Introducing our first vendor incentive program! Recently the Beet & Path team has been discussing: What is life without a little friendship? So we decided to gather up our handpicked list of preferred vendors and feature them on our new page "Our Friends." This page can now be accessed in the main navigation menu throughout our site. These vendors are our personal favourites in the industry and we know that they can make all of your wedding dreams come true (and of course.. they make good friends too ;D). So since they are so great and our clients are so great, we sent all our friends a gift (because thats what friends do right?)! These certificates are to be distributed to all of their clients, like you!

All you need to do is contact one of "Our Friends," let them know you would like to work with both of us, and voila- you will receive one of these (above) little guys. So make sure to hit up one of the amazing vendors for your wedding and feel the benefits of having 10% off all Beet & Path services!

I can not even begin to describe how excited I am that winter has breathed its last blustery breath (well we hope..). Being at home with a new baby all winter long can make the most self sufficient person go absolutely mad. Now that the weather is looking up and I can go outside and 'smell the roses', metaphorically and actually, I wanted to celebrate! I have decided that each and every season I will start doing a promotion for Beet & Path, so for spring my promo is 10% off when you spend $1000 or more on invitation suites or invitation packages!

Those are some crazy savings right there, you lucky dogs, you! Remember that even if your wedding isn't until 2015, you can book with me now and get this deal. Don't miss out, ORRR you could test your luck and wait to see what next seasons promo is. Hmmm.. What will I do for a promo that will sizzle for summer (so lame).

Have a great day :)

This coming march I am so excited that I am finally bringing B&P to a couple wedding shows. The first one this coming Sunday is the Dragonfly Wedding Show in Guelph. The Dragonfly Wedding show is apparently a very small, intimate show (around 50 brides attend), but even if one bride likes my work, it will be worth it. I am treating it as a bit of a test run as well, it will be a good size for my first wedding show. Fifty brides will be a very relaxed atmosphere compared to the 500 that I am going to have to deal with at the end of March. I say 'deal' in the nicest of ways, haha, I just mean that it will be a lot... but I am very excited to show them all what i can do, so hopefully it goes well! For my booth I wanted to make something that would hopefully last a long time, something I could use over and over for multiple shows. It is currently under construction (kind of...) and I am getting a  little bit antsy considering it isn't built yet and I have less than a week to pull it all together.

My rough booth plan- a constructed wooden back wall with wall sconces, a cut out sign and a few hanging plants. I also bought some shutters to sit beside the wall for more display space.

It's on sale right now!! Click.

It's on sale right now!! Click.

So as you can see, I am getting a wood back wall constructed that has to be freestanding. It will also need to be two different pieces for transporting. Right now I have everything I need to display in it, the trunks and props. I am just waiting on my printer for the rest of my samples and I have to paint a few things as well as buy some plants. I am also really unsure of what I am going to do for flooring, but I bought that very pretty (and inexpensive) rug, so I may use that.

Generally at shows you are supposed to give away an item as well, so I am doing a raffle on April first for prizes. I will be handing out some raffle tickets, that I printed up, to any bride that signs up for more information and I will be raffling off a few great prizes and discounts like 80 free invitations and 150 dollars off any of my services. 

These are what the raffle tickets look like, I am going to stamp the raffle number in the bottom space of the ticket! There's more info on the back, but you get the jist of things.

Love in many different languages, is still a mysterious thing ;)

I am also giving away some cards in the swag bags at the show. Above is the front of the cards, they are in the process of being printed. Its the word love in 15 different languages, made from water colour and some hand rendered fonts.

As you may have guessed, the second trade show I'm at is the Lovestruck Expo in Toronto. I am really excited for this show as it's going to be way larger than anything I have ever done, and I will finally get to show off my work to a big crowed. I mostly want to see how people respond to me and how I can improve for next time, but I also really want to land a few brides! There are not very many stationers that are displaying either so that is a serious advantage. I am hoping to have around 8 suites for the Dragonfly show and around 15 for Lovestruck. Here is a little sample of one that I am going to have displayed.

Don't mind the pink, that's the bleed.

You will have to see it in person to really understand how it will come together but I am really excited about this one because I am also going to be displaying a cake topper with it, something I would really like to start doing more of. Obviously I love doing the invitations and RSVPs, but I would love to expand a bit and do more additional items and day-of decor for brides as well. I was really inspired by some cake toppers that I saw on pinterest too and really want to get into making paper flowers. Thanks to this guy. Buy it if you love paper and pretty things!

Anyway, enough about my upcoming adventures, check out the shows and grab your tickets if you can!!

Have a great day!
Love, Kay

A couple days ago I was lucky enough to have some of my work featured on the popular wedding blog Green Wedding Shoes. I had been involved in an inspiration shoot called Disco berry a couple months prior and we were eager to get it published during Valentines week. Et Voila! It was!! I am happy to say that I have added another notch into B&Ps belt and will continue to do so from here on out. The shoot ended up looking fantastic and I have a ton of other wonderful wedding vendors to thank. Below is a video by Bright Sky Wedding designs of our shiny and berry delicious (lame) shoot.

The shoot itself was inspired by disco balls, meets fresh luscious red berries, meets vintage 1970's styles. For the paper products I focused on the reds and lavenders from our colour pallet. I tried to give everything the look of being soaked in berry juice and then coated in diamonds.

I decided to create a theme of works using one of my product packages, the middle man, which generally includes invites, RSVPs, and 3 add-ons. My clients usually pick table numbers, place cards and menus for the add-ons, but this time instead of menus I wanted to do some funky treat toppings- idea courtesy of LovebyLynzie. They turned out as cute little waved flags that read "Love is a Disco" and were dipped in silver glitter at the ends.

The table numbers were simple, they were white numbers on the red berry juice backgrounds with a gradient of silver glitter from the bottom up. The place cards however were big raspberry illustrations hanging from lavender ribbon on the back of each chair. The same cut out raspberry was also used on a smaller scale for the RSVPs.

The other elements for the shoot turned out absolutely gorgeous, what a talented team I worked with! You can check out more of the shoot here +. You can see more pictures of my contribution in the wedding section of my work page. Or check out the various vendors who were involved below.

Have a great day ;)
Love, Kay
