I love weddings & designing stationery for my clients. To be involved in the planning of a couple’s special day is the best perk of my job by far. I really do think stationery is one of the most important elements of a wedding. It’s the guests first glimpse into your wedding, the first excitement & the beginning of the build up to your wedding day. At The Curious Wren we create bespoke stationery that is tailored to you, your wedding & your budget. With over 7 years experience and knowledge in the design industry & a large varied portfolio, I am capable of creating the specific stationery you have in mind. Located on Eccleshall high street I pride my designs, shop & my reputation. Having experienced planning my own wedding in 2015 I absolutely understand the stresses planning can entail, I make the process easy, enjoyable & stress free for my clients.

Sounds great, where do we begin?
Firstly, if you’re interested lets have a chat! Pop in to the shop or send me a message. I like to set up an initial meeting for us both & you can tell me everything about your Wedding plans. We can discuss colours, themes, ideas & more. It’s a chance for me to really get a feel for what you’re looking for & for you to see what we can create for your big day.
If you have any of the following please bring them along to this first meeting;
• When the big day is
• The location & venue
• What stationery pieces you are interested in discussing (table plan, numbers, menus etc)
• Any deadlines (to get wedding invitations out by)
• Quantities required (day and evening guests)
• Designs/ colours/ theme/ look you are interested in
• Pinterest boards
Once we have had our initial chat I will try to get back to you within 1 working week with an email containing a breakdown quote. The breakdown of the quote is to help you tailor your order to exactly what you would like. I pride myself on my work, designs and reputation of The Curious Wren here in Eccleshall. I breakdown the prices per product and design time required for my clients which means you can look over everything & have a choice to alter it to your desire. This ensures I can create the perfect tailored wedding stationery suited to both your wants & your budget.
Once you're happy with the order I ask for a deposit of 50% of the initial quote before beginning work. Once this is received, we aim to have samples within 2 weeks. This is to ensure my time as I am limited to the number of clients I work with. This is to ensure the quality of the stationery is perfect.
From the first set of samples, we can make changes and tweaks, aiming to go to production by the second set of samples. I will send photos of progress for you to over see or we can arrange a meeting to discuss. Once approved I will begin to create your order (I ask you give 2 weeks for the order to be created from the this approval date).
After the Invitation order is completed we will know you both well and have your style down to a tee. This means that the designs of your following stationery order will flow organically from your invitation tying everything together beautifully.
What stationery can you produce?
We can create a wide range of items, pieces include (but are absolutely not limited to):
Save the dates/ Invitations
Order of services/ Order of the day
Table Plans/ numbers
Mirrors boards/ Chalk boards/ Signs
Thank you cards
Special personalised cards for the bridal party
Favours - such as stickers (to be placed on jam jars)
When are you able to see us for an appointment?
I understand how tricky it can be to arrange meetings during working hours, so will happily schedule meetings to when it suits you. You can also drop by the shop should you wish to discuss anything!
We need something within the next few weeks, is there anything you can do?
We do work in advance to ensure we have the time & materials. However it is always worth asking! Do get in touch & lets have a chat to see if we can help.
Where do you print your stationery?
All stationery is printed and handmade here at The Curious Wren and I don't outsource any part of the process. You can normally see me working on clients orders during shop hours.
Do I have to be local to order stationery from The Curious Wren?
If you’re not able to make it to the shop for an appointment, we have lots of creative ways of sharing ideas and involving you in the design process. We can discuss your requirements through email and post samples out to you.
