STEP 1: LETS TALK, EMAIL & FACETIME!
STEP 2: COLLABORATE TO CREATE YOUR AESTHETIC
After designing my own wedding, I realized how hard it was to find custom designed products for weddings. Everything seemed formulaic and designed to appeal to the masses. Or, if it was custom, it seemed like an intimidating and confusing process! My ongoing hope is that Wouldn't it be Lovely can fix that by creating unique and compelling designs that are fun, for both myself as the designer, and you as the client to create!
What is it?
STEP 3: CREATING & EDITING DIGITAL PROOFS
Wouldn't it be Lovely is all about customization. You may need your wedding paper goods designed from top to bottom, or perhaps you just want a custom sign for your wedding day. At Wouldn't it be Lovely, there is no need to big or too small. Some of the most common event design elements are: save the dates, invitation suites, escort card displays, photo backdrops, art installations, favor labels, programs, signage, and announcements. I don't work from templates, so anything is possible! We can personalize an existing design, or create something completely new for you and your event.
How does it work?
It starts with an email. You may know exactly what you want and we can work together to make that vision a reality. The more common situation however, is that you know want something special and unique, made especially for you, but you aren't really sure what that is! This is when the fun starts! We talk, I learn about you, what you want your design to feel like, what you like, what you hate, what's most important to you, what elements you'll need, and how much you'd like to spend. It's a design diagnostic! Then we pull together inspiration and share those images and ideas. After I have a clear idea of what you need, I put together digital proofs. It's a collaborative process, and we go back and forth on the design which means you'll always end up with exactly what you want and more than you could have imagined. There isn't a formula, because people don't fit into perfect little boxes, that's the beauty of it!
Or perhaps there's an existing design that I've created for another couple that you already love. We can personalize it for you, from wording, to colors, to the layout and more to make it fit your event even to a tee!
You may have a wedding planner, a caterer and florist already picked out, I can work with you and your other vendors to ensure your event comes together seamlessly!
Take a look at the site, see what has been created for other couples, families, and celebrations. These past events and designs will help give you an idea of what can be done, but don't let what you see, or don't see hold you back. Anything is possible.
STEP 4: PRODUCTION & FINISHING TOUCHES!
If you want a completely custom design, planning ahead is always the best bet! I only take on so many custom designs per season as I like to give every client my very best work! For custom design, you should always try to start the process at least 1 month before you would like to send out your custom design, but during peak seasons, the earlier the better as I do get fully booked at certain times of year. We start off the design process by gathering inspiration and information. You can expect your first proof about one month before our agreed upon send out date, and then we have plenty of time to edit them until they are just right! From the date that you approve your final digital mock up, the typical production time is about 2 weeks.
Great if you're on a SHORT TIMELINE.... If there's a design I've created for a previous client that fits your needs, we can personalize it for your day. We can change colors of the print and papers(in most cases), wording, and sometimes we can even combine two existing designs to create a perfect new one. This timeline is faster than the custom route and when we're not reinventing the wheel, I can be much more flexible with fitting you into a booked schedule and getting out your design ASAP. From start to finish, your personalized design can be at your door in as soon as 2-3 weeks depending on the design & production processes and the booking schedule.
