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.

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?

Tough question, there have been many! But I think I'll have to say my own wedding, 12 years ago. It's how I got into designing wedding stationery :)

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Rustic, eco, vintage, floral, boho.

What about your business are you most proud of?

My customer service - I love what I do and love dealing with clients, answering questions, putting their minds at rest, even being an agony aunt sometimes! 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'm also proud that my business is eco-friendly. I choose to use recycled card/envelopes not only because it's kinder to the environment but it is beautifully textured and has a lot of character. Please feel free to order a free sample -- you'll see what I mean :)

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

This is your day, so do it your way! x

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

A little photo display remembering/honouring lost loved ones that you wish could be there is a special touch.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

If you are interested in placing an order the first thing I offer is a no-obligation quotation which 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 2-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 enquiry up until delivery (and afterwards) you are very welcome to get in touch if you have any query - no matter how small. I am always at hand if you need any advice or a chat about anything you may be concerned with - via email or over the telephone.

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

It's difficult to pin it down to one item, but if I have to I'd say the invitation. It gives guests an exciting glimpse of what it is to come, and it's something you can really inject your personalities into.

What is your best seller?

My rustic 'Boho' floral and 'Ticket' style designs are doing pretty well at the moment, but I'm getting lots of bespoke requests too which are always nice to do :)

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

I always use Royal Mail first-class recorded delivery - not the most innovative but I find it to be the most reliable. Or customers always have the option to pick them up in person if they live close by :)

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

My stationery is illustrative (I'm a graphic designer) so I use a lot of watercolour imagery and I'm obsessed with fonts!
