Cathy believes in keeping her stunning work fully accessible by remaining cost-effective and utilizing eco-friendly processes and materials.
Her work is adorable and we couldn’t wait to share with you. Every party needs an invite, set the tone for your bachelorette party or bridal shower with a custom creation from Love at First Invite. Here’s a little more insight into the mind behind the art.
What’s your favorite product on your site?
Our custom invitations! We love getting inspiration from wedding day details and coming up with something completely unique!
What about your job still makes you smile?
Meeting with couples deep in love, and the smell of freshly printed or pressed paper.
What FireFly package would you pick for your bachelorette party? Model Pin up Photo shoot, love the empowerment of a beautiful Boudoir sesh!
Name 3 famous people you’d invite on your bachelorette party?
Not super into famous people, so I’d still have to say my Besties are all I’d want!
Which wedding are you: Beach, Mountain, Forest, or Countryside?
Our wedding was already beach, but if I could “do-over” it would be Countryside with all of it’s charm!
Finish this sentence: If I could give one piece of wedding advice it would be…
Resist the urge to send out your Wedding invitations too early. Giving your guests a later RSVP deadline gives your guests more time to decide. For the couple getting married, 4-5 months out may seem just around the corner – but to your guests, it may seem lightyears away, and consequently they may not know their schedules yet. Aim to send out your invitations 6-8 weeks before the wedding, with the RSVP deadline 3-4 weeks before the big day. Your guests’ answers will be more accurate and they will love you for it!
What’s your most outrageous wedding memory?
Designing custom invitations for a bride in England. It was so fun to learn all about their country and culture. And our phone conversations were a blast!
