Floral Wedding Invitations, Personal Stationery and Gifts, all Created for Your Special Moments

Hey, friend! I'm Valerie, and I quit my dream job at a women’s magazine to start a floral wedding invitation shop and wedding stationery company, specializing in personal stationery and gifts for all of life's special occasions. This is my story.

Yep–you read that right. I quit my dream job working for an editor who was a former stylist for celebrities like Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson and even taught Rachel Zoe a thing or two.

Meanwhile, I had a little Etsy shop on the side. After creating stationery for my own wedding, everyone from my mom to my wedding planner encouraged me to start my own business.

So, I developed a floral wedding invitation line that weaves in the classic look southern brides love with gorgeous watercolor flowers, giving clients heirloom wedding stationery that’s both whimsical and timeless.

I balanced both jobs for two years—but eventually, I felt God calling me in a different direction. My side job as a wedding stationer was incredibly fulfilling. I love telling brides all the things I wish I had known when I was getting married!

We'll chat about your proposal stories and paper dreams–it'll be fun, promise. And I'll get you all fixed up for your big day, from answering your wedding etiquette questions to helping you navigate the ins and outs of wedding stationery.

I quit my dream job in October of 2015—and the rest is history. Now, I’m happy to say that I’ve helped thousands of brides share the joy of their big day through floral wedding invitation suites.

And when I look back on the past six years, I’ve never felt happier than the day I chose paper over Prada.

Who is Betty Lu?
My company is named in honor of my great aunt, Betty, who passed away of cancer in 2012. She was a wonderful woman with a beautiful voice, an amazing hostess and a fantastic cook. Unfortunately, she suffered many misfortunes in life.

She died of cancer in 2012, and the following year Betty Lu Paperie was created in her honor. “Betty Lu” was the name her foster grandchildren gave her. Now, I hope her name will live on forever in a positive light and that she will be remembered as an amazing woman. Her favorite flower, birds of paradise, is sketched in the logo.

In remembrance of my Aunt Betty, a portion of proceeds are donated to Joyce Meyer Ministries to help women in need all over the world.

Frequently asked questions
What is your turnaround time?

For most items, printing takes 5 business days and then your order will ship afterward via FedEx Ground. But, please check each listing for more accurate information.

Letterpress and foil printing, as well as invitations with lined envelopes take 15 business days to produce/assemble and ship afterward.

Do you sell templates? Can I buy the artwork used in your stationery?

No, I don't offer templates, and I don't sell the artwork included in my stationery.

I have 14 years of industry experience in graphic design and stationery design, plus 3 Design House Prep School Courses and 1 Stationer's Summit under my belt. I also have over 1,500 five star reviews from real brides just like you.

As a client of mine, you can comfortably rely on my expertise to give you the wedding stationery of your dreams. Expect high quality stationery that is professionally printed using the best paper and print shops possible.

There are no DIY headaches over here! I'll take care of all the design and printing for you, so you can spend the rest of your time focusing on life, love and happily ever after.

Can I use my own wording or change color of artwork?

Yes, all wording is personalized with your wedding details. You can add meal options, parents' names, groom's parents' names, etc. Just make sure to leave your custom wording in the notes at checkout, and I'll take care of the rest!

Custom artwork color changes are $40. You may order custom colors from the add-on section of our shop here: https://etsy.me/2MvtdA8 Font ink color changes are complimentary.

Can I order a custom sample personalized with my details?

Samples are mailed exactly as shown. Samples are designed so you can see the colors, quality and clarity before placing a full order. I am unable to offer personalized samples due to the amount of time it takes to design, produce and individually package each order.

How much customization is allowed for stationery?

Stationery is semi-custom. Artwork colors can be changed for $40. Additionally, all wording can be personalized to meet your needs.

Can you send a proof before I place my order?

No, I do not provide proofs prior to a purchase. Rest assured, you'll be working with a stationer who has served over 6,000 clients since 2013 and 14 years of professional industry experience in graphic design and stationery design.

Three complimentary rounds of revisions are included with every order, and I won't print anything unless it is approved by you.

What if there is a typo?

Betty Lu Paperie is not liable for typos. Please make sure everything is correct on your stationery proofs, prior to submitting approval to print.

There are many opportunities to view, proofread and revise your proofs. I recommend having three other people, aside from yourself, review proofs.

Can you tell me where you got ______?

No, suppliers, artwork, fonts, materials, etc. are proprietary information.

I keep this information private out of respect to my clients, who trust that their investment will go towards unique, high quality materials–that I've spent years and thousands of dollars sourcing–in order to provide them the best experience possible.

Do you ship internationally?

Unfortunately we do not ship overseas at this time. International shipping is costly. Most countries charge you an additional import tax upon delivery. Additionally, there are many risk factors involved with lost packages or delays. While I would love to serve clients abroad, the shipping process is simply too high-risk and stressful. I always strive to make sure my clients have the best experience working with me, and right now I don't feel I can adequately meet the needs of overseas clients for these reasons.

Refunds, Cancellations and Other Terms

Due to the custom nature of stationery, refunds are not available. To cancel, please contact me within 24 hours of purchase. After this time, there is a 25% cancellation fee. Cancellation is only available to those who have not received a proof, print or any other format of stationery via email, mail or other method.

Betty Lu, Inc. cannot offer returns, refunds or exchanges in the event of cancellations or event changes.

Betty Lu, inc. is not liable for lost packages, weather delays or any other delays due to shipping.
