Say it with me: PER👏🏼SON👏🏼ALITY. (Hand claps are optional.) THAT is what I try to serve up in big ole doses when I create custom invitations. The goal here is to design something so 100% you that even Meyers-Briggs has to take a step back to reevaluate their life with a pint of chocolate chip ice cream. It’s your love story — sealed up neatly in an envelope and told with watercolor instead of words. You can’t keep the flowers, the dress gets worn once (unless you’re planning on wearing it bowling for your 4 year anniversary like I am), and the cake is long gone, but your invitations? They’re a keepsake that’s a tangible memory of the best day EVER. I firmly believe your story needs some visuals to go with it, and not just any old clip art that “matches your bridesmaids’ dresses.” Let’s add your doggos, the restaurant where you two always go for Sunday brunch and a crest with tiny little horseshoes because you prefer cowboy boots over Chanel any day of the week. Every single one of my invitation designs includes custom artwork that is 100% hand-painted by me, so you won't find illustrations like this anywhere else. Fun, right?? If this sounds like a wedding detail you can’t live without, welcome to the paper club (it’s the BEST!), and let’s get started!
My brides can typically expect to spend around $4,200 for 100 custom watercolor invitation suites (invitation + envelopes, RSVP card + envelopes and a details card). Pricing varies depending on quantity and additional pieces such as maps, envelope liners, wax seals and any other fun extras we dream up. The average Cami Monet Bride invests $8,000 on their custom stationery. Once I get all the info from your questionnaire, I'll be able to provide you with a detailed quote tailored to your wedding vision and budget!
The best part? All my invitation suites include all custom watercolor artwork, brush calligraphy and design to bring your #invitationgoals to life. This means your invitations are absolutely one-of-a-kind. Want to include your dog? You got it. A map of your hometown? Sure thing, darlin'! An heirloom family crest with hockey sticks and ice cream cones? Oh yes, that too. Each paper piece of your suite is printed on beautiful, luxe eggshell paper to capture your heirloom invitations perfectly. I'll work with you throughout the process to make sure your invitations are everything you envisioned and create a distinctive look for your wedding. All I need you to do is answer a few questions for me! I can't wait to learn more about your wedding vision!
After filling out my custom invitation questionnaire, I’ll send you a proposal tailored to your wants, wishes and budget. Once your customized package is all squared away (you know, all those nitty-gritty details), you’ll get a fun little “homework” assignment from me: the very official Love Story & Invitation Details questionnaire. This is the stuff that inspires the rest of the process! You’ll also get access to a customized (sensing a theme here?) client portal that keeps all of our documents and proofs in one place.
Now that I know how you two met, the colors that make your heart go pitter-patter and your pet’s names (see I told ya this was important stuff), I create your very own custom look book that includes a color palette, design aesthetic, inspiration images, and the heart behind your invitations. You’ll also get an artist sketch of your invitation artwork and details so we can make sure you 100% love it before I crack open the paint palette.
Once you approve the sketch, the REAL fun part begins! I paint your custom stationery, and then you’ll receive the beautiful watercolor proofs for printing approval. We’ll take care of any tweaks here and ensure every detail is perfect.
Your pretty paper pieces are off to the printer, and then I start working on assembly for you. Envelope calligraphy, custom stamps, wax seals — I take care of the gluing, stamping and sticking so you can just sit back and relax and enjoy date night on the couch, without any extra to-dos. (Because I’ve been there, and I know how that wedding checklist can add up QUICK.)
Your invitations arrive in your guests’ mailboxes, and you get to put on a beautiful white dress and marry the love of your life. Sounds good right??
"Where do I even begin?! I am in awe of Cami’s talent and even more than that her thoughtfulness and organization! Cami created the most gorgeous save the dates and wedding invitation suite for my fiancé and me. Without even meeting in person she was able to accomplish exactly what we envisioned (and more!). I swear I need to step up my wedding decor to match the gorgeousness of this suite! The icing on the cake is that she handles every single detail of invitation assembly and delivery! Seriously such a weight off of our shoulders in the hectic last few weeks leading up to the wedding! She is always organized, on time, and so sweet! She really cares about her clients and goes the extra mile." - Carolyn P.
"Brides - if you are at this page to find someone to do your invitations or day-of wedding details, stop right here and hire Cami immediately! Cami is one of the most talented artists I have ever seen. From maps to dogs to buildings and landscapes, there is nothing Cami can't do. Her work will stay with you forever, and your wedding invitations will become pieces of art in your home. Cami has truly been a DREAM to work with. From the initial consultations to every proof and final product, she has been fun, professional, and unbelievably talented. She has been honestly one of my favorite wedding vendors to work with, and I keep joking that we should invite her to our wedding (but seriously). The whole process was absolutely perfect and I can't recommend her highly enough!" - Kate M.
"Cami is AMAZING and I would highly recommend working with her for any/every aspect of your invitation suite and day-of details. She took our invitation vision and turned them into a magical keepsake that far exceeded expectations. Our guests were equally as impressed - we received a ton of positive messages in response to the invites, which added another layer of excitement going into our wedding. I can honestly say, working with Cami has been my favorite part of wedding planning! Her creativity and talents speaks for itself - just take a look at her work. Beyond that, she cares deeply about creating a product that you will LOVE and consults with you every step of the way. Cami is responsive, adaptable, and brings incredible energy to all that she does. 10/10 would recommend!" - Nina D.
