STEP ONE

The best way for me to get to know your style and needs is for you to fill out the wedding questionnaire. Within 24-36 hours I will reach out with more details and send you a custom invitation proposal based on your needs.

STEP TWO

This is the fun part! I will put together a collection of inspiration photos, a color scheme, and specific design elements that capture the vision of your invitation suite. I will also include a mockup sketch of your invitation to give you an idea of what the real thing will look like before I dive fully into the design process. 

STEP THREE

Now is when I start painting your design, hand lettering your type, scanning, and making digital edits to your "completely you" invitation collection. Before we send them to print, you will receive a full mockup of your invitation suite and any other pieces we add on.

STEP FOUR

Your wedding invitations will begin printing while I take care of putting them together for you. If you select wax seals, hand calligraphy addressing, envelope liners, and/or ribbons in your package I will be making sure they are all in their places and secured to mail! You won't have to worry about another timely detail on your wedding checklist! 

STEP FIVE

The best part! Your guests will receive a breathtaking work of art that reflects your love story in the mail. You will receive the extra invitations for keepsake and styling, along with your custom artwork.

INVESTMENT

Save the date design starts at $450 for the design plus

printing of 75 save the dates.

Fully custom invitation design starts at $2,000 for the design plus printing of  75 traditional 3-piece invitation suites (invitation, RSVP card, additional card, outer envelope, and rsvp envelope).

TIMELINE

I recommend inquiring one year prior to your wedding. Custom design clients typically book 12-14 months prior to their wedding for save the dates and 8-10 months prior for wedding invitations.

Since custom invitations involve lots of hand painted artwork, the more time we have to plan and design, the better!

I recommend you mail your save the dates 6-8 months prior to your wedding or 10-12 months prior for destination weddings. I mail all  custom invitations 10-12 weeks before your wedding date. Guests are typically expected to RSVP 3-4 weeks prior to the wedding date. If you choose to mail on your own, we will adjust your timeline accordingly.
