Are you getting married in Greenville, SC and looking for a cool and unique event space? Here are a few that I recommend.
Zen offers the perfect array of stylish options for your big celebration. The space is open and unique, with rice paper lanterns hanging from the high ceilings.
Bonus: Japanese Bamboo Garden. The facility's outdoor ceremony space sits within an exciting Japanese Bamboo Garden that includes water sculptures, decorative statues, and unusual plants.
A newer space to Greenville, The Upper Room is located just off of Main Street downtown. They have modern and unique seating, great for photos.
Bonus: There is an amazing rooftop, open when the weather is nice.
Revel is the only event venue located on Stone Avenue, between downtown and the Historic Earle District. The facade is modern urban, but the inside appears open and a bit rustic. It's also located next to a hip bowling alley!
Bonus: It has a cool outside promenade, artistic signage, and old whiskey barrels to add to the ambiance.
The newest event space to Greenville, Avenue was designed by the celebrated architect, Keith Summerour. If you like modern design, this place is for you.
Bonus: Avenue has an amazing view of downtown Greenville.
Built in 1882 and originally used as a warehouse to store cotton and cigars, the Old Cigar Warehouse was renovated in 2013 as an event venue.
Bonus: You can get some really great photos in front of the old Coca Cola mural on the side of the building.
You may have noticed wax seals have made a comeback. We love this! Wax seals are so elegant and memorable. Wax seals are also a great way to add a personal touch to your wedding invitations, making them stand out from the crowd. And they are surprisingly affordable! Embossing stamps for wax seals can start at $30. Wax sticks usually cost about $5 each, and are available in a huge assortment of colors. A few of our favorite companies for buying wax seals are Wax Seals, Stamptitude, and Nostalgic Impressions. Wax seals can even be used on escort cards or business cards.....just think of the creative possibilities!
Oprah's Favorite Things is an annual list of items that Oprah considers to be wonderful gifts for the holidays. I checked it out this year, and I noticed that many of the items on her list are excellent gift ideas for wedding guests. Are you having a tough time thinking about what you should give your wedding guests? Check out her list on Amazon, and see what we recommend here. At the very least, Oprah's list is great for inspiration.
Does it seem scary to buy letterpress printed wedding invitations online? Are you worried about the quality of the printing, types of paper used, or just feeling overwhelmed with options?
Whoever you choose to work with for printing your wedding invitations, we recommend ordering a sample pack of papers and previous invitation samples. If the business you are considering using has enough work and experience "under their belt" they will be happy to send you samples. If you let them know what more about your wedding inspiration, they should also be happy to include samples that may fit your style.
You can order a sample pack from us for $20. Email us today to request one!
P.S. It's also important to think ahead when ordering letterpress wedding invitations. Letterpress printing is an art form, and printers will always have a number of jobs to do. Most companies will print letterpress invitations in approximately three weeks. If they are designing for you too, you have to allow at least a week for this process.

Our customers often ask us the best way to invite specific guests to their wedding, in other words….how do you only invite certain guests and make this clear to them on the wedding invitation?
The most traditional way to do this is to include inner envelopes with the guests’ names. But only a small percentage of our customers choose to address their customers this way.
Instead, most couples use wording such as this on the RSVP card:
1) A line for ____ seats have been reserved in your honor
2) ____ of _____ will be attending
Either way looks nice on the rsvp card, and is a polite way to tell your guests to only bring who is invited.
