A beautifully designed invitation provides your guests with the first tantalising glimpse of the celebration ahead. It sets the scene.

Together, we'll talk through your vision for the day – dreams, wishes, colours – and create a custom design that captures it all. The perfect representation of you.

And depending on your requirements, you may need some of the following stationery pieces to complete your set.

Before the day:
Save the date, RSVP, an information card, (i.e accommodation, directions, maps), and registry information.

On the day:
Order of service, welcome sign, seating plan, table numbers or names, place cards, gift tags, and menus.

Thank you cards

We design and host websites that feature all the details of your upcoming celebration, including venue information, maps, accommodation details, and an online RSVP. The websites are secure and password protected. All you need to do is spread the word and watch the RSVP's start rolling in!

Standard website
The standard website is a simple and stylish accompaniment to your Desert Rose stationery set. It's designed to compliment your stationery, using the same design elements and colours. The website address details and password will be included in your stationery set.

Standalone website
If you would like a website instead of stationery - this is the option for you. Working with you, we will create a personalised website that sets the scene for your special occasion. The website details and password can be provided in a personalised email for you to send out, or printed onto a small card.

Design process

A $150 non-refundable deposit is due once the details are finalised. When the design of your stationery is complete and you are (thoroughly!) happy, I will provide you with a quote for printing and finishing your stationery. 50% of the payment is required when the stationery is sent to print, and the remainder is due on completion of your order.

Your stationery will arrive ready to pop straight into envelopes, and deliver.

From print to post, please allow two weeks.
