Your Wedding Invitations

The invitation sets the tone.  How many times have you heard this?  Whether you've heard it once or a thousand times, it's true.  When it's time to announce to the world that you're getting married and request their presence, the invitation lets them know what kind of celebration to expect.  Is it a formal affair, casually laid back, or somewhere in between?  Those days where all invitations were white in color with a colored liner inside the envelope have all but disappeared and people have come up with more creative ways to express their personality while inviting guests to the wedding of their dreams.

Instead of choosing your invitations and wedding day stationery from a catalog, it's so much more personal to have a face-to-face consultation to discuss the vision you may have for your wedding with someone like the very talented Valerie of 1420 DeZigns.  You get the chance to play with color combinations, see various paper styles and types, see what might work, and make adjustments to those things that might not work so well.  You get to customize something that will give your guests a little peek into the wedding that is to come and have them eager with anticipation.

Customized does not always mean more expensive.  There are options to fit every budget.  Your guests get to see an invitations that's uniquely yours vs. one they may have seen a dozen times before.   Add ribbon, add sparkle, or incorporate your favorite fabric.  The thing to remember is that having a hands on approach allows you to create something that's one of a kind and totally you!
