Here’s the thing about etiquette: its meant to help you treat others with respect, but because it’s codified over time, it can sometimes be too old-fashioned, too imprecise, or even too insulting.

It's probably no secret that we're Pinterest crazy, and one of our favorite new Pinterest projects is creating inspiration boards for specific Skipt designs. We've even invited the designers of each design to collaborate on the boards, meaning you're getting some amazing inspiration right from the person whose vision and talent created the design in the first place. Today we're spotlighting our Organic Leaves Save the Date, designed by Ellis Design.
We are so excited to finally bring you new products by new designers -- nearly 100 new designs in all. They run the gamut from abstract to artistic, from modern to majestic, but what unites them all is keen attention to details, skillful use of typography, and a finely struck balance between being on-trend and true-classic.
Skipt Paper Co. has always specialized in elopements, tiny weddings, and other non-traditional ways of tying the knot. Now, we’re happy to introduce a new collection of wedding invitations, because sometimes you want to invite people to your non-traditional shindig. And we think that’s cool.
We were talking with some Skipt customers recently about how we don’t see a ton of people sharing our content, our website, or our products on social media. Here’s what those customers told us: y’all are planning in secret. Duh!
So what better way for us to help than to gather a list of top tech tools that can help you collaboratively plan your wedding or elopement SECRETLY.
One of our goals here at Skipt is to be a resource, an advocate, a source of inspiration, and a supportive community - to be a place where elopement is at the forefront of the conversation about weddings, not a footnote, apology, or adaptation. If you'd like to help contribute to creating this kind of resource, you can do so with credit (and links if appropriate) OR completely annonymously.
You should never feel like just because you eloped, you owe your loved ones anything. That said, if you and your beloved decide that you want to include your loves ones in the celebration, we’ve come up with a list of eight ways to do so. Pick and choose the ones that work best for you.
I was talking recently to a couple that’s engaged and we were talking about how quickly wedding planning just builds momentum and heft and weight and before you know it, it can be this whole thing that you don’t feel like you even really made happen.
And I told that couple that probably the best way to deal with that snowball phenomenon is to sit down together and set intentions for the wedding.
