Perfect from start to finish!
I absolutely loved our invites! I initially ordered a couple of samples of different ranges. Raes communication from start to finish was perfect and we have had so many compliments!! She was very good at meeting my demands (our guests invites had their names printed on individually) and was sure to send multiple proofs and ideas to improve them! I was hoping to frame them with our wedding pictures but sadly it now looks as though our wedding will be postponed 😔

Rae was outstanding in her service for our wedding
Rae was outstanding in her service for our wedding. As we were getting married in the theatre, we ordered personalised invites in the style of tickets and orders of service in the style of programmes. She designed them all to a high standard and everyone commented on their originality. We also ordered I-Spy cards for our tables. I would highly recommend Rae Designs for wedding stationery.

Elegant, happy & bright
The stationery that made by Rae created for a recent eco-friendly shoot we were involved in was so beautifully executed. It was elegant, happy & bright. It really captured the essence of the shoot and was totally sustainable which is awesome 🙌🏻 Can’t wait to work with more pieces on future shoots 💗

Rae's creativity is amazing
I recently collaborated with Rae on a wedding styled shoot and she produced stunning stationery which was perfect for the vision I had! Her stationery was a delicate floral design which was also eco-friendly! The stationery was designed quickly, a sample was sent to me via email and then the stationery was posted out in advance of the shoot. Rae's creativity is amazing and perfectly suited to wedding stationery.

Thank you so so much - they are beautiful!!
Rae, Thank you for all of your work and emails and for helping us along the way at each step of the process - I really appreciate everything you have done - we love them! I want to share with you what some of our guests have said: One said they are beautiful and the best invite she has ever had! Several have commented on how pretty and gorgeous they are and the colours are amazing on them. And another said they are beautiful and she nearly cried when she opened/read it! So thank you again! I was so happy to hear so many wonderful things about them. Chloe xx

I’m just so happy we found Rae
We have just got our order of wedding invites & RSVP’s & I could not happier! Rae has been fantastic from start to finish, she’s been really responsive & kept us updated at every stage. She was able to make changes to the colour of envelopes to perfectly match our colour palette & added extra printed envelopes for RSVP’s. It has taken me months to choose invites and I must have ordered samples from most Etsy shops and I’m just so happy we found Rae. Nothing was too much trouble and I will be ordering all my day stationary with Rae too - thank you for making this bit of our wedding planning go so smoothly! :)

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

My most memorable wedding was a bespoke commission for an ultra-stylish and very private A-list celebrity couple. Their wedding was breathtakingly beautiful and 100% eco friendly.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Eco-lux, vintage, floral, bohemian, illustrative.

What about your business are you most proud of?

-- Providing value for money and down-to-earth good customer service. Let's face it, wedding planning can be stressful, so whatever I can do to make this part of the process stress-free and enjoyable is of paramount importance to me. I answer emails promptly, keep clients updated, deliver when I say I'm going to, and I'm here to offer advice whenever needed :) -- My business is super eco-friendly. I only offer stationery that's made from sustainable/recycled papers, and everything is sourced from UK paper mills. I also print everything at my studio in Worcestershire. -- I serve EVERYONE. Whatever your background, sexual orientation, religion, race, class, etc, etc. You are welcome and will be treated with respect.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

This is your day, so do it your way. And try to make your wedding as eco-friendly as you can.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

-- A little photo display remembering lost love ones -- Handmade favours

Describe your typical process with a couple.

If you are interested in placing an order the first thing I offer is a friendly, no-obligation consultation to discuss your requirements. I'll then email you an itemised quotation that will detail what's included, delivery times, payment details etc, and I will answer any questions/queries you may have. I will then send you a free sample. If you would then like to place a bulk order I will ask you for your wedding information/text along with a deposit. Then within 5-working days I will email you high-resolution proofs to for you to check for any errors/typos etc. Any textual amendments are carried out free of charge and amended pdf proofs are emailed to be checked again. Once you have approved your proofs, the balance can be paid and your finished order will be delivered via 1st class recorded delivery within 2-3 weeks thereafter. Shorter turnarounds can be offered for urgent orders. At any point during the process, from inquiry up until delivery (and afterward) you are very welcome to get in touch. I am always at hand if you need any advice or a chat about anything you may be concerned with.

What is the most important piece of stationery for a wedding and why?

I'd say the invitation, for sure. It gives your guests an exciting glimpse of what it is to come.

What is your best seller?

I tend to do mostly bespoke commissions, which I love!

What is the most innovative delivery method you have come across?

I always use Royal Mail first class recorded delivery, or clients are always welcome to pick up in person if they live nearby :)

How do you add romance to any wedding stationery you do?

Watercolours, illustrations, fonts, calligraphy - I'm a graphic designer so the skies the limit :)
