When thinking of fun and creative ways of announcing a wedding, balloons come to mind because they brighten everyone’s day and bring them joy to the wonderful news of your announcement. Balloons are fun because they playfully make the recipient inflate them to get all the information on the balloon. They can vary in size but the most popular size for Save the Date’s is 12” latex. These are a great size because they are large enough to fit all the info for the wedding and they fit well in small invitation envelopes.

Wedding Gift Etiquette

What is the proper amount of money to spend on a wedding gift?

For a wedding today you should plan on spending a minimum for $50 -$75 or more depending on your relationship with the bride and groom. For sure you should not spend less than $35 unless you want to be considered a cheap skate.

And don’t be one of those people who don’t give a gift. If you go to the wedding buy a gift, or don’t go.

Now, I have a rule that I use for second marriages and weddings. I don’t like going to second weddings, because the second wedding may be the second of many weddings. And I already bought one of you a gift for the first wedding and I am not buying you another gift for the second, third or fourth wedding. Now people may argue that if it’s the bride’s first wedding, but the groom’s second wedding shouldn’t you buy a gift? Too, bad, if you are the bride, you already knew what you were getting with the groom already being married once. He’s not getting another gift from me. So I usually avoid these weddings because I don’t agree. Now if the spouse is deceased, then that’s another matter.

And if you go to the bridal registry, buy a place setting of dishes, or silverware. If there is a spatula for $10, buy a few more items closer to the $35-$50-$75 or more range.

Now recently, I had a wedding invite and the bride and groom boldly asked for money for a trip to Mexico and wanted people to pay with Paypal, I am not making this stuff up. I said are you kidding me? Why don’t I just give you my credit card and you spend whatever you want?

Photoballoons No Minimum

If you need imprinted photo balloons with no minimum then you have come to the right place.

When I started the business, I wanted to give people what they want, and one thing they wanted was a low minimum. Why make people order 2,000 balloons when all they want is 25 custom photo balloons for a birthday party. So you can order 1-25 photo balloons and get free shipping, free set-up, and same day service when you need it most.

Custom printed photo balloons are great for birthday balloons, campaign balloons, anniversary balloons, wedding balloons, and retirement balloons.

Wedding Invitation RSVP

Question: How far ahead should you send a wedding invitation?

Answer: In my previous posts, I discussed the idea of 6 weeks to 2 months are proper amount of time for your guests to be prepared to attend a wedding.

Question: When should guests RSVP?

Answer: Guests should give notice minimum RSVP three weeks, minimum two weeks. So request a minimum two weeks. This will also give you plenty of time to give notice to your chef or caterer for a final head count.
