I can't say enough about working with Jen. She replied to all of my emails right away and made it so much fun as she got just as excited about the colors as I did. I will be using her for the placements cards as well and should I need anymore invitations, she will be my go to girl. She was an absolute joy to work with.

Words can't express how beautiful my invites were. Jennifer is an amazing person to work with. She takes so much pride in her work and it shows. I have had so many people complimenting me on our wedding invites. We did a passport style invite and it came out beyond my expectations. I have told everyone and anyone to use here for invites. Best in the area!

Jen was a dream to work with! The Purple Bride created my custom place cards and table numbers. I used literary, TV show, and movie lovers as my table numbers and for my place cards (Gatsby & Daisy, Jack & Rose, etc). Jen also created two custom signs last minute. She responded quickly, created proofs even faster, was flexible with meeting, had a great price, and gave me such an awesome product! Every bride should use her!!! This experience was great, and my guests are still commenting on how awesome everything looked!!! :)

Jen was great to work with! She went above and beyond! I told her what my vision was for our wedding invitations and she was able to make it a reality (better then envisioned)! I have received so many great compliments on the invitations. Her quality of work is outstanding.

She made it such an easy process. We will be using her for the place cards as well as the programs.

Definitely would recommend her!

Jen is AMAZING!!! She did pretty much everything "paper" for my wedding. Gift table "Thank You" sign, Guestbook sign, place cards, invitations, little Instagram cards for our favors..... Everything she did was perfect. For some of the signs i had very specific frame sizes and she made them so they fit exact! Our invitations came out amazing, people are still talking about how great they were. You can pick any paper color and pretty much design them how you want. She makes great suggestions and hand makes them all. People always want to go with the big name companies but its so much more personal (and convenient) to be able to meet with her and make them exactly how you want, for a great price! Would highly recommend her for all your wedding stationary needs! :)

I am so happy I used the Purple Bride for my bridal shower and wedding invitations. Words cannot express how wonderful Jen has been. I can say that she made my experience with picking out my invitations so much fun with no stress. The work that she does is beyond amazing! Jen is so patient and is always there to work with you! The detail in her work is incredible. She responds so quickly to emails and makes sure you understand and see how things will turn out. If there was a 10 rating on this i would so give it to her. I will never use someone else for any future invitations I might need. She will be the only person I would go to. You will not be disappointed for choosing the Purple Bride!!!!

Jen is absolutely AMAZING! ESPECIALLY even though being a relaxed but pain bride with the small details we forgot or had to fix. She was there to help with no problems at ALL:) She truly is an amazing artist and person that you WON'T be disappointed. So personable, honest and will work with your budget, which is what we needed. I was so impressed I've recommended her to quite a few people. I don't do that unless I'm truly satisfied or impressed. If you want someone that is fun, honest and does great work she's your girl!!!!:)

I cannot say enough good things about Jennifer. She goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need for your special day. She can customize anything! Working with her has been the best experience! She really takes the time to get to know each bride! You are not just another customer with her! Pricing is great! Overall out of this experience I have not only met a vendor but I have made a friend as well. I will be sure to refer her more business. She suggested things that I didnt even think of doing. Ideas are wonderful, she is kind & professional. LOVE LOVE LOVE the purple bride!! I wish more than 5 stars was an option!

I sent the owner a message on facebook with about 5 or so pictures of the invitations I liked and she was able to combine all the things I loved about each of them into one invitation. I feel like it is the ultimate invitation! She was very fast at responding and she made it so easy. She always had great suggestions and it was no hassle to change something. She is enthusiastic, loves what she does and is very talented. I know that nobody else could have done such a fantastic job!

Jen was absolutely AMAZING and created my dream bridal shower invites. I had a citrus theme, and upon meeting with her for the first time, she already came with a the cutest sample, which I fell in love with immediately. She was always very responsive in email, and she always went above and beyond my expectations. She cares for her clients, and you can tell that she loves what she does. I will definitely keep her in mind for future stationary needs. She made my invites, my table numbers, party favor tags, and table seating cards. Jen deserves the BEST rating because she was wonderful to work with, and her prices are outstanding! Thanks again Jen!!!

I'm very happy with the shower invitations done by The Purple Bride. Jen was great. She was responsive to my ideas and offered her own insight to get just what I wanted. Her prices are very, very reasonable especially considering the final product. I received lots of compliments on the invitations. We used her on the save the dates also, which also turned out great, and are using her for the invitations and other wedding related printing needs.

