What should I expect during our first consultation?
Prior to your consultation, please fill out and return the Event Details form that was emailed to you with your appointment confirmation. We must receive this form no less than 24 hours prior to your scheduled call/appointment, otherwise we will need to reschedule your consultation.
During your scheduled appointment, you will talk with one of our designers to discuss the pertinent information regarding your event. A costing proposal for Collection items will be prepared for you within 3-4 business days; Bespoke work will receive an estimated range of cost within 5-7 business days (it is impossible to quote an exact cost for Bespoke until the final design is confirmed).
How much will the invitations cost?
We find that most of our clients will spend between 7-12% of their total budget on stationery (yes, we know, the wedding websites allocate a lower percentage!).
The amount of money you spend is directly correlated to the following factors:
