The invitation is really the moment when the scene starts to be set for your wedding. It is the first glimpse your guests get into the feel and vision of your event. Therefore, it is vital that you make sure that you use a designer that is passionate and cares about your wedding. With that, I introduce you to my next featured wedding professional Stacey Crowhurst from Lacey Lou Designs!
I first met Stacey on a bridal forum a few years ago when Stacey was in the process of planning her own wedding. I got to know Stacey very well and was very privileged to be able to share in most details of her exciting wedding journey. It gave me a great insight into the sort of person that Stacey is and I can assure that she will really look after you and make your stationery one of the easiest part of planning your wedding.

What drew you to Invitation Design as a profession?
I’ve always had a passion for paper arts. Event planning is a love of mine and when it came to designing invitations for these events, I spent hours researching the best products at the cheapest prices and spent hours mixing different materials together. It was actually my husband that told me to give it a go and see if others where interested in what I created after designing our wedding invitations 3 times. I found there was a lot of high end products and extremely cheap, 1 card invitations, but there was no in between.
What do you feel sets you apart as a Invitation Supplier?
Communication. The internet is just way too easy to hide behind, there are too many suppliers out there not willing to respond to potential clients ASAP. It was something I felt very strongly about, I want my clients to be able to contact me at any time of the day, knowing it will be only a few hours until they receive a reply. We keep in constant contact during orders, so clients feel at ease and get more and more excited every email.
What do you love most about your job?
The lovely words I hear back from brides about how their order has made their wedding finally feel real. Makes my day!
