Rosalind Wong comes to us all the way from Australia! All of her designs have a nice added touch of detail, I just love them all. Thanks so much Rosalind, we are glad to have you a part of WeddingInviteLove!
1. How did you get started doing wedding invitations?
While I was studying design at university, I worked at a paper and invitations store. From there, I started designing my own wedding stationery.

2. What is your favorite color combination?
At the moment, I like pairing blues with browns; however I normally don’t have a favourite as such. I enjoy experimenting with different colour ways and seeing what kind of look and feel they create.
3. What is the most unique invitation you have designed?
I believe my ‘St Kilda’ invitation design is quite unique as this was designed to try and push the boundaries. Normally, weddings have a colour scheme which stationery usually gets matched in with. However, ‘St Kilda’ works on having ‘brights’ as a theme, where it’s about the intensity and vividness which is the cohesive thread between the stationery items, rather than an exact combination of colours.
4. Do you have a favorite typeface?
With an extensive typeface library, it always changes. However, with this said, I like the old world feel of serif fonts.
5. What is the most bizarre request you have received?
I once printed small, individual readings for a wedding ceremony in the same style and design as the wedding invitations. I thought it was a lovely touch and great attention to detail, however I did think that only one person, the reader, would actually see it. Hopefully they appreciated it though. I would probably classify this as an unusual request rather than bizarre.
6. Ampersand or the word “and?”
In the right font, I love the form of the ampersand sign. I even designed a whole invitation set based on the ampersand.
7. Any advice for brides?
My main advice is to work out a timeline and stay organised. There are many aspects to organising a wedding and stationery is only one part. With wedding invitations, I generally suggest starting the process 3-4 months prior to the big day.
8. Do you offer more than just stationery?
Besides event stationery, I offer general graphic design and business branding services as well as other paper related accessories, such as paper embossers.
