Treasia ia a warm, personable, creative human being who delivers a top-quality product. Her designs are all handcrafted with attention to detail. Southern Belle has something for every personality and taste...formal, whimsical, you name it. In a fast-paced, often lackadaisacal society, it is refreshing to still be able to find a service that provides that personal touch that lovingly reflects the customer. I highly recommend Southern Belle...you won't be disappointed!
Would reccommend Southern Belle Invitations to everyone! Courteous and prompt with return calls and her work is unbelieveable!

The invites are just amazing and they are so creative; you can choose ones she already has or she will work with you to create one that is all your own. The attention she pays to detail is very impressive, I would highly recommend this vendor.
I found Treasia's site while a member of a wedding fourm; I was very impressed with the quality of her invites, and how much respect she showed the brides when they asked questions. I wish her site had been up and running when I had gotten married; I would have had so many choices to choose from and they are so neat. While I have never ordered from her; I have heard and read what bride who have ordered from her, they have nothing but positives things to say about her.
Treasia and I met through a wedding site and although we are located far apart geographically, we quickly became friends through email, IM and finally by telephone. When Treasia started her business, I encouraged her, gave her suggestions, links etc. I was so impressed with her products that I asked her if she wanted to collaborate with us on a signature platter/invitation package. I am happy to say that she took us up on the idea. I have also ordered from her company and highly recommend them. Her attention to detail is wonderful and her customer service is even better!

Choosing your wedding invitation ensemble
Your wedding invitations are the first thing your guest will see with regards to your special day.
Choosing them will be a very important part of the marriage process. Choose with style and
great care. Ask yourself?, what do you want your guests impression to be of your big day?
What do you want to express to them with regards to it? Express yourself and your fiance
through your invitations.
First off you need to make your guest list. This will be to determine how many invitations
should be ordered. You would be wise to order an additional 25 - 50 invitations over the
amount of guests you have listed on your guest list. You should count every couple and single
guest, parents, clergy and also their guests. All children over 16 should also receive an
invitation. Give yourself plenty of time as well as the designer you have chosen. Your
invitations should be ordered well in advance give or take four to six months. This will ensure
less stress for you in the long run.
The invitation should be chosen carefully and thoughtfully, as it will give the perspective guests
a brief preview of what to expect of the wedding. Selecting the right materials to use whether
it's the paper, style, wording or font all add to the important process of planning the perfect
Secondly your theme and colours of the wedding should be incorporated into the final design,
whether you decide on a more traditional approach or a more unique and contemporary
design it should compliment your own personal tastes. Many more brides today are choosing
to go with the more unique invitations as a way of self expression. Once upon a time pure
white and cream were traditionally used, now there is no limit on the colours and designs
being included on wedding invitations. Flowers and bells are extremely common yet always
the favorite for couples who wish for their wedding invitations to be as elaborate as possible.
Now brides have a choice of more color styles, font styles and paper options. Choose with
care. Is your wedding going to be timelessly tradtional and formal, or comtemporary and
unique? Whatever your style make it your expression of your wedding day.
Thirdly. Choose your font style, text style and color. Old English and Roman Capitals are
were once favored for effectiveness and clarity, now it is almost limitless as to your options.
There are hundreds of font styles to choose from. Make sure it matches your invitation theme.
For instance, you wouldn't want an informal outdoors wedding invitation to depict French
Script or say, Wedding Text script. Make sure the two work well together. Ink color should
also match the basic design or the border color as well. Wedding invitations should generally
consist of 10 - 14 lines. If they exceed this then the font chosen should be less elaborate but if
there is not much wording then fill the invitation with a different font style. Make it a full bodied
font. There are even more numerous types of embellishments one can add to their invitations
as well. Many brides opt for ribbons, pictures of the bride and groom, crystals and many
more. Express yourselves through your invitations.
Fourth, choosing your wedding invitation wording. Do you want to add both sets of parents to
the wording? Would you like it to have a poem added before the invite wording? Something
else to consider is this. If you have children are you planning on them being in the wedding? If
so you might would like to add their names to the invitation as well. More weddng invitation
experts should be able to provide you with this type of wording. I have seen more and more
invites (as well as designed them myself) by incorporating the children's name into them.
Especially if you and your groom plan on having the children light the unity candles, do sand
ceremonies and such.
Fifth, ask your wedding invitations vendor for references. Why you ask? No one is perfect!!
This will provide you with a better peace of mind that you are choosing the right person for the
job. Brides love to talk about their weddings, so ask them how the printer done. Did they
provide your invitations timely as was stated to them? Were there any grammar errors?
Were they pleasant to deal with? Did they provide them with several options to choose from?
Does your invitations person provide you with a picture of your invitation to check for errors?
Do they mail you one for this to be checked? Which would you prefer? If it is a reputable
invitations expert they should be happy to provide you with references and any information you
should request. They should also provide this to you in a timely manner.
Lastly, try to order your invitation sets well in advance. Most invitation designers would prefer
about 4 - 6 months of time. If at all possible allow them this. Your invitations should be mailed
out to your guests about 4 - 6 weeks prior to your wedding day. This allows time for your
guests to make any arrangements needed to attend your wedding. If you are inviting guests
from out of town or out of state, it might be a good idea to mail their invites out about 8 weeks
Enjoy your time choosing the perfect wedding invitations ensemble. Your invitations person
should make this as stress free for you as possible. Remember to express yourself and your
day through your invitations. And always remember that if you allow yourself plenty of time for
choosing the perfect invite, that you have also managed to make this part of your wedding
planning process less stressful and more enjoyable for yourself as well as your future husband.
Wishing each bride to be a wonderful and happy shopping experience
