Oh. my god.

I’ve died.


I cannot explain how much I adore Merrilee Liddiard’s whole entire world.

I love this so much that my whole entire WED Favorites post today, is all about her.

My friend Shauna who works with me in my “real life day-time job” sent me this magical link, of Merilee, who moonlights as a pretty amazing illustrator.

I clicked on the link, where I subsequently died.


Look. Not many people these days can pull off amazingly crafty and cool well. Ok so I don’t even know where to start. First, her illustrations are amazing. Her line drawings of couples are my absolute fave, WHICH, she has parlayed into super fab wedding gifts. Seriously how awesome is that? Best wedding gift ever. She even has an ETSY STORE! Hooray! I love Etsy.

This photo was just after she gave her best friend Angie’s husband Jonathon a sneak peak at their wedding gift- a customized portrait. The actual portrait is below.

Also, and I don’t know if miss Merilee would do this, but it’s probably worth asking if Save the Date’s are possible as well with these super fab couple drawings.

Ok moving on. So little to see, with so much time. Strike that. Reverse it.

Fabulous hostess she is. Check out this Moody Mod Tea time party she threw, with all the amazing details.

Moody Mod Tea Time

Ready… the tablecloth is Ikea fabric, and the fabric banner is all vintage fabric she sewed together herself. Love.

But the absolute best part… is these crazy invitations. DIY- Easy peezy.

Cut out a little fabric tape, and sewing a stitch across the invite. Plus it doesn’t hurt it your everyday handwriting is this amazing…

Ok so clearly I think Merilee’s work is insanely amazing. She’s also super fabulous, and her husband and two boys are totally charming and vintage. I love it. Check out all of her amazing work at her blog here, and her illustrators work here.

When it comes to wedding invitations, I’m a pretty big proponent of the real deal. However… in today’s eco-friendly, socially aware world of  “green” weddings…
a girls gotta have options. And we have DISCOUNTED options for you ladies…

When I first heard about the possibility of the digital invitation, I had my doubts. It’s kind of like how I feel about the Kindle. I want to like it, but there’s something about holding a real book in your hand.

There’s still something lovely and romantic about getting an over sized envelope in your mailbox. (one and a time)

But I have to say… I was dead wrong. I checked out My Invitation Link and was completely blown away.

These are AMAZING.

It’s so easy. You pick the music, the template and the photos and click send. There are countless templates to choose from and these invitations will NOT set you back. you can add text to tell the story of how you met, information on your special day and more! 

With your paid account you can create save the date cards, invitations, announcements, even thank you cards. 

(Although I’d still send a handwritten thank you)

 As a subscriber you have the option of having your invitations and announcements hosted for three, six, or twelve months. Prices range from $39 for three months, $59 for six months and $79 for one year.

You can change the music, pictures or template in that time and you can send it to as many people as you can afford to invite!

*Remember it’s still an invitation… watch your budget and don’t invite everyone you know if you can’t afford it.

Now, here’s the best part… Wedding Belles Online Readers get a 20% discount on all invites with the CODE: weddingbelles
