Custom Wedding Invitations
Your invitations are oftentimes the first thing your guests see pertaining to your wedding, so they’ll set the tone for the day. From the overall vibe (will they be classic? elegant? bold?) to the finer details (like fonts, paper, color), you deserve custom invitations that radiate your personalities, include the sweet details of your relationship, and tie the day together.
Partnering with Serif & Spice means your invitations will be fully custom - created for you, from scratch. I'm here as your designer, consultant, and friend to take care of each step for you, from the design to production to delivery. That way, you can rest assured knowing this part of your wedding is in good hands while you focus on other planning aspects.
The fun doesn’t end at the invitations. There are multiple stationery items that may go into your special day (like programs, signage, place cards, favors, thank you notes), and I'm here to ensure you have everything you need and that all of your paper goods are beautifully cohesive and reflect your ideas and vision. Scroll on to see examples and to learn about process and pricing.

HOW IT WORKS
I recommend reaching out a minimum of 8 months prior to your wedding date to talk about invitations, day-of stationery, and thank you notes (and at least 10 months prior for a destination wedding). If you’d like to include Save the Dates with your suite, consider reaching out at least 14 months in advance of your date. It’s never too early to start the conversation to ensure we have ample time for design, production, and delivery!
We’ll start with a brief inquiry call to get to know each other a bit, for me to hear about your invitation needs, and for you to ask me any questions you need to before booking. From there, I’ll follow up with a custom proposal that includes a timeline, quote, and contract. Serif & Spice requires a nonrefundable deposit of $1,000 depending on project scope to get started, which will be taken off of the final invoice due after mailing your invitations. Once the contract is signed and the deposit is paid, we will officially get started!
Next steps will be setting up a Zoom call to speak about all things design. This is where we will really get into the details of your big day and your design preferences. We’ll chat about your vision, plans, colors, decor, likes, and dislikes. If you’re in the NYC area and would prefer to meet in person, let’s find a fun cafe to meet at, instead!
Choosing a Visual Direction
I’ll take what we spoke about and create moodboards that include imagery, colors, details, design styles, and production techniques that capture your vision for your special day. We will meet again via Zoom (or in person) to carefully review these and choose a visual direction to go in together.
Once we have a direction chosen, I’ll design your wedding invitation suite accordingly! I will send this via email. To ensure they are absolutely perfect, you’ll have unlimited revisions.
Once we have gone through any revisions and you give the design your final blessing, I’ll have your invites printed and produced by my lovely production partners.
Assembly and Delivery
Serif & Spice offers assembly and mailing services! Once printed, I assemble your invitations and correspond with the post office to have them mailed directly to your guests. Some couples prefer to assemble and mail their invitations themselves in order to take part in the process. In this case, I have them carefully packaged and delivered to your door, ready for you to dive in!
When you work with Serif & Spice, you’re receiving a custom experience and design from the ground up. Custom paper goods means custom prices, and the sky's the limit in terms of the details, materials, embellishments, and printing techniques that can be included. Serif & Spice also offers optional assembly and mailing services.
Pricing for 100 custom designed, digitally printed invitation suites starts at approximately $3,000.
