Lauren's message in a bottle invitations are just beautiful. The enclosures coordinate perfectly with the invitation inside the bottle, it all matches, and I guarantee that your guests will have never seen anything like this. So unique and perfect for a beach themed wedding or party!

how my custom invitations sprang to life

I’m a sucker for fashion runway shows, flea markets, french movies starring Audrey Tautou, the sights and sounds of Les Miserables and Panda bears. Chocolate chip cookies are my sweet guilty pleasure and my love for traveling inspires my creative juices.

I’m a big fan of handmade and textured papers, and have an unrelenting affinity for helvetica font, the color grey, and 3-D objects. (rest assured, not always all at once!) I love smart, original, simple design. I crave design with a purpose, a tangible outcome, and attached to something meaningful.

That’s where you come in.

I have been fortunate enough to make my passion my profession. A creative careerist with significant experience as a graphic designer in the advertising, print and fashion industries, it wasn’t long before I found myself jumping at the opportunity to design wedding invitations for friends and family. In 2008, I threw caution to the wind and nurtured this hobby into the one-on-one, custom design service it is today.
Based in New York City, I work from my home studio with easy access to my husband, panda cams, and those darn chocolate chip cookies.

To get started...
I will send you sample wording to help you decide on special wording for your custom invitations. If you choose to write your own wording, please feel free. I always encourage clients to do as much on their own as they can. One of a kind is always best!

We can also discuss via the telephone about your wedding, so I can get a good idea of the look and feel you are going for. The more I know the better! Colors, theme, flowers and venue are all small details that will help me put together an invitation to fit your occasion.

I will send you proofs via email with a few different layouts and font choices to choose from. Once we settle on the design, I will put together an actual sample for you and send you an image via email to see it. If you are happy with what you see I can then mail it to you so you can see and feel what it will look and feel like in person.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Master Card

I work for free - until the contract is signed!

Once the contract is signed, full payment must be made if the order is being shipped. If you are a local customer in the tri-state area, I will take a 50% deposit, and when you pick up the job, the remaining 50% can be paid.
I ship via UPS or FED EX.
The tracking number will be sent to you via email.
Everything will be packed and boxed carefully...always with love...
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the fact that each job is custom, sadly there are no refunds or returns.

After the proofs are signed off on and the contract is signed, I am not responsible for any text errors. I will carefully review everything and I expect my clients to do the same. I encourage you to have at least 3 other people besides you to read everything over!
Additional policies and FAQs
Paper, Fonts + Text

All fonts, paper choices and colors are all your choice. During our phone discussion, you will tell me your color scheme and send me any links to wedding inspiration you like. This will help me understand your taste and help in my decision making of what papers and fonts to use.
I use a variety of papers for each project- matte, metallic, linen are just a few
I also love working with textured papers which you can see on my website.

Envelope Printing
You will provide me with your guest list in a word doc, for me to print the addresses on your main envelope.
I will send you a PDf to see how each envelope will look like.
I always choose the same font and color from the invitation to use for the envelopes.
I will also need an address for the return address on the main envelope as well as the response card envelope.
