Custom Wedding Stationery
Real talk, EVERY part of wedding planning is the most important part of wedding planning (whether you've been planning since you could make a veil out of a pillowcase, or you're not sure what a charger is), depending on what matters most to you and where you want to focus your time, energy, and budget. Because choosing your save the dates and invitations is one of the first things you'll need to do (after choosing a venue and date!), investing your resources into this step can be helpful in that they'll help you narrow down your style and set the tone for the big day by pulling together your theme, color palette, and overall tone in one easy-to-reference place! Even though there are a million beautiful bridesmaid dresses out there, if you choose soft greens and whimsical, romantic florals on your save the dates, it's so much easier to narrow down your search to soft green gauzy dresses (which there are still at least a thousand of, but still!) and cut back at least some of that decision fatigue. Your invitations help guests know what to expect, too - a letterpressed invitation with gilded edges says something MUCH different than an invitation with a reply card that gives the options of 'F*ck yes!' and 'Hells no!' as RSVP responses. And by creating custom stationery, your love story can be worked into every last detail because your story is amazing and who doesn't love an easter egg?
The standard Lionhead Design wedding invitation suite comes with an invitation, reply card, details card, and mailing and reply card envelopes, but the joy of custom is that we can do whatever we want, however we want! Clients will often add additional enclosure cards, rehearsal dinner invites, envelope liners, silk ribbons, colored envelopes... we'll find a way to make whatever feels right to you work.
Pricing can vary pretty dramatically, but a digitally printed standard suite starts at $2,500 for 100 complete suites.
Day-of and Beyond
When you have a design you love, put it on everything! Tie together all of your beautiful design elements by bringing details from your invitations into programs, escort cards, menus, drink signs, thank you cards, gobos, backdrops, bar backs, M&Ms... as per usual, (almost!) anything you want!
"Absolutely the best! I could not imagine a more positive experience. For those of you deep in the wedding planning, you know that it can get stressful. Working with Aleksa was a bright light in the process. Aleksa is extremely talented. I am not at all artistic, but some how she was able to tease out and fully execute a much better version of what I had hoped for... At every step of the process Aleksa was prompt and accommodating. She really worked with me to get to a finished perfect finished product. I honestly cannot speak highly enough about her and her work. Hire her! It was one of the best decisions we made!
