The Who’s Who of Melangerie NYC

The team at Melangerie in NYC always create such innovative and delightful stationery pieces. I really love the latest products they’ve come up with!

Melangerie Whoswho The Whos Who of Melangerie NYC

The new genealogy chart or “Who’s Who” uses colours to indicate how guests are related to and know the bride and groom. It’s available in your custom colour palette and would make such a great talking point for your guests.

The “What’s Where” guide can be customised in the same colours as the “Who’s Who” chart. It provides information for your guests on the venues, restaurant recommendations, leisure recommendations and hotels.

The charts are small enough to pop into a welcome bag or give to guests. There are also fun new guest gift bag packaging options. Which I think look fun with the “What’s Where” guide attached.

The Six Degrees Of Separation product is a similar concept to the “Who’s Who” chart but a little more whimsical. Presented in a book, each guest is named with symbols indicating how they know the bride and groom.

Anything that breaks the ice between guests and becomes a talking point is a winner with me. There are so many awkward moments if a couple knows no-one else at the wedding, to provide the information like this in a fun and stylish way can help everyone feel a little more comfortable.

The couple created a kissing theme for their reception. Plaques were made by A Simple Impression with various kissing quotes. Each of the guest couples had a photo kissing under the proclaimed “kissing tree” and the photos were sent to them after the wedding.

Harmony spent the night before the wedding at Lee House Bed & Breakfast, the owners treated Harmony so well, they even lent her cooler drawers for drinks and ladders to set up the cake reception! Harmony made the labels for the drinks herself, offering a wide arrange of fresh, cold treats for guests.

In keeping with the kissing themes, cocktail napkins were printed with a Judy Garland quote “It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul“.

I love today’s wedding! Satchel and Harmony, today’s Wedding Wednesday couple organised a slightly different format for their wedding day and I love how it turned the day into a beautiful relaxed celebration! The wedding was held in Pensacola, Florida and came after the couple met in college in Pensacola and fell in love!

Photography today is by Birdsong Photography.

Instead of the traditional church ceremony first, Satchel and Harmony held a brunch reception at New World Landing. This allowed the guests to meet each other and for Satchel and Harmony to mingle with guests before the formalities of the day got underway.

Harmony wore a gold Badgley Mischka dress while Satchel wore his Air Force blues. Food included delights like pineapple cream cheese blintz with fresh fruit, quiche Lorraine, home-style potatoes, sausage, ham, biscuits, Crème Brulee stuffed French toast and assorted breads and muffins.

The ceremony was filled with touches from loved ones, During the ceremony, Harmony’s dear friend Julie McClure played the piano, her grandmother read an adaptation from the Love Chapter (I Cor. 13) while her sister read “The Blessing Of The Hands”.  Harmony’s father, a pastor, performed the ceremony for the couple which was written by Harmony.

Harmony’s best friend was unable to attend the wedding due to visa issues and instead watched via web cam at 3am from her home in Malaysia.
