    1. Initial Consultation

    First contact Amelia to schedule a consultation by email, phone or in person. Your initial consultation should occur a minimum of 4-6 months before your wedding date. On occasion we will accept clients with shorter turn around times if our schedule permits.  A nominal fee to accomodate the rush will be added to the order.  During this initial meeting we will discuss the event, your ideas, your personality and style in order to create a unique Custom design to accurately reflect you and your event. We will then email you a detailed quote and give you a specific time line for completion of your invitations.

    2. DESIGN

    Once your invitation design is finalized you can place your order by completing the Order Form, and emailing it to us. Or you can call and place your order over the phone. We require a 50% Deposit (non-refundable) and the remainder at time of shipping or pick up, we accept Visa, Mastercard or personal check if purchasing in the Raleigh/Durham Triangle area or Greensboro Triad area.  All final payments must be made by either Visa, Mastercard or in cash. Upon receipt of your deposit, we will design your invitation layout and email you a digital proof for your feedback, we will make any requested alterations and email it to you for final approval.


    When the design is to your satisfaction, you will then give us approval for printing. All of our creations are professionally printed with the utmost attention to detail. After printing, we will meticulously assemble and contact you to either pick up your order (locally) or have it shipped via UPS.


    Please note that because all amelia irene designs are handmade, the entire design process from consultation to completion can take anywhere from 6-12 weeks depending on the design. Therefore it's important to order Samples and book your Consultation as early as possible. If our schedule permits on occasion we will accept rush orders that require less than 6 weeks turn around.  A nominal fee will be added to the order to accomodate the rush and extra hands required to complete the invitations.
