Wedding Invitation Consultations

You and your fiancee decide that you'd like to order customer stationery, from a boutique shop. You search the web for a designer you love that's close to you. You send an email and together you book a time to meet. Now you're curious, what will a consultation involve? 

Before we even meet, I send my clients a detailed Questionnaire to get to know them a bit better and get an idea of their needs, so that I can be properly prepared before we sit down together. I'd hate to bring a couple who wants glitter and lace all wood invites with images of woodland creatures. Just a few quick questions tells me a whole lot about the wedding you are planning, and the invitation style I think would work best for you.

While we're together, we brain storm the vision you have for your invitations. You can open up and look at many samples of other couples wedding stationery, you get to see and touch 100's of different papers. We talk about imagery, fonts, colours, layers, addressing, wording, timelines and so on. In just one short hour, I answer all of your questions and you walk away excited about paper and mailing out your invitations.

Wedding Invitation Constulation

Looking to book a consultation? Shoot me an email or give me a call. I'm available Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturdays in Canmore. Book a day to come enjoy the mountains. Can't make it out here? During busy seasons I set aside one Saturday a month to meet clients in Calgary, just email me for availability. 

Amanda + Keith on RockNRoll Bride

I had the pleasure of working with Amanda + Keith on some wedding day stationery for their intimate wedding in Banff. Amanda was really lovely to work with. I create some personalized menus for their guests using a light gold cardstock, and backed with a beautiful deep plum. Always a pleasure to work with Postcard Weddings and Events for their love of colour and style.

“Our wedding was inspired by our flare for tattoos and being our crazy selves”, said the bride. “We wanted something small that reflected our love of being outside and of being different to other people.”
