the custom invitation design process
My invitation suites are created from scratch for every couple. The design process starts by getting to know you and your wedding style so that I can create the perfect invitation suite for the two of you. By combining my original illustrations, modern typography, and a bold sense of design, I’ll bring your invitations to life. Want all the juicy details about each step of the process? Take a peek below.
Get in touch by filling out my questionnaire, so I can learn all about your stationery needs and wedding day style. From there, I’ll create a custom proposal tailored just for you. You can ask me any invitation questions you have via phone or an in-person consult. Once we are ready to get into the design, I’ll send over a fun little form that will help me craft an invitation that is perfectly you!
I’ll create a mood board based on your wedding day vibe, and stationery dreams, to make sure we are all in sync. Then I’ll create at least two unique sketches of your soon-to-be invitation suite. You’ll both choose which design makes your hearts the happiest and give your feedback before I start the final illustrations & design.
Based on the pencil sketch, I’ll bring your invitation design to life with the perfect color palette, truly original illustrations and amazing typography. You’ll have an additional chance to make some tweaks so that your suite is absolutely perfect! Then the real magic happens!
Once you’ve approved your final design proof, your invitation suite will go to print. Some pieces are produced right here in my studio, while others are printed by a range of fabulous craftspeople and friends. Your suite can be delivered for you to assemble, or I can take care of stamping and mailing on your behalf.
It doesn’t stop there! I’ll take inspiration from your invitation to create all the beautiful details that make your wedding day truly unique. Welcome signs, menus, place cards, favors, programs, napkins.... if you can dream it, I can bring it to life! I want to make your day genuinely represent your love. You deserve to start your lives together in style.
When to Order Your Invitations
Custom design and illustration takes time. I recommend getting in touch 6-8 months before your wedding to allow ample time for the design and printing of your invitations. Inquiries can be made 12-18 months in advance. Kindly reach out as soon as possible, as I take on a limited number of clients each season.
custom invitations for creative couples
I adore couples who march to the beat of their own saxophone, whose personalities shine through in everything they do, and who are just as excited about Taco Tuesday as they are about each other. (I mean, who isn’t excited about tacos!) Ready to create an amazing invitation?
