Congratulations!

Being engaged is a lot of things, but there’s one thing it shouldn’t be: stressful.

 

What if you had a friend that could help create, assemble, and mail your perfect wedding invitations for you? What if instead of spending the weekend addressing envelopes, you saved yourself a hand cramp and instead were able to get outside on a hiking adventure, grab brunch and check out that new local shop that opened up in your neighborhood, and just enjoy your engagement?

Let me help you get your precious engagement hours and months back.

The year that you’re engaged should be one of the happiest times of your life, but often it’s filled with venue comparisons, dress fittings, cost stress, and family chirping in your ear— making the whole process downright stressful.

By working with me, you’ll have that friend to listen to your unique and special love story and help create the perfect wedding stationery to capture the mood of your special day. You won't have to stress about spending your time hand addressing 200 envelopes...because it’s already included. No special add-on or investment required.

I strive to help my couples be able to enjoy those precious months of their life together and take back their time to enjoy dinner at their favorite restaurant, or a weekend getaway to that bed and breakfast in the woods. The fiance period of a relationship is special and all too often if flies by in the blink of an eye.

Let me help you get some of that time back to enjoy together, and still have beautiful, thoughtfully crafted wedding stationery that you and your families will cherish forever.

The Experience

The relationship with my clients is more than just a vendor/couple relationship. I want to feel like a friend that you can trust, who understands just how important your special day truly is. From our very first consultation, I want to hear about you and your story. Each couple has a unique story to tell and by tapping into the heart of that story, we will be able to create a wedding collection that truly speaks to you and your relationship and captivate your guests from the moment they receive their save the date in the mailbox.

 

The Process

 

Complimentary Consultation:

Let’s schedule a time to talk about you! I love to connect with my local couples for a glass of wine or beer during happy hour to hear all about your adventure filled love story. For my non-local couples, let’s jump on a happy hour Google Hangout call to hear about your special day. Together we will review your consultation worksheet, chat about your wedding stationery dreams, and discuss a timeline.

 

Proposal

Following our consultation, you will receive a custom proposal based on your budget and your stationery hopes and dreams. This proposal will also include a contract and invoice for your convenience to review.

 

Booking and Welcome Kit

In order to get your special day on my design calendar, it’s time to book! Booking requires a 25% non-refundable retainer that will be applied to your final invoice. Once you’re on my design calendar, you’ll receive access to your personal client portal that will include a welcome kit and tentative timeline for your project.

 

Let’s Get Designing! Now we’re to the good part.

  • 8–10 Months Out:

If your collection includes a save the date, the design process will begin seven to nine months prior to your wedding date. The process will begin on Pinterest, where you will be able to invite me in to see all your wedding inspiration. Together we will curate a collection of images that will serve as a vision board for your project. By using that vision board, I’ll create a save the date that is perfectly aligned with your dream wedding stationery goals. Through a digital proofing process, we will refine and perfect your save the date design and envelope details. Once a proof is approved and invoice paid, your save the dates will move to print!

  • 4–5 Months Out:

It’s time to get to work on your invitation designs! Prior to jumping into the design, we will touch base to determine the details for your suite, then I’ll get to work crafting your perfect designs. Once the initial design is complete, you will be able to review the options through a full digital proofing system and together we will perfect your invitation suite. Following the final proof approval and invoice paid, your invitation suite details will move to print!

  • 2–3 Months Out

For my local couples, let’s meet up to celebrate your completed invitation suite over a glass of wine. For my non-local couples, your invitation suite details will be packaged and shipped to you free of charge. Now it’s time to affix your stamps and pop those beauties into the mail. Now it’s time to kick back and wait for those RSVPs to come in.

Don’t want to worry about collecting your own postage?

I can take care of that for you! Just ask for more details.

  • 1–2 Months Out

If your collection includes ceremony programs, menus, or escort cards, this is when work on your day of details will begin. After providing the details for your designs, I will get to work creating those beautiful final touches for your special day. Each detail will go through it’s own proofing process, and once each is perfected, your final designs will go to print and be delivered 1–2 weeks prior to your special day.


Now let’s pop some bubbly and celebrate your big day!
