A “Buy Local” Wedding: The Stationary

I got lucky. I had a meeting set up back in February lined up with a wedding business near the beach to look through options for wedding invitations. The employee was a no-show. Feeling very frustrated because I knew I had a limited amount of weekends to plan before my summer farmer’s market commitments, I pulled around back to leave and saw a sign that said “Paper Dollz Stationary”. A car was parked outside and a light was on inside. I thought “Hmm, why not?”  I’m so glad I walked in and the rest is history………

Paper Dollz is a two-man team in Rehoboth, DE. I met with Allison Veith and she listened to my theme and vision for the big day. She worked with her business partner, Stef Stratton, to design our Save the Date magnets, invitation set, and ceremony program. There were several advantages to working with a small, local business such as:

  • Always being able to talk to someone personally
  • Samples and ideas of trends in stationary
  • The chance to edit and revise drafts several times
  • No time needed for shipping and no shipping costs
  • Advice from professionals on wording and technique (I realized quickly that I needed major help with this!)
  • Coordinating set of stationary throughout series of events

I will admit, I dreaded the detail and time in which all of the stationary required. But these girls made it so much more bearable for me. I trusted them and I think that says it all. Thanks, Stef and Allison a.k.a. Paper Dollz Stationary!

Wedding Programs

Here is a picture of our wedding ceremony programs. We went through several revisions and I love the way they turned out. They match our previous invitations and save the date magnets sent out. Paper Dollz will help coordinate embellishments as well, such as the ribbon detail.
