As a bride or groom, you have so much to think about in preparation for one of the biggest days of your life. Planning a wedding can be stressful, as I discovered firsthand during my own experience, but when it comes to your invites, working with a wedding invitation designer will allow you to enjoy the stationery process! Why hire a stationery designer as opposed to ordering wedding invitations online or taking a DIY approach?
1. Every wedding day is as unique as the bride and groom—your invitations should reflect your personality and wedding vision!
Because couples spend so much time contemplating each wedding detail, from the color scheme to the flowers to the reception hall lighting, these elements should be flawlessly incorporated into wedding stationery. A professional wedding invitation designer is able to develop a stylized wedding suite exclusive to each couple that encompasses the important details the couple has painstakingly chosen. Websites simply do not offer the quality of personalization or customer service that a stationery designer provides. Professional designers are able to expertly combine typography, colors, graphic elements such as monograms, paper quality, and the proper wording to create a stunning wedding suite that perfectly matches your wedding vision.
2. Wedding invitations set the tone for your entire event, and become a keepsake for people to remember the day.
Wedding invitations are the first tangible glimpse into your wedding day that guests experience. Why not impress them and make them excited to attend your big event? Wedding invitations should be a work of art. When guests feel the hand-selected paper and marvel over intricate or quirky detailing, they are sure to mark your date on their calendars as one they cannot miss and save the invitation in a special place.
3. Professional designers are experts when it comes to organization.
A professional designer is accustomed to meeting clients’ needs within a strict deadline. We also know exactly what information MUST be included on an invitation (dates, time, location, etc.) The last thing you want is to muddle through designing your own invitations and realize after you’ve sent them out that you forgot to include your wedding date! (This actually happens!) Additionally, we know all of the pieces that should be incorporated into a wedding suite, and we can design all of them for you. Websites such as Shutterfly, Zazzle, and Minted, sometimes leave holes in your wedding suite, such as lack of a “guest information card” design, so you are left to DIY something that doesn’t quite match the rest of the stationery. Not to mention, these websites may charge ridiculous amounts for simple pieces. Professional stationery designers will help you avoid disaster, keep things moving smoothly to ensure the invites are ready on time, and focus on ALL of the pieces of your wedding suite, so you can focus on other aspects of wedding planning—like cake tasting!
4. Creativity comes easily to professional designers.
I have had several brides tell me that making design-related decisions on their own stresses them out, and they end up frustrated with the invitation designs they attempt to create, even with the help of a website template. If you decide to hire a professional wedding designer, rest assured that your wedding suite is in very capable hands, and we love what we do! I promise my passion for designing wedding stationery will be evident throughout the entire process, should you decide to work with me, and I strive to make it a positive experience for all of my wedding clients!
