Important Updates

** I will be on maternity leave for part of Feb/March. If you would like to schedule a consultation, please do so now as I will be unavailable for in-person meetings from approx. February 18th-March 25th. Also, it looks like we will soon be transitioning to a mostly online ordering system. There will be many new options and designs added that can be fully customized with your wedding colors, text and font selections. While I've always tried to do as much of the process in person as possible, with higher order demands and a growing family this option will be best for accommodating future orders. Samples will be available to order through the website as well so that you can see the quality in person.

Polka Dots & Daisies is dedicated to bringing you the best products and design at a reasonable cost and with optimum customer service. Please feel free to call or email with any questions you may have. Thanks for your understanding and support!

Melanie + Roman: French Country Wedding Invite

Mel was one of the lovely brides I was able to work with in 2012. She had fabulous taste and a great vision for her wedding. I had a blast designing this French Country inspired ensemble to coordinate with her wedding colors and style. The hand-drawn floral elements were created just for her! I also designed a return address rubber stamp to coordinate with the whole design. Stamps can be made to go with any of our invitation styles.

Our thick, smooth matte stock was used on these invitations to achieve a chic and expensive feel. The rounded corners add extra interest. I also like the combination of using stripes as the background for the invitation and the floral accent from the invite as a border around the insert card. This helps give the overall invite suite some diversity and uniqueness. The European flap brown kraft envelopes added another texture/dimension and also made the perfect backdrop for the custom stamped return address.
