During the first consultation with a potential bride, I always let them know that simply because we’re meeting does not mean that they have to book me as their wedding stationer. Custom wedding invitations are not in everyone’s budget (unfortunately). I know that going into each and every appointment that I have. Luckily, if a bride has her hopes set on custom stationery, I usually find a way to make it fit into their budget.

Of course, this is not always the case. Because of this, I would like to throw out a few stationery places that I would recommend. If I can’t help you design your dream invitations, I would at least like to point you in the right direction!

Designs by Victoria – I’ve had the privilege of working with Vicki on several projects and all I can say is that she’s wonderful! She’s located in Noblesville – so you actually meet with a real live person as opposed to a website customer care person. You’ll realize how much peace of mind that will give you if you try doing things online!

However, not all online vendors are bad! I would highly recommend these sites to any bride looking for beautiful invitations on a budget…

I’m sure you’ve all heard of theknot.com. Maybe you’re even using it to help plan/organize your wedding – I know I  did! It’s a great resource for finding wedding day inspiration. They’ve got hundreds of *quality* photos which is why I always recommend the site to my brides. As of this year, TEN:THIRTEEN design is also a vendor on their site. I feel as though I’ve come full circle with them.

So, if you’re in need of some inspiration, check out theknot.com!
