drawings for free Save-The-Dates so we will post those when completed*
Another logo from our "Intertwined" collection, the is the first time a customer requested full names and it came out beautiful. In mocha and pool, super chic!

One more sneak peak! A past customer of ours is now helping her friend plan her wedding, she's the coordinator if you will. So the couple is having a fun and funky, retro rock and roll wedding (which for us translates as EXCITING!). She placed her order for many things: menu cards, placecards, card box, custom logo, table numbers and stickers. We love when we get to design a large package like this. They wanted a logo to have many elements: our intertwined style, a guitar, music notes, all in black and pool with accents of fuchsia. We have done different variations of the logo to help give them exactly what they want, but here's the most recent proof. It's different, it's fun and funky, it's all custom designed for them!

Keep 'em Coming!

Today is an extremely busy logo day. The range of wedding styles and requests are all over the map today and we love it! Here are only a few we did today





























Lindsay W. - Card Box

Lindsay has been a fabulous customer and we wanted to show off her card box. It came out so beautiful, the picture does not capture the true beauty of it. Lindsay's one of our Canadian brides and her wedding she describes as a Magical Winter Wedding. Her colors are a hunter green with ivory, gold accents, calla lillies, hydrangeas, lots of crystals with a touch of filigree design. This card box certainly emcompasses all those elements. Topped off with a rhinestone trimmed card slot, it's stunning! We cannot wait to ship it out!

Katie - Custom Logo

Katie & Kevin decided to get married in September and they placed their logo order over the weekend for one incorporating chocolate, burgundy and earthy green. Below is the logo that she loves. However things change, it happens! They are switching their date to October or November. Planning a wedding is a huge task and can be very complicated so we completely understand. For safety sake, she will probably do without the date on the logo. She's going to get back to us on that :) But she wanted her logo to be different but not too modern or trendy and we're thrilled we made her happy. Thanks Katie!

Happy Birthday Taylor!

Ahhhh to be 16 again! Although we can't rewind the clock, we thoroughly enjoy making card boxes for those celebrating such a milestone. She was so patient with the production of her card box, with illness delaying production. You are a doll and we hope your Sweet 16 is exactly what you hoped for!

Officially deemed our Exclusive "Intertwined" Logo

Now make that 2 official FTMB Exclusive Designs. We thought the first one was popular, the popularity of this style logo took off like a brush fire. We have named it "Intertwined" for obvious reasons. Every day more and more orders come in for this option. Can you blame them? It's fabulous! It's modern, yet elegant, and makes a true statement. What bride doesn't want that?! Here's a couple more we have done (some others shown down below):

Proud Member of the Etsy Wedding Team!

Kendra W. - Custom Logo

We may just have found our next FTMB Exclusive Logo Design. We did a custom logo last week (shown below) which Kendra saw and wanted used as the inspiration for her logo. Her order was a little different as she has a particular theme for her wedding so we wanted to be sure to include that detail. So with a slight modification, she got the logo she wanted with a little more pizazz :)


Kendra requested a minor tweak and this is her chosen final logo:

Lyndsay S. - Custom Logos

Lyndsay placed her order for a custom card box and came back for more :) The other day she purchased some custom logos which were emailed to her today. She loves them and we're thrilled. Here's one of them. Beautiful wedding colors by the way. We can't wait to create her card box!

Calling All Damask Brides!

Damask - what a huge trend in weddings right now! We have done many card box orders requesting this particular pattern and oddly enough all orders have been black, white & hot pink. Weird. Here's one that was just finished today. This particular bride knew actually what she wanted. She told us specifically how to set the box up, we just followed her directions. Can't blame a girl for knowing what she wants!

Logo Madness!

Yesterday was an extremely busy logo day for us. Keep them coming ladies because we love creating them!

One of the orders was for a NY bride and groom, getting married next November with a snowflake theme. She opted for 3 different logos and layouts. With concept in hand, her logo designer got to work. They came out so amazing. Truly unique. We're just waiting to hear back from Kerri! :)

Jennifer K. - Recent Menu Card Winner

UPDATED WITH HER CUSTOM DESIGN 4x9 MENU CARD see below:

The winner of our Menu Card drawing was announced last week and although her menu isn't set yet, she is entitled to a free custom logo as all menu card purchases are. She submitted her form on the overall look she wanted which she aimed for an antique feel. This morning one of our designers did a fabulous job. Here it is, and if she chooses to make any revisions we will of course post the updated logos.

Alrighty so although the bride loved the above font for the "J" she wanted the names to be centered and the fancy letter was getting in the way. So after many font changes, she has decided on the below. Fantastic choice, looks awesome! :)

So the other we announced the winners of our Menu Card and Custom Logo drawing winners, and Lauren gladly accepted her winnings! So after completing her logo form, one of our Designers got to work! Here are the three that were created after letting us know she wanted an elegant but modern look.

First Card Box Finished Today!


Standing at just over 2 FEET TALL, this gorgeous card box was made for one of our NJ brides and we can't wait to ship it out to her! She describes her wedding as Modern Elegance, so her designer had to make sure that it fit right in. It's quite the head turner, a detail that we are sure her guests won't miss! Best wishes Nicole to you and your future hubby!!!
