If you're a Fall or Winter 2018 bride, summertime is the perfect time to start planning out your wedding invitations. Invitations are obviously a giant piece of the wedding process, so let's get the process started sooner, rather than later.
No one wants to be paying rush printing fees, or scrambling for prettier stamps than the standard options at your local post office. Right?? ;-)
We have a small handful of spots left on our production schedule for the latter part of 2018. We have price points for wedding budgets of all shapes and sizes - let's get together for a cup of coffee and see what we can do for your big day!

Have you caught on to the latest trend in wedding stationery?
It's custom vow books!
These pretty little booklets are the perfect spot to keep your vows written, so you don't misplace them before the ceremony. Not only that, they are such great keepsakes AND make for the prettiest details shots!
Indianapolis Wedding Invitations
These can be customized with fonts and colors to coordinate with your big day, and are often personalized with your names and wedding date. If you're ordering custom stationery from us, we recommend ordering these alongside your invitations. That way, you'll have plenty of time to complete them pre-ceremony. ;-)

I'm going to step down from my wedding paper soapbox, and put on a different hat for a second. I've been part of the Indianapolis wedding scene since 2009. I've seen it all, brides. And I'll tell you one piece of advice that is applicable to all shapes and styles of weddings.
Hire a planner!

Whether it's a full service planning package or a "month of" service, you will thank yourself later. Ten fold.
(Quick note: Don't confuse a "wedding planner" with "venue coordinator." The latter is a great resource, but keep in mind that they work for the venue, not you! Hiring a planner with your best interest in mind is key.)
A wedding planner will help you with ALL THE THINGS! Here's a snippet....
    Every great planner has excellent go-to vendors for brides of every price point. If they don't, they haven't done their research & you need to find one that has.
    From vendor deadlines, to wedding invitation mailing dates, to the wedding day timeline, your planner has perfected her organizational skills and will make sure everything runs smoothly. Keeping your stress level way down & allowing you to savor the more important moments.
    You have a vision, but we all know making big wedding decisions can be stressful! Your planner will take your vision and advise on what details will work best, as well as be honest on what will not. Pick her brain! This isn't her first go-round. ;-)
If you're on the fence about hiring a planner, I hope you'll consider hiring one! They are worth their weight in gold. This is your big day, and this is one small investment that you'll be forever happy you made.

Wondering what life is like for a busy mom with a graphic design & laser cutting business? My days are filled with pretty paper, blissful brides, half-finished sketchbooks, half-eaten lunches, and lots of cuddling with my little ones. I look forward to sharing with you all of life's fun happenings (both in & out of the studio) here on the blog!
