Why chose a custom designed wedding invitation suite?
Oh, girl, there are so many reasons! But, I do think it all boils down to time, confidence and quality.
Let me explain…
Time and Confidence
Planning a wedding can be crazy and overwhelming. I get it! With custom design, you’re buying precious time during a busy season. All of my clients receive their suites completely assembled and addressed – they’re ready to apply postage and mail (and I even include directions on how to do that!). On top of that, you can rest assured that every detail of each suite is picture perfect – I triple check every envelope and assemble each suite with love and care. After all, I want to make sure my brides are over-the-moon happy and I would never want something sub-par to represent my work.
Like your wedding planner helps your overall vision come to life, I’m here to help you with every step of your wedding stationery – from the save the dates to the ceremony program. I created this little business to help brides like you create custom designed, thoughtful details and personal connections that will make your wedding invitations and day-of details unforgettable. I still pinch myself that brides let me help design details of such an important day. It’s a responsibility I don’t take lightly. I take on a small group of clients at a time to make sure that each bride receives the individual attention she deserves. Your wedding is a really big deal to you – and it is to me, too!
Think a human hand touches each invitation during printing and inspection when you order from a big-box store? Think again. Though custom designed invitations can fit many budgets, templated options from online retailers can usually undercut little businesses like mine – however, the quality sets the little guys apart from the pack. Not only is each element of the suite designed by hand, but only the highest quality materials are used and each piece of paper is printed by hand. In the case of foil or letterpress, each paper is printed on a custom-made plate on vintage machines that require pages to be fed by hand. Each piece is truly a piece of art. After printing, each piece is thoroughly inspected and any that don’t meet our high standards are discarded. Only the best will do!
Custom design gives you one-on-one time with a designer (that’s me!) to talk about your likes and dislikes, wedding inspiration and the things you and your fiancé hold dear. It’s my job to take that information and create something just.for.you. Wedding invitations set the tone for your wedding day and capture the personalities of you and your fiancé – they help your guests know what to expect and envision your big day. Best of all, when you work with Birdie Mae Designs for your wedding stationery, we can extend your branding throughout your reception. From signs to napkins, programs to thank you cards, we can create personal, cohesive touches for each aspect of your big day!
