The Wedding Boutique centers around your wedding invitations because they will likely be the most involved part of the stationery process.
Have no fear, the process is simple. All you need to do is look through the design packages and resources below. This will give you a good idea of what we offer, our capabilities, how we work and pricing options. We also invite you to browse through the custom gallery to see past projects from happy clients.
If you are ready to begin discussing your custom wedding invitations, Fill out and send your Design Boutique request using the submission form provided below. Do your best to provide as much detail as you can as well as inspiration. We want to be able to give you the most accurate price estimate and timeline for your project so the more information you provide the better we will do.
Once we have received your design boutique request, we’ll assign you to one of our friendly and professional designers. After she has reviewed your request, she will get in touch with you with comments, questions, design ideas and pricing information. This process usually takes about a week.
Your designer will then be there to walk you through the entire process. You will work directly with your designer for all aspects of the project. We love email but we are here to make this process as easy for your as we can.
If you are looking for a fully custom design or want to customize one of our studio designs, start by submitting a Design Boutique Request. Your personal designer will provide you with pricing, timeline and all the information and details based on the information you have provided usually within one week. To move forward from there, you will need to approve the initial project price estimate and submit your non-refundable retainer. Once the details are settled, your designer will provide you with a project form for you to fill out with all your wedding details such as wording, times, dates, etc.
Once your retainer and information are received, you will then be sent a pdf proof of your order. With you proof in hand, you will then work directly with your designer to make as many changes as you need until you are 100% happy with your proof.
Our Invitation suites range in price from $5 to $25 and above based on a quantity of 100. This includes invitations with envelopes, rsvp with envelope and one enclosure card. If you need more or fewer pieces or a smaller quantity prices may vary. Adding pockets, belly bands, envelope liners and/or envelope printing as well as upgrading to Letterpress of Foil printing will also impact the price. That is what makes the range so wide.
Pricing depends on the printing method, amount of design customization as well as finishing options. You may order all items a la carte so that you can pick and choose the exact pieces you need for your wedding invitation suite.
Your designer will provide you with a detailed estimate so you know how much each option adds to your suite. We are a team of experienced stationery designers and we are here to help you pick the pieces and options that work with your budget regardless of how big or small.
We are here to create stunning, personal invitations, no matter what!
For wedding invitations, our minimum quantity is 25 and quantities increase from there in increments of 5.
For custom orders, customers pay a non-refundable retainer which is typically around 25% of the package total. If a customer wishes to cancel their order prior to final art approval, the retainer will not be refunded.
Because final payment is due at the time of final art approval, once approval is given for printing/production to begin, cancellations past that point are not possible.
If a cancellation is made after initial proof pdfs have been sent, there may be additional fees billed to cover any custom paper or supply orders which often cannot be returned.
Yes. Once you have talked with your designer and agree both you and your designer have a plan you love, you must approve your initial price estimate and be prepared to pay your non-refundable retainer. This covers any initial design time for proofs, or special order paper or materials. The amount varies based on order total but usually ranges in the 25% to 45% of the order total.
Absolutely! We can design anything you need for your big day so your entire stationery package is cohesive.

It’s easy way for you to create a custom invitation suite as one-of-a-kind as you are. Maybe you have a specific vision or have found a couple designs that are close, but you need a designer’s help to bring your vision to life. That’s where the design boutique comes in.
We’ve worked with so many couples that have assembled design inspiration from Pinterest, Instagram, and magazines. We take all that inspiration as a visual representation of the look and feel of your wedding to create a personal and unique invitation suite that is all your own.
Custom design is one of our favorite things to do; we consider it our specialty. We take such pride and joy in working with a couple to create original designs with our own RC signature flair. We cannot and will not recreate or copy something you have saved from somewhere else, but why would you want that when we can work one-on-one with you to create something that is special and amazing just for you?
If you aren’t sure if you want a fully custom package, a customized design from something from our shop or how to personalize a design in the shop, the section below explains the differences between starting from scratch, customizing an existing design or personalizing an existing design.
Each option explained.
You’ve found just the right design in the shop or from a feature on our site. All you need to do is personalize the wording, revise a font or add in your own details. Maybe you need to add an additional enclosure card or swap a different envelope color or style, but nothing major. The design is almost perfect!
Our most popular option! You can fully customize a design that you’ve found from our shop or site feature. You can customize a design that’s close by combining elements from other designs or by tweaking the design to make it your own. This is the package that most customers love because it gives them the best of both worlds!
This package option is completely from scratch. Your vision is something no one else has done before. You want something that represents you as a couple and no one else. You work directly with your designer to create a design that is completely custom, down to the smallest details and you have the time required to make this happen.
