I have been a BIG fan of Blush Printables for what seems like forever already. And I’m so excited to now be able to call her family as she and her pretty printable paper goodness join us in the Vendor Boutique! This week the spotlight is on Jen (who is simply beautiful, both inside and out), her eye for all things glamorous in style, and her business, Blush Printables, custom designs for life’s special moments, and the modern do-it-yourself bride.

{Jen} has been involved with art her entire life. Her great-grandma taught her how to paint before she could even write her name! (Amazing!) She didn’t discover graphic design until she was in high school, but fell instantly in love with it. Her grand plans included working in animation, but wound up going to college to pursue a Fine Arts degree. She soon changed her major to Communications, never straying far from the design aspect of things. She spent the first few years out of college designing print material for a local non-profit. A year later, her boyfriend proposed. It wasn’t until she began designing the pretty paper for her own August 2008 wedding that she realized her true passion was in the wedding industry. From there, Blush Printables was born. And just last fall, Jen was able to go full-time with her design business, working exclusively with brides right from the comfort of her own home. Around the same time, she and her husband, Ben, welcomed their first child together, the most beautiful baby girl, Chloe!

{Most Frequently Asked Question} Jen has worked with a number of brides concerned with how to appropriately word their reception cards to avoid the addition of uninvited guests. Jen always recommends using the “accepts or declines” option (or a variation of the phrase) on the response card INSTEAD of having a fill-in-the-blank for the “number of guests attending”. The latter invites (no pun intended) your guests to invite others to your wedding – which can be a huge headache when you’ve invited a family of 3 who RSVPs for a family of 6! Yikes!

{Advice for Couples} “When we were engaged, a newly married couple told my husband and I to quietly escape to a corner during our reception and let everything soak in. I didn’t quite understand what they meant at the time, but we took this advice… and that’s when it hit me. We’d spent months agonizing over napkin folds, seating charts, menu choices and floral arrangements. And suddenly all the stress and tears didn’t matter. I felt silly for being so overwhelmed during our engagement. The only thing that mattered in that moment was that we were married and surrounded by our family and friends who were there to support us and celebrate with us.

My advice to all brides is not to sweat the small stuff. No one is going to know if you forgot to pack a change of shoes for the reception. Not one is going to care if dinner is served ten minutes late. And I guarantee you that no one will notice if you forgot to set out a bathroom basket. As long as you’re happy, married to the love of your life, and surrounded by those who support you… then I promise you, you’ve done everything right.”

{What Inspires Her} “My daughter. I know, I know, it sounds sooo cheesy!! She’s the entire reason I pushed myself to get where I am today, though. I wanted nothing more than to be a SAHM and run my own design studio, and that’s where I am today. Everything I design I am proud of, and I want her to look back and be proud of her mom. I’m inspired by the motivation raising a child gives me. I’m inspired by music, pretty packaging and everything in my life.
