Today’s post is by the fabulously wonderful Sarah from Hip Ink, one of my first WeddingInviteLove friends to meet in person. She runs The Invitation Blog, a hilarious and informative blog about invitations, etiquette, and advice, and I’m so happy she donated a post to us today!
Have you ever had that feeling? You know the one. The one you get after looking at page after page (after page…) of wedding invitation albums, every invite looking more and more alike; each nondescript floral, pearlized dove and stuffy old typeface making you feel like you’ll never find an invitation that “fits”.
Listen to that feeling — it’s wise. That feeling is telling you that those plain-jane, boring, traditional wedding invitations just aren’t your bag, baby. You want something fresh, unique, beautiful and…well…you. And *you* ain’t gonna find it in that invitation album my friends.
Where you *will* find it is on WeddingInviteLove, where you can choose from literally hundreds of custom invitation designers who are ready and willing to take your inspirations, ideas and personalities and make them shine on paper. We’re all about the details — just like you!
I’m guessing when you dreamt of your big day, you probably didn’t dream of having an event just like everyone else’s right? Ever shown up at a party in the same outfit as someone else? Ouch. You want your wedding day to be unique, to reflect you as a couple, to be once in a lifetime, just for you. So why invite your family and friends to share that with you by sending them an invite you picked up in bulk at Wedding-Save-O-Rama?
Why else should you consider a custom invitation designer?
Have an out-of-the-ordinary event? A destination wedding, a wedding weekend, a full-on three-day blow-out? Different cultures, different languages, different ceremonies and customs? An amazing theme? A spectacular location? All great reasons to hire someone who can create an invitation that will communicate everything you need to your guests, and do it with impeccable style.
Officially lost when it comes to etiquette? Mailing times? Who to send what, where and when, how and why? Confusing I know – but relax, and take a deep breath, because you have an expert on the job. A custom invitation designer is a fantastic resource and can help take the stress out of the process for you with all the timely tips and advice you need.
You can bet that the level of attention and service you’ll get from a custom designer is something that those big invitation companies could never even dream of offering. We’re here to get to know you, to care about what matters to you, to give you an experience that helps to relieve your stress, instead of adding to it. Think [Insert Name of Giant Invitation Retailer] can do that? Didn’t think so.
You care about the details — even the ones you probably shouldn’t care so much about. It’s a one-time thing, and you want it to be perfect. So do we. You want to create an invitation inspired by your grandmother’s family crest — we’re there. You need to match the exact colour of those beautiful orchids in your bouquet — we can do it. You want to re-imagine your matching tattoos as a monogram — we’ve got this. And we’re passionate about making it right.
So yes, hiring a designer is the perfect way to avoid “that feeling” and to ensure that your invitation is the perfect reflection of the reason you crazy kids are doing this thing anyway — your totally one-of-a-kind love.
