Other Roles for Children in Your Wedding

Posted by in Ask Imbue You

Yes, there is a growing trend of not allowing children at weddings. But what if you not only want kids at your wedding, you want them to be in the wedding?

If that’s you, there are lots of ways to incorporate children on your special day. Here are some roles beyond flower girl or ring bearer for the younger ones at your wedding.



Children can help guests to their seats, hand out programs and direct guests to the cocktail or reception area.

More outgoing kids may be good readers during the ceremony.


Wedding Day Helpers

There are so many last minute things that need to get done on your wedding day. You can enlist kids to run food to the wedding party before the ceremony, decorate the getaway car, help direct an orderly flow for the buffet, and/or hand out favors,  birdseed or streamers to guests for the exit.

Junior Groomsmen or Junior Bridesmaid

Older kids, around ages 8 to 14, can more formally participate in your ceremony.


Give Away the Bride

What a special way for children to welcome a new spouse into the family? Children of the bride or groom can walk the down the aisle with their parents, a nice beginning for a new family.

And if my love could grow wings,
I’d be soaring in flight.”

Vintage Map Destination Wedding Save the Date and Invitation Set

Posted by in Our Designs

Imbue You Vintage Map wedding invitation set

In a way, this handmade wedding save the date and invitation stationery set brings me full circle because I first created it for a friend who I met at the wedding of our very first customer.

The vintage map, pulled directly from a 1953 world atlas, is from another indie shop owner. And so with the world at your fingertips, you can choose which slice of the map to feature in your invitation design.

Justin and I created this map stationery design to allow couples to celebrate vintage, travel theme or destination weddings with a design that hearkens back to the past but isn’t stuck in it. The color of the vintage map is customizable and overlaid with a classically vintage border that’s been updated by modern design placement.

We also have vintage maps available for California, Florida and South Carolina to use as well. Visit our stationery site for ordering details on the full stationery set, save the date or invitation set. See the set in detail below:
