The Tailored Collection is a varying suite of invitations that I have designed in order to make life easy for you whilst at the same time, still being unique to you. At the moment, there are 5 very different designs, thus hopefully there is at least one that catches your eye.
I get asked lots of questions about The Tailored Collection, so I thought I would try and answer the most frequent ones in this blog post!
Think of these invitations as starting points. The colours, wording and paper stocks used are all changeable and this is how you make the design bespoke to you. This is a service in which I provide that is complimentary when ordering from this collection... If however, you wanted to add an element in, like a motif, a building, an illustration, etc, extra design charges are applicable (and it just depends upon what you want adding).
Other embellishments that you might want to add into your design / final invitations:
- Twine & tags
- Matching belly bands
- Matching envelope liners
- Bespoke stickers
- Bespoke Wax stamp
- Printed personalised names on your invitations
How to place an order:
This is dead easy but it's not computerised (which would take away from the personal service that I pride myself on). All you have to do is fill out a form on the Contact page and I will get back to you within 24 working hours. Once we have had a discussion about your invitations and you have sent me the wording that you require, I will create a digital proof and send it back to you for your approval. Once you are totally happy, payment is made and production begins.
The usual timescale:
If you're ordering in good time (not in a rush), I would say it takes about 2-3 weeks to turn your invitations around... If however, (which seems to happen a lot), you are ordering last minute, the quickest turn around time is 1 week (7 working days).
Matching On the Day Stationery:
Lots of couples want their day stationery to match their invitations... Personally, I think it's a nice touch and something that your guests will notice and appreciate. You've set the tone with your invitations so it makes sense to carry it through to on the Big Day too. All of the Tailored Collection designs come with matching day stationery items, but as these bits seem to leave my studio straight away so I don't have much in terms of samples, but I do have a few images so fear not! The stationery items for on the wedding day is endless and I do it all:
- Orders of Service booklets/ cards
- Place Names
- Table Plan
- Table Name/ Number cards
- Welcome sign / signage
- Labels for favours
- Menus for the tables
Don't hesitate to get in touch if you want to see any invitation samples- I send these out free of charge... And I do think it's always worth doing so if you've got the time- just so you can see the paper stock, quality, colours etc.
I don't usually meet up with my clients for consultations for the Tailored Collection; there shouldn't be any need to. Most people order online and we communicate via email. If you want a phone consultation, that's not a problem at all. But I work with brides and grooms from all over the country, so it's not always easy to meet up, hence why ordering from this collection is easier than going for something totally bespoke.
So, to give you an idea of how one of the designs from the Collection can be altered, please see the images below; all of these started with the White Snapdragon (first image) as the selected design from the outset...
