Working in the wedding industry has taught me many things. Probably one of the most important is that things don’t always go to plan. This is something that Jessica and Andrew discovered just before their wedding back in March (read on for details).
What I know is that when hiccups happen, the difference between something small becoming a disaster or coming out the other side unscathed has a lot to do with the people you choose to work with. If you’re looking for vendors for your wedding, make sure you take your time and choose wisely. Professional, experienced people will always know what to do in a wedding emergency!
Thank you for choosing us, Jessica and Andrew! We loved working with you and wish you a lifetime of happiness. xoxo
On choosing Lala Design | Paper & Ink Studio for their wedding stationery. ‘I chose Lala Design | Paper & Ink Studio after having heard of them from a friend. We first used them for our engagement invitations, which were all organised online. After seeing the quality of the invitations and the wonderful service we received (quick email responses, friendly face when we picked them up), there was no doubt that we would use them for all our wedding stationery.’
"We did have some ideas of what we liked, but once we met with Lala Design | Paper & Ink Studio, they gave us other ideas and samples to help create our vision."
Jessica’s favourite part of the process. ‘The best part of the design process is actually getting to meet with Lala. Meeting with an actual person (rather than just doing everything online) makes the process so much more personal. The team was truly a dream to work with. They send detailed emails throughout the process and made changes along the way without a fuss.’
"Lala Design | Paper & Ink Studio are so thorough and pay attention to every detail – from the font, sizing, whether the letters are bolded or not, nothing is too much for the team. They take pride in the small details."
On seeing everything for the first time. ‘Seeing it all come together on the day was breathtaking. You put so much time and effort into the day and to see it all come together is just the best. We were in awe!’
Jessica’s advice for soon-to-be-newlyweds. ‘Everything won’t go to plan, so make sure you have a brilliant team around you. We accidentally left the name of a very important person off our seating plan. We had checked it so many times, but when you’re super busy and focused on so many things for the wedding, mistakes can happen. Luckily for us, we had the Lala Design | Paper & Ink team. They redesigned and remade our seating plan in no time. Had we ordered it online, we would have been stuck with a product we weren’t happy with.’
"Support local businesses and find people who are passionate about what they do!"
