Sarah is absolutely amazing to work with! One word of advise is to book her now and tell her when you want her to start. It's only $40 or $50 dollars to lock in your date so I would do that. Once you book her, she will send you a questionaire which is very extensive. It is as simple as asking your name, wedding date etc...an extensive as what your vision is, colors, themes etc. I also sent a few pictures and our color palette as example of things that we liked. Sarah nailed our vision on the first try but not just that, she sent 3 different concepts that she came up with. Out of the 3 we loved 2 and had a hard time choosing. Even our bridal party was mixed (this is how much fun we had). In either case, after all was said and done she is very reasonable for what we wanted.
I don't want to scare anyone about pricing so I will pm you. Just now that we are not DIY people at all. I mean there are very few things that I will do, however; being a VP of 5 health centers, having a very active 10 year old, and with FI being a bus driver, our schedules aren't friendly for DIY stuff.. ;-)
All in all we purchased:
150 Boarding Passes with our return address on the envelopes, and all envelopes were addressed to each of our guest (I sent her names and addresses in a word document)
Our envelopes are shimmer as well as the STDs it helps to bring out our colors and is a little thicker. The holder is a new paper out which feels so silky and smooth which cost a little more.
We are sending these out on the on the 13th of April, as we will have everything settled with our TA and would have added our engagement photos on our website. Speaking of which, if you ladies wouldn't mind going to my website (information on the STD) and tell me what you think. I would appreciate it. It's not finished but almost.
I was doing a cleanse up until about a week ago, but don't plan on starting back on a regimented diet until about mid April also (we go on vacay first week). Simple is best! Especially if you are doing them outside...its a nice contrast. There are times I wanted to get braces again even though I had them already and still have straight teeth...I just loved how my teeth were RIGHT after I got them off back in high school.
I actually have been looking into Sarah from Sproullie designs for my boarding pass invites too! I was planning on DIY, but I couldn't figure out how to get them to look like they should! Plus the idea of one less thing to stress about sounds nice. Did you have yours completely customized? Did she do all the wording too? That is one thing about them...I have NO IDEA what to put on them (or how many tickets to put in each one). Do you mind me asking how much it ended up costing you? They are awesome by the way!
