So you probably haven’t planned a wedding before?
I want to make you feel comfortable with what happens if you choose me as your wedding stationery pretti-fier (this is a real thing you know!). Planning your wedding should be fun and enjoyable, not stressy! Remember, you are getting married because of the love, the pretties are just an added bonus!
1) Consultation to discuss your ideas and the options
Let’s talk about the scary sounding ‘consultation’ word. It sounds a bit clinical doesn’t it? All it really is, is an opportunity to take as long as you need to ask me about anything that’s bothering you in relation to booking your wedding stationery. My appointments are offered in a friendly relaxed environment, at a lovely local tea room at the shops on Mapperley top, Tipsy T. There is no obligation whatsoever (I’ll even pay for your cuppa).
You will be able to choose from a wide range of lettering typefaces, your own choice of wording, gift poems, samples of sparkly embellishments, card colours and textures as well as ribbons and so much more!
By taking our time in a relaxed, informal way you will have an idea whether I am the right person for the job as well as seeing all of my lovely designs up close.
2) Sample so you can see your design
Once we’ve chatted about your ideas, you may decide you need to see your chosen wedding invite sample up close – there is a small charge of £5 towards this (which includes postage if necessary), to cover time and materials needed, but if you’re happy that I am going to be able to provide exactly what you’re looking for you may decide to go ahead and confirm the booking there and then (how exciting! Eeekk!!!). This can be done in easy simple ways, via paypal or bank transfer, or good old fashioned cash up front.
Just so you know what you’re getting for your money, even your first sample will be completely personalised from start to finish, from details we will discuss when we meet. This brings your design to life and allows you to see exactly how the finished invite will look, making it all the more real (and it really does!) so when the time comes to send them out you have no doubt in your mind that each and every one will mirror the finished chosen design.
3) Secure your booking and complete your guest list
Once your wedding is secured in the diary with a booking deposit, I will confirm completion dates for the first stage of your order. Once your design has been received and then signed off, the proofs for your wording will then be drafted ready for you to check and make any changes. This is completely customisable to suit your personalities and bring your wedding to life. At each stage I will be in contact to make sure everything runs smoothly and in plenty of time for your special day.
Due to the delicate nature of my wedding stationery, (and how it often feels a bit like waving my children off at the school gate when I hand them over to excited couples – the invites, not my children! soooo much care and attention has gone into these beauties!) I am more than happy for you to collect your stationery from me, and then we both know it is in safe hands.
For a small charge of £10 (within a 15mile radius from NG3) I am delighted to be able to hand deliver your stationery to you myself at a mutually agreeable time. For daytime stationery (seating plan, place cards etc) these can be delivered to venues within in 15mile radius of NG3 for an additional £10 charge – please note this does not include any set up charges, you would need to confirm those arrangements yourself with the venue.
