Post Wedding Checklist

This helpful post wedding checklist comes to us from Larry Zimont of Ethan Lord Jewelers, based in Chicago, IL! Here’s Larry to tell us more:

Once a couple’s perfect wedding night is over, it is easy to think that all of the planning is over, and it is time to relax. What some people forget is that there are still tasks that need to be done after your wedding that can be just as important. Whether you want to keep some wedding night memorabilia or make sure to send out those thank you cards, here is a checklist to help you remember what still needs to be done after your big day.

Larry Zimont joined Ethan Lord Jewelers in 2008 and is focused on helping customers search for and find unique, one-of-a-kind engagement rings. To learn more about Ethan Lord Jewelers, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile.

Today’s wedding vendor interview is with designer Janae Evers of Totally Promotional, based in Coldwater, Ohio!

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

My name is Janae Evers and I am a digital designer at Totally Promotional. Totally Promotional specializes in a wide variety of promotional products and wedding favors. We offer traditional and trendy items to fit every couple’s personality! Our fabulous selection of favors includes customized wedding cups, koozies, lip balm, sunglasses and pens. We even have special koozies just for the happy couple and their wedding party! To complete the list, we have premium wedding napkins, coasters, shot glasses and banners. Customizing our wedding favors is probably one of the easiest tasks a bride and groom will face! Depending on the product, they can use our creative artwork templates or upload a design of their own to get the exact design they want.  Totally Promotional is located in Coldwater, Ohio, a small village surrounded by cornfields and dairy farms. Our great location ensures quick shipping to homes and businesses across the U.S. Despite our distance from major metropolitan areas, we continue to be a leader in the promotional products industry. Much of our success comes from our 21 years of experience as an e-commerce business. Last year alone, we helped over 50,000 brides and grooms find the perfect wedding favors to compliment their themes without busting their budget! We enjoy the feedback we continue to receive from couples who are ecstatic about their high-quality, low-cost wedding favors.

There are aspects of every wedding film that stand out as our favourite moments. In this case, we loved capturing the fun of Kristen and Kris’s wedding.

While it’s certainly not uncommon to see a couple’s four-legged friend at their wedding (after all, they’re members of the family too, right?) you may be surprised to find that the bridesmaids’ bouquets have been swapped out for eight adorable puppies. Well, this Charlotte bridal party did exactly that and the Internet is going crazy over it. Cuteness overload! Not only did it make for some seriously sweet wedding photos, but it’s helping spread awareness to a cause close to bride’s heart – pet adoption. We’re loving it!
