Real Wedding- Anne Marie's

I had the pleasure of working with an amazing bride for the past year. I got to work on almost all of her paper products. We did Save the Dates, Invitations, Favor Card, Monogram Squares (she made her own programs, I just printed the squares) and Menus.

Her color scheme was antique gold, chocolate and eggplant. Absolutely beautiful rich colors. Her photographer took the following pictures which are absolutely amazing:

Timeline for your Paper Needs

I read all different blogs throughout the day and the Wedding Aces one is one of my favorites becuase it gives brides the information they really need to know, other than just inspiriational pictures.

This article is a great tool for any bride planning their paper needs for their wedding. There is a lot of time that goes into your product that is not included in the assembly time.

Cake Toppers

For those who care to follow, I have a blog for my ideas for our wedding:

I just updated it with my version of the crystal cake topper.

I made one with rhinestones and we both didn't like it, it looked like it wasn't complete. Then I decided to do it glitter and we absolutely love it.

I can make one for you for $45 plus $10 for shipping. Process time takes 2 weeks to complete. Glitter used is Martha Stewart.

Ignore the Niner Cheerleader calendar in the background... that would be my lovely Fiance's!

Janell- Reception Pieces

I have been lucky enough to work with Janell on multiple occasions. Her invitations were the one of a kind accordian invites which were the first I have ever made! We decided to tie in her design and colors through her reception pieces. I made table numbers, escort cards, favor cards, bathroom basket cards and Menus!

Hopefully her photographer will catch some good pictures of all of the pieces at her wedding on Saturday!
Any former brides who are reading this! Please send me pictures of the final products, I am willing to pay your photographer for the images!!!

Jaimie's Menu

Jaimie wanted me to change her menu design. She had a completely different design for her invites before so now we are changing everything to go with the graphic on her invites.

Jaimie & John's Invites

I have been helping Jaimie for about a year on all of her wedding products. She comes to me with the idea and I help her make the final product. These design ideas are compeletly hers so I can't take any credit other than font choices on the invites! She came to me with the awesome design!!

Anne Marie's Invites

Her colors are brown gold and ivory. We did four inserts, Directions, Accomodations, Response and Reception. All is kept together by a belly band acting as an inner envelope. I learned a lesson while doing these invites.... my printer does not work on A9 envelopes, it refuses to print on them. I was able to trick it into printing on the fronts but when I tried to do the backs it either took off the ink off the front or jammed.

Wedding Wire Review- Janell

"I must say that Stella Bella Invites was my favorite vendor by far. The owner, Christine, is one of the most creative people I've ever met. She was so quick to respond to my emails, concerns and questions and really gave me a lot of ideas that help me pinpoint exactly what I wanted. She helped me create such a beautiful, unique and timeless wedding invitation. I am still getting emails about how great they looked and how everyone is saving it because its soo pretty.Her prices are so reasonable and her attention to detail is astounding. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. I'm encouraging all my friends to use her for at least some aspects of their wedding planning whether it be invitations, programs, menus or table numbers, etc.. "
Thank you Janell for the amazing review. It was such a pleasure to design these invites becuase they were truly unique. We went through so many designs and types to get the perfect invitation for her and her groom. In September/October I will post her table numbers, seating chart, programs and OOT Stickers.
Thank you once again!!

Seating Chart- Vu

The bride contacted me after a recommendation by Nicole at Pink Design. We incorporated her monogram that Nicole created and kept with the grey and yellow tones. This is one of 5 different color schemes that I sent her. For those wanting seating charts the design fee is $50.

Christina- Baby Announcement

I made Christina's wedding back a couple months ago and she contacted me to design her baby announcements. She is going to be doing a red Z fold from and wanted her design to incorporate light blue and orange. She said she wanted dots, so this is my take on dots!

Alexa and Kenny's Reception Details

Alexa and Kenny will be getting married on beautiful cape cod this Labor Day weekend. Their colors are deep red and brown.
For the table escort cards we used three colors, brown was fish, red was meat and cream was vegetarian.
Not sure why my camera made it blurry but these will be tied to their favors!

Janell's Final Invitations

I absolutely loved these invitations. They were my first accordian invites and were a lot of work. I personally think they came out amazing. I used a sapphire folded layer, with quartz printed layers. The outside "jackets" were envelopperinc venezia print in lilac/quartz. Her envelopes were lilac with a deep purple ink.
