Wedding invitation consultations are by appointment at our Media, Pennsylvania studio. Consultations are scheduled for roughly six to eight months prior to your event date. If you think you should come in prior to eight months, please let us know.
We offer one, two hour complimentary consultation at our Media, Pennsylvania studio. Additional consultations prior to making a deposit will require a $50 non-refundable deposit that will be credited toward your wedding invitation order. At your consultation, we get to know you and discuss all information necessary to create your perfect custom invitation suite. We show you our portfolio of invitations suites, invitation samples, as well as paper and ink samples. Consultations typically last one to two hours.
At the consultation, we will give you a price estimate valid for 30 days. If you would like to order your invitations at your consultation, we request a deposit of 50% of the estimate. Payment options include check or cash.
Should you decide to order invitations with us, we will provide expert advice on invitation wording, etiquette, and the best ways to incorporate additional information including hotel and transportation information into your invitation suite.
Please bring any and all information regarding your wedding day logistics (date and time of ceremony, reception, after-party, etc.) as well as photos, swatches or other wedding inspiration!
What do wedding invitations cost?
The “average cost of wedding invitations” in the US, as reported by most wedding websites, factors in minimally custom internet sales and DIY invitations you can purchase from office supply stores and print on your home computer. The average cost of truly custom wedding invitations, regardless of where you purchase them, will be roughly 5% of your overall wedding budget.
Please also note there is a $1000 minimum purchase requirement on all wedding invitation orders, a $500 for Save the Date card orders (which is waived if Save the Date cards are order with Wedding Invitations) and $750 minimum for reception or “day of” items (which is waived if “day of” items are ordered with Wedding Invitations).
We are very sorry, but we do not discount our designs, or offer cash discounts.
Your estimate will include an electronic proof of your invitation. Paper proofs are additional. All proofs must be approved before printing.

Once proofs are approved, please allow up to five weeks for production time. Rush production and shipping is available for an additional fee.
