It’s time for our newest Vendor of the Week! This week we’re on to an invitation designer, Caroline Creates! Based out of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Caroline also works with couples from all over- no need to be local to her! That’s the beauty of having custom invitations done- you can use whoever you want! :) Now let’s take a look at her work and get to know her, shall we?
Why do you see yourself as being Modern, Vintage, Classic, or Eclectic?
I see myself as eclectic because I’ve worked with many types of brides and have designed many different styles of wedding stationery. I’ve worked with traditional brides having church weddings to rockabilly outdoor weddings and everything in between!
What is your favorite wedding detail you’ve ever seen or created?
I love seeing paper used in unique and unexpected ways at weddings and events. I recently did the stationery for a wedding where I cut luggage style tags out of different types of paper that coordinated with the original wedding suite. Guests were asked to write messages to the bride and groom and then they were hung on a tree. So unique and something that people will remember.
What is your favorite store or brand?
Put me in any paper store and I’m a happy girl! I could literally look at paper all day.
What advice do you have for a newly engaged bride?
Don’t put so much emphasis on the day and really follow your heart when planning your wedding. I think brides become so consumed in the planning of it all and forget to focus on why they are there in the first place. Also, the wedding should be a reflection of you. You don’t want to look back at pictures 5 years later and say “that wasn’t us at all!” I always try to emphasize this to my brides when we meet. Your wedding should be a reflection you and your love for each other.
What is your favorite thing about weddings?
Love! It’s what they are all about and I can’t get enough of it. Nothing makes me happier than to see two people so in love and helping them with their big day. It really makes what I do so worthwhile.
What qualities do you possess that enable you to work well with brides and grooms?
I’m a great listener and I really do try to get to know my clients and what they are planning for their big day. This helps so much with the design process. Often times, I find myself walking my brides through other areas in their wedding. Working on invitations, programs, table cards, etc. tends to do that and I think brides really appreciate that they can come to me for help.
What steps do you take to ensure that your clients will have amazing wedding days when working with you?
Communication with my brides is key and building that trust is so important so they know that when their stationery arrives, it’s exactly what they asked for. My job is to make the paper part of their wedding as stress free as possible!
