The Papery Willow
I had been very exited to get my invitations from here because of all the great reviews. unfortunately that was not my experience. First of all i was suppossed to get 2 designs and i only got one which i had to call several times to finally get just one. After i decided to go with this company it took her longert than we had agreed on to start the invitations and a lot longer to finish them, after i received them the print was not very good quality and she gave me the roll of ribbon to cut it my self and she had to take them back becuase they were missing the rhinestones, also because my invitations were in spanish she put the wrong wording on the wrong card and wanted me to take them like that, but i gave her more time to get them fixed. I was very disappointed because i could never reach her over the phone and it took her a while to respond my emails.
The Papery Willow was fantastic!!! I would recommend The Papery Willow to anyone. The value, the product, the professionalism, the selection and the flexibility was A+. One of the best parts of my wedding planning was working with Babs (the owner) and seeing my vision come to life! The Papery Willow is very unique. Babs will sit down with you in the beginning and discuss exactly what you are looking for. She is an excellent listener and will make sure what she designs for you is exactly what you are looking for! She is extremely creative, diligent, personable and her work is FANTASTIC!!! I had a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, MX and the palm tree theme Babs came up with was FABULOUS! My invitations were so unique and beautiful I would just stare at them in admiration... that is not something you would get from a large chain print shop. It did not stop there, Babs at the Papery Willow put together my palm tree favor bags consisting of palm tree aloe bottles, spf, lip balm and palm tree themed Christmas ornaments for all my guests. Everything I received from the Papery Willow went above and beyond my expectations! There's more... Babs also carried my theme onto wine glass charms and palm tree name cards. I can't say enough about the service and attention I received from Babs. If you are looking for a unique invitation The Papery Willow is the place for you. Babs will help bring your wedding vision to life! She makes you feel like you are the only client that matters! My overall experience with The Papery Willow was PERFECT!!! Thanks again for everything Babs!!!
Babette could really teach a thing or two to other vendors about running a business! Her communication was fast and consistent, she clearly has immense knowledge about this business. She made this process so easy! Not only that, but almost every RSVP sent back to us has included a compliment on the invitation design!
During the time of my order, Babette hit what I'm sure has been one of, if not the most, difficult times of her life. Her associates handled her business in a very professional matter, and what good hands she let take over for her during that time. She has shown remarkable strength not only as a wedding vendor, but as a mother, a wife, and a woman. I would recommend her to everyone, and I will be back whenever I need an invitation order!
Vendor response to review
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, I am so pleased everyone liked your invitations, it was such a pleasure working with you. I can't wait to see pictures.
If I could describe one word for my overall experience it would be DISAPPOINTED. My menus, programs and table numbers were not as promised, and were poorly put together and wrong and delivered the day before my wedding. Please consider choosing someone else, I wish I had.
Vendor response to review
I am so sorry for this client usually I give 100% to my clients, but yes in this case I did not, I guess it is because my 12 yr old daughter passed away in a very tragic accident just a month before my clients wedding, I guess I was not quite ready to get back to work as I thought. I am sorry my client feels this way.

Tips for your Thank you notes
• Send them as quickly as possible, it is easier to do it as your gifts come in, this way you are not overwhelmed all at once.
• Make sure you make specific reference to the gift (thank you for the towel set, it will go perfect in our powder room.)
• Always send notes to the hostess after a party that was in your honor
• Remember the vendors that helped make your day special, it means a lot. (this is optional)
• Keep the notes personal, hand write them, this lets your guests know you care and are truly thankful
• When addressing your thank you notes they should be addressed to the person who signed the card.
