Today’s stationer interview is with Rachelyn of Pocadot Invitations, based in Sydney, Australia! Enjoy:
How did you get started doing wedding invitations?
Being a professional graphic designer and designing my own invitations for my wedding was how I discovered my passion for wedding invitations. After my wedding was over, I have never really stopped obsessing over weddings and am loving the fact that I get to help so many brides with their invitations for such an important day in their life.

What is your favorite color combination?
My favourite colour combination would have to be red and white! I am obsessed about the colour red, but believe it or not it is actually one of the hardest colours to use when trying to achieve a striking elegant look and not fall into mere tackiness.
What is the most unique invitation you have designed?
I actually had to take a moment to think about this. All my invitations are unique as they are custom designs, but I love it when a bride thinks outside the square and requests a personalised wax stamp or a specific style and material for their invite and is really involved in the whole process!
Do you have a favorite typeface?
I am a sucker for flourish and swirly fonts. And I am in love with the font Parfumerie Script! It is just exceptionally beautiful.
What is the most bizarre request you have received?
So far I must say everything has been pretty straightforward. But I am definitely looking forward to it.
Ampersand or the word “and?”
Both. Ampersands are lovely when used correctly and accentuated. “and” on the other hand is always more formal and immediately sets a serious tone to any design.
Any advice for brides?
Always remember that your invitation is the first thing your guests see as a preview of your wedding day. So it is so very important to give them the best first impression with a personal and uniquely design invitation that portrays your personality and theme to perfection.
Do you offer more than just stationery?
Since it is a particularly new company at the moment, I am just focusing all my attention on invitations and photobooks. In saying that, I am looking at offering e-invites and bonbonieres in the near future to match my invitations, as a whole package for my brides.
