5 Reasons To Always Hire a Wedding Invitation Designer

custom wedding invitation

The custom stationery design is a collaborative process that elevates wedding invitations to a new height. A must for discerning clientele. Expect luxurious papers, sumptuous fabrics, and extraordinary embellishments.  The run-of-the-mill becomes a stunning keepsake. Make an impact and an unforgettable first impression.

Seek and find a professional designer to ensure that your wedding invitations will trigger an emotional response from the recipients. Hire the best,  a full-service artisan who will capture your vision and create a unique personal brand. Now is the time for the ultimate in creativity, attention to details, and extraordinary personal service. For the most part, there are some hard and fast rules dealing with formal invitations. Your personal designer/consultant is current on the fine points of etiquette.

Before The Wedding, make an impactful statement from the get-go. Invitations and save-the-date announcements fashioned from luxurious high-end premium cotton paper resonate the ultimate in luxury. The soft textured feel is astounding, adding dimension and visual interest. And after your engagement session with me, it is always fun to add a photo wedding invite to your full suite, instead of simply text! A designer will coordinate all of your printed material and paper goods for a highly customizable high-end look. And as an extra bonus, if you choose one of my favorite invitation designer companies, they often have wedding website designs that can actually match the custom look of your invitation and wedding style!

Be it letter-pressed or embossed, gilded in gold or laser cut, your design will rival any royal classy wedding invitation. Expect nothing less than awe-inspiring. While customary elements such as date, time and location are a given, your consultant will help you choose between traditional or contemporary wording. Suggestions for additions such as monogrammed envelope liners, belly-bands, and wording for accommodations are all part and parcel of the designer’s services.

Don’t be surprised if “hand-canceling” the envelopes or mailing packets,  is part of the overall design plan. With so much time and effort involved in the creation, it would be a shame to have a postal-service cancellation stamp obliterate or obscure beautiful calligraphy.

Think of the invitation as a personal creation – a work of art. Using custom shapes and fabrics, combined with hand-selected embellishments, a designer brings a wealth of industry knowledge to the table. This melange of inspiration, wedding etiquette and artistry will make guests sit up and take notice. The design and theme become your personal brand. A look and a feeling that you and your intended develop together. A signature,  or symbol, so to speak, of two becoming one.

“Ever thine, ever mine, ever ours.”– Ludwig van Beethoven

During the Festivities, your high-end look is carried over and prevalent on table number cards, menus, programs, cocktail napkins and place cards. Whether you favor the vintage, rustic, modern, or traditional ambiance, customized design is the only way to go.

After the Vows are spoken,  thank-you cards and announcements are an important part of the printed “suite” of options available to today’s savvy bride. Don’t forget that custom journals, diaries, stamps, and embossers carry your imprint well into life beyond the wedding day.

Life Goes On.  As your beginning becomes a journey, incorporate your “brand” on a custom monogram and name stamps,  change-of-address notices and even birth announcements. Keep a roll of personalized postage stamps for those time when only a handwritten note will do.

Each detail of your wedding is important. A professional designer is a valuable resource. Their profession mandates they remain singularly focused on current trends and etiquette. Ask them about hand-drawn maps, accommodations information, and wedding website designs.


A seasoned, wedding invitation consultant has exactly what you need:

  • Time to focus on details
  • Knowledge, creativity, and professionalism.
