Today’s wedding stationer interview features Inspirations by Amie Lee, an Ormond Beach, Florida stationer! Thanks for interviewing with us today.
How did you get started doing wedding invitations?
I was inspired by my own wedding creations and designs for our invitations and additional accessories. I enjoyed seeing the smiles of my guests as they discovered their invitations, gift and tags. I was encouraged tremendously by family, friends, my wedding planner and my photographer to start this business. So I did it! I left the world of teaching to start my own invitation business and haven’t looked back. I can honestly say now that I love what I do and do what I love! I have accomplished my dream to make people smile and enjoy a part of their life that is so truly special. This has been a dream come true!

What is your favorite color combination?
This is probably the toughest question I have ever been asked since I LOVE color! Anything that “pops” and is delicious to the eye, such as; yellow and navy, browns and greens, or even golds and pinks…ok it’s tough to get me to settle on just one.
What is the most unique invitation you have designed?
Again, tough because each one is so unique to the couple. I enjoy adding little details where ever possible to truly personalize. One of my favorites was including a nautical chart of the area and adding some “bling” to the wedding location. Both bride and groom were avid boaters so it was extra fun and personal.
Do you have a favorite typeface?
I find this typically changes with the wedding style I am working with, but currently I love “feel script” and anything large and “loopy!”
What is the most bizarre request you have received?
To send a graphic for a tattoo!
Ampersand or the word “and?”
I love the ampersand!
Any advice for brides?
Don’t get too hung up on all the “little rules” for invitations. Have fun, relax and enjoy the process! It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to send something special to your family and friends that represents you as a couple.
Do you offer more than just stationery?
Yes! I love creating unique gifts such as decorative calendars, signs and favors for parties and weddings.
