Wynne was such a pleasure to work with! She designed the save the dates, wedding invitations and wedding programs for my daughter's wedding and all were beautiful. Wynne is very responsive, creative and helpful and always so pleasant and courteous.

As many of you know, the wedding planning process involves a lot of compromising, which isn't always fun.... but that is life. However, my save-the-dates and invitations are one place where I got exactly, 100% what I wanted.

Wynne helped me along the way and I could not have done it without her! We started the process looking at books for inspiration, and she really took the time to get to know me and learn about my wedding, and also what was realistic design-wise and budget-wise. She then created something completely unique, that people are still commenting on.

My favorite part was the custom envelope liners that she designed... I'm getting married on Martha's Vineyard and she created a liner that looks like a Vineyard Vines pattern.

She spent so much time helping me figure out what I like, and don't like, made sure that I chose an appropriate size so my postage rates would not be astronomical, and helped me hand assemble 250 cards. I'm so thankful about the finished product-- it really set the tone for my entire wedding.

I would highly recommend Inviting Affairs to any bride who wants sincere service, out-of-the-box thinking and gorgeous paper goods!

Inviting Affairs created the invitations for our rehearsal dinner on Lady Bird Lake. Michelle, the owner, created a beautiful design for the invitation with the Austin and New York City (where my wife and I met) skylines in the background and two boats in the foreground. Michelle worked with me to make sure that we were able to get letterpress invitations with a very quick turnaround time. Michelle was a pleasure to work with and she was happy to make several adjustments (in short order) to the proof to make sure I was happy with the final product. Thank you Michelle, and I recommend Inviting Affairs as an excellent option for your invitation needs.

Wynne at Inviting Affairs was so great to work with! She helped me out so much with getting our invitations designed quickly with our short engagement. Our "Smock" letterpress invitations were such a hit. All my friends commented on how pretty they were. Wynne was always so responsive and helpful! Next invitations to get will be baby shower stuff...I will definitely go back.

I wasn't going to review this vendor but decided I should express my disappointment and frustration I had to experience. I am not saying this will happen to you but it did happen to me.

I was an out of town bride and drove to Austin to get my invitations made with Inviting Affairs. Our first visit was fantastic and our Save the Dates came out very nice. They were the post card kind so it wasn't very hard or detailed. Moving on to when it was time to get our invitations started is a whole other story. They assured me everything could be done via email so I wouldn't have to make trips to Austin. Communication was horrible through email. My first email I sent on April 19th was not answered and I was being patient and had to send a follow up email on May 8th when it was finally answered. To get a simple proof took 2 weeks after I had been waiting since April 19th. For the price I was paying the proof looked like something I could have made in Word. I was very disappointed and felt very uncomfortable with them to continue with my wedding invitations. I had already put down a non-refundable deposit and was willing to lose it due to lack of service and quality. It was not a little deposit either. Once I notified that I would not continue the owner finally emails me to offer a 15% discount for my troubles. It was a little too late at that point and really I think she should have refunded that deposit since they did nothing. I did get my invitations from another place from Atlanta, GA - my proof was sent promptly in 2 days and they actually were better then Inviting Affairs.

Inviting Affairs responded with the following comments:

Hi Tricia, Thank you so much for your additional feedback. I am concerned that you are still so upset from the process. As I explained before I am so sorry about the delayed communications but as I mentioned we never got your first email and we apologize for that. While it is rare we do not receive emails this was one of those times. I do know that once we received your second email we got you a proof ASAP. Our custom invitation design can take some time since we are started from the beginning and creating a whole new invitation personally just for you. I was very sorry the design was not what you were looking for the first time but in our design process it usually takes a couple of proofs to get the design just right. We did have options to pick invitations from hundred of our books that we could have gotten a proof much faster and the design would be what you saw in the book. I am sorry if this was not shown as a option for you. I did offer to do your design personally so you would be happy with the final product and a 15% discount. I know you decided to go somewhere else and I am sorry you needed to do that. We had already started the work for you and I am sorry we could not finish it with you. I wish you all the best.

We worked with Inviting Affairs to create our wedding invitations. They turned out beautifully and the two-person staff was plenty nice. The only downside is that they don't have much seating, and each time we went in it was quite cramped. Also, I didn't find the person who helped us with our invitations to be too helpful when I asked her for wording recommendations, but it's not too big of a deal as I guess it's all up to personal preference in the end anyways. Comparatively, too, with the other places I looked at for our invitations, the staff at every place seemed to be not too helpful other than to pull out the invitation sample books for customers and write out the receipts.

I can not say enough good things about this shop. First of all it is the cutest store I have ever been in and I loved their selection of gifts. Pass all of that (if you can pass all it) is an amazing selection of wedding invitations. It took some time but we found the perfect invitation. We thought we wanted one thing but we really wanted something else and they helped us to realize that. The whole process was smooth and loved the final product. We also got our programs and reception cards there and everything was affordable and amazing quality.
