You’re probably here because you’re wondering why custom wedding invitations come with a higher price tag. I also have a hunch you’re someone who appreciates the artistry and uniqueness that custom stationery brings to your special day. If you’ve never tackled wedding planning before, the world of custom wedding stationery can seem like a vast and bewildering place. But fear not, my friend, because you’ve come to the right spot. In this blog, I’ll take you on a journey through the realm of custom wedding invitations, delving into their beauty, significance, and the reasons behind their price.
Imagine stepping into David’s Bridal and stumbling upon an off-the-rack wedding dress that fits your budget and looks decent on you. However, there’s something missing—it doesn’t make you feel truly beautiful. You also get a sense of déjà vu, realizing that your best friend’s cousin wore a very similar dress at her wedding.
Now, picture yourself entering a designer showroom. You gracefully slide into the ballgown of your dreams, and it’s a perfect match. It resonates with the vision of your garden mansion wedding venue that you’ve cherished for so long. Suddenly, it embodies your personality and harmonizes flawlessly with your wedding aesthetic.
Custom wedding invitations operate in much the same way. You could opt for the generic, run-of-the-mill online wedding invitations you’ve come across countless times, or you can invest in something tailor-made just for you. These invitations will complement all the other intricate details of your wedding and give your guests a tantalizing glimpse of what they can expect on your big day.
Why are Custom Wedding Invitations so Expensive?
Custom wedding invitations may seem deceptively simple, often perceived as just a small 5″ x 7″ piece of paper. But did you know that custom invitations are both a product and a service?
Are Custom Wedding Invitations Worth It?
Ah, yes! When you bring onboard individuals who are passionate about serving couples and crafting something uniquely special for them, the results always surpass the generic invitations from a faceless website.
- You’re investing in a small business: All my life I’ve been the coach’s wife or my children’s mom. Now it’s time for me to build something I can be proud of. That I can show my children that it’s never too late to start something. My husband cheers me on every time I get an inquiry. I’m truly touched when an engaged couple selects me to design their wedding invitations among countless other talented stationers. It means the world to me.
- Quality Matters: As I’ve said before, you are no generic bride and neither are your invitations. When you invest in handmade paper, letterpress printing, custom wax seals, and calligraphy envelopes, each of those elements is handmade and hand-produced. And because of that, it’s like a little bit of the artist’s soul is represented in each invitation. You can’t get that from a mass-produced design, where you’re just another order.
- You’re working with a real person who cares: You have an etiquette question, I’ll answer it. You have special circumstances, I’ll guide you through them. Don’t have any time or desire to address and mail your invitations, I’ve got you covered. Nothing is more important to me than helping you have a stress-free, enjoyable process, where it’s fun to plan a wedding!
