chewing the cud weddings is a concept-driven design studio specializing in personalized wedding and special occasions stationery. Each of our invitations is a labor of love and reflects a distinct personality. Whether your wedding is by the shores of a white sand beach, in a charming restored schoolhouse, or atop the rolling hills of a vineyard; be it a spring or fall event, we would love to help.

Our strength is in conceptualizing the seedlings of an idea, expanding the possibilities and visually expressing it through the invitations and other wedding details. We think beyond paper and ink, and delight in bringing innovative and surprising details to our designs.

14 signature styles + custom design
Each invitation in our signature collection is designed not as a cookie cutter template, but rather to reflect a certain wedding mood or theme. We want you to be able to personalize them by offering a selection of complementary illustrations, motifs, ribbons and embellishments. For bespoke invitations, please contact us.

Working with Viola was a wonderful experience. She truly took the time to understand our relationship and the nature of our [very complicated] Indian wedding. She had to create 4 different invitations for our various events, and she worked with us to personalize each card. We wanted to fuse a vintage, boho vibe with Indian decorative elements (gold, bells, etc.), and the poetry that Arjun and I wrote to each other while we were dating. She did an exceptional job despite multiple edits and opinions from both of our families. My favorite collaboration is the invite she produced for my henna ceremony, held in the flame of the forest gardens at the Taj West End - we ordered embroidered handkerchiefs and she printed the entire invite on it! They were beautiful. I would definitely work with Viola again, on virtually anything.

ChewingtheCud provided a unique full-service design, printing, and shipping all-in-one. After completing Viola's questionnaire, mood boards were designed for my fiance and I. We narrowed our idea and theme of our wedding and Viola began creating a brand for our wedding. My fiance (now husband) was a chef and I a sommelier before we both decided to go back to school. Our "brand" became a crossed spoon and fork, with "some things just belong together" as our tag-line. With Viola, we created custom save-the-dates, invitations, menus, place-cards, escort cards, table cards, well-wishes recipe cards, shuttle cards, totes, stickers for salt and pepper tins, and cookbook favors. All of the printed materials created a cohesive wedding theme that left my guests in awe. My only regret is that I don't get to work with Viola at ChewingtheCud anymore!!

After looking at wedding invitations for months, I figured I was just going to have to settle on something standard, until I saw an article that featured some amazing custom Chewing the Cud invitations and I was totally smitten.
From the moment I called to discuss my options, Viola was a dream to work with. She was easy to talk to and incredibly conscientious. It really was one of my favorite parts of my wedding planning process.
Everyone raved about how beautiful and original the invitations were. If I wasn't working on such a tight budget, I would've had her design everything. Compared to the ones you find in stationary stores, Chewing the Cud invitations might seem expensive at first, but you get much more than you pay for. The quality of the product and her style, both artistically and professionally, is worth every penny.
I'm not a relative, coworker or old friend of Viola's, I'm just a truly satisfied customer. She deserves a 5 star review because that's the kind of work she does.

Chewing the cud did a fabulous job in designing our wedding invitation. We love all the designs by chewing the cud as they have distinct characteristics that set them apart from other invitation makers. Its design is simple and classy with just the right amount of details. Not too much, but just enough to make a lasting impression to the viewer. The materials used are of the best quality and we love the fact that they're environmentally friendly. Most importantly the prices are very reasonable given the quality of work that goes into its personalized invitations. So many people asked us where we did our wedding invitation and we gladly recommend them to check out chewing the cud.
