What to Expect at your First
Wedding Invitation Appointment

We highly recommend that you make an appointment in order to deliver service that Ashley's is known for. We want to be sure that we reserve time just for you, that our invitation albums are available for you, and that we have a dedicated invitation consultant available to work with you.

Since we have a busy retail store in addition to our wedding invitation business, it is very difficult to accommodate walk-ins and we want to be sure we have a chance to give you 100% of our attention.

When your appointment is confirmed, we will send you a link to an online Wedding Questionnaire that we ask you to complete and submit to us at least a day prior to your appointment. (It's quick and easy).

Once we know your vision for your invitation we will go over different printing methods and then start showing you options that fits your vision. We'll also tell you about ways that you can customize designs. We'll show you as many typestyles, ink colors, motifs, backers, pocket folds, and envelope liners as you'd like.

We answer any and all of your questions about design, pricing, and etiquette. If, for some reason, we don't know the answer to the question, we will find out promptly.

Some clients fall in love with an invitation at the first appointment and place their order during the first appointment. For others, they want to see all of the available options, narrow their choices and come back a second (or third) time to finalize their vision. Either way is perfectly fine with us.

After the first appointment, we can do a lot by phone, email and online. We work with clients all over the globe, so shipping and working remotely are not a problem.
