My Exclusive tips for Gathering Design Inspiration

My tips + tricks to gathering design inspiration for all my invitation clients.

Mood Boards

To me, mood boards are an essential part to creating a concept for the design. During every consultation, I ask this question to my clients, “How do you want to feel on your wedding day?”. Their answer tells me almost everything I need to know. I gather images that associate with the specific feeling(s) my clients want to experience on their wedding day, as well as different colors and textures to their overall theme. This creates a vision and gives me direction for the invitation suite. As a Full Custom clients, a mood board is an absolute must to create a vision for the final invitation suite. There’s examples of recent client’s mood boards on my story.

Smallest Details

I want the smallest details that make your wedding unique, because that’s what makes up the best details of a design. Are you planning something untraditional? What are you feeding your guests? What textures do you love about your venue? What’s unique about your wedding date? Tell me everything.


The final aspect and my favorite part of curating custom invitations is bringing personality of the couple and your love story into the design.
