Brown Sugar Design was one of the best decisions we made in choosing our vendors for our wedding. From the very start to the very end, Whitney and Jonathan have been nothing short of wonderful and a absolute pleasure to work with. We felt that they went above and beyond what we could have ever hoped for. They are super nice, communicative, involved, willing to accommodate what we wanted, responsive, fast, and caring. We always felt that they had our best interests at heart.They are the type of vendors a bride dreams about and we constantly compared them to our other vendors and wished those vendors were more like BSD. If we ever need any paper goods/invitations again, we look forward to being able to work with BSD, again!

Brown Sugar Design is simply amazing! They took care of us from beginning to end. We didn't have to worry about anything. They had endless creative ideas and helped us personalize those ideas to fit us and our vision! Not only did they help us with the invitations, they did much more! Thank you cards, signage, escort cards, etc. Everyone was so impressed with the design and details of our wedding...especially my husband and I. The wedding day was such a success and we attribute a great majority of that success to Whitney & Jonathan. We are very grateful for all of their diligent hard work!

Whitney and Jonathan are extremely talented, fun, artistic, and unique wedding invitation designers! We had a blast designing our one-of-a-kind wedding invite suite; everything from our Save the Dates and wedding invite package, to our wedding web-site and day-of stationary. I received endless comments on how beautiful our invitations were and how many details of our wedding were tied together through our stationary theme. Everything was designed perfectly. Our ice-bar even included a special image, designed by Brown Sugar Design, which of course matched our invites! It was a total WOW factor! Whitney and Jonathan thought of all the last minute details that I would not have known about. They have an artistic and beautiful eye. Their customer service was awesome. They made me feel like I was the most important client, even though I know they were slammed. Whitney even went as far as meeting me at a local grocery store so I could pick up my place cards early enough to have a friend calligrapher them! They were also full of money-saving ideas that allowed me to have more pieces on a lower budget. There were some pieces I wanted to spend more money on (i.e. the invite!) and pieces that I didn’t care as much about (the ceremony program). Regardless of where I spent the money – they made the entire collection look flawless, cohesive, and beautiful. I highly recommend Brown Sugar Design if you want a unique, memorable, and YOU wedding. They’re sure to do an excellent job!

We cannot say enough good things about Brown Sugar Design! The designs were beautiful. The attention to detail was spectacular. Brown Sugar was professional, on time, and diligent. They captured the essence of our wedding celebration perfectly. They cared enough to pick out the perfect paper, perfect paper accessories, perfect ink colors and took the time to assemble many of the paper goods for us. They also never failed to provide us with a plethora of options for each phase of our wedding celebration from the stamps to the announcements. Brown Sugar is a PNW gem!

Brown Sugar Design was great! They were wonderful to work with. I probabaly wasn't the easiest customer as I had no idea what I was looking for, what colors I wanted or even exactly what paper items I needed. On top of all that I am a procrastinater and put every decision off to the last minute. They helped me through all of my decisions and finished all of my items in plenty of time. The finished products all looked beautiful. I couldn't have been happier with what they created.

I absolutely loved everything about my experience with Brown Sugar Design. They custom made our invitations with matching brunch invites, thank you cards, and programs for the day of the wedding. Brown Sugar showed me the most beautiful designs that were created with my wedding decor in mind. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our vision a reality!!!

The Brown Sugar Design husband and wife team - Jonathan and Whitney Speir - are dream wedding vendors! They are so talented at what they do, however, in addition to this, they are devout professionals. They are insistent upon a final product that exceeds your expectations.

Jonathan and Whitney listen avidly to your ideas and take your design concepts to the next level. I could not be more pleased with the Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations they have created for us. I also appreciate their phenomenal customer service. They are right on top of everything and deliver within their promised timelines. They strive to work within your stated budget and offer ideas on how to achieve the look you desire within your price range. They are simply fabulous and bar none the - BEST!

Additionally, do not hesitate to contact them if you are outside of the greater Seattle area. They are happy to work with clients all over the world and their professionalism and years of experience make the process just as seamless as if you were local.

I will recommend Brown Sugar Designs to any and all my friends desiring a custom-designed invitation, stationary, announcement or other paperie products at my soonest opportunity. Whitney and Jonathan were amazing to work with; they were sensitive to my budget, offered seasoned advice and suggestions for design, offered a quick turnaround time for proofing and printing and lastly, created the most beautiful, timeless, classic invitations and programs for our wedding than I ever could have hoped for. The compliments are still ongoing and without a doubt I will go to Whitney for any future needs. Thank you so much!

Overall, Brown Sugar design was great to work with - very responsive, always accommodating our requests. They did a great job with a lot of extras that weren't part of the original contract. However, after looking at what spent for invitations, it might be worth going with something less custom - especially since we couldn't actually look at some of the pieces before printing, and in one case didn't get what we were expecting. Yes, it was what we signed, but I didn't really appreciate what I was signing, I suppose. I also was a bit frustrated with the timeline and lack of organized deadlines - I didn't get a sense for when things needed to be done (and was unsure if that was BSD or the wedding planner or my responsibility), so the invitations went out a few weeks late.

Very good designers, however, and super-friendly and flexible!

I am so happy that I chose Brown Sugar Design for our wedding invitations. They were the only company, and I mean the ONLY company that told us they could provide us with the options of colors, design and quality we wanted. I searched all over and Brown Sugar design had everything we wanted. Our experience with Whitney was professional, creative, and wonderful. I would recommend them to any bride or anyone for that matter who needs invitations, place cards, menus, etc... Our wedding invitations, to this day, are one of my favorite parts of our wedding. I know that sounds weird, but they were beautiful and literally exactly what I wanted.

Whitney and Jonathan from Brown Sugar Designs were AMAZING. They took the vague seed of an idea we had for a wedding and and helped it grow into an incredible event. I cannot recommend Brown Sugar highly enough!
