process

From concept to completion, Whimsíque offers a stress-free luxury experience through our simple 4-step process. For questions and inquiries, contact us at hello@whimsique.com.


1.

Consultation

Share your vision for your big day with us and see how we may be able to serve you with an informal introductory call. We will then follow up with a scheduled personal planning consultation where we will dive deeper into your vision and style so we can begin the process of crafting your perfect design.We conduct virtual sessions via Zoom, FaceTime, or over-the-phone, and you can request a follow up style kit with swatches and print samples to see, touch, and review. All clientele are warmly welcomed for an in-person consultation should you be in town.

As a follow-up to your consultation, you will receive a production timeline to ensure you’ll be able to get all of your materials out on time. As best practice, we suggest starting save the dates at least 3 months before they need to be sent, and your invitations at least 6 months before they need to be mailed.

2.

Investment

You will receive a customized proposal based on your selections shortly after your consultation. To proceed with design and production, a non-refundable retainer of 50% is required. The final 50% is due at the time of production.

Whimsique’s custom invitation suites start at $2,000 (before tax) but our average client spends $5,000 or more. This minimum must be met, and does not include add-on products such as Save-the-Dates and day of Stationery. If you need anything rushed, which is anything completed in 21 days or less – a rush fee of 20% of your total order is added to compensate for the additional expense.

3.

Design

Our goal is for you to LOVE your stationery. You will receive a digital version of your custom invitation suite design to review. Unlike many companies, we do not limit the amount of design revisions. We’ll work until it’s perfect.

You may request a single print sample prior to production (time permitting) for a small fee.

4.

Production

To kick off production, you will need to provide your final invitation count and then we patiently wait for the print magic to take place. Most suites take an average of 3 to 6 weeks to produce, depending on the type of printing and materials.

Once production is complete, your invitations will be delivered to you for mailing or we can assemble and send out for you for an additional fee.
