How long does the process take?
Custom Invitations: This process typically takes about three to four months for complete design and printing; however, I prefer to book clients 6-9 months out from their wedding day to make sure nothing is rushed! I do accept rush jobs as my schedule allows.
Calligraphy: I reserve two-three full weeks for most envelope orders to account for time to address envelopes, check, make corrections and double check; however, it largely depends on the size of your order.
Can you do wedding programs, menus, koozies, cups, seating charts, cake toppers, etc?
Yes, yes, yes, please! Birdie Mae Designs is a one-stop shop for all of your wedding needs. Not only does that seriously narrow down your vendor list (it's hectic to keep track of everyone!) but it also ensures that your wedding has a cohesive look from your invitations to your table numbers to your napkins. Another bonus? With years of design and event planning experience, I have a list of vendors that I know and trust - preventing you from being disappointed by a shady online website's products. You can see a lot of the details we've provided other full-service brides on our Wedding Day Details. Looking for something you don't see? Let me know! Chances are, I can find it or figure it out!
What is the investment?
Invitations have so many variables (paper, items, print method, quantity, etc) that it makes this question near impossible to answer. But, the good thing about having so many options is that there's a good chance we can customize a quote to fit within whatever budget you have. Head over here and fill out this form with as much information as you know, we can chat about further details and I'll provide a free quote! Or, you can download our price guide!
When should I mail my invitations and save the dates?
Standard etiquette suggests mailing save the dates out 4-6 months before the wedding and invitations out 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding. I set my timeline to get everything to you at least a week ahead of time to allow time for postage and mailing.
Do you offer design services for things other than wedding invitations?
Sure do! From save the dates to rehearsal dinner invitations, baby showers to small business branding, I love to put my design skills to good use outside of wedding invitations!
