Check Out Kendra and Hank’s Custom Wedding Stationery

For former playmate Kendra Wilkinson and her new hubby NFL star Hank Baskett, ordinary wedding stationery just wouldn’t cut it. For their recent wedding at the Playboy mansion and the prewedding parties the couple chose to send out custom designed invites by Paper Olive (who, coincidentally, is currently nominated for a WeddingChannel.com Bridal Blog Award).

Check out these pretty whimsical invites. Let’s dissect the fabulousness, shall we? Don’t they just pop with those stripes of lavender? The coordinated frames highlights event information while a simple key design truly accents Kendra and Hank’s “thank you” message to their guests. Very nice you two, and a job well done Paper Olive!

If you’re looking to add a one-of-a-kind feel to your wedding day, but aren’t into splurging on a pricey custom designer gown, consider going for couture invitations instead. As you know, celebrities throw (and attend!) parties all the time, and when they do, they make sure their invitations are as unique and personal as the event itself. New York area A-listers turn to Ceci New York for couture invites with true star power. (Katherine Heigl and Diddy are fans!) And, who can blame them? These invite booklets are hot, hot, hot ladies!

The company boasts amazing invitations for any event, but they sure do seem to know their brides. Those looking for their own personal stamp on their invites will love the staff's "it's all about you" vibes. Skip the Photoshop tutorial and sit down with a Ceci specialist to discuss your own custom wedding invitation logos and designs. Looking for a real show-stopper? The Ceci Luxe collection is what I like to call "over-the-top, done right"! Consider yourself more of a romantic bride? Their Ceci Style line takes a fresh approach to working with the couple’s unique wedding theme, while the Ceci Classic set keeps the more traditional bride in mind. I don't know about you, but I think I just found my wedding style obsession of the week!

Josh Duhamel and Fergie’s Cartoon Wedding Invite

Josh_fergie_cartoon_invitation_caricature Las Vegas star Josh Duhamel and his new wife, Black Eyed Peas singer, Fergie, obviously have a great sense of humor – why else would they want to gift their guests with a goofy picture of themselves following their weekend wedding in Southern California. According to People, the couple approached Lehr & Black (a Los Angeles design agency that specializes in invitations and graphic design) to create a wedding caricature of themselves to hand out to their friends and family.

"Josh has a love for art," says Ellen Black, "and viewed it as giving away of piece of art."

Now we wouldn’t go as far to call this a masterpiece, but we do think it’s a shame that the couple limited this particular art project to just the bride and groom. We say why not make it a family affair and invite a wedding caricature artist to the big event? We did a simple Google search and found that there a dozens of caricature artists around the country that specialize in wedding artwork, which included everything from digital caricatures done before the big day, to artists who entertain at big events like engagement parties, bridal showers, and weddings.

While not everyone’s cup of tea, it is a fun and creative activity you can add to your special day – and ensure its memorable experience for your guests (you know, since they now have something new to hang on their wall!).

Ellen and Portia Tell Friends and Family to "Save the Date"

Ellen_portia_std_2 When Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson caught up with Grey's Anatomy star T.R. Knight and his boyfriend on the red carpet on Monday, the couple was happy to report that they had in fact received their first invite to a  gay wedding since California's recent historic decision to lift the ban on  same sex marriages.

"We're going to Ellen's wedding," said Knight. "We got a little save the date card."

Ever since Ellen Degeneres announced her plans to wed longtime girlfriend Portia De Rossi on her talk show, the support from her fans and friends has been tremendous. While taping a pre-recorded interview for the show, newlywed and first daughter Jenna Hager jokingly offered to let the couple hold their ceremony at the Bush family ranch.

"They're excellent people and we're really happy that we got invited," said Knight.

So will T.R. and his new love be sending out their own save-the-dates, anytime soon?

"Normally, six months is a little too soon," says Knight. "But, I'm happy to have the pressure."

No news yet on what Ellen and Portia's save-the-dates looked like, but we found a few we love on Outvite.com. Even if your wedding day is rapidly approaching, it's never too late to send save-the-dates. WeddingChannel.com has an easy to use tool that will help you create, personalize, and send yours in minutes. Check it out!
