Congrats - YOU'RE ENGAGED!! It’s finally time to get this wedding invitation party started! I can't wait to hear all about the pretty little details you've been dreaming up for your big day (because let's be honest, you've been planning pre-engagement... hellooo and thank you Pinterest!)
This is the fun part guys!! Let me tell you what - I am jealous of you. Why you ask? Because wedding planning was THE 👏 BEST 👏 PART 👏! Sure, there were stressful moments while wedding planning, but what I found to be the best part of the process was being able to find little ways I could surprise and wow my guests. Enter: Wedding Invitations.
Every wedding invitation I design starts from inspo about what makes you guys, you! The unique part about my offering is you can get whatever you want drawn! If you want your favorite flower on the details card and a crest on the main card- done! Dog can't make it to the wedding? That's what you think! How about that heart eyes venue you just booked? I’ll be there! (Jk – just checking if you were paying attention). The price for subject matter is all the same, no up charging for a specific design. I like to keep it easy peasy :) All of my work is custom drawn in my signature marker illustration style and is 100% unique to your suite. No two designs are the exact same.
JesMarried brides can expect to spend around $1,500 for 100 custom illustrated invitation suites (invitation + envelopes, RSVP card + envelopes and details card). This includes any type of illustration your heart desires on the invites. Your invitations will be printed on a beautiful 120lb luxe white eggshell paper unless we discuss otherwise. Pricing will vary depending on quantity and additional pieces added on such as save the dates, envelope liners, maps, wax seals and any extras you can't live without! The below questionnaire is how we'll get started. Once I receive your info, I'll be able to send over a quote specific to your #weddinggoals! Please let me know if you have any questions while filling out the questionaire. I can’t wait to learn more about you and your wedding vision!
Inquiry & Quote
During this important first step, you’ll be filling out a quick questionnaire for me so I can whip up a free quote tailored to your needs. This questionnaire really helps me get a sense of who you and your fiancé are and what you guys are interested in as far as wedding invitations go. Once I receive your form, I will evaluate it and put together your quote. If you are happy with this quote, you can directly sign the contract from this form and pay your 50% non-refundable retainer and we'll get this wedding planning party started!
Couples Questionnaire and Lookbook
You're officially a #JesMarriedBride 🙌🏼 I will now send over another quick questionnaire to get to know you guys on a more personal level. This will do a deep dive into the look and feel of what you’re interested in having designed. Once I get all that info, I will put together a custom tailored lookbook experience and designer sketch for you to review. This will be my suggestion of what I feel works best based on what you mentioned in your questionnaire!
Illustrations and proofing
Your designer sketch and lookbook is approved and now the fun begins! I will take the approved ideas back and begin the designing/drawing phase. You will receive three rounds of revisions, before there will be an additional fee added to your final invoice, but I bet we can get it done in three or less :)
Approval and Printing
Once I have your final invitation suite designed, I will send you your final design print release. This includes all final designed pieces. You will be checking for spelling errors and date errors! This will be your last chance before it is sent to the printer. You’ll sign the release and I'll send to the printer.
Assembly, Final Invoice and Mailing
If you have decided you’d rather have date night instead of assembly night, I got you! I can (and would love to!) assemble all of your invitation suites and mail them for you! I’ll even mail one to you so you can experience the same exciting moment all of your guests are experiencing! If you want to do the assembly and mailing yourself, I will mail the invites to you. Before anything is shipped or mailed, your final invoice must be paid in full. Your final invoice will include any additional costs that were added on (ie: you decided to add on a map design) and any stamp/postage fees. I will send your final invoice to you once I have received the work from the printer, and if applicable, weighed your suite and you have signed my usps mailing agreement.
Phew! Sounds like a lot but it’s really a simple, straightforward, enjoyable process for you! I'm looking forward to working with you!
