Today’s helpful guest post, brought to us by Sally of Wedding Card Message, is full of thoughtful ideas for when you just don’t know what to write in a wedding card! Enjoy:
When someone you know, be that a family member, close friend or just an acquaintance is getting married then you’ll probably want to send them a wedding card and maybe some flowers. It’s the perfect way of showing you’re thinking of them and congratulates them on what is a momentous day. But when it comes to writing in the card you may find yourself struggling or lost for words.

Many people worry they will get those wrong. Hopefully this guide will help to allay your fears and enable you to get the perfect wedding card message.
Today’s featured wedding video comes to us from Marry Me Movies, based in Sydney, Australia! Here’s the Marry Me Movies team to tell us more:
One of the advantages of wedding videography is the way it captures movement, sounds and words – all elements that cannot be captured with still photographs. In this case, Vanessa’s father’s speech had everyone chuckling as he told the story of how Vanessa introduced Max as a ‘friend’. Down the track when Max asked permission to marry Vanessa, he said, “Oh, I didn’t know friends do that”. It was a beautiful story that Vanessa and Max can relive over and over again, and perhaps one day share with their children.
Today’s wedding vendor interview is with Magdalena Lipinska, creator of Cordially (New York, NY) a highly customizable wedding website. Enjoy!
Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.
My name is Magdalena and I’m a software developer with a great passion for design. When I was organizing my own wedding I realized that none of the existing wedding website builders offered the personalization level I needed. For my wedding I needed not just one wedding website; I needed roughly 50 different websites, one for every invited couple. Seeing this obvious gap in the market, I created Cordially.co with my mission being to create a wedding website that feels very unique and special for guests – when the invite is received it looks equally as stunning as if a beautifully calligraphed paper invitation had landed through the letterbox. In fact, my idea was that these individual bespoke websites would replace the printed invitations.
Cordially re-imagines the wedding website as we understand it today and turns it into a truly personal wedding invitation hub. Each guest becomes the center of attention with everyone getting a unique link to a website where their name and personalized wording plays a central role in the design. This level of customization together with versatile designs, cutting edge web technology and email analytics in place makes Cordially a useful and beautiful tool for collecting RSVPs and ensuring the guest’s interest is garnered.
This gorgeous rustic, riverfront wedding comes to us from wedding planner, Brittany Collier of Chancey Charm Washington, DC! Here’s Brittany to tell us more:
While I didn’t help with the design of this wedding, I absolutely loved everything about working with Nia and Adam coordinating their wedding day. Nia is extremely detail orientated and she has amazing style! She envisioned an organic, personal and intimate wedding – and I think she achieved that in a gorgeous way that was so home grown and so them. From the cozy lounge seating area with pillows saying cute things like “love you more” to the warm ambiance of the string-light and lantern lit barn, every guest felt right at home and had a blast celebrating these two!
