Are you wondering how the bespoke process works?
This post is based on the invitation process for one of the awesome couples I got to work with, Sheresa and Jack.
1. Design brief
If you have an idea in your head about what you like, feel free to spam my inbox with pictures and words!
I will also ask you to fill in a questionnaire (which you can peek at here) to give me a better idea of the design direction.
Here's a snippet of Sheresa's responses:
I'll take your ideas and responses and create a moodboard to see if we're on the same page.
From Sheresa's responses and ideas I got the following keywords:
Her wedding colour palette was ivory, gold and navy which I incorporated into my moodboard.
This is the stage where I put all the ideas and pictures together to come up with concepts.
A. CONCEPT: I will deliver up to 3 initial concepts of the main invitation to you (this could vary depending on the scope of the project). From here we choose a direction to go in and then I'll design the other items you require.
B. DEVELOPMENT: You offer your input and suggestions and I'll make the changes accordingly. This is usually the longest part of the design process as there will be a lot of correspondence and revisions.
C. REFINEMENT: This stage is for minor tweaks before sending off to the printers. Once you're happy with everything and I've got your approval, I will organise the printing and finishing of the invitations. If you are printing the invitations yourself, I will prepare all the necessary files for you.
Sheresa and Jack opted to go for a custom monogram and paper band for their invitation set.
It's that simple! Are you ready to get designing on your perfect wedding invitation suite? Contact me here if you are! :)
The following is a guide on the standard stationery you can order for your wedding.
I've broken it up into two categories: (1) Pre-wedding and (2) On-the-day
Most of these are optional - it's best to check with your wedding coordinator if they provide the on-the-day stationery.
Here's the 6 simple steps of having your wedding stationery specially designed by us:

SAVE THE DATE
Once you have a wedding date and venue booked, it’s recommended that you notify your guests asap. This can either be electronically or with a printed card. For destination weddings that involve travel, there should be at least 12 months notice.
4-6 months ahead
FORMAL WEDDING INVITATION
The process of getting invitations custom designed and printed can be a lengthy process. It’s best to order your invitations at least 6 months prior and aim to send them out 4 months before the wedding. This is why a save the date is encouraged.
1-2 months ahead
Once you have finalised the guest list and wedding details, we can begin designing the additional items such as place cards, seating charts, menus, order of service and signage. Please remember to allow ample time for printing and shipping.
