When you purchase Handcrafted you are purchasing a piece of the makers heart however unfortunately the price can mount up with not only the cost of materials but also the endless hours of labour it takes to create them. There are ways & means of reducing the price of your favourite invitation such as discarding RSVP envelope, reducing the size of the invitation, opting for flat or stacking style rather than pocketfold, limiting the number of insert cards and limiting ‘finnacky’ features such as tags. If the cost of your invitation is above your budget please don’t be afraid to ask for variations.
Insert cards include most commonly RSVP card and Wishing Well card. Two insert cards are included in the price of each invitation however you are most welcome to add further cards for an additional fee. Insert cards can include whatever you wish, in the past we have done directions complete with a map, accommodation options, guest information & even song request cards. With pocket fold invitations insert cards slip inside a pocket within the invitation, sometimes in a tiered design and stacking style invitations they just stack with the invitation.
Unlike mass produced products and ‘print runs’ each and every invitation at Simply Stunning Stationery Wedding Invitations is handcrafted to order. So the time it takes to make one single invitation individually is the same whether it’s for an order of 20 or an order of 100. Likewise, there’s no penalty for very small orders, the price stays the same for each invitation.
All invitations are fully customised with your choice of colours and theme. Most invitations are easily adapted to your colour choice including the colour of the pocket, card, ribbon and ink. Some are more suitable for changing colours than others, simply tell us what you’re thinking and we’ll see what we can do.
You are most welcome to provide ideas and we can customise an invitation especially for you however we will not duplicate designs from other designers. We all work very hard on our designs and don’t deserve them to be replicated.
You are most welcome to purchase a sample invitation. Purchasing a sample is the perfect way to judge the craftsmanship and get a feel for your invitation prior to committing to an order. Samples are not personalised in any way and are made from excess stock only however you may receive swatches of materials, such as ribbon and card, with your sample to select the perfect colour combination for your invitation. Clicking either of the links below will lead you to the purchase of a sample.
During the process, once you’ve provided the details of your wedding and your choice of wording, you’ll receive a number of font choices to choose from or if you have a particularly favourite font you are quite welcome to nominate it for your invitations The font you choose flows through the invitation including the insert cards, outer envelopes and even onto the reception stationery.
Upon placing an order with Simply Stunning Stationery you’ll receive a checklist to provide the details of your wedding. Included in the checklist is a number of wording suggestions for you to choose or you are quite welcome to write your own. Likewise, if you choose a Wishing Well you’ll be provided a number of suggestions or you’re quite welcome to write your own.
At Simply Stunning Stationery there is no minimum order, you are quite welcome to order one invitation, likewise there is no maximum order.
All invitations come with outer envelopes addressed with matching fonts following through from the invitation. You are most welcome to choose the colour of your envelope to compliment your invitation and also add a coordinated envelope liner.
Simply Stunning Stationery was proud to exhibit again this year at the Fraser Coast Bridal Expo held at the Hervey Bay PCYC in June.
Bridal expos are a wonderful tool for wedding planning with so many suppliers in the one place. It’s also an opportunity for those in the industry to catch up and meet new people. Makes one want to get married again with so many amazing, beautiful ideas.
Work has been filtering through since the Expo. Thank You to all the brides that stopped by seeking their perfect invitations.
See everyone again next year.

Well, it has been a busy start to 2015! Recently, Simply Stunning Stationery exhibited at two bridal expos (Kondari Resort Wedding Expo & The Beach House Hotel Bridal & Event Expo).
We had a great time meeting some lovely couples and discussing their upcoming weddings!
Here are some photos of our new expo set up with amazing display shelving made by my dad!!
We are excited to be exhibiting again in June at the Hervey Bay PCYC Wedding Expo! We hope to see you there!
What a great day Simply Stunning Stationery had exhibiting at the first Bayswater Hotel Wedding Expo, in Hervey Bay, Queensland. It was a stunning day, with many local wedding suppliers displaying what they do best!
It was really lovely to meet lovely couples preparing for their big day, and to get an idea of what is trending at the moment in the way of wedding themes & to see what invitation designs were most popular with brides-to-be!
One of the most popular designs was the Rustic Burlap & Button Pocket Invitation. This invitation is perfect for a Rustic Vintage themed wedding & it seems the 2013 popular rustic/vintage style is here to stay a little while longer yet! Brides-to-be seem to be keen to have a pocket style invitation to hold all the extra insert cards!
Ceremony program paddle fans were also super popular on the day – and perfect for our coastal location! These order of service fans are the perfect touch for your beach or outdoor ceremony – your guests can keep themselves cool & it is a great way to let your guests know who’s who in the bridal party and what is happening during the ceremony.
These fans are available in any colour, and can be single or double-sided, with any ribbon embellishment! They are the perfect keepsake for your guests to remember your gorgeous ceremony too!
The Bayswater Hotel teamed up with Events by Lewis to create two table settings out on the deck, to give brides a taste of what they can do, and to help prospective brides imagine their reception right there overlooking gorgeous Hervey Bay and The Pier.

It was a great day at the Bayswater Hotel & we are looking forward to meeting more lovely brides-to-be at the Hervey Bay PCYC wedding expo in June!
Hope to see you there!
