Custom Wedding Invitations
WHY CHOOSE CUSTOM?
Your love story isn’t an off the rack special - it’s a one-of-a-kind, couture Dior gown woven from the memories of your first kiss, your go-to movie-on-repeat, and that time you stumbled on a prairie-dog sanctuary road-tripping through the Dakotas.
When you work with Lionhead Design, you’re bringing a formally trained artist with over a decade of event industry experience onto your team. We’ll work together to go beyond the template flowers and pearlescent card stock to put your sweetest memories on paper, creating meaningful, heirloom-quality art to last a lifetime. Plus, stationery wording and etiquette are extremely specific and exact, so consider me your built-in personal coach to help you either follow the rules or kick them to the curb!
So much of our wedding days pass in a blur of love, excitement, and (both metaphorical and literal) glitter, and while our flowers will fade and veils sadly don’t fall under ‘business casual’ yet, your fairytale illustrations will last a lifetime as a framed reminder of your most magical day. From save the dates to thank you notes, wedding stationery is the first and last thing your guests will touch, so let’s make it memorable, helpful, and perfectly you!
What's the Process?
CONSULTATION + PROPOSAL
We'll chat about your vision, all your hopes and dreams, and I'll answer any questions you have to help you decide whether we're the right fit for your wedding. If everything feels right and you're ready to move forward, I'll send a proposal that we'll refine into a final plan, and then the real fun starts! We'll deep dive to define and refine your style, themes, aesthetics, and wording to make sure your invitations tell the exact story you're planning to tell.
DESIGN + PROOFING
Buckle up, because this is a super collaborative process at Lionhead Design! Through a series of sketches and mockups, we'll work together to create the perfect design for each and every individual piece of your suite. Once our concept is complete, I'll hand paint and calligraph every individual element to bring your vision to life. This process isn't fast and it definitely isn't formulaic, but it is fun, and it is a beautiful way to create a lasting illustration of this magical time in your lives.
APPROVAL + PRODUCTION
Once our i's are dotted, our t's are crossed, and you've approved your final designs, I'll send everything off to print, and then all we do is wait! If you choose, I'll take the heartache and paper cuts of assembly off your hands, otherwise, I'll deliver your beautiful, final, individual elements to you to stuff, seal, and deliver to the post office! Champagne and cupcakes for everyone!
While every couple's design is unique and tailor-made to their style and needs, we'll typically begin with the
Signature Foundation Invitation Suite, which includes an invitation, reply card and envelope, details card, and mailing envelope, and is a beautiful suite all on its own. If you're looking to include a little more information or add on a few more bells and whistles, however, we can add additional enclosure cards and embellishments to make your suite perfectly your own.
