I last minute ordered my place cards and table numbers from Meghan and she was willing to work with me. Not only did she provide me with beautiful place cards and table numbers, but she was so pleasant to work with and really went the extra mile to make sure I had everything for our big day! I highly recommend her work to anyone and everyone! They were beautiful.

Meghan was like a friend to my daughter and I! From the minute we walked in, we felt relaxed and she guided us along the way. She showed us some sample work, and then took what we liked from the many options and put them together to create a personal design for us. This made us feel like we were special! There was a glitch with the paper and Meghan's immediate resolution to the situation was most impressive. She has an excellent work ethic and I look forward to working with her again!!!

Meghan did the programs for my wedding and it was beautiful.
I had a traditional English version and a full translate ceremony to Portuguese in my Portuguese version... she put together in such a nice way.
She was great to work with and I felt confident since the begining that everything will work out perfectly as it happened!!!

Great person, great work, and a good price for the excelent job.

Design the Date created beautifully unique programs and invitations for our October 5th wedding. Meghan was so easy to work with and always got back to me quickly by e-mail if I had a question or needed something changed. She also did a great job of listening to my ideas regarding design and then turned into something better than I could have imagined. Her prices were also extremely reasonable and very affordable. I would definitely recommend Design the Date to any bride.

Meg was great! She was quick to respond to emails and worked to ensure every design was exactly as we wanted...no matter how many edits it took! We got all of our stationary items from her..invites, programs, escort cards, thank you notes for place settings...they all turned out amazing and guests were very impressed by the quality. She gave us different price options and came up with different designs to show us within different prices. I think the value for the quality we got was great! Look forward to getting our thank you cards from her as well!

Meghan made us feel very comfortable with her quality of work. She did everything in a timely manner and was very easy to work with. Our invitations were beautiful but were simple in design. We are simple people so this was perfect for us. I'm confident Meghan could provide very complex invitation designs for someone looking for that.

We gathered many examples, and Design the Date took our examples and created a beautiful work that reflected our taste, colours, 'feel', etc...of our wedding.

Meghan was good to work with. She was very patient and I really appreciated her going the extra mile to do things like hand deliver invites, programs, proofs, etc. She is creative but also willing to make whatever changes are requested. She is newer to the business so there were some circumstances in which she lacked experience (like triple checking proofs for grammer--nothing major). Would recommend!

Meg designed my invitations and my programs. She was AWESOME to work with! She made everything so easy!

Even though she is out of state, we communicated via email. I gave her my vision and she sent me designs. She is open to feedback of any kind, so after some feedback, we arrived at the perfect design! I love my invitations!

Meg then carried that design over to my programs. I requested a crossword on my programs, since my husband and I love doing the sunday crossword, and she made one that was personalized.

I looked online for invitations before going to her, and I was blown away at how quickly the price added up. Meg is very cost effective and she will offer her expert opinion so that you can keep your cost down, if you need to! Meg is the best!

You can give your own ideas on designs and have Meghan implement it, or you can give some very general guidance and let Meghan use her expertise to come up with a beautiful design! She did our invitation sets, table numbers, seating chart, programs, and thank you cards. Everything was absolutely beautiful, and very affordable! I would recommend Design the Date to anyone who needs wedding invitations, programs, etc.

Meghan and Design the Date were a delight to work with! I initially asked Meghan to design my invitations, and I loved her work and simply working with her that I asked her to do my thank you cards, table numbers, programs, and stickers! From the beginning, Meghan provided a number of different layouts for my programs - allowing me to choose exactly what I was looking for. From there, she provided a number of different design options for me and then we worked together to create the perfect design. For a personalized design, you can't beat the cost! Meghan was always willing to work within my budget. I would highly recommend Meghan and Design the Date to anyone who is looking for unique wedding stationary! My only regret is that I didn't find her before I ordered my save the dates!

Working with Meg was SO easy and affordable! She does high quality work, which is what you want for a wedding invitation. I gave Meg my initial ideas of how I wanted my invite to look, and she put together a design set. She takes any and all feedback willingly and is prompt in her responses back to you. I am so happy to have Meg's expertise on this project; it was a daunting task, but she made it really easy!!

We live in different cities, but no worries! She emailed my design to a local printer of my choice. That way I can pick it up in town and assemble it myself. This was really affordable for a bride on the budget! She also offers to put the invitation set together and send it to you all completed. Meg does it all- Save the Dates, wedding programs, thank you cards, announcements. I highly recommend Meg to future brides!

My wife and I were at our wits end while planning for our wedding. Living in Chicago, I was worried about challenges that may arise in working with a company in Ohio. She didn’t consider it a problem, and we were able to communicate our ideas effectively through email. We entrusted MegE Design with the creation of our wedding invitations, and she exceeded our expectations. Being newly-weds, we didn't have a huge budget to work with. Meghan delivered a 5 star product with a 3 star price tag.

Working with Meghan was a wonderful experience. She is talented, professional, and great to work with! Meghan went out of her way to ensure our save the dates, invitations, wedding programs, and monogrammed napkins were exactly what I envisioned for my special day. I was overjoyed with the service she provided and would recommend her to any family member or friend!
