The Process

Occasions is in tune with a very techno savvy group of brides.  We also understand that brides like to shop, I love to shop.  We know it can be overwhelming to go to an internet site to look at invitations but the only thing lacking is that tactile thing…we like to touch, we like to feel the paper, we want to see what it looks like in person, but you can’t do that on an internet site!  That is why you are choosing Occasions to be a part of your wedding planning process.  The invitation is that one piece of written communication that conveys a sincere message to your guests…”this is a very important event and we can’t wait for you to be a part of our special day.”  

The Details

Appointments

Occasions meets with clients by appointment only.   This assures 100% focus on our client needs. 

  • Reserve your appointment well in advance of your event date.  We suggest 6 months in advance.   We offer the convenience of an on-line scheduler, or you can email us or contact us by telephone to set up your appointment.  

  • Plan on blocking out 2 hours of time for your scheduled appointment. 

  • Complete our Pre-appointment Questionnaire prior to your appointment.  This gives a first glance at what your wedding day is all about, what you have planned so far, color preference, theme, venue, etc.

  • Prior to our first meeting we will send you a confirmation email. 

  • If you have ideas that have inspired you, please bring them to our first meeting or email them to me prior to our meeting.  That will help me understand your vision.

  • Occasions can accommodate eleventh hour orders; however, you may be limited in the amount of customization if timing becomes an issue.

Budget

  • We offer exceptional lines of invitations.  We will work with our clients to meet their budget requirements as closely as possible.  Typically, different printing methods can be utilized with other alternatives to reduce your cost.

  • Occasions does require a modest consultation fee of $30.00. This fee is credited towards orders placed within 10 business-days of consultation.

  • Before the invitation project is begun, we do require a deposit and a signed contract.

  • We do require proofing of all elements of your invitation; this assures perfection of the printed product and allows you to make any last minute changes before we go to print.

 

Your invitation is an individual piece of artwork and a snap shot of your personalities and the event…that is priceless.

The Other Details

  • Guest count – remember, generally you should order half + 25  of your guest list. 

  • Ceremony location and time

  • Reception venue

  • Lodging information for guests

  • Consider day of paper goods such as programs, menu cards, table cards, seating charts, etc.

Production Time

encompasses many factors, not just print time. For instance, 2 color invitations means two passes in the print press depending on the print method used. Special order of paper impacts timing, the actual assembly of your invitation such as installing layers to cards, liners to envelopes, ribbon installation, etc., to make your ensemble complete.
