Your wedding invitation font believe it or not, sets the tone for your entire wedding! Be it modern, vintage or romantically elegant, the right font adds that touch of style and infuses your invitations with your personality, reflecting the mood of your entire event. So, yes, its another thing to pay attention to! Choosing the font that best matches your style can be mind-boggling with so many styles on offer. We should know — we carry over 300+ different designs from Bella Figura alone!
If you like the Modern look: Jessica Tierney over at Bella Figura suggests fonts that have sleek, clean lines. They say, “Nothing too fussy or fancy. Simplicity is always key. Scale these chic fonts up in size to make a bold, graphic and attention grabbing statement!” We say, pair them with different graphics to create a bold, one of a kind piece.
If you’re more the Vintage type: Bella Figura suggest fonts that have a ‘wise and worldly appeal’. A little off-beat and full of character to convey a touch of old world elegance. To achieve the perfect vintage vibe, you could consider combining several fonts together to create an eclectic look. What do we think? Well, you can’t go wrong with elegant script fonts paired with flourishes and art deco inspired patterns.
If you’re after something more formal: Evoke black tie elegance with fine hand-calligraphy fonts printed on thick card stock. Embellish with gilt edging in shiny gold or silver, perfect for a sophisticated and refined event.
CNBC put together a list of the most stressful jobs in 2012 and guess what? Being an Event Coordinator came in 7th.. after being a soldier, firefighter, airline pilot and army general. Points were awarded on the amount of travel, competitiveness, physical demands, risk to life or health and working in the public eye. Hmmm. No wonder, I crave doing yoga!
On the flip side, the least stressful job is a Medical Records Technician. I think I’ll stick with what I love doing, stress or no stress!
Here’s the list in its entirety:
1. Enlisted Soldier Stress Score: 84.61
2. Firefighter Stress Score: 60.26
3. Airline Pilot Stress Score: 59.58
4. Military General Stress Score: 55.17
5. Police Officer Stress Score: 53.63
6. Event Coordinator Stress Score: 49.85
7. Public Relations Executive Stress Score: 47.56

We have been flat-out busy working on one gorgeous wedding after another without time to even show them off. This love story of a wedding back in November was so full of heart and soul, it made our hearts sing. Their bridesmaids and groomsmen sung and danced their way into the ballroom and the couple performed the most original first dance ever! Coupled with a sleight of hand magician, warm speeches and personalized M & M’s, it was a love-fest! We are truly blessed to consistently have such incredibly warm and wonderful couples who seek out our services, this happy couple was no exception, they even invited us to stay for the banquet!
Its always astounds me when I see how a little bit of colour and a touch of candlelight can utterly transform a room (we should have taken ‘before’ and ‘after’ photographs)..you would have never guessed that this wedding took place at the Sheraton Hotel Hong Kong.
