The Event Essentials

The Event Essentials had just launched phase 1 of their new website - and it's beautiful. The Event Essentials, with Kim McDowell as the master designer/planner, is a planning and design boutique that offers gorgeous designer stationery pieces with personalized touches. They "will take any event from simple to spectacular from the first to the last impression". They offer designer invitations, distinct event planning and decorative accessories. And their event planning packages have the cutest names: Cubic Zirconia (getting started), One Carat Round (day of director), Two Carat Princess (event designer), Three Carat Radiant (coordinate & design), Four Carat Marquise (full planning), and Loose Diamonds (a la carte).

My personal favorite? The designer invitations with swarovski rhinestones. Who doesn't love a little extra bling? You can also select other types of embellishments such as ribbon or even scents.

With each of the designer invitations, you can select coordinating collection pieces that might include: reply cards, information cards, reception cards, dining cards, place cards, favor tags, table numbers, save the dates, favor tags, programs, and thank you notes.

My favorite part of the site? On the individual invitation pages, there are recommended accessories to keep your theme consistent (seen underneath each of the invitation collection's detailed photos). The accessories are amazing and truly do coordinate with the invitation collections.

PS: The Event Essentials also offers pre-designed or custom designed monograms and couples logos. {see the elegant designs here}
