How my floral wedding invitation shop got started...

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. This is my story.

Yep–you ready 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 loved (and still do!) every minute of my career as a stationer.

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.

The heart of my business is helping women. I enjoy creating stationery that gets guests excited for your big day. I also have a passion for helping women in need. For this reason and 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.

Can I use my own wording?

Yes, I will use your custom wording for wedding stationery. Just leave a note for me in the notes to seller box at checkout, and I'll take care of the rest!

Can you change the colors of artwork and fonts?

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?

At this time, we do not offer custom printed samples. This is due to the amount of time it takes to design, produce and package our stationery. You may order a sample set through our shop so you can see the look and feel of our stationery prior to ordering.

How much customization is allowed for stationery?

Our stationery is semi-custom. This means artwork colors can be changed for $40 and you may choose a different font other than what is shown. All wording is 100% customizable with your details. Smaller items, such as gift tags and website/registry cards, have limited writing space.

Can you send a proof before I place my order?

We do not provide proofs prior to a purchase. While it may seem like an easy or quick task, a lot of time, attention and effort goes into developing your proof to make sure it is perfect before being sent to you. 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 responsible for any errors or typos that are approved by clients during the proofing process. This is why carefully proofing your stationery is crucial. You will have many opportunities to view, proofread and revise your proofs.

OFFICE HOURS

I try to respond to all messages as quickly as possible. The best times to reach me are during office hours below.

OFFICE HOURS:
Monday–Friday: 8am to 5pm

Proofs, printable files, and shipments are not sent during weekends. I reserve evenings and weekends for time with my family. I appreciate your patience and understanding as I strive to maintain a healthy work/life balance.

Do you ship internationally?

Unfortunately we do not ship overseas at this time. International shipping is quite costly, and there are so many risk factors involved with lost packages or delays. Not to mention, many countries charge you an additional import tax upon delivery. 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.
