custom designed and handcrafted invitations are the heart and soul of asarye paperie. planning a wedding can be stressful and my goal is to be there for you during every step of the way when designing your stationery.

here’s how it works

The Connection

 

I prefer to call my consultations my connections instead because that’s what I’m looking to do. I am happy to offer it in-person, online or even begin over the phone. I realize not everybody likes to sit down to a meeting so I like to offer it in whatever way is the most comfortable for you.

The first thing I ask is how you met. How you started dating and how you got engaged. Please share with me any cute, funny or romantic little stories that show me who you are together. I want to know exactly what you picture when you close your eyes and envision your wedding day. No detail is too small. The more I can visualize your day, the better prepared I am to make it come to life.

All The Ideas

 

Once we have made our connection, I ask what needs you have for your invitation suite. Do you need an elaborate pocket fold invitation with a lot of inserts with information or do you just need a simple panel invitation? Are you looking for all the bells and whistles or are you looking for a traditional and clean design? I am happy to help you figure out what your wants and needs are, and to help create a plan that is within your budget. With so many options with card styles and colour choices, I can show you a variety of options to get you excited and inspired!

The Proposal

 

Once we have decided on an idea, colours and card style, I will provide you with a proposal. This will contain information about materials, what’s included, a contract and how the design process works.

 

The Agreement

 

If you are happy with our connection, ideas and proposal, let’s get you booked! Asarye Paperie requires the contract to be signed and the first deposit to be paid in order to secure a spot in my calendar. I will follow up with an online questionnaire. This will contain pertinent details about your wedding that will be included on the invitation. I will ask for images you may have saved or to share with me your wedding Pinterest board. Seeing the items you’ve liked and saved helps me fully understand your sense of style. Once this has been submitted, we’re ready to design!

Design + Fabrication

 

Now we’ve gotten to the fun! Asarye Paperie will provide a first draft and digital mockup of your invitation for you to view. All information on the invitation is inputted exactly as provided on the questionnaire. It is of the utmost importance that every word is reviewed to ensure there are no spelling or grammatical errors and for you to be 100% honest about how you’re feeling about the design. No edits are too small and three are included in your package so please be as detailed as possible.

Once the edits have been made and the final design has been approved, the final payment will be due prior to print. Once payment has been received, it will become official! They will then be assembled by hand (with tons of love!) and delivered to you upon completion.
