You’re not just Another bride

Why Order invitations Any Other Bride Could Have?

 

 

You’re looking for something unique, something your guests have never seen before, and something that perfectly expresses your personality and style…not something that you might end up getting in the mail from an engaged friend!

You want a designer who can handle everything, keep you on schedule and on budget… because you already have more than enough going on in your life.

But all those ready-to-order sites with their mass-produced designs feel flat. They lack that “Je Ne Sais Quoi” feeling you’re after. The ‘easy’ customization systems always leave something to be desired and, not to mention, you still have to find someone who can make that escort board, welcome sign, and those vows books you’ve been dreaming about.

that’s where i come in.

I’m here to help you get the invitations you’ve always dreamed of for a wedding that will amaze your guests and be something you can be proud of for years to come.

With one-stop-shop boutique service and completely custom, one-of-a-kind calligraphy and design, I can help you sort through all the noise so that your wedding paper becomes a keepsake that reminds you of one of the happiest days of your life.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Best Wishes, You’re Engaged!

I’m here to help make your dream invitations a reality

 

 

I’ve been designing for as long as I can remember… print shop cards, family newsletters, reunion invitations… you name it, I created it! I followed that love of design and making things all the way to university, where I majored in graphic design. I wandered down the project management path after that, designing on the side and pleasing my Type-A left brain with checklists and timelines while I was at it.

But I needed a bit more creativity in my life, so I took up calligraphy in 2014 and haven’t looked back. It wasn’t until I got engaged, and decided to design and letter my own wedding invitations, that I realized what my next step was… wedding paper and details!

I started alexandra em. to be a collaborative, stress-free, one-stop-shop boutique. I help brides like you have the invitations and wedding details they’ve been dreaming of, and a design experience that is just as dreamy.

 
 
 

Do you Only Do Weddings?

Nope!

I take on full-suite weddings, invitations, envelope calligraphy, and individual pieces like wax seals, escort boards, and welcome signs.

Looking for something a little more personal? I also create custom stationery for all your business needs!

do you have experience?

Most definitely!

I received a BFA in Graphic Design and have been a practicing designer and project manager for more than 10 years.

As for the calligraphy side, I’ve been a lettering artist for the last 5 years and am always taking courses and resources to improve my skills!

FAQ: For Inquiring Brides

 

 
 

+ How Long Does the Custom Design Process Take?

Creating a personalized, made-to-order suite from design to print to mailing takes at least ten weeks. While it’s ideal to have as much time as possible (a few months), if you've cut close to the timeline, I’d still love to hear from you!


+ My Wedding Is In 4 Months, Do I Have Time For Custom Invitations?

Yes! I’ll create a custom timeline just for you to make sure we get everything taken care of and in the mail in plenty of time.


+ How Many Invitations Should I Order?

You’ll want to order about one invitation suite per household. Families only need to be sent one invitation, unless there are adult children living with their parents. Inviting roommates? Each friend should get their own. And you’ll want to order about 20% extra for last minute editions and the inevitable invitation that gets lost by the USPS. I’ll take all this into account when sending your invitations to print, so you won’t have to worry about a thing!


+ When Should I Mail My Invitations?

You’ll want to mail your save the dates about 6-8 months before your wedding and your invitations about 8 weeks before your wedding.

+ Can You Help Me Figure Out The Etiquette?

But, of course, darling!


+ Can You Design My Programs?

Absolutely! I can take on all of your ceremony and receptions needs from welcome signs and aisle runners to escort cards, programs, and menus.


+ What If I Only Need Envelope Calligraphy?

No problem! Envelope calligraphy is a great way to personalize your invitations and give them major wow-factor. And it’s a great place to splurge if custom invitations aren’t in your budget.


+ How Do I Get Started?

The first step is a chat with me to talk about all your wedding wishes (hit the pink button above for a free consult)! I’ll have you complete a questionnaire and put together a personalized proposal for your dream invitations!
