Today’s wedding stationer interview is with Agnes of Blossom Accents, based in Cleveland, OH! Enjoy:
How did you get started doing wedding invitations?
Like some other stationers, I made my own wedding invitations. But it wasn’t till a few years later when I thought it would be awesome and gratifying to sell some of my artwork. I love flowers and they are a big part of weddings. So one idea led to another and Blossom Accents-Artistic and Handmade Floral Stationery took off in 2008. I feel so happy to know there are people out there that appreciate and love what I create.

What is your favorite color combination?
I am a big fan of vivid color. So anything that is a vibrant color combination is definitely on my favorite list.
What is the most unique invitation you have designed?
I believe all the invitations in my portfolio are unique because they have original artworks I drew myself. Many brides ask for a certain flower type they would like on their wedding invitation and I do my best to create something different and yet beautiful.
Do you have a favorite typeface?
This tends to change a lot, but at this current time it’s Baskerville Italic- it’s simple and elegant.
What is the most bizarre request you have received?
A woman contacted me once to see if I would email her one of my images so she could get a tattoo of that artwork on her body-the cherry blossom design in my portfolio to be exact. I thought that was fantastic! Of course I gave her that image!
Ampersand or the word “and?”
I use both but I tend to use “and” more frequently.
Any advice for brides?
Stay true to yourself and your own personal style. Don’t follow the crowd. Most of all have fun and enjoy this awesome time in your life. Relax and don’t stress out, just breathe and take it all in because once that big day comes, it goes by so fast!
Do you offer more than just stationery?
Yes, I’ve made stationery for other occasions such as Christenings, Bat Mitzvahs, Baby Showers, Wedding Showers, Birthdays, and a few other occasions. So, always ask because stationers are usually very open to new things and ideas.
