When you start researching wedding stationery, you may hear all sorts of terms, one of them being that you need to choose your “stationery suite,” which is just a fancy way to say the collection of coordinated paper products used for a wedding.
How soon you should choose depends on the date of your wedding, but a good rule of thumb is a year out from your wedding date. This allows us ample time to get to know each other, so I really understand your likes and dislikes, make suggestions on what you need, and work through the design process. It also ensures we have plenty of time to get things from suppliers, avoiding rush fees and allowing plenty of time to avoid the dreaded “supply chain issues.”
A wedding stationery suite is so much more than your invitations! Save-the-date cards, signage, programs, menus, event cards, place cards, thank-you cards, and more, make up your stationery suite. Everything is designed to match and complement each other in terms of style, color, and typography.
A well-designed stationery suite creates a sense of anticipation and excitement for your big day, for you and your guests, and provides a cohesive, consistent look and feel.
Your suite should be beautifully designed and crafted, with attention paid to every detail, from the paper's color and texture to the embellishments you choose to make it stand out. This makes the invitation a work of art in its own right and something worth keeping and treasuring.
Maybe! Or maybe not. That’s exactly why I don’t do traditional wedding stationery suite packages. There’s no “wedding in a box” around here. We work together and talk through what you might need for your wedding and, most importantly, what matters most to you.
No matter what you choose, there’s no separate design fee and unlimited revisions. The minimum investment for custom wedding stationery from Beach City Creative is $1000.
No Cookie-Cutter Packages.
No Separate Design Fees.
No Assembly Fee.
That’s the Beach City Creative Way to Do Wedding Invitations.
It’s a virtual world, and I serve clients Nationwide. However, I’d love to meet you in person if you're local to Orange County. We discuss the details, look at samples and begin your design process. Hooray!
I start with the Save the Dates and Invitations, creating multiple design choices that coordinate with your wedding aesthetic, color palette, and style preferences. I take into account everything we’ve talked about, sprinkle in a little design magic and create a truly customized design.
Once your design is approved, it’s time to get excited because this is where it gets real! You’ll get a box with samples that you can lay your hands on. These printed proofs will be on various types of paper and will have samples of embellishments or add-on items (things like wax seals, ribbons, envelopes, and pockets). Once you make your selections, the rest of your suite will be created to match.
It’s time to make the magic happen! Your suite goes to print, and I take care of all of the assembly. Everything that is delivered to you is *chef’s kiss* perfect and ready to go. All you have to do is seal the envelopes, add a little love and some postage, and they are ready to mail.
Once your invitations are in the mail, we’ll start designing your day-of stationery pieces. As your RSVPs roll in and you have your last meetings with your vendors to confirm all the details, we’ll finalize quantities and formatting. A quick turnaround on production, and you’ll have everything ready for the big day!
