After you contact us, we will reach out and set up a time to chat about your wedding! This consultation can be on the phone or in person. We will also send you a questionnaire to fill out, and then come up with a quote! Once all the details are squared away, we will then send a contract, a 50% non-refundable deposit fee, and Google document to put your invitation info & guest list addresses in. Our couples typically invest at minimum between $1,200-$1,500, depending on level of customization.
Once we get a good idea of what you envision for your dream wedding stationery, we will sketch comp drawings of different layouts & designs. Comp drawings are rough thumbnails that provide a broad idea with enough detail to see the direction it will go. You then get to choose your favorite!
This is one of the largest and most important steps of the process--and one of the most exciting!
We will paint the watercolor (if applicable) and letter names & insert headings (also, if applicable). We will then layout the design that was agreed upon and send digital proofs. Once those are approved, we will work on the envelope calligraphy while your invitations are sent for printing.
This is when your vision becomes a visual reality! We will discuss what paper colors and printing method your heart desires--digital to letterpress.
Once your invitations are printed, we will assemble them and work on the finishing touches. Your invitations will be sent out and voila!--your guests will gush and rave over how gorgeous they are--not to mention how excited they will be for your big day!
Weddings are so magical, aren't they? What can you do to convey how magical yours will be? Custom invitations!
Have you ever heard or thought to yourself, “well they [invitations] will just be thrown out anyways, so I don’t want to waste our money on that.” ? I'm sure you have one time or another. So, you also ask yourself, "what are the benefits in investing in custom invitations over a website with tons of template options?" When you opt to work with a small business, you get to be a part of the entire process from start to finish! You also get a design that is solely made just for you, rather than trying to choose a design that somewhat fits your vision that other people have chosen before.
These pretty little pieces of paper are a work of art that reflect your wedding day. Not only will you get to cherish your special day with photos, but your invitations will also be a keepsake that your guests and you will be able to cherish for the rest of their/your lives. Put them in a shadow box or place them in your favorite album with your photos! Custom invitations are an important investment that show just how magical your wedding day will be.
