It is a good idea to plan a list of the particular moments and people that you want to make sure are photographed during your special event. And don’t forget to include the little details, table settings, flowers, gifts and things that made your day special.
One thing you should add to your list, is a lesson in photography and photoshop to help you learn some quick tips from experts. Some times it is the little things that mean a lot, like hands on tutorials in a small class environment.
With all the new and affordable digital options photographs we all seem to be taking more photos. Why not make the best of that at enroll in a lesson to update your skills or gift certificate a lesson for someone who will be taking more photos as part of planning for your special event.
All About Paper is proud to host Point Shoot Play for lessons in both photography and photoshop, both in small class settings and one on one. Melissa makes everyone welcome and tailors classes to suit your needs. One of my favorite parts of the classes is where she shows us how to look good in front of the camera and then how to make fun alterations like this example.
Please phone to secure your place in the next class and be amazed with the amount of tips that can quickly improve the quality of your photos.
We are also organising an option of 1on1 private tutorials in either photography or photoshop with Point Shoot Play, please call the shop to confirm availability.

Whatever type of gift you choose, they are sure to appreciate your thoughtfulness, and your shared enthusiasm for their personal celebration, engagement, baby shower, christening, anniversary or special birthday.
Gifts bring smiles on the face of the recipients, a way to send warm wishes and congratulate them in a memorable way. All About Paper has many options to help you in gift giving, gift certificates can be used towards the invitation range, products or classes and we have a large range of albums in a variety of colours and themes.
If you are having an event and it is special, written invitations are a way of setting the scene and communicating your story. All About Paper have years of experience in coordinating special events and creating invitations. You are in safe hands with the All About Paper design team.
A quick summary of some things you might want to consider, for big events as well as special birthdays, anniversaries, graduation parties, showers, well just any occasion that you want to invite people and make it special.
Save the date cards A great way to let your guests from out of town know about your wedding date is to send Save-the-Date cards. They may be essential for planning flights and booking time off to be with you. Save-the-dates should be sent out at least 3 to 6 months in advance of your wedding date.
Dress code should be included in formal invitations. The style of your invitation and message projected can also reinforce formal vs casual events.
Money and gifts
Today it is very common to ask for money instead of gifts, how you ask for it is where etiquette is important. You may use a wishing well or a gift registry but please don’t include anything about gifts in the invitation itself, a separate insert is more appropriate.
Response deadlines should be no later than 1 month before the special day, or the date your caterer needs a final count. RSVP cards included with your wedding invitation are a great way to make sure your guests reply quickly.
And with that I am leaving an rsvp to you and all the lovely people we have met at recent expos and events. All About Paper is always ready to help make your special event as stress free as possible with our large range of pretty papers and well qualified design team. Invitations can be a special touch for any occasion, anniversary, birthday, graduation, any time you want to say, the event is special and so are your guests.

Shopping in Carindale today I ventured into a gift shop, drawn in by the show of reduced price wine glasses at the door. The assistant was helping a young male, approx late 20's, purchase tealight holders (small brandy balloon shapes) - no my life does not evolve around alcohol - and she was putting sand and tealights into them.
"Isn't he gorgeous" she said, "he's going to meet his girlfriend down on the beach, where he will have all the candles lit - and he's going to propose" - I got goosebumps. How romantic was that.
I told him I thought he was a lovely young man, and that whoever he was proposing to was lucky to have him, and wished him and his fiance to be happiness, health and a long life together.
I do hope she said yes, and if she did and if the couple would like to come and see me I would be happy to give them a very special price on their wedding invitations.

As a new twist on the standard write your name here style of guest book why not create something that will be cherished by everyone and fun for your guests to make.
Place some pretty pens, instamatic camera, scissors, a selection of pretty paper, a glue stick on the table along with your guest book. You could either have blank pages for them to doodle as they like or maybe get them started with posing a question to answer, their tips for a happy marriage on suggestions for a good life together.
Tell your guests to write a little something in the guest book and to be creative! You will be amazed at how interesting the book will turn out. Best of all it will be a statement that is uniquely you and your guests on the day of your special celebration.

When we say All About we really do mean everything including corporate invitations.
Members of our Design Team have been busy PAs themselves and know how it feels when you suddenly get nominated for project planning on a large corporate event and they asked if you can bring it in under budget. This is some of our top tips to add to your check list.
Theme: This might be the time when uncomplicated is best. Awards night = gold, Christmas = touch of green, annual gala ball = black tie
Or do your corporate colours or logo need to be considered ?
Guests: How many ?
