Metallics are popping up everywhere in 2017-18 weddings.  Not just gold and silver, but pearl, copper, pewter and the hottest one-rose gold.  Same with wedding invitations.  Retailers are seeing a significant uptick in sales in this category.  And why not?  Bling adds a touch of glam to your wedding, whether your style is very formal or vintage casual.  Any season is appropriate-and can use some added shimmer-even if you just choose to embellish your invites with a metallic monogram or calligraphy.  The resurgence of the Great Gatsby style is also reflected in its new popularity.

Janice Murray

Janice is an old soul in the wedding industry. She worked in retail, selling wedding gowns and renting tuxedos. After that she started her own business creating custom wedding favors and artificial flowers, and hiring out as a wedding decorator. In 2000, when the wedding industry was just finding the Internet, Janice started her own theme wedding website, “ASK GINKA”. The successful resource site ran for 10 years until life and kids took her away from devoting enough time to it. Her university background in Clothing & Textiles and Theatre Design was a great foundation for these activities. When it is all put together, Janice has a wide range of knowledge and experience in this industry-and has been married 25+ years to her sweetheart, Mark. This is the first year Janice has been working with Wedding Recycle. She is involved in sales, marketing, writing and event planning, and she is very excited to be back in the wedding industry.
