process

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


One-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 with the Whimsique team.

If you think we may be a good match, you can schedule a personal planning consultation with Whimsique’s Creative Director, Melissa. In this session you will get to share your vision and style so we can begin the process of crafting your perfect design. We conduct virtual sessions via Skype, 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 Southern California clientele are warmly welcomed to join us for an in-person consultation.

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 2 months before they need to be sent, and your Invitations 5 months before they need to be mailed.

Two-2

the costs

You will receive a customized quote based on your selections shortly after your consultation. To proceed with design and production, a non-refundable deposit 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 around $5,000. This minimum must be, and does not include add-on products such as Save-the-Dates, Stationery, etc. If you need anything “rushed” – which is anything completed in 21 days or less – a rush fee of 20% of your total order is charged to compensate for the added cost of rush shipping, printing, etc.

Three-3

design

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

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

Four-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.
