First things first — congrats on getting engaged! If you're anything like me, you're already dreaming up all the pretty details of your big day and pinning up a storm. (You can unhide that secret wedding board now. No, just me? Okay then.)
Your invitations set the tone for your soiree (sure you've heard it a million times, but it's true!) and offer your guests a little sneak peek of what's to come. (Hopefully lots of cake and champagne.) I'll work with you to create an invitation suite that is completely custom and infused to the brim with you and your fiance's personality. I love painting artwork that's inspired by what you hold near and dear, whether it's your dreamy venue, your favorite florals or the people you love.
My brides can typically expect to spend around $2,335 for 100 custom watercolor invitation suites (invitation + envelopes, RSVP card + envelopes and a details card), but pricing varies depending on quantity and additional pieces such as maps, envelope liners, wax seals, addressing and any other fun extras we dream up. The average Cami Monet Bride invests $5,675 in 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 and calligraphy 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!
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??
