Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about working with me? Here are some that are frequently asked. If you still have questions after reading these,  feel free to send me an email at hello@amourdaydreamstudio.com

We love your work but are not local, will you still work with us?

Yes! I love working with couples all over the world. We can do the initial intake online, phone or zoom. All of my couples will receive an online portal so you can see your beautiful proofs where ever you are. Once complete I will send you all your pieces.

When should I contact you about creating my wedding invitations?

The sooner the better! But about 8 months before your wedding date to have enough time for design and production. Keep in mind I only take on so many couples each year, so please reach out as soon as you can so I can put you into my design calendar!

What's your design process?

You can read all about the custom design process here!

How long does the process take for custom wedding invitations?

Design and production can take about 3-5 months, recommend reaching out as soon as you can.

How much do custom stationery cost?

The average couple that works with me spends between $2,000 - $6,000 for all their stationery needs. This is typically about 6-8% of your wedding budget.

Can you create our menus, place cards, table numbers and other day of items?

Yes! Yes! And yes! I do all day of stationery and items. If you can dream it I'll make it happen! From favor tags to large signs! Love bringing your invitation design into your event so everything is cohesive.

We have no idea what we want, can you help us?

Happily! Designing an invitation to fit your wedding style and personalities is what I do best! Once I get to know you, your colors, all about your wedding I will put together a lookbook that will include a mood board, colors, and 2-3 sketches of potential invitation designs. From there I will work on any illustrations and bring the design to life!

Do you design for other events other than weddings?

Absolutely! I love to create for all types of events and occasions like galas, showers, graduations, birth announcements, birthdays, and more!

When should we mail our save the dates and invitations?

Save the dates should be sent anywhere from 6-12 months before your wedding, I always recommend sending them around 10 months. Invitations should be mailed 8-12 weeks before your wedding.

How much postage will we need?

This ranges per suite, but I will help calculate the amount is needed. If you are mailing them, I recommend you bring a full suite to your local post office to help confirm.

Would you be able to assemble and mail our invites?

Absolutely! Full assembly and mailing to your guests are an optional add-on, but would be happy to take that stress off your hands!

Can I see samples?

If you are local to Berwick, Maine or in the general Seacoast NH/ME I would love to set up a coffee date (or tea!) to show you some samples, paper choices, and talk about your vision.

Not local? Don't worry - I have a sample pack for sale here. Best part? If you decide to book with me, I will put this towards your order! So no wasted money!

Can I see the custom design before I pay or sign the contract?

Unfortunately, no. In order for me to start creating something from scratch for each couple I require a 50% non-refundable retainer and a signed contract.

Do you have pre-designed invitations we can choose from?

Yes! You can view my collection here
