Frances and Ralph were such a fun couple to work with! Frances came to me over a year before her wedding, and was honestly one of the most organized people I have ever worked with - she had a vision, and I was so excited to help her realize it.
Custom wedding stationery is a special process! We try to make it as fun and easy for our clients as possible, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a lot of time and thought that goes into your invitation suite.
We tell our clients to expect the custom process to take anywhere from 8-12 weeks - and it could go even longer, depending on what you order. It seems like a long time, but good things come to those who wait. We build a lot of extra time into our timeline for a couple reasons. The first is that a lot of what we do is dependent on our client’s response times and availability - we don’t want you to feel stressed if you’re totally slammed one week and need to reschedule a meeting, or forget to get back to us. On the up side if you are responsive, we often wrap up faster than estimated. We never hold onto your invitations longer than we need to, just to stick to a timeline. The second reason is because we don’t often source our supplies locally, so halfway through the process we need to take a break for your supplies to actually get to us. But you’ll learn all about that below.