I used the purple bride for my bridal shower (including escort cards, ect for that event), for my wedding invites (for USA & Italy), programs for ceremony, seating chart with hidden photo collage in the background and thank you cards (photo collage style of our big day).
With each project Jen made me feel important, gave me 100% of her dedication. She listened to my ideas and gave me x10 creative awesome options. I loved how she customized every word, design, color, font, texture, patterns, ect. Also she created matching programs and announcements in Italian for my family in Italy. She also addresses all invitations, and the escort cards with name and table #.
I was referred by 2 friends (former brides) and I've given so many friends her info as well before I still have people asking..Omg, who did your invites/ect? The dedication, quality, reasonable price and reliability..is what makes the Purple Bride stand out. I feel that Jen truly cares about her clients and takes time to hear about your wedding planning and get to know your ideas, ect. She has the patience of a saint, she is truly passionate and loves her work.
Thank you Purple Bride for saving me a lot of money, headaches and many late nights!
Highly recommended by me...can't wait to work with you for the future events in my life! I will definitely be a lifelong client of the Purple Bride :-)

I LOVE LOVE my invitations from Jen, the Purple Bride. Jen was super fun and easy to work with. She doesn't mind travelling to you and the number of times to meet you, to get exactly what you want. She's very quick on email responses (super impressive during the holiday season). I provided her with a hard project of making cards with movable parts, and she came through. Jen's printing, artwork and final touches look very professional and beautiful. Everyone was super impressed with my invitations. On top of if all, guests thought I spent a fortune on the invites.

She also did my rehearsal dinner invites, programs, menus, table numbers, and place cards all to match my original invitation. Her prices are very reasonable and I would recommend her to anyone.

My first experience with the Purple Bride, was for my cherry blossom tree themed bridal shower. I absolutely loved the invitations that she created after meeting with my sister and I. Jen went above and beyond..she even created a unique recipe card, bride and groom chair cards AND designed escort cards tags to attach to each party favor. Everyone loved and complimented on everything! It's a huge peace of mind for a bride to have your invitations already beautifully addressed to your guests.
The best out there...The quality, the dedication to details, the creativity, very reliable (responds to email/calls/ect promptly)..best of all, such affordable pricing. Jen truly cares about her clients and made me feel calm during the whole planning because I trusted her work. Thank you Purple Bride!

Jen at The Purple Bride is incredible!! I found the purple bride when I was looking around online for a wedding invitation company. Being that I love purple and that purple is my main wedding color, I immediately was lured into the name!! Once i reached out to "The Purple Bride" through the website, Jen got back to me right away and was so energetic, responsive and patient...really gave me a great impression right from the start. Once i started working with Jen I realized that her attention to detail and customer service was like none i have ever dealt with during my wedding process. Jen was so patient and really worked with me from start to finish to make my vision really come to life. I ordered my invitations and just received them in the mail and i cannot even describe how much i love them!!! The prices are really reasonable and the quality is just amazing! I have received about 5 samples from other vendors before finding the purple bride and nothing even came close to the quality of the work, attention to detail and most of all creativity that you will get with the purple bride!
I decided to do my place cards, wedding programs and thank you cards all from the purple bride! She definitely thinks outside of the box and that is something that you just do not find with the larger cookie cutter vendors out there. I am so happy and really looking forward to the rest of my wedding stationary from The Purple Bride!!

If I could give 10 stars I would because all my expectations were exceeded!!!

I am not the most creative person and Jennifer was so great at understanding what our concept was and fed off of it immediately. We received so many compliments on how fancy our invites were. She also did our Programs and helped with the design for our photobooth strips. She was so amazing. I still can't believe how affordable she was.
She also referred me to an awesome makeup artist who did an excellent job as well. Jennifer truly understands the importance of having the perfect wedding. I already sent 2 referrals her way that have hired her on.

I needed invitations for a baby shower for our boss. I had looked at The Purple Bride's site and noted that it was not just for weddings. When I contacted her, I already had an invitation design (one of hers) in mind. After giving her the info and style I was looking for she made some innovative suggestions on how to personalize them. She was extremely flexible when there was a last minute change. I got them when I needed them at a more than fair price. I received a lot of great comments when they were handed out and I noticed the other day that several co-workers have kept them and put them on their walls. No greater compliment can be given when people can't bear to throw out your artwork. Any event I have in the future she's my first stop.
