Scheduling a consultation with your stationery designer is a great opportunity to meet and discuss your vision for your custom invitation. Though the stationery designer is a professional, unless they moonlight as a psychic, they can't read your mind. So though they are quite confident they can design what you want, you must first have an idea of what you want.
While waiting for your appointment or before scheduling the consultation, do a little research.
Find no more than 3 or 4 invitations that catch your eye, that you think are beautiful. Professional stationery designers are true creatives, and should never copy other's work. But selecting a few invitations, gives the designer a starting point and an idea about your personal style.
Jot down a few notes/adjectives that explain/describe why you like those invitations. You don't have to like every detail about the individual invitations you find. For instance if you pick three (3) for inspiration, you may like different elements from each one to combine to make the perfect invitation for your day. Share those details during the consultation with the stationery designer.
Communication is key. When you’re at your consultation, communicate those adjectives to help with the design of your custom invitation. Be specific and descriptive as you possibly can. It will definitely decrease the time it takes in designing which means a quicker turnaround time and quicker mailing of your invitations.
