Introduction To: By Invitation Only Blog


First of all if you are reading this, thank you for your support and taking time out of your day to get the DL on our blog, who we are, and why we are here. It means more than you’ll ever know.


Let me introduce myself, my name is Meredith and you are going to be here a lot from me. My badass boss Laura, hired me to get this blog running and I am flattered to say the least. HOWEVER, I will not be the only one you are going to hear from. You will also hear from Laura, Maggie, and Ashton. Together we complete the girl gang behind this blog.


You’re probably thinking why this blog? What is the point?

I understand and I hear you, so let me give you all the deats.

Laura had a vision of a blog that brought all of the Iowa wedding industry together and provided a one stop shop for couples to use during the planning process. From getting married herself to working in the industry, she knows how stressful the process can be and she wanted to take some of that away. With Laura’s vision, Maggie’s web design skills, Ashton’s creative mind, and my blogging experience, By Invitation Only Blog was born.

This is a place where we will recommend all of our favorite vendors in Des Moines and Iowa. Everything from florals to venues to advice straight from the brides, it will be all here. We are focused on community over competition, making the planning process easier, and showing you that Iowa is way more than what meets the eye.

We are excited to begin this journey and can’t wait for you to follow along with us. Get ready for a jaw dropping real weddings, love stories, and all things wedding.
