Why Hire a Stationery Designer for my Wedding?

Wedding invitations are arguably one of the most important parts of your wedding planning process.

When it comes down to it, this envelope full of art and details tells your friends & family everything they need to know to get excited about your very special day. Working with a stationery designer will elevate what ends up in the hands of your guests and take a lot of the stress out of the planning experience for you.

You have several options when choosing an invitation. As a professional stationery designer, I love to hear my clients say, “That was so much easier than I thought it would be!” I really want you to end up with an invitation design that is as unique as your wedding. I will take the time to learn about you and your partner and make sure I create a heartfelt, custom invitation suite that will leave you with goosebumps.

There are a few things to consider when hiring a stationery designer. The first is your budget. A stationery designer can range in price from $1,000 to over $30,000, depending on their experience and the complexity of the project.

The second thing to consider is your time frame. It generally takes 8-10 weeks to consult, ideate, design, and print invitations. If you are looking for a quick turnaround, a custom stationery designer may accommodate if the schedule allows, but we prefer to have more time to spend on research and really creating a thoughtful and intentional design.

Finally, think about the overall style and tone of your wedding vision and your personal style as a couple. Do you want something more formal? Casual? Modern? Traditional? Your stationery should reflect the overall style of your wedding day so it’s important to find a designer who “gets” your vision and can execute it flawlessly.

If you take all of these things into consideration, I think you’ll find that working with a professional stationery designer is worth every penny!

Here are the top 3 reasons my clients hired me:

  1. To save time and stress in the wedding planning process. Many of my clients hire me to take care of everything for all stages of the wedding planning process; save the dates, sealing and sending the save the dates and invitations, guest address printing or calligraphy, wedding signage, hotel guest bags, and after party details. If you want to have all of your pieces coordinate every step of the way, I’m here for you!

  2. To create a custom suite of invitations that reflect the overall style and tone of their wedding day & what represents them as a couple. Including personal artwork, hobbies, pets, etc. into different places in the wedding designs is my specialty.

  3. To create a unique, one-of-a-kind suite that would make a great first impression with their guests. I want your pieces to make a statement! I never underestimate the presence of texture in an invitation suite and the impact that has on your guests and their impression of your day.
