One of the newer ways to send your wedding invitations is the paperless way. Emma of Paperless Wedding offers a one stop shop for all things invitations – providing tools to help you design your very own wedding website, with email invitations and envelopes to match. Not only can you personalise the theme of your invitations (even with Aussie inspired themes), you have full creative control and you can save money. Emma also provides email support to you and has extended the trial period to 3 weeks giving you plenty of time to create your site before you buy it – a great service to take advantage of.
We asked Emma of Paperless Wedding five questions in five minutes:
What is your reward after a big working day?
I tend to reach for chocolate over wine these days. So a night on the sofa, Lindt chocolate and mint tea….I am getting so old! 😉
Favourite weekend getaway?
My favourite weekend getaway would always be somewhere near to the sea, that has good food and cute little vintage shops to browse around. I could do with a break right now! Two children under 5 and being self-employed means weekend getaways are not always are relaxing as they used to be.
What is your most prized possession?
My most prized possession would have to be my engagement ring. It was my Grans and I loved it. She gave it to me when I was 21 and I wore it on my middle finger on my right hand. When I met my now husband, he knew that any ring I might want, would end up being just like the one I had (I am a creature of habit!), so why not use that one?! He knew me well and was thrilled when, over fish and chips at Doyles in Watsons Bay, he popped the question and slipped the ring off one hand and placed it on the other. Double the memories now!
One of my all time favourite meals was on holiday in Noosa. We had the best fish platter ever at Maisie’s Seafood and Steakhouse and then a lovely romantic walk about the beach.
What do you most enjoy about being in the wedding industry?
I enjoy working in the wedding industry as it is all about fun, love and happiness. That is the goal of a marriage and life in general. Not many jobs have that it’s core. I also offer something that is different, save couples a lot of money and I get to help the environment too by reducing the carbon footprint of a wedding and saving a tree or two along the way.
