When collaborating on a custom invitation project, the design is founded upon and inspired by your love story – unique materials are carefully sourced to translate that story to paper. Suggestions and guidance will be offered based on your aesthetic, project scope, and budget. Whether you're looking for something simple or an over the top invitation, I'll make sure you receive something truly special. 


Together let's create a beautiful paper keepsake you can treasure for years to come!


1 – discovery

Let's start with a comprehensive questionnaire to collect the basics. Once your details are received, if the timeline aligns with my calendar and current work load, we'll schedule a 30 minute discovery phone call to discuss the details, project scope, and to ensure we are a good fit. 

2 – proposal

If we have determined that we will be a good fit, a personalized proposal will be assembled based on the design aesthetics and vision for the project.

3 – reservation

Finalize your booking and secure your spot in my design calendar by accepting the quote. Upon acceptance you will be prompted to complete the contract and pay the 50% non-refundable retainer.

4 – client portal

You are officially a Blonde & Brindle Bride! You will be supplied with a customized timeline that outlines important dates to help ensure a timely delivery. Your client portal will be prepared – This is the main hub where all proofing will take place throughout the design process. In the next steps, I will supply you with wording examples, proper etiquette, spreadsheets for addresses, and content forms to collect all necessary details to roll into the design.

5 – design process

We'll start with a mood board that includes a color palette, inspiration images, and overall design direction – this will be the heart behind the design. You'll be presented with a couple design concepts and together we'll work through the details and refine the design until perfected.

6 – production

Upon your approval of the design, your balance will be due. Payment of the balance will send your stationery into production. Once I receive your stationery from my trusted production partners, each individual piece will undergo thorough inspection to rule out any blemishes. Assembly and packaging of your suites will be diligently and carefully executed  to ensure a flawless presentation.

7 – delivery

Once the final invitation is inspected for superior quality, your invitations will be packaged and weighed for shipping or brought to the Post office to be mailed to your guests if you opt into the mailing service for a hands-off, stress-free, experience.

A final shipping invoice will be issued based on the weight of the completed order. Payment of the final shipping invoice will release your order.
