Events | The Little Black Dress Revue, Part Deux

**Update! Use promo code LBDBride for a $5 discount on your Little Black Dress Revue tickets!  Register here.

It’s time for Round 2!  Sarah of Music City Events and Gregory of Gregory Byerline Photography are once again joining forces to bring you an exclusive bridal event on February 24th.  And Design in August will be the featured stationery studio!

  • It’s an actual party for couples to experience what their wedding day can be like.  Instead of visiting 30-40 vendors in an 8×8 space at bridal shows, see 16 carefully selected vendors in action.
  • Enjoy a swanky night out at the Noah Liff Opera Center from 6:30–9:30 p.m.  It’s a fairly new event venue with modern & stylish sensibility. (Follow the link – isn’t it fabulous?!)
  • Design in August will be the featured custom invitations designer!  I will be on hand to show samples and chat about my design services for your custom design needs.  You will also get to see my designs in action, as I will be providing all the custom paper goods for the party.
  • Savor delicious hors d’oeuvres and scrumptious desserts (Hello, TLC-featured Maples Wedding Cakes!) while enjoying Little Black Dress cocktails (with stir sticks designed by yours truly!) and local brews with music by a live band.  Bring your dancing shoes!

Each $15 ticket includes dinner, dessert and dancing PLUS an entry into a drawing for a Grand Prize worth over $5,000 from top-shelf Nashville wedding vendors!  That’s three zeroes… and a big chunk saved from your overall wedding budget.  Among so many wedding goodies, the Grand Prize Package includes custom thank you cards by Design in August. See a complete list of bridal vendors at the Little Black Dress Revue vendor page.  See you there!

Branding | Logo Design + Brand Management

There’s more than stationery coming out of the Studio these days.  Did you know that Design in August offers logo & identity package design?  From logos to business cards, letterheads to direct mail pieces, brochures to out-of-home (OOH) marketing – even vehicle wraps!  If you need it designed, I can design it for you.  What are the core values, vision and goals of your venture?  How do you hope to visually communicate those ideals?  What colors strike a chord with you and best fit the product or service you are selling?  I would love to help you answer these questions.

Stationery | Vance Suite

I realize there still is snow on the ground, but in the world of design we stay ahead by a season – if not two!  Today’s post features an invitation suite for a spring wedding.  A night-before dessert reception, a traditional ceremony in a church, followed by a garden party.  Three pieces of varying heights stack inside a neat little pocket folder, their tops all coordinated and contrasting.  These then slip into an exterior envelope – all in tints of peapod green.  Perfect for May, wouldn’t you say?  The month of “Yes, you May.” Be sure to catch the Inspiration Board behind this invite for a whimsical garden fête.

Interested in customizing this suite for your upcoming event?  Message me using the above “Say Hello” form.  To learn more about stationery design by Design in August check out the About page.  Cheers!

Events | Nashville Bridal Brunch

{WINNERS} I am happy to announce the winners of the Design in August Studio Giveaway!!  The lucky brides-to-be are Miss Megan Deising (winner of the custom return address rubber stamp) and Miss Leah Caudle (winner of the custom thank you note set).  Congrats, ladies!!  I am excited to design these items for you and look forward to posting them here on the blog.

I was delighted to show my stationery work at HER Nashville’s Bridal Brunch this past Sunday.  We had an excellent turnout at Vanderbilt’s Commodore Ballroom and I am pleased as punch – or, should I say, mimosas!  It was such fun meeting with lovely brides-to-be (and their attentive grooms-to-be) as we chatted stationery needs and paper goods in a lively, brunch atmosphere.  I also had fun seeing which pieces caught the most attention – hello, lined envelopes & save the date postcards!  A highlight for attendees was the fashion show, featuring gown trends for Spring 2011 (ruffles! ruffles! ruffles!).  And a highlight for Design in August was not one, but TWO Studio Giveaways!  Brides entered to win either a set of custom thank you notes OR a custom return address rubber stamp.  I will be announcing the two lovely winners tomorrow.  Thanks, HER Nashville for hosting a can’t-miss brunch.  Cheers!

Stay tuned on Wednesday when I will announce the two winners of my Studio Giveaway!  Could it be you?!
